About Me

My photo
I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 42 wonderful years. I have been blessed with one daughter who is grown and gone! She and her hubby have blessed us with a precious grandchild, Darbee Rae. She is eight years old and the sunshine in our days. I have always been a stay at home maid, cook, doctor, babysitter, taxi, wife, mother, and grandmother. I enjoy crafting. My interests include primitives, vintage and colonial styles. I love decorating my home. I enjoy traveling with my hubby and friends, reading, and trying different recipes. I am a Christian and enjoy activities within my church. I hope you enjoy reading about my daily adventures in crafting, shopping, and enjoying life thru the eyes of my darling grand daughter.

Who Will You Thank Today?

Hello Everyone.  Today is a very sentimental day for me as my Daddy served in WW11 and I miss him still even though he has been gone for quite some time now.  I visitied his grave site yesterday.
Those of you who follow me regularly know Holly and know the relationship I have with my daughter, my only child.  Her PawPaw passed away before she became engaged to be married, however he had met Stacy.  He told me one day after he had become quite ill that he would never live to see her married (and he didn't) but Stacy would be the man she would marry. (and he was)

Holly has a blog,"Popscicles and Pigtails" and today she paid tribute to her Paw Paw.  I could have never said it better.  It would so do my heart good if you would take the time to visit and look at the videos and recordings she made of her "Paw Paw", my Dad and also my  Hero.  Thank you Holly.  So beautifully done. You can visit her here.  Hoping a great evening for everyone.
