Let's Just Stop

...and give thanks!  Despite failed budgets, the Euro tanking, and Egypt & Syria in, in, words fail.
...and of course, Black Friday roaring toward us like a train (wreck?!).  Yikes!

In the midst of mayhem and marketing, I will be thankful--I choose to be thankful!

-for the fact that  God is sovereign and over all--my convoluted circumstances as well as the global turmoil

-for family that's healthy, happy, employed, and walking with the Lord

-for friends old and new, near and far

-for my church family spread all over the world

-for the pleasures and comforts of home(s)

-for beauty that God has created, or allowed man to, simply for it's own beauty

Supreme Granny Moments

As anybody who blogs knows, sometimes life just gets too busy to blog.  ...but recent Granny experiences have been too precious to let get by!  So, first, a peek back at the time I got to share with my Munchkins in WA state when I first flew back to the US in early October.  I got to tag-team grandparent with the other granny, a.k.a, Grammy, while Ben & Jana went gallivanting off to Presbytery in Minnesota.  We had a high old time during that week.  I actually think that jet lag only enhanced the experience!  Fun, fun, fun!  Especially the part when Lauren asked for a glass of wine at week's end and the Parent Units were on their way home :D

Next, I'll blog about the the first Spend-the-Night-at-Granny's this last weekend.  Stay tuned!

OH!!!  AND I had the priviledge to get Hannah started sewing!!  Grand success!

We rejoiced to have Mom back.  Lots :)

Let's live all the way home. Beth Moore
Amen to that!


Last night we had a grand time at our church Harvest Party--I went as Super Granny :) and helped out with the cake walk.  Being SG, we used an iPod for the cake walk music, amazing many older celebrants ;)  However, I'm sure many of us will have Laura Corlin's version of Grandma's Feather Bed on a continuous brain loop for days and days!
