{ Moments With Mom }

Sometimes Mom would say things that I found somewhat funny...or maybe I had to look for the humor. 

Mom: Do you live around here?

Me: Do you know who I am?

Mom: Debbie?

Me: Yes, I'm your daughter.

Mom: I thought that was you. 
They grow up fast. 
Before you know it they're old....
but you don't look old.

Me: I'm 67 (at that time)

Mom: Well, you don't look it.

I think she was trying to redeem herself with a couple of those statements....bless her heart. 💜

I was sitting outside this morning after my walk and getting my little garden and flowers watered... and just feeling more joy and peace and contentment than I've had in a while. I felt something lifting from me over the weekend. I can remember after my Daddy passed away the exact place I was when I realized that I didn't feel as sad....the grocery store. God has a sense of humor because that's one of my least favorite places to go.

 Grief is a thief, Y'all....

but I believe I'm crawling out of it. 

And, seeing brand new life kinda helps to put things into perspective, too.

HOPE everybody has a wonderful day. 
I'm heading to stay with the "littles"....
they're so good for this Nannie's heart!


  1. Love the bird nest photos. I remember when my mom first passed, that all throughout the day I'd think, I need to call mom and tell her this. I no longer do that, but I still miss her. It sure is comforting to know that I will see her again someday.

  2. New life, indeed! I am sure your littles enjoyed you as much as you enjoyed them!! Love & hugs sent your way!

  3. Sweet Momma, Bless her heart for sure.


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
