ME:  "What do you want for Christmas, Mouse?"

MOUSE:  "I want a blanket like the one you have with pictures of you and Grandpa on it."

ME:  "What kinds of pictures would you like to be on your blanket?"

MOUSE:  "Nana, I want it to be filled with lots of pictures of you and me!"  😱

NANA:  "I will see what I can do, sweetheart!"  (heart melts)


Mouse opens present......

"NANAAAAA.....it's just what I wanted!"  (insert big hug and HUGE smile here)

Oh, that child just melts my heart!! ❤

Popsicle kisses and big bear hugs,
Little red wagons and jars full of bugs,

I have wanted a wooden drying rack for a long time. I love old things and was determined I was not going to purchase a new one but scout out yard sales and thrift stores until I found. You can imagine how thrilled I was when I found this one at Hunt & Peck here in town. As much as I love the one I have, I do need another one or make myself a larger one.

Do you use a wooden drying rack? Post a picture below if you do! 😀

Sweet Lord ~ I thank You for every breath that I take and for everyday You give to me to honor and follow Your will. I pray that you keep my granddaughters in Your arms and safe from all harm. Please prepare for her a godly man with a burning desire to follow You. A husband whose love for her is only outmatched by his love for You. A man who will cherish her and build her up. A man who will be a good father and provider. A man of integrity and courage. A faithful, kind, gentle and honest man. A man who never gives up and works hard. A selfless and humble man. A man who devotes himself to You and gives to others without complaint. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us........AMEN!
