Sunday Reflections…

It’s so nice to have family staying with us for a spell. Even if they are in town for a funeral… Or should I say a “Celebration of Life”! My cousins and sister and myself spent so many good times here on the family place. We would sit up and talk, play, spend all night outside in the dark, many times getting in trouble 😇 Cousins are our first friends as children, at least that’s my experience 😊 For them, it’s coming home again. For me it’s a chance to catch up, visit & break bread together. I got up and cooked breakfast for everyone & we ate and had juice & coffee ☕️. It sure does feel good to have family!

Hey grandpa, what’s fer breakfast? Sausages with onions, fried eggs, toast with jam & save room for some country ham 😊

 

I remember when we were little kids and
would stay at grandma and grandpa’s
house all night.

We would get scolded when we talked in
bed until once again the room would
grow quiet.

Just when we thought we were out of
trouble, one of us would think of some-
thing funny to say. We could hear footsteps
coming down the hall, that meant that grandpa
was on his way.

Now grandma and grandpa could be quite
stern, but never could they be mean.
Mostly it was a lot of love that came
from them, that is what we had seen.

Finally we would settle down for the
night and before we knew it, it was the
next day. We weren’t so anxious to get up
because we had talked the night away.

Grandma would yell, you kids get up,
Get out of bed it’s time for you to eat.
We could already smell the biscuits,
bacon and eggs, we knew we were in for
quite a treat.

We were right because when we saw the
table set with all the goodies galore.
It only made us want to stay a grandma
and grandpa’s house more and more and
more.

It’s a bittersweet reunion, but you count your blessings where you can.

Rest In Peace Mark Asher! 🙏🏻

 

God Bless! Here’s to Sunday Mornings with Family!

Valentines Day is Here! ❤️ | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Happy Valentines Day! To many people around the world, today is the ultimate day. A celebration of Love, Romance & Affection! Someone said “All you need is Love”…

Chocolate sales go through the roof today! Restaurants will have a great turnout all over as well with couples going out for dinner in celebration of their Love and affection for one another.

Some of my friends are naysayers… They say it’s nothing but commercialism. Well, they may be right, but, what’s the alternative? Not celebrating your love and affection for each other today? As for me, we’ve got reservations at 7 😊

This ones for my Valentine 😊 I Love you ❤️ Jo!

Happy Valentines Day to everyone!

PS: Love is celebrated all over the world today, but Valentines Day is not a public holiday anywhere in the world 🌎 Hmmm… 🤔

Sunday Reflections…

Rainy Sunday morning. My wife rolled over and said “let’s just sleep in”… Perfect 👌🏻 Enjoy your Sunday 😊

Sometime a rainy morning is a good thing 😊

There will come soft rain and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white;

Robins will wear their feathery fire,
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

   ~ Sara Teasdale
