Throwback Thursday, Bringing It Home | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Do y’all know what “Throwback Thursday” is?  There’s no shame if you don’t 😊 It’s a fairly new social phenomenon… You post old photos from the past & hashtag it like this – #ThrowbackThursday OR #TBT – Then post it on your social media page for all the world to see 😊 I had already done today’s blog and was about to publish it this morning when my son came out to go to work with my crew. I literally got a lump in my throat thinking about how fast time flies by… So today, a short #TBT for ya.

This is a picture of Jacob from 10 years ago at one of our Butterfly House programs. He has grown up at the Nursery & Loves it ❤️

This one is from 12 or so years back. Jacob and his Grandad at a Pond Club Event 😊

Lot of great memories and Throwback Thursday pics of that little boy from yesterday.

Cut to 2019… Now he is 17 years old & 6’ 3”! Time flies by folks….

Now Jacob is learning the ropes of working in the field with the crew. And Loving it! 🌞

This is my offering on #ThrowbackThursday ! A look back & a glimpse of what’s to come❤️

 

Have a GREAT Day!

Sunday Reflections…

I’ve been up since before the sun rise thinking about the significance of Fathers Day… I have been so blessed as a son AND as a father myself. My best memories of childhood are linked to my dad – fishing, hunting, learning how to work and do things, you name it! The love of animals and taking care of my first pet all goes back to my experiences with my Dad too!

That’s me with my dad & my first dog Heidi – He let me pick out my very 1st. dog on my own 😊 In this picture I’m wearing his uniform hat and his coat… of course. He was & still is the BEST dad in the world! Fathers Day is today! We are going to lunch & I’m looking forward to it 😊

My dad was a professional firefighter. Growing up I loved visiting the station and hanging out with him and the other firemen. They were family. I found this old picture a few years back, it goes way back and is a favorite of mine now. Dad was proud to have me at the station even when I was so little…

I was a toddler in this picture. Around 1 year old. This one was at Station #2 down on Westwood. I literally grew up there 🙂 GREAT memories of that place and the time we all spent there.

I’m so lucky to have so much more than a “Father”, I have a Dad!

Dad
He never looks for praises
He’s never one to boast
He just goes on quietly working
For those he loves the most
His dreams are seldom spoken
His wants are very few
And most of the time his worries
Will go unspoken too
He’s there… A firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold to
In times of stress and strife
a True friend we can turn to
When times are good or bad
One of our greatest blessings,
The man that we call Dad.
