happy birthday Mamaw and a little more...




Oh what a beautiful day. And it also happens to be my mother in law's 91st birthday. She is quite a lady for her age. Does not have an ache or a pain. She has certainly led a Godly life and lived her entire life living for the Lord, doing his service. God has truly been good to a very deserving woman. She only has the one child, Jerrell and I thank her for that.... well
at times I do... :)

I April Fooled myself yesterday and didn't even know it. I was reminded by my son that I too would have a birthday coming up on the 17th. I told him that I would be 64. Jeff quickly corrected me and said " no Moo, you will be 63." Oh really!!! I declare I was happy all day for having that extra year that I had already lost. Sometimes I wonder whether I am going or coming.

Our oldest son and his family will be coming in tomorrow and yes I am a bit excited and nervous all at the same time. Of all times for me to start back having angina attacks, but I did yesterday morning. The first one woke me up at 4:11 as I saw the clock when I reached on the night stand for my nitro and then another one got me around 8 right after I got up. It worries me more since I am taking 4 pills a day for it and it had been working really well. I think the combo of that fact and also getting things ready for Kevin and his family has gotten me all dithered up. I was up until after midnight last night and was up at 5:30 this morning. I had too much to try to do today; had zero energy to do it, but I got all I wanted to do done and Jerrell will finish up with the vacuuming when he gets off work today. He will work tomorrow and take off on Wednesday since they will be leaving out on Thursday morning for South Carolina.

The last thing I told Kev was to be sure and pack the CAMERA, so I will try to get some pictures to post for you folks while they are here. Hope old dogs can still be taught new tricks. That's what I am a thinking.

I had a phone call smack in the middle of this, so I am outta here. Will be back soon as I can. Have a great day everyone!


God Bless!

Moobear, you know, I find that things I get excited about can bring on attack as well as being tired and other things. Take care of yourself and enjoy your family being home. I know that is easier said than done. God bless you and your family. connie from Texas

Your MIL doesn't look 91. I told my MIL the other day she was 94 and she she "I thought I was 84, no wonder I feel so bad".
Hope you are over the angina attacks. I will write more to you.

Your MIL looks much younger than 91. Enjoy your son and family's visit, but take care of yourself.
