Great Nephew turning one

Little Boy Blue had a full day. Gratefully it was a bit overcast. Look who is walking. Sweet baby walked with my niece (from an elder brother) and I. Grandma (my sister) really out did herself! Goodness what a fiesta. My BIL in the black left in photo is a great guy. Wonderful to be with.

These are my kids second cousins. The girl on the left is half sister by on mother and center child is half sister by a different mother. My great nephew of 7 year old is there half brother.  Gets muddy but a year before the father of my 1 year old and the 7 year old is same he passed away last year. Just days after baby blue was conceived.

Oh all please cover the girl in center please please. This child needs all the covering she can get. Many hope to make effort to gain guardianship for the mom is drugging and the moms third mate was just sent to prison again. She was mother to my 7 year old nephew, at Although a horrible end to a mans future a God send to this little girl. She is the sister to my 7 year old Great nephew. The two of them live a hell daily. It is so terrible. Pray for their mother also. If this young woman's life could turn if would be the greatest thing.

Dash loves babies. So does the whole of the young women. This is a different half brother to my nephew that is 7. We will call him d. . D is a great little kid who has suffered so much. All of these kids are.. It is a tragedy to behold I'll tell you.
This my sister when asked how many grand kids she has she said three and three extras as a bonus. Her daughter also has a one year old.
My goodness my knee was really swollen in the heat. YES heat! 101 today in a semi shaded park. Letting the mister spray me helped but my Beloved suffered the heat. He is not able to be in the sun and has to cover up including a brimmed hat. He was so toasted. This poor baby was too. Dousing him with cool water I tried to cool him. It was just too hot!

Kids had a ball! They love seeing the cousins. These are the only relatives they really ever have contact. And though to me they are all Great nephews and nieces it makes no matter. That is the effects of late life adoption, or child birth for that matter.

We came home to hot kids to shower, imagine the sand in my tubs. Steve mowed the lawn and I cleaned the chicken coop. We got together and did a bit of compost relocating. The garden will be seeded very soon.
Dove is getting so tall. Dash as well. The cousins have a terribly devoid life. Absent of security, abuse of mind spirit and body. It is a real killer I'll tell you my sister is shattered and goes far and above to keep the siblings in contact. The social set of folk many have relation or interaction with convicts of one form or another. Needless to say our attendance was for my sister, great nephew and the other children. A few of the other attendees were there likewise in support of my sister.

Family is precious.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
