Friday's Fave #34

Friday - 9.20.2013

Wow this week went by so fast! We got so much done on the house, it feels so good! As you may have noticed I have been back to blogging on a more consistent basis and that feels good too. I have been listening to these motivation calls every day and man are they really helping me to stay focused and positive. I feel great!

I linked up with Lisa-Jo Barker for 5 Minute Friday. For this one she gives you a topic and you have to write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. So this weeks topic is...


Wow I don't know why but when I saw Lisa's post about the word She and the picture she had posted with it, it instantly reminded me of my grandma's garden. She passed away almost two years ago. She was such a strong, faithful and little bit wacky woman. I really do miss her, mostly her wisdom and humor. She taught me so much about life. Always looking at things with laughter and jokes. She didn't take life too seriously.

Before things got really bad, she still looked real good here. That's my son, her, me and my hubby.
In the final months of her life we got to go up a visit her. As hard as it was seeing her deteriorate so quickly from the cancer, it also makes me smile thinking how silly she was. She made everyone sit in the living room (her 3 kids (one being my dad) and the 4 of the 6 grandchildren (myself included) and my two kids, which were her great grand kids) and put Oreo's on our foreheads and try to get the in our mouths with out using our hands. It was so funny.

She was so strong though facing death, she knew it was coming and just looked it square in the face and yelled "Bring it on!" Ok maybe not exactly like that, but she had such courage and faith it was so up building. One day when I see her again I will be able to tell her that her example lead the way for me.

OMG Becky I love this lady anyway, but I think I might love her a little more right now. This post is seriously funny! I have tried doing the annoying things my kids do back to them but this takes it to a whole new level. Usually my 4 year old just repeats herself til you just want to scream. So I'll do it back to her 100 times worse, till she's yelling at me to quit repeating myself. But pooping... really? Good job mom!
