Things I Learned This Week

This week I learned that one should

always expect the unexpected

an injury to the eye is very, very painful


I learned that

some medications are really, really expensive

even when they are generic prescriptions


keeping your eyesight is priceless.


Time for more eyedrops...

Ouch-ing-ly yours,

Another Memory

My sons attended a Christian school for many years when they were younger.
One of the special events that the school would have is a Grandparent's Day!
On that day each student could have their grandparents join them for awhile at school
(I had forgotten about this event but my son reminded me of it when I sent him a copy of his artwork by phone)
According to my son, this was made for that day which fell near Thanksgiving.

My mom kept this for all those years--her grandchildren were well loved by her and she prayed consistently for them all. I hope that as long as God gives me life, I will do the same.
Thank you mom for all the prayers over the years + blessings to all you praying grandparents out there!

A Piece of My Past Comes Home

The Baby Book mom made for me talked about it--

I had received it as a gift on my second Christmas

and I remembered seeing it too off and on over the years...

but it wasn't at our home, so where was it?

Last weekend I made a trip to my parents' home to help my sibling.

As we sorted stuff in our parents' garage--

we found lots of things, but most importantly we found it!!
A little worse for the wear (just like me),

but still very capable of bringing a BIG smile

to this grown up girl with a child's heart-
who long ago left her parents' home to become a wife,

then a mother, and finally a grandmother.

And meanwhile, my beloved rocker stayed behind all those years waiting patiently,

for just the right time to become a gift to that child (me) again...

Thanks mom!


Do you have something from your childhood that makes you smile?

Blessings, Aimee

Photos: me at about age 3 sitting on the rocker

yea! we find the rocker tucked away in the garage

the rocker comes home from the trip--soon to have a bit of restorative surgery to treat its 'fracture' (LOL) and a bit of a spa treatment too to make it as good as new :)

Did I say it is a musical rocker?
