About Me

My photo
Deep South, United States
First I am a mother of two sons, Chad 35 and Ryan 32. Through these beautiful sons, I have been blessed with two beautiful daughter-in-laws, Kelli and Erin. As a result of these beautiful wives comes three beautiful grands, Connor first and the only one for fives years. Then, Kelli and Chad blessed me with another beautiful grandson, Cooper, who is now three. Ryan and Erin blessed me with my first granddaughter, Presley, and now Presley has brother, Harper, who is 2. My blog is really all about family. The reason I chose Magnolia Memories as my blog title is I am from Mississippi! I love Magnolia's. Memories is something that I make everyday. I still have my mother who will be 89 on her birthday in April. My life is centered around my beautiful family. Life is GOOD!

“I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don't want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines and sing out loud in the car with the windows open and wear pink shoes and stay up all night laughing and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets and throw parties and eat ripe tomatoes and read books so good they make me jump up and down, and I want my everyday to make God belly laugh, glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift.”

Holding A Grudge

"Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive. When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden. Forgiveness doesn't mean what happened was OK, and it doesn't mean that person should still be welcome in your life. It just means you have made peace with the pain, and are ready to let it go."

Where do you go when you become totally lost???? I have always been a religious person. But today I am just really not sure of who or what I am..For the last six months I have been upside down..It has just been one horrible thing after the other. Lost job, unable to collect unemployment from the company which I went to work for..This I knew but the lady that run the non-profit organization cut my hours..I had been let go at the radio station in July 2009. I received my unemployment from the station. Because I chose not to take the hours that she was going to give me which was not full-time hours I just quit.She was able to block me from drawing the money that I had left over from the radio station..Yes, so now I have nothing coming in..Christmas was the hardest with my GRANDS..A great friend allowed me to work in her shop for gifts. Thank you Jeanne..A deer ran into the side of my car Halloween night..I had to use the check to pay rent and utilities bills.My car will never be fixed.Does anyone know of anywhere that I can get assistance with my rent..I am getting food stamps..God I truly believe knew just the right time for the deer to come to my path..I am just sooooo sure that GOD has truly given up on me..Please leave me some scriptures or a note..Needing help!! Are you someone that can help me..Put me in the right direction for help.....
