About Me

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!

But As She Passed By:

A Real Friend

A real friend is one who will continue to talk
to you over the back fence even though
she's missing her favorite television program.

A Friend Of Mine

A friend of mine dropped by, dear God
For just a friendly chat
We sipped a cup of coffee
And we talked of this and that
Our visit was not planned at all
But as she passed my way
My friend just stopped to say hello
And pass the time of day.

You know how much I'm grateful God
For kind and thoughtful friends
It's folks like these that bring my life
Its richest dividends
Because they bring a friendly word
They share a smile or two
And skies that had a tinge of gray
Become a brighter blue.

The bricks of friendship are made of laughter...
But the mortar is made of tears
