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!

Friday night my son and his wife invited
me over to eat with them. Little did I
know it was going to end the way it did.
It was about 9:30,it was lightening and
thundering so I felt like I needed to
head toward home.Then my son said that
Erin was scheduled for an ultra sound
on April 8th.I knew Erin had been sick
several months ago,she had a scope so
not thinking I said well why did it take
them so long to tell her that she needed
a ultra sound, still not thinking Ryan
said mom it has nothing to do with Erin
having her scope.I said then why is she
having a ultra sound. Then it hid me
that I was going to be a grandmother
I am so excited for the both of them.

On Saturday they sold their house after
many months on the market and they will
be moving to Jackson Mississippi about
90 miles from me.Ryan works for the
railroad and Erin is a Pharmaceutical Rep.
based out of Jackson. They have both been
commuting back and forth for sometime now..
Connor and Cooper will now have to share
mamaw.Just had to share my wonderful
news..I know this is going to be a little

Please keep Ryan and Erin in your prayers.

O how WONDERFUL! Praise the Lord for the bundle of joy that's on the way. I pray a healthy happy pregnancy and birth for Momma and I pray for them both as they relocate and adjust themselves. All will be well and I'm so excited for you and your family.

Bless you.
