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!

A PINK HEART

WELCOME BACK TO PINK SATURDAY. THIS
HAS BEEN A FAST WEEK. ONCE AGAIN I
HAVE POSTED ABOUT SOMETHING THAT IS
VERY DEEPLY TO ME. FRIENDS HOW SOME
PEOPLE DON'T CHERISH FRIENDSHIPS
ENOUGH. LIKE THE POST SAYS SOMETIMES
WE JUST LET THE BALLOONS GO.MAYBE WE
DON'T REALIZE THE EFFECTS OF THE BALLOON
GOING UP UNTIL IT IS OUT OF SITE AND WE
NO LONGER CAN SEE IT.I ALWAYS WONDER WHERE
DID THAT BALLOON END UP.
PINK SATURDAY IS HOSTED BY BEVERLY OVER
AT HOW SWEET THE SOUND. PLEASE TAKE TIME TO
VISIT HER BLOG AS WELL.
I HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL PINK SATURDAY
AND MEET LOTS,LOTS OF NEW FRIENDS.

EACH PICTURE REPRESENTS A PART OF A PINK
HEART.I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO GET THE PICTURES
IN BETWEEN THE WRITING. OH WELL ENJOY,
THE PICTURES ARE VERY SWEET.








Give this heart to everyone you don't want to lose in '09 . Try to collect 12, it's not easy!



'Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.'

A sharp tongue can cut your own throat.





If you want your dreams to come true, you mustn't oversleep.


Of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.


The best vitamin for making friends..... B1.


The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.


The heaviest thing you can carry is a grudge.


One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.


You lie the loudest when you lie to yourself
If you lack the courage to start, you have already finished.
One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.
Ideas won't work unless ' You' do..


Your mind is like a parachute...it functions only when open..


The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.


The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late to become what you might have been.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right.. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen so I'm gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you.

Send this to all your friends and see how many you get back. Even send it to your balloons that you think have flown away forever.You may be surprised to see it return. Send this heart to everybody you love and like and that have touched your life in a positive way..

Love the post - the quotes, the pictures. What an adorable baby.

RE getting pix where you want them to go - pix always load up at the top of the blog, so what I do is my typing first, then load up the pix and then cut&paste the pictures where I want them to go. Then check in Preview (which isn't very accurate, to be honest). Then I publish the post, view the blog in a separate page and go back, edit if I need to move the text up or down, publish again etc etc. There may be a faster way, but at least this gets me there. It's my only complaint with Blogger: getting the pictures to go where you want them to.

Good luck and Happy Pink Saturday to you!
