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.


Good Sunday morning.I thought a little
humour for today may give us a little
something to smile about. We are on to
a new week and a new month. It is really
hard to believe that April is already on
us. One thing for sure we have had plenty
of showers.We are getting more rain next
week.SO if the old saying is correct April
Showers bring May flowers we should all
have beautiful flowers.
Have A Great Day!!
God Loves you..

A middle aged woman has a heart attack and is taken to the hospital. While on the operating table she has a near-death experience. During that experience she sees God and asks if this is it. God says no and explains that she has another 30-40 years to live.

Upon her recovery she decides to just stay in the hospital and have a face lift, liposuction, breast augmentation, and a tummy tuck. She even has someone come in and change her hair colour. She figures that since she's got another 30 or 40 years she might as well make the most of it.

She walks out the hospital after the last operation and is killed by an ambulance speeding up to the hospital.

She arrives in front of God again and asks, "I thought you said I had another 30-40 years?"

God replies, "Sorry, I didn't recognize you."


A preacher retired and moved to the country to enjoy life and practice his hobby of yard work. Needing a lawn mower, he headed into town to buy one. On the way he saw a sign advertising a lawn mower for sale. He stopped at the house and a young lad came out to greet him.

The preacher asked about the lawn mower and the kid said it was behind the house. The two went to look at the lawn mower. The engine was sputtering along at idle speed. The preacher increased the speed of the engine and mowed a few strips. Satisfied that the mower would do the job they settled on a price of $25.00.

Later in the day, the young lad was riding his bicycle when he spied the preacher pulling on the engine starter rope. The kid stopped and watched for a couple of minutes. He asked, "What's wrong?"

The reply came, "I can't get this mower started. Do you know how?"

The kid said, "Yep."

"Well, how do you do it? Tell me!", the preacher yelled.

The kid replied, "You have to cuss it."

The preacher rose up indignantly. "Now you listen here. I am a preacher and if I ever did cuss, not saying I have, I've forgotten how to do it after all these years."

With a wise look on his face well beyond his years, the kid said, "Preacher, you keep on pulling that rope and it'll all come back to ya."
