Family will be arriving to the farm!!!!!!

Hello sweet ladies,

The house is almost ready.........the son's and their families will be arriving at our farm early this evening........the same farm that the boys would come to when Grandma and Grandpa were alive. My mother in love would stay up most of the night getting everything prepared.  What a treasure of memories I have stored in my thoughts today.  I remember how excited I would feel when my sweet man and I would drive the 5 miles from our farm with our chattering boys in the back seats to the farm we live at now. The butterflies were going off in my tummy as well.  I wonder if our children and their children feel the same. They know that when we all sit down before opening presents, Poppa will read the CHRISTmas story first. Oh how I wish Grandma Jo and Grandpa Jack could be here. How life we are the Grandma and Grandpa. I love being the Grammie, but I so wish we could have it the other way too. Smile! It is kind of a helpless feeling when your parents are gone. My Momma is still here, but with Alzheimer's it changes things. Hard!

I hope that your day will be filled with making memories........they never leave you do they. It is a gift I think from the Father.......some for those of you are alone.....all you have is memories......know that I am praying for you......for those who are going through very tough times.......I have you before the Father also. Whatever situation you are in God is not far...just speak to Him......tell Him your everythings...and don't believe that He isn't.......truth is that He does!!!!!!!! 

I must go to finish up those final touches that still need to be done. If you need someone me (top right hand side on sidebar). I can pray for you....I don't want you to be alone. Honest! Please write! 

Speaking of of our Tea Party Across the Miles ladies was in a wreck this last Monday. She has a broken wrist,  hurt shoulder and neck. It must hurt bad. Please pray for Sherry. I am thankful we all are a part of a family of sorts......precious! Thank you! 

Merry CHRISTmas from our farm,



  1. HI Linda,

    So cool to have all your family around you. That's wonderful :) :)

    I'll keep Sherry in my prayers, for sure.

    Happy CHRISTmas to you and your family. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  2. I know you and your family will have a wonderful CHRISTmas - God bless you!

  3. Linda,

    I love your tree :) The red gingham bows are so cute.
    I love how we store memories in our hearts and bring them back to mind to remember them in our hearts when we want to do so. It is fun to help our children to do the same.
    I hope you and your sweet family have a wonderful Christmas get-together :D

    Merry Christmas!

    Love you,

  5. Linda I just know your home will be filled with love and warmth! I always love the memories we are blessed with!

  6. Merry CHRISTmas to you Linda and all your family. Hope it is very special. I would like to ask for prayer for my niece, her new baby boy, and her husband. Baby was delivered Tuesday with a known heart defect. He underwent open heart surgery on Thursday and is still in ICU. He is progressing well so far. I know our Lord can heal his little body. Thanks so much...I know you have a wonderful heart. I just love reading your blog. You always are so uplifting. Again...Merry CHRISTmas.
