I am pinning a little rose on every one of my grand babies clothing,
so they will have a memory of their Poppa.
You are welcome to take this photo for your encouragement on
your blog if you wish.
Just wanted to check in with everyone. Thank you for all the sweet comments. Today we will have the viewing and tomorrow we will bury Poppa. Shannon my sis is here and we have been enjoying one another's company. We are sleeping in the same bed at night and talking the night away. She snores, I don't. She says I do, but I can't imagine that I would do such a thing. She was totally humming this morning in her snoring. I wish I would have had a tape recorder. I know the good Lord has been giving us times of great laughter. The days are getting easier, just because I know that Poppa is breathing the best air ever. Isn't that so wonderful? One of his pastors told me that yesterday. Makes life tolerable to think more of Poppa then me.
One more thing, when I get all nerved up, I get fever blisters. Now that is just not cool in my book and it would be okay if I could just stay home. Well, I will only have to see a few hundred people........ personally.......... face to face............. sad for me. My Tressy said, "They will understand." I know that's true, but it doesn't make me feel any better. My sister said that she has some psychedelic bandaids. She is not funny either. If any of you have had a fever blister you know that every day it grows. Oh man, I am just not happy about this. So again I ask for prayer. I have been begging God. I am an old women, so maybe He will answer. Maybe if a whole bunch of us will ask????? Thank you sweet ladies.
I have one more fun thing to add. I was in my Dad's closet well not in it looking through it for a suit. I saw this big red sweat shirt. It said, Red Socks (I thought). Well, it was kind of in funny style letters. One of my darling daughters said, "Momma why are you wearing that thing?" I said, "Well Poppa liked the Red Socks and it is warm. Then both the girls laughed and said, "It doesn't say Red Socks it says Hip Hop!" So I have a problem reading. Honestly it looked like the words Red Socks. We giggled and laughed so hard. The other thing was Poppa liked the Dodgers. I didn't know that. I think I am going to get new glasses. Also, I am still going to wear his sweatshirt. It is to my knees, but it is warm. Plus it will remind me of someone very special in my life.
The guineas just made a whole bunch of noise out the window. My sister said,"what is that? We told her that it was the guineas making noise, she said that she thought it was a ring tone. Tressa said, "That is when you know your from the city."
