Mamaw Mable

Morris Grandparents

Today is the 42 anniversary of the passing of my Mamaw Mable Morris. She was sweet and beautiful and worked very hard to take care of her family. She was a wife and a mother of 8. She would fix big pans of “pone bread” and “killed down” lettuce, both of which my daddy loved his whole life. She was a kind and loving grandmother and very gentle with me. I loved her very much. She was loved by everyone who knew her. Never to be forgotten ♥

This is a picture of my her and my Papaw Morris when they were very young.

Christmas 2014

Christmas 2014 is almost here! I can’t believe how time flies. Hoping for a nice quiet holiday with my family and friends. Got my tree up and getting the house ready for our new addition, Bettie Jean. She should be here this week, hopefully. I am so excited! We went to Madison, IN and picked up the frame. Thank you Billy, for all your help! I don’t know what I would do without you. Carmela and I took the U-Haul back and dropped it off. That thing was HUGE.. Don’t think I’ve ever driven anything like that and of course my bestie had to take a pic. Will post that later. Here is one of our tree. I think she turned out quite beautiful. Prettiest one we have had since Christmas 2011. We lost Devin in August of 2012 and I could barely make it through, much less decorate my home. Devin loved Christmas, so I try to feel him with me as I go through the next couple of weeks. As long as my kids are with me and my Billy, I will make it and it’s nice to know that now.

My heart breaks for all of the grieving parents who have lost a piece of themselves to death and are trying to find their way to live on. Wrap your arms around them all and their families, dear Lord and let them know you are near them all to love and care for them as they face the hardest journey of their lives. Amen

God Bless us all,

My Sewing Room

Here we go.. Looking forward to getting my new (to me) Fusion Longarm quilting machine.. Billy is working very hard to get my sewing room all freshly painted and looking good for her new home. Thinking I may name her Bettie Jean. In honor of my mom and my sweet aunt Bettie. We shall see if it sticks. 🙂

Really excited about starting some new chapters in my life. With my guardian angels by my side, I am moving forward and so looking forward to making progress with something I love to do so much. I have had lots of inspiration lately, coming from everywhere. Thank you Mrs. Harriet Carpanini for giving me first chance on your fantastic machine! Here is a pic of our first meeting. So exciting! I can’t wait to bring her home.
