missing grandma

Lately I've been missing Grandma. I was walking in town down a street with pretty houses and there was a cute little blue house that I knew she would love because well, it's blue. It just looked like her. And I had this sudden compulsion to go and knock on the door and get a wonderful snugly hug from my grandma and have her ask all about how I'm doing. Can't wait til I get to heaven and can get one of those hugs.

Grandma and the babies

We were talking the other day about the baby that went to heaven last week. My grandma always loved to hear when mom had a lady in labor so she could pray for her and the baby. She loved seeing babies and holding them, singing to them along with a small lecture to the mommy's on how to take care of themselves. She worried about that as she had some horrible birth experiences.

We were thinking of Grandma in heaven sitting in the heavenly nursery and singing Beautiful to all the babies up in heaven and what a wonderful thought that was. She is praising Jesus and taking care those babies that she is strong enough to hold up there!

We are so much like you...

Even if we do not want to be! I was sitting and thinking about this last night, how the things that drove us all crazy are going to be the same things we will be doing to our children and grandchildren!

We learned from you how to be stubborn and brave. I hope that we can take these traits and make them into positive ones as we grow old!

Little Peanut

I don't know if anyone looks at this blog anymore, but I check it about once a week. Grandma has been on my mind and heart so much lately. I think it's partially because I just had a baby and she loved babies so much that I know she would be holding him and helping as much as she could. She always called them her little peanuts. I never really thought I would remember something like that, but recently I started calling Gideon my little peanut and the memories came flooding back. Now it's such a special nickname to someday explain to him that Grandma Mary would have called him if he had the blessing of her in his life. It still makes me cry, but I will always sing "Beautiful" to him and him and Dayton will always know who Grandma Mary was and how special she will always be! She will always be a part of me and will always be apart of "my little peanuts" lives through stories, nicknames, and just the beautiful legacy she's left behind.
I love you so much, no way have you been forgotten, your memory lives on in our hearts!
