To All You Beautiful People
It is nearly over, this tragic year
So filled with worry and loss and fear
And horror and shock and pain and grief
And reading headlines beyond belief.
But through the darkness, every day
There was a light that came our way.
For some it came as a call from a firend,
Or the song of a bird or the giggle of a kid,
Or a cuddle with a dog--but shine it did.
This light shone on Cajun and Liz and Ruby and Jean
Whether that light was felt or seen.
It shone on Mousie and Marley and Shuaw and Gaye
It shone on all of us, every day.
It shone on Snarky and Jane and Missy and Beat.
Whether through a joke, or hug, or flower or song,
Every day that light shone on.
It lightened the hearts of Country and Tribe and Covcas and Race
And Hopeful, Florida Night Shift and Maggie and Same
And other folks I have forgotten to name.
No matter the darkness that is all about,
This is a light that will not go out.
We need to hold on, and hold on tight
To that beautiful and wonderful
And glorious
LIGHT.

8 feet? Are you sure it wasn't a tornado?
We have a storm advisory until tonight. So far only about a inch of snow but very windy.

Did I tell you Noah got a job at the restaurant Zach works at part time. They have valet parking and needed someone to stand outside a ask cars if they wanted valet service and if not where parking was available. Last week a lady called the police on him and told them a "little thug" was going up to cars in the parking lot". Two police cars showed up. Now the manager of the restaurant calls Noah " our little thug"

Today I'm doing my annual Christmas baking. A couple of batches of cookies and some fudge then I'm done with baking for another year! LOL

Liz--we just got a light dusting of snow that was gone by 8AM. There must have been a lot of wind that night because some heavy wooden chairs were moved about 8 feet.
Y'all please wish me luck. I haven't been to theapy since a week ago Wednesday because I haven't been able to drive. I am going to try my best to get there this morning, then go for a haircut.

Did you make it to theapy? Is that anything like therapy? At least that's what we call it in the South.

Haircut?

How are you feeling?

No, Honey--theapy is so much better than therapy. In therapy, they made me work. In theapy, I just lay there like a rag doll.
I called the beauty operator to tell her I was on my way and ask her to come out and help me with the steps. She didn't answer, so I left a message. Of course, she didn't get the message. I made it up the curb and the steps (I had really been worried about them). She helped me down the steps and off the curb. You talk about something that makes a person feel feeble as hell, that will do it.
My leg is swollen from above my knee, down and including my foot. In therpy (better even than theapy) they said it was fluid from the inflamation in my knee. I have Always had strong, healthy knees.
Do you have to do Wally today? If so,God be with you!

The woman who called is probably one on those detestable people who think anyone under thirty is a little thug.
"Our little thug"----I love it!

Have y'all heard of Tommy Copper compression gloves? I had never heard of them, but son and DIL got me a pair for an early Christmas gift. They can be worn night and day and are machine washable. Don't know yet whether they are helping.

Murph you are so sweet. Love you to death.
I was just thinking about so many of you
that I would love to meet.
And guess what one day we will..
Some people fear death but myself as I get older
I keep thinking what a wonderful day that will
be.
You have been such a friend during the past years
and I look for your post every time I get on this
puter.
I wish you and your family the very best.

I never heard of them but I'm jealous over those fancy rubber gloves your Ya Ya's gave you.

Thank you so much Murph, you have a beautiful soul that has been my light many times. Thanks for all the times you remind us of how lucky we all are. God bless all you ladies.

Ha! Ha! For awhile, some years ago,...I drove a red trans am. I was taking my 13 year old son to a friends house out near the college. We had the radio turned up and singing TNT I'm dynomite! Lock up your daughters, lock up your wives....We were snorking and thinking it hilarious when an AVID cop pulled me over, even tho I had done nothing wrong.! You should have seen the shocked look on his face when he saw ME driving. I think he thought he had himself a couple of long haired hippie types! All he could stutter out was " ah, turn the radio down Miz?" please?"

In later years, when my son was married...guess what ONE of his tribute songs was to his dear mother?.....HER tribute song to HER Mothra was, "I hope you dance." Notice I said one.

I'm plodding along tonight...wrapping presents,...wondering if I've done enough.

Remembering the things the grands have said.

Miss Lindsay when seeing the stitches on my upper back, began to tell me in a very animated way, that her name is adshully Dr, Iindsay Wella, black stitches are no good,....she would give me blue stitches to get better quick.

Little Monty and I shared a dinner at McDonalds where he told me, Don't eat here often Gwamma, you need vegetables too.

I had company the livelong day It was absolutely wonderful,but really wore me out.

After I had gone to bed (Early) Nevaeh came, bringing a Christmas gift bag for the dogs. There are several squeaky toys and a rope-pull toy, and several balls. One is like tennis ball, only harder. She was calling it the tennis shoe ball. Murphy immediately claimed the rope-pull toy as hers. Marley acted a little timid about it all.(And Timid isn't Any part of that dog).

I told daughter, "Look at those dogs sniffing her jacket pockets, seeing if she has any g-u-m." Nevaeh said, "I don't have any g-u-m."

SHe gave me the sweetest hug and said, "I will see you on Christmas, Big Mama."
I told her, "I look forward to it, Nevaeh."
She said, "I look forward to it, Big Mama."

I once walked into a store with 3 teenage grands. The manager gave us a dirty look and said, "What are you kids looking for?"
I said, "Excuse me?"
He said, "Oh.... Good morning maam. Is there anything I could help you with?" Jerk!!!!
