Event Full

I think most of us have hopes and dreams tucked away in our hearts. For most of my years of being a grandmother, I have been a long distant one. If it wasn’t many miles there have been other circumstances. So, I have not been the doting grandma, able to hold and rock the baby in my arms or take them to the library as I used to observe other grandmother’s when I was working at a library. But with what opportunity I have had, I have made the most of it and held each experience dear to my heart.This weekend was eventful and I had 24 hours of full-time grandmothering and after the sweet girls left I found out that one of my daughter’s delivered her first child. I thank the Lord! Mr.G  got discharged from the hospital on Saturday and has a brand new shoulder replacement and so lots of excitement. My cup is full and overflowing…

Texture Tuesday: Free and Easy

I did not have the understanding about this piano until I spoke to the young man playing and singing. Please read here about the pianos that were dispersed throughout the City of Corvallis for a Music Festival. As I observed this young father, he was very relaxed as he played.

The theme for  Texture Tuesday  is Free and Easy. For many of us summer days are fleeting and soon children will be starting school. Vacation time is over and its  time to get back to reading, writing and arithmetic.
