Humor is the Spice of life.....

Wouldn't it be great, if  like other spices, we each had a "Humor" spice bottle in our pantry?  

Dash a little here and a little there to flavor each day with as much humor as you prefer to enjoy.

My humor bottle was opened yesterday.  Mylee and I went into to town, to visit my dad at the nursing home.....and to run some other errands.  We had many laughs while visiting dad!!  Not only from him, but from several of the other residents as well.   

My name was Jessie....!!  Dad kept calling me Jessie throughout our visit.   There was another resident that danced the entire time we were there.  It was great to see the big smile on his face as he danced around the big living area. guy who loves caps, was wearing 4 different caps on his head.  They were all stacked up on top of each other!!

After leaving the nursing home, Mylee and I stopped in at "Ulta" to pick up a few items.   When we finished our shopping, we came out to get in the car.   I pushed the unlock button on my keys and I noticed the sound was a little faint sounding.  

I tried to open the door....but it remained locked.  This happened a few more times, as Mylee and I both were desperately trying to get in the car.   I had just about decided that I was going to have to call Sam to come help us, when Mylee asked the question...."Sugar, is this your car?"

I looked in the window to find a "Yeti" cup in the cupholder with the initials......fCl        What? WHAT?.....this wasn't even my car!!!!!   You have got to be kidding me?!   It looked exactly like my car!!  But listen to this.   I have personalized license plates that say "Shug6"

I never looked at the license plates.....why would I need to?
This car looked like my car!   Oh my...Mylee and I laughed for quite a while.   She said: "Sugar...I have to tell my mom about this!"   Sure....just another thing to convince my daughters that I'm getting older!!!!

Anyways ~ humor is great for our souls.

Is this really happening?

It is truly a gorgeous day here in East Texas!!  

"A disciplined life encourages a courageous life"

Don't you just love our gorgeous American Flag!  Each day as I drive to the Nursing Home to see my dad, one of the roads leads me straight in front of a beautiful, HUGE, American Flag.

To see it flying high and swaying in the such a beautiful sight.  I always thank God for our FREEDOM!

Well....all of my friends that live here in our area, already know that our oldest grandson (Tyler) was sworn in to the Air Force this past week.  However...many of my blogging friends may not be aware of this.

I really don't consider myself as an ordinary grandmother....NO...I  
have developed a unique, one of a kind, relationship with each of my grandchildren.  I have a bond with   each grandson and granddaughter that is a loveliness far beyond rare!

I have written a journal for each grandchild and on the lines, I have written so well...the joys and the Blessings of their life growing up.

Not only are there great things written in these journals...but I have also included their hardships, their sick days, and the times when they simply gave me something that I wanted to remember as best I could.   

I think you all probably get my point here.....I LOVE MY GRANDCHILDREN!!  We as a family are so Blessed.  We all live within 5 miles of each other, and most days, I have at least three or four of the grands....stopping by "Shug's and Pops" for a snack or meal and to give Sam and I a big ol' hug!!!!   

For all these is very hard for me to even think 
of Tyler being in the Air Force.  My heart has an unstoppable pounding when I think of the places he may have to go.  

Tyler is a good Christian young man and I know that God will remain in his matter how hard or difficult the situation may be. 

Tomorrow....Tyler will be traveling to Dallas to take a very    difficult Agility and Stamina test.  This is for a particular field that he is choosing to go in to while in the AF.   Please pray for Tyler!  He has been somewhat nervous about taking the test.... 

I am praying God's Will.

I find it amazing how blogging can simply take a big load off of my heavy thoughts and send them right out the window!!

Hugs Y'all
