Baker Bound

Great Grandmama

We picked up the girls on Christmas eve, and drove straight to Mama’s for family Christmas. We’ve celebrated on Christmas Eve, ever since I married Sweet Friend, in 1984. That way, our birth family celebration didn’t clash with in-law’s. And the system has worked great, thru all the different in-laws. The only fly in theContinue reading “Great Grandmama”

Harry Hawkins

Grandpa Harry is my Dad’s grandpa. My memories of him are kinda vague, since I think I was only about 8 when he died. (I’ll check on that when the aunts wake up, they get a little grumpy when I wake them up at 5 am, to ask dumb questions!!) Update: He died when IContinue reading “Harry Hawkins”

Lumbar Lesions, Later

Ok, remember when I fell Sept. 24, and the CAT scan showed the lesions on my spine? Then, I went to do the MRI, and the insurance hadn’t approved the contrast?

Formal Family

First I’ll write about being thankful for my nuclear family, and go on from there. I’m so thankful my parents were married! I had both parents in my home. What a blessing that is. (For the purposes of this post, I’m only gonna talk about the positive aspects of my Dad. And that they stayedContinue reading “Formal Family”

God’s Glory

The first person I need to thank is God!! Ephesians 1:3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: After all, without Him, I would not be here. (Neither would anything else.) Genesis 1:1King James Version 1 In the beginning God created the heaven andContinue reading “God’s Glory”
