Miscellany Monday

it's monday again and that always means it's time to link up with carissa for some meme fun.  what a super gal she is and i so appreciate her taking the time to host us each monday.

<1> my dear mom has been deceased 20 months. there's never a day that goes by that i do not miss her. thank goodness it's not a miss that necessarily makes me sad anymore, but there's so much i miss about her. one major thing is her prayers for me. i knew all of my life that there was not a day that my mom did not pray  for me. as i grew older her prayers began to mean more and more to me. i knew that i could call and share the concerns of my heart and she would be in earnest prayer with me. there's just no one like a momma and there's no prayers like those of a momma.
<2> last week i mentioned my precious Vietnamese friends that own the salon where i get my nails done. Their 14 year old daughter is such a talented young lady. She

Ami and her daughter An

 plays the piano, sings and dances and is a superb artist.  in the past few weeks she started painting art work on jeans. below is a pair she painted this week.  i was more than a little impressed. it seems that she is in demand among her friends. an is such a sweet girl and is president of the

 fellowship of christian athletes at her high school. she is excited that their family will be adding another member  in feb. what a wonderful big sister an will be.

<3> is it just me, or does blogger misbehave for you too sometimes? and, do you use internet explorer or mozilla as your browser? i am a big mozilla fan but my daughter says that blogger works best in internet explorer. any thoughts would be appreciated. it seems that i can have "issues" with either one some times.

<4> our little town is so blessed to have a wonderful little theater, called "the rose" and plays are performed by local folks 5-6 times a year.  yesterday afternoon i went to see the current play, "the dixie swim club." oh, my goodness, 
it was hysterical almost from the beginning to the end. i love to laugh and i wish that i could tell you i have a dainty laugh, but such is not the case. i laugh with gusto (I cry with gusto too). ~smile~  If you are ever given the chance to see the play, i feel certain you will enjoy it.

<5> the "two delights" of my life will be coming in a few minutes. they will be spending the morning with their cici while their mommies attend a meeting concerning their upcoming school year. my little princess just started crawling this past week and my little prince is usually in a full trot. so it will be a busy and fun morning of making memories.

may your socks be blessed off this week!!

    Your words about your mother are beautiful. I am sorry that you miss her.

    Have a wonderful Monday.

  3. Hope you enjoyed your grandbabies today. How fun! I think those jeans are so cute. She did wonderful! Thanks for sharing your randomness.


  4. I am so sorry your mom is not here to put up those prayers for you. There really is nothing better than a momma's prayers.

    I never have much trouble with Blogger. Every now and then it won't let me in, but other than that it works fine. I am using Fire Fox.

    Have fun with the little prince and princess!

  5. Wow! She is talented and that's cool!! I'm an artist too.

    I participated in Miscellany Monday too if you want to come visit us. :)

  6. I use Mozilla & I don't have too many issues with blogger. It has been a long time since we've used Internet Explorer.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
