Sharing the Joy!

My sister-in-law sent me this link made me smile. I think you'll like it! The story is that a 90 year old couple walked into the lobby of the Mayo Clinic and while waiting they spotted a piano. They've been married for 62 years and he'll be 90 this year. They definately still know how to have fun and share their joy.

Happy Father's Day

Time for a quick post of two of my favorite pics from today. It was a great day. My mom and dad came for church/lunch. Tom and Jen and Olivia came for lunch as well. We missed Melissa and Jason, but got to have dinner with them in Indiana Friday night (a fun, unexpected surprise)! My sweet hubby wanted me to take a few shots of him and Olivia in the yard as things are blooming well at the moment and the rain has finally taken a break. These two are my favorites...

Gotta go make some supper for my sweet hubby--the best husband/father around!

Wait for the Lord

I am still hanging in there with the Scripture Memorization Challenge on the LPM blog...not just hanging in there, but really enjoying it. We are up to verse 12 for the year, not bad for an old grammy who doesn't remember much of anything these days :0)

My verse for this next two weeks is Psalm 27:13-14 "I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord. Be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord." (NIV)

For quite some time I have had a huge, heavy circumstance that concerns me daily. I have been waiting and waiting to see God's answer, often times not too patiently. I like being reminded of the fact that I will see His goodness if I am strong and wait for Him.

Grammy's Having Blog Issues!

Something crazy happened to my blog layout overnight and I have been trying off and on all day to get it back to some kind of normal. This DEFINATELY is not my strong suit. Right now at least I think it is readible...we'll see what happens tomorrow. I added the cute pic of Olivia because this post would be completely boring without it. I like the way she is looking at me...makes me wonder what is going through her mind. Not sure I really want to know :o)

Outside Fun

Starting next week, our Mondays and Fridays are going to be much more quiet and kind of lonely. Olivia's mommy is about to begin summer break. Great for Mommy and Olivia, just a little sad for Grammy and Papa. We started the morning with one of Olivia and Papa's favorite things, pancakes at IHOP! Then who could stay inside on this perfect, BEAUTIFUL spring day? Olivia and I played outside the whole time she was here (except for a much needed nap--hers, not mine:0) She loves playing in the little rose bed fountain, and it's not a bad way to wash off the sand and the bubbles:0)

Taking a little break...playing makes you so tired!

Time for more bubbles...

Olivia kept looking at her Papa today and saying Gampa, Gampa, Gampa with a stinkery little smile...those two are quite a pair.
