A World

A Poem from my daughter... She drew us on the bottom of the picture... Now my treasure A World
Here, were a mother and a daughter nothing less
A mother and child in a world,
A world that could barely be,
Bothered with mothers and children

My sweet baby girl was older than her age, I use to call her my old soul...

A mother is not a person to lean on  but a person to make leaning unnecessary By Dorothy Fisher
Here is my sweet baby boy as a child at one of his school Christmas party's. This poem fits my son very well...  I am so proud of him and what he is accomplishing in his life
He is very self sufficient knows how to care for others in his sphere, he lives and loves with special respect and honor to all in his life and still loves his mommy lol My sweet baby boy

I found this article in granny's papers, I never met Jerry Jilck because my grandmother didn't stay with him very long. My grandmother was married to three men. 1. Roy Apedaile, 1. Jerry Jilck and 3. Robert Acree of whom she became a widow from when he passed. Granny outlived all of them and spent many years single afterwards saying that she would never get married again and she didn't. It's pretty cool to see her in the newspaper. She and Jerry were married in April 1944 my mother was about two years old then.

This Sunday I want to share a letter written to me by my grandmother... It is nothing remarkable and is rather mundane to outsiders but to me now a treasure. My grandmother corresponded to all the people in her life that she loved. She would write several times a week to family and friends and you could always count upon hearing from her consistently. That was something I loved about her, her constant affection to her family


Date January ? ( I added the year as she could not remember it) 2006 Dear Eva, I can't write very good, my hand shakes so bad. But I will write a few lines to you. I miss visiting with you. (She lives with my mother in Nevada and I in California) I hear about you from your mother when you call ( I can no longer speak to her on the phone as she cannot hear well) I guess things are going all right with your family. I started this letter several days ago and put it away while we went to town, I finally am at it again. Irene and Mike and family came over to visit …

As I got a little closer the door came open wide and when I came to myself I was standing inside. I saw a host of angels.  They were standing everywhere one handed me a basket and said, “My child shop with care.” Everything a Christian needed was in that grocery store and all you couldn't carry you could come back the next day for more. First, I got some patience, Love was in the same row. Further down was understanding. You need that everywhere you go. I got a box or two of wisdom, a bag or two of faith. I just couldn't miss the Holy Ghost, for it was all over the place.  I stopped to get some strength and courage to help me run this race. By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed some grace. I didn't forget salvation for salvation was free, so I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me.  Then I st…
