Don't put off your happy life......


Thanking God for this season
in my life!! Learning to enjoy
EVERY breath!!! 

(note: Several pictures on this blog were taken by Tommy Young.
He lives in Summit, MS and is a wonderful photographer. 
He can be found on Facebook.)


Our trip to New York.... 
My sis, me and my baby girl!

After our wonderful trip to New York, I 
had to take about 4 days just to recoup.  
What a wonderful trip and what priceless
memories!! Of course, I'd not want to live 
there....way too fast paced for this southern
girl.  Example: As we were walking the streets
of New York, a man dropped his umbrella on the
sidewalk.  I said, "Sir, sir! You dropped this...sir!"
NO RESPONSE...he just kept walking at a VERY
fast trot.  Another couple saw me TRYING to 
catch the man and get his attention.  They said,
"Mam, he has earplugs in, he can't hear you." 
So the man took the umbrella from my sister, 
because it was obvious my RA slow traveling
self was NOT going to catch up with the DUDE.
He proceeded to run and catch the guy.  IN
MISSISSIPPI, you'd hear a "bless your heart, 
thank you so much for picking it up for me."
BUT NOT IN NEW YORK....not a step was 
missed ...it was like watching a hand off 
in a track race.  
I like my southern roots!! JUST FINE!!
 BUT TRULY....we enjoyed every
moment.  We took it slow...as my sweet
daughter seems to have switched roles with
her mama now....  I told her, "If ever I 
questioned your love for me... I DO NOT
NOW!"  She was so nurturing and so over-
protective, making sure I was not overdoing it
and causing more harm to my joints.
 OH HOW I DO LOVE MY BABY GIRL!!
Our first day, after the plane ride and 
getting our luggage and a ride to the Hyatt
..... totally POOPED!
