With a Heart of Gold

Posted 10-19-2010 at 10:16 AM by rodmonster

My wifes Grandmother (our Maw Maw) has her 90th birthday coming up and we were asked to write something about her for her Birthday book they are putting together.
I wrote this from the grandchildren’s perspective. Even though I have only know her for 18 years of my life….i know how she has been with the rest of the grandchildren for all of their lives……


With a Heart of Gold
By V. Rodney Harrison Jr. – 11-19-2010

The special role of a Grandmother is one that never ends,
Both, great strength and loving patience are required.
A mentor, with enduring understanding and dedication,
Heartfelt care and brilliant kindness are too desired.

A Grandmother is woman who throughout her accomplished life,
Has at one time or another – seen and done it all.
Yet can still be with you for your new adventures and journeys,
And help guide you no matter the experience you befall.

Yet there is lagniappe...

Xmas365 & Sons Light & Design

Posted 10-18-2010 at 09:20 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have been thinking about doing something with my professional life for a while now and I keep coming back to one thing I have been thinking about for a number of years now. Unfortunately it would be a seasonal type of job, only from maybe October - January. I would like to do outside design and decorating for the holiday season starting with Halloween right through Christmas then do the taking down of the decorations in January. I read about it in the newspaper, I believe 5-6 years ago and I have thought about it ever since. The job I have now would not be conducive to that schedule and hence why it is just a thought at the moment. I would probably have to have some training in electric work and that would probably take a few years , but I always look forward to doing my own lights and decorating outside, I nearly take a month to do my own, between inside and out. I don't mind working in the cold considering I work in a freezer where it is -20* F to 0*F many days, I spend hours in there....

Christmas in October

Years ago when I would walk to work I passed the front window of a department store. Most of the time I'd admire the window but around Thanksgiving I found myself dreading it. Each year I would brace myself for the sign I would see that would really set me off. The window would be covered in brown paper and a single sign would simply read "Unlike our competitors we like to celebrate our holidays one at a time and we refuse to show our new Christmas window until it is actually Christmas".

I never understood that.

I get that people don't like seeing Christmas coming too early. I understand if folks become impatient with stores packed with holiday merchandise displayed with fertilizer and flip-flops. But do we have to be snotty about it?

After all, it is Christmas. What is really wrong with songs on the radio that send a message of hope? Is seeing a Christmas tree during Indian summer really a burden? When Christmas comes around I hear people every...

Miracle

Posted 10-15-2010 at 08:36 PM by caninemom3

I am quite weepy this evening which is not new for me. I got some very, very good news today. We have been trying to get a furnace loan for the past year off and on and have been turned down every time because of several reasons, one of them being a bankruptcy which we had to declare back in 2005.

Our furnace is oil and is 57 years old and has been dying a slow and creaky death (rather like myself as I am just 1 year younger than it) for a long time. It went out last Winter in January, February, March, etc. Each time my husband managed to be able to get it going but we both knew it was not going to last another Winter so we decided to try once more to get a loan.

I got the news today that I qualified for a loan to purchase a new furnace !! It is a true miracle in my eyes. Facing a Winter here in Ohio without a furnace could be quite brutal and I just did not know what we were going to do.

I am still a little cautious but the closing of the loan...
