Good Morning & celebrating Mamaw

You want to know what I did on this glorious morning??? I woke up rested at 8:15!! Both of the girls slept through the night & slept in. Yea for mommy & daddy! I was off Thursday, Bella was up at 5:45! Thursday night, Bella woke up at 12:30am with a raging fever & finally went back to sleep an hour later, I was up at 4:45 to go to work yesterday.  Thankfully her fever was gone by morning and she was better, like it all was just a bad dream.  So I NEEDED the good solid rest. Thank you Jesus for it!

We spent Thursday evening at our local museum celebrating my Mamaw. She is an 84 year old who acts 30 years younger. She's been an artist her whole life. She runs the kitchen at her church-cooking weekly for the congregation, participates with the Brown Bag Programs at the library, helps plan the museum exhibits and regularly paints with the handicap at the ARC, creating artists! She's a busy lady. She makes no money doing any of it, she does it because she loves doing each of them. So to honor her, the museum had a reception. There was good food, a jazz band and her painting & pictures covering a room. It was fun to celebrate her and put a spotlight on how wonderful she is & how much she gives to our community. My Mamaw is so fun & witty. I hope to spend my senior years just like her.
We had a huge photo board there.  It was fun to look over all of those wonderful memories:

My favorite picture of Mamaw, this was after she had one of her boys.  I love the sweet ribbon in her hair.

Mamaw had created these photo books.  I love hearing her stories.
