This is a picture of some of my family.
In the center is my Grandmother, Grandma Lee. She is my mother’s mom. She is surrounded by her Grandchildren.
I blogged about her early last year. I went down to spend time with her.
She was doing fine when I went down to see her last year but this pass Thanksgiving she was in a wheelchair and not staying in her home. She is in a nursing home.
My mother passed away a few years ago. I got close to my grandmother. I, along with my siblings are doing all we can do to try to help Grandma Lee get back on her feet.
She had a few strokes and is unhappy in this home.
If our mother was here, we know our mom would drop everything just to take care of her.
Now my Aunt is trying to get rid of my grandmother’s home. I’ve been trying to keep it in the family. Nothing seems to be going right.
My grandma is not even dead yet my aunt is seeing to get rid of her home. My second eldest sister is staying there now. Our plan was, when Grandma gets better, she would be there to help her out.
Money always seems to be an issue all of sudden.
Pen-pal day begun last year when I was thinking of fun ways to get the children to write. I thought it would be awesome if the Literacy Club could write a group of children. The Children’s choir at my church, a.k.a the Little Flock was the perfect match.
For two years in a row, during Spring, the kids would begin to write each other with the hope of meeting up in June. (Kudos to Miss Lurgen, Bishop Green, and my dear Sister Latrina for allowing the children to write one another.)
This Pen-pal day the Little Flock sung ‘ Shout to the Lord’ (which was lead by Journey….the little girl with her arms crossed) during the service. After service they all ate together then did fun activities to ‘break the ice’.
A huge thank you to Jesus for letting Pen-pal day be a success and a big thank you to the parents who worked along with me.
This pass Saturday, I went to the Museum of Natural History with two little children from my church, Azeria and Jeremiah.
I received museum vouchers when I attended the Young People’s Unity day at my church and planed to go to the museum alone; however, changed my mind and decided to babysit for fun…yeah, I love children that much!
I’m glad I did because we ended up hanging out with Therese and Peter. We met at the museum and had so much fun together that we plan to have another play-date this weekend.
While I enjoyed the Butterfly Garden, the Journey to the Stars and the other exhibitions I thought the Flight of the Butterflies was the best one! It’s a short documentary on the monarch butterflies. It speaks about their journey from the United States to Mexico every fall. Before I watch this documentary I thought the butterflies died at the end of the summer. I didn’t know they actually migrated across seas to a place in Mexico!
At the end of the documentary, two things came to me: God is simply AWESOME and I its time to travel to Mexico!
