Double Trouble

The expression "double trouble" often refers to twins or two people  who get into mischief. Having two blogs have been my  double trouble. Very much like social media, instead of making things simple these internet sites make it more difficult. I think I have conquered a couple of these "bugs" that have been bugging me!
Chip n Dale are the cute lil chipmunks from Disney who gave Donald Duck a big headache! This is a google image of a super cute t shirt.
I have always loved this shirt. My husband's paternal great grandmother Hazen was a full blooded Oglala Sioux Indian. One of these days I will find her obituary and post it here. In her day people did not trouble themselves with political correctness. Instead of changing and rewriting history, why don't people change the way they act and make history better instead of worse?
Thomas American Horse was an Oglala Sioux. This photo courtesy of trialsanderrors was taken in 1899 and found at google images.
One of the kindest bosses I ever had the pleasure to work with was Bessie Smith. She was a full blooded Navajo Indian and grew up on a reservation. She spoke fluent English as her second language, having spoken Navajo only until she was in the 2nd grade. She was often called to the emergency room of the hospital where we worked and other departments whenever someone spoke Navajo and she never tired of helping others. She was a very well educated and very successful business woman. I will always remember her fondly. This photo, courtesy of the  Navajo People is a woman and her child circa 1904. Look at the beautiful piece of jewelry the mother is wearing. I always wanted to be able to afford a squash blossom necklace. So incredibly beautiful and completely handcrafted.
My oldest daughter has this t shirt. It is quite a conversation starter.

Many of you love coffee and others love tea.  I am getting ready to host a giveaway for my blogaversary. But first I need to blog more! I have been here 9 years as of November 1, 2018.
I love seeing sweet friendships blossom here.
A little tea humor
Coffee humor.

Strong Willed Women

Most days my life seems random. I can't seem to get it together to post to each blog at least once a month here and weekly at Phamily Blog.
I'm a day late but all day yesterday I thought about all the wonderful women in my life and their strong willed personalities and all their accomplishments.
I don't know Danica Patrick personally but I have loved auto racing since I was a kid! She was in a commercial recently. My great grandboy Harrison saw her and said Vroom Vroom! I said, do you know her? He said Uh-huh! I said, is it because she drives cars fast? He said Yeah, vroom vroom!
My youngest girl and me. She is quiet most times but she teaches little ones and she loves that job even though there is not a lot of money in it. This is a favorite photo of us.
My beautiful grandmother Cecilia, the mother of my mom and all her siblings. She was the strongest women I ever knew. I celebrate her every single day I live.
My mom loved Babe Didrikson Zaharis. Although she is more famous for her golf game, she was a superb athlete . She was outstanding in basketball,baseball, golf and track and field. My mother loved baseball and played it well. These are some of the women I celebrate.
My folks were sterling examples of good faithful people. My mother always stood by my father and she raised wonderful children. She was a people person, an athlete and faithful mother to her children and a devoted wife. She loved the Lord and reminded me everyday to "pray".
My childhood hero Annie Oakley.  As a kid I wanted to be just like her. She was amazing and never backed down when compared to men who were sharpshooters.
Rebekah and Noelle, my two older daughters. This was a cute candid shot at Rebekah's wedding in December. Both of them work in insurance and they are both smart and sassy. Love my phamily.
Pray for this sweet grandboy. Babies always need prayer. Here is telling his dad he is not interested in sleep but rather playtime.
I share Scripture with Harrison everytime he is with me. He loves his little bible, it is designed for his small hands. I hope one day he will cherish it as I treasure my first bible.
Come visit Beverly at Pink Saturday and share.
A sweetheart of a friend I met at blogging and Pink Saturday sent me this beautiful bible. Although she asked that she remain anonymous I cherish this gift and that sweet lady too. The cover is so soft and exquisite and I read from this bible daily.
Check out the pink sofa peeking in this Scripture post and visit some Pinkies today.
