Happy Mother's Day (and I've been busy)

Hello, Dear Ones! I want to wish you all a blessed Mother's Day! I've been blessed to have our little grandchildren this weekend and again I'm worn out this morning but my joy is full, pressed down and running over! :) Just a few snaps of our fun.
 Little Campie played so hard and fell asleep in my lap. Oh, my heart is full and what a wonderful feeling to hold this little one and to know he loves me, calls me 'Mama' :) , holds his little arms up for me to pick him up and gives me kisses. What more could I ask for?
Carter and I took a walk to a field in our neighborhood and watched the birds, followed a little brook and told stories of what we could do here in the summer. My little "Coo Coo" who hops up in the bed with us in the morning and says, "Shesho, it's day time and time for breakfast!" :) This little one hops up in my lap and snuggles in and tells me she loves me! Oh, my joy is full, pressed down and running over!
Now Mr. Precious is a runner and we buckled Campie up in the stroller and off he went with the baby! We wanted Campie to know his roots are from Texas so Mr. Precious put the Texas doo rag on his little head! 

Lord have mercy, do I feel blessed or what? Again, I have no doubt whatsoever if this long and expensive move to upstate New York was what we were supposed to do. Yes ma'am, it was! We're close to our family, have found a wonderful church, Mr. Precious has already been nominated to head up a special missions team and I have found a wonderful ladies bible study. Oh, I have to giggle, they like my accent (my accent?). Each week our bible study has refreshments and I volunteered last week and took a lemon loaf, strawberries and sausage balls. These ladies marveled at the sausage balls, never had them before! Can you believe it? One lady said, are these meat balls? Well, yes, in a way. When I told them it was just Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage, Bisquick and cheese - they asked for the recipe! :) I thought it was a hoot! :)

I'll say one more time that my joy is full, pressed down and running over!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

We Are So Blessed

We are so blessed by the gifts from your hand
I just can’t understand why you’ve loved us so much
We are so blessed we just can’t find a way
Or the words that can say, “Thank you Lord for your touch”

When we’re empty you fill us ‘til we overflow
When we’re hungry you feed us and cause us to know
We are so blessed take what we have to bring
Take it all everything
Lord we love you so much

We are so blessed by the things You have done
The victories we’ve won, and what You’ve brought us through
We are so blessed take what we have to bring
Take it all everything. Lord, we bring it to you
