Decorating the Christmas Tree is finished and I am POOPED!!
Like so many of you I am in the process of decorating the house for Christmas. There is still so much to do but I was fortunate enough to have my grand daughter, Megan, over yesterday to help out. She had a perfect place for every ornament - most being on the bottom branch. But that is the joy of Christmas when you can see it through the eyes of little ones. I am only moving a few of the "glassables", as she calls them, to the top of the tree. But the tree will stay the way she decorated it - and we will love the way it looks knowing she did it with love. Wish I had half that energy! Off to do a little more decorating - am looking forward to seeing everyones decorations over the next few weeks. By the way, I love my little Charlie Brown tree which was a present from my sister, Debbie. The family thinks I have WAY too much Christmas decoration and thought this would simplify it a bit. Too funny!!
I was raised in the South - where football is every breath we breathe, flip flops are year round, we pull over to let a funeral procession pass, we don't have fireflies - we have "lightning bugs", "tatars and maters" are mandatory, "yall" is a proper noun, chicken is fried, biscuits come with gravy, banana pudding is dessert, we drink "sweet milk" and sweet tea is the house wine, and you NEVER, EVER DISRESPECT YOUR ELDERS, especially family, 'course that is Southern raising.

What my parents taught me....
Religion - "You better pray that comes out of the carpet!" Logic - "Because I said so, that's why" Irony - "Keep crying and I'll give you something to cry about". Wisdom - "When you get my age you will understand". Justice - "One day you will have kids, I hope they turn out just like you".
'When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would have not a singe bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything You gave me." '~ Erma Bombeck
