my kentucky momma

My Kentucky momma is coming to visit for 2 weeks in February and we can't wait! She hasn't seen the boys in awhile so they will be much bigger to her and they'll think her much smaller:) I'll have to see if she can sneak some grits in her bag as I'm running low. When she's here it's like having a party - she's that much fun! The only problem will be trying not to go back to Kentucky with her when she leaves. It's pretty dull around here after she's gone - kind of like the post-Christmas letdown.

She loves to come out in the summer as our heat rarely climbs above 70 and the nights are cool and full of stars. We might have to buy her some rain boots this trip. By the time she returns to Berea spring will be right around the corner and her deck and all that redbud and dogwood will woo her away from us.

By the way, airfare is incredibly low right now so if you want to take a trip, now's the time.

It's Saturday here and I have absolutely nothing memorable to say. I've been reading Jan Karon's A Continual Feast and it's such a treasure! She's the author of The Mitford Series
with Father Tim and Cynthia and Dooley and the gang. If you haven't read them, run to your local library and check them all out. Then put up a do not disturb sign on your door and savor them like a box of Lindt chocolates.

Here's a quote or two from A Continual Feast...

'Tis the good reader that makes the good book. -Emerson

Where Christ is, cheerfulness will keep breaking in. -Dorothy Sayers

There is a sense in which God is at the tip of my pen, my spade, my brush, my needle - of my heart and of my thoughts. -de Chardin


  1. Hope you and your Mom have the best visit ever. It has to be hard on both of you to live so far from each other, but then each time you get a chance to visit it's like a special party. so enjoy.

  2. Maybe one day we'll live closer to each other, only I hope I move there instead of her moving here:) I miss Kentucky more than I can say and sure appreciate my Kentucky friends like you.

  4. I love the happy pic of your Mom.....just like I remember her way back when. It's been a long time since I have seen her but she looks great. So glad she is coming out for a visit. She will love the change of pace and seeing everyone. Loving reading all your posts and although I stay so busy, I always have time to read your blog! Great entries in your journal. :)

  5. Thank you, Rhonda! It really means a lot to me that you take the time to read this as you don't have time! You are very faithful. I love hearing from you!
