To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

Mom's New Do.

I finally got around to cutting mom's hair. After the aid washed it this morning I got busy. What do you think? If she would open her eyes it might be better.

We had freezing rain last night . Just a little on top of our snow we also got yesterday and the night before. Not much but enough to close some schools on there first day back from Christmas break.I bet a few kids were happy. Mine is bored and whats to start his new classes at the UofA. But they don't go back till the 7th.

I took a picture of our messy backyard. With the snow it looks kind of nice.

My son and his girlfriend are playing scrabble. They ask me to play but I had to ask them how to spell scrabble so I could put it in my post . So no I don't want to play.

Arkansas won the Liberty Bowl which makes us all happy. Even mom with her new haircut.


  1. Karen you did a great job, and your mom looks so sweet, and her hair looks wonderful. I betcha the shorter hair feels good to her, and will make your job easier too.

    The snow is beautiful. It's very cold here, but no snow, and I'm glad! I'm a spring and summer girl.

    I'm not a great Scrabble player, but I sure like to play....

    Stay warm!

  2. I am sure it feels better. I hope you don't get to much snow from this cold snap coming.

  3. I sure your mom will be more comfortable with the shorter hair and it will be easier to take care of.
    I like the quilt and the pillow too on the couch in the background!

  4. Thanks All!! I thought all my Quilter friends would like the background. :)

  5. Your Mom's haircut looks good, too.

    Love the quilt on the sofa! (My Mom use to quilt ages ago.)


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
