I thought of the heat, hundred degree temps and humidity. I thought of mosquitoes. And then I thought of the children’s love of stomping through Mama Ann’s creek. I also thought of how much Mama Ann loves to play.
Yes, you can indeed count gifts in a creek bed. Amidst the Georgia red clay of a gully. Plus so many gifts of the last week…
All the things we think of when we go to Mama Ann’s: watching birds, making nature discoveries, playing with the train set, drawing a picture, admiring the latest quilt she is working on for the newest great-grandchild on the way, eating an ice cream cone on the porch.
- an eldest girl, getting to go away to camp and then, hugging her when she’s back again!
- a birthday week full of friends, family and love.
- rain, after such a parched week, cooler temperatures.
- garden vegetables, especially microwave squash casserole.
- a whole bag full of peaches, cut up and ready to enjoy. Thank you, friend!
- a poppy seed chicken casserole we all enjoyed compliments of my sweet friend. Food is always a welcome birthday gift 🙂
- cousins playing

Only be on your guard and diligently watch yourselves, so that you don’t forget the things your eyes have seen and so that they don’t slip from your mind as long as you live. Teach them to your children and your grandchildren. Deut. 4:9
