Today's Verse

Tuesday, December 18, 2007


T - Tales... Stories of my ancestry relayed to me through my grandmother. Without her stories, we would never have known when Mother Ray was a little girl, her mom walked six or seven miles to school because she had forgotten one of her nine petty coats, or that when Mother Ray broke her left arm cranking the Model T, that Mattie B took all the seams out of the right arms of all her dresses. Tales of my growing up that I get to relay to Mattie May so that she can pass those down to her grandchildren.

Also fairy tales, not just the ones that we all grew up with, but also the ones Mattie B changed to fit her ideas: the story of the Seven Little Billy Goats whose mom went to town to buy beef, buffalo and beer.

And finally, but most importantly, the tales in the Bible; Adam & Eve, Noah's Ark, the story of the birth, death and Resurrection of Jesus that gives us the faith that there is something so much better to look forward to.

T....Traci Lyn! Where would I be without that sister of mine. She is sometimes more irritating than a toothache, but she is my cheerleader, counselor, 2nd mother (which drives me crazy), but most of all my bestest friend.
T...Tim because he loves Traci, is usually a great uncle and I love him.
T...Tony because he is a whole new world! Love him too.
finally T....TODAY! which started off with Throwup! Poor Makaley. But, I am happy to be alive and well TODAY!
