Dannye took a bit of time out of her busy photo editing schedule to do a few from the Glen Rose trip. I took them from her Facebook, so my family and Dan’s friends will have seen them already. I thought my Xanga buddies that aren’t Bill or Dan’s Facebook friends ought to see them, too! Beautiful photography, beautiful subjects! Ya can’t miss!
And here we have the very stunning photographer! My Dannye Reigh! I don’t often get photos of her but Nathanael always takes her camera away from her at some point and makes certain to take pictures of her (and several of his wifey while he is at it!) I love that about him – he always thinks about Dan when they are together. I love the way he cares for her.
Since the kids left Tuesday, Mama has been having awful, terrible evenings/nights. She’s whined and cried. She’s fussed and complained. What she hasn’t done is sleep! I have really had to work at not fussing back at her, because some of her behavior is very childish, and my kids would have been spanked for acting that way!
I have to be so careful in my dealings with Mama. There are times when sympathetic words get her over the hump and help her to get a grip; then there are times when that just makes her fall deeper into her pity pit. Sometimes getting firm with her snaps her right out of her behavior; other times she becomes either angry or more confused.
Right now, I think we are both out of sorts! Bill and Jeanne both left for the weekend – both going to the deer lease, just in different towns! I’m so tired, so lean towards the grumpy side. I don’t tolerate grumpiness in others well, and I sure don’t want to make any excuses for it in myself!! If God’s grace isn’t enough for me to overcome my crabbiness, we’re all in big trouble!
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:”
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Tonight seems to be a time of great need! I’d better get off here and get myself to the throne of grace! )
God bless your day!
