Now, folks, we are southerners....to the core!
But my mother in law is a genteel southerner, as sweet and proper as the day is long!
Here she is with her first great grandchild! She will be getting another one in June.....a great grandson, our grandson!
This kind of southern.....below is a book she gave one of our sons for Christmas. He's away at college, the book.....still here. Sorry Mema!
Yes, there is a point to this story!
A local doctor and family bought my MIL's brother's home and have been living there for oh, about a year I think. MIL has been fretting that she hasn't done anything for them, so tonight she is taking them to dinner and we're invited to go! So, that's why I say another night out! Two this week, three if you count church last night and I do! Oh, yea, one was last week, but who's counting?!
I may can put his picture away for this week!
Oh, and that man above? With me?? My husband and best friend. I love having time with him, but I can be a bit of a well, nag. I call it helpful reminders, but he swears it's nagging!
So here are a couple of scriptures I have to keep in mind, especially during tax season!
The wise woman builds her house, but with her own two hands the foolish one tears hers down. Proverbs 14:1
And DH's particular favorite...
A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day
So on the days I'm particularly helpful, he has been known to say drip, drip, drip.
