A Post About Nuttin' Really

This is a post about absolutely nuttin' really.... I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite places to visit on Flickr - The Granny Chic group. They put up such fun pictures of their favorite stuff and of their homes that it just draws me in. Here are a few samplings:

For some reason it reminds me of a chenille bedspread my grandmother had at the house on Tilles in Fort Smith. It was bumpy and I remember sleeping under it. I wish I had it today but it's long gone I'm afraid. I guess the Flickr group reminds me of my childhood in a way. Anyway...check it out:

When Death Coes

What happened to my Mom? She was here everyday of my life and suddenly she's gone. Her flowers are blooming in front of the house. But she doesn't come to trim them. Her truck is over there in the driveway. But she's not around to drive it. I'm sitting in her chair on the front porch but she doesn't come out to join me. What happened? People say "life's short" a lot. What I've figured out is that life isn't short. It's temporary. That's way different from being short. Now I wait on heaven to come. Because life on earth is so temporary, I don't value stuff much any more. I think about where I'm going and what I'll be doing. What will I be doing? I hope it has to do with dogs. Now I'm no longer stuck in the pain of the past but I can tell you that it's still weird - her not being here. I live in her house with all her things around me. Sometimes I clean up the pantry because I know if she saw it she'd have a fit. I wish she was here to have a fit. So death is a mystery to me. I really don't understand it. I figured out that it's not bad whatever it is. Still. I don't like it. "When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be." I'm waiting...

Momma and Murphy... It was just temporary after all...
