A few weeks back I offered to drive out to Appling to take care of Leah while Jessica and Scott went to their bible study on Tuesdays. At that time, Leah was experiencing terrible terrors or upsets when she was put in the car seat to travel home....in the dark. All it took was moving her toward the backseat of the car and she would start a cry that broke my heart. I couldn't stand it. So doing as any self-sacrificing Weezer (aka grandmother) would do, I offered to drive out and take care of Leah. That way they wouldn't have to take her out, consequently having to put her into that darn ol' car seat to drive home in the dark. Sp that's what I've done for the past weeks. And let me tell you, I've loved doing it.
This evening the sky was beautiful as I made the drive out to Appling. I don't mind the drive at all and look forward to it almost (repeat, 'almost') as much as the task I'm on my way to.
This evening, I was running a little later than I normally do. Instead of bible study both Jessica and Scott had meetings to go to. I missed getting to feed Leah her supper but I don't blame Jessica. Who wants to tell an almost-10 month old that she can't have her supper until Weezer gets there.
This evening we played, we sang, we watched cows on TV, we read a story. Then had some yogurt and a bath. By the time Jessica got home, Leah was ready for her bottle and to be cuddled, ready for bedtime. It's a tough job.
Welcome to Weezers Haven. Why 'Weezer'? It's what my grandbabies call me and that in itself is another story (ever see 'Steel Magnolias'?)
I am the mother of three daughters and the grandmother to four granddaughters. (Even the dog is a girl.) I am a retired pediatric nurse, a Christian of 'getting stronger' faith, and a reliable prayer warrior. I love to eat bacon cheeseburgers and drink too many diet cokes. Diet A&W is my biggest weakness.
I am not a person of great or many words. Here, you won't find long compositions. I am a visual person and often use my own photos to make a point or illustrate an idea.
I am devoted to my blogger friends. If you visit, please leave a greeting. I love to know who's stopped by.
When a daughter begins to ask about the past, she is beginning to spread her wings.
A woman needs to understand where she comes from so that she may better choose where she wants to go.

Parents rejoice in watching their daughter go about her life. Her confident stride tells of a woman comfortable with who she's become, and happy with where she's heading.
