I've been able to reactivate my scrapbooking hobby and goodness knows, I've got much to catch up on. Saying that, I'm reacquainting myself with boxes and envelopes of photographs. Once they were all printed out and stashed by date in boxes marked holidays, Jessica, Ashley, Angelia, colleges, etc. Now I've not only got the printed photos but also digital photos stashed away in folders on not this computer, but the one I've inherited for my scrapbooking. And in going through these photos, I found this one of my daughter, Ashley.
She was a senior in high school and for a reason we've never been able to comprehend, she was voted 'Quietest' by her class. In finding this, I remembered a time when I, too, was voted as a superior by my classmates and was able to wear a crown.
It was Valentine's Day. 1962. Baumholder, Germany. I was 11 years old and my class voted me Valentine Queen. That would be the first of two (yes, TWO!) times when I would be voted a Valentine spectacular.
And you know. For fear of sounding like the Delta Burke character on Designing Women, I still have that crown. Complete with the original paper clip.
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.
