Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody... I got some money cuz' I just got paid...


Hey, How's it going for everyone out there? Does anyone remember the rest of that phrase of the song in my blog title? Anyhow... it's getting to be very late on a Saturday night... I'm watching old movies... and feeling sad.

Last weekend, the hubs and I went to a 90th birthday party for my mother's older sister. Mom was actually born when her older sister was going on 13. It was during the depression. Mom was a bit "unexpected/unplanned". Not a great time to be born, according to Mom. She always felt very much a burden to her family. All she heard while growing up was she was perceived as "another mouth to feed". Can you imagine? I'm sure that some of you can... but, Mom rose above all of that and never, ever once made her two "beauties" feel insignificant or unwanted. God bless You Mama. I love you and miss you terribly.

This is my cousin's daughter (in the middle)... so I guess we're 2nd cousins/or first cousins once removed.... I don't really understand the lingo. We just call each other cousins. The two beautiful young ladies she is in the middle of are her very precious daughters. Anyhow, "We are family, I got all my sista's with me... We are family... come on everybody let's sing"! God is so gracious.

Gotta love family, Hugs, Penny Suzie

Hi Penny, I saw your comment on Ginger's blog and wanted to stop and say "hi." That is amazing that your aunt celebrated her 90th birthday. Beautiful cousin/daughters you have too. My mother was born in 1929 and died in Sept. last year. I miss her terribly too. I hope you have a good week. It is nice to "meet" you.

Hi, Penny. I also came over from Ginger's blog! Family get-togethers, especially for older relatives, can be a little depressing, as you never know if they'll be around for the next one. And I'm sure you were wishing your mom had been there with you for the party. But how nice to be able to see cousins and nieces! I'm going to stick around a little and read some more of your posts ...

Hi Penny! Thanks for visiting our site and blog! We love meeting new people and making new friends. Your party looks like it was a blast! What a special celebration. ...Let me know where you are in Penn. My business partner's daughter just moved to northeastern Pa. Have a wonderful week, Penny!
God's Blessings to you!
