All About You in 52, Week 22

This question put us over the hump and it's all coasting from here. Shannon's been on the move catching up, so I hope that means she's feeling better. Take a minute and check out Shannon's blog. I know all of you that have been involved in All About You in 52 are going to have a fabulous book and as with me maybe a little different for having to think through all these questions.

Advise: Everyone has some, no one takes it. At least not my advice. LOL Through the years I've sought out advise. There are at times that advice was life saving or altering. Some times that advice has been common sense for living life fuller. So who advised me about something that guides my life still? I have a book called "A Gift of Memories from Grandma." In that book the last question is "What advice do you have for me?" This has been a treasure to me since the time she wrote it for me.

The first photo in the layout is actually a photo of my Grandmother, my Great Grandmother and I'm standing in front of them. We were at our Mother's Day family reunion at Great-Great's.

Take the question this week and make it yours.

"What piece of advice would you pass on
that meant a lot to you when you
received it?"

My answer

“What advice do you have for me, Grandma?”
“Just be yourself which you are. Be a good mother and wife and home maker. Teach your children the ways of the Lord by all means.”
Nettie Geraldine Cook Thomas to Her Granddaughter Deborah Lynne Perkins Lewis

RAKS...I'm trying to get caught up on my mailings. I have two RAKS sitting here to be mailed Amy and Michelle and one for Michelle from today. It seems I'm missing out on one or two. There should be no RAKS in flight, so email me at and tell me if you have not received your RAK and what the RAK was for. Starting today I'm coming up with a better system of logging RAKS. LOL
