I’ve talked about my sweet mamaw on here a few times and I’ve been wanting to write about her for some time now. I went over to her house last night for a feverish crochet session, so I figured now would be a great time for that post!
I’m making an afghan for my sister for Christmas and I am WAY WAY WAY behind schedule. So, I called up sweet mamaw and asked her if I could come over for a couple of hours, away from the distractions at home, and crochet my fingers to the bone!
We had such a nice time. She is so much fun to be around and has a great sense of humor. We told redneck jokes to each other and traded funny stories and basically just chatted the time away. 2 hours flew by and before I knew it, it was time to go home. Part of me wanted to just spend the night, like I did when I was a kid. Oh how I wish I could have done that! But the thought of 2 sweet little girls at home snapped me back into the real world.
I really love spending one on one time with her. She has 7 kids, 17 grandkids (I think) and 12 (I think) great-grandkids! She is 69 years old, but she looks 10 years younger than that and she acts even younger. She is one of the sweetest people you could ever meet and I love her so much.
I really cherish every minute that I get to spend with her. Our family is so blessed to have her.
