Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Traveling Life's Railroad With My Family - 4Ms #Music

My mother-in-law visited with us for a week before leaving for her cruise. She usually doesn't come our direction, so it was good.
I just wished my FIL was able to visit also, but alas, he is now in heaven.

I miss him. Wished I had more time with him. Wish my children has more time with him.

Before she left, my MIL gave the kids a Gideon Bible. She wanted me to give it to them, I told her it's best she gave it to them as her gift. It's good from a grandparent.

Traveling Life's Railroad With My Family - 4Ms #Music:

Oh how they've grown.


Of course my daughter is going to photo bomb the photo with our kitty :) But at least it brought out real laughter and not just camera smiles :)


She loves this cat so much! Well they both do. Well the kids and I do . lol . He's our cat.

Hope y'all had a better weekend than I did.

I had a most wonderful day working with kids on Thursday all day. Came home and was hit with a nasty event that left me vulnerable and weak and only God knows again, why I don't lose my mind. But he holds me up. And all over the cleaning of the carpet. I must learn to not ask for anything.

MONDAY's theme (or any day you can post :)

theme around trains or railroad? In the title, in the song, whatever fun tunes can be found! :)

  1. The photo bombing of the cat his hilarious! I think the quote about relationships is really good. I think the longer a relationship the more those little forms of communication are even more important.

  2. Aww! nice post Colette and the cat is hilarious :-)

    Have a musictastic week and thanks for your visits :-)

  3. Colette, Photo bombs make great memories for laughs to come now and in down the line. That cat is just about as big as your daughter. lol So, glad y'all had a good visit with your MIL. I understand how you feel about your late FIL, as I do about my MIL who passed almost 3 years ago. I can't believe how quickly the time has passed, too. At our kids got to grow up know her. Great theme song pick with the "Railroad Song" by Jim Croce. :) Have a good week, dear friend!

    1. Thank you Cathy. Memories live and replayed are good and useful.

  4. The cat is so big!! The first picture is awesome!!! they all are, but that one made me laugh. I'm glad you got to visit. And of course you can ask for things. Life is give and take. :) Hope you're feeling happier now. The sun is shining, it's going to be a beautiful day!

  5. I am so happy you had a great visit. The children are beautiful. God is so good and he blesses us with so much that we take for granted. Thank you so much for sharing

  6. Great songs and your kiddos are very beautiful.

  7. I'm sure your father-in-law was enjoying the visit. Just because you couldn't see him doesn't mean he wasn't there. He was there in your hearts and memories.

  8. Wow, your kids are really getting tall & it seems like they have grown overnight! Sheesh! When did that happen? hahaha Great pics though! That first one is great the kitty was a great idea.. it's like ta da! hahaha Your son is sooooooooooo handsome... you got a couple of really cute kids. Way ta go girlfriend! Where did you find this tune? Great job. Thanks for the introduction. YOU ROCK! Have a great week. If you'll look in my sidebar you'll find 3 wks of themes for 4M if you wanna get a jump on things.
