Celebrating Brittany and my 100th Post!

First of all, Happy Birthday today to my daughter-in-law, Brittany,
shown here with Calvin. I am thankful for you, and thank you for
my grandbabies!!! Love you forever!!!

This is officially my 100th post!!!!! I can't believe it!

Before all the fanfare that goes with 100, please pray for a new blogfriend, Kelly and her new baby, Harper, who is having heart surgery. Check out her story at:

Next, and again, before the fanfare, isn't this the cutest baby ever?
My granddaughter, Braylyn Ray is 9 months and so full of fun and smiles.
She is a real blessing to all! Love you forever, baby Braylyn. Grandma Carol

Now, in the spirit of "100ism", this is what 100 looks like:

For my "grandbabies", Carter, Mason and Spencer!

If I had 100 friends.....

If I received 100 roses.....

Doesn't 50 + 50 = 100?

This will be me in just 50 more years!

I found this on a devotion for today at:

Thanks, Marilyn, for listening....again! Love you- You can "meet" her at:

If you are struggling with someone in your life, take time today to intentionally lift up that person throughout the day in prayer. Pray blessings over them and ask God to help you see their positive qualities.

Dear Lord, Thank You for loving me and all my quirks. Please help me to love others in the same way—extending grace and compassion like You do. Help me to appreciate the people You have put in my life and to not look elsewhere for happiness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Congrats on your 100th are a wonderful friend and neighbor that God put in my life...and I am thankful for that. You are the blog queen for sure...maybe someday our husbands will appreciate the blog thing...until then we'll just have to remind them..."at least we are not out shopping and spending money..blogging is FREE!" or at least cheaper than a shopping spree! Well keep up the awesome blogs and thanks for inspiring so many of us with your gift of words, music and artistic talents! With lots of love,

Good for you! 100 posts. You're doing good!
I have not forgotten that you tagged me, I just haven't gotten to playing yet. I'll try to get to it tomorrow.
I've been wondering if you are keeping warm. I hope so!
Keep up the good work and always have fun while you're doing it!

Wow! 100, already???!!!

Well that's definately worth applauding about! Blogging is fun and a great way to journalize our thoughts and feelings. I'm so glad I met you!!!!

I agree with 'Anonymous' who mentions that maybe one day our hubby's will appreciate our blogging because I know that my hubby sometimes frowns upon my time at the laptop. ;-(

Tell Happy B-Day to your DIL from Sarah. And yes, your granddaughter is adorable. I also like her name!
