I am on Grandma Yellow Hair's Blogazine today

I am excited to be on Maggie AKA Grandma Yellow Hair's blogazine today. She is definitely worth a visit and has a wild sense of humor which I love.
Her blog is Just Between You and Me and my contribution is at http://grandmayellowhair.blogspot.com/2013/05/blogazine-guest-terra.html

I share about how I co-authored 2 books with gals I met in an online Christian writers' group.
Our most recent book is full of tips for moms, and proof that our two adult sons still love us is that my hubby, sons and I just returned from a lodge and camping trip where a good time was had by all involved.

Bicycle riding, a bag of 55 fresh raw oysters picked from the bay right that minute before we bought them, a roaring campfire, and s'mores were part of the fun. I read a book while two of my guys rode bicycles (mountain bikes) and one rode his new motorcycle. The book I read is "Her Royal Spyness" by Rhys Bowen.
Hey it is June already, how did that happen?
The summer looks promising here, and I hope for you too.

Nice to know that Maggie is doing the blogazine again. I haven't been over to visit her in awhile. In fact, blogging has been on the backburner for a while around here. But school is almost over and then I will have more time on my hands. Yay for summer vacation! Nice to read a little more about you. Best wishes, Tammy

I went to the link and read the good post. Thanks for suggesting that.
Isn't it a blessing beyond words that our children still enjoy being with us and we enjoy their friendship, too as they grow older? God is soooooo good.

Hi-ya, Terra. Nice to meetcha. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I figured I'd stop by here and return the favor.

Nice job on your guest post. (And thanks for introducing me to Maggie, too... neat blog!) Congratulations on the books; it must have been an interesting challenge to collaborate long-distance with the other ladies. I hope y'all get to meet in person some day.

Count me in as your newest groupie.

HolleyGarden said...

I think as children get older, they realize all the sacrifices a parent makes. And they become a lot more thankful and respectful. So glad you had a great time with your entire family. Your trip sounds like fun!
