This is Me

My photo
I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

W is for Elima

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

 Ok, let me explain my title. Today at Alphabet Thursday our letter is W. Now Wanda would be too easy wouldn't it? Ok, well, I'm not going to stray away from what I usually post about and that's being a Wife. Yes the retro house Wife and the life we live.


Let me introduce you to Elima. She is simply a charming lady and a wonderful Wife! We are going to go through her day as a Wife and many of you may be familiar with what you see! Here she starting the day getting the coffee ready.  She gets a bit Silly waiting for her caffeine fix, she just has the best laugh can't you just hear it?!!

Now she has had some coffee, as a loving Wife she is going to cook some breakfast and send her husband off to work well feed and ready to face the world! I love how she does it wit a joyous heart!


Now the our dear Wife has the house to herself what will she do? It's time to make the bed. Now I laugh, I've never seen anyone climb all over a bed so much to make it have you?


While she outside waiting on the laundry to dry, she tends to the garden. Oh the homemade sauces that come from fresh veggies!

 Oh dear, Oh dear, she yells running before the rain starts to get the laundry before it's all wet! BAM! goes the thunder. Our poor Wife O' the day jumps and she starts to gets the giggles again.....


Now all Wives need a moment in our busy day to take time to play. Aren't they both just so beautiful!


Back to work for this Wife, she has to get the house dusted and bathroom and kitchen scrubbed. She is so much better than I am at wearing those gloves. I hate the gloves. I have to be able to feel just what I am doing. My hands will look awful when I am her age. But I do keep the lotion companies very happy!


.....And finally like most Wives Elima is a mother, and as mothers they need to help their children from to time. Here is Elima doing her daughters hair. Well, she got the giggles ... AGAIN!! Once she starts she can't stop. It's so infectious ah hahaha!!!

I hope you enjoyed your day with Elima our Wife of the day. May you get the giggles and laugh through all your housework like she does!

I believe if you have a grateful heart for what you have and love who you are doing it all for it's all a joy!

Live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ, who loved you and gave himself as a sacrifice to take away your sins. And God was pleased, because that sacrifice was like sweet perfume to him.
Ephesians 5:2

That was a very fun Post! I loved it she is such a funny lady I too never climb atop the bed to make it but she appears to be short so maybe thats the reason why? Hugs, Diane
