Who Was Your Favorite Grown-Up?



When you were a child who was your favorite grown-up? My favorite grown-up was my maternal grandmother. Yesterday, I went to her grave site and recalled two of my favorite memories of her. I have many memories of fun grown-ups, although for some reason she's the one who sticks in my mind the most. My other grandparents were great too, of course, but we lived down the street from her in a new neighborhood branched off from an older street or lane, called Moss Side Lane. The name Moss Side came from the moss that hung from the oak trees that shadowed the street.
With the exception of my parents, this grandmother had the most influence in my life. She taught me to wish upon a star, to garden, curtsy, talk to people, read…

Oh Jos, You literally brought tears to my eyes! I'm trying so hard, sometimes I'm afraid it's too hard!

Plus I haven't a clue what I'm doing. What do you mean remember you? Are you kidding? I couldn't survive without you!

Like today, your comments made my day! You're a great friend, and I'm glad Christy found you! She's got a gift for finding prolific poets, and poets never let you down in friendship.

Thank you for checking on me! :)

I'm not quite sure what you meant by adding me on another list, but I'm not over taxed so go ahead. It doesn't take me but a few minutes to get the code moved from one place to another. :)

Congrats Ann

Blog Author Ann Clemmons said...

Hey, I'm trying to figure out how to do the code! Not a single person in my writers friends circle ever said anything about html codes when writing a blog! Anne, at The Tall Poppy was nice enough to add me to a link list and I'm trying to figure out the code. Did you know that I put every single url in the last list! I'm not kidding!

Anyway, maybe you can help me. It's still posted on The Tall Poppy. I'll met you on MyBlogLog.

Thanks Sandee! I'm glad you stopped by-

Motherhood- Courage


Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons

Words-

Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
