FALLING

Here on the Ponderosa I've fallen when it's been colder than a nuns toes on a ice packed ski slope and slicker than wet okra in a soapy sink. When my friends worry 'bout me fallin' out here in the middle of nowhere I just laugh 'cause in the cold months I'm padded better then the Michelin Man and simply bounce back up. Warm weather is a whole different story.

I did fall hard several summers ago when Farm Boy was outta state. It was hotter that a tire fire when I was haulin' mulch for my flower beds as I hung my Croc flippy on a rock and went down. I laid there rollin' in the dirt sweatin' like Richard Simmons to the oldies thinkin' I could lay there for days roast bakin' 'till tender in the sun and nobody would ever know. My kiddos have often joked about gettin' Mom one of those "I've fallen and can't get up thingies"....gee, 'could'a used one. I finally sucked it up and literally crawled to the house lickin' my wounds.

'Seems if there are grandkiddos involved, I'll fall to the floor faster than a speedin' ticket. Yep, give this Ozark Farm Chick a kid and I'll go down faster than a pregnant pole vaulter in lead tennis shoes. I'm usually the photographer but I've noticed most of the pictures taken of this chick, I'm crashed on the floor. It's just the way I fly!!!
When I'm with the grandkiddos I want to be present, right there in the middle where the action is and I'll fall harder than my sister's first attempt at Triple Chocolate Souffle' to get there. Bein' Grandma Muzzie makes my heart sing and my spirit soar. See me grinnin' like a mule eatin' cockeburs???
I'm well aware how abundantly blessed I am. Shoot, if I were any luckier I could sit on a fence and the birds could feed me. Isn't it wonderful to know as humans we don't have to be perfect. In life there are times we're gonna fall like a giant boulder off an overpass where the Father is immediately present with outstretched arms 'just waitin' to catch us with His unconditional amazin' love! Without Him in my life I'd be so helpless I couldn't pour the rain outta my camouflaged manure stompin' boots with a hole in the toe and directions stamped on the heel! I'm sayin'....
Well shut my mouth, God has blessed this rockin' Grandma with eight perfect grandkiddos and a heart to love each and every one like the first. I've fallen and fallen hard~ again and again. In 1977 LeBlanc and Carr sang these lyrics in their hit single, "I'm falling, woah, I'm falling , I'm falling in love with you." Just when I thought my heart was stuffed full as it could get, I found myself singin' these lyrics as each grandkiddo was added to the brood. Heck, there's even room in this overflowin' heart of mine to love God more and more each day. The heart's a miraculous organ that way.
Posted by Picasa
It wasn't 'till 1980 when LeBlanc came to know Jesus that he realized the real power of love. It was then he began recordin' Christian themed music like "Say a Prayer" and "Person to Person." It's glorious when the love of grandkiddos washes over me like a warm shower and even better to feel the Heavenly Father's love saturate my very soul. This chick feels fine as creamed country gravy to know I'm loved so intensely that He will always be there for me when I'm "Falling!!!"


God bless ya'll!!!

  2. Those are some beautiful pictures! I swear you look like you are 29. No way do you have 8 grandkids!

    You keep being on the floor with them. They need an awesome person like you in their lives. It will help them be GROUNDED when the tough times come knowing that their grandmother is there every step of the way.

  5. no Kidding...no joke...I did not recognize these pictures as being you....honestly, I don't know what I was thinking. I thought that you had very short hair and I was just assuming that this was a daughter/DIL with the grandchildren..
    You look simply amazing! Aging has it's way of bringing us all to our knees from time to time...
    You are Blessed with a gorgeous family!
    Blessings..

  7. You are one pretty lady Nezzy!
    Love your golden locks!
    And you have some beautiful grand-kids there as well!
    I see little Minnie Me there, just a spittin image of her Grandma!
    Now you be careful out on the Ponderosa, we don't want our Nezzy all banged up!
    But seriously, right now I worry so much about my Mom falling.
    We have ice and snow and she has Parkinson's too which makes her a bit off balance at times.
    Winters can be tough on the elderly so when I'm there I'm moving somewhere warm for the winter!
    Hugs friend,

  10. What a sweet post :)
    Love the pictures of you with the grands, and loved singing along to the song!
    I'm a 'floor sitter' too.
    My mother in law finds it dis-tasteful.
    She would change her mind if she ever got down on the floor and played with the grands!

  11. Fantastic looking grands!!! That blonde lady's not half bad either.

  12. you don't look old enough to have those grand kids. I can't wait until I can sit in the floor with grand kids, I am also a 'floor' person.

    ReplyDelete
  13. You are the cutest thing! And so are those beautiful Grandkiddos! I love your hair too...I wish I would have the patience to grow mine out...I also just have to laugh at your writing. I just enjoy reading your blog so much! I understand about falling, just be careful. I've fallen myself..usually outside on the ice. My best fall was when I was working...I work in surgery and we have lots of electric cords to all the equipment everywhere. The Surgeon was at the scrub sink and I was draping the patient when I tripped and hit the floor. The Doc put his head in the door to see me on the floor. He asked if I was OK because that was a really loud bang when I hit..so embarrassing. I didn't want to yell out when I hit because the patient was awake...getting ready for us to fix his hemorrhoids! Atleast he couldn't look up..or down...to see what that earthquake was!

  14. Great post and wonderful pictures! You look amazing! I am guilty of taking lots of photos, but I am rarely in any!

  15. You have a beautiful family, Nezzy. In fact, I think I've fallen for them a little myself!

    ;)

  16. The pictures are adorable! No greater place to be, than in the floor with children you love! You look amazing! Are you sure you are old enough to have all these grandkids?

    I don't believe I have ever heard this song. I can't believe it! I love this style and love the music! Must not have been meant to be until now.

    It is so good to know, when I am falling, the arms of my Father are open and waiting to catch me and hold onto me.

    xoxo

  17. Nezzy, you are just glowing in all these pics! Your family is so lucky to have such a wonderful woman in their lives! My mother has only looked at my blog maybe three times after I've had to ask her over and over. So happy to have found you and all these kind people in blogland! I really love that song and hadn't heard it in years...thanks for the reminder. :)

  18. Eight grandkids? You don't even look old enough to have one!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Beautiful pictures of all the kiddos and their Muzzie. I love the way you have expressed our heart's capacity for love and the way we fall in love all over again with each new grandchild.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your words are like magic Nezzy. You described a grandmothers love so perfectly! Although I am a bit worried about grandma fallin', we can't have that. Of coarse you would have all of those gorgeous grandkiddos to help you, thank God for those eight beautiful blessings!!
    The photos were beautiful! All of you.
    Love Di ♥

  28. What an uplifting post! You are definitely one photographic chick! I hate to have pictures made of me and so there are very few around. I too am the proud owner of two beautiful and loveable grandkids. Being a grandmother is absolutely the best...next to being a child of God. Thank you for such a sweet post.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I loved seeing you and your grandkids. I do know what you mean about falling for the over and over. Each one is so precious. I'll be having my 17th one come this Spring. My only daughter is having her first baby and I'm thrilled for her and for me. Another grandbabe to cherish. Life can't get much better than this.

  32. Hi Nezzy Sweetie...
    Oh my how beautiful you are. Look at these gorgeous pics of you surrounded by love. (I have 8 little grandkidling blessings as well.) They are the best. We get to spoil them and send them home. Love it...

    I love it when you write Nezzy, you make my heart happy and allow it to sing. I would so enjoy sitting on your porch and sharing a little laughter and tea. What fun.

    Have a beautiful weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  33. Now that's the kind of fall to take! Not like me, I missed the last step yesterday and I went crashing down. Bruised my hand and knee. AND the hubby slept right thought it 12 feet away!

    Blessings to you and yours.

  34. Enjoyed seeing the pictures - You are a great looking bunch. :) If I got down on the floor, it may take.......well never mind!

    And could you be any more beautiful???!!! Love seeing pics of your gorgeous smile!!!

  40. I used to get down on the floor with the,little ones all the time..then they grew up and I grew older..so now I only play with the dog or scrub floors whilst I am down there!
    You have a beautiful group of grands..and I can see they love their beautiful Muzzie very much. You are all blessed!
    Have a great week Nezzy:)

  45. Beautiful grandkids, Nezzy and you are a very attractive Granny, for a woman! I think I might hate you for it. LOL!

    I haven't heard that song in FOREVER!!! Need to see if hubby has it in his record stash!

  46. Those beautiful-looking grandchildren obviously take right after their grandma!

    Have a beautiful weekend too, Nezzy!

    XOXO Lola:)

  47. You have a lovely family, and you must be giving them a wonderful experience of having a loving hands on grandma. This is something I am missing out on at the moment because they are in the UK and we are in France. Hopefully in the future they will be able to come and spend their summers here once we have the bedrooms to accommodate them. You looked lovely and content in the photos, by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  48. From love, comes love. And apparently, eight beautiful grandchildren too!
    I hope to be as blessed one day.

  50. The song made me cry it is so beautiful. You look so young, too young to have 8 grandchildren. They are such a blessing aren't they?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh Nezzy, your similes are simply the best. HEY! HOW ABOUT IF YOU WERE TO PUBLISH A BOOK ON YOUR SIMILES?????????????????? NOW THERE IS AN IDEA!

    Darlin', you are beautiful. And those grands are going to remember you for so many virtues, but one of them will be that SMILE!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE TO YOU! Anita

  59. Nezzy how wonderful for you to have eight grandkids, It must be a blast when they come to visit you. To me you look too young to even be a Grandma, as for your description of your mud slopping manure boots with a hole in the toe, I could not help but laugh, You are hilarious, every time I visit here I love it more. hugs.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Nezzy, you and the grands are so photogenic. What a lovely bunch of kiddos. You look great for a grandma of eight. I remember getting down on the floor with my grands, it was a very long time ago in a far away place. Now I'm so old that if I was able to get down on the floor without breaking a hip, I wouldn't be able to get back up. You're a hoot and I love visiting here. God bless

  61. Oh Nezzy just taking a break before i go and make the beds,i have just listened to the song "falling" beautiful song and amazing pictures on the video, the person sitting on the end of the rock!! Wow what must that feel like!Love the pictures of grandchildren, mine are coming over tomorrow, i can not wait. Have a lovely weekend in what ever you do. Best wishes jackie x

  68. What a wonderful post, Nezzy.... Yes, with God in our lives and a fabulous family, what else could we want???? Well--let's include our fabulous blog friends in that!!!!!

    You have 8 grands. I just have 5 --but they are all awesome, just like yours...


    Be careful and don't FALL again... I fell once a few years ago coming out of the KFC... I wasn't hurt --but was embarrassed...When we hike, I am always looking down because I do have a fear of falling... Hubby tells me that I miss out on so much when I'm looking down... ha

    Have a great weekend and stay WARM.
    Hugs,

  70. You take care of yourself, Nezzy. We wouldn't want to lose you! :)

  71. Hi, I followed you home. Wow. Can I say that being a Grandmother obviously agrees with you. You don't look old enough to have any grandchildren, let alone eight.
    I have also taken some falls, but crawling is good exercise.

    ReplyDelete
  72. That's one young looking grandma! And a fine pack of young uns...

    Great song too!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hi there Nezzy, You look radiant seated among these adorable grands! Yes, you are very blessed.
    The song you refer to here was popular when I was in college and I remember it well. Funny, how music reminds us of a certain time in our lives.
    Always a joy to visit with you. God bless you all this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Nezzy I was asked this question many times...when pregnant with #3,#4,#5....How in the world could I truly love so many children?

    Are you kidding me....how could I not...lol
    And now with 11 grandchildren...and more down the road...my heart never fills full...there is always room for more. I too sit on the floor with them...sometimes you will find me rolling on the floor with them also...lol

    I praise God for creating us to love...and to have created in us such a beautiful organ...the heart. I love seeing your family pictures.

    And PS my family has threatened me many times about the help button...the last time I fell in the mud I broke my knee cap....that was fun...dragging myself back to the house...and trailing mud everywhere...but I washed up...and drove myself to the hospital...we country gals have to take care of ourselves....lol

    Hugs Cindy

  75. Look at all those good looking grandkids! My mom keeps telling me I have NO IDEA what it's like to love a grandchild. I keep saying, isn't it kind of like loving a child? And I may have a couple of good ideas about that! ;)

  78. Gosh, I remember that song. It's a good one.
    You are a purty lady Nezzy....
    That is interesting that you were in a car accident too. I neglected to say on my post that I too had many many stitches, and surgeries to FIX the lacerations on my forehead.
    You certainly are glowing, like a true grandma, in those pictures with your grands.
    Nothing makes my heart swell like getting hugs from my grandkids and kisses and laughs...you know the kind of stuff of which I am talking.
    I thank God every day for my family....ALL OF THEM.
    And I thank God for our extended "human family"...friends, associates, people like YOU who just , each day, try to make the world a happier place for people.

  89. Love this post!! And thanks for visiting with me the other day, I am just getting the ol' fingers a movin' somewhat around the keyboard to stop by and say howdy'all!!

    I noticed you may be falling faster than a speedin' bullet to get down where the action is with the grandkids...but the thing I notice more [other than the wonderful smiles on each and everyone of you] is that you're barefooted in one photo!!!--------that's my kinda gal!!!

  90. You have beautiful grandchildren. I agree with you about being present. When my granddaughter comes over I get down and play with her. I don't remember making such an effort with my own kids. I loved that falling in love song too.

  95. Hi there, Every time I stop by I laugh with all your fun sayings so I'm fallin for your blog and following you now. Of course, I've taken a couple of spills myself and also have 9, soon to be 10 grands, so we have much in common besides of love for Jesus.
    Blessings to you.

  98. I agree 100% with you, nothing like grand kids to bring a grandma to her knees flat on the floor. You have a nice bunch of grand kids. You are such an upbeat kind of grandma, it's no wonder the grandkids love you so. JB

  107. You have such cute grandkids! You look too young to be a grandma! Enjoy your week and stay warm...some wintry, snowy weather is moving into Missouri Monday!

  108. I'd love to read a post from your grandkids about YOU. I'm guessing they'd be telling us that you're the greatest grandma EVER!

    You and your family are beautiful through and through.

  111. I've been wondering why you haven't been "showing up" on my blogroll. Somehow, I was no longer your "follower". What? This has happened a few times on other blogs. Boo! I almost missed you rolicking on the floor with those adorable grandchildren. I can't wait to have a few!!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  114. Yikes. Falling regular is not good. My nemesis is the icy path to the bird feeders.

  116. I love seeing these pics of you and your grands, you are so beautiful...and I am just like this, when I am around my grands I can always be found on the floor with them in my lap or arms..tickling and doing our tricks together..I hardly even listen to the grown ups talking, my focus is the little one! ;D

    Gotta love a Grandma that gets on the floor with the kids!

  120. Dear Nezzy, You look way too young to be grandma to 8 kids. And you're as much of a blessing as you are blessed! No falling allowed if there's pain involved. Otherwise, keep doing everything you're doing. It's working for ya!
    Hugs from the California Coast.

  136. I remember that fear of laying out in the pasture for days. I won't ever know about grandkids but will just watch others enjoy theirs from afar. God bless you and yours.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I always get a laugh when I come over here. Even when you write about the most tender things...like grandkids. But mostly, I like to think of sitting on the porch with you, having an ice tea, and swapping stories.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Nezzy, I have always thought of you as a beautiful person..and definitely cute personality wise..etc..but these photo's of you with your grands ...you are a really beautiful woman!

  162. Such a precious post - - - about your grandkids and about our Father's LOVE for us. You had a good lead-in, too.
    Do you teach any women's Bible Studies? You have great illustrations and "hooks" to get people interested.

  163. Hello there, simply becosbobetme alert to your weblog thru Google, and found that it’s really informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels

  164. I just have to ask. The way you talk/write, that's just put-on, right? you don't really talk like and say those over-the-top corny things for real, yes? You are a comedian maybe? Just wondering. Perhaps you do stand-up somewhere? You seem like a dad-gum happy person I must say.
