Mom wants ice cream!!! And a quiz, if you dare! heh

Here's my MOM!! and her 3 children.(Pay attention-you will have a quiz on this pic) :)

Since this roller coaster goes up and down, I am determined to enjoy any upward direction. (Hey, you take your joys when you can, no matter how large or small.....) Mom wants ice cream!!!! (She' ll get it too. She can let ice chips melt in her mouth, the speech therapist gave her chocolate pudding last week- Mom said "WOW" (When I say that Mom "said" something, we lipread. She is not writing as much) They thought(and so did I she'd be zonked out today after yesterday, but she is smiling at her nurse, asking for ice cream, and wanting to sit up on the side of the bed(she was sposed to yesterday, but, you know what happened)

So, I take my good day-it is beautiful outside, and who knows what will happen?

That arrow on my fence? Reminds me as I look at it everday now, that God(by whatever name you call Him) is in control and really, all I can do is pray. He loves us all, and never gives us more than we can handle. (though sooo often we all think he does! )

My sweet daughter came to stay with me last night and is here today. Jody-you are a blessing.

Now for the quiz-this is a pic of my Mom on her 80th birthday. All 3 of her daughters are with her. Can you guess which one is me???

I knew that was going to be the quiz question!!!!!! I'll try and guess in a minute.
Glad to hear your Mom is having a good day. Sorry we haven't been aroudn much to post. Mom's hours being cut make it hard to get both work and fun stuff done and when she comes home she doesn't even want to look at the computer. We're sending lots of hugs to you and of course to Sunny and Scooter. We love you guys! Okay, now for a guess. We tried comparing your hand picture with the above picture and that didn't work because you 3 are hiding your hands so we're going to guess you are the one on the floor. The way we came to that choice was, Mom closed her eyes and pointed and that's the one her finger landed on. (That's how Mom makes a lot of decisions lately.)
Have a great weekend!!

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow -- which is really really hard when we all like to know which way we're headed.

My Mom has been gone for many years now, but I still remember the day-to-day hopes and fears and changes of direction as she was fighting her disease.

You're doing the right thing, Jamie.

Wirey love!!

Joan and the Boyz

Gus said...

We like ice cream too, so if your mom needs her face cleaned, just call us.

And we think you are the one in front.

with love, Madison said...

We think that ICE CREAM is a wonderful thing, even if it is just little bits to lick from her lips! Enjoy the silly pleasure she gets from her indulgence! Yesterday, Madison had ice cream for the FIRST time ... someone walking in front of the gallery fell in love with her, and shared his KILWINS with her ... she would have followed him home, it was like manna ... so Madison can totally RELATE to the desire for ice cream!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Absolutely your mom should have ice cream! We had it tonight and it makes you feel good and it makes you smile! Bring on the ice cream!
Are you the one sitting on the floor, Miss Jamie?

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

We agree with Asta, you are definitely the prettiest one for sure!! Glad you are enjoying today, like that show says, One Day At a Time!

Mack said...

Stanley said...

Sweet Jamie!

I'm so glad to hear your mama wants ice cream. Well, whatever mama wants... she definitely needs to get!

I think you are the one on the left in the blue shirt.

Goober love & smooches,

Mango said...

Too hard! If there were some doggies in the picture then I could guess who they were.

Everybody is happy when they have ice creams.


Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

hmmmm, not sure, but my first instinct on looking at the photo was that you were on the far right of the photo in the green top?

Is there a prize?

(only joking there of course!)

Ice cream symptoms well sounds good, just take each day at a time.

I cannot remember the last time I ate ice cream, you have put it in my mind now........and I have just eaten about six really sweet choccies, I will never get into my best kilt at this rate!!!!!!

or all my new Aussie outfits!

lotsaluv, Jeannie and Marvin xxxxxxxx

Eric said...

Jamie. What a lovely photo. I'm so glad today is a little better for your Mom and you too. Take each day as it comesand enjoy your daughter being with you.Now I'm thinking that's you in the green top...I'll tell you why if I'm right!

Wiry wags, Eric and B xx

Clover said...

Hi Jamie,
We are thinking of you and we are here for you; please remember that.
Hard quiz question!! My instinct was that you are the one on the floor. You are all beautiful! Great picture.
Love Clover xo

BenTheRotti said...

Thats such positive news Jamie, a step in the right direction and we are keeping you very much in our prayers and hoping that your Mom will keep on the route to recovery.

We can't see the picture so good as I'm on the netbook right now and it only has a 10" screen so the pic looks tiny.. but we will hazard a guess at the lady in the green top??

still sending you rotti zen and love,

Ben & Sue xxx

Dannan and The Girl said...

Jamie, it's The Girl here. Dannan and I are so sorry to hear about your Mom and all that you (and she!) are going through. We're sending you good thoughts and Brown Dog Love, and we're hoping that each day brings something like a desire for ice cream to keep a little sunshine in your heart.

I hope that you can keep your faith strong; often, that is all we have to guide us through such difficult times. I'm glad that you found your arrow when your faith was low, and that it is where you can see it to remind you.

If there is anything we can do (beyond sending out all the good vibes we can - that is going to be happening without question!), please send me an email at And I am so sorry that we haven't been here for you before this, I wish I'd been reading so I had known.
Love and hugs to you and to Sunny and Scooter,

WROO, it is MY turn now! Jamie, I am Upside Down and sending all my Brown Dog Power to you and your Mom. (It helps to do it Upside Down, you know. Stronger, I think!) I wuff you so much, Jamie, you keep yourself strong.

And Sunny and Scooter, sometimes as doggies we have to wait (and wait, and WAIT!) while our people take care of other things. You will get back to your bloggy soon. For now, The Girl and I know that you two are taking the best possible care of your Mom. Cuddles and reminders to smile are furry good medicine, you know!

Brown dog love to all three of you,

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Woohoo for ice cream! We are sure that your mom asking for ice cream is a very good sign! And it is certainly good medicine!

Poppy, Penny & Patches


It is good your Gran-Maw wants ice cream.

We think you mum is the one sitting on the floor.

Dog Speed and may you have an uneventful week.

Essex & Deacon

Pedro said...

Hmmmmm, I really am unsure which one is you, but because it is your blog, I'm gonna say you are the center of the photo - the one sitting on the floor??? I'm glad to hear your mom wants ice cream. My mom eats ice cream all the time. It is her favorite thing. So if your mom wants ice cream it's got to be positive!!


Rambo said...

I would have to do a sniff test! My eyes deceive me.....he he.
I love ice cream too. Maybe you want to share?

Butchy and Snickers said...

Hey Jamie, Sunny & Scooter,
Wow, ice cream?? That's got to be a good sign for sure. Hmmm, we think you are the one wearing the green shirt. And you are right, God is in control. So all everyone can do is pray to Him for guidance.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby
