A BLESSED LIFE

Your assignment and discussion regarding the importance of a “feature” for blogs definitely exposes a need for me. I appreciate your encouragement @micheleweber and have purposed to do that now. So what shall it be? I have just read this scripture, “One generation will commend your works to another…” (Psalm 145:4). I have thought about that general direction but a scripture sounds so serious, and although I am sometimes serious, as I look back on my life I find so much that is so much fun and funny! I came to the city as the most naïve country girl. For example, while working as a clerk for a state department, a supervisor asked me for plain paper. I gave him one sheet! I quickly recognized by the look on his face that I had goofed. So, being quick on the draw, I probably gave him another dozen or so! How they must have laughed at me! Oh, Man, how Government would tighten its belts if I had been the boss! So I have decided to use the following guide as a feature for “Sweet Aroma.” I will write of incidents regarding my childhood, family, career, goof-ups, and successes. I will relate my first and only experience with a cigarette, the only time I ever drank coffee, what a dummy I was even though I was valedictorian, my first and only love (fortunately with the man who is my husband still), and the benefits of a country church. And I would tell of times when Jesus intervened in my life, and the blessings of being obedient to Him and his Word. As I pursue that thought I have plenty of stories to laugh about as well as plenty of advice to give! Hope I don’t end up giving advice to laugh about! With that I am kicking off my feature called, “Sugar, and Spice, and Most Things Nice.” Now that I have a feature, what do I do with it!?

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
