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.

      Thank you, Cindy. Sometimes when I pray for a member of my family, I mention that member plus all others the he represents. So I join you in praying for all the little new borns that they have peace, security, love – and a teaching that ill lead them accept Christ for their security in heaven. Be it so, Lord Jesus.

    Congratulations! If this is why we missed you last week, then you are forgiven. 🙂 But seriously, cute kid.

    • oneta hayes says:

      No, last week I scooted a sofa with my hip. My hip became quite angry. I was mostly in bed about three days. Finally my son gave me a muscle relaxer that helped. Things have gone smoothly today – mostly. Thanks for liking my little one. I haven’t seen him yet.

    Congratulations, and what a wonderful start of my Monday to see this beautiful little baby. Thank you so much for sharing!

    • oneta hayes says:

      Thank you, Alice. I plan to see Oliver on Thanksgiving Day. It is be my joy. I went over to you blog and read your findings about Nicky. You do a lot of research for your posts. Thanks. I didn’t find a place to respond over there.

      • Alice says:

        Oneta, that is correct. That site attracts a lot of opinions and out of respect for the family members, and my sanity, I decided not to allow comments. Instead I encourage people to respond on social media. Twitter has lively case discussions!
