Fridays Final Thoughts

Memories, they are great.  We all have them. Some are good and some are bad. But this morning I did something that I have not done in YEARS and it made me think back.  It actually made me think back and remember two special ladies in my life.  Both of these women were very caring and were great examples of how to love and help others and take care of their grandchildren and great grandchildren.

One of them was my NaNa. And the other was mt MeMe.  Now my NaNa was my moms mother and she was awesome. I like to think I was her favorite, in fact I know I was her favorite.  She took great care of me when I was young.  T would have loved NaNa for the simple fact that she was just like MeMe.  MeMe became MY MeMe after I married T. This is T's grandmother and T was her favorite. That is what I was always told. She always took her own time to do for us, which is what made her a sweet lady.

So this morning I got up early, hit the gym, sat in the WORST traffic ever and then decided that I was going to get something to eat for breakfast. I pulled into a place that I have not been to in YEARS.  If you are from Ga. or have been to Ga. you know about

Martin's is awesome. They have the best breakfast biscuits. This was a throwback moment this morning for me because MeMe used to always bring me a biscuit when she worked with me. I mean she would bring me one EVERY morning whether I wanted one or not. So I was on the phone with T as I was pulling in to get my

and we both mentioned how Martin's made us think of MeMe

Now, I don't have a picture of my NaNa (I need one from my mom), but as I was driving to work after I left Martin's my thoughts went to my NaNa and Chick-Fil-A.  I can remember when I used to live in Germany and I would fly to Florida every summer and my NaNa would take me to the mall and we would eat Chick-Fil-A.  I would get 12 nuggets. Every time. My NaNa walking with my little nerdy ass in the mall and going to eat at Chick-Fil-A, as she got the soup and I got nuggets.  NaNa was the best.  I think about her when I eat Chick-Fil-A sometimes.

Boy memories, they are great. These two ladies made a difference in every life they touched and in so many ways. Different ways. Big and little ways.  Both of these women beside feeding me and trying to make me a fat person, loved me.  MeMe loved our kids, would have loved to see how the C's are growing up and see the great mom that T is. My NaNa, boy she would have loved to see that I met and married a special woman and calmed my crazy ass down and had some kids. Some kids that she would have spoiled with love and hugs and kisses.

Both of these women would have spoiled the C's with food too.  We would have just had to make sure it was good food.  lol.
