My mother passed away several years ago, but if there was something she passed along to her daughters, their daughters and future daughtrs it was a steely backbone, a great sense of humor, the ability to persevere in times of difficulty and true grit. In other words, she was a woman of spunk.

She passed that down to her two daughters.

Great Granddaughter Kaeli Oquist

The leader of our pack is now in heaven and I can’t wait until we are all rejoined there again. This amazing woman gave us many gifts over time. She instilled courage, integrity, faith, hope and love. She endowed us with strong wills which have gotten us into trouble some times, but have helped us to succeed in others. I remember a line from the “Mary Tyler Moore Show,” when Lou Grant said to her, “You’ve got spunk.” That would also apply to our maternal leader. She had no idea what would come after her, but she would be happy to know that we all have a little of that spunk in us too.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
