We recently enjoyed a visit to Adam’s mom’s house where we also got to spend time with Adam’s grandparents, Ma and Pa Carter. Pa Carter made some great ping pong ball guns that have proved to be lots of fun. Ma Carter brought me back the quilt top I received from my Grandmother Rakestraw which she backed and hand quilted for me. It is beautiful.Ma Carter

On the way home we were talking about the relationship of Ma and Pa Carter to Adam’s mom and to us. I explained that Pa Carter was Gran’s dad and he married Ma Carter.

“Did Gran’s parents get divorced?” he asked.

“Yes,” I answered. “Gran’s mama married the man we call Paw-Paw and her daddy married Ma Carter.

After a minute of reflecting on this Gabriel replied, “People are like worms.” (We had spent some time in the garden that day and had found lots of worms.)

“How do you mean?” I asked.

“You know, you cut them in half and they just grow a new part.”


About Wendy McCollum

I am a single mom to five wonderful boys. Life is an adventure, with many twists and turns. We live in hope, always, for our great God can redeem all things. There are so many funny and precious moments that slip by too fast. Perhaps here I can save them for when my own memory fails.
