Down Through The Women

I did this digital scrapbook heritage page on the line of women from about 1878 down through my great grandmother, grandmother, mother, sister, and niece. A straight female line.

Horsewoman



It's been passed down that Noda Vesta Miller, my great grandmother, was a great horsewoman and had her own saddle horse. This page tells the story of how she rode her horse down the mountain in a storm to warn her married daughter (a new mother at the time) about a flash flood. She made it just in time and saved Pearl and her baby's life because the flood washed their house away. Elaine and Melinda have her gift with horses. I rode too for a few years but they rode most of their lives.

I did this digital scrapbook page as a heritage page.

John Edward Lamb and Noda Vesta Miller


This is Noda Vesta Miller and her husband, John Edward Lamb. They are my great grandparents, my maternal grandmother's parents. Her mother, Noda, died at the young age of 31 yrs old in the Spanish Flu Epidemic in 1919. She had given birth to 6 daughters but two of them died during that same time. She and Ed lost Sueda in 1918 to the Flu. Noda was pregnant with another little girl. She had her baby in January, 1919 but died a few days later due to the Flu and birth. Ed named their baby after her mother, Noda Vesta Lamb. Baby Noda died 3 months later. It was a devastating time for Ed and their surviving daughters, one of whom was my maternal Grandmother.

William Miller & Mary Ann Glance

William Miller and Mary Ann Glance married and had a son named
Anderson Miller who married Cynthia Hickam and they had a daughter named
Noda Vest Miller who married John Edward Lamb and they had a daughter named
Geneva Margaret Lamb who married Wilford William Reese and they had a daughter named
Eleanor Elaine Reese who married William Avery Huneycutt and they had a daughter...ME!


William Miller was born between 1796-1799 in North Carolina or possibly in Georgia. At this time I don't know his parents or siblings. He married Mary Ann Glance. Mary Glance was born some time between 1795-1810 (depending on the source) to Charles Glance and Catherine Cross (aka Caty Cross, Catie Cross, Catharine Cross). I know that William Miller died after making his will dated 10/19/1853. Mary Ann Glance Miller died 11/29/1857.

Register of Deeds, Buncombe County Courthouse, Asheville, NC, 28801, Book 20, Pg 416. James Coter sold land to a William Miller on Shut In Creek in 1835. It was 200 acres.

They had 5 children that I'm aware of:

1) Catherine Miller (Dob: Between 1818-1820 in North Carolina; Dod: ? in ? ) who married Simon Church (DOB: 1822-1827 in North Carolina; DOD: ? in ?). She is listed in William Miller's Will as "Catharine Church". They had 5 children that I'm aware of: Mahala A. Church, Emma Church (aka Ema Church), John Church, Charles Church, Wesley Church.

2) Samuel Miller (Dob: About 1822 in North Carolina; Dod: ? in ? ) who married Jane Johnston (DOB : About 1825 in Tennessee; DOD: ? in ?). He is listed in William Miller's Will. I'm not sure about Jane Johnston, the Samuel and Jane Johnston Miller that I found in 1860 Census of Bradley County, Tennessee may not be the same Samuel Miller.

3) Anderson Miller (Dob: 11/1834 in Buncombe County, NC; Dod: Between 3/19 and 3/25/1907 in Madison County, NC) Ance Miller married Cynthia Hickam (DOB: 11/1841 in Buncombe County, NC; DOD: 10/12/1929 in Hot Springs, Madison County, NC) on 10/21/1860 in Madison County, NC. He enlisted at age 26, April 5, 1862, in in Madison Cty, mustered in as a Musician (Drummer). Private in Company B, 60th NC Infantry Regiment. He was listed in William Miller's Will. This is my direct ancestor. They had 8 children: William Robert Miller, Sarah Jane Miller, Ora Catherine Miller, George Clinton Miller, Hester Miller, Carrie Miller, Florence Miller, Noda Vesta Miller. See a separate posting for Anderson Miller and Cynthia Hickam Miller and their family.

4) Mary Ann Miller (DOB: About 1834-1840 in Buncombe County, NC; DOD: ? in ? ) who married Greene Waddell (DOB:About 1838 in ?; DOD ? in ?) on 8/9/1855 in North Carolina. She was listed in William Miller's Will. They had 3 children that I'm aware of: Greene Waddell (DOB: 1/1864 in Cocke County, TN; DOD: ? in ?; married Betty J. Gorrell); James Madison Waddell (DOB: 5/15/1864 in Madison County, NC; DOD: 1/9/1942 in Hot Springs, Madison County, NC; married ?); Lawrence Victor Miller (DOB: 2/3/1873 in Madison County, NC; DOD: 9/22/1955 in French Broad, Madison County, NC)

5) Elizabeth Miller (Dob: Between 184040 in Buncombe County, NC; DOD: ? in ? ) who married F. M. Wells (possibly F. M. Wells as he is listed in William Miller's Will). She was listed in William Miller's Will. I don't know any more about Elizabeth Wells.

I think this is the right Samuel Miller because he was living next to his father in the 1850 Census with his wife, "Jane" and his children, William Miller, Robert Miller, James Miller, Anderson Miller and John Miller. His father, William Miller, died after 1854. Then we see Samuel and Jane Miller in Tennessee with their youngest child being 7 yrs old and was born in TN which is close to the time his father died. The house was full with the oldest male being John Johnston which I would assume is Jane's father.

**Note** See the quilts hanging behind them. This gave them a backdrop but also served to show off the women's needlework. It is obvious they are sitting beside a log building of some sort. Photograph probably taken around 1879-1880 before Noda was born in 1887.


Anderson Miller (aka Ance Miller) was born 11/1834 in Buncombe County (in a part that is now in Madison County), NC to William Miller and Mary Ann Glance.

The first census to list all the members of the household by name and age is the 1850 Census. In the 1850 U.S. Census of Buncombe County, NC Anderson Miller is living at home with his parents. On the same page is a Francis Miller who is 55 yrs old and his family. Is this William Miller's brother? Then there is William Miller (Anderson's father) and Mary (Anderson's mother), Anderson, Mary and Elizabeth. The next household is Simon Church and "Cate" Church. This is Anderson Miller's oldest sister. The next household is "Miller, Sam" at age 23. Who is this?

In the 1860 Census of Madison County, NC, Anderson is still living at home but his mother is listed as Head of Household so his father had probably died between 1850-1860.

1860 Census of Madison County, NC (Roll M653-905, Pg 317, Mage 47, Lines 29-40, and Pg 318, Lines 1-2 is "Miller, Marry" and family)

Anderson Miller married Cynthia Hickam Lusk. She had been married previously to James A. Lusk (or James A. Luck). She and Lusk were married 3/28/1857. She married Anderson Miller on 10/14/1860 in Madison County, NC according to the NC Marriage Collection, 1741-2004. (The NC Marriage Collection, 1741-2004 has her listed as Cynthia Lusk and Sintha Lusk.)

Cynthia Hickam was born 11/1841 in Buncombe County (probably in what is now Madison County), NC to Jacob Hickam, Jr. (aka Jacob Hickham, Jr.) and Sarah Hunter (aka Sally Hunter or Sallie Hunter).

In the American Civil War Soldiers database, Anderson Miller enlisted on 4/5/1862 in Madison County, NC as a Private (Drummer/Musician) in Company B of the NC 60th Infantry Regiment AND as Private in Co. H, 2nd Mounted Infantry Regiment, in TN. He would have been age 26 or 28 yrs old. He could not have been in TN and Madison County, NC on the same day. According to U.S. Civil War Soldier Records and Profiles, Anderson Miller enlisted on 5/4/1862 in Madison County, NC as a Private in Co B, NC 60th Infantry Regiment. And the U.S. Civil War Soldiers, 1861-1865, (Film #M230, Roll 27) as a Private Drummer in Co. B, NC 60th Infantry Regiment. He was wounded at Murfreesboro, TN on 12/31/1862. According to the NC Troops 1861-1865, A Roster, Vol XIV, Pg 519, he was wounded above his left eye and had his right thumb shot off (although, in the photograph above, taken about 1879-1880, it appears he has his right thumb). Between 12/31/1862-4/30/1863 he was reported "Absent-wounded". While he was "Absent-wounded" his first son, William Robert Miller, was born in February 1863. In May and June, 1863 he is reported as "Returned to duty". On December 21, 1863 he is listed as both "Mustered out" and "Missing-Deserted" depending on the source. In the 1890 Veterans Schedule (Roll 58, Pg 3, SD 5, ED 183, Lines 29-30) Anderson Miller and his cousin, John Miller, say they enlisted May, 1861 and were both discharged in May, 1865 having served 4 yrs. Anderson lists himself as a Drummer. The family story is that he came home and became a licensed Confederate liquor maker with his mill and still on Shut In Creek, Madison County, NC. Considering the 1866 IRS Tax Assessment Lists where he lists his occupation as "Spurts" (which may mean "Spirits"), the story may be true or, at least, partly true.

Anderson died between 3/19/1907-3/25/1907 in Hot Springs, Madison County, NC. He is probably buried at the old Antioch Cemetery in Madison County, NC because that is where his youngest daughter, Noda, and two of her children are buried. It's also where his wife, Cynthia Hickam Miller, is buried. Noda married Ed Lamb and they had a passle of girls. Noda's daughter, Sueda, died of the Spanish Influenza in August, 1918. Noda was pregnant with their last daughter. She had the baby girl and they named her Noda Vesta Miller. But Noda died of the Spanish Flu and the complications of childbirth. The baby only lived about 3 months before she died too. Ed took his surviving girls and his widowed mother-in-law down to Laurens, Laurens County, SC to work in a textile mill. They are there in the 1920 Census. At some point he brought the girls and Cynthia back to the mountains and left the girls in the Dora Lynn girl's school. He went back to Laurens. One of the neighbor's from the mountains had also lost her husband so she went looking for Ed in Laurens and offered to mother his girls if he would father her orphan children. They came back married although it wasn't a good marriage arrangement. Cynthia Hickam Lusk Miller died 10/12/1929 in Hot Springs, Madison County, NC. According to her death certificate she was paralyzed the last 2 years of her life so she was probably living with her daughter, Orry.

Anderson Miller's Will:


Madison County, NC
I, Anderson Miller, of the above named State and County being in my 72nd year and of feeble health but yet in my sound mind doth this day make my last will and testament to this my earthly heartage. First I bequeath my soul to the God who gave it and my body to the earth as it were deeming this to be of the most importance of all I have care of on this earth. I next will my wife my mill and property where it now stands to be the absolute property of my wife Cintha Miller for her only use and behoof for ever so long as she may live and at her death the property to be sold in a way and at such a time that it will bring the most and the proceeds divided equally between all my children and all my personal property to remain that of my wife's and all of my other property to be sold at a time and in such a way as it were bring the most money. And the proceeds of such sale to be equally divided between my lawful heirs. After paying all my lawful claims that may assize against me I also appoint, E. Lawson without bond my true and lawful Executor to carry out in full this my last will and testament here on earth given under my hand. This is the 19th day of March, 1907. Signed by Anderson Miller with J.R. Lamb and James L. Green as witnesses.
(The witness , J.R. Lamb, is also related to our Lamb's being Rev. John Rollins Lamb was the father of Elbert Sevier Lamb but he died in 1880 so he couldn't have been the witness. But he had another son named Lt. William Riley Lamb and he had a son named John R. Lamb born about 1864 so he would have been younger than Anderson and may have been the J.R. Lamb who witnessed Anderson's Will.)

John Edward Lamb and Noda Vesta Miller

John Edward "Ed" Lamb



and



Noda Vesta (or Vester) Miller













John Edward Lamb aka Ed Lamb was born 5/22/1882 (or 5/29/1882) in Cedar Creek, Tennessee to Elbert Sevier Lamb and Nancy Margaret Malinda Ricker. I'm pretty sure Cedar Creek would be in Greene County, TN. In the 1900 Census Ed was 18 years old and living at Civil District 18, Greene County, Tennessee. He moved from Greene County, TN to Madison County, NC and McDowell County, NC throughout his life. He had very limited education. He was a farmer until they moved from the mountains to Marion in McDowell County, NC. They moved so he could get a job at the textile mill there called Clinchfield Mill. They had lived in Upper Shut In Creek, Madison County, NC before then.



This is a picture of me at Shut In Creek, Madison County, NC where the Miller Mill was..




















This is the Clinchfield Mill in Marion, NC.




Ed married Noda Vesta Miller or Noda Vesters Miller on 10/9/1904. Noda was born 11/6/1887 to Anderson Miller, aka Ance Miller, and Cynthia Hickam.


As the story goes, Noda had met a travelling man and gotten pregnant with her daughter Pearl Juanita Lamb when she was only 15 years old. Pearl was born 8/12/1900. When Ed married Noda in 1904, he adopted Pearl and raised her as his own daughter.


When Ed and Noda lived on Upper Shut In Creek (Madison County, NC), a neighbor shot and killed Ed's dog. Ed had a quick and violent temper so he grabbed his gun and was going to shoot his neighbor. Aunt Hester and his daughter, Fanny, were able to stop him. It seems his quick passions were a problem throughout his life.


Ed and Noda Lamb had a total of 6 daughters:


1) Pearl Juanita Lamb (Dob: 8/12/1900 in Madison County, NC; Dod: 2/15/1987 in Lincoln Park, Wayne County, Michigan) who married Dewey Roberts in May 1916. Dewey was born between 1896-1898 in Tennessee. He died on 9/2/1921 of Typhoid Fever in Laurens, Laurens County, SC. They had a daughter named Edna Roberts.  Pearl married Floyd Alexander Shipley on 4/20/1922. Floyd was born on 2/14/1903 in Greene County, TN and he died 4/20/1944 in Asheville, Buncombe County, NC. They had six children: Hermon William Shipley, Floyd Alexander Shipley Jr. but always called Thomas or Tom Shipley, James Lewis Shipley (aka Jim Shipley), Mary Louise Shipley, Charles Eugene Shipley (aka Gene Shipley), Claude Hugh Shipley.



2) Sueda Lamb (Dob: 10/23/1906 in Madison County, NC; Dod: 8/1918 in Madison County, NC). Sueda was only 11 years old when she died of the Spanish Flu during the Flu Epidemic. She is buried beside her mother at the Old Antioch Cemetery, Madison County, NC.


3) Artie Mae Lamb (Dob: 4/3/1908 in Hot Springs, Madison County, NC; Dod: 12/28/1999 in Walland, Blount County, TN) who married Clyde Bovy Johnson on 1/20/1923 in Johnson City, Unicoi County, TN. Clyde Johnson was born 1/13/1902 in Yancey County, NC and died 7/27/1982 in Marion, McDowell County, NC. They had six children: Pauline Ruth Johnson (aka Polly Johnson), Earl Finley Johnson, Sarah Margaret Johnson, William Gaston Johnson (aka Bill Johnson), Wilford Lee Johnson, Helen Mae Johnson.



4) Fannie Marie Lamb (Dob: 2/2/1911 in Madison County, NC; Dod: 12/29/1988 in Greenville, Greenville County, SC) who married Conrad Cutlass Copeland, aka Con Copeland, on 9/22/1927 in Marion, McDowell County, NC. Con Copeland was born 7/4/1902 in Pelham, Caswell County, NC and died 7/20/1967 in Greenville, Greenville County, SC. They had 4 children: Janice Kay Copeland, Mabel Elizabeth Copeland, Connie Earlene Copeland, Joanne Ruth Copeland.



5) Geneva Margaret Lamb (Dob: 2/14/1915 in Tennelina, Madison County, NC; Dod: 7/23/1984 in Spartanburg, Spartanburg County, SC) Ginnie married Wilford William Reese on 12/30/1933 in Marion, McDowell County, NC. They were my Grandparents. Wilford Reese was born on 5/1/1911 in NC. We don't know where he was actually born. W.W. Reese died on 5/25/1979 in Spartanburg, Spartanburg County, SC. They had 4 children: Eleanor Elaine Reese, Glenn Gilbert Reese Sr., Judith Ann Reese (aka Judy Reese), James Wilford Reese.



6) Noda Vesta Lamb (Dob: 1/22/1919 in Madison County, NC; Dod: 3/15/1919 in Madison County, NC) Little Noda was born and 4 days later her mother died of the Spanish Flu during the Flu Epidemic. Ed named the baby after his wife but little baby girl Noda died in less than 3 months.

Noda Miller Lamb was a great horsewoman and had her own saddlehorse. Mom knew of a story about when her daughter, Pearl, was newly married with a new baby and living in the bottom beside a river. It came up a storm and Noda rode her horse down the mountain to warn Aunt Pearl about flash floods. Sure enough, her house was swept away but she and her baby were saved. The only thing Pearl was able to save was a new Easter bonnet sitting on the kitchen table which she grabbed up as she carried her baby and they ran out the door and climbed the hillside.

Their first biological daughter was Sueda and she died of the Spanish Flu during the Flu Epidemic of 1918-1919. She was only 11 yrs old. Noda was pregnant when Sueda died. She had her baby girl on 1/22/1919 but Noda did not survive the Flu and childbirth. Noda died on 1/26/1919 in Madison County, NC. Three months later, the new baby (named after her mother), died too.

Noda has 2 death certificates. The only difference between the two are her middle name being "Vesta" on one and "Vester" on the other. Neither of her death certificates stated a cause of death. Her death date on the death certificate was 5 months later than what is on her tombstone. I don't know how that happened. She is buried at the Old Antioch Cemetery in Madison County, NC. Was the tombstone added much later? Who did that, her parents or her re-married husband? Or was there simply a mistake from the tombstone maker? Maybe he was making so many tombstones (due to the Flu Epidemic) and simply made a mistake. Or maybe the doctor actually made a mistake on BOTH death certificates. I'm sure with the Fu Epidemic the doctors got behind on paperwork. So I don't know if the death certificates are correct or the tombstone. The first time I visited Noda and Sueda's graves the tombstones were readable but the last time I went they were unreadable and need to be replaced. Mother said the baby was buried in her Noda's arms but that would have meant exhuming Noda's grave. Maybe little Noda was just buried beside her mother and older sister and her infant grave is not marked.





This is a photograph of one of the times we visited Noda's grave. From Left to Right: Lee, Luke with Elaine, Melinda, Mom with Jenny in front of her, Me.









Ed and the surviving girls had a terrible time. According to the family, Ed Lamb was overcome with grief after the death of Sueda, Noda and the baby. He took his family to Laurens, SC where he found a job at the textile mill there called Watts Mill. In the 1920 U.S. Census he is in Laurens with Artie, Fanny, Geneva, Pearl and her first husband (Dewey Roberts) and their little girl, Edna. He also had Cynthia Hickam Miller (his mother in law) living with them.

But they must have come back home because he left his three little girls at the Dora Lynn School and went back to Laurens. Ginnie was only 4 years old. Aunt Artie was 11-12 and Aunt Fannie was 9-10. Aunt Fannie and Aunt Artie thought it was an orphanage and were sure someone would want to adopt little Ginnie because she was so pretty. Every time they heard a car coming to the school, they would run with Ginnie and hide in the fields so no one would separate them. This made a big impression on their young lives. Eventually a neighbor widow woman named Bess Freshour Harkelroad, went to Ed Lamb. She and her family were already in Laurens, SC and lived nearby to Ed Lamb. The Freshours and Harkelroads had been their neighbors for many years in Madison County, NC. So they knew each other pretty far back. She had lost her husband and had small children and needed a husband. She told him the girls would be sent to an orphanage if he didn't provide a family and home for them. She evidently made a bargain with him. If he would marry her and provide for her and her children, she would be a mother to his girls. They came back to the mountains married. They were married in 1921 in Laurens, SC. It turned out to be a bad arrangement. Bess was a terrible stepmother and Ed was harsh, with a violent temper. Bess took advantage of his temper and instigated trouble between Ed and the girls. It sounds like he may have suffered a deep depression after all the deaths and it may have left him bitter, angry. A bad second marriage didn't help. But he had always had a quick temper. So I can't say. I do know it made life at home miserable for the girls. Aunt Fannie and Aunt Artie married young to get away from a bad home life. They soon took little Ginnie with them. Despite marrying so young, all the girls had wonderful marriages.

Ed and his new wife, Bess Fresham Harkelroad (Dob: 5/22/1884 in Hot Springs, Madison County, NC; Dod: 7/31/1958 in Marion, McDowell County, NC) had a son of their own. He was Ed's only boy.

1) Daniel Atkins Lamb (aka Dan Lamb) (Dob: 1/31/1922; Dod: 12/28/1998 in Greer, Greenville County, SC) who married Eula Virginia Finley on 7/20/1940 in Gaffney, Cherokee County, SC. Eula Einley was born 7/28/1924 in Marion, McDowell County, NC. They had 3 children: Wanda Marie Lamb, Linda Doris Lamb, James Edward Lamb (aka Eddie Lamb).



Ed died 2/27/1937 of cerebral hemorrhage due to Hypertension and nephritis. My Mom thinks she remembers that he was up on their roof working when he died while on the roof. He is buried beside Bess at Oakwood Cemetery in Marion, McDowell County, NC. He was only 56 years old.

Ice Sculpture

Brett and two of his cousins with ice sculptures. This is my digital scrapbook page of Brett with the ice sculptures.

A Temper Tantrum

One day Jenny's mother-in-law, Naomi, went with us to go out to lunch and go shopping. Unfortunately it wasn't what Brett wanted to do and he was having a bad day. I had never seen him misbehave this badly so he might not have been feeling well. But when we got to the mall, he had a meltdown... an old fashioned temper tantrum as only 2 yr olds can have. Jenny picked him up to carry him but he stayed rigid, his face red, screaming, his fists balled up. Jenny remained cool as a cucumber. Bless her heart, God gives grace to mothers! Naomi has had 6 children so she was able to take it in stride too. I did OK until on the way home. I was sitting with him in the back seat and I was about in tears myself by then. I was tired and he wouldn't stay in his car seat no matter what we did. I was physically restraining him to keep him in his seat and that's hard to do for an hour drive. But, at the end of the day, all was well. The rest of the week (before and after this day), he was fine. She went back to his baby car seat that restrains him better than his new toddler car seat so we didn't have that problem again. In fact, the next time we went some where and she put him in his old baby car seat, he twisted around a little bit and then said, "MA!". "Yes, Brett, what is it?" "I stuck!" Oh, I feel another scrapbook page coming on!

Here is my digital scrapbook page of his temper tantrum.

Camping Tips


Let me preface this by saying, "I AM NOT A CAMPER!" I have never understood the desire to rough it out in the open. But I realize that there are people who love camping. Some like rough camping and some like "glamping" (glamorous camping).

We had a very large 5th wheel a couple of years ago and I thought it was big enough for me to enjoy camping. Boy, was I wrong! That 35' trailer got smaller and smaller until I could barely stand to look at it much less spend a week in it. I have 2 real suggestions for the companies that build campers and RVs... 1) NO ONE LIKES TO HAVE TO GO TO THE PUBLIC BATHHOUSE! OK? So make the bathrooms big enough and functional enough for the owners to actually USE it! Americans aren't the little people in Gulliver's Travels! We need enough space to actually sit on the commode and a toilet that is big enough to be comfortable and a system that adequately takes care of the waste. We need a shower big enough to get in, strong enough to take our weight without cracking it and big enough to turn around in. I don't think that's asking too much. 2) It should be built with it's purpose in mind... rolling down the road. My husband was constantly having to do repairs on the RV because it was so poorly built and the quality was so bad. Pulling a camper/RV on the road means a lot of swaying, movement and bouncing and it should be built well enough to take it. But even sitting still in storage took it's toll because the extreme temperatures of winter and summer damaged it. The plastic parts would get brittle and split, the awnings would rot, etc. When we used the motors to roll the 3 slide out extensions out, one was always hanging up. My husband is a Maintenance Mgr and Plant Engineer. There is very little that he can't fix and he never figured out what was wrong with that slide-out. So quit selling RVs at exorbitant prices but building low quality crap!

When we got our RV I had it so organized. But, as soon as we got to where we were going, everything seemed to end up a jumble. I never could understand it. Once we started unloading and setting up it became a mish mash. I would look at those people who are campers at heart and their places would look so neat and tidy and for some reason mine didn't feel that way. And we kept finding more things we needed to have. It seems we never had enough stuff. There are awnings, artificial turf rugs, lawn chairs, reclining chairs, lights, grill, coolers, screened tent, tables, etc (some people even have outdoor tent showers now) and that's just for the outside of the RV. Inside I had a large kitchen with double refrigerators, regular sized kitchen sink and a 3 burner stove with oven but you still wanted a grill for cooking outdoors and coolers. I had my little kitchen thoroughly stocked with all the dishes, glasses, utensils, pots and pans that I would need. I had them all safely stored in plastic containers that fit in the cabinets.

Once we got where we were going we realized it was too hot and humid to be outside (that was in the mountains and at the beach) and the bugs were murder. I'm allergic to many, especially fire ants, so I have to be extra careful. We tried a screened room tent but the fire ants came right in and attacked me as I was sitting in my lawn chair. This meant spending a good deal of time in that trailer with the air conditioner on full blast 24/7. I can't take the heat and sun (hot flashes and fair skinned) so I can't stay on the beach for long. After so many hours in that trailer I would get stir crazy and certainly didn't want to cook and clean up. I was ready to get out and go out to eat somewhere.

And, of course, there is the cost. Once you purchase one you have insurance and property taxes on it. You have to outfit it with all the stuff to take with you. Then you have the gas cost to haul it where you are going. Then you have to pay campground fees and during the peak periods those are substantial. Then we had storage fees. We left it at the beach for 1 1/2 years and we had to pay storage fees to the campground for storing it. If we had kept it, we would have needed to pay storage or build one of those large sheds to park it under (which couldn't have been at our house as our lot is too small and there are homeowner's association rules against it). Then there were the constant repairs and maintenance on it.

The only good thing I can say about the experience was we were able to take all our dogs with us when we went some where. I love having my dogs with me but they are extra hassle. On the road we had to make pit stops for them and walking 5 dogs is difficult. Once we were there I would have to take them for walks 3 times a day, one or two at a time. They were in a different routine and environment with lots of different noises so they barked a lot. My special needs boy wouldn't eat. Getting in and out of that little trailer door with the steep steps was a challenge with 5 dogs wanting out at the same time. It's a wonder I didn't fall and hurt myself.

So, all in all, we decided the camping thing wasn't for us. We would prefer to take one of the dogs with us and leave the others behind and have someone in the family come in and take care of them. That way they still have their secure environment and their same routines. My sister, Elaine, and her husband live right behind us and she usually does it for me. And if someone else does it, then she's there in case there is a doggy emergency like if one got sick or injured. She and Melinda are real good in medical emergencies with the dogs. I love having one of my little furry "valiums" with me to pet and love on but it gets to be too much if we take the others too.

We enjoy a temperature controlled, clean hotel room that has maid service. We prefer going out to eat or picking up some picnic things rather than having to cook and clean in the RV. We like having a gym and indoor pool for exercise and then sightseeing and shopping. As I said before, I can't go to the beach and sit all day in the sun. Stan likes to do that maybe one day but then he gets bored too. So I might go with him in the morning and stay a little while and then he can bring me back to the hotel for a shower and resting while he goes back. Everything is so much more pleasant and convenient in a hotel room.

I understand that families with children, people with dogs, and those who love the whole camping experience really enjoy the tents and campers. We didn't camp as a family when I was little and the few times I tent-camped as a teen, I can honestly say I never had a "good" camping experience. There was always something that came up. We froze to death, the tent leaked, I got sick, there were bugs, I was so uncomfortable that I couldn't sleep, we burned up and sweated, etc. But there are obviously people who have had wonderful experiences and love it. That's what makes the world go around!

I found a list of things to have when you go tent camping and thought I would share it with you. Looking at the list, I don't see how anyone can go camping without a UHaul truck but here it is.

The Future

When Luke and Hannah got married, little did they know that in just a few years they would have little Savannah and now, what would life be without her? We must remember this. God knows our future and His plans are for our good. As much as we want to control our lives, we can't because we don't know all the variables that go into our lives. But if we wrest control of our lives out of God's Hands, we run the risk of missing out on His greatest blessings. Trust and faith in God is hard but it's so much better. Doing things His Way and allowing Him to be in charge means our lives will work out to our ultimate good and to the good of those around us.
We've had Savannah now since last January and she is such a presence in our family. We can't imagine life without her. Just a few short months and she's a keeper! There is nothing her parents wouldn't do for her. They are always thinking of her welfare and they love her so much. So does the rest of the extended family! But what if Luke and Hannah had decided they couldn't afford a child right now? No Savannah, and we wouldn't know what we had missed.
As a young woman I decided that I wouldn't have children. I don't know if I made the right decision because I don't know what life would have been like if I had had children. I did pray about it and struggled with that decision. There were many reasons I made the decision. I'm satisfied with my life and think I did the right thing. But I won't know until I meet God face to face. Stan and I have been married 34 years and if we had children they would be adults right now. That's hard to believe. I would more than likely have grandchildren. That's even harder to believe.
I'm not trying to tell anyone whether or not to have children. But I am telling you to trust these life decisions to God. Don't try to control your life. I learned the hard way that doing things my way can make a big mess. Trying to control my life and make my own decisions based on my limited understanding and knowledge and my ability to see the future (which is nil) is a big mistake. And when things come out of the blue, things you didn't plan for, trust that God is in control and can make it a blessing instead of a curse. Accept what God's Hand has provided with gratitude and not whining and complaining and demanding your own way. Some women will have children. Some will not have children. Trying to force ourselves to have (or not have) children means we are trying to control our lives and take on God's job and thrusting Him out of the way. "Get out of the way, God. I know what I'm doing and I don't need You. I can do it myself and get what I want." By humbling yourself and accepting God's Will for your life with a thankful heart is the way to have blessings and peace in your life.
I have a good friend who couldn't have children but she adopted a baby girl. That girl was raised in a wonderful home, is married and has children of her own that are being raised in a loving family. My friend (who is a believer) says she wants to ask God why she couldn't have children when she wanted them so badly and others, who don't want or shouldn't have them, have children. I understand her question and I don't have all the answers but, as an objective person, I have to wonder if she had been able to have biological children would she have been looking to adopt? If she hadn't adopted her daughter, what would have happened to that girl? What kind of life would she have had and how would that have affected the young lady's marriage and children? In her situation, all things worked for good and the results are a loving family. My friend suffered heartache at not being able to bear children but in the long run, look at how God turned it into such a blessing!

Anyway, here is a digital scrapbook page where I tried to express my thoughts. It shows Luke and Hannah when they got married. But then I used some head shots of little Savannah to show what was in their future. On that wedding day, they may have thought vaguely of a family in the future but now, Savannah is here! I used the scripture that is very special to Luke as it's one of his mother's favorite.

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Babysitting

Elaine and Ronnie (Grommie and Pickles) were babysitting Savannah one day last Fall and I got these photos. Here are the digital scrapbook pages I did of grandparents babysitting their granddaughter. By the way, they are sitting in their living room on the couch that was my paternal Grandmother's. I got that couch after my grandparents death and I had it refinished and reupholstered back in 2000. It didn't really go with my current home (we moved here in 2005) so we gave it to Elaine and Ronnie to use in their formal living room.
