daily blessings

A blog created to show how much I am blessed each day.

Monday, October 06, 2008


  Our grandmother was a Western Carolina University cheerleader...  a few years ago (????) and she has us in training  for the 2025 cheerleading squad.  Our grandmother met our grandfather right here on this very campus and now he's a very big man on campus, with a very important job... some kind of vice chancellor or something.  We think his official title is Mr. Catamount.  Our Auntie Nancy went to college here too and met her handsome hubby at WCU.  Our other Auntie in Michigan, met her Army General hubby right here, while she was a cheerleader for the catamounts.  Our mom grew up here and decided to venture out, going to Meredith College and then on to Duke University for seminary but...  her heart was always right here in catamount country.  AND last but not least... our daddy went to school here and  he's currently working on his masters at WCU.  Now, you can see clearly; why this is such a special University to us, why we are sitting in the end zone during the 2008 homecoming game and why we are so adorably dressed in the purple and gold cheerleading outfits!  What a blessing it is to be in CULLOWHEE, NC!  GO CATS!

We had so much fun at the ballgame. We liked the band. We thought everyone was clapping for us. Go Cats! Love, Ella and Mattie

Sally~ This is such a special time in your lives... enjoy every precious moment!

Ella and Mattie~ They were clapping for you! Your photo reminds me of one that pictured your mom, Ben and Katherine in their WCU cheerleading outfits. I will have to round it up and try to do a post at some point. Tomorrow is Wednesday... YEAH! My day with you 2- I can't wait!

Thanks Dawn~ we do have close connections and its great that my sister and BIL actually live there so we can go back to visit (about a 2 hour drive). That's a blessing indeed!

Linda~ A great family tradition, on the most beautiful campus in the mountains of western North Carolina. Especially this time of year when the leaves change colors. Thanks for stopping by.
