What happened to Sindi? This #Oklahoma woman DIED in the Oklahoma County Jail on Sunday. Don’t call her a prostitute. Call her Beloved Daughter, Mother, Friend. Jailed on a failure to appear in court she is now gone. I didn’t know her. I have no idea how she died. I know one thing, however; she shouldn’t be dead. In 2012, she got a tattoo of a cross on her back with the word STRONGER. She posted a picture of herself sporting the new tattoo at the graveside of someone she loved. She posted this Bible verse: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” @misstripleem
🎄❤️🎄 I took some pictures of Willow “Willy” Wareham today. I’m blessed to be her grandma! 🎄❤️🎄
Breakfast with my son. #mintywho #mintywhohotchocolate ❤️💚 @ihop #ihop
The colored lights along this stretch of #OKC are especially grand when it rains. Add Christmas lights, and its all magic for me.
Pink Christmas Lights made me make a U-ie and go back and take this picture for all of you. 💕 #pinkchristmas #pinklights #photooftheday #pinkbungalow #bungalow #OKC #405
Now that I’m a grandma, I’m leaving comments like TookyPooky on pictures @jueyjames posts of Willow on FB and then loving my own comment. 😍
He will save you! From all that threatens to pull you under. I know this because He rescued me! ✝️❤️
My sister’s beautiful, hopeful handwriting and gifts. She is amazing. ❤️🎄
I wonder what all she meant when she wrote “withdrawal from the world’s way of life.” #saintbridget #catholicsaints #faithblogger
I finally got to see Willow today. I love you baby girl. 🥰
For years, God put Robert’s missing brother on my heart and for years I searched for him and could not find him, until one day, I did. He was dying, really, living in horrible conditions in Stockton. He came to live with us until we could get him set up with services. DHS said it would be two years until an apartment became available, but within days of applying, he was assigned an affordable place in Midtown. Last night, Guy stopped by and said he loved his quiet apartment with the best view in the whole humble complex. He’s close to St Joseph’s, and the new streetcar is right outside his doorway. Swipe to see what Guy carries in his pocket everywhere he goes. #Achumawi #pitrivertribe #illmawi #achomawi // His special hat was made by an elder woman in his Native America tribe.
Princess Awesome. 😍
And y’all thought I was annoying posting pictures of my kids. 😂 Look at this sugar. 🍭 #GrandmaJennifer #NannyJenny Juliette just sent me this. I’m still sick and can’t see this little pumpkin 🎃
My daughter and granddaughter!!! My beautiful loves. 🥰@jueyjames
The idea that there is no intelligent designer, no creator, no God, and still there is the magic of a pomegranate is ridiculous. // By the way, my late mother-in-law gave my late mother this beautiful cutting board: Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart. They died nine days apart, and they left me with this most important prayer for every mother, daughter, woman, humankind. ❤️🙏 #Faith #Jesus #pomegranate
She brought joy to people today! That’s what it’s all about, friends! We want to celebrate life. #batontwirling #stockyardscity #stockyardscityok #christmasparade #OKC #Oklahoma #Stockyards #cowboychristmas #batontwirler
My mother was a sign painter and so was her father. They were both so talented and painted Christmas trees and santas and snowmen in windows. She always helped us make posters growing up - every time we ran for student council or needed to promote something. I loved her posters for world missions best of all. For decades she shook glitter - METALLIC JEWELS, NON-TARNISHING - from this black can. It held so much magic for me and my sisters and my brother. This “finest aluminum glitter” made us feel rich. The glitter outlived her. Sometimes, I look at a junk piece of furniture and I say, “That piece of junk outlived my mother.” What the hell kind of world am I living in anyway? But, after saying this and things like it to myself for the last 11 months, I finally realized this simple thing: We die because we are alive. To meet age and death is to have lived. I would not rather be a chair. On Saturday, Bridgy will March in a Christmas parade. I wish my mom was here to make one more sign. But, I’m here, and I have her can of glitter. Just junk to someone else, but it means the world to me. Magically, we never ran out. Her love never ran out even when her heartbeats did. It went on and on and on and on. And goes on forever. I hope I can be more like her in that way.
My first grandbaby!! Willow Martin Wareham, named for my late mother, Barbara Martin Elliott. Thank you Juliette and Justin for bringing this beautiful child into our lives. @jueyjames
Tomorrow I will hold my first grandbaby. I think it’s going to be the best day of my life.
Sneak peek at Bridgy’s Santa’s Helper costume for Saturday’s parade in #OKC. It’s her first time to march in a parade. 🤶🏻🎄
