Nanna's Biography

Bio Continued

Raymond, August 4, 1938

Before the day is over I want to jot down a line or two. This day has been a little sad for me. I have thought of my oldest daughter more because it is her 64th birthday. It is 36 years since we parted. That seems a long time to be away from each other. But I have so many things to be thankful for. My health is not so good, but I am not complaining. I am able to care for myself to some extent, but I cannot live alone or do any housework. I have my daughter to do it for me, for which I am very thankful. It is a great blessing to me for I am not able to do things that have work attached to it. I can still knit, piece guilt blocks and embroider. In the last six years I have pieced 30 sets of quilt blocks, embroidered ten pair of pillow cases, three dresser scarfs, two table covers, besides knitting mitts, socks and sweaters. I am in my eighty-fourth year and I cannot expect to be entirely well in this life. There are very few of the old people left that came here when Raymond was first settled. There was one dear old friend, Mrs. Hicks, passed away just a day or so ago, and will be laid to rest from her sorrow and suffering today. It is a little cooler today than for some weeks past. I have lived out-of-doors in the shade most of the summer. I am so thankful for my little humble home, with some of my children around me, and one daughter with me. They come to see me often which makes me very happy and appreciative of their kindness. Without them life would be rather dull. I hardly ever leave the house and I am happy to have my children and friends call to see me often, for I feel like my time here will not be very long. I try to make the best use of the time allotted to me. We are all in his watchful care, and if we put our trust in Him all will be well with us.

September 11, 1938

It is over a month since I wrote last on my biography. I am anxious to finish it while I am able. It is getting quite hard for me to write, but still I keep on trying for I have children who love to hear from me. I am sitting out of doors enjoying the sunshine, flowers and trees that our Heavenly Father has placed here for our pleasure and enjoyment, I thank Him for my home in the goodly land with kindred and friends to comfort and bless me in my declining years. I am thankful for my good eyesight, for I spend many hours reading and doing handwork. My blessings are too numerous too mention. I pray day by day that the Lord will give me strength to live worthily so that when the time comes for me to leave this sphere of action it can be said to me, "Well done thou good and faithful servant. Enter into that rest which is prepared for the faithful."
