God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Well I took mom to Red Lobster for dinner today and picked up the tab for all of our dinners :( OUCH! But, it was nice having the whole family together. Mom had one crying jag but that was ok. She misses dad really badly. Her birthday/anniversary is always hard on her. I think that's the problem with getting married on your birthday. It's bitter sweet.

But, guess what dummy me did! I forgot to take a camera with me :(
