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.

Good morning all! Yesterday was all day training in Delaware, OH we left at 5:30 in the morning and didn’t get home till after 5:30 last night. So made for a really long day. But, learned a lot and have a lot of information about the new programs I’m managing.

I also go a call from my Daughter in Law, Jenna; Wes and Jenna are having a little girl, her name will be Londyn Olivia; I think it’s so pretty. I would like to see them make her Londyn Olivia Jane Hollon, that way she would carry on the Jane tradition for another generation we can trace it to every generation since the 1600’s and at least once every other generation back as far as the 1500’s! So a lot of years but I understand, and want what they want.

I so hope they get a place of their own so that I can spend at least a day or two with them shortly after the baby is born. I so want to hold this little one in my arms I just ache with wanting to hold her. My first grandbaby, who would have thought it, would be my youngest first.

Jenna sounds so happy and glad, I was thinking blue just because I like having a boy first but as long as the baby is healthy I will be in heaven! I know Wes is the same just praying for healthy but I bet secretly he was hoping for a boy, not sure but just a hunch.

On a very very sad note once again the Albany sadness in the school continues. A little boy well young man actually shot himself yesterday. This is the son of a friend of mine that I grew up with and Wes and his daughter are best friends. I just feel so awful I don’t know how they are dealing with it. I just want to sit and cry. The little boy had a handicap and I guess he just couldn’t live with it, so sad! I know the family is totally devastated. So please say an extra prayer for the family and the Alexander school district we have not made it one year in the last 6 to 8 without a death from something! It’s so sad so very very sad!
