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.

Boy the weekends fly by! I’m taking care of the horses for Stacia right now. Cutie was at the fence growling at me this morning telling me to hurry up. She was down last night also but at least she didn’t chew me out for being late. I had no doubt that she was angry and I was on time it wasn’t even 7:00 a.m. yet. Oh well she’s funny after I fed her and she had her belly full she came over and wanted her head rubbed and wouldn’t leave me alone until I rub it for her. She is a beautiful horse and is so funny, I think I’ve spoiled her just a little she knows I always take time to spend with her. The cats were in fine form also, one of the black cats was perched up on the banister and was talking to me and Bro decided it was time to come outside and wound around my feet.

I’m still amazed that my Granddaughter will be her so soon! I really can’t wait to hold her. Miss Mikaela Jane Ennis! I bet she will be so smart, with a mom a lawyer and her dad a CPA how can she help but be.

Speaking of cats Bandit has settled right in I used him on the challenge layout last night. We had to make our own background paper using card stock. So I used a combination of card stock and chalk it turned out ok not crazy about it but its ok. I wish now that I’d left the bottom of the layout just chalked. It would have looked so much better.

Jerod will be down tonight, I want to get some pictures of him with Bandit and call it my two Scrappers a play on words. Erin said Jerod is starting to understand his Physics class so I know that is a relief for both of them. He is so close to finishing school. I can’t believe that by this time next yr he will have graduated. I managed to get 2 kids as college graduates! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I keep thinking about going back but I just don’t have the energy any more. I would love to get a degree if Fine Arts with photography major. I seem to have a little bit of a knack for portrait photography. I need to talk to Erin and Jerod and see if they will let me take some pictures of them when I go up to stay with Sabrina…that way I can get out of the house one evening and let Brian and Sabrina have some time alone and I can get some great pictures. There is an awesome park up by the kids that I would love to do a shoot in and there is also a covered bridge over in Canal Winchester.

Well I will close for now! I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend. Take care and God Bless,

Love to all,
