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."

"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.

Thank you dear lord for special friends and for the children that grew up in my house that have become my family in love; I am truly blessed.

Mel there is everything from tiny tiny clothes in the box to 18 months. I have all of it washed up and ready to go for her. I also gathered up my gift for the shower and I ended up with 3 full bags of stuff. I’m terrible every time I go to the store I pick up a little something. It was really great seeing your dad on Saturday, I truly miss spending time with your mom and dad they are such wonderful people…and most of all I miss you.

I need to talk to Jerod today and find out if he’s staying with me this week. I can’t believe summer qtr is here already. It seems like time moves so fast.

Bandit was waiting at the back door for me this morning expecting to have his belly filled. He already knows that I feed him……every morning and every night. He is so ugly he’s cute I promise to get at least a snap shoot of him tonight. He has discovered that mom’s porch swing is a nice place to take an afternoon nap. He was up there last night when I went up to visit with mom. There he was all stretched out between mom and Mary Jo enjoying the evening breeze.

I hope everyone has a wonderful, joyful day. Michelle I hope and pray that Madelyn gets over this new bout of ear infections.

Love ya all,


PS!Wooohooo talked to Jerod he’s spending tonight with me. We will have steak and potatoes for dinner. Can’t wait to spend some quality time with my oldest!

I love having Jerod in I hope that Erin gets to spend some time down this summer also. I just love that girl to death. She’s such a wonderful person, I am looking forward to meeting her family.

Won’t go on right now just wanted to add the post script! Oh and I’m still making a decision about pressing charges.

I am glad there is a wide variety of clothing. That way there will be at least something in each size for her to start with. :)
