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.

Still a little stiff and sore from all the scrubbing but feeling better. I got the trimming done outside and the stuff from Sam's Club put away. I've got a load of clothes in the washer and one in the dryer.

I got a cute picture of bandit this morning I'll try to get it posted this weekend some time. Also a picture of Mikaela's cabbage patch doll.

Oh and still no new baby. I feel so awful for Sabrina she is really miserable and the baby is so low that she feels like she has constant pressure I'm sure all of you ladies that read my blog can remember those feelings:)

I went out to lunch with a friend today. Why do we put off doing things like this? We had so much fun! We laughed and laughed and laughed even though we talk on the phone or the computer at least once a week seeing each other face to face is so much fun. We made arrangements to try to get together at least once a month now!

I'm going to get off of here in a few minutes there are a couple of layouts I want to fiddle around with and I have some new paper to play with. My DT kit should be here on Monday or Tuesday. I only have 6 more months of DT then it's time for me to step down. The time has went so quickly, I've decided it's time for some new blood on the team. I'll stay on as mom if Shellye would like me too. I will stay with LPS for as long as there is an LPS the girls there are family. The love and support that everyone shows each other is so awesome! There is no infighting or one up manship that you see so many places these days. We truly are sister! I know some people can't understand that but it's the greatest group.

I want to say a special hello to Michelle's friend Terri! And tell her congrats that her daughters have grown into such awesome ladies. Michelle has told me about your girls; and to think we both have lawyers :)

And I'll leave you with this a friend had it on her blog and it uplifted me so much I'm sure she won't mind me lifting it:) Thanks Dee

The song is called Hallelujah, but she knows it better as Your Love Is Amazing or Your Love Makes Me Sing. The first verse and chorus go like this:

Your love is amazing, steady and unchanging. Your love is a mountain, firm beneath my feet.
Your love is a mystery, how You gently lift me. When I am surrounded Your love carries me.

(chorus) Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Your love makes me sing. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Your love makes me sing.

Love and hugs,

Hey dear friend! Terry will like your comment to her. I keep trying to talk her into starting a blog but she won't. I am glad you had a great lunch with your friend today. I am stuck at work.
