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.

Today I start 5 weeks of 7:30 to 4:00 shift! I’m so excited I love this shift it means I have time to do stuff outside before it gets hot and I also feel like I have an evening.

Well this is the week! Sabrina goes to the doctor tomorrow and they will tell her when to report to the hospital. The doctor promised her that she would have the baby before Brian starts his new job and he starts it Monday. So I figure if she doesn’t have the baby by Friday they will put her in and induce her on Friday.

I can’t wait to see this beautiful little girl; and I know here mommy and daddy are on pins and needles waiting to see her. Sabrina has her room all ready; her clothes all washed and her bed all made up. I will go up and stay at the hospital till she has Mikaela then I am going over to the apartment and going to pick up and straighten up for her so that when they get home it’s all swept and dusted and clean sheets on the bed.

Then I’ll come home and gather up Jake and the other stuff I need and head back up since Brian’s starting the new job he’s not going to be able to be off. I’m getting so excited it’s like I have a little bouncy ball inside it’s almost impossible to sit still.

I have everything done at my house I will want to run the sweeper and dust one last time and I will need to drop a feeder to the fish. I probably should pick up another feeder just in case I need to have someone drop another one in. I also need to put Bandit’s food in a sealed container so that someone can stop and feed him. Maeghan has agreed to stop and feed and water him every night. Mom keeps fresh water out on her porch for him too so he will be fine.

I need a couple of zip lock bags of food for Jake but I’m not worried about forgetting that since I can pick up a bag of food for him at Sam’s and will need to sometime while I’m up there.

I also need to get my clothes packed…. I guess I have more to do then I realized. But, none of it will take very long. It’s mostly just gathering stuff up; but I think I’ll make up a list and do a bunch of it tonight so that it’s done.

Well I better close for now! I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe weekend.

Andie hurry up and finish HP so we can chat about it! Love ya gal!

Hugs and Prayers,

I knew I wouldn't have time to read the entire book before the kids at the library revealed everything to me....so I read the last few chapters and I pretty much know what happens. I will have to go back and read the rest of it now! Good luck to Sabrina and Brian this week!
