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

I’m posting this tonight since I’ll be on the road most of tomorrow.

I want to say congratulations to my friend Christie! She just took over a place on our LPS Design Team. I hope that you enjoy your time with us and have fun with the kits.

I also would ask that everyone say a prayer for my friend Nancy. She is going to have to undergo bypass surgery sometime in the next month. Se is such a strong lady and I’m sure she will do fine but it never hurts to have lots of hugs and prayers from a lot of people.

I’ve been working on a mini brag book for me to carry to work for Mikaela. And I am working on a little mini album for Michelle, Sabrina’s sister in law; she saw the little mini book I made for Brian and asked if I could do one for McKenna. So I should have those posted in a few days. I think I’ll take the mini book and some paper to Sabrina’s next week and work on it in the evenings. Sabrina has a Cord Camera super store next door, so to give the family some time by themselves I may run over there a couple of nights and work on the mini album. It will get me my scrap booking fix and give them family time.

It is so nice to be posting openly on the board again. We have had some unknown people on the board and it’s been a matter of being very careful what we post. Tonight the girls were so open and loving…of course they always are but even more so tonight. LPS is one of those places where you are with family. Everyone is loving and caring and we all take care of each other; tonight I talked to Vickie for ½ hour on the phone and we just shared. I’m planning on making the trip to KY in September to see her and Nancy and go to a crop with them. And then in May all of the LPS family will be getting together in KY again.

I just wish we all lived a little closer it’s so hard when you are spread out so much. It is even harder when one of our group needs love and support. It would be great if we could help each other in the day to day things. Just like every month when Shellye mails hundreds of kits out without any help. And with Nancy going through the medical things and the girls that are all going back to work after new babies! It would just be so nice to give a helping hand on a daily basis!

Ok I’m going to get off of here….Love and hugs!!!!

God Bless,

Jane
