My world changed.  My reason to begin with was to document our little family unit as we did life together.  NEVER did I IMAGINE that I WOULD MEET SUCH AMAZING WOMEN,   READ STORIES and POSTS and then had to read them again , know NAMES of  YOUR family members  AND have even gotten to meet some of you face to face. INCREDIBLE…
I love that this BLOG is MINE. 
MY THOUGHTS, MY WORDS, my hopes and dreams ….AND above all
I love the written word (off on one of my many rabbit trails….but if you happened to see the TODAY show today …Jenna Bush H interviewing her grandparents and sharing their love letters…Politics aside, you had to be moved. I am so glad that I did not miss it.
ON THE “how to” SIDE, I still know next to nothing!
Help is needed in the technical department.
One thing I have learned is we all have the same hurts, same dreams, same battles….we are all so much more alike than different.  For some reason that is comforting to me.
Stay with me…the winners of the books are coming…Parker is Mr. Math and getting the winners now..
Today was not exactly the normal Valentines date. When you have been married 38 years, the day you celebrate is flexible.
I did wake up to flowers and a gift certificate for a long massage..I also got a sick little man dropped off that has been in my lap all day. He has fever, his belly hurts (his words), has a good little cough and feels totally YUK!
   Pitiful Jack-1
This is his sad face and this is how he has looked all day…yes I let him put stickers on the pillows.
Amanda had her first of two BIG tests tonight so we knew she had to study…and we know how to hold a sick boy….
A few snapshots from Greg's birthday..

Sweet Grayson…..and
Amanda and the Two Little's
 Amanda and Jack
THE WINNERS OF Ree Drummonds love story…..and it’s a real love story ARE

I'm so sorry you have a sick one. Our Shelby plus her mommy and daddy had the flue 2 weeks ago. I hate for my babies to be sick.

Blogging is a great way to leave a legacy for our children and grandchildren. I love the quiet time with just me and the computer expressing what's in my heart. Congratulations on 2 years, keep on writing.
