A Visitor

We enjoyed a weekend of our grandson.
He kept us all busy.

 The weather was nice.
So we Christmas'ed the house.

We were happy to have a little helper.

Although, not a lot of help here.

 Enjoying some movie time.

Ready to go home.

And for the record, he was not the only one to come home for a turkey dinner,
just the cutest.

What a Difference a Week Makes

I have two words for the weather this week.

Cold    Windy

A week ago, I thought these little flowers would make it to Thanksgiving.

I guess Mother Nature had a different idea.

We did get a snowday out of it.
Thanks to the freezing rain.
I can't believe I just said that.

We are having a beautiful fall.
I am enjoying it very much.

I have a question.
I am working with a 5 year old who is writing
writing up-side-down and backwards.
I know that backwards is totally age appropriate, 
however, the up-side-down thing????
It is fascinating.
If you have ever worked with any one with this issue, 
would you please contact me.
I ask everyone I know that works with children.

Thinking about another Life

So my life the last couple of weeks has been overflowing with people dying.
We had a co-worker, who has struggled with depression for many years,
take her own life.
We had a child at the middle school take his own life.
Then we had a 9 year old girl die from being kicked in the head by a horse.
Then, to my greatest surprise, 
a very dear friend of mine, lost her daughter.

I have prepared food,
Sent cards,
Held hands and cried with people,
Covered for people so they could attend funerals,
Attended a funeral.

This is what I know.
God lives and he loves us.
And that when our hearts get so heavy
that it hurts to breath,
That Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World,
will carry our sorrows.

We do not know how long we get to live on this earth,
but I like to think we will be happy when we leave it...


and that there will be a beach there.
Love you All
