A Note to my kiddos

First let me say I miss you guys SO MUCH!!

You will be happy to know that I haven't cried in 2 days.

Don't laugh, that is a huge accomplishment.

I hope you are having a lot of fun with Grandmommy and Grandad.

Have fun at Vacation Bible School this week -- soak up all the Jesus you can - and be sure to call me as soon as it is over everyday so you can tell me all about it.

love you bunches

It's A New Day

entry for Create My Keepsakes - Last Scrapper Standing Challenge - FUN!

this layout represents the trials our family faced this past year

-- I found great comfort in the song that I quoted lyrics from -- Thanks for looking :)

Journaling Reads: Photo taken 5-07 Journaling 6/08 This past year was the roughest one we have faced together. My Surgery and Cancer - You getting an new promotion and relocating in the middle of my treatment. My Radiation -- Trying to sell our house. Moving in with friends in Oklahoma just so we no longer had to be over 500 miles apart. Moving into a tiny apartment. Struggling to make two house payments - Body Scans - Bloodwork - follow up Dr. appointments.

But we made it through it all and we are stronger than ever.

[Song lyrics] "the world keeps spinning round - yesterday's gone and today is waiting on you to show your face. It might not be the prettiest thing that you'll ever see. But it's a new day. And it might not look like a beautiful sunrise but it's a new day.... Me and You in love and everythings alright. Standing in the rain w/ no where to go. Laughing and we're spinning and I hope that you REMEMBER this day for the rest of your live. ME & YOU in LOVE - everythings gonna be alright. And it just might be the prettiest thing that you'll ever see. It's A NEW DAY."

[robbie seay band]

puppy love

So Gracie's puppies are 6 weeks old -- you know what that means -- time to find them new homes. :(

I must admit, if we weren't currently in an apartment

(you don't know anyone who wants to buy a house in houston do ya?)

we would have kept at least one of them.

So here is some puppy cuteness to brighten your day!
