Did you know?

I'm madly in love with Bryan Adam's music. And did you know, HE HAS A NEW SONG??????

Yep and a new album that comes out soon. I love music. Music can say so much. So when I read the words of his new song my heart melted. Here you go and if you want to hear the song you can listen on the side of this blog.

I Thought I'd Seen everything
adams/kennedy/lange ©2008
i like the way we are - i love what we've become
when i'm in your arms - i know i've found the one
i love your kiss me mouth - and your static touch
its just the way you are - that makes me feel so much

no one could ever know - what we're like alone
rollin' round like rain - we're a midnight storm
like a river rising - i feel it thru your skin
when we're together - i never want it to end

i thought i'd seen everything - til i saw you
i thought i'd been everywhere - til i'd been with you
i thought that everyone knew what i knew
i thought i'd seen everything - til i saw you

i like the way we are - like a raging fire
burning up the night, burning with desire
you're such a sweet temptation - you know i can't resist
electricity, hey every time we kiss

President's day

On President's day we all had the day off. David wanted to work on my parents basement (It's our gift to my dad for Christmas- David is completely their basement, which mean's dry wall and a new bathroom).

I decided to take the boys for a fun day to the aquarium. My parents joined us and it was a lot of fun.

How tall are you compared to a 6 gill shark???

And my favorite part of the aquarium? this glass fish enclosure that is above your head. I could just stand under it and enjoy the fish for the longest time. It is so great.

Other stuff I did in the last two weeks???

On Saturday some girls went out and celebrated Katrina's birthday, it was SOOOOOOO much fun and I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. Then last night I met up with Katrina and Theresa to celebrate Theresa's birthday and it was a BIG one so we made it extra special. I didn't pull my camera out so you will have to check their blogs for the photos.

Also I watched Gabe again. that baby is amazing and my brother is blessed to have such a good baby - and he is such a good dad, I am so proud of him!

Wordful Wednesday

Instead of “Wordless Wednesday” today is “Wordful Wednesday” (I know that isn’t a word). I have been pondering the following for days & I hope it makes you ponder a little too.

Last Saturday I was asked, “What did you thank God for this week”. For me that was somewhat easy, other than the obvious things (family, home and food) I answered Mount Rainer as the sun comes up.
On Monday I was listening to a sermon online and in the sermon the Pastor asked “Do you thank God for EVERY little thing?” Did you thank God for getting up this morning? Did you thank God that you knees work? Did you not just thank God for your food, but for the fact that you can lift the spoon to your mouth, or that your mouth can chew it up. Did you thank God that your car started, or that you had a red light to ponder something, maybe Him for just an extra moment.

Now at first I was thinking, yes I thank God for everything always, but then I thought- do I mean it, or am I just rehearsing the same thankfulness that I say every day?

So this morning when I got out of bed and my morning stiffness didn’t last more than a few steps I praised the Lord that my body is beginning to take to these meds. I then thanked God that my lights & water worked in my house. I continued to find things all the way to work and still while I am at work to praise Him for and REALLY mean it. I even had a moment where I thanked Him for the diagnosis of Lupus & Fibro, tears welled up in my eyes, but I was in a joyous, thankful heart for such an amazing answer to my prayers.

So I challenge you today, to find those small things we take for granted and stop to praise Him for He is the author and creator of our faith. Feel free to post comments on what you did today to praise Him for your day- I would love to hear them!

PS- I hope to post more stuff to my blog soon! I have been so tired latey and the blog took a hit. I am feeling refreshed and ready to start posting! Praise the Lord!!!!!

My Friend, Boot

I want you to meet my new friend. His name is Boot, I know it's not very creative, but I can't think of another name for him.

I first met Boot last July when dealing with my ankle pain. Boot has been a good friend, he has supported me through the pain and stiffness of a bad ankle. And, at the end of July Boot was retired to the closet and Boot was there alone for those several months.

Well last week I had to go in search of Boot. I called out for my dear friend in desparation. You see, two weeks ago something snapped in my ankle. I didn't think anything of it until late the next day I wasn't able to bear any weight on my ankle so the doctor told me to find my friend the Boot.

So here I am with Boot, back in my life, supporting a bad ankle. Boot was saddened on Tuesday when my doctor stated that I should only need to have him around for one more week. And if my ankle didn't get better we should do another MRI to see if a piece hasn't broken off and it isn't floating around in there. If that's the case than it's another surgery. Both Doc and I agreed that another surgery would be a bad thing.

So to my friend-Boot- you maybe around for a lot longer than next week. You may become a lifelong friend.

Wordless Wednesday

Ok, so I am going to start a new segment on the blog. "Wordless Wednesday" Each wednesday I am going to post a photo. It might be funny, it might be interesting or it might be beautiful. I'm not going to post any words with it just a photo. So today I didn't get to creative with the photo, it's a repost, but I hope you enjoy it.

My weekend

During my quest to figure out why I can't post video from my camera to online I somehow deleted 1/2 of my weekend photos!!!!!

On Saturday I babysat Gabe (my nephew) for the day. Here are some moments that I will get in trouble for.
One of the missing photos is of him trying his first piece of chocolate... a cadberry egg. This pic is from my cell phone- so it isn't good quality.

then I let him play with my mom's laptop- sorry that one got deleted along with Josiah playing on the laptop.

Then we took him to lunch for his first taste of other things.

French fries?

And then there was the Wendy's frosty. I gave him a little taste and he was hooked. Everytime I brought the spoon to my own mouth he followed with his wide open and wasn't happy when I didn't share... sorry no photos of the frosty either.

We had such a good time. He has learned to kiss and coo. He has such a great personallity.

Those of you that know me really well know that I passionatley hate forwarded emails. I don't even read them. I don't have time and personally the chain letters and the if you do "a" you will get "b" are a hoax... Yes, even the ones that claim Bill Gates will give everyone on this email a $1.00. So when someone sent me this link I hestitated- until I saw it was posted on ESPN. Now instead of forwarding this out and starting one of those awful forwards myself I thought I would share it with all of you and HOPE that you would take 10 minutes to send this boy a valentine.

The short story is this. It's a 3 year old boy with a rare form of cancer and they want everyone to send him valentine's to get the word out. How can you not? If you don't have time to read the whole store scroll to the bottom for his PO Box address and send some love!!! I would love to hear if you did this- or if I'm just wasting my time :-).

No Posts?!?!?

Ok, so the threatening emails can stop... I am posting a new post. Please understand that I haven't been feeling very well over the last few weeks and the meds I'm on for my lupus have really started to take their toll on me. So here you go an update....

Almost two weeks ago we got snow! it was fun, Josiah and I went out for a little while to play in it. We then spent the rest of the day inside, I worked on the quilt.... and the boys enjoyed just being home. It was a nice day.

I love the snow! I know to several of you this is just a dusting of snow, but not to us this is plently and we love it. The best part- it was gone the next day so life could pick back up.
