A Little Bit of Family Time...

...does the soul some good!




Does this look like an advertisement?







And then after we arrived back home...Megan and Silas were waiting for us!




I was able to see ALL of my children and



All of my grandchildren this past Sunday.



I feel blessed!

What am I doing here?

My sister shared this quote with me...It's good stuff.

It was only a kindly word,
And a word that was lightly spoken,
Yet not in vain, for it stilled the pain
Of a heart that was nearly broken. – Anon.





I have a BIG test tomorrow...and here I am on my blog...:O) Just a short break and I'll get back to studying.





Last weekend was better...Silas was down for the weekend...

Silas took this photo...it's a favorite!

Another "bee in my bonnet"...or lily


Struck me as a simple but profound statement. I just had to share.

After reading that article I noticed a news video to the side that was titled...

"Dad sells naming rights to unborn baby for $100 in gas money"

And, well..."it is what it is"...good grief!

100th Post

I would have enjoyed posting 100 photos that I have taken...or the 100 people who have posted something on my heart...be it good or bad...however, I am pressed for time...So...
I remember when Ariel was in Kindergarten and they celebrated the "100th day of school"...Do the elementary schools still do that, Jen and Jan? Each child was to bring in 100 of something...instead of sending Ariel with a bag of 100 buttons, I sewed them on a white t-shirt. Do you remember that Ariel? 100 buttons...
I remember being in first grade...not too, too long ago and dreading when the teacher asked me to count to 100. It always took way too long. I truly hated the daily assignment of writing to 100 on the beginner's paper.EVERY morning we had to write to 100 with the ones lined up to the tens lined up. I think I have hated busy work every since.
Nowadays we have 100 calorie packs...aw, the magic number for restrained snacking.

And so, to celebrate my 100th post...which would have happened long before now if I weren't so incredibly busy...cause I absolutely love to blog, I am posting some subjects that are worth looking through...for about 100 minutes (probably the average time I used to get stuck on the Internet when I logged on to check my mail). *It's no different than stepping into Walmart to pick up something you really need and coming out with...$100.00 worth of stuff. In all actuality...I probably spend 100 minutes getting this post together!
First...a bit of information regarding the number 100:
Then for your perusal:
