I had a first with my daughter tonight, we sat down and prayed together. Well maybe not a first but the first time since she has gotten older.

We prayed together because her brother and sister have a pretty heavy day tomorrow, they go to pick out their Father's headstone. We have been divorced for many years, and I know it isn't my job to go but a little part of me just wants to be there for them to just be there. Hard to let your kids do this type of thing by themselves. I fight my own head  over how much to help them, and tread between offering and trying to let them come to me if they need help. So today, my youngest and I prayed for them.

We also prayed for my husband, who is pretty awesome, and deserves a break. My wish was for him to be happy in a new job.

We also talked about that we can pray to find a way, but never things for yourself. My belief is prayers for others get double duty attention or something I guess. In my head they do!

I also believe that everyone deserves to have their own beliefs.

Holding Thy Tongue

You know how it is when you get good news you want to shout to the world but you cannot do it yet due to .... well it isn't a for sure things just an amazing thing. Yet again you are scared to say anything for fear of jinxing it?

Yea, me neither........

Tomorrow is a big day for me at the craft sale. I am hoping to get some things sold, just not the amount of time I thought I would have to do things and I am thinking I really have to hone in on one thing for a bit and not be so diversified LOL But I like doing it! OOOO what to do.

I should be in bed but, well I have to drag a 70+ pound dog out of the bed to get to my spot, since my husband is curled up with him in bed. That will teach me to go to bed extra late...

So, got anything you want to tell me but shouldn't?

Cross Roads and Developing!

We hit a major cross roads in our home, a whole lot of changes are happening. I was stuck with should I write about it here or just keep it light? Well my choice is, Xroads happen :) Move forward, when you get down and out no matter what the reason, others have it worse. Watch a few vids on youtube and you will realize that! Helped my husband and I tremendously!


I LOVE PICTURES, I love photography, I love capturing a moment so it will never be forgotten! One of the BEST vids I have found is here. WWII film rolls developed! I mean how awesome is that! What a job, recapturing lost memories.

Also, I love wimp! Such good stories.

Remember to keep on truckin' down that road!

Happy Moments

With life you have to take the time to smell the roses, and capture those little moments.

Our youngest child is now a young teen, I sat in on her bed tonight helping her with her  homework as she sat at her desk writing out some things we just talked about. I just sat there watching her, her face so intent on writing, back so straight, she was so grown up. You get teary thinking about that little girl with the cute little pony tails that made her look like little Cindy Lou Who, then seeing the beautiful young lady she is turning into.

Take time to enjoy those little moments, they bring such joy to a day.

I have always been very fond of animals. I think that people who rescue them are amazing people. Facebook has opened my eyes more towards rescue's and how they work. Watching the video's from there and other online area's can break your heart, forever change you as a person. There are some pictures and video's that I just cannot forget, some left me so shattered after seeing the pictures I had to stay away from any sites regarding it. I wonder if rescuers have to take breaks themselves?

My sister volunteered for Golden Retrievers Rescue, she finally fell in love with a little blind dog and kept her so her fostering has been limited with how much care that precious little girl takes. She is also dwarfed so she is a tiny thing, she looks like she is still just a puppy.

Hope for Paws

I have many directions in which I find I want to go with my blog and then realized some days you just sit and stare at the computer wondering where to start, or what to start writing. The other day I found an awesome page that tickled my fancy! It is a page where you fill in some "nouns" and it kicks out a few topics you can choose from based upon your nouns. Pretty cool when you are feeling pretty brain dead!

I put in photograph, tree and camera and it kicked out the following:

  1. The Worst Advice We've Ever Heard About Photograph
  2. What Will Camera Be Like In 100 Years
  3. Think You're Cut Out For Doing Tree? Take This Quiz
  4. The Ultimate Cheat Sheet On Photograph
  5. How To Solve The Biggest Problems With Camera

I have many interests so this type of generator can help me move forward with my thought process, based upon what I am feeling for the day. However I do not think anyone is cut out for "doing tree"

Any of you have a favorite site that helps you get your creative juices flowing?

 PS Have I mentioned I love photography? Our Sunset tonight
