Christmas Present... It was the day after Christmas at a church in San Francisco.
The pastor of the church was looking over the cradle when he noticed that the baby Jesus was missing from among the figures.
Immediately he turned and went outside and saw a little boy with a red wagon, and in the wagon was the figure of the infant, Jesus.
So he walked up to the boy and said,"well, where did you get him, my friend?" The boy replied "I got him from the church" "And why did you take him?"
The boy said, "well about a week before Christmas I prayed to the little Lord Jesus and I told him if he would bring me a red wagon for Christmas i would give him a ride around the block in it."

Pitty Party

Pitty Party here I come.

I have been going thru a rough patch this last week. I do this every so often. Nothing but a pitty party really. I just can't seem to shake it.

On Thursday we had a Christmas party at TOPS and low and behold we have a 2 week old baby there.

Eveywhere I turn there seems to be pregnant women. UGH!

As Jim was cleaning out the book shelf and rearranging stuff he came upon our Adoption book. All our papers, questionaires, books. OMW why didn't we throw those out? And why did he pick this day, this week to find them.

A sign from God telling me to get over it already? Or is he just trying to help? Either way my heart cracked open a little for what I can never have.

I envy those people who can have kids and treasure that gift and I detest those who can have them but shouldn't.

How wrong does that make me? Do you think God will forgive me for this?

Told you it was a pitty party.

I think I will go cry for awhile.

To those couples who are pregnant or already have children. Treasure them, love them and treat them with care. You don't know how lucky you are to have them.

Handwritten on the wall of Mother Teresa's Room

People are often unreasonable,illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Be successful anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build it anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It never was between you and them anyway.

Been awhile, nothing good.

I know you guys just sit on the edge of your seats just waiting for me to post. LOL
I have been a little busy and a little down.

My hubby was just officially diagnosed with Parkinson's last week. We went up to Ks City and met with DR. NO BED SIDE MANNER YOU ARE STUPID SO I MUST TALK DOWN TO YOU. UGH. (Thank you Thither and Steve for going with us).

Anywho I have been feeling sorry for myself because he is not able to work until he gets the balance thing fixed and I am the only one working. We lost our Ins. and his meds are pretty expensive.

I just can't get my mind gripped around this thing. I can't figure out how to work in another job on top of the one I have. Not in a small town anyway.

I am trying to plan for the future and the help he is going to need and can't do it.

It just makes me angry to be honest.

Anyway, Good news, I am now 100 + days smoke free.

Things around town

I set out today with my camera to check on a spot mom and I want 4 seasons on. I thought if it was a go i would go get mom and we could snap some pics. Well The leafs aren't quite there yet. And I got a little carried away.
Today was a little cold (27) and windy to be doing this, but I had such a good and relaxing time.

Thought this looked cool. Our recycle place.

I love how all these colors are on 1 tree.

Vine going up the utility pole. I thought it looked pretty

I was just thinking how sad that I didn't see any deer and WHAM there they were. They were a ways away but you gotta love the zoom.

Old tractor. The wheels were the coolest. Well the whole thing was but liked the wheels the best.

Old barn and windmill

Pretty vine on the trees. Have to say I hate vines, they kill the trees. This looked really neat.

Ok in my defense if you look really quick at this picture it looks like a snake skin. Again got to love the zoom. However when I got home and downloaded the pics. I was a little upset. IT'S LITTER.. UGH. Find a trashcan for pete's sake

This is what fall is all about.

The river. I was so tempted to shoot the dead racoon that is laying on the bridge about 10 feet away. I didn't but how cool would that have been.
Anyway I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Golf balls left out by the 19 year old.

Ivy sucking the life out of my trees. I hate IVY.

More of the weed.

Weed with a Mosquito on it. I think these are flowers.
