Here and There...

Wow, I think I have a minute to breathe. We had a wonderful time in Arkansas. Wish we could of stayed longer. The decoration was nice even though it rained us out. I got to see a few cousins I had not seen in awhile.

Then last night we went to the graduation. It was so refreshing to see that their school was still letting them have prayer before it started and before in ended. By the way they loved the video!

We are back on the road probably Monday for Omaha. Stan was a court appointed guardian for an elderly friend, who was a cousin of his deceased wife. He passed away this week, a massive stroke. His stepsons said the funeral would probably be Tuesday or Wednesday. Fred had no other relatives, which is sad.

Ok let’s change the tone. I was pleased to receive a comment from Karen at
Hallelujah Anyhow! that I had received an award. Karen is a sweetheart. If you have never stopped by her corner in blogland, go check her out. You will not regret it!

Here it is:

This award was a total surprise and touched my heart. Thank you Karen! Now I am supposed to list 10 things that I love and then share this with 10 other bloggers . My first thought was only 10? But we have to abide by the guidelines, or at least we should try.

So… here we go!

I Love:
1. Jesus Christ my Rock and Redeemer!

2. My hubby, my best friend and lover all in one!
3. My family, all my family!
4. All my friends
5. My church family
6. That I live in America where we can choose to worship as we please.
7. Photography, enjoying everything God has blessed us with thru pictures
8. Blogging, my avenue to express myself and what I am feeling
9. Making new friends thru blogging
10. Enjoying life!
