Family is a strange thing to me sometimes. It is like there has to be a balance of good and bad. If that balance gets messed up, them things have to change. and no one likes change. I dated a guy that stated I was the bad seed in the family, I really thought that he was joking, maybe not.
I am sorry if this seems so negative, but really the only ones that read it wont care, so if you happen to come up on my blog SORRY for this.
When did family become a word of convenience.
When did I love you become, just words and not a feeling.
When is sorry enough.
when if forgiveness given.
and most important, why do all the people who is on your side, have to die.
I love my FAMILY. I am grateful for children that love me, even with out walking in my shoes. for a best friend that has been there for 40 years, (Thanks) and I am so thankful for the parents that I had

Happy Fathers Day !

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it ... Dad

My Dad is truly all these things, and I can say I am thankful for my father every day. Words really can not say how much I love him. I don't get to go see him as much as I would like, if I could I would go every day just for a hug, and to set at the kitchen table saying nothing,and looking out the window. Some of my best thinking has happened at that table. God Bless Fathers every where. May the fathers that I know have the best day. Tom , Chris,Brent,James, and to all the men I know that are not dads yet, Brandon I know you will be a great dad.
I love you all..

Pig in Mud

A couple of months ago, Stephanie and I were tired and did not want to do anything so we watched old TV shows on the computer, while sitting on the bed. We went to subway for lunch in the afternoon then went right back to doing nothing, but watching movies. We called this Pig in Mud and from that time on we have tried to recreate that day. We have had little success, until today we hope. Life gets so busy that we really do not take time to slow down and do nothing, to recharge our batteries. So I really wish all my friends out there a Pig in Mud day. Do nothing, place no time on what you do, and you will see what I mean Pig in Mud is the best thing to do on a rainy Saturday.
