the gift of a rose   Leave a comment

to me giving a rose to someone says “you are wonderful to me”

“you are exceptional”
“you mean so much to me”

a rose says so many things

they are so romantic and wonderful

a rose says “I LOVE YOU”

new and old friendships   Leave a comment

what makes a friend?
what kind of commitment does a friend give to another?
I’ve always considered a friend a tell all, knowing they would keep my deepest darkest secrets

I have had very few of those kind of people in my life.

if I am not related to them, I have actually only had one true friend.

most people don’t want to hear your sob stories.

most don’t want to see you at your lowest or your worst

most people are superficial ninety percent of the time.

I have work friends but none I would care to hang out with after work.

Maybe it is me, and I just am not willing to open up enough to allow someone to be a true friend?

I want to thank you Lord   Leave a comment

Scotty McCreery has a song on his cd titled “Dirty Dishes”
and it goes something like this

“I want to thank you Lord, for noisy children and slamming doors, toys scattered all over the floor, a husband who works hard all day long, and comes home dead tired every night, a never-ending messy kitchen, and dirty dishes”

“for my little busy bees, begging mama, tell me can we please, for all those little sticky kisses, and dirty dishes”

It is a good song and I haven’t gotten all the words right there, but the concept is, a messy unorganized house, is a house full of healthy happy children and roof over their heads, a husband who has a job, and a woman who is busy cleaning up after them all.

My own thank you to the Lord are these

I thank you Lord for my 4 healthy children, for their significant others and spouses.  For taking care of my children and their families every day and seeing them all safely home to their homes at night.
I thank you Lord for my four beautiful incredibly wonderful healthy grandchildren.
All gifts from YOU!

I want to thank you for my health, for Rick’s health and for our jobs.
our home, or ability to make ends meet.
For looking after my siblings and their families and looking after Rick’s family as well.

I want to thank you Lord for this life.
For letting me live in a country where we can live freely and worship who we want to.
I want to thank you Lord for having your son die on the cross for all of our sins.
For taking care of us every single day.

It is in your son, Jesus Christ’s name I pray Lord
