We're off to see the blizzard 2007 edition

I'M SO SICK OF SNOW!!! I can never get in OR out of my driveway, I slide through every stop sign I come to, the stairs to my deck are completely buried and the kids are always home from school!!! Oh, and the cold CRACKED the bumper of my van in two! BLAH!!! I thought we were past the worst of it but now it's coming down like crazy again! That stupid groundhog didn't know what he was talking about!

Girl interrupted

Am I the only one so saddened by Britney's behavior lately? Now last night she shaved her head bald??? It's almost like I can feel her sadness coming through every picture. I really pray for her...she has so much potential and can't let a no-good man destroy her spirit. C'MON GIRL!!! RENEW YOUR SPIRIT!!! WHEN TIMES GET TOUGH STRONG WOMEN GET BOLD, NOT BALD!!!


No Megan, nothing fun happened

Yesterday was a big, fat, boring failure as far as Valentine's goes. First of all we were totally snowed in. The picture above is of my dining room window and yes, that's REALLY the snow half-way up my house!!! The cars are buried in...and the cold and snow by itself cracked the front bumper of my van! :( We didn't do anything special or give or get anything special...it was really just another day. Oh well. Sure wish the snow would clear up though just so that the kids could go back to school!


The simplest of all love songs

The best way to start this valentines week of mine would be to write a little something to acknowledge the number one valentine in my life... JESUS. Is there a more beautiful name than that? He is as perfect as I am imperfect. As precious as I am wretched. He is my everything. To him and from him and through him and for him are all things. He is the reason I do everything that I do and the reason I strive to constantly do better. He is omnipotent and sovereign and just. He is perfect and almighty. He is gracious and loving. There just simply aren't enough adjectives for my feelings for him. So I'm posting one of my all-time favorite praise songs on here...it sums it all up.

Phillips, Craig and Dean

You are God in heaven
And here am I on earth
So I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with You
And I'll stand in awe of You, Jesus
Yes, I'll stand in awe of You
And I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with You
The simplest of all love songs
I want to bring to You
So I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with You


How do I love thee?

I've never had a valentine before. Yeah, I've been married twice and had plenty of boyfriends, but never a valentine (at least I didn't think so). The closest I came is when I received that big vase of tulips last year...but that didnt' last long did it? lol That's ok though because it was ALL worth it in the end...I have a GREAT life! Even with all of the kid-struggles and newlywed-trying-to-get-used-t0-each-other struggles, I can't sing from the mountain-top loud enough........

With this new wonderful outlook on my life I've decided to have a wonderful new outlook on valentines day...I want to start taking the opportunity every single year to celebrate every single valentine in my life. My children, my husband, my family, my friends...everyone who has a place in my heart. I want you all to know exactly what you mean to me, how pretty I think you all are, how handsome I think my husband is, how smart and capable you all are, how much you inspire me, how much fun I have with all of you and how much you make me laugh....the whole shebang! I am BLESSED to be surrounded by some of the most AWESOME people in the world!! People I never thought I would even meet from other areas...but I have...and now you're in my world and you're all awesome! :)


Family get-together

Tonight we had a surprise birthday party at BW3's for my friend Ricky (he's the one in the picture above) from work. My friend Valerie, his girlfriend that I also work with, has been planning it for about a month and we've been trying to keep it from him...I'm really surprised no one blew it. He was genuinely surprised.
It was no big deal...no fireworks or crazy drunk people...just a nice get together for someone we all cared about. As I sat there looking around at all the people that were there and was briefly explaining to Scott who was who and where they worked, etc. I realized that I felt so much love for these people...they feel more like my family than my real family....kind of like I do after a girls weekend. I looked from face to face and was thinking about the stories and the histories I know about each and every one of them...and that they know about me. I'm invested them and they in me. They've grieved and celebrated with me. They've cried and rejoiced with me. And it doesn't matter how busy we get, we all come out at the important times to support each other. There were some faces missing which was sad...some permanently, some just for tonight. There were some new faces like Scott's who were welcomed with open arms. We had a really nice, mellow time. We had some wings and some cake, talked for a while, laughed and talked and then headed for home.
As I walked outside I hugged some people goodbye then headed out into the cold night. As I was walking away I heard someone call out to me "LOVE YOU V!" and I called back that I loved them too.... and that made my night because it's so symbolic of my life...it doesn't matter what I'm heading out into or how dark and cold it might feel around me, I will always have someone standing behind me reminding me how much I am loved and accepted. Another example of how good my life is.
