38 years......

Today, is the day that my parents would have celebrated 38 years. Most of you know, that my Mom passed away in April of last year, I still wanted to acknowledge their special day. I am so proud of my parents, for so many different reasons, but especially for being married for 37 years. Marriage takes a lot of faith, hard work and dedication!
Love you and thinking of you today Dad........
Nevertheless, also, let each one of YOU individually so love his wife as he does himself; on the other hand, the wife should have deep respect for her husband.
Ephesians 5:33

Pray for me...Pray for others

I participate in "Pray for Me... Pray for Others" on the Riggs Family Blog. Check out their blog to add your prayer request. Wednesday is now known as "Pray for me...Pray for others" on the Riggs blog - and they want blog authors to post their prayer request and then post a prayer request that they have for another person/family/situation.
Pray for Me :
Things are getting pretty busy around here...just want to be able to juggle it all, WITH a smile and patience.
Pray for Others:
Abby is having a really tough week, with side effects from chemo.
My sweet bloggy friend Lisa lost her Grandfather this week.
Our friend Patrick lost his Grandma this week.
My SMIL(Step-MIL), Penny had surgery on her hand(fast recovery)
This family suffered a great loss this week!

Here comes the Bride....

On Friday night, we had our 1st grade moms "happy hour(s)". This time we had a reason to celebrate...My good friend Cathie, is getting married later on this month to a wonderful guy, Fred. Cathie's son Antonio is one of Matthew's closest friends. We decided to surprise Cathie, she thought it was "just a happy hour". I really think we surprised her, she showed up, about 40 minutes late and seemed shocked! We had collected money and purchased all kinds of fun things. We enjoyed a great evening of martinis, food and friends. The only thing that went wrong, was our friend Tricia, got sick while we were there. Her son Ryan had just survived the flu and had passed it on to her. Luckily, our friend Denise who is pregnant, was able to drive her home.
CONGRATULATIONS Cathie, I wish you only the best....ALWAYS!!!

"Life hands us many different things, good and bad. One of the greatest gifts we receive is the love of a good friend."

It's "crazy".........

On Sunday we had our schools Mother & Son Crazy Bowl. It was our 1st grade class event, so I was in charge of it. Dave & I made some cute trophy's for each winner from each age category. We also had Hershey bars with cute wrappers that I ordered for favors.

I was blessed to have good friends, help me with the check-in and score tallying, so that I was able to spend some time with my sweet-bowling boys.....
Thanks Denise, Bev, Susan & Diane, you guys are awesome!
No, we did not come home with one of our cute trophy's, (which both boys were pretty sad about), but we had a great time, with some of the best boys & Moms that I know :)
Happy Monday!
