Baptism!

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Today has been wonderful... as our youngest grandson, Anderson Wallace was baptized. It was a beautiful ceremony and the deacon was terrific with all the small children (seven including Anderson) who were there to witness this wonderful sacrament! My oldest son converted to the Catholic faith when he married his wife and continues to impress his father and I with his strong devotion to his family and faith. It was a double blessing today, as our daughter became Anderson's Godmother, even though she isn't Catholic... I love to see different faiths working together as one, taking care of God's business!!!!
Have a blessed week!

Week-end!

Saturday, April 14, 2012

It's a beautiful Saturday morning, made even better by the fact that two of my grandchildren (and their parents) are here for the week-end! Later on this evening another of our grandsons, Layton will be here and tomorrow morning we will all head to Perryville for the baptism of our newest grandson, Anderson, who is a little over a month old! This will be the first time ALL five of my grandchildren have been together!! So excited... hope to get a picture or two of all of them together... getting them to sit still long enough will be the trick!! (Ages: Bryson 5, Layton 4, Bennett 3, Jillian 2, and Anderson newborn) Have a wonderful day!!!

Prom Week-end!

Friday, April 13, 2012

Our students and school will be celebrating prom this week-end! What an exciting time for everyone involved, but especially the young ladies, some of whom spent weeks searching for the perfect dress, shoes, hairstyle, make-up etc... The gym is decorated in a Masked Ball theme and looks gorgeous!! It's so inspiring to see and feel the excitement in our young people as they prepare for this annual event, reminds me that the circle of life goes on... this may just another to prom to most of us...but for them its something special.. to be relished and enjoyed! I'm praying for each of them to have a wonderful time, where they create memories they will cherish and even more importantly that each of them will return home safely at the end of their magical night! :)

Wasted time?

Thursday, April 12, 2012

You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted. -Ruth E. Renkl

How much of our lives do we waste being unhappy? Unhappy over little things that really don't matter... oh my

    When you are unhappy - just look around and see all of the things that make you happy. Our time is too precious to waste! emoticon

Perspective...

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I read this on another blog today and had to share it with others! It's simple and straight forward and makes this process so completely doable!!!

As long as you're moving forward, you will eventually reach the top.

One step.
One minute.
One mile.
One workout.
One bite.
One meal.
One hour.
One day.
One week.
One pound.

    They always tell us "Baby Steps" and I think making too big a plan makes us discouraged. emoticon
