2010, Let Go Laughing

...Now it is poor me, why me, oh me
Boring the same old worn out blah blah story
There is no good explanation for it at all

Ain't no rhyme or reason
No complicated meaning
Ain't no need to over think it
Let go laughing
Life don't go quite like you planned it
We try so hard to understand it
Irrefutable, indisputable
The fact is
It happens...

The Saints are the Sinners that keep going. Robert Lewis Stevenson

My Friend said that I was a Testament to true Grace. Hey, we are talking about me here. Sure you don't want to change your mind on that one?

Donna wanted to know why her Dad did not get her NC bumper sticker off the car. Are you kidding me? Really Donna? Seriously?
Funnier yet she is expecting a new set of keys with a sweet ride, not going to happen in this lifetime kiddo yo Mama is so over that!
Possibly a Barbie jeep or a set of rattle keys (can they get hurt with them)? Oh heck ya, gotta see this...

I can totally see us doing this, now that is funny! Jesse says he is going to do it. Hey Donna, Guess what? Won't get one of these either;)

Not sure how funny this was but I laugh at it now. I went to do something and when I came back to Donna's room the Hospital Chaplin was outside the door. "OH HELL NO, SHE IS GOING TO BE OKAY!" I did...OOPS!

You know how I was sure my kid was going to be okay, she was able to laugh and never lost her determination. Okay, she did loose that however, she had a Mom that was more determined and was not going to give up.

Donna was sleeping (so I thought). I was gazing at a sudoku puzzle. My Brain was not working how did I think I was going to figure out a Sudoku?
I hear, "You better not be eating my candy!"
"You better not be eating my candy, it is mine!"
OMGoodness I about fell out of my chair. Later when she slept this is what I did, was going to dump it all over her but with the luck running the way it was it would have gotten in the way somehow.

Yes, I did get some candy. Sara + Candy=YUMMY! I'm sweet after all right? I had to get there somehow!

A fave sweet saying...
Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few NUTS!

I have had a horrible time sleeping. Mom cranky is not funny! What is funny...Jessica laughing in her sleep, dogs snoring louder then Jesse. That is funny!

Don't say OMG**! Say O M Goodness! Your kids will love it.

When your Daughter is laid out on a table bleeding from the head, her ear shredded to pieces what to do? I had to say it...Oh yes, I went there. "This is your last chance for anymore piercings better have her do them now while you can." When she was done, "Can you hear me now". I know, I am so bad;)

NOTHING is worth more then Faith, Family and Friends. I love all of you thank you so much for all your prayers, hospital visits, help with the girls, phone calls help around our home, meals, cards and encouragement. So amazing are each and everyone of you we are so blessed to call you our Family and Friends.

Matthew 6 19-21 "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

I have Christmas cards made, not in the mail. No one has been removed from my list. However, they may turn into New Year's or Valentines snail mail.

Just some thought on the serious side.
A Mom in the Hospital that lost her child? I don't know how she could ever be happy again. My world would have ended right then and there.

The one year old no one holds or comes to see. Will he ever laugh? Oh Heck Yes, When Jessica is in his door he will!
When Donna was getting sick of me a Nurse told her, "You are lucky MOST kids come here with parents that do not care at all". "What one would you rather have?"

May God Bless you and your Family this Christmas season, Let Go Laughing!
