Dollar Store Glitz

Add Dollar Store Pumpkin, glitter, glue and an ADD person.....
and what do you get.....
a glitter pumpkin.
My precious friend, Cindy,
the one who helped my son make my laundry detergent,
came over and we decorated pumpkins with glitter.
The only problem is I am ADD
Most of the time, I concentrate, work slowly and methodically.
But today.....  I don't know what happened.
 Cindy carefully places the glue on her pumpkin...
And I just globbed mine on....
I had so much glue on mine...  it was still wet this morning.
But it was fun!
After we decorated the real pumpkins,
we decorated our Dollar Store Pumpkins, with Dollar Store glitter.
Again,  Cindy carefully places her glue, and only uses a single color...
And I just globbed mine on... and mixed all the colors.
And.... It was fun.
We then celebrated with Chocolate Cake.
Yum! Yum!!
And this was definitely fun!
My Dollar Store Pumpkin, and my glittery results.

No Matter your personality, no matter your decorating style

Come together and Have fun!

Always Remember, Never Forget

12 years has come and gone, but the hurt and memories linger...

May we never forget those who have lost...

 Those that sacrifice for others.....

 (my brother and nephew participating in a 'Walk to Remember')
 those that are still hurting...

 (Prayers offered by our first responders)
and families that are still trying to make sense of what happened.
 May we always remember
those that Give of themselves and their lives...

Whether on American soil, or on foreign soil.

We have our freedom, because they give up theirs.

We live with our families... because they give up theirs.

Terrorist came to destroy,  but our country drew together,
and is working to rebuild.
May we never forget why...

What is important

You just never know when life can spin out of control,
and the unexpected happens.
  My Dad was rushed to the hospital with the main artery in his leg completely blocked.
  While the Doctor worked to save his leg and foot, our family drew together.
 Through heart failure, hallucinations, excruciating pain and uncertainty...
our family was a constant.
 If for some reason your family is not this way....
 Figure out what it will take to make it that way.
 And do your best.
 Don't hold grudges,
 be willing to forgive,
And let things go.
Life is too short.
