I purchased this book Monday while in Phoenix. I started reading it Tuesday afternoon and could NOT put it down until I read the last "letter".
I cannot say enough about this masterpiece! It is one of those books that you wish would never end! It is a MUST for every library!
Thank you Jason for sharing your gift with us. I can't wait to read your next book!

I love you Momma.....

One of the hardest things for me as a parent is following through with discipline. I have really been trying to work on this and I think its being noticed. How do I know this you ask? Well...lately Connor has been telling me he loves me A LOT!!!

Me to Connor as he is playing a video game "Connor, do you remember that mom said you could not play games until your room is clean?"

Connor - "I love you Momma"

Me - "I love you too Connor, but you need to turn your game off until your room is clean."

Connor - "But I really LOVE you Momma!"

Me - " I REALLY love you too Connor. Game off and clean your room."

Connor - "Momma, I need a hug."

Me - "Ok come here and I'll give you a hug and then I'll help you tidy your room."

Connor - To himself I'm SURE "Got her again!"

In Memoriam....

For those who lost their lives on 9-11
And for those who serve our Country tirelessly:

We thank and salute you!

This is gonna be a LONG one.....

I ran across this while doing some much needed cleaning in my "office" and even though its long and you have probably heard it I think its worth the "re-run". Get a Kleenex.

To My Child

Just for this morning, I am going to smile when I see your face and laugh when I feel like crying.

Just for this morning, I will let you choose what you want to wear, and smile and say how perfect it is.

Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles.

Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one if he comes by.

Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are concerned.

Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.

Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys.

Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I love you.

Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and not get angry.

Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my fingers through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.

I will think about the mothers and fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms, and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.

And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, and a little longer, It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask him for nothing,

Except one more day!
C. Sally Meyer.

Hit counter blues.....

As you can all see I added a cute hit counter to my blog! You can imagine my DELIGHT as I see the number going higher and higher at a (seeming) rapid rate! YEAHHH people LOVE my blog...they CAN'T get enough!!....then I walked past Scott while on the computer...what did I hear??? "Once there was a snow man snow man snow man......" To my SHOCK it was he who was racking my hit counter up at a breakneck speed...he said "This is great now I don't have to keep brining the CD in from the car all the time"!
