I have a friend, 
her name is "Sassy", 
well, actually, her name is Kayola~
but I call her "Sassy".

Today she had a partial knee replacement.
I got a text from her family tonight, 
her surgery was successful, 
she was in recovery, 
and she'll soon be on the mend!

Before long~she'll be sportin' a cute walker
and she'll be up and around before we know it!

Leave her a message on my comments~
I'm going to copy them onto a 
GET WELL card  ~ and give it to her. 
Leave a note, whether you know her or not~
it will warm her ♥!

It's just a number!! 
How old would you be
if you didn't know how old you were?

(Chumley is my fav~cuz he's such a dork)
I had a no guilt, no regret, CHILL kind of day! 
But, back to reality in the am!!

I found something new at Sam's Club
Olive Garden Italian Dressing
I've been known to go to Olive Garden and buy salad dressing........
I love it!! 
Now if they'd just put that yummy salad in a bag and sell it~
I would be one happy girl!
It's sad when you get excited about salad dressing.....
Maybe I need to get out more!

We all know that I am technologically challenged! 
I just learned to text a year or so ago~
I don't want an IPhone or Droid....
I wouldn't know how to use them
You all saw how just making changes in blogger just about pushed me over the edge!
I've had to adjust to the changes in Facebook and 
now I notice they're making changes in Pinterest.......
Heck, if it's not broke.....don't change it!!! 
I have a hard time adjusting!!!

Little girls dance their way into your heart,
Whirling on the tips of angel wings,
Scattering gold dust and kisses in our paths

They say you must stand for something
or you'll stand for nothing......
Where do you stand on the election?
Where do you stand in your relationship?
Can you stand alone~if it means standing up for what you believe?
Do you ever "stand all amazed"?

Home is my FAVORITE place to be......
no matter what! 
I'm not a good traveler,  I need my own bed, my own chair, my own things, my own HOME, simple as it is.

I want those who visit to feel at home. 
Put your feet up, visit, stay awhile.  
 I wish my home could look like this 

 I'm not gonna lie~
but I'm thankful for my home
and for all those who enter inside!!

We don't have a blade of grass on our property~and I really do miss that, but Sweetiepie said he planned it that way. 
When we moved to this house
he gave away the mower and weed eater
and he says he doesn't miss doing yard work
one single bit!!  

But I would love to have a beautiful yard.  
I'm so jealous of Diane and Emily's nice yards, 
full of green GRASS!!

In my dreams, this is where I would like to relax 
in the cool green GRASSBut, I promise you
this has to be some place other than
Mesa, AZ.

Speaking of crap: 

In the nursery today I was talking to one of the other leaders about the Mother's Day gifts I put together for the Mom's of the sweet nursery kids.  I said, "the sick part about this is, it's all CRAP I already had".  Just then, one little boy, named Owen said to the other leader, "she said a bad word".  I apologized and now I need to repent!!! 
 Mothers Who Know Who They Are...

President Julie B. Beck on motherhood:

“The responsibility mothers have today has never required more vigilance. More than at any time in the history of the world, we need mothers who know. Children are being born into a world where they “wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”

"However, mothers need not fear. When mothers know who they are and who God is and have made covenants with Him, they will have great power and influence for good on their children.” 
Julie B. Beck, “Mothers Who Know,” Ensign, Nov 2007, 76–78
