Well, this was originally posted last year! But I have such a wonderful family I wanted to share it again. My family gives above and beyond and I want them to know that I love them very much! This video is dedicated to Ronnie, Rosalee, Wenona, Michael, Dustin, Christian, Raegan and Madi. I love each of you very much and hope that you all know how very much you are loved and appreciated.
So, it's been a few months since I stopped in and wanted to say hi to all my friends. If you take the time to watch this video, you will see life has been pretty busy around our house. Thanksgiving this year, really was special to me and wanted to share a little of why with you.
I began working on this video as a Christmas Present for Rosalee... as I worked on it, I realized just how much I had to be thankful for and just how lucky I was. This past year has been filled with ups and downs... but life has had a way of seeing me through. Recently I found a wonderful job that I truly love and enjoy.
Through in a wonderful family and what else could a person need. Raegan tells, everyone she is not reach, but she is wealthy. You know, she is right... she is! We all are! Most of us measure our wealth in $$$$.... well we are much richer when we stop and take account our familes and the small things we have. I have been blessed with wonderful children, nieces and nephews, my father and grandmother and now with a whole new family. I am very Thankful for what I have and couldn't ask for anything more.
While the world around us falls apart we should stop and thing about what we truly have and give thanks for what God has given us. Most of us spend our time worring about what we dont have and what everyone else around us has.
People spend there life making others around them miserable instead of taking the time to just appreciate what they have. Life would be so much better if we would just slow down and be thankful and appreciate what we have......

Well, class was full of information. My brain is in overload and have to study for my test tomorrow night. Work was uneventful today, which by the way is nice for a change. This is probably the first slow day I have had since Fall Registration. However, soon enough it will speed back up and kick into gear for Spring Registration. Can you believe it, 2010 is just around the corner. Where did the time go? Our annual Breath of Life Gala for Cystic Fibrosis is rapidly approaching as well. I sure hope that it is a successful one since our donations have not reached the goal yet.
Just want to send a special " I LOVE YOU"! out to Ronnie to let him know that I love him very much and miss him even more. I hope that you will be home soon...

"life is not measured by the number of breath's we take, but instead by the number of moments that take our breath away"
Some of those moments are not always happy ones. We must never forget the events and lives touch or lossed on this dreadful day in America's history.....

A few weekends ago, we went and spent the day with Rosalee and watched the Hotter 'N Hell 100. After it was over, everyone went and helped Papa clean out the fish pond in their backyard. While dumping the old water from the pump, we discovered that baby catfish had been hatched. So, Rosalee and Dustin began scoppin them up and putting them into a clean tub of water. Dustin being the inquisitive one wanted to know if they would grow in his fish tank. So he came home with 4. Rosalee told him when they got to big for his tank to bring them back and they would release them. That state triggered a weekend project for Dustin and a life time or worry for the rest of us, because when he gets a project in his mind, non of us are going to get any sleep till it is complete....
Friday night, while I was in my office working on homework and the boys were watching tv or doing what boys do, I could hear Dustin outside working and getting into something. I went to check and he was rock hunting back in the woods behind our house. So I left him alone.....

this story was written by my son yesterday in English class. I have not changed or added anything from the original story.
