...may meet God today.
Last night Truman was placed on life support after a clot in his leg moved to his lungs. 2pm today may bring to the end months and months of pain, suffering, and misery for all involved. Or it may not. No one knows.
Truman was unwaivering in his decision to not be kept on life support, and I cant say that I blame him. After fighting a hear aneurism, a kidney infection, discovery of advanced cancer, gsastrointestional ailments, incontenance an IV wound infection, blood clot in his leg, chemo, falling, another name it and the poor man has experienced it in about a 5 mo period--I wouldnt want to hang around for that either.
My prayer for him and all the family is Peace. Rest. Faith. and Memory--memory of who Truman was. Memory of the things Truman loved. Memory of the love we have for him and...that God's love surpasses all.
Whether it be today, tomorrow or next month, I pray that Truman is renewed upon his passing, and meets his savior amids…

My Christmas Angel

Today was an especially difficult day with the girls. Usually both were crying or whining at the same time. Reese thinks she needs a bandaid for everything. Raeleigh is teething. I am tired. And Jason is worn thin. Not an easy combination.
We HAD to go to walmart today to exchange a gift. We had bought Truman candy, but he isnt really eating well--so we returned to candy for flannel pjs. After finishing up in the store with these two kids, Jason went to check out and I went to the front of the store with the buggy bearing both Reese and Raeleigh. I stood behind the buggy unwhittingly looking even more ragged than I felt but managing to play with Raeleigh and make her laugh, while soothing Reese into beleiving that I had indeed just given her an imaginary band-aid.
An elderly man walked through the doors next to me and for a brief moment our eyes met and I felt something. I felt something I even now I cannt fully expain other than to say it was the Holy Spirit pulling the two o…


Why I love President Bush

Forget economy, forget finger pointing, forget the world...I love President Bush because as a national leader he does not fear being openly spiritual and an admitted Christian whose decisions and stances back up that proclaimation.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush reflected on his own struggle with alcohol in a White House meeting Thursday that touted gains in the war on drug abuse.

President Bush speaks about his administration's efforts in fighting drug abuse at the White House on Thursday.

CNN was the only media outlet invited to attend the entire meeting, which other reporters joined in the final minutes for remarks from the president.

Several in the room, including Don Coyhis of Colorado Springs, Colorado, who runs a program targeting Native Americans battling substance abuse, were recovered addicts or alcoholics.

Bush, who quit drinking at the age of 40, was impressed.

"Congratulations on 30 years of sobriety," the president told Coyhis. "I'm eight years behi…

Christmas Season Rules

As the Christmas season begins, I want to pass along these celebratory
tips. Enjoy the spirit of the festivities!

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a buffet table knows
nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave
immediately. Go next door, where they're serving chocolate peanut butter

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. It's rare .... You
cannot find it any other time of year. So drink up! Who cares that it
has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn
into an "eggnog-a-holic" or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one
for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of
gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of
your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As to the mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with…

I hacked off my own hair!
