Would You Believe

As I'm sitting here doing important stuff on FB , Amber walks in and immediately starts scratching at a little chocolate spot on the front of my shirt and asks, "How does anybody get chocolate on their shirt eating M&M's?". (Apparently she has never seen an M&M explode.)

If You Want To

I love this kind of weather! I love standing on the warm side of the door looking out into the cold outdoors even though there is a  bright sun shining. This is the kind of day I could go out and cut wood all day, if I wanted to. I could haul that wood and stack it near the house, if I wanted to. This is the kind of day I could wrap up in warm clothes, put on my hiking boots and walk for miles and miles through the beautiful countryside breathing the crisp country air, if I wanted to. This is just the right kind of day to become energized and do all those things that need doing, if you want to.

I learned a valuable lesson today concerning secrets. Apparently when something is a secret it means you can only tell one person at at a time.

We Got Smarts in The Family

I remember way back when one of my brothers and I were moving a storage building along some back roads when we came to a railroad overpass with a sign that said "Clearance 11' 3". We stopped and measured the load and it was 12' 4". I turned to my brother and asked what he thought. He looked around carefully and said, "Not a cop in site. Let's take a chance." I'm not saying which brother.

The Cause Can Be Harsh

The cause is harsh, the results are difficult, the battle has but one end. Love never fades, we share the pain but disguise the tears. The memories hold strength with no regret. We will hold all that is left and give all that is ours to give. Just know this my sweet , I am here now and will forever be.
