Great Quotes

Thank you once again my fantastic readers! Your quotes were totally helpful and much loved by our girls. I particularly loved the about life being about more than learning to weather the storm, it is about learning to dance in the rain. Actually there were MANY that I loved. I am so glad they are all there to be such a great resource for me. I love great quotes.

I have been playing single mom for a couple of days as Jon has been away to a conference. Having older kids makes this so much easier than it was a few years ago when he used to travel for work often. Still I have been busier than normal. Busy is good. Thus simpler and fewer posts this week.

I am excited to see Jon again tonight when he gets home. He has only been gone about 48 hours. But since he works from home I get to see him all day everyday almost. It has been a few years since we have spent a night apart. I am glad that after nearly 10 years of marriage I still miss him when he is away.

Well, speaking of busy, I have more kid duties to attend to now so I am off. Thank you again for all the great quotes.

I'm late with this quote, but it's wisdom has been a help in my life:
"Circumstances may color my life, but I choose the color."
--Eleanor Roosevelt

I know you missed him, but we loved having "Uncle Jon" here for a little while. Once the kids got over the shock that their cousins weren't in the mini van, they loved having him around. Stella requested to sit by him at dinner (sweet). Charlotte danced to his piano playing and requested more! more! All the classics were played... cruella de ville, food around the corner and more.
glad you made it through single momhood for a few days. Your REAL vacation is so soon! yeah! will you be blogging while abroad?? ;) love and miss you much.

Love that quote as well... I have a similar quote that goes like this:

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance

I really love reading your blog you are very inspirational. I have a request if impossible. I know you have a large following and right now we can use some extra prayers. Jacob Bingham is a very special young man. He loss his father in a life flight accident a few years ago. His father was the pilot and they crashed on a foggy night trying to get someone in need to the hospital. Anyways. Jacob was in Colorado this past week and was hit by a drunk drive. He is stable but has sever head trauma. He do not know how bad yet. He has not woken up. A bless has been given and his mother is by his side. The only thing I can do is get people to pray for him. That is where you come in. If you could put a little blurb in your blog I know a lot of people will read it and prays will be streaming to heaven. He and his family have been through so much. They can use all the comfort they can get. Thank you for you consideration.
