Self help

My husband and i mostly him was organizing books today and re arranging the office and all our books.  As we looked at the selp help books such as the ADD answer, Boundaries, and who's pushing your buttons we talked about how they helped us and how much they might help others.  There are so many books and so may life changing things in them.  Parents, spouses and anyone can grow and mature with little snittits from these books.  Fool Proofing your like is another one.  WOW I put that one right with boundaries soo good and goes along with Boundaries if you ask me.
Any how in this mornings goings on i just had these thoughts... Happy monday and may you find the books that might help you in this very mment that you need a little help, advice or growth!

Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Sometimes it feels like this worlds gone crazy

Grandpa, take me back to yesterday

When the line between right and wrong

Didn't seem so haz


Did lovers really fall in love to stay

And stand beside each other, come what may

Was a promise really something people kept

Not just something they would say

Did families really bow their heads to pray

Did daddies really never go away

Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast

We call it progress, but i just don't know

And grandpa, let's wander back into the past

And paint me the picture of long ago

(repeat chorus)

Did lovers really fall in love to stay

And stand beside each other come what may

Was a promise really something people kept

Not just something they would say and then forget

Did families really bow their heads to pray

Did daddies really never go away

Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days

Writing with Light"

Did you know that Photography literally means "Writing with light?" That is correct. "Photo" means "light" and "graphy" means "writing." Hence a graphologist is a handwriting analyst. So, effective use of light is at the heart of good photography.

The Quarter

The other night while working front desk in a nursing home a resident came to me in frustration as his phone was not working so I diealed the number and got to bless him with a phone call to his daughter.. It was fun listening to them as he was right in front of me and the switcvhboard never rang the whole time. that was cool in itself. They talked of the plans for fathers say and she had a way of cherring him up. By the time his call was ending and explaining his frustration to her it was all laughs by the end and he said goodbye. Then he stated telling me a story of his childhood and how he grew up in the Ellensburg are and that the thing to do on a saturday night was to buy popcorn at the popcorn stand and it would cost a whole quarter. He was a senior in highschool and could stay out till 9:00 and all the rancher boys from the other side of the hill would come over and they would line up their cars and talk. the thing was the local guys would stay in thier car and the visiting guys would walk car to car and chat. Then next weekend they would do the same, go over the hill, park their rigs in a line and they would walk to the local's car and talk and then they would ALL take thier earnings hopefully was a quarter and go buy popcorn and take it home to mom and pop pour it out into a bowl and the family would sit around 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 and talk and eat popcorn..

Always a Good Reminder

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee.
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “yes.”

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. “Now,” said the professor, as the laughter subsided, ” I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

The golf balls are the important things- God, family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favorite passions — things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else — the small stuff.
“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal.” Take care of the golf balls first — the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,

there’s always room for a couple cups of coffee with a friend.”

We love this movie and Morgan and I have a few funny sayings and one is "Okey Dokie and I'll make you a cake" And sometimes we surprise each other and do make a cake........... just funny goofyness

My guy

This is my son Raymond he is a 17 year old joy..

Loves his trucks and snowboarding and even remote control trucks being his latest hobby.. He has made some mistakes in the lat year but has learned sooo much and totally changed his life. He always brings his buddies to youth group and some of them are very grough looking kids but he is soft spoken and not a dirt stirrer for the most part but loves to get his friends to the church to hear the message from Jack and then games and sharing. He is one of those kids that is quiet, does not do good in BIG crowds but when he feels like talking we have learned to just stop everything and listen because those doors do not open all the time.. We had a great talk the other night at 11:30 and he poured out his heart with me and i think he is in love aaaaahhh with a very sweet girl and she is very pretty and I am so happy she has gotten very comfortable her at our house. The lord only knows the future all i can do is plant the seads the lord has given me to plant... Our kids grow up sooo fast .....

Venus is our black cat... hates to be held and rules the street. You can always find her on our neighbors roof just hangin out and watching things.. She is a jackal and Hide sometimes you can pick her up and love on her but only for about 23 seconds then she bolts to higher ground I do not exaggerate she wants out of your arms and it not let go she will go up... any how shot this the other day and thought I would share.

This was an image taken today. Soon an hour later the river that is on the other side of those trees broke loose and all this water kept going for miles and is now headed through the feild behind our house.. a bit creepy and uneasy I would say.
