Reach for the Stars

This is one of the greatest places to go to see some Beautiful lights, the have all the building lit up and all the trees from the base to the tip of every branch, you can drive through or get out and walk through to see all the lights and visit the live manager. My two year old grandson just loved every part of it, BUT his favorite part was the "FUN HOUSE" as he called it! He decided that he needed to get out of the car and run through it while holding hands with his parents and asked them "Could you PLEASE lift me so I reach the star", it brought tears to my eyes while watching him enjoy the beauty of this Beautiful place. I know in my mind he didn't know what it all stood for but in his little mind these lights made his night and his world a much brighter place. I didn't know if the night could get any better than to see the true amazement on his face hut as we were driving out he turned to his Mom and said "Thank you very much Mommy for bringing me", to me their is nothing any more precious that a two year old who greatly appreciated every minute of the night. He is just PURE LOVE. (Thank you Connor for making this a memory that will never be forgotten).

WOW!! Not a Good WOW either!

I can not believe that it has been so long since last the post. As you can all see my Blog is far from an exciting blog or even a daily blog, when I started it I thought this will be so much fun and give me something to do while sitting around BUT as you can see I failed drastically! It is not that I don't have the time as others struggle in that area because they have a very busy life. There was a day in the past that my life was the same, but not anymore, (insert sad face). I have nerve damage which causes me to live daily in pain and never know from day to day where that pain is going to be the worse. I thought that blogging may take my mind off it for a few hours but then I came to the conclusion that just sitting around and not being able to do a lot doesn't make for a very exciting blog. I have thought of just blogging about the ups and downs of daily life but that sometimes can be a little depressing to talk about and WHO needs that, I am sure you deal with that enough in your day to day life without wanting to read what I have to say. I have mainly use my blog name and site to follow others GREAT blogs, I  love to give comments to others because when I started that is what I thought I would like the best about it, reading the comments.  I am going to try to be more consistent with the blogging , we will see how good I am at it.  I truly love to read and follow blogs, there have been days where I wish that the people I read daily could post more than once a day and not make their post as short that day? I know, as I said I have more time than most do! I do not do New Year's Resolutions however this year one thing I am going to try to do is make my blog a place where others would be willing to stop back from time to time and be excited that they took time from their busy life to do so. Thanks to all who have stopped and may decide to stop again. Wishing each and everyone a Healthy and Happy Holiday this year 🌲🌲🌲

How FAST our babies GROW...

I have to admit that I see this on another blog and decided that I needed to post it also, I have a very hard time with the concept of accepting that my three children are NOT  my children. I now in my heart that they just came through me and when my husband cut the cord on each one that meant that they no longer were going to need me soley to survive. I knew that each and everyone would grow and become an amazing person that they have.
Throughout the years as they grew up they all proved that they had their own thoughts, not always the ones I may have chose for them, but nevertheless they each  had their. There were days when I wondered if any of them remembered that I was the Mother and they were still supposed to depend on me to help them with their thoughts and needs. Most of the time they made good choices all by themselves ( of course I was ALWAYS by their side just in case they still needed me to help them out with a thought). I can rememeber so many times when they were little I would tell them it was time for them to "STOP" growing, their reply was "Mom, we can't do that", as if they really believed I thought that was possible. I know that "I housed their bodies" but I also know that those bodies that I had to disconnect from are three of the most precious bodies that I will ever know in my lifetime. "I love you three with my whole  heart and soul and always will".


Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams...

To the mom who's breastfeeding: Way to go! It really is an amazing gift to give your baby, for any amount of time that you can manage! You're a good mom.

To the mom who's formula feeding: Isn't science amazing? To think there was a time when a baby with a mother who couldn't produce enough would suffer, but now? Better living through chemistry! You're a good mom.

To the cloth diapering mom: Fl...uffy bums are the cutest, and so friendly on the bank account. You're a good mom.

To the disposable diapering mom: Damn those things hold a lot, and it's excellent to not worry about leakage and laundry! You're a good mom.

To the mom who stays home: I can imagine it isn't easy doing what you do, but to spend those precious years with your babies must be amazing. You're a good mom.
To the mom who works: It's wonderful that you're sticking to your career, you're a positive role model for your children in so many ways, it's fantastic. You're a good mom.

To the mom who had to feed her kids from the drive thru all week because you're too worn out to cook or go grocery shopping: You're feeding your kids, and hey, I bet they aren't complaining! Sometimes sanity can indeed be found in a red box with a big yellow M on it. You're a good mom.

To the mom who gave her kids a homecooked breakfast lunch and dinner for the past week: Excellent! Good nutrition is important, and they're learning to enjoy healthy foods at an early age, a boon for the rest of their lives. You're a good mom.

To the mom with the kids who are sitting quietly and using their manners in the fancy restaurant: Kudos, it takes a lot to maintain order with children in a place where they can't run around. You're a good mom.
To the mom with the toddler having a meltdown in the cereal aisle: they always seem to pick the most embarrassing places to lose their minds don't they? We've all been through it. You're a good mom.

To the moms who judge other moms for ANY of the above? Glass houses, friend. Glass houses.

*****These are not my words, but Thank you Brit for writing it or copying it from wherever you may have got it from because it is so true.

My opinion on these issues are it is easier to sit back and say things about others, what we may think is the right or the wrong way for people to handle issues, BUT until you walk in their shoes the best thing to do is NOT judge others.
****I will admit that I have been one at times to judge and can not say that I won't ever do it again but I will say I will try my best to remember this***

My Thoughts and Prayers Go Out To All In Boston

It is hard to believe that we have to worry about running a marathon or being in a crowd for fear that we are unsafe. There were many from our hometown that were there running or watching and luckily they are all safe. I can only say that I pray for all and hope that justice is served. Send prayers for all and make a stand to stay strong and do not let this kind of tragedy stop what we all love to do and that is live life as we please.

Love to Link Up

I love when others set up a Link Up page on their blogs, it makes it so much easier for each of us to find exciting stuff on the web without spending hours having to research it ourselves. I did my first link up over at today. Thank you Kelly for setting it up.

These are just a very few things that I have on my pinterest boards that I would like to try to make. I am certainly what you would call "addicted to Pinterest". I could sit, well I do sit for hours at a time and look through others boards. My husband will sometimes ask me, "when and if I will ever have time to attempt to do all that I have pinned". The answer is" NO", I will never have time to do it all or even attempt it all, but I pin things for my daughters whom both have children and 1 has her own child care business and the other is a preschool teacher. I feel like I am helping them out by pinning what they may use or think is cute.  That makes me feel like I am not wasting my time doing it for nothing, but the truth is I probably would do it no matter what. There may be a day that I do need or want to make something and I will know right where to go to find it. HA.I believe that was the whole concept behind it.  I am excited to check out some of the links that blogger's have put on Kelly's blog.

 Some people thought I was addicted before so Kelly just helped make my addiction easier. HA...

What is Reality Tv?

I have to admit I do watch reality TV, however I  think that when they put Honey Boo Boo on they pretty much had to scrape to the bottom to get that show. I have watched it a few times, I have to watch it closely to read the captions because I can not understand what they say. Mama June has said that all Southerner's talk fast because they live in a fast paced world so you have to talk fast, they have their own language like a vigiggle jangle or  biscuit express. They also had a sheriff bring them road kill to grind up to eat. Wow, is this just a show or is it for real?
I also believe that every family has a choice as to whether to put their child in a pageant. I truly do not believe in exposing a young child to that. I believe that if it was all natural beauty that they were to judge these children on I would not have such a problem with it. They have to wear flippers, wigs, make up and get spray tans to be able to compete. This is when I believe that  it is more than a little girl should be exposed to. Then you see them all pumping them with  pure sugar or soda. My beliefs are that when children are small  maybe they should be treated their age not try to make them look like an adult.I have no idea what is true and what is made up but I read a story that Mama June has put every cent that they have made in the bank for the girls future, whether they choose to further their education or not they have to wait to spend their money. If this is true I have to give her credit for thinking that far ahead. Mama June said that Sugar Bear works very hard to support their family and that they are not going to have this show change that. It will be interesting to see where this family ends up with them being celebrities.
I would like to know what you all feel about reality TV shows and children being in pageants, are you waiting weekly to watch your favorite or are you thinking that maybe enough is enough with them.
