Sigh.....

My very favorite Christian Rock band is in town tonight....AND I can't go. It's CASTING CROWNS! I did not have enough money. I could have bought a ticket for me in the cheap seats but I couldn't bring myself to do that. I have 6 kids, 3 of which are huge Casting Crown fans and 1 who is new to them but would love to go to a concert. BUT...I could not afford a ticket for all of them so I chose not to go myself. HUGE bummer! I so love their music and greatly appreciate their ministry. Oh well....I know...there are worse things in life...BUT it is a huge bummer. Here is a previous post about them...

Haven't really had anything of value to post about lately. Have been feeling pretty whelmed with life as of late. Some of what goes on in my world can't be posted about because of confidentiality...sadly. But I will someday. I can say this....we will be pursuing adopting our foster children. If all goes well all should be said in done in February and possibly March. Lots of hills to climb at this time though.
I need some huge changes in my life or death may come early. I think my body would just give out. Some of the changes are these....my faith. I have to learn to let go more.

Other changes are my eating habits. Enough is enough. I am not fat and happy. I am miserable and I am not sure how to get to where I need to be mentally. I am asking God for wisdom on that one. I must get mor…

In Memory of 9-11

Wow...it seems so long ago, and yet ....not, that the day which shook all of America and many in other parts of the world occurred. The day innocent lives were lost because of evil. This is my memory of that day.....
The year was 2001. I was a single working mother of 4. As was my routine every morning when I worked full time at the American Red Cross, I turned on my bedroom tv to catch the local news for traffic updates. The morning of September 11th the difference in the sound and sights that came from my little tv in my bedroom was immediately different. With a towel on my head (from my morning shower) and makeup bag in hand I sat entranced on the side of my bed. Trying to get my mind to understand what was being said and shown. It was Matt Lauer speaking and there the one of the WTC Towers was on fire. Then suddenly there was a quick glimpse of something across the screen and then a huge explosion on the other tower. The second plane had hit. I felt frozen in time. None of it seeme…
