Its Birthday Time

Mom, Sandi, Sandra, or Frieda,
you're the greatest no one can beat ya!
You love Sonic Diet Coke with lime, and extra ice that is,
and you wont drink it if there is not enough fizz.

Hawaii is where you long to be,
to soak up the sun and swim in the sea.
Suli thinks your awesome cuz you steal chairs,
and you make Mckayl pull out all your gray hairs.

You taught me how to shimmy and shake,
and you are quite possibly the best jet skier at the lake.
Bosom buddies you have many,
Joan, Kathy, Cindy, Paula, and Penny!

Your kids are the smartest, cutest, most talented around,
and you have a dog that is as tall as she is round!
So sit back, kick up your feet and relax,
and enjoy your Birthday to the max!!!

Love ya mom!

True Greatness

"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us when adversity takes the place of prosperity when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts."
--Washington Irving
I love you mom! you are my best friend, and the greatest mom.

Sweet 16

It is my baby sisters Birthday today, she is 16! I cannot believe it. I just want to tell her how much I love her and miss her everyday. She was always my best little buddy, writing me notes and hanging out with me all the time. I am so proud of the young woman you have become, you are so beautiful, and smart, well when you want to be! I wish I could watch you play ball, but maybe in the next two years so keep it up for me because I want to be your #1 fan just like you were mine! Have a great day I love you Raegan!

I did what needed to be done, no regrets

So I have been absent for quite awhile, its not because I don't have time on my hands, because I do. I just have had to deal with a very bad situation at my work and have been trying to figure out how to best handle it. I did what needed to be done, and today was my final meeting. I have no regrets, because I did what was right, even though nothing is being done I can still be at peace knowing I did the right thing. Thanks mom and dad for always teaching me to stand up for myself and to speak out when something is wrong!

“Everybody in this life has their challenges and difficulties. That is part of our mortal test. The reason for some of these trials cannot be readily understood except on the basis of faith and hope because there is often a larger purpose which we do not always understand. Peace comes through hope.”

James E. Faust

I just found this quote and it made me feel better than I have felt these last three weeks.
