I am a big baby! Fine! I admit it! I cry at the drop of a hat! The kids left, I cried, Herbie caught a gecko in the house and saved us girls, I cried. we were at the marriage retreat and saw a man on crutches and I explained to Herbie that he could have been a war hero and never judge a person, and I cried. I read today that the next prime power class graduated, I cried! Lord! I'm a crying mess! I wasn't like this when I was younger! I've gotten more sentimental, more emotional about the weirdest, random shit! Menopause?! Lord I hope not yet!

I had posted how I think there is a plan for my life and it's my job to find out what that big thing is. As years go by, I am thinking that maybe it isn't 1 big thing but a bunch of little things. Here's a few examples. My kids went to a catholic elementary school. The school was having financial difficulties and decided to raise tuition, no multiple child discounts and to be paid before the school year began. Well we couldn't afford that and I didn't know many that could! Sol as president of the PTA, I called every newspaper and news reporter to cover it. In the end, they raised tuition slightly but didn't do anything else. It was nice knowing I had an interview with a new reporter and got them to change their minds. 

Now I see that the next prime power class has graduated and I'd like to wish them the best of luck and much success on their new career path. I found out because I keep in touch with the new (old :) FRG leader. I'm so glad that I got something started and the new classes ran with it to make it a wonderful support system!  Way to go ladies!

Those are 2 things that I'm proud of. The other 3 begin with the letters A,J,B. they are my <3   Actually now that I think of it, I have a lot to be proud of!


  1. Rarely to people accomplish "big things". In the history of mankind, maybe there's been 1,000 out of the billions that have lived. And, do those "big things" really matter more than a whole lot of little things? If you've had a positive impact on A,B, and J and in turn because of that they have an impact on two or three people each, and so on, before long that's 1000's of people and quite a legacy ...and I'd say that's a pretty big thing ;)

  2. Thank you so much honey. I've always believed we never know how many people's lives we touch. It could be something as simple as a smile that could turn a persons whole day around and in turn lead to other good things. Sometimes I lose sight of that. We are just a speck. I want my speck to leave a big, bold, wonderful impression! :)
