I laid in my bed last night for what seemed like eternity before I was able to drift off to sleep. My mind was filled with two thoughts last night, one, my poor son who was coughing for what seemed like forever. As a mom it is really hard to sleep knowing one of the kids is sick. But mainly I was up missing my hunny and worrying that he was ok. Even feel a little blue still knowing I can't have what I need the most right now.

But I got up this morning and checked my email as I always do. A friend sent me one of those stupid chain letters. You know the kind that says you must send to 10 other people or something bad will happen.....I hate those. But The message of it was pretty inspiring. Inside of the message was some simple rules on how we should all really live.....put a smile on my face this morning and for one moment, didn't feel quite as sad. So I will pass what I read on to ya all...... of course without telling ya to pass it on to other people........Thats up to you.

If God brings you to it he'll bring you through it.....

ONE.Give people more than they expec t and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
