This is Laura massaging my hip after I had walked about 5 miles at least with Ashley and came back to cool off and rest before dinner. She's so precious!!!!!We went, we ate, we laughed, I cried taking off on the plane which surprised my daughter, she thought I usually have it all together- I guess it's a quirk I should have listed the other day, I feel so anxious when I fly. But I had a great time with people I love and I'll do it again at the next opportunity. I'll write more details tomorrow-bed is calling- being a jet setter is tiring!As always, be blessed and remember He is the lifter of our heads!

The first picture above is my Little (6foot 4) brother Bert who was born when I was 11. He has two precious kids and a wonderful wife. I am proud of the man he is. The next picture is my parents, my oldest brother Mike, his daughterAmanda and my sister Julie.My oldest brother is a single father and he and his son Nick may be moving home to Alabama. That will be a blessing. My sister is 3 years younger than me and she lives with my Mom and Dad and she has been a wonderful care giver during and since my parents health troubles. We all grew up and have many wonderful memories to keep in our hearts of dinner together every night, Christmases and holidays together, heartaches shared and someone who is always there for you even if we don't speak everyday.
The first picture above is Ashley, my oldest daughter, who is a remarkable mother of two and now has one more blessing on the way. She married my son-in love Donny, who is wonderful and we all have a blessed close relationship. I am proud of the woman she is. The next is me with my son Chase and daughter Whitney. Chase is a wonderful daddy to my little bugger boy Ryder and he is a good man-I'm proud of him. Whitney is a senior at University of Alabama-ROLL TIDE-I'm actually a heart divided but that's another story.WAR EAGLE! I am very proud of her and look forward to see the places she'll go. She's very gifted in many ways.
This is Juju and Barbie, my two best friends. I am blessed with many friends, including 6 dear friends from high school over 30 plus years of friendship, plus a Sunday School class of ladies I love very much. I have friends that are big parts of my life and extended family that are dear to me. These two ladies are the everyday, know all about me, share our lives, now we are family friends and I thank God for them.
So can't you see that I am blessed, cos this is just the tip of the iceburg and the special people who enrich my life. Oh yeah, they are all waiting on me to come eat dinner with them -so I guess I better go.
Thanks for letting me share and as always I pray you are blessed!

Twenty Gifts to Give
1. Mend a quarrel.
2. Seek out a forgotten friend.
3. Hug someone tightly and whisper, "I love you so".
4. Forgive an enemy.
5. Be gentle and patient with an angry person.
6. Express appreciation.
7. Gladden the heart of a child.
8. Find the time to keep a promise.
9. Make or bake something for someone else . Even anonymously.
10. Speak kindly to a stranger.
11. Enter into another's sorrow.
12. Smile. Laugh a little. Laugh a little more.
13. Take a walk with a friend.
14. Kneel down and pat a dog.
15. Lessen your demands on others.
16. Apologize if you were wrong.
17. Turn off the television and talk.
18. Pray for someone who has helped you in a time of need.
19. Give a soft answer even though you feel strongly.
20. Encourage an older person.
I told you this list would not cost you monetarily, but some of these are not things that come easily for some people. Move out of your comfort zone and gift others each day. Jesus said in Acts 20:35 "It is more blessed to give than to receive." One of my alltime "favorite" verses is Luke 6:38 where Jesus tells us The way I interpret that is like when we measure sugar for a recipe we just pour it in a cup, when we measure brown sugar we pack it in there and it ends up being way more than just the poured amount or when we beat whipping cream the amount after we beat all that air in looks like alot more, so what we get back is going to be overflowing and more than we can hold- Could you stand that? I'd like to try!
I want to be known as a good gifter. I'm going to keep on trying.
Thank you dear one for reading me today.

Dallas here we come!
We are here visiting Barbie's Mom and Dad and siblings. Today, Sunday we went to Canton, Texas and First Monday. It was quite fun- I bought a cross for my cross wall. Before that we went to First Baptist of Canton and the service was wonderful. The pastor preached on one of my favorite subjects-"What is the Cross". I want to share some of those thoughts and my feelings from that with you in a more serious posting . This one is more pictorial and sharing some of the good things of this day. Thomas had fun with his cousins on the trampoline.
One of my favorite places to go in Dallas is Kellers Hamburgers. Its on Northwest Highway. You drive in and park and get out of the car and most people order hamburgers and beer. I am not a beer drinker. Boy, I love their hamburgers. They have poppy seeds on the buns and the burgers are delicious, but I think its the fact that the whole family meets there together and hangs out and its great. Here is Barbie, her Dad and her handsome brother Eddie at Kellers.Tomorrow is another day and I look forward to more time in the Big D with Barbie's family.
Enjoy your families and Be blessed!
