    Holding On To My Baby

    If it weren't for your love, compassion and general existence this little guy wouldn't be here for you to be talking about him in the present tense. Of course he has a soul; anything capable of feeling love has a soul and, as we know, dogs love unconditionally so, if anything, their souls must be bigger than ours. He's one lucky pup to have you for a mom xx

    My Magical Book

    A similar experience here---We had the full set of World Book Encyclopedia, and when I was little, I loved to pull out any volume and just browse through it, reading about anything that looked or sounded interesting. I also had 3 or 4 of the Tell Me Why books. I learned so much just by "following my nose" through the World Book. And my mom got a kick out of telling people, "She reads the encyclopedia!" Reading good books also teaches kids correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar, just by exposing them to it. Anyway, that's how I learned them without even realizing it.

    Seawaters, don't be a tease. Tell us ALL why.

    Self Esteem

    If I could bestow a gift to you, it would be this: that you could see yourself through the eyes of your MMC friends. Think of George Bailey, and remember truthfully what you have given to others in kindness, and allow yourself the same gifts of kindness.

    Self Esteem

    I know this was spoken from your heart. When I saw the title "Self Esteem" on the forum home page, I IMMEDIATELY thought of you and wanted to see if a wise person had written something that would speak to your heart. I found out that a wise person did write that something. I loved the comment about your mom weighing less than 100 pounds but having 1000 pounds of attitude. I laughed out loud! We each have gifts. Respect what God has given you! I am going to share about a book I am reading right now in my next post on the Countdown. I think you will like it!

    Merry Christmas Mom And Dad

    Just getting to read some of the blog posts now that I am home recuperating. This beautiful tribute to your parents touched my heart in many ways. You are a remarkable person and your parents are proud of you beyond your imagination as you carry on without their physical presence. I dream of hugging my parents again someday- miss them so much it brings tears to my eyes at the thought of them. God bless you for sharing these deeply personal remembrances of your lovely family.

    Here Come The Demons

    Thinking of you, Louann. I will keep you & your entire family (humans, canines, and felines!) in my prayers.
    I'm so glad to have found YOU, and so many other good friends here at MMC, to help keep Christmas alive year round. What a blessing you all are! Whenever you are feeling down, we are here for you. Sending lots of love, from your niece Harlowe & I. xo

    I also forgot to add how I tend to worry about losing loved ones too. It's an awful fear that gets to me sometimes. I pray we both can cherish our loved ones without having to worry about that all the time. (((hugs)))

    Here Come The Demons

    I love hearing about you and your sister's Christmas tradition! I know it's hard to do but try to not be upset when Christmas is over but cherish the memories that were made. I have to remind myself the same thing and it usually helps combat the after Christmas blues. Come visit us here when you are feeling down.

    I will pray that you have a worry free 2013! Take care and God Bless!

    Merry Christmas Mom And Dad

    That's beautiful and I guarantee you that your parents are very proud of you! You have a lot of compassion that I am sure you learned from your parents and they are praising you for it right this very minute!

    I remember you mentioning how your dad looks like George C. Scott. Now every time I see that Christmas Carol movie I think of you and your dad.

    Thanks for sharing the letter to your parents. God Bless you, Louanne!

    God And The Higgs Boson

    A lot of scientists, in particular physicists, believe that everything that is in the universe just "happened" out of nothing all on its own. I don't buy that. It does not make one bit of sense to me. The universe is so complex, I am disovering, it could not have just "happened" out of the blue on its own. Something, in this case a very wise someone started everything happening.

    Thank you for putting my thoughts into words, CM3!

    God And The Higgs Boson

    I was going to research this, after you mentioned it to me the other day, to see what Higgs boson was. Very interesting but I am like you, I believe in God as our creator.

    Thanks for sharing!
