Was Down but now I'm UP.

Posted 10-27-2008 at 07:09 AM by Christmas Snow Angel

Wow...this economy has really gotten me down. I've been away from the site for a couple of weeks because just the thought of spending money for Christmas depressed me. Trying to find a job...but thats like finding a needle in a hay stack around here. One bright note my husband did receive a small raise on his paycheck.

I need to pull up my boot straps and get back out there. I need to give it all to God and he'll take care of the rest. I have to have faith and I have to believe that things will get better not only for my family but for everyone.

I'm feeling better about Christmas now. I some how truly forgot the real reason behind Christmas. And that real reason has came back to me and has made me feel so much better.

I believe because I have my faith back now, He has come through for my family. Out of the blue yesterday I received a call from a couple who attends church with my family. They decided to buy each of my daughters a American Girl...

Our Life Stories

Posted 10-21-2008 at 12:45 PM by Ms_Speedy_Elf

If you think about it each person on the face of this earth has a life story to tell.It may not be as interesting as the last person's story that truly touched our heart,but never the less it is OUR story and it is what made us who we are. We would learn these stories if only we weren't so judgmental of the way a person looked or acted. We would come to see each other in a new light ,a different perspective and accept someone for who they truly are ,rather than how our mind's have perceived them to be.

Remembering Grandma & Grandpa

Posted 10-16-2008 at 08:30 AM by Ms_Speedy_Elf

I have the fondest memories of my maternal grandparent's.(I think that what your mom's parent's are called)

I used to spend the weekends with them and when school was out stay with them the entire time.

My grandma was a sweet little lady .Only about 5 foot tall and didn't even weigh 100 lbs. She says the only time she ever weighed more was when she was pregnant.Grandma was feisty and didn't like to loose when she played card's. To give you a visual idea ,she kinda looked like Granny Clampett.I remember when she cooked her spagetti and made her own sauce ,using enough garlic that it would ward of the vampire's .(smile)

Grandpa was gentle,kind hearted man. Never heard him say an ill word about anyone. He always wore bib bib alls and when he went outside he wore a straw hat. I can most recall him setting at the dining room table playing solitaire or working the crossword puzzle in the news paper. He used Carnation milk on his Honeycombs cereal.Such...

Why Feel Sorry forCharlie Brown

Posted 10-15-2008 at 08:09 PM by MerryChristmasLydio

[B][FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=4][COLOR=red]I got to thinking the other day about how bad Charlie Brown's life is. :D If you think about it all he gets for Halloween is rocks, Valentine's Day candy hearts that say "I Hate U," and for Christmas he just doesn't get it. I feel bad for Charlie Brown. Don't you? LOL!:lol:[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][/B]

What is in the box?

Posted 10-14-2008 at 08:53 PM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

I have been adjusting to a major job shift since June. It has me traveling a lot more. Since the end of May I have had just one full week at home. Tonight I write via laptop from Los Angeles.

My wife tells me that today we received a big box in the mail addressed to me.

That's very strange.

Like most traveling family guys I'm sometimes a stranger in my own home. When the phone rings it is never for me (I have teenagers).

My wife handles the bills and I rarely see anything from the mail box.

Our eldest daughter has long moved out but all her junk mail comes to my house. She gets more than I do.

So the receipt of the box today is unusual.

In the past my company had occasion to send things to my house. But that was when I didn't have a staffed office.

I've now got offices in Salt Lake City, Anaheim and San Francisco. If the company had mail, they wouldn't send it to my house...
