President Obama's Address to Congress

"...and if we do – if we come together and lift this nation from the depths of this crisis; if we put our people back to work and restart the engine of our prosperity; if we confront without fear the challenges of our time and summon that enduring spirit of an America that does not quit, then someday years from now our children can tell their children that this was the time when we performed, in the words that are carved into this very chamber, "something worthy to be remembered." Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America."

Me and My Boys!

I had to post this picture of me and my favorite fuzzy boys!
My sister Heather got the shot with my new Nikon that Ian gave me for my birthday.{Thank you, Ian, you are THE best hubby a girl could want!}
I love these goofy ponies and feel so good when I get time to hang with them.
I can't wait for Spring!!!
{Please pardon Sam's feet for I desperately need to trim them! It's on my list.}

I Love This Quote

"You have striven so hard, and so long, to compel life. Can't you now slowly change, and let life slowly drift into you... let the invisible life steal into you and slowly possess you." D.H. Lawrence

I'll be back...

To those of you who read my blog, I do apologize for lack of new posts. I have been so busy, I don't even know where to begin. Between school, home, extended family, and raising a teenager, I'm so overwhelmed I want to cry!
But, rest assured, I will add something soon. And know that I would much rather use my limited amounts of time to catch up on your life's adventures than to post on my own!
So, you guys-please keep up the good work. Your blogs are an inspiration to me to keep my chin up and carry on! Whether it's Laughing Orca's tenacity, Fantastyk Voyage's courage, Pablo Neruda's World's soul, Hill Shepherd's amazing sense of history, Shaggy Shack's humor,or any other of the blogs I read but did not mention- you all add bright spots to my day, and I thank you sincerely!
