Always Have A Dream

Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

I Love My Flowers

The flowers have really started blooming in the last week. My rose bushes are starting to bloom together, they've only been planted for a couple years, it will take another year or two before they really get bigger.
These pink roses are by far my favorite, and they smell awesome!!
My Dad gave me some tiny shoots from his red rose bush last summer, I can't belive how much they've grown in just the last year.
I just got these Canna Lilies this year, never had them before, I think they are really pretty!
Ok I'll only bore you with just one more, my Reblooming Day Lilies.
Hope everyone has a great day!!

Friday Foto Finish Fiesta - Cody's Last Day Of School

 Cody's last day was pretty fun for him, even though it was only a half-day. Some of us parents got together and had a little party for that last day. Their teacher had no idea, and while the kids were in the cafateria for an assembly, we were setting up the room. We also pooled some money together to get Mrs. Blake something.
After the party & for the last half-hour of school we all went outside and all the kids got their favorite teacher with silly string!!!
They all had a great time. And Mrs.Blake... I think she took it very well, she thought it was funny!!

Makes My Monday - Mike's Commendation

I think I've mentioned once or twice that I've been having problems posting pictures, don't know why. Anyway, this was from the week before last. Mike received this commendation, along with his crew. They were on a house fire with a neighboring Department and together they saved someone from that fire. Well, when something like this happens, they have a small service and present each firefighter with a plaque, congratulating/thanking them for their help in saving a life. I just wanted him to know how proud of him I am, and that 'Makes My Monday'.
