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.

My Son and His Talent : Makes My Monday

Cody hasn't used this chalk board in a long time. But he had me bring it up from the basement last week. He's been using it for practicing his math for school. The other night he was busy at it, and I wasn't paying attention to what he was doing. Well with the holidays soon approaching he's been thinking about Christmas (apparently). This is what he drew, and this "Makes My Monday".

Visit & play along with Make My Monday

School Picture

  I never thought we would receive Cody's school pic's, but we finally got them last week. The first pic's with his glasses on. He was really excited about it. I can't believe how big he's getting!! I wish I could snap my fingers and keep him the way he is! I also wish I could keep myself from getting older. The gray hair, and sagging face. Oh well, life goes on, I'll get used to it.
  I got my hair cut the other day, and she asked me where I wanted my hair parted, and I said the side to cover up all the gray patches! They say the 40 is the new 20..... I don't know if I beleive it or not. I remember when I was little, I always wished I could grow older faster, now sometimes I wish I could go back and not have to worry about taking care of family, working. Not that it's a bad thing, but just to have that free spirit, to play and to have fun. Don't get me wrong, I love my family, and wouldn't trade them for the world. I would just like to be able to have that child like spirit, and imagination again. Wouldn't  it be great?

Where Does The Time Go?

  I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted anything! A lot has been going on. Cody's doing good in school. He just got over a middle ear infection that moved into an upper respiratory infection, this was about a couple weeks ago. Mike was chosen to take some classes in Alabama put on by the Department of Homeland Security. He was gone the last week of October (the week Cody was sick), and again this last week, infact he just got back yesterday.
  Is this coming week really Thanksgiving already!?!?!?! I can't wait to spend time with family, and eat all the yummy food that were going to have! The only thing now is thinking about getting ready for x-mas!! We haven't even started our shopping. It seems to be the norm every year!! Anyone else in the same boat? It seems like it gets harder and harder to buy gifts for people, not knowing what to get.
  Hope everyone had a good weekend, and has a good week to come! Take care!
