Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everybody!

Christmas Comes

Christmas comes with children singing,

Christmas comes with sleigh bells ringing,

Christmas comes with frosty nights,

Christmas comes with snowball fights.

Christmas comes with Santa Claus,

Christmas comes with snowy floors,

Christmas comes with robins and reindeer,

Chsitmas comes with a hearty cheer.

Christmas comes with gold, frankincense and myrrh,

Christmas comes with Jesus' birth,

Christmas comes with angels from afar,

Christmas comes with a wondrous star.

Christmas comes now, at last,

Christmas comes, like in the past,

Christmas comes after such a long wait,

Christmas comes and it will be great.

A Sad Anniversary

It's hard to believe it hass been 11 years since the dreadful day the Twin Towers were hit. I remember as if it were yesterday, waking up to the news of this evil. I was terrified it was the end of the world.The tragedy brought me closer to my family and friends because I was worried this wickedness would strike close to home. My heart goes out to those who lost their loved ones to this atrocity. I pray for them and I pray that it never happens again.

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day. I am so grateful to be an American and so grateful to our dear soldiers. So many have given up their precious time with their families, their limbs, and even their lives, so that we can live our lives in freedom. When I read of all the atrocities that go on in other countries I am saddened and humble for all we have. I pray for our American soldiers and their families, that they come home safe and get to enjoy the freedom they have given us.

Happy Mother's Day!

I am so blessed to be a daughter to my mom. She is such a fantastic person. At 70, she is still going strong. She keeps an immaculate home, bakes the most wonderful goodies, and still mows the yard herself. I am also blessed to be a mom to my three lovely adult children. I am also blessed to be a grandmother. When I count my blessings, I can't believe how lucky I am! I wish all of you a happy mother's day!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter and happy spring! The sun is actually shining a bit today, though it's cold. I love this time of year and wish it would last longer, but spring in Oregon is fleeting. May all the joys of this glorious season be yours.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Irish Eyes
by Chaucey Olcott and George Graff, Jr.

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Tis like a morn in spring.
With a lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing
When Irish hearts are happy
All the world is bright and gay
When Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, they steal your heart away.

Nothing New to Report

I have been looking for work for months and have had no luck at all. I have sent in many resumes and joined a temp agency. I have had only one interview and that didn't pan out. I am getting so discouraged! Also, I gained three pounds! If anybody knows somebody who is hiring in the Portland, Oregon metro area, let me know please!As long as they don't mind somebody with slightly chubby thighs lol.

Happy Groundhog Day

Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow,which means 6 more weeks of winter! This is supposed to be bad news, but to me it means I still have 6 weeks to lose a few pounds before warmer weather sets in and it's time to bare more skin.
