Stinky Winky

Can I get an AMEN?
After having the past FIVE days off, it was so hard to get out of the bed this morning.
School is back in session, full swing.
Christmas parties, choir practices, completing all of my homemade Christmas gifts, baking, candy-making, shopping, holiday swap thingie, LOTS to do.
My prayer today is that even though we all are involved in many activities during this time of year, that we do not lose sight of the real reason for Christmas.
I get so aggravated when I see Happy Holidays instead of Merry CHRISTmas!  Maybe I'm old fashioned, but without CHRIST there would be no Christmas!

Well---to us at least!
Big Daddy and myself went to a Chinese restaurant last weekend.  He spit his tea out,  after reading his fortune!
Hopefully you'll find it as funny as we did!
Have a great day!

I realize I haven't blogged in 14 days.  It's ok with me.
Right now I have a lot going on and I'm gearing up for the holidays and a trip to Tennessee soon.

Please set your DVR's tomorrow night for TLC (The Learning Channel) and watch our friends, Freddie and Kay Combs on a TV Show called, "Ton of Love".
Click HERE for more information.
If you look at the pictures included with the article, Freddie and Kay are in #2, #3, and #4.  I can't wait to see this show tomorrow night!  10PM Eastern Time....

To the right are some pictures from my college days with Freddie!
Freddie and I met way back in 1989 while we were freshmen at Mars Hill College.  We were both music majors and instantly became friends.  He is a male form of me and I'm a female form of him.  We're both bossy, demanding, musically inclined, hilarious (well---in our own minds at least), close to our grandparents, Southern and proud, Christians, love to eat, family oriented, and many other things.  One of our favorite things to do when we were in college was to call each other on the phone and just start laughing for no reason.  I'm talking about the kind of laughter that is borderline insanity and you're near peeing your pants, or you've already passed that point and couldn't care less! 
We talk daily on the phone, if possible and I think of him and his wife as our dear friends.  Please make sure you catch their show!  You'll be blessed and glad you did.
Also, I'm asking that y'all pray for my best friend Sharon's mother.  Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer awhile back and is not doing well at all right now.  Last week they drained a little over a liter of fluid from her lungs as she has pneumonia and was having difficulties breathing.  They took her back to the hospital yesterday morning and she is still there.  Please pray for Linda---for peace---for healing---for strength---to feel God's presence.  Please pray also for the medical staff tending to her, and for Linda's dear family.  I have grown up at her house.  Sharon and I were in kindergarten together and are very close.  You know how it is when your best friend's going through a hard time and you want to be right there with them.
Hope you all have a good afternoon!

Hey Y'all!
Well....the football game was a success!  Robbie had so much fun and his half sister was so excited to see him!  They haven't seen him since his birthday in February and so it was nice!
He took her flowers and we celebrated her last home football game as a member of the marching band at our high school!
Below is a picture of him and his sister, Mary.

Robbie and his birth mother, Deanna.  Isn't she beautiful?

I hope y'all have a great day!  I'm home with Robbie.  He threw up yesterday at school and had a fever this morning when we got up.  He's sleeping hard on the couch as I type this.
There's so much I want to type, but I need to stay near him!
Have a wonderful day!
