Some Quotes

I LOVE quotes... I just love when someone can say something really meaningful in a short sentence. Anyway, I was hunting for a quote for a page I'm making when I came across these... :) I think most of them are by Dr. Seuss who had an amazing way with words!

"And that Yopp…That one small, extra Yopp put it over! Finally, at last! From that speck on that clover. Their voices were heard! They rang out clear and clean. And the elephant smiled. “Do you see what I mean?…They’ve proved they ARE persons, no matter how small. And their whole world was saved by the smallest of All!” “How true! Yes, how true,” said the big kangaroo.“And, from now on, you know what I’m planning to do?…From now on, I’m going to protect them with you!”And the young kangaroo in her pouch said…“…ME, TOO!”“From the sun in the summer. From rain when it’s fall-ish, I’m going to protect them. No matter how small-ish!”

"Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way."

"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities."-- Dr. Seuss

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

"One of the hardest things to teach a child is that the truth is more important than the consequences.

“We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

Thanks!! :)

Cyndi wanted me to pass this on to all of you who have been following their story and praying...

"Please thank all your friends for the prayers and concern. I've even received some messages from them on the blog. Such wonderful sweet ladies!"

Thank you, and keep praying!! This little family is really needing God's extra special blessing right now!!

And, if you are like me, I love pictures... and here are some VERY precious ones!! Just look at those little eyes!!! :) Keep fighting, Chloe!!!

Scrapbooking Again!!!

I have been sick for the last couple days and just needed to relax... So, I have been busy using some of the new goodies from TaylorMade and Paisley Press (Oscraps) and Syrin (Catscrap)! Click on images for credits!

Today, I got up from a nap with Ari and found 2 new books from a series that I was reading near my computer! Jason had gone to Target and gotten them as a suprise... Isn't that so sweet?!
Kylie seems to be fighting off the germs and is the only one that isn't sick... Poor Jas had to work all day today in spite of feeling bad.
Seems like my friends are having a terrible weekends... I feel so bad for everyone. I hope this week brings a lot of happiness their way!! Cyndi texted me tonight and said that there is hope for Chloe... So, that is a huge answer to prayer!! Last night, Jas just hugged me and prayed with me while I sobbed... I just can't even imagine having to see your baby like that...
I need to get busy on pictures again... just haven't felt up to concentrating on it...
And, since school started, I'm just "Mom" instead of "Mommy"... It makes me sad... Kylie has been trying to switch all summer; but now, I think it's official. :(

The girls and I have been listening to a CD from our church lately, and I love the words to this song... They ask me to play this one over and over in the van because it's one that they know from Sunday School. This is a version from YouTube... (see sidebar)

Cyndi's blog

You have to read this... . My friend Cyndi and her little family are going through so much... They need your prayers.

Here's my prayer for Cyndi for today... I couldn't visit with her today... Ari and I are feeling sick, and I don't want to risk giving it to them. We were going to meet for lunch at the park...

God, I know you know what is going on and you really care. I feel so bad for Cyndi, Dave, Solana, and Chloe. It seems like they just have one bad thing after another and they must be so tired. Please make Chloe strong. Please help her grow in an amazing way this week. Please comfort Cyndi and keep her safe as she drives back and forth. Please help her to know she's doing her best and give her peace. Please help Solana at school. Help her to have fun and keep her from catching any sicknesses. Please be with Dave- give him extra strength to make it through work and moving and being able to support his family. God, please give little Leila a hug from us. Please wrap your arms around this little family and be extra close to them today. I love you. Amen.
