Belief in Mankind renewed!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

I saw the sweetest thing today that just renewed my faith in mankind. My daughter and I were sitting in the living room and a car stopped in front of the house, and a teen got out, actually 3 of them did. They walked to the side of the road and then two of them walked back to the car, but didn't get it, the other stood at the side. we decided to go out and see what was going on, and as we got closer, the one near the side of the road explained that a tiny kitten had been sitting in the middle of the road and they wanted to put it in the ditch so it wouldn't get hit.

I nearly start tearing up, that just never happens anymore, most people would run it down, but to see 3 teen boys stop and actually get out of their car to help a helpless little kitten was incredible. I'm so proud of them, they will grow up to be men to look up to, that's for sure, if they aren't already. I know I look up to them.

It certainly renews you're belief in mankind, I'm so happy there are still a lot of good teens in the world like them, that means our future is in good hands, and I thank God for showing me this today. And most of all, I thank them for showing their true selves to us, I'm so proud of them, and they should be proud of themselves.

Remember, never ever judge anyone by how they look, because you never know what they're truly like inside, the outside never reveals what the inside is like.

Have a glorious day, everyone, I certainly will. emoticon

Spring Cleaning....late

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I'm washing ALL the bed linens today, wow, didn't realize how much there was, and somewhere I have hidden another set of sheets for our room, but I can't find them...just like I can't find the extra test strips I had to test my blood sugar. Funny how things just tend to vanish, isn't it. :D

Anyway, it's a beautiful day today, and I have to get my butt in gear and get my exercises done. I hope you all enjoy the day and show that beautiful smile to's fun to share!

    I live alone (and love it) when I "lose" things, I always know God knows where I put it and I ask Him to help me find it!

I'm getting a late start on my spring cleaning as well...but unless I tell on myself, no one knows since it's just me and Jesus at my place. I have what I call "Pick a Project" day...and when I am really ambitious, I may choose three! LOL

Be blessed my friend!

Summer's Here

Monday, June 10, 2013

Wow, it's actually a "summer" day here today, complete with the humidity, but hey, I wanted summer and that's our summers here. Now just to get the pool cleaned up so we can swim in it..if it gets warm.

I remember the days when I'd have to jump in the pool before bed, just to cool off enough to sleep. I miss those days/nights, but oh well

Oh, for the trip, I made sure we had hotels with pools so I could get in my exercise, I believe they all have exercise rooms too.. I'm a little nervous about going to NC with my daughter alone, because normally when we travel, we all go together. I guess it makes me feel more secure with my husband around, I'll miss him, especially on my birthday. Oh well, I'll enjoy the time with our daughter.

I hope you all have a great week ahead, and a wonderful today. emoticon

    Before I got so sick I would travel by myself but would rather have had Bill with me. My longest trip was Florida to NC to Virginia.
Enjoy the time with your daughter. Be glad she wants you around

I'm so happy for our son, he finally got to see one of the "heritage" engines he's been trying to get for months, if not a year. He takes such good pictures, I wish he'd take my suggestion and make a book of them all, he knows so much about each engine, it'd be easy for him to do. But he just doesn't want to, I mean with 3-4 BIG photo albums of just the engines he's seen, it'd be such a great book. Here's a few of the photos of the special "heritage" units, as you can see they look quite different than normal Engines of that "line".

Erie RR Heritage NS 1068

Illinois RR Heritage NS 1072

New Jersey RR Heritage NS 1071

New York Central RR Heritage NS 1066

Penn Central RR Heritage NS 1073

Virginia RR Heritage NS 1069

Southern RR Heritage NS 8099

Hope you enjoyed Scott's photos, and I pray you all have a wonderful day!

A Little nicer

Saturday, June 08, 2013

Today isn't too bad of a day, it's supposed to get in the 70's so that's a lot nicer than 50's or 60's, getting closer to summer weather.

I was supposed to go to Franklin Park, IL for the railroad days there, but my son decided to just go to Rochelle instead. I love doing things with him, and our daughter, but sometimes he just likes to go alone, I think. I'm hoping and praying he gets to go out on a date with a friend of his, they had to cancel last night because she had to watch her little sister. So hopefully. I know, I know, moms aren't supposed to talk about things like that, but I love my kids and really feel bad when one is too shy to ask anyone on a date, even though he's got the greatest personality, and definitely isn't into the "bad things"; heck he rarely drinks, but when someone buys him a shot (normally a member of our family) and then it's only 1. He's more of a Pepsi drinker, so he strays away from the other stuff.

Anyway, I sound like I'm doing an ad for him *L* I'm not, but anyway, back to rt stuff, have a wonderful weekend everyone! emoticon
