Your kids are watching

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure I have told my share of lies in my short 4o years and I'm sure I have done things in front of my kids that I should not have done, but....
So on Friday I got up early to take Michael to get some clothes for his upcoming Stock Show and to go get the licence plates for my NEW CAR. While I was getting ready my sister called and said she wanted to go. So we were ready but she wasnt. So I thought I would go to the car wash and wash my car so that the people at the car dealership wouldnt think I was a horrible Car Keeper. So Michael and I wiped the car down and made it look pretty good.
We picked up Stephanie at Brookshires and headed off to town. We stopped by my Mom's work first and had a visit with her and Marty. I always like going to visit my mom at work. Plus she gives me stuff. This time I got a really neat insulated bag and some candy!! Like I need that
Anyway, we then went to get Michael some shirts at the Western Warehouse. Try saying that without singing the song! lol
He got 4 really nice shirts but at 40% off he still spent 90.00 dollars. Wow being a cowboy can be expensive.
None of that really had to do with anything that I want to say other than washing the car knowing that it was in perfect standing when we were done. So here is the real reason for my post...
We went and ate at On The Border and when we were done we went to the car and Michael said Mom there is a dent in your car. I said noway and got out to inspect. Well, what are the chances of the people next to you still being in the car. Slim right. Well I just stand there and look at the dent not believing I have a NEW CAR and it already has a dent in it. My luck. So I look up and the lady throws her hands in the air and says "I didnt do it". Now mind you I didnt ask her if she did it. So here is this WHITE VAN parked next to me and my car sitting there with a big dent with WHITE paint.
I said to her "it's a new car, you did it"!!!
I look in the back seat of her car and there sat a little boy. Probably 8 or 9 years old. Just sitting there looking at me.
I wasnt going to shoot her or anything. I didnt even accuse her of doing it.
So now we have another child in this world who thinks it's ok to lie to get your way out of trouble. That is what bothers me the most!!!
I guess God needed to teach me that lesson.

First Time Blogger

Hello all,
I'm not really good at expressing my thoughts and feelings. I am a person who normally keeps my feeling to myself. Not that I don't want to share, I just don't always think I have anything interesting to say or share. Believe me there is alot going on in my head!! My friend Candi suggested I start blogging so here I am. I went to her page and cried then I went to her friends and read thier posts and cried some more. There is so much to learn from other people. It is so nice to read how God works in other people's life.
So I am really glad Christmas is over. I like Christmas, it has always been one of my favorite times of the year but it seems like the older I get and the older my kids get the harder it is. I just wish I could do all the things I want to do for the boys and for the people that mean so much to me. I lost my Grandmother 5 years ago on Christmas day. I miss her alot. She was an angel on earth. I can't wait to see her again. I can't tell you how many times I have just wanted to smell her or to touch her hands. I know that sounds weird but hopefully it's understandable.
My dad isn't doing so well with his knees. Last Friday the roof was flying off one of his sheds. He called Michael to come help him fix it but Michael was not home. I guess my dad thought he could do it himself and fell off the ladder. He hurt both knees. He had knee replacement surgery on one knee a couple of years ago. We almost lost him then. He got a blood clot and a staph infection. Anyway, he has been a little stubborn on going to the doctor. Now he REALLY needs to go and can't get in until Wednesday. Needless to say he needs prayers. I pray that God eases his pain and that Daddy forgives himself for crawling up that ladder.
Today I learned that just because something or somebody is not important to me does not mean that it is not important to someone else.

Love always,
