I Believe

I thought this was nice so I wanted to share it enjoy....

I Believe
A birth certificate shows that we were born; a death certificate shows that we died; pictures show that we lived! Have a seat . . . Relax. And read this slowly.
I believe - That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.
I believe - That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
I believe - That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
I believe - That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
I believe - That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
I believe - That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
I believe - That you can keep going long after you think you can't.
I believe - That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
I believe - That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I believe - That money is a lousy way of keeping score.
I believe - That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I believe - That no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.
I believe - That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
I believe - Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
I believe - That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.
I believe - That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
I believe - That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.
I believe - That you should send this to all of the people that you believe in. I just did. The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.

Sowers family dinner

So today was absolutely beautiful I think the last time I looked at the tempature it was 83. LOVED IT!!!!! Anyway.... my mother in law Judy shown here with her sister Margret wanted to have a dinner with her family beyond just her kids. Their baby brother is the man who passed in a prior blog that I asked for you to pray for the family. Well my mother in laws kitchen is upside down right now because she is remodling. None of my in laws really have the room and parking except for maybe my oldest sister in law who by the way left before I got the camera out. So I volunteered our house.

The "cousins" began to act like kids again with their kids which was fun to watch. There was one girl in the mix and I do believe she gave them a run for their money. ALthough she plays football in Auburn and i think she will be playing 8th grade this year.

This is my brother in laws girlfriend Karen. She brought her mom to join us today and I was pleased to meet her. Could these two look anymore alike?

Well this is Karen and Brian and they were picking at each other and I love that I caught them at this moment.

Just a swinging aroung here is my father in law Tommy and my mother in law Judy.

All in all it has been a good Memorial Day weekend. Yesterday we cooked out with my parents at my sisters house and I forgot my camera. Tomorrow is my 13 wedding anniversary. I pray you all have a blessed summer

The Drive in

Well summer time is offically here, at least with what "functions" are starting up. This weekend our drive in opened up. WOO-HOO... In Virginia I think I heard somewhere that there are still more functioning drive- ins than anywhere else in the US. I do know we have 5 within an hour any direction of us that includes the one here in our town. We absolutely love goin and this has become a family tradition in the summer time. We go to this really cool inexpensive burger place that has the best food and take it in, we eat, play ball, goof off just have lots of fun.

This is my sister and her boyfriend my soon to be brother in law. That also is my son (the oldest) sittining in the back of the truck. The back 2 rows are for trucks and SUV's we take it load up and eat and have a blast.

This is my pretty little sister. Although she is not so little anymore and she is taller than I am.She will be married next May I cannot believe that and I cry alot of times when I think about it. We now are more like friends than ever before. We are 12 years apart and we both think it stinks that we were so far apart but hey what could we have done.

Henry sometimes will get out and play ball with the boys. They have alot of fun and you can feel the family atmosphere with the expception of the few who just come to raise cane.

So we saw "Iron Man" it was okay not a favorite for me but not terrible. I would however like to watch it again because it took me forever to get our speaker to work which I think was installed in 1953 when the place opened and I don't think much has been done to them since then!!! ;)

Anyway the same couple that opened the place still works there. The man still runs the gate and you never fail to get a $2.00 bill and his wife still works in the concession stand making those wonderful hot dogs and fries. YUMMY..... So maybe next weekend if my thick skull remembers I will take some pictures of the drive in next weekend which by the way is called the Starlight....

Snow White

So my baby boy Dylan recently had his theatrical debut. He played the Huntsman in the play Snow White. He as did all the kids did an outstanding job. He seemed to really get into what he was doing. So many ladies i work with have complimented him on his performance. I thought I would share a couple of pictures of him. The bunny with him is one of his best friends Simmon Brown. AKA Buck the Bunny one of the forest animals that protected Snow White.

8th Grade Dance

So my oldest Zack attended his 8th grade dance last night Saturday May 17th 2008. The theme was midnight in Paris. They (the PTA) did a wonderful job decorating for the kids. I just wanted to share how handsome my guy looked. I tried really hard not to be a big baby but a few tears slipped down my face.
