Happy Birthday, Mother Dear!

Hey mom! So today didn't go quite like it was supposed to. We were going to stop into the store and sing to you...and that didn't happen (but it sounded like other, better, family members stopped by and called). So, I thought that even though I called you super late I would let you know that . . . .

Some BUNNIES love you!

We aren't bunnies, but we love you too!

Thanks for being a great mother! Here's to many more years!

New Blog Post

I know, I know...it's been a couple months. And we've done things that should have been blogged, but life happens, and blogging doesn't. And this blog post isn't about much of anything, but I'm reading this book called, "Same Kind of Different As Me" and I really like part of it and wanted to keep the quote, but didn't know where to put it...so I decided to blog it :) So mom and Andrea, this blogs for you!

This book is about a homeless man that was a "modern day" slave, and a rich man. They are having coffee at a Starbucks and the homeless man, Denver, sees Ron's key chain filled with keys and he asks, "I know it ain't none of my business, but does you own somethin that each one of them keys fits?"

I glanced at the keys; there were about ten of them. "I suppose," I replied, not really ever having thought about it.

"Are you sure you own them, or does they own you?"

That wisdom stuck to my brain like duct tape. The more I thought about it, the more I became convinced we'd enjoy life a whole lot more if we owned a whole lot less.
