Fathers Are Wonderful People

Fathers are wonderful people
too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
as often as we should...
For, somehow, Father seems to be
the man who pays the bills,
While Mother binds up little hurts
and nurses all our ills...
And Father struggles daily
to live up to "his image"
As protecctor and provider
and "hero of the scrimmage"...
And perhaps that is the reason
we sometimes get the notion
That Fathers are not subject
to the thing we call emotion,
But if you look inside Dad's heart,
where no one else can see,
You'll find he's sentimental
and as "soft" as he can be...
But he's so busy every day
in the grueling race of life,
He leaves the sentimental stuff
to his partner and his wife...
But Fathers are just wonderful
in a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
and accolades of praise,
For the only reason Dad aspires
to fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
and to bring them happiness...
And like Our Heavenly Father,
he's a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
to be always on our side.

Dad, thank you for always being there for me and believing in me. You will never know how much that has meant to me through my entire life.
I love you Dad!!
Your #1 daughter ;)

Home for Sale

My goodness, it's been a little while. Well, nothing spectacular has happened, but mostly I've just been busy. Today is the start of 9 days off though! WhooHoo! But don't envey me too much, I took the time off to work on my house. I absolutely HAVE to get this house on the market! So I am going to spend this time cleaning and packing. I don't have the money to put into it, so no painting, tiling or anything extreme, but just enough to get it in shape to show. Just thinking about it makes me anxious. I have quite a job ahead of me. But by the end of next week I WILL have a 'for sale' sign in my yard!

I noticed the quote of the day on my sidebar, and I thought I would change it slightly.

"If you have faith, let others light their candle at it."

Please Keep Your Hands Out of My Cookie Jar!

There are a few things in life that I can't tolerate. Some things, like foul language, gossip, and inappropriate jokes I really don't like, but stealing is over the line. Taking something that does not belong to you, something that someone else has worked hard for, or means a lot to someone is unexusable. It's violating. This past week I had my 4-wheeler stolen. It was taken out of the back garage. I didn't ride it a lot, but it was mine and it was worth more than I can afford now to replace it. It's just the fact that someone took it. It stinks. I've reported it to the police, but there is not much hope in recovering it. Hope your week is going better!
