People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.

Like Mother Like Daughter

Sophie is a funny girl. She has started a tradition that I started years ago....sticking things up the nose. When I was little I loved to stick things up my nose. One day I stuck a bean up there and we never got it out, even with a trip to the doctor. Maybe that's why I'm a little funny in the must have sprouted.

So anyway, after a lunch of macaroni and cheese I noticed 2 hollow noodles sticking out of Sophie's nostrils and she was posed to stick another up there. Then a few days ago we were eating chicken noodle soup and I see noodles coming out of her nose. I think she was trying to dig them out because a while later she got a bloody nose. One morning she sneezed and out came a big, green, crayon wrapper and we had colored the day before!! Now she has added shoe laces and raisins to the list. What am I to do with that girl?!?!?

We are in AZ visiting my family because Kandra is blessing her baby. He is a cutie. Regan has really gotten into babies (real ones, not dolls). She loves to touch and kiss them and it is so sweet to watch her. She wrinkles up her little nose and says in a high squeaky voice, "Look at the little baby. He's so cute with his tiny little toes."

Regan is my little nature girl. She loves to be outside and explore nature and find animals. (Sophie just loves to be outside because I think she is kind of a tom boy.) So Regan kind of has a thing for rocks and my mom has a small bowel full of beautiful rocks. This morning she reached up to them on the shelf and said, "I want to hold those with my two little hands mama." She cracks me up sometimes. It's these funny little things that help to keep me going.

Catherine was the winner of the pendant. Congrats!! I'll get it to you when I see you next. You can get one too at I am running a 2 get 1 free!

I'm excited for the pendant! How long will you be running your special? I want to buy one for each of my sisters, and with the third for free, it would be a fun surprise for my mom. I'll talk to you more about it when you get back home. Plus, I'll need to borrow Season 3 of The Office! ;)

PS) Sophie cracks me up! I can't BELIEVE she's sticking stuff up her nose. Too funny!

Hey girl! I miss you!
I hope you are doing great, we KNOW that you are ENTERTAINED at least! So, Megan, a girl in my Hygiene class had a blog entry that said if something gets stuck up the nose,plug the other side and blow into your child's mouth, now that sounds gross, but if your in a bind and don't want to go to the ER, TRY it! Love ya!
