Oh the Joy

I love when I have cleaned and mopped the kitchen, it seems like the rest of the house can follow suit and become magically clean too. I especially love going back into the kitchen to find a footprint in the sugar that was spilled on the floor probably just seconds after the mop was put away.

Lessons Learned

2008 was a year of lessons for me to learn. Lessons with an S at the end.
Lesson one: Learning to cope with a child in the hospital.
Lesson two: Having to say goodbye to a favorite car.
Lesson three: I can't always help everyone with everything.
Lesson four: Real Estate can be a very ugly game to play.
Lesson five: Difficult times can mean blessings later down the road.
Lesson six: Really loving being a wife and mom.
Lesson seven: Appreciating good health and happiness for in-laws.
Lesson eight: Courage to call and go visit a very angry lady.
Lesson nine: (still learning) why these lessons were taught all in one year. Maybe I'm a fast learner. Ha!
Lesson ten: The miracle of forgiveness between friends and the love our Heavenly Father has for us.
Lesson eleven: That there were plenty more lessons and there will always be plenty more, just hopefully they won't be the same lessons over and over again.

Tickets to the Liquor Store

Explanation on the quotes for Mr. Jewels birthday:
"Don't act like you don't know who it be neither." is from that Go shorty, It's your birthday song by fitdy cent and "tickets to the liquor store" is what Mr. Jewels thought they were saying in a Nelly song when they actually say "Nelly can we get tickets to the next show." So there you have it. Just some of the things that make us laugh. Also the date on the picture is all wrong, should be around October of 2008. I didn't take the time to change the time.

Happy Birthday Mr. Jewels!
You are a fabulous husband and father and best friend.
Here are some of my favorite things I like about you:
"Don't act like you don't know who it be neither."
"Tickets to the Liquor Store"
Clapping your hands in church when we were asked to by show of hands sustain someone.
Your laugh when you get tickled. Especially when all three of us get you.
Your Smile and dimples.
Your Kisses.
Your Name Curse.
That you always come home to me.
Last, but not least, everthing.
