Good Morning!
Trying to get over this hacking cough! Getting the kids off to school. Kids have D-Now this weekend, Disciple Now, our church is the hub for over 400 teens from all over the Southeast coming together this weekend for March Missions Madness. Should be a great time for the kids. Hugging my kids a little tighter today. My dear friend that I visited in CA last week, things have gotten worse with her son and they have had him non-voluntarily admitted to the hospital for evaluation. Please pray for her whole family, they are really struggling and my heart is breaking for her. The husband is supposed to start a job in TX this month, he was going to travel back and forth for a year so the son can graduate HS in CA. now he is telling his boss he can't move, they don't want to disrupt the son, but maybe he needs a fresh start/disruption from what he is currently involved in, just praying they find the right path for their family.
Wishing everyone a great day and start to the weekend.
Thoughts and prayers for those in need.
Happy Birthday Mike!

morning, overcast but 57, i'll take it!

hopefully today will go as fast as the week went. my sister is having what im guessing is teenage boy issues. my nephew billy who is a life scout and soooo close to eagle didnt turn his final paperwork in at wednesdays meeting. his excuse was her handwritten notes were there and he didn't want it to look like she did the work. she wrote those notes for him to remember what he needed to ask as they didn't understand one of the tasks. now with baseball he probably won't be able to make the meetings to finish. she is beside herself. they had a deal, he makes eagle they pay all of his college. if not they don't give him a dime. his grades have also slipped, not like him at all. she let him have it after his game yesterday, told him she's embarrassed and disappointed in him and her parenting. he has disrespected them and everything they do for him/them (yes they are extremely spoiled). She was in tears, i felt so bad for her. im tempted to text him but will give it some time. i hope he makes the right decision, if only for my sister.

carolina, so sorry for your friends son, makes my sisters issues look like such a non-issue. kids have so much social pressure i honestly don't know how most of them keep it together.

Happy birthday Mike. tiki bar opens today, hmmmmmm

Good morning all. Slept late today. Must have been all the walking at the flower show which was a rip off. IT was a $17.00 admission and they only had 4 displays from 4 landscapers, everything else was like a flea market. Vendors everywhere. Even Nancy said "never again" this is terrible. I was a genius to take her. NEVER AGAIN. Best words I have heard in a long time.
Carolina, so sorry about your friends issues. Praying for them that all gets better.
Linda, hope your
sisters son doesn't have other issues he is not talking to your sister about and things get straightened out.
Have a great day all and be well

Unsolicited advice Linda....something is up with nephew...maybe afraid of failure, social issues, etc....someone needs to spend time with him (could be a professional if he wishes) and let him reveal what's bothering him....will take time to let him talke but worth it! hugs

Man, having been through the teenage years with two boys, my heart breaks for these stories. I try to remind myself everyday how fortunate we were/still are. Relatively no trouble with our boys. Let's just pray it stays that way for us and gets better for others.

Good Morning. Back from a walk before the t-storms start. Matthew had a friend over last night, so I see pancakes and bacon in my immediate future.

Have a good one.

Good morning! Karen, that weather bomb mostly missed us except for the high winds. Colorado got a blizzard and Nebraska is under water. Colorado is used to all the snow but the photos of the flooding in Nebraska I've seen are awful. But there won't be any stray alligators.

Pat, happy birthday to Mike!

My sister is emailing...time to go

Good Morning!!! Lots of clouds this morning with showers in the forecast but it's 53°F which should melt the rest of the white stuff still piled next to the driveway. We have to make a Costco run today but not much else planned.
Thoughts and prayers for those in need today.
Have a great Friday everyone!!!
