C is for

Children! We had the grandchildren for 4 days. Samantha and Emilie that is. What a blast. More of a blast for JB and the kids. (I still have this need to be the adult.) He does the being a kid so much better than I. Anyway I did the Granny thing, I took them school shopping. I had already bought Haley a couple of things. (She lives closer so our goal for her is to have her here one day a week, for dinner and to visit after school. It gets her away from her brother, Logan. The last time she was here JB ask her what she was doing, she said she was practicing to become a PRINCESS!
Back to the girls, I took them school shopping for some clothes, just girl time, then JB and the girls got out the Easy Bake oven and baked a cake and cookies. He is a wonderful Grandfather. So, my word for the day is children. If you want to have fun hang out with a kid, they are honest and real, and funny!

B is for

B is for Beauty. Lets see. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Beauty and the Beast. Beauty is as beauty does. Beauty is only skin deep. Big and Beautiful. Is it how one looks? Is it the color of there skin or their eyes, their body size, or shape? Or, does beauty truly come from within? Is it compassion, love, understanding, kindness, thoughtfulness, giving of self.
How do you define beauty?

A is for....

A is for apology. Isn't that a tough thing for many of us to do? I know that I have struggled with this even just recently. I won't go into details of the situation, but I woke up thinking about the situation, every time I turned the TV on, had a quiet moment, whenever, the situation was right there staring at me (nope wasn't with the DH), so I decided to send a note and apologize. I didn't apologize for the disagreement, but for the unkind words I said, and I ask that in time this person may forgive me. I know that forgiveness is a choice, but so is the act of asking for forgiveness.... So my challenge to you is ask for forgiveness when you have offended someone, make that your choice!
