It's hard to believe...

March is almost over. Next week my oldest son will be out of school. It won't be long before he's out for the summer. It seems like time is flying faster and faster each year.

Anyway, I want to tell you about what is going on with my program. I've had two different people offer me some graphics. One guy is willing to draw some by hand and mail them to me. I can't wait until I get it so I can show you his work. The other person is going to send me some clipart for this. I think this is great. I get so tired of seeing the same old pictures all the time. I've been doing the page for April and have mailed it off to the places they are supposed to go to. There are times I wish I could see the children's faces as they recieve the pages I send them, but I understand why they have the rules they do. The children are much more important that me in this situation. I know they enjoy them, I only wish I could do more. These children have suffered so much already. I wish I could take away all the pain and suffering that they have to go through. It's not fair that these children have to go through what they do in the hopes that something will either cure them or at least stop or slow down the disease that is robbing them of a long life. There is no way I can understand what they or their parents are going through. I've never been through it. Yes my nephew has cancer, but that is not the same thing as it being my own child. Don't get me wrong, I love my nephew, but I imagine that it is different for a parent to be going through something like this instead of an aunt. I hope that's make sense to you.

Yes, I'm in one of my moods. It's almost midnight here and I'm sitting up watching this show about mistreated animals. It makes me sick to know that people can mistreat children or animals. They can't defend themselves. They depend on us to defend them. At least a dog can bite when mistreated. A child can't do that. Why would someone hurt a child? Children are a gift! A blessing! They are all so precious. Even when mine misbehave, I love them. I may spank them for being bad, but I would never hurt them like I see sometimes on TV. I do not verbally abuse my children. In some ways that is worse than physical abuse. At least a beating will stop hurting, verbal abuse can stay with a child for the rest of their lives. I don't get it. I guess this is one of those things that I will never understand.

Anyway, I'm going to stop for now and try to get some sleep. I hope you have a good weekend.

God's blessings to you always.

Have you ever found a great site and just couldn't wait to share?

I found this great forum. They are some of the nicest people there. They really care about you. Have a worry? Post it. There are sure to be someone that will help you through it. Just need to vent, you can do that there as well. It's really a great place. These people make me feel welcome. The place is Beware though this place can be addictive.

Now on to the program. I'm looking for contacts at children's hospitals to set up this program with. Do you happen to know of anyone that would be willing to let me send these coloring pages to them for the children? It does not cost the hospitals anything. I handle all of the cost. All they have to do is pass them out to the children when they come in. If you do know anyone, please email me at I would welcome any help you can give me in this area!

Also, I should be getting a new picture of my nephew soon, so check back. As soon as sis sends it to me, I'll put it here for everyone to see.

God's blessings to everyone.

Email trouble

I am about to go nuts. The email account that goes with this page is driving me crazy right now. For some reason it got change and I have no idea why. I've now got it to where I can check it now but have no idea how to change the password to something that I want. But I'm working on that. The company that does the support for this has been very helpful and patient with me and is trying to find the problem.

Anyway, I thought I'd let you know what has been going on here. Not a thing. Truthfully. Jimmy, my husband got laid off for a week but he'll be going back to work Monday. He's just too good at what he does to know how to do a slow job just to kill time so he could have a check this week. Just so you know, he's in construction and considering how long he's been doing this kind of work, I'm not really suprised. He was taught how to do this by his family. So he learned the old way, the right way. He believe that a job should be done correct the first time.

Why don't we see this attitude more? Anyway, things will be back to normal soon, at least as back to normal as things can be around this house.

I hope things are going great for you. God bless you.
