I found this photo on Tonys' Facebook Page. I don't know why I never saw it before, but I am certainly happy I came across it. It is of Zack and Josh several years ago...when they were still little boys. It's not that they are adults now, they just think they are!!! hee hee!!!

So, this is what happened. My Facebook friends are (were) talking Politics and Religion... Now, I have my own personal views, but I really don't think Facebook is the place to vent them. It seems to me, Facebook is for connecting, and re-connecting with family and friends. It's a place to share our lives with those that live far away. I just love all my friends and family I have re-connected with.

Now, with that being said...I got pissy the other night and wrote on my wall, "I'm getting sick of all the politics and God talk on facebook. Why can't we just get back to telling all the dirt on our friends, neighbors and relatives?".

It was meant to be a humorous way of saying "ENOUGH ALREADY"...and most everyone seemed to "get it".

One of my friends, Steve did more than "get it", he just emailed me with the cutest story. I feel I should share it with you...

A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners. At one house, it seemed obvious someone was at home but no answer came to his repeated knocks. He took out a card and wrote, Revelation 3:20 on the back and stuck it in the door. When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found his card had been returned with the cryptic message, Genesis 3:10. Reaching for his bible to check the citation, and he broke into gales of laughter...

Revelation 3:20, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock.
Genesis 3:10, I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid, for I was naked."

Now that is the kind of God Talk, even I can understand...

Today, Tony graduated from College...I couldn't be prouder of him. As some of you know, he really worked hard to accomplish this. He has been working on it for approx. 25 years. First, he was in the Navy, then married, and last every spare second he has spent preparing his kids for the outside world. He is a remarkable human being...I aspire to be like him. He is my hero.

I love you, Tony...with all my heart!

Tony with Lisa, Zack and Josh

The Gold Tassel means "With Honors"!

This is what it was all about!!

Some of you already know my parents were from the South. With that being said, it goes without saying that they spew'd out Southern Expressions like crazy. My mother was the one we all rolled our eyes at and wondered what was going to come out next. But it was our Fathers sayings that I seem to fall back on when things get crazy at my house.

I remember this one, because my feeling were hurt and I was crying...some playmate had hurt my feeling and I was heart broken. Anyway, I remember my father asking me what was wrong and when I told him he said, "Go back to school tomorrow and kill them with kindness, if that doesn't work, just feel sorry for them, because they are missing out on one great friendship".

At the time I thought he was just being...well...Daddy. But over the years, I have come to realize just how remarkable that advise really was. I have heard it whispered in my ear many times and more often than not, when I listen to it, things go much smother in my life.

I'll share more of Mother and Daddys sayings as time goes by, but this one is an important one and I want all my readers to know how remarkable you are and what your friendship means to me and to everyone you touch.

Love and Kisses
