Random stuff

Sammy now has his permit. He passed with flying colors. I asked him if he wanted to drive home and he said no. He has had his permit for 4 days now and not once has he wanted to go out and drive. He is so much like me. I did the exact same thing. I was terrified to drive at first. Once I started though I was never home.

I also want to brag about my daughters boyfriend Seth. He had the most beautiful flowers sent to the house for her on Valentines Day. After the flowers were delivered to Kelsey Mike asked her if it was Valentines Day. Duh! So my gift was a quick trip to the dollar store to find something that represented love. My husband is just not very romantic. Hope everyone elses husbands did better than mine. LOL.

Last night a dear friend of mine was the witness speaker at the EDWE emmaus gathering. She did a fantastic job and really opened my eyes about something I have been struggling with. That is the fact that God does not give up on people. I may want to after so many years of being frustrated with someone but isn't it wonderful to know that God NEVER does. Whenever we are ready HE will be there waiting with open arms. If a situation with a loved one is not going the way we want it to we also have to Let go and Let God. That is hard to do for someone who is a control freak and trying to always fix everything. God is the only one who can truly change us.

I also want to give a shout out (or shoot out as Amy would say) to Brandon Heith Beard. Today is his birthday. He is an awesome kid that I adore so I pray that he has a wonderful day. I love you "bubbles".
