Friday's Quote

I have two quotes :

"Sucess is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome."
Booker T. Washington

"Show class, have pride and display character. If you do, winning will take care of itself."
Paul Bear Bryant

Today...Joey and I will be helping Andrea move into college at the University of Alabama. This is a new phase all three of us will be moving into.
She is so ready to move into this next phase of her life. Both cars are loaded down and ready to head for "T-Town"! We are Bama Bound!

When I read the quote by Booker T. Washington...it just seem to fit. In this last year our family has gone through so much. Alot of obstacles that I called storms. Thankfully, God saw us through each and every one!!
Paul "Bear" Bryant was a coach for the University of Alabama ...so I had to use one of his quotes. You can apply this to other things besides football. You can't hardly talk about University of Alabama without "Paul Bear Bryant's" name being mentioned at some point. I have a good story about Andrea's first visit to the University of Alabama that I will post on later.

Pray for us ....Andrea is thrilled and happy ....Joey and I while we are happy and proud of Andrea we are also sad.
Andrea is her Daddy's girl and My world!

Okay...it's your turn...do you have some advice for us or a favorite quote to share?

FYI: I have used Andrea's computer since Christmas ...our home computer was infected with what seems like a million viruses. It is being fixed...hopefully soon. So, I now don't have a computer at home... I guess that means I will be on a blog break. I hope by next week to post again. In the mean time.....when you think about us ....say a prayer.

Good Morning, Darlene. I am so excited for Andrea but know that you will miss her at home so very much. I don't have any real advice for you as my kiddos are still very young, but I will be praying for you as you adjust to this new phase.

Have a blessed weekend, my friend!

Praying for you as you move through this new stage in life. I'm certain it is difficult.

I hope your trip to T-Town went
smooth.

I know how you feel. Years ago
I watched my son, leave for Germany. I knew it would be over
a year before I would see him
again. Years later it is a
memory.

I know the empty nest is hard I felt it when my daughter went to go live with her dad a whole year,
but then God bless me with another child I think by the time mine goes away to college I will be old and tried.")love,marina
