Friday's Quote

I received this in an e-mail and thought it was cute .

Dear Lord,
So far today, I am doing all right.
I have not gossiped, lost my temper, been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or self-indulgent. I have not whined, complained, cursed, or eaten any chocolate. I have charged nothing on my credit card.
But I will be getting out of bed in a minute, and I think that I will really need your help then.

"Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind"

"You can't change the past but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future"

"God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with Him"

"A hug is a great size fits all. It can be given for any occasion and it's easy to exchange"

On all of these the Authur is Unknown.

One of my favorites: "Life is not easy and it will never be, but you've got friends and one of them is me"

I am so blessed to have friends...I truly don't know where I would be without you. God has brought each and everyone into my life and I am thankful for you! Thanks for all the encouragement, prayers, phone calls, comments, and let's not forget girls night out!
Do you have a friend that you haven't talked to in a while? Call them or send a quick e-mail or card.
Thank-you for being a friend!

I have found myself praying more often before I get out of bed...Dear God Help! :)

I think even if I taped my mouth shut I would still get in trouble. :)
I need Him so....and I am glad for the women here that He has sent to help me walk this walk. We do need our girls don't we.

have a great weekend!

You have been on my mind this week. I was wondering how you were doing with your daughter off to college. I've been blogging, but not doing a lot of reading of blogging lately. But I had been thinking about you and praying that each of you were making the adjustment smoothly.
