Eight Things I look Forward To:
1. The weekends when my husband comes home from a week of hard work on the road.
2. School getting out in May.
3. Heart Friends...we meet twice a month for accountability, prayer, encouragement.
4. Bombshells...another group ..we meet once a month. I went to high school with most of these ladies and then our daughters went K-12th grade with each other.

5. Picked up sticks in my yard for nephew Brad who was cutting my grass.
6. Played, fed and rocked to sleep my sweet neice Brooklynn while her Dad cut my grass.
7. Read blogs and posted comments.
8. Watched T.V. and read some in a book.
8 Things I Wish I Could Do:
1. Jog without running out of breath.
2. Loose weight and still be able to eat chocolate.
3. Make more money so we would be out of debt and Joey wouldn't have to work so hard.
4. Redo the last 2 years that Andea was at home.
5. Stop rebellion, addictions, heartbreak.
6. Remember names ...I am horrible...I never forget a face...but may forget your name.

The jogging without running out of breath is one I wish I could do as well. I can power walk all day long but get me bouncing up and down a bit and forget about it! LOL.
I enjoyed reading your 8 things and getting to know you a bit better.
BIG HUGS!

Well how fun was this?! I really enjoyed this peek into your life Darlene.

I love the name of your high school girlfriends group, BTW!

How wonderful to live in the same community you grew up in. I just can't even imagine.

Have a blessed weekend.

Well, it is funny how these things get around. I got tagged a week ago or so. :)

I am stopping by from the Say It Forward Carnival. Your blog is beautiful, the verses, and song is great! Keep it up.

Blessings!

My heart aches for you as I read the things you wish you could do involving Andrea. Know that I am praying. And know that God chose you specifically to be her mom...you are just the right woman to be her mother. With God there is always hope. Keep praying and keep holding on. He loves you both more than words can say!

Have a blessed weekend, sweet Darlene!
Love,
K
