Ok. So I see God's purpose for me. I LOVE TO HELP OTHERS!!! It sounds like an ordinary thing, but I love helping others with their projects or running around for them when they can't do what needs to be done. I think God has given me all this time so that I can tell someone else "Don't worry, I can do that for you." I get a big rush from that. There are so many full-time working people out there that have other things that need to get done that they don't have time. What better person to do it than me! So if anyone needs anything done within a 30 mile radius of Willow Spring, NC, just send me an e-mail. LOL

My dad is very big on respecting the elders. I look at the way my kids react to us even as tough as I am on them and think, "I would have never said that or done that to my parents". There was one memory that I laugh at hysterically. My parents owned a full-service beauty salon and my mom worked most Saturdays so my dad had us for the day. He took us flying in airplanes (he has a pilot's license), out on the boat, McDonald's for pony rides, and then any sports we were in to. Our family was blessed. I won't say we were rich, but we were blessed. One Saturday, before debit cards, all my dad had was a $100 bill and it was lunch time. We went in to 3 different fast food restaurants and no one would take it. We finally went to Burger King and they said no too. Well my dad, instead of weaving all the way back through the line maze, he was going to unclip the chain to get out. A little boy stepped in front of him, grabbed the clip and told him "You can't go through here". Dad said "Excuse me" and tried to go through. He told my dad again, "You can't go through here". Dad tried to be nice and said it again. The Boy said it a 3rd time. Me and my sister cringed because we knew you just don't do that. In a loud thunder voice and Big bulging eyes he saids "MOVE!" That little boy ran back to his table. So funny! We ended up going to the grocery store and loaded up on junk. You would have to know my dad to understand how funny that story is.

|On the Big Horse|
[b]A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

It is only fitting that I talk about my hubby today. I had the luxury of observing my husband, Bob, from a distance before we started dating. We worked together, then became friends and finally dated. We worked in a service department in a big dealership in Florida. One day I was walking through the shop on his lunch break and noticed him reading a book. I have never seen a man reading a book for his own enjoyment before. We became good friends before starting a relationship, and he was just so stinkin easy to talk to. Well one day my car broke down, and I couldn't afford to have one more thing done to it. I didn't know who else to call but him. He moved in for the kill. He made a deal with me and said that if I take Him out to dinner, he would fix my car for me. Smart man!! I agreed and the rest is history.
I have never known another man like him. He is my opposite, and thank God for that. I love watching him with our girls. He has no problem with putting on jewelery and a crown to make them happy. Have you ever met a man that will make breakfast on the weekend? I have that man!!! He has spoiled us in that regard. He lets me run with my crazy ideas and is there when they don't work out the way I thought. I have not found anything that he isn't good at. Integrity. Character. Loyalty. These are just some of his amazing qualities. I am truly blessed to have him to grow old with.
