A God Rush

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

Strength, Faith and Integrity

These are some of the qualities we were raised to have. I have heard of some things lately that people I know are doing that are just wrong and shocking. Then again, I see people like my sister and brother-in-law go through some very trying times lately and think "My Gracious! That is Strength, Faith and Integrity. They have had a few things happen but the only one I will talk about is a life-threatening issue with their middle child. She started complaining about her heart beating out of her chest. After a few complaints my sister took her to the doctor. They monitored her for a while and couldn't catch these episodes until one day an episode lasted 30 minutes, long enough to get her to the hospital. She has an irregularity in her heart that is misfiring causing tachycardia. She had to have a heart procedure as a 6 year old that most 50 year olds have to have with heart disease. Anyways, my sister drew strength from God during this whole thing keeping everyone else calm. I would have been a basket case. She was the strong mother. I have seen uncontrollable circumstances thrown their way and their Faith in God and the Integrity that they have when dealing with these trails is honorable to God, and although it is tough now, God is going bless them beyond measure because of the way they handle themselves, whether it's here on earth or in heaven after they are gone. And that is all for now. :)

My dad has many layers.

 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.
My dad was a very hard worker. Now he works hard at retirement. lol. He likes to play pranks on his siblings. The older he gets, the mushier he gets. Bob always calls me in the other room and says "He hugged me again." It's a funny site because Bob is 6'2" and my dad is 5'9". I am blessed to have such a great father. Not many can say they have that.
