Every year we always carve pumpkins at my house. This year was a little different. We still got pumpkins but instead of carving, we decided to paint them and make monster pumpkins instead. Take a look at my masterpieces.
Every artist works best with their tongue out, right?
This weekend was absolutely gorgeous. So Sunday, we spent most of the day outside. We had some business to take care of in the morning. My dad mowed the front yard for the last time this fall and then we raked and burned the leaves in the back yard. We bought pumpkins to carve later on this week. And then later that afternoon, my church had a hayride and roasted hot dogs and marshmellows. It was such a fun weekend!
I'm not sure how the camera did not capture my smile, because mom said I was smiling the whole time. I really liked the bumpy ride.
Sorry it's been awhile since my last update. There hasn't been to much going on, except I have been trying to fight off a cold for the past 2 weeks. Luckily nothing more than a cold though. But I am back to my normal self now. So, today was Pajama Day at my preschool and it was great. I should declare everyday to be pajama day. It's definately more comfortable.
This week is disAbility Awareness week at my school, even several businesses in my town our participating. I'm not sure if everyone is aware of my friend, Melaina who passed away earlier this year. Her mom and dad had a vision of an All Accessible playground in this area. After she passed away, her parents still wanted to go forward with the playground in honor of their daughter. So this week, many of the proceeds will be going towards the playground. McDonald's in Jackson is participating and donating 10% of the proceeds from 4pm to 8pm, but only tonight (Tuesday, October 13). So if you are in the area and don't have other dinner plans, go to McDonalds.
"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you are alive you have got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive." ~Mel Brooks
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
We learn as much from sorrow as from joy, as much from illness as from health, from handicap as from advantage and indeed perhaps more. - Pearl S. Buck
There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need money. Love like you've never been hurt, and dance like no one's watching.
Love makes each day a joy, and each moment a memory.
"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence . . . 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
One day at a time is enough...don't look back and grieve the past, it's gone...don't be troubled about the future, it has not come yet...live in the present and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.
