Lord, give me the strength and grace to face it.

I missed my youngest today.   
She was on a band trip to Hot Springs.  A day planned, full of fun, with a Skillet concert to boot.   She just called and told me she will be home around 1:00 a.m.
At one point this evening, I walked to the kitchen and a thought hit me.   It was just me and David in the house.   Our son was still at work, daughter on her trip and the house was so quiet.   I thought, is this how it’s going to be when they are both moved out into their own places?   
I don’t think I like the quiet.   
I know however, that the day is coming and coming sooner than I like, that I will be facing that situation.
Lord, give me the strength and grace to face it. 
Have you hugged your kitty today?

Today is Hug Your Cat day!

June 4th actually has three bizarre holidays attached to it, but since I have a fat Tabby named Elvis, I thought I’d highlight “Hug Your Cat Day”.
Not sure who came up with this “holiday” or when it originated.  Not even sure there is any factual data out there, couldn’t seem to find it, but I am sure it was a cat lover who created it.   I also found out June is “Adopt A Cat Month”.    
Dog lovers… sorry… but I’m sure I will come across a “Hug Your Dog Day” at some point, though…
The other two bizarre holidays assigned to today are “Old Maid’s Day” and “Applesauce Cake Day”.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
