Take a Lesson from the Animals

(Cody with Rebekah)

I've decided that animals are more tuned in to the weather than the forecasters are. Every time the weather forecasters tells us we are in for the "Big Storm" it never seems to materialize. However, every time our dog or the neighbor's dog or stray pets or other animals seem "skiddish" that's when it seems like we are going to have really bad weather. So, from now on, I'm taking my cues from this guy! :)

What is going on?

We are under another tornado warning here in St. Louis. The sirens have gone off several times this afternoon. I've been in the basement the last couple of hours, but it looks like the worst has passed so I ventured upstairs to get on FB and check my e-mail and blog. Hope everyone is okay. Will check back in later. Stay safe!

A Prayer for the People of Joplin

I ask you to please be near to the ones who have lost everything in Joplin, Missouri. Bring them help. Give strength to those who are helping the ones who have lost so much. Please give your peace and comfort to those who have lost loved ones. Restore their hope, Lord and restore their city. We know what it feels like, but theirs was much worse, Lord, so give them all the courage, help and strength that they need to rebuild. Let us know what we can do to help.
In Jesus Name,

Motherhood=Challenging; Grandmotherhood=Rewarding!

Being a mother is the hardest thing I have ever done. I wish I was as good at it as my mother. This time around (with the grandmothering thing) I'm trying to fix all the mistakes I made the first time around (with the parenting thing). One thing I've learned is to stop and take more time with the kids. The dishes, laundry, housecleaning, paying bills, and all other "important" stuff can wait!

I'm going to enjoy this Mother's Day. Hopefully, we will just relax and take it easy. Maybe we will all watch a Hallmark movie together, or maybe just swing and tell stories. Whatever it will be, I'm going to just slow down and enjoy it. Who cares if the house is a mess, right? :)

What is your favorite memory of your childhood days? Do tell....
