Love Like Crazy

I've been singing the chorus to Lee Brice's "Love Like Crazy" all day.

Be a best friend
Tell the truth
And overuse "I love you"
Go to work
Do your best
Don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your praying knees get lazy
And LOVE LIKE CRAZY

Seems like pretty good advice to me!

I Suppose Introductions are in Order


This is my granddaughter, Amelia. Beautiful, of course, like both of her parents. I love you guys.

A Note to My Stepdad

Dear Bruce:
I love this coffee table and would love to make it but I have:
a) no tools
b) no skills

Love,
Karen

Occasionally the Public Schools Get it Right...

This is my alma mater, Snohomish High School. #57 is a developmentally disabled young man who scored this touchdown at the end of last weeks game against Lake Stevens. Notice at the beginning of the video that both teams are guiding him to head the correct decision.

As far as I am concerned...this is a win for both teams!

Please watch:  TOUCHDOWN!

FOLLOW UP: Here's a very nice article from the Everett Herald. What a great story.

Things Joe Has Taught Me

Not everything has to be done "right now"
Being a git-er-done kind of person, I want everything solved, completed, or fixed today. Yesterday would be nice, too. But that's just not feasable. There is, of course, a time and a place for quick and decisive action, and my nature will come in handy there. In my private life...I'm learning to slow it down a bit.

Being kind is a two-way street
I love to spoil my guy. I think he deserves it. The pleasant surprise has been, that my little bits of sweetness are given right back in different ways. Unexpected ways, like the sharing of his GPS this week. With Joe, sharing of the electronics is huge. Really huge.

It's good to treat yourself to things once in a while
This has always been hard for me. I have always felt guilty spending money on myself. But Joe encourages me to occasionally get new clothes or my hair done, because he says I work hard and deserve a little treat once in a while.

I am so thankful to have him!

Love


If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.
