Some 20 year olds worth knowing!

23 Jul
A friend posted this on her FB page but she got it from a former Marine and from there we do not know who the author of this awesome post is but it is so true. More people care about People Magazine or Entertainment Tonight then they do our country. They know more who the Bachelor or Bacherette of the season is but cannot tell you one person running for congress or even who the Vice President is. Every time I turn the TV on they are talking about Mel Gibson and Lindsy Lohan. Both deserve to go to jail. They screwed up. Do I really have to hear about them every single night when our brave men and women are putting their lives on the line so we can have freedom and protection. Come on America this has got to stop.
“can’t believe the news coverage given to a spoiled 20-year old. Here are a few 20 year-olds worth knowing: Justin Allen 23, Brett Linley 29, Matthew Weikert 29, Justus Bartett 27, Dave Santos 21, Chase Stanley 21,Jesse Reed 26, Matthew Johnson 21, Zachary Fisher 24, Brandon King 23, ..Christopher Goeke 23, & Sheldon Tate 27. These 20-somethings gave
their lives for you this week.”

These are my heroes and these are people worth knowing! Thank you to all of you who serve and have served. Thank you to our military families as well. You also sacrifice so much for our country!

Popular Sports Drink

22 Jul

A friend posted this article and I was so upset. I actually switched to Vitamin waters to rid myself of sodas. I should have read the label more clearly but I thought pure sugar cane was better than HFCS. It has about as many calories and sugar as a soda. It is nothing more than sugar water packaged in a vitamin, health label.

I also was plagued with the symptoms they list. One week I had drank one to two a day and had the most horrible headaches. I hardly ever get headaches but I did not put two and two together until I read the article. I guess I should not be surprised since this is a coke product and trust me I will be reading labels much closer now. We have taken all that we had back.

New Study says 85% of kids juices and snacks have high levels of lead

13 Jul

My friend sent me this article about a recent study that was done on brand name juices and snacks mostly given to children. The findings are disturbing. 85% of these tested had high levels of lead. This included Gerber baby foods and organic products such as Earth’s Best and Trader Joes. Someone commented on this post that you should just buy fresh and make it yourself, but the problem is the water. It is contaminating the fruits and veggies with lead. We could have high levels in our fruits and veggies in our refrigerator and drinking water. All I know is this is very disturbing!

“Why don’t friends with kids never have any time?”

13 Jul

This is the best article on motherhood and why friends with kids never have any time. Carol nailed it! This is my life. An errand that may take someone who does not have children 10-15 minutes, takes me 30 -45 depending on if I have one child with me or two. I can do twice as much when my kids are not with me. I get so much more done because I am not having to break up fights, clean up messes, grab 100 snacks and take the kids where they need to go. If I do get to sit down it is usually late at night after everyone has gone to bed. My job as a mom is 24/7. I don’t regret it or hate it. It is a fact and sometimes it is like a roller coaster. You have your ups and your downs. Before you judge people you really should put yourself in their shoes for 1 minute, 1 hour or 1 day. When we say we don’t have time, it is not a lie. We are telling the truth. This is why I got an iphone for Christmas so I can keep up with friends via my phone. I rarely have time to sit down at the computer but I can stay in contact with emails, FB etc via my phone. It really is my lifeline to the world.

Your Past

10 Jul

So I was going through some old boxes looking for toys or clothes to give away to a friend and I found all of my old elementary andĀ  HS year books. Wow! What memories this brings back. My girls are so excited to see what Mommy and Daddy looked like way back when. Good times! Good times!

We just met the most awesome couple. We really connected with them and they are such a sweet blessing to our lives. I love when God has divine encounters with people. Those moments where you connect with people and it is effortless.
