Blessed Easter

Matthew 28, King James Version

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

Have a blessed, happy Easter!

Are you a girly girl?

I've always considered myself mostly a girly-girl.  I took dancing and wore tutus and costumes when I was growing up.  I didn't play sports.  I was more likely to dress up as a bride or a princess for Halloween than something wacky or scary.  Now that I'm all grown up, I still love ribbons and bows, pink and lace.   I like dainty, porcelain tea cups, flowers, TV beauty pageants, and wedding dress shows.  My husband would say I have a lot of shoes (I disagree).  I love pretty fragrances, lotions, and makeup, and I don't play sports.  I love watching "Say Yes to the Dress" and "Something Borrowed, Something New" on TLC.  I enjoy scrapbooking and making crafts.  Pretty much girly things!


However, a lesson in contradictions... I am a girly-girl, but I don't like shopping.  I guess I did when I was younger, but I just don't have the patience or the cute figure for it anymore.  I also helped my son raise rabbits, a goat, and a pig.  And I love basketball season!  I watch basketball all the time, whether it's a game, an interview, The Starters, or what have you.  I'm a huge Houston Rockets fan, and since the first 2 games of the playoffs will be here, I'll be there! 

So, am I a girly-girl if I like basketball but detest shopping?  I think so!  Are you a girly-girl?

It's Prom Season!

We've done very well planning for senior prom on April 26.
For my daughter:
dress - check
makeup - check
jewelry - check
shoes - check
alterations - check
hair appointment - check
dinner reservations - check
flowers - not yet
date?  Iffy.  That's a whole different post, though!

My son had a date, but she got in some kind of trouble, and now she can't go, so he's not going to go, either.  That makes me sad.  I can't convince him to ask someone else or to go with a group of friends. I guess it's just not important to him.  Do you think he will regret it?  I know my daughter would.

Every Mother Knows

Oh, how hard it is to see your child or children hurting.  You'd rather take the heartache and pain, the humiliation or suffering.  Why does it hurt worse when you aren't the one going through it?  It just does.  This should be a happy time for us with prom, banquets, awards, graduation, and college coming up, but the last week and a half have been emotional hell.  That's what I'm confessing for today.

Throwback Thursday

My dad is the two-year-old in this picture, the little bitty one in front.  1937 was the year.
