For some reason, my post decided to end before I had intended. I am on my "new" refurbished laptop and am not real comfortable with it yet.

Back to the storm. I pray that people will take the events of April 27 and make their lives better and make their lives count for more. We need to be more aware of our friend's and neighbor's needs without having a natural disaster to spur us on.

I had meant to post more, but I think it is about time for me to get in bed. I am reading a series of Guidepost books and I have to find out what is happening on Heather Creek Farms. These are easy reading and very good. I find myself getting involved with the family and they are fictional. But the situations could be happening to anyone.

Everyone have a good week. It is supposed to be on the cool side, but then warm up later. Alabama weather is something else. You never know what you are getting this time of the year, especially this time of the year. It doesn't want to quite give up the cooler temps, but then it hits with a very warm humid day. Only in the south. And I wouldn't live anywhere else.

She liveth, I think

Hello, world. Yes, I am still among the living. I have been without a computer since a week before the tornadoes and I have been so aggravated. HP is now on my list of companies to avoid. My advice is too avoid them. Their tech department is located somewhere in INDIA!!

We were so fortunate to have no damage due to the weather. Actually, we hardly had even any leaves in the yard; however, my sister was not so lucky. Her car was hit by a tree and she only had two payments left. Her house was hit but not a direct hit. She was so upset. She nor anyone else was injured, so that was good.

I know the storms were awful and people are probably wondering why God lets things like this happen. But things of this sort have happened since time began and God doesn't "cause" them and he could stop them, but that would not be letting nature do as it was designed. I know that sounds goofy, but I know what I want to say, I just don't know how.

2011 - A Better Blogging Year (I hope)

So far 2011 has been a good year. Joe and I are concentrating on each other for a change. We have decided that we are alone for the first time in our entire marriage. That only took 42 years. Joe has definitely became a "new creature" since his baptism. He is the kindest, sweetest, most considerate person in the world. Now, Trina, please do not faint, but it is true. He is not the daddy you grew up with. God is so good.

Today is so pretty, cool, but pretty. I have just fiddled around today. It is almost time to get ready for work, my last night this week, but I have volunteer duty tomorrow. I love my hospital work. Three weeks from today I will become the president for this year. I am excited about it, but a little apprehensive, especially when I walk past the wall of past presidents and I see the people I have to follow. I will try my best and that is all I can promise.

One of my favorite ladies from church, Jane Cleveland, is leaving tomorrow to move to Palestine, Texas. One of her sons and his family live there and since Roger, her husband, is not in the best of health I guess they decided to move where Jane could have help. She will be sorely missed. You talk about somebody that can give a hug, Jane was the BEST. I will miss her "Jane Hugs."

I will try my best to be a better blogger this year. I know I have said that before. I think if I ever break down and get a laptop I will do better. I really am not real crazy about coming to the basement at night when Joe is upstairs and during the day it seems I am always doing something else. We will see.

Trina and Karen, have a great week and beginning of your new term. I address you two, because of my lack of blogging involvement, you are my only followers. Who could ask for better?

Have a good day and don't forget to spread a little sunshine as you go along.
