Wow a little over a month left...

Posted 11-17-2010 at 01:53 PM by HollyJells

I am sitting here amazed at how many days are left before Christmas and I am marveling at how fast this year has gone. Is it really already November 17th and Thanksgiving is next Thursday? I am speechless at how fast life is moving. This year marks the 12th year of my Dad passing on and the fourth year since Mom left us. Time passes so quickly when life take hold and yanks you along for the ride.
I have orientation for subbing tomorrow and although I am a little nervous, I suspect that will pass in time. Just a little jittery to start. THe weather here can not make up it's mind yet. We had a horrendous wind storm last night and I was up until the worst passed. All the while hubby was upstairs snoring his heart out.
I am about finished with all of my decorating and considering not putting up the outside lights this year, there just isn't enough time to be honest and I have so many other things to do.
I called my sister to let her know we will be heading her way for...

[COLOR=seagreen][B]Today we found out that DJ, my stepson, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease stage III and who finished chemo is IN COMPLETE REMISSION !! Along with my MMC family who have supported me, laughed with me and I am sure cried with me, I offer this Psalm of King David as well as offering it to Our Father. The words are not mine but I could not have expressed what I am feeling right now in a more eloquent and humble fashion and to my MMC family, MERRY CHRISTmas !! Though I am very poor at this time in my life, I truly give each and every one of you my heart and friendship xo [/B][/COLOR]

I Have Turned Into A Fair Weather Fan

Posted 11-15-2010 at 10:21 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

I have been thinking about this for a few days now. As many of you know I am a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals, I have been a fan of the team for nearly 30 years, but the last twenty have been very tough. The Bengals have had only 2 winning seasons in that time, and as a fan coming into this season, this was the year it was different we were going to go a long distance and maybe win the Super Bowl. Boy was I wrong.

I was six years old, and at that time I was a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers (my older cousin I mentioned in a previous blog, persuaded me at a young age to be a fan) I remember watching highlights of games with my father and I saw the striped helmet, I instantly became a fan of the Bengals, mainly because I loved tigers at that age. The Bengals went to the Super Bowl that year and lost to the 49ers. I have been by their side since then, buying and receiving team merchandise, living and dying with the scores on Sundays, which is quite tough being in Massachusetts...

Frustrated !!!!!

[B]HYE Been so frustrated while trying to work you could spit nails ?[/B][/QUOTE]

[B]It is Sunday morning at 10:01 a.m. I am sitting here, but am supposed to be working. I am a transcriptionist by trade and my shift for Sundays is 6:30 to 11:30 a.m. This morning after I typed my first couple of jobs I began to get error messages that have to do with the server for my company. It was telling me that there was a problem uploading jobs to the hospitals I was trying to send to. In other words, because the server is having a problem, my work goes no place and as long as it goes no place I get no lines which means I get no pay. [/B]

[B]I have e-mailed and e-mailed and shut down my system and rebooted multiple times and still the problem persists. Nobody is getting back to me. Wonderful. My shift is SUPPOSED to be over in an hour and a half. By the time anyone responds to me, if at all, it apparently is going to be this afternoon. [/B]

[B]I am so upset...

Twas The Night Jesus Came

[SIZE=2][COLOR=seagreen][B]Twas The Night Jesus Came
[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][COLOR=seagreen][B]Twas' the night Jesus came and all through the house,
Not a person was praying, not one in the house.

The Bible was left on the shelf without care,
for no one thought Jesus would come there.
The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
not once ever kneeling or bowing their head.

And Mom in the rocking chair with baby on her lap,
was watching the Late Show as I took a nap.
When out of the east there rose such a clatter,
I sprang to my feet to see what's the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
tore open the shutters and lifted the sash.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but Angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.

The light of His face made me cover my head,
it was Jesus returning just like He'd said.
And though I possessed worldly...
