Hello everyone. I hope you are all enjoying the week so far.

I went to the library last night to get some books for my Saint Nicholas capstone project. One of the books I checked out is "Christmas: A Candid History" by Bruce David Forbes. I'm looking forward to reading it. Any of you ever read it?

Hope you all have a great Wednesday!

Happy Pines day everyone.

We had more bad news this morning. We had a 17 yr old commit suicide Monday then last night a 15 yr old girl in our high school attempted suicide. She is in ICU in Asheville. Just like the first kid, she was struggling with a broken home. Her dad had an affair and moved in with his girlfriend abandoning his kids. Some folks should not have children. There are obviously a lot hurting kids out there. We live in a very small community, only 5,000 people in our whole county, so it hits everyone hard. Sorry to be a downer but the family covets your prayers.

Anyway, I have been busy the past two days getting ready for moms birthday, I'm kind of looking forward to getting back to my regular routine tommorow. I hope everyone had a great day!
Goodnight, sweet dreams
You are a sweetie to be so kind to your mom.
Just wonderful!

I prayed for both families this morning. I prayed both these families find hope and know where (or with Whom) they can find it with.

So sorry to hear this and I agree some should not have kids,and some parents need to keep it in their..I am sorry I almost let it slip out..lets just say they need to resist temptation..It may not seem like you are doing anything wrong but usually someone gets caught and it destroys relationships and marriages! I will keep your community in my prayers!

my daughter keeps putting off going to look for a prom dress. I guess i'm gonna have to drag her to the stores.

what's new w/ everyone? does anyone have plans for the weekend ahead?

hope y'all have a good 1!
My youngest had her junior prom last week and now my middle daughter will be going to the senior prom. Thankfully she found a dress already but she can't find shoes that she likes. And we need them to have the dress altered. So I need to drag my daughter to the stores soon too. Have fun shopping!
