I am praying for you today. Cancer stinks. My mother has been fighting colon cancer for 13 years now.

Good Afternoon MMC!!!!! It's a chilly and snowy day here in central Indy with a high of 35 projected. We were in the 80's last year on this day, so I'll take it!!! Hopefully this is a good sign for this summer. I'm dragging today. With being sick over the weekend and then having my niece the last couple of days, I'm just wore out. So I slept in a little late today but now I'm up and at it. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!

It was snowing when I got up and now the sun is peeking out.
I have to do some running around and then will be back until I leave for work.

of course posting this after I typed it and before I came home would have worked too! LOL

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.

Praying for your whole town.

So we know Black Smoke means the coffee is on at the vatican and White smoke means we have a new pope. What does a white seagull sitting on top of the chimmney for an hour mean though?

He has a microphone attached to him so that someone can try to hear what is going on in there... dangerous for the seagull because if he is caught he becomes dinner!
