Are you ready for some Football???

How about Pee Wee football? Would this mean tough guy scare you? This is little buddie on the way to the game last night. 5th grade football and in there minds it is NFL!! Unfortunately they lost last night in a heart breaker with 35 seconds to go. We are now 1-1 for the season. Big brother came to watch, and they had to ride home together to talk about what happened and how they could prevent it from happening next game. Oh, my goodness, all this strategy!!!! Dad is out of town and he called 3 times during the game for updates. I think this is one of the funnest sporting events I have ever attended, and I have been through a lot of all sports. Big sis and big brother were very active in sports and looks like this one will follow in their footsteps.

I finished some more of the baby projects on Monday, and I will post pics later in the week. I got an email yesterday that I think is really worth reading. It is full of pics of dogs, but the words at the end are priceless. The vet in the story says that he will never live the same after and I agree with him. Ponder on it, and I believe you will feel the same. The story is about having to put an old dog down due to cancer and the statement a 6 y/0 made afterwards. The vet then goes on to discuss if a dog set the rules of life. I hope you enjoy as much as I did:

The little boy said after his dog went to Heaven---''People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?''�The Six-year-old continued, ''Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long.'' Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like: When loved ones come home, always run to greet them. Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride. Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy. Take naps. Stretch before rising. Run, romp, and play daily. Thrive on attention and let people touch you. Avoid biting when a simple growl will do. On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass. On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree. When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body. Delight in the simple joy of a long walk. Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not. If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it. When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently. ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!

Have a blessed day!! Be safe, happy, kind, humble, and healthy. Hug those you love! Take deep breathes and enjoy the moments!! Smile!! God bless ya'll!!!

  1. Looks like he is a true football player! Love the smocked dress, and the dog story is so true. Most of us don't learn soon enough. Jackie
