"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Got Gas?

Oh my gosh. Gas prices are almost 5 bucks a gallon. It is insane. I got gas yesterday and put in $20.00. that used to fill up my tank. Now I barely get a half a tank. I'm so glad to have a little Honda Civic. Even though it's small for our family and has no air conditioning at least I don't have to spend $100.00 to go visit my mom.
