"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."

Are you hooked?

I'm a little behind. I just started reading the Twilight series. I finished Twilight in 2 1/2 days and started the New Moon last night. I'm having a hard time getting in to this one and it's starting off slow. I'm so sad that Edward is gone. My friend Jennifer has read the series 3 times and says the book will get better and to just keep going. If you haven't read these yet, Do it. I'm not a reader but did read a 500 or so page book in a little over 2 days. Trust me.... You will get hooked!

Another good deal

I love cold cereal and will eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner. Well this morning i got a text message from my cousin Amy (thanks Amy) letting me know that a Albertsons right now you can get Cocoa puffs,trix,golden grahms, and cheerios ten for twenty dollars. Or $2.00 a box. IF you use your Albertson's Card. I'm gonna go stalk up. Make sure you have milk too. I hate when i'm craving cereal and I pour a big bowl and there is only a little bit of milk. The kids come first.
