"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."

Cloudy day

I L-O-V-E cloudy rainy days. Today it is very cloudy and raining a little bit. But there is loud thunder too. I love thunder . I have the slider door open and the smell of rain is nice. The kids aren't scared. Do you hear the thunder?

There was this really LOUD thunder about an hour ago. It was scary! Right over our house knocked our power out.
