Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

27 years...Today




We said our promises by candlelight
You held my hands, I was dressed in white
We were young
(How can we see that far?)
(How can we see that far?)
I knew I wanted you like no one else
I told my momma that I'd found myself
In your eyes
(How can we see that far?)
(How can we see that far?)
But like your daddy said
The same sun ~ that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain ~ that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind ~ that knocks us down
If we lean into it
Will drive our fears away.

And then I woke you in the dead of night
To hold my hands, push away the fright
Life had come--
(How can we see that far?)
Yeah, we were nervous and a little scared
Until the music of our baby's cry
Filled the air
(How can we see that far?)
But like your daddy said
The same sun ~ that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain ~ that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind ~ that knocks us down
If we lean into it
Will drive our fears away.

We might die
We might live
We could hurt each other badly
Do things, things so hard to forgive
And if time is not our friend
Your mind might forget me before the end
And oh, I cannot
I cannot look that far.

But like your daddy said
The same sun ~ that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain ~ that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind ~ that knocks us down
If we lean into it
(How can we see that far?)
Got to lean into it
Will drive our fears away
It's the same sun
And the same rain
It's the same sun
And the same rain. ~ Amy Grant

I love you, Sparky.
