Well I guess thats it for now so I'm leaving you with something my sister left me and I hope you do the same!!!!

Are You To Busy for a Friend...
One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the room on two sheets of paper, leaving a space between each one.
Then she told them to think of the nicest thing they could say about each of their classmates and write it down.
It took the remainder of the class period to finish their assignment, and as the students left the room, each one handed in the paper.
That Saturday, the teacher wrote down the name of each student on a separate sheet of paper, and listed what everyone else had said about that individual.
On Monday she gave each student his or her list.
Before long, the entire class was smiling.
'Really?' she heard whispered. 'I never knew that I meant anything to anyone!' and, 'I didn't know others liked me so much,' were most of the comments.
No one ever mentioned those papers in class again.
She never knew if they discussed them after class or with their parents, but it didn't matter. The exercise had accomplished its purpose.
The students were happy with themselves and one another.
That group of students moved on.

Several years later, one of the students was killed in VietNam and his teacher attended the funeral of that special student.
She had never seen a serviceman in a military coffin before.
He looked so handsome, so mature.
The church was packed with his friends.
One by one those who loved him took a last walk by the coffin.
The teacher was the last one to bless the coffin.
As she stood there, one of the soldiers who acted as pallbearer came up to her. '
Were you Mark's math teacher?' he asked.
She nodded: 'yes.' Then he said: 'Mark talked about you a lot.'

After the funeral, most of Mark's former classmates went together to a luncheon.
Mark's mother and father were there, obviously waiting to speak with his teacher.
'We want to show you something,' his father said, taking a wallet out of his pocket 'They found this on Mark when he was killed.
We thought you might recognize it.'
Opening the billfold, he carefully removed two worn pieces of notebook paper that had obviously been taped, folded and refolded many times.
The teacher knew without looking that the papers were the ones on which she had listed all the good things each of Mark's classmates had said about him.
'Thank you so much for doing that,' Mark's mother said. 'As you can see, Mark treasured it.'

All of Mark's former classmates started to gather around. Charlie smiled rather sheepishly and said, 'I still have my list.
It's in the top drawer of my desk at home.'
Chuck's wife said, 'Chuck asked me to put his in our wedding album.'
'I have mine too,' Marilyn said. 'It's in my diary'
Then Vicki, another classmate, reached into her pocketbook, took out her wallet and showed her worn and frazzled list to the group. 'I carry this with me at all times,' Vicki said and without batting an eyelash, she continued: 'I think we all saved our lists'

That's when the teacher finally sat down and cried.
She cried for Mark and for all his friends who would never see him again.
The density of people in society is so thick that we forget that life will end one day.
And we don't know when that one day will be So please, tell the people you love and care for, that they are special and important.
Tell them, before it is too late.
And One Way To Accomplish This Is:
Forward this message on.
If you do not send it, you will have, once again passed up the wonderful opportunity to do something nice and beautiful.
If you've received this, it is because someone cares for you and it means there is probably at least someone for whom you care.
If you're 'too busy' to take those few minutes right now to forward this message on, would this be the VERY first time you didn't do that little thing that would make a difference in your relationships?
The more people that you send this to, the better you'll be at reaching out to those you care about.
Remember, you reap what you sow.
What you put into the lives of others comes back into your own.

Sorry for being MIA

Haven't been in the best of moods!!!
Last Monday Oct 1st was my birthday & I want to Thank you all for the wishes!!!!
It was just a awful depressing day for me!!! Missing my husband just had me in such a depressing mood because not having anyone here to celebrate it with!!!
Both my son's were working, Derrick called me & than Thursday night him & his girlfriend took me out to dinner at Yellow House Hotel, Its a very old place and people come from far away to eat there and its said to be haunted!!!
Jace gave me a birthday card & a Big hug!!!!!

I was going to post yesterday but than I got a phone call from Jace's friends Mom at 3:45pm, He was in a accident with his motorcycle and had taken him to the new St Joseph's Hospital that I've got no idea were its even at, I use to always go to the old one in Reading.
I was to upset to drive let alone I don't like driving when its dark.
Well they called me a couple of times to inform me of the long progress of the ER and finally at 9:15pm the hospital called Derrick and he went to pick him up and they finally got home at 10:30pm. He has a concussion And stitches in his left elbow, so that meant I hag to wake him up every couple of hours, he's feeling a little better except his back hurts him!!!
Well I guess that's it for now
