As most of your know, I lost my Mom back on Nov. 22 and yesterday I got a call from my 86 year old Aunt Henrietta, who I called "Aunt Yetta", telling me her days were coming to an end and she wanted to say goodbye. This lady has been my second Mom and I told her so (but she already knew) She told me that I was the daughter she never had. We actually laughed about days gone by and cried about my Mom, who was her youngest and closest sister. They were eight years apart, just like my sister and I are. My Mom dying has really taken a hard toll on my Aunt. She felt she was suppose to go before my mother. Even thought I was extremely sad after I talked with her , I felt really good and happy she called me. SHe told me she would say Hi to everyone and hold the door open for me. I found this poem after my Mom died but I really hope I have the strength to read it at my Aunt's funeral.
God looked around his garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering.
He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
and the hills were hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered
"Peace be thine".
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone.
for part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

who I gave to a co-worker when I moved here over seven years ago. I was pregnant and we were moving into an apartment and didn't have the $300 pet deposit. Oh, how I wish I still had him. I've been looking into buying one again but I can;t believe how much they are. I paid $300 back then and they are $600 and up these days. I've even seen these Munchkin kittens that are super cute but they are pricey too. Hopefully, we will find a kitten when "kitten season" hits in March.

It's hard to pick my favorites, but this is a third favorite! Listen to the description:
Junior Misses and Misses One-piece Dress adn Jacket: The sleeveless, figure molding bodice is cut in one with the center skirt sections. Upper front edge gathers to the neckband. Softly pleated side skirt billows from below long lone bodice. The cropped jacket, View 1, features short kimono sleeves and is detailed with bands at center front and neck edges. The ends fastening in a bow add interest to the jacket.
I love that word ~ "billows"

We have had our Wii for quite some time, we probably got in within a year of it coming out. My now seven year old son has quite a few games, and got some great new ones for Christmas. He got the Wii Nerf and Lego Star Wars, which he loves. He got Bloom Box and he seams to like but hasn't played very much yet. My husband and I talked him into using his Christmas money on a Guitar Hero World Tour and Oh MY GOSH, I can't get him off the Wii now ~my husband too for that matter. I could easily loose a couple hours if anyone would let me play, but I really suck (but if anyone would let me practice!) My son got a real electric guitar last year for Christmas from his brother-in-law who plays, but we don't have anyone in this little town who gives lessons~so in his room it sits. I think he really could have some talent with a guitar. Watching him master this guitar hero tells me he'd be good at the guitar. He's only had it three days and he can close his eyes on some of the songs and get it right!
Some other Wii games we enjoy are Wii Sports and Wii Play. My favorite is Mario Party 8 and my sons use to be Super Mario Galaxy but I think Guitar Hero just took over that spot!
