Thoughts on Millennials

I listened to a talk show last week that focused on this young lady's words. 


I was very impressed with the numbers of millennials who called the show and agreed wholeheartedly. 
The common thread they all had in explaining why they agreed was how they were raised.
 In a society that increasingly wants things handed to them and expects more and more, it was refreshing to hear that there are a lot of young people who know and value the hard work it takes to be a good parent.
 What are your thoughts?

Sunday Truism

If being hurt by the church causes you to lose faith in God,
 then your faith was in people,
not God.

Between May 1st and May 31st

Do you know the feeling when you are in line for a roller coaster and  you start to get butterflies and feel some trepidation? 
You know that as soon as you are buckled into the seat that it will be fun and exciting, but while you are nearing the front of the line, you are a bit worried and thinking of all the "what ifs"



That is what the month of April has been for me.
 I was talking to my mom recently and I was a bit flummoxed as to why I was feeling overwhelmed at the thought of May and all that is scheduled.
 I don't have a child in high school...
...no graduations...
...no baseball games...
...no big parties...
...no confirmations or First Holy Communions. 

But anxious, I am.
I know that each even will be fun and exciting...but I still worry beforehand.
Beginning May 1st, I have...
1 60th annual Chicken Dinner at our elementary school which I will bake treats and serve guests.
1 Celebrating  25 years of marriage
1 Belated Birthday gathering for a certain 19 year old
1 Band concert 
1 Awards Assembly
1 Fair - and all that that entails
1 Celebration of being alive for 5 decades
1 Fair Banquet
1Mother's Day
1Jury Summons
1 Moving home - day for a certain college student
1 4-H Book completed...and begun
1 Mother's Day
2 Field trips
4 Festas

There is also some overlap-age of events...
Is that a word?
It is now.
AND
 June 1st?
I will be at the coast.
Seriously.
Doing NOTHING.

A Look Back...To American Idol

 I thought with the final American Idol behind us, I would look back and share one of my favorite artists on the show...



While Jason Castro didn't win, his music has stuck with me. 
 There was... and is... just something pure and sincere about his voice. 
 Do you have a favorite singer from the show?

A Pretty Perfect Day

...AND
While she knew I was coming to take her to lunch, she did not know her Grandparents were joining us.

Suprise!

(And my parents were in their first selfie!)
