Off And Running, Or Stumbling Is More Accurate!

Today is Sara’s graduation from Junior High to High School!!  A very big day for her that I wouldn’t miss for the world, no matter how sick I felt!  Gotta get cleaned up and then be off.  I have to stop on the way to school and get her a single red rose and a card.  I will take plenty of pictures with the camera on my phone and upload them when I get back later this afternoon.  

I also have some new pic’s of Shawna and her babies from last weekend to share.  Wait until you see the fish my sweetie pies caught!  They were so excited too 🙂

Plus, we have 6 additions to our menagerie!  Mark and I have been hearing some sort of small owl for a while now but were unable to spot it.  The other morning when he was leaving for work, he yelled back into the house, “Baby!!  Come here, you gotta see this!”

I went outside and he pointed out a small mother owl on one branch, three babies on another and two more on yet another.  Last night they were closer to the ground and I tried to get pictures of them but they blend into the trees so well you could barely see them.  I’m hoping that I can lighten them on my photo shop enough to post them!!!

Back later,


Silence Me

You can never
silence me forever

I will speak out
not whisper but shout

The injustice of all
the innocent that fall

Upon whom you prey
all through every day

For children they are
not adults by far

Just little girls who
deserve better than you

Although you beat me
you’ll never defeat me

As their plight I
to high heaven cry

Letting the world know
their charity to show

The injusice of it all
is my heart’s call

I want everyone to see
this is a tragedy!
