By Your Side

If you have not heard this song go on itunes and download it!
It's MY song for the day, week... year. The kind of
song where you just feel wonderful when you hear it :)

By your side - Tenth Avenue North

Why are you striving these days
Why are you trying to earn grace
Why are you crying
Let me lift up your face
Just don't turn away

Why are you looking for Love
Why are you still looking as if I'm not enough
To where will you go child
Tell me where will you run

And I'll be by your side
Wherever you fall
In the dead of night
Whenever you call
And Please don't fight
These hands are holding you tight
My hands are holding you


March Madness

No one is more excited for March Madness Basketball then, 
This sweet angelic face gets so rivaled up she fell back and hit her head, cried for about 30 seconds then saw a fowl shot taking place she could not miss, wiped those tears away and began jumping excitedly at the basketball boys
Who knows which team gets her extra excited but as soon as the college boys, not pros, come on she comes running towards the TV. Go Gophers!
Maybe a future in cheerleading? Or better yet sportscaster.... She could get me free tickets :)


long week...

Maggie always makes for a cute blog!
It's been a long week so far for me. I've been going to So many doctor's appointments and therapy appointments and not feeling like we've getting anything other than really expensive doctor's bills - (only time I kinda wish I was Mrs. Cruise) I Love my kid so I want to do anything I can for her. The icing on the cake though was going to the metabolic geneticist where I was giving 3 options 2 of which don't explain everything the other is just a really depressing diagnosis. Hopefully in the next few days I will receive a phone call with a pleasant voice on the other end delightfully explaining that the blood work all came back normal and the urine tests did show elevated levels and some diet changes are necessary but overall we do not know what is wrong.  That's better then a really negative diagnosis.

Lent Hair

So I almost always, most of the time, usually have RED hair :-) 

Various shades from light natural to vibrant bright Red

Saturday night I dyed my friend Jeannie and my hair vibrant RED
  'Lent Hair'
So I'm trying to decide on color shade for Easter :)
At church today everyone was commenting on how they loved Jeannie's hair and how different it was, she usually wears much lighter red shades, Yeah for my hair dying abilities!!!!!!!! 



This is a disinfecting wipe a Nun gave me. It's hilarious you have to read the directions!

       Someone had too much fun creating this :-)
