The Bucket List

The Bucket List, anyone seen that movie yet??? Everyone that i had talked to said that it was a great movie. Morgan Freemon, love him great actor, Jack Nickolson great actor but on the sketchy side sometimes. Well it was a great movie, no violence, very little language, no sex (some talk but no show), great movie, about 2 guys that make a list of things to do before they kick the bucket right? Well what people didn't tell me was that they had brain cancer and eventually die from it. Needless to say by the end of the movie i was balling my eyes out. Andy looks over and says, "are you crying?" All i could respond with was, "it hits a little to close to home". It just brought up all the emotions of loosing my sister to the very same thing. i called Tina (other sister) and asked her if she had seen it and her reply was that was a horrible movie. Not because of the movie itself but again the emotions brought out by it. She said she would not own it or see it again. i think i would like to own it. Sometimes you just need to cry and let things out and sometimes it can be easier if you have a reason to do it. i just need help getting things started sometimes.
So if you are looking for a good movie, i totally recommend it however with me i needed a box of tissue.
i will post about our camping trip a little later, i need to download the pics first.
Have fun and play today:)

Life at the moment....

....is great so i guess it's time to update. Not much going on here. We just had our yard sale at the church to raise money for our adoption and can you believe it we raised over $2,000. How awesome is that, only $8,000 more to go:) Last week i trained Becky to take over my job as secretary at the church so i am officially not working, yeah! It feels great to know i don't have to go anywhere if i don't want to. Today i was able to take the boys to the free movie and then to the park for lunch. We had a great time. This weekend we get to head out to Crater Lake to go camping, first time of this season. Not only are we going camping but Rob, Vicki the boys and Papa are going with us. Needless to say my boys are on countdown. They've been asking about every other day for months when we will go to Eugene to see them. A weekend away sounds great to me, it seems like it's been a long time since we've just gone and not had any plans or events we had to be at.
So my advise for the day, keep pressing in and see what the Father is doing in and through you. You don't have to do everything!!!
Be Blessed
