that's where we're from. it's where our hearts are. someday when our kids are grown maybe me and marty will go back there and live in the woods. every once in awhile we get this itch and start talking about going back 'home'. we both have a little 'gypsy blood' in us and i like that. the strange thing to me is that not one of our kids has a drop of it in them. in fact, we NEVER mention moving in front of them because they can get pretty unsettled.

we are headed to missouri tomorrow morning. this is a sad trip though, as we will be attending marty's mom's funeral on monday. she had been ill for quite awhile but still...she had alzheimers and it seemed to come about fast and furious. i know it was one of her true fears to have this disease since she watched her own mom suffer from it for several years. but it had manifested its self for several years.



Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.-Margaret Nadauld
