Hehe, yes of course I will add you ^_^ I didn't realize that is what kicked the captcha thing in... We went to lunch and back and it was such a pretty day! Yes, it sounds like you have been through a lot in a short while. It is a wonder you still have your sanity - a bigger person then me! I think I would enjoy going to the cemeteries and I even mentioned to my hubby that I would like to visit some of the older ones when we were out today. We may get to do that sometime later on. My hubby was in the Marine Reserves and it was a hard battle but won't go any further then that. I'm proud of him though and even though he is not in there now, once a Marine always a Marine. emotion_bigheart I'll talk to you later - going to BG some more ^_^ HUGS!!!! I enjoyed our time as well!!
Oh my, Love the idea of you photographing cemeteries ^_^ I'm not sure that is for me, but I would look at your books!! As for your son, I salute and thank him for his service! I don't agree with how things are going at the moment, but he signed himself up and his family on the dotted line to serve and protect and for that I admire him so much!! I wish him the best and will say a prayer over him and you guys!!! I am going to have to leave for a while but will be back on later - you have a great day and you keep up with those pics and writing because you are very good at it - love the history channel when they show things like this - very interesting! emotion_bigheart
Well, she is someone who wants to go into graphical arts, flash, etc. as she sketches all the time and does a great job so not sure if job corp is right for her - but I will still look into it. I also think the government has "plans" like you said... My Son may have been a better fit but he has a pretty good job at the moment that appears to be successful - we will know more in about a year. so it doesn't seem like the way to go for him. Again, will look it up though. Might be good for some of their friends 3nodding Big HUGS to you!!! emotion_bigheart
Oh, that is such a beautiful story about your daughter and her boyfriend ^_^ I love stories like that and of course, the Son that is into welding and law enforcement - that is awesome! You will have your eyes opened when he goes into that wink You are great at writing, did anyone ever tell you that? You have Seven - as in S E V E N children between the two of you??? Oh my, WOW! That is a LOT lol!! I know what you mean about not having enough to go around - whew! I only have two but they have friends and well it seems like I have more from time-to-time which is how I actually like it 4laugh I love children! Jobm Corp, huh, maybe we should look into that... I will Google it later ^_^ Both of mine are working but my daughter is wanting to look for another one. I honestly hope she gets one that is an advancement for her - she works so hard and is paid very little. She deserves more. I sold my car that bought them 2 older cars to start out driving on. We did have to have work done on them though but it did give them some freedom and get them from place to place. I know they aren't fancy but they seem to appreciate them which makes my heart feel good... We do not live in the slums or anything but to hear about these kids' parents kicking them out - on my... I believe it has to do with this economy and the old-fashioned mind-set of how we grew up with - when you turn 18, you should get a job and make it in the world. Well, now, things are a LOT different then when we started out and it was hard then. Much harder now! Okay, off my soap box lol You have a great day!! emotion_bigheart
Oh my so much has happened! I remember when you moved back to your home town - that is around the time you had your thread and not long later I drifted away from Gaia. I also remember you had your first grand baby on the way and Congratulations on the 2nd one smileemotion_bigheart You will be Grandma ALL the time - it's just harder when you live miles away... Mine are not out of school and so happy for them! Very proud too - they may not be exactly where they want to be but they are on their way 4laugh No present BFs or GFs at the moment and that is okay but I do pray they will eventually find that special someone at the right time God sees to be ^_^ I'm sorry to hear about you and your hubby but then again, maybe it was for the best since things are better! That is even better news smile As for you moving again, well, maybe you will like it better this time. Who knows, we may end up moving one day. Our nation and even the world is going to pot and economy is horrible... So many out of jobs it is a blessing to have a job these days. Plus, it is hard on the older folks to keep a job without a degree and extremely hard on the younger folks for getting a start in life. I see so many kids that are kicked out of their homes without any help for food, shelter, clothing, and since they are struggling with all of that, no means of having a car to drive to get to a job to help them make it on their own. It is a sad place... It breaks my heart when I hear about these things... Anyway, it is very nice to catch up with you and it sounds like things are looking up for you - maybe not the move but it could get better eventually! Let's hope and pray!! emotion_bigheart
