I HEART the Fullans...

I can't even begin to say how much I love this family. I grew up with this family and got to know them through church. It wasn't until I graduated from college that we became real close. Debe has become like an older sister to me and the boys have become my brothers and I can't describe how much I love them. When I went home in August I drove to Dubuque, Iowa where the boys are going to college to see them with their parents. Sean is fighting over in Afghanistan so he wasn't able to join us. Love you Sean! The picture is me and Debe (mom), Jesse(left) and Aaron.
I forget how much I miss them until I see them. I felt like a celeb on their campus as most of their friends knew who I was due to a song they wrote for me. I will try to post that later. I'm hoping to get them out here to visit me soon. They were raised to Love the Lord and be true gentlemen which they are! I am so glad I get to be a part of their lives. They are such a faithful family in my life. I know they love me and pray for me daily! A BLESSING TO ME!!!!

Would You Rather Wednesday?!?!

"Would you limit yourself to speaking 500 words per day for one month in order to gain $15,000?" Things to consider women speak an average of 20,000 words per day and men speak on average 7000 words per day.

*Today I am thankful for the nice big window in my office.

I Am Back....

After a much needed Blogging break I am back. I had a really busy summer and I just couldn't keep up with everything. It makes me feel out of touch with everyone and after numerous comments everyone has felt out of touch with me. I have a lot of things I could blog about right now but I am going to do some highlights of my summer. I've attached ONE picture from the top of my summer list. This is Ivy and HOPEFULLY the soon to be Lucy Ann Elliott. She is so precious! She is tiny and not even two weeks old yet.
