Delusional quitter

I don’t usually quit once I set my mind to something.

Me resting on an unknown trail from the late 80’s or early 90’s. I do think we went to the top that day.

As a kid, my dad who hated crowds stood in the hot sun with me to ride Space Mountain. After we finally got up to a cut out where you could see people on the roller coaster I chickened out – same thing at Sliding Rock. Both of those were because of fear.

Finding the perfect camera bag

I need a new bag just a tad bigger than what I have that will also carry my tripod and water for longer hikes. Since we don’t really have a camera store nearby to go try some one I’ve been ordering too many but haven’t found the perfect one for me and my gear yet. To keep from paying return shipping on each bag…. I’ve listed them for sale on my website SellingVille.com but they are only available for about 30 days when I have to return them to the stores for a refund.

Lots of other items too, for house, yard and garage- some items from my closed retail store too.

Dad’s day

Forver in my heart.jpgIt’s been 14 years since I’ve had my dad here on earth to celebrate a Father’s Day and I’m still unable to find words. I haven’t been to church on Father’s day for years as I just sit there and sob. I still tear up at the smallest things even though I try to be grateful for the 32 father’s days I did have him here with me. My dad was an awesome dad to me and I miss him something terrible.

I try to remember just the happy times but I still feel cheated having him taken so soon- just 10 days after his 61st birthday. I wanted more time! I want to sit with him again and see that smile that lit up his face. Continue reading

Meet Sofia !

Say a prayer for her since her sponsor knows more about cats than kids, and really struggles with what you say to a 7 year old, much less one who lives in Equador.

She does like art and drawing so at least we have that in common.

Our church members at Biltmore Baptist sponsored 675 children on Mother’s Day. I didn’t pick up different cards and read them, I picked up one off by itself. Now hubby would’ve probably picked a boy, but since he is basically providing the financial part and I’m doing the letter writing I think writing to a girl will be easier.  I think she’s cute and I’d love to see a smile on that face some day.
