As Promised.....

As promised I have put together a slide show of T~Bear's classes Cinco de Mayo program Friday. I am so glad that I am able to attend the activities that my grandchildren are involved in. These children really worked hard to put together such an entertaining show. They even did the 'Mexican Hat Dance' for us. Seth was his usual well behaved self. He took part in the program too, I'm not real sure if he was singing our talking, but I do know he was

Lani from 'The Wooden Porch' awarded me 'The Perfect Post Award' for my April 28th Meaningful Monday post. I thank you Lani for the honor of receiving this award. Far more children grow up in abusive homes then we are aware of. I was one of those children and it is my belief that as long as we are quiet it will go on. We all need to step up and let it be known that we will not stand for this any longer. For too long the innocent has been the ones to feel guilty and not say anything for the very reason that they have been taught that if there is any quilt laying around they need to pick it up and claim it as their own. I think it is time to start placing the quilt where it belongs....squarely on the shoulders of the abusers.

I have acquired what ever sort of illness that JD had all last week. I am here to tell you it is no picnic. With that said, I am going to click on 'Publish Post' and go lay down for a few days or how ever long it takes to get over this. Until I am posting again I am wishing you sunshine and flowers.

I hope you feel better soon Jo. I know what it is like to be knocked off ones feet due to illness!

The slide show was awesome! It looks like they had a wonder time putting on the program.

Congrats on the award. :)

Dearest Jo,

First of all, I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, let's hope that it doesn't last too long and that you're soon back on your feet:-)

I so enjoyed that slide show, the children seemed to have done a wonderful performance and I can well imagine how much fun it was to watch them!

I just read your previous post and it brought tears to my eyes...that truly was Dominic's guardian angel that came by to pray over him, I just know it!! I've heard of things like that happening before and I truly believe in it. Prayers are continuing for the little guy!! xoxo
