We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

Happy New Year 2009!

So it is always a contest to see who can guess how long I make it awake on New Year's Eve. After a little nap around 9ish....I was awake to watch that crazy nut who jumped his motorcycle over some gigantic structure in Vegas. Freakin' nuts is all I have to say!!!! His poor mother.....watch here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ds1FbhB-7-Q

It is a 9 minute video but you can see the jump in the first 2 minutes. WARNING!! One of his buddies f-bombs him....which went out over ESPN's national broadcast--I was awake! And he actually f-bombs a little later.

Anyway, I went on to bed and read my book, but still didn't make it to midnight! Have a glorious 2009...may 2009 be all you want it to be....

Oh, and we have good news! Our oldest niece, Onaga (not her real name), is going to have a baby! We are so excited for her and her family. This is her second child. We hope for a girl who acts just like her mother. Remember Onaga, paybacks are hell!
