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

I Believe

I believe that things things happen for a reason. I believe that friends who become family and love you anyway are a wonderful gift. I believe a clean house is overrated.

I believe meatloaf has healing powers. Especially when that meatloaf is made with love by my children. And ketchup becomes fake blood and laughter fills the kitchen.

I believe that this rotting pumpkin will sit on my front porch until I find a shovel to pick it up and throw it away. Or it dissolves into a lump of rotting pumpkin flesh.

I believe that hard work and perseverance pay off every time.  No matter what.

I believe that these girls love this boy more than anything in the world. Why do sisters love brothers so much? I believe that when God entrusted these 3 gifts to me, He gave me the gift of a lifetime. Does life get any better than this?

I believe in goofballs.

I believe that little boys, grandpas and 4-wheelers go together.

I believe I live in the most wonderful place on Earth.

I believe that the laughter of my children can heal hearts.

I believe seeing my children do things they love is an awesome experience.

I believe that this girl is gonna make a fantastic grown-up. I believe that she will choose the right nursing home for her father and I. With the help of her brother and sister. Especially her sister.

I believe that love between a parent and a child is a love like no other.

I believe still waters run deep. I believe I am the most blessed person on earth. I believe if you are lucky enough to have this man in your life, I believe you are also very blessed.

I believe that time heals all wounds. Some wounds take more time than others....and some wounds, well there isn't ever enough time.

I believe that this woman who gave me the gift of life is the smartest person in the whole wide world.

I believe. Just sayin'.

I believe that every now and then a wonderful woman blesses those who love her by using her gift of words and creativity. That, my friend, would be what you do - more than 'every now and then'.
