This picture is not the clearest, but conditions were a bit suboptimal - the cafeteria at school. Tonight, the class of 2010 celebrated the receiving of their long-awaited class rings. This particular group of kids has been in school together since kindergarten. See the shorter guy in the middle? Back in April 2001, he was diagnosed with spinal cord cancer and was given 18-24 months max to live - by my calendar that was EIGHT YEARS AGO. There were several times we thought he would be lost, but each time he came back to us.
His oncologist back then prayed she would get to see him graduate from high school and I have a sneaky suspicion that that particular prayer will be answered.
I left a career as an insurance underwriter back in 1993 to stay at home with my kids and I have never once looked back. I've been fortunate to find a job that I can do from home and have done so for the last 16 years.
I am blessed with a great husband and two wonderful kids. Life doesn't get any better than that...well, throw in a beagle or two and it is a smidge better!
A love of our faith is #1 in our home and always will be.
