How do you spell stinkpot?

Nathan came up to me earlier today and asked me how to spell stinkpot. The following is the result of this vocabulary lesson.

I later learned that Dave had written "Nathan is a stinker" on the same board just moments before Nathan was asking me how to spell stinkpot.

Gratitude for a face

I read about this woman today and it stirred emotions within so I thought I would share it with you. We all know how important it is to be grateful, to share our gifts with others. I'm glad Connie is able to share her courageous story with such humor and strength. What a horrible trial to go through and to think that Timmy's occasional vomiting tantrums are hard to handle. What a joke indeed!

Connie also stated something we all struggle with... judging others unrighteously. She said, "When somebody has a disfigurement and don't look as pretty as you do, don't judge them, because you never know what happened to them," she said. "Don't judge people who don't look the same as you do. Because you never know. One day it might be all taken away."

How true her statement is; we need to live in the present and enjoy what magnificent blessings we have. Our simplest yet grandest of blessings are our five basic senses of sight, smell, sound, taste and touch. My resolve to show my gratitude to a loving Father in Heaven who truly blesses each of us every day. Look for his hand in your lives and you will find it! Enjoy this story and I'm sure it will change your day for the better.

May Day, May Day, Did You See The Flash Mob

May Day, May Day...

I received an email from a friend and it really put a smile on my face, so instead of emailing the videos to you, here they are!

Do Re Me - Central Station Antwerp

The T-Mobile Dance

So Much Fun!

Maybe they'll come to Phoenix and do something. I haven't looked at the website yet but maybe when I get some free time. For now I need to get my whole wheat bread in the oven.
