Never a dull moment!

There's never a dull moment in our house! I think Collin has decided to signal handily keep the medical profession in demand! wink! Collin was hopping (crawling) and his arms gave out and he went head first onto our hard wood floors VERY HARD. His fang tooth went in the back of his lip and went through to the front. So, yup you guessed it another trip to the see the wonderful Docs! Oh goodness... I don't even think I would know what to do if there wasn't something happening all the time. wink!
So tonight I will leave you with a poem that I love!!! A very sweet friend that we made in this awful world of illness shared this with me. She lost her battle to stomach cancer but she was an AMAZING young woman that truly lived her life this way!
Because I call it a Challenge

BECAUSE I CALL IT A CHALLENGE RATHER THAN A CRISIS;
BECAUSE I LOOK AT HARDSHIP AS OPPORTUNITY INSTEAD OBSTACLE;
BECAUSE AT THE END OF A MATTER,I ASK, "WHAT WILL I LEARN FROM THIS TO MAKE ME BETTER?";
BECAUSE I TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND DO THE DIFFICULT THING FIRST;
BECAUSE MY COURAGE DOES NOT DEPEND ON THE WEATHER, THE ECONOMIC FORECAST OR THE WINDS OF WHIM;
BECAUSE I KNOW THE MOST SIGNIFICANT ELEMENTS IN MY DAY ARE LAUGHTER, LEARNING AND APPLYING MY FINEST EFFORTS TO EACH ENDEAVORS;
BECAUSE OF THESE THINGS EACH MORNING IS A PLEASURE AND EVERY DAY PASSED IS A SUCCESS-----MARY ANNE RADMACHE

Your poor little guy! I'm glad he's feeling better. Okay, so not only are you wonderful, but your talented too! I love your hair bows and didn't know that you made them. I wish I was crafty, but don't have a crafty bone in my body. Do you have a lot of the leopard print bows? Do you crochet the hats yourself?

Julie,
Just stopping by to check up on your and yours. I am about to add you to my google reader now because I see I missed too much since I stopped by last.

I am so glad Collin is feeling better.

You are awesome. I am sending you and your family my love tonight.
