You know, as you get older you realize that there are things more important than those that are directly related to you. In other words, it's not just about what you want, the clothes you wear or who your friends are, which had been important for 25-30 years. Your children and grandchildren seem to be the driving force and you will do whatever it takes to see them or please them. This week Kyle came from south Florida to see the kids and spend some time with them. Since we hardly see them, our days were rearranged in order to visit, too, though we were out of town.
Everyone seemed to have a good time being together. The kids are really growing up and it won't be long before time with them will be few and far between. We love them so much and are sad that we don't seem to be with them as much as we'd like. We are very proud of them and see that they are maturing into a good young man and lady. Their love for the church is something that means so much to us. We pray it will always play an important role in their lives.
Spencer had a game late that afternoon and these pics were taken afterward. He went fishing all day with a friend who he played the game against. Real sweet boy. His parents were cordial and very kind. The man fileted a couple of the fish for their Mom to take home and cook, even giving her a recipe to prepare them. We declined to take any with us since we were a good hour and half away; we thought it would be better to have it refrigerated before we could get back.
One of these redfish is Spencer's. They were huge!
Spencer was tired by this time but got him to let me take a couple of pictures.
The sweetest granddaughter in the world...Shelby...and me!!

Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
