What love is....

Love is patient....enough to to stand in the sun selling tickets or collecting change or manning a garage sale.

Love is kind....enough to show up with dinner every single Wednesday for a year and a half.

Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; never selfish, not quick to take offense...enough to endlessly, selflessly support another family.

There is nothing love cannot face....especially when faced together.

there is no limit to its faith, its hope, and endurance...enough to share when someone else's faith, hope or energy runs low.

In a word, there are three things that last forever: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of them all is love. And we are incredibly blessed to be enveloped by all three.

Thank you to each and everyone of you who has reached out to our family in a million different ways over the last year and a half.

Love to all~

Mandy on the credit crisis

Alannah(trying to explain the concept of credit cards): "Mandy, you borrow the money from the credit card company and then have to give it back, plus even more money called interest."

Mandy: "Huh????"

Alannah: "Well, Mandy, you know what an I.O.U is?"

Mandy: "Vowels?"

Mandy on dining choices

Mandy: "Momma? When will there be another event with cotton candy?"

Me: "I don't know, baby. Maybe the carnival?"

Mandy: "I think everyone would be happier if there was ALWAYS cotton candy."

Mandy on differences

Mandy: "Momma, butterflies are are so pretty."

Me: "Yes, baby, they are."

Mandy: "If all the butterflies were exactly the same, I don't think they would be as pretty. Do you?"

Me: "No. No, baby, I don't think they would be as pretty at all."

Really, isn't the answer to most of the worlds problems somewhere in those three conversations?

Love to all~
