5 Question Friday!!!!

My Little Life

I sure do love me some 5QF…head on over to Mama M’s house (and by house, I mean blog) and join in the awesomeness that is 5 Question Friiiiiday!

1. How much time do you spend on the computer a day?

More time than any human should! I am overly connected…!

2. Will you pay for your children's college or raise them to pay for their own way?

If we hit the lottery then of course. The reality is, no we probably will not pay for their college tuition. But we will most definitely help out as much as we can.

3. Have you ever been in a car accident?

Yes! And it was a bad one too. We T-boned a car going about 45 mph. Their fault, not ours. Long story short? I was outta work for about 3 months and we got a nice settlement.  The end.

4. What is your favorite book?

Hands down..The Notebook. No wait!! Twilight. Yeah, for sure, it’s Twilight. But then there’s Sunshine..That was a great book! Well then there’s just about every novel by Jodi Picoult..IDK…I just love to read.

5. Do you make your bed everyday?

No I do not! But I sure do preach to my 6 year old about making her’s. And that my friends, is why I'm the Mother!

Another angel got her wings

I don’t think I’ve ever been this upset over someone I had never met before. (Except for Kayleigh Anne Freeman, the 1lb miracle)

Sweet, innocent, 2 year old  Layla Grace has lost her battle with Neuroblastoma.

I have to be honest.  I believe in God..I pray. I just don’t know how or why God would take such an innocent little life. I know ALL life is precious. But a child is something different. A child is a CHILD!!

I am just so upset. I was so hoping for a miracle, as I’m sure the parents of this angel were too.

Since I can not be there to attend the celebration of life for Layla, I am going to release pink balloons in her honor on Saturday afternoon with my little ones. Then I will hug them and hold them and tell them how very much I love them!!

God bless you sweet Layla Grace. You’ve touched my heart so very deeply. I will always remember you, and I never even “knew” you.

It’s about what I DO have..not what I don’t.

I was watching the movie Precious last night, and it just made me so sad. I know I had it pretty rough as a kid, but then you see something like that and realize there is always someone who’s problems are bigger than your own.

That’s why nowadays I really try to look at what I do have, instead of what I don’t have.

I do have an amazing husband that works hard for us and loves his children.

I do have a home, and it’s filled with love and warmth.

I do have clean clothes on my back.

I do have food on the table every night.

I do have things that may seem so simple to you and I, but are huge to others. Running water, heat, a bed.

I do have my health. And my teeth! :0)


Until next time, don’t forget to floss!
