Brad has been traveling for work a lot the last few weeks and wanted to bring home a little something for Winston. He came across this book in a little shop - "There was a Coyote who swallowed a Flea" and couldn't resist buying it for him. This book has become Winston's new favorite. It's based on the old classic book "There was an old Lady who swallowed a Fly" - except the Coyote swallows a flea, a lizard, a snake, a bird, a cactus - to name a few of the things he swallows. The illustrations are fun and the story line is adorable. Winston laughs every time we read it and the says "Again!" as soon as we finish. I usually have to read it 3 or 4 times in a row before we can move on to another story. If you're looking for a good book for your child or to give as a gift, this is a very entertaining and fun story. Winston gives it a big thumbs up!
Today is Bo's 20th birthday. I can't believe how the time has flown by. I still remember this day 20 years ago. The first time I saw Bo after he was born it was like meeting up with an old friend I hadn't seen in a while. The feeling of recognition was so strong it amazed me and I just knew that I had known this sweet little boy before. He just fit right in to our family and I wondered how we had gotten along without him. Bo is in Germany right now doing great things - serving his Lord and offering his time to help others. He is a great person and I feel so blessed to be able to be his mother. Happy Birthday Bo. We Love You!!!!
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong because at some point in your life, you will have been all of these."
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
