I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

I originally wrote this late last night, but the pictures would not load. So, here it is now instead. 
 
 On Monday I renewed the tags for our vehicles for another year - pay the taxes, get the sticker - you know the drill. 
 But on Monday, it was pouring down rain, ALL DAY LONG. 
 So I simply stuck the renewal stickers in my purse and forgot about them. 
 Yesterday, out of the clear blue (and under a clear blue sky, I might add) I remembered them. It had only been two days, but they had been a very full two days, which had included a dreadful cold, two sleepless nights, and a diagnosis of an ear infection in the redhead. (who, thankfully, finally, slept all night long last night).  
 Back to the original story.... 
 I was slightly afraid that the stickers were lost, which would be a $300 mistake... luckily, I found them, safe and sound exactly where I had left them. Still in my purse. Surprise, surprise! 
 Next: apply them to the vehicles. Now, I like tools. Especially when they come in little "sets", neatly stored in containers with everything nicely organized and labeled. I am fairly sure I have admitted before that I am slightly OCD. This tool set fits me to a T. 

 I felt empowered yesterday afternoon. It really is quite easy to unscrew a license plate cover, put a renewal sticker on, and screw it back on - but normally, that would be an "Andy job". Andy is not available, so I did that easy job by myself. And it felt good. 

 (in case you can't tell, the cover says, "POW's, you are not forgotten")
 I "fixed" my car, and the truck. The boys got out their "vehicles and toolboxes" too, and played in the driveway for a while. It even got hot enough for them to feel the need to take off their shirts.  They make me laugh. My little hillbillies...



Ya'll come back now, ya here!
