Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Just got home. Walked out of my car and wanted to stand there. I wanted to just feel the air around me. I do not do that enough. I may do that later, I dont know. I drove by my favorite tree this morning. You see, I do have a favorite tree. Each fall, it slowly turns into the most beautiful colors. Perhaps hubby can catch a picture for me sometime.

I love this feeling. I can not wait to go to bed in about 30 minutes. SLeep is good.

But the fall. I do not want to miss this season. I want to slow down and do nothing but enjoy it. Its kind of like seasons of life. Sometimes I want things to quickly pass but if I do that, I will miss something so special. I love my reminders to slow down. I feel like I have probably missed some special times because I am always in a hurry. Life is too precious to be like that.

Anyway, I wonder what God is thinking when we stop and just admire this creation of His. I wonder if we really appreciate the beauty of this earth. I am so happy to just be alive.

7 years ago, we were finishing up wedding plans,and I was buying baskets to make for our hotel guests. I was dreaming of married life and what life in Atlanta would bring. Dreams are good! What a great week we had. A week about us. It was awesome!!!!

Sorry for the randomness of this post!

Amy those are great feelings. I wish we had a fall like you all have back east but that does not happen here in Phoenix.

I tried pledging some money for Michael but after I enter all the information and hit enter the computer did not show me if it took or not. It was weird and now I am not sure if the pledge went through.

No, you are the second person who has told us that. I guarantee you that it did not take but thank you very much!

Others have succeeded today though!
