Some Cool Things I Saw This Week

This week I saw a few things I thought some of you might be interested in...

1. Bringing Home the Browns...this is a community on Facebook. The wife was 34 weeks pregnant and had a brain aneurysm. She slipped into a coma and they had to take the baby by C-section. Her husband was deployed to Afghanistan at the time. He was flown home, finally brought his baby home and now is waiting on his wife to wake up....he writes the Facebook page from the perspective of the baby...you can follow their journey and join in praying for this family at Bringing Home the Browns....their story is so moving I knew all of my readers would want to offer their well wishes and prayer support.


2. I know it is early but I saw the cutest thing to make for Valentine's Day on Pinterest....owl candy holders.Are these not the cutest thing?? You use stuff you already have at home...then fill with candy and seal the ends. I am thinking of making these with my little one this year.



3. I have finally watched the 007 movies. I had never, believe it or not, watched any James Bond films! I never thought I would like them. Then my cable company had the collection of films on the On Demand feature. My daughter suggested we watch Quantum of Solace, which we did and I was hooked! Then it made me want to watch them all....I am finishing them up tonight. I will admit that some of the scenes are cheesy at times, especially in the early films, but for the most part the story is intriguing and the good guy always wins in the end.

4. I read this poem by Darlene Sachat...it captures my sentiments I have about my children...
5. Here are a couple of funnies I read and hope they give you a chuckle like they did me....

 and to finish it out here is a little funny story I read....

A DEA officer stops at a ranch in Texas and talks with an old rancher. He tells the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs." The rancher says, "Okay, but do not go in that field over there," as he points out the location.

The DEA officer verbally explodes saying, "Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me." Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the rancher. "See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand? "

The rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about his chores.

A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the DEA officer running for his life chased by the rancher's big Santa Gertrudis bull......

With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer, and it seems likely that he'll get gored before he reaches safety. The officer is clearly terrified.

The rancher throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs.....

"Your badge. Show him your BADGE! "
I hope you have a great week ahead!
