Happy Mother's Day.

Dear Lord, it's such a hectic day
With little time to stop and pray
For life's been anything but calm
Since You called on me to be a mom
Running errands, matching socks
Building dreams with building blocks
Cooking, cleaning, and finding shoes
And other stuff that children lose
Fitting lids on bottled bugs
Wiping tears and giving hugs
A stack of last weeks mail to read
So where's the quiet time I need?
Yet when I steal a minute, Lord
Just at the sink or ironing board
To ask the blessings of Your grace
I see then, in my small one's face
That you have blessed me
All the while
And I stop to kiss
That precious smile

Well we are all moved out. I'm living in my car and my wife and kids are 60 miles away in a shelter. They only allow woman and children there. We are talking about getting a divorce. No sense in staying together, I'm just an anchor around my familys neck. Without me, my wife can get all kinds of help. With me no help. This place she's at will help her get a place after she completes their program. 4-6 months. Man is it cold this morning. Only in the 20's. BRrrrrr. So much for these christian groups keeping familys together. Got chemo today.

Talk to Schmidty

hello anyone; i have a sister who is 47 years old and has cerebal palsey. she lives in a nursing home and because we had no money for a lawyer, she was made a ward of the state. She can no longer swallow and is dying. She wants to come home but her doctor and the person who oversees her won't let her. Shouldn't she have some rights to decide where she wants to die. they have taken everything else away from her , why can't she just come home and die where she knows we will take care of her and seeshe hurts for nothing. i just don't understand why people are so cruel and heartless. will someone help me understand this. we really  love my sister and want to care for her with the time she has left. can anyone help me?

Good Morning Rick, yes times are tough when one can;t find a job or be able to pay the rent, have food to eat.  Never been in your shoes, but I know its rough going.  I never had much at your age but I did have a roof over my head and food to eat, when I was short of funds I looked for anything I could do to make a few bucks.  I cleaned houses, raked yards yards, made and/or fixed or repaired clothing, cooked, washed cars, anything I could find available I was willing to do.  I put up ads where I thought I might find something I could do to make a few funds.  I think its great that you are going to be an EMT, this is something that is always needed and it such a life saver too.  I know I have been  attended by some great EMT's the past few years and they save my life for me.  Such a great position and so much good you can give thoses who need help.  I hope and pray you can find help and I wish I had the funds to help you, but unfortunately I don't, but sending prayers that something will come along for you and this stress will be lifted off of you.

I belong to facebook and check there for people I know..I hope you can locate your kids one day. Take care and I hope Sunday will be a better day and you can find some of your children.

Hi 'M',

I know it has to be hard for you not having your children in your life.

There are some sites like ' that will give you general info as to what state,city the person is in for free. You have to purchase to get the address however. There is another site, I think its Public but I'm not sure. You can google for these sites. It gives state & city for free as well. This one,you can purchase the full info for about .95, this is only for use for a day.

Hope this helps.

Try to have as happiest a Mother's Day as possible. Treat yourself.

Hi sweetie,

I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. No matter how long or short it has been since the actual passing it is still a current loss to the one grieving.

Wow, 21 quarts of oil. It must have a leak. Call around to some of the Auto places like 'Autozone or Advance Auto. Ask to see if they have the product where you can put in your oil to stop the leak. I know this is probably temporary, but its cheaper than 21 quarts of oil.

Of course, if you can afford & have a trusted mechanic to look at it then that would be better.

My heart goes out to everyone who was involved in the flooding & bad weather. Can you get some state or FEMA assistance?

Hope you get to feeling better. I will say a prayer for you.

You have the right to rant.

Happy Mothers Day
