Could someone please explain to me why when someone says they cant or don't want to help in something, they then take over when someone else has agreed to do it!

It is very maddening! If you don't want to do it than leave it alone and trust that the person will do a good job and is capable of handling it!

Here are some cute little stories of my great nephew Caleb who just turned 4 told by his Grandma, my sister Kim:

Caleb attends gymnastic class once a week. Caleb likes to take off his shoes and socks while he is there and Tara( his mom) doesnt like him going around there barefooted so she is always telling him No. At class this last week Caleb was at a station that his mom could not see him real well but could see that his instructor was really talking to him..She then saw Caleb had his hands down the front of his shorts up to his elbows and was just a digging. He pulled them out and had his socks in his hands. The instructor asked him "why he put his socks in his underware?" and h e replied with "Well, I have no pockets!"

This past weekend Tara, her mom and Caleb went to Indy for a wedding. One of Tara's cousins was getting married and so they stayed the night at the Hilton downtown. Anyway, they were all at the reception hall waiting on the MC to announce the wedding party while all the little ones sat around the outter edges of the dancefloor. Tara wasn't paying that much attention to Caleb because he was with his cousins and she was talking.,when she saw cameras flashing and laughter. She turned around to see Caleb setting out in the middle of the dance floor with his shoes and socks off chewing on his toes. She about died, ran out grabbed him while the whole time he was yelling"What! What!"

I love little kids stories. They can make me smile no matter what kind of day I have had!

Wow I can't believe it has been over a year since I have been on my own blog.

Lots of things have taken place over the past year.
Starting last spring we built our long awaited garage(20 yrs of waiting). It is so rewarding watching my husband spend time in there.
On one half he built his woodshop...he loves working with wood, but has never had a place to do it. Now he has the place and I have all kinds of projects I would love for him to make!
That took about 5 months to finish. We had lots of help from my wonderful brother Mark and his wife Diane! we couldn't have gotten it done without them.
After the garage was completed we finished landscaping. Now I am awaiting spring to see all the new lovely plants and flowers!
With the economy being as it is my work slowed way down, it is showing a glimmer of growing now!

With a lot of prayer and research I am now studying massage for cancer patients. It has been a long difficult at times decision for me. See I get attached to each one of my clients and to loose one of them I always thought that was just more than I could deal with. But God had other plans! He introduced a man to me who had 4 types of terminal Cancer. He came for his first massage a little unsure. He was mainly coming for his wife. When he returned for his second massage he shared with me how well he had slept, which he was having difficulty sleeping. But what moved me most was when he shared how wonderful it was to be touched with warm and caring hands. I asked him to share with me what he meant. He said it was very rare anymore to feel good when someone was touching him! ( Drawing bld, all his tests, cemo etc.) It was at that moment I realized it wasn't about me anymore! It was about using the gift God has given me to give comfort to others. He was able to come for a couple more massages and he shared things with me that made me feel good and I felt that at times I was getting more from his massages than he was!
He soon passed away after his last massage and yes it broke my heart! But I now know another direction that God is gently guiding me into with my massage! God is good all the time and all the time God is good!
