I have been tagged

seeing how i was tagged I am supposed to post the 6th photo from my s6th folder so this is it! I recall this day My son and Husband and I were in an antique store and we came across this banjo and we bought it for my son he has played it some but it needs to be fixed it is also the same day that later in the evening my husband and I went to our first Keith Urban concert and we had a really great time!!

now the rules of this tag say I am supposed to tag five others but I really don't have anyone to tag ( sorry!)
at least I did part of what was required of me! and it did bring back the memories of a wonderful evening!



A basketball in my hands is worth about $19.
A basketball in Michael Jordan's hands is worth about $33 million.
It depends whose hands it's in.

A baseball in my hands is worth about $6.
A baseball in Roger Clemens' hands is worth $475 million.
It depends on whose hands it's in.

A tennis racket is useless in my hands.
A tennis racket in Andre Agassi's hands is worth millions.
It depends whose hands it's in.

A rod in my hands will keep away an angry dog.
A rod in Moses' hands will part the mighty sea.
It depends whose hands it's in.

A slingshot in my hands is a kid's toy.
A slingshot in David's hand is a mighty weapon.
It depends whose hands it's in.

Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in my hands is a couple of fish sandwiches.
Two fish and 5 loaves of bread in Jesus' hands will feed thousands.
It depends whose hands it's in.

Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse.
Nails in Jesus Christ's hands will
Produce salvation for the entire world.
It depends whose hands it's in.

As you see now, it depends whose hands it's in.
So put your concerns, your worries, your fears, your hopes, your dreams, your families and your relationships in God's hands because...
It depends whose hands it's in.

This message is now in YOUR hands.

What will YOU do with it?

It Depends on WHOSE Hands it's in!

4 Things

Did Anyone Ever Tell You
Just How Special You Are.
The Light that You Emit
Might even Light a Star
Did Anyone Ever Tell You
How Important You Make Others Feel.
Somebody out here is Smiling,
Because of something you said or something you did!
just something to think about

Thought for today # 3

" Artistic creativity is a
whirlpool of imagination
that swirls in the depths
of the mind"

Robert Toth

I love today's quote it has inspired me to reach deep down and connect with my creative side
inside myself, and I am taking baby steps to let the creative juices flow from the depths of my mind!

This Past Saturday two of my sisters and I did the one family tradition that I really take pride in doing for the family we made homemade tamales for the Christmas season. Though this is a lot of work we are excited because this year is a bit special. we have some of our family coming home for the holidays from NE and Japan so
and for the first time in a long time
hopefully most all of the nieces and nephews and their families will all gather together.
one request we had was that the tamales had to be hot( spicy) which since my son was home we made him the official taste tester and so they do have a kick!

we made some green hatch chili ones which are my husband's and one of my brother in laws favorite, then of course we made the red chili hot ones
( if they are not hot enough then I will suggest that the kids who wanted them hot make them next year!) jk!!!

I still have the mild red chili ones to make. yes it is time consuming but it is a tradition that I have known my whole life and I do enjoy doing this with my sisters and for the family. I know my mom would be so proud! anyway for the family that reads this blog these are made for you and with a whole lot of LOVE!
