How does this apply to your life?
Every day, I try to pray for someone I know, for another Gideon, for Prentiss County Schools and for our first priority, our students and our children. Many of you have heard me say, the one thing we can NEVER make a choice about is who our parents are. I challenge myself and you to consider that. When you have a child in front of you, in your thoughts, in your prayers, in your classroom, in the booth next to you crying/screaming your entire meal, picking their noses, throwing up in your classroom, or just being difficult to get attention, even negative attention just so he/she can have someone prove to them they care, remember that and then? pray for that child and for me. I have many contacts, tonight I wish to let you know, I picked you, you are not a generalization. I value you and I pray for you. Prayers said for you and thanks from my heart for all you do for any child you encounter. And remember, Nancy would want you to.

I do NOT believe it!!!! First, we get a "White CHRISTmas" for the first time in my life and now.....we have MORE snow....no big deal, right? WRONG!!! Folks, this is M I S S I S S I P P I...we don't get snow...we get mud ! Not only is the snow beautiful but it gives me the time to do a card :-) yippeeeeeee
What happens when you pull the heart tab out?
and last but not least you open the card to find out "the ways"
So we have our blushing bride, chocolate chip and whisper white cardstock accompanied by crumb cake ink colors over the embossed (#119277) with same embossing folder used on scrap piece of cardstock which is then covered with crumb cake ink on raised impression and transfered to whisper white and chocolate chip on inside of folder by using that scrap piece of cardstock for the stamp ;-) The flower tab is raised by stampin' dimensionals (#104430) and the inside "how do I love thee, let me count the ways" is printed on my computer in brown on Stampin' Up! vellum (which I use a lot).
Well the kiddos want to play in the snow and it's too cold and too late (I sure sound like old foggie) for me but I sure am going to watch them...love the laughter....hugs ya'll
