Lord, so often times, as any other day
When we sit down to our meal and pray
We hurry along and make fast the blessing
Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing
We're slaves to the olfactory overload
We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold
But Lord, I'd like to take a few minute more
To really give thanks to what I'm thankful for
For my family, my health, a nice soft bed
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head
I'm thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they'll ever possibly know
Thankful Lord, that You've blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that in my heart lives life's greatest treasure
That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place
And I'm ever so grateful for Your unending grace
So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You've provided
And bless each and every person invited

I have decided I am going bye bye...sort of.
I am taking a 3 day vacation from being "plugged in". After work today, no more blackberry, no more blogs/facebook/internet, no more phones. I need a break...so....it's just going to be me, the sewing machine, my books and of course Cooper and his stuffed friends. (and because I don't watch TV much anymore I will be treating myself to my shows I need to catch up on a night...I am not THAT crazy to go unplugged without TV!)
Have a great weekend everyone...if you need me...my phones will be plugged back in on Monday :)

Cooper loved the "vet in training" area. He worked in the food prep area for a long time while other kids buzzed around him taking stuffed animals' blood pressures and administering band aids to injured stuffed sea turtles and other plush animals.
He got his face painted like a cat and of course we visited the petting zoo.

The kids had a ball playing together! It was so fun to have the house full of the noises of kids playing and the smell of fresh bread baking. The weather has turned cold so even felt like the holiday season is upon us!
A good time was had by all and now I am looking forward to a restful weekend :) Eating all my bread!
