When I was a kid I loved so many sports. I loved playing rough and being competitive. My favorite was softball; I played 1st base for a league in Lyons, Ga. and on Newnan, Ga.‘s First Baptist Church’s team. I loved it! They called me stretch cause at 4′ 11″ I would extend myself like those tall girls! Ha! I was going to catch that ball and my foot was NOT leaving that bag! The young girl in this picture reminds me of my days of hanging in a bull pin.
When I had kids they caught my love bug of sports. My son more than my daughter though. Stephanie dabbled in Lacrosse, and Josh pitched in Little League and even got scouted. My boy had one heck of an arm! I was so proud of him! Unfortunately girls entered the picture and he lost interest. Now that he’s married however, he’s on a softball team and loving it again. Nothing like being a part of a team and feeling that strong team spirit and the bond that comes with it. So much learned from such a great experience. Discipline, structure, expectations, punctuality, reliability, hard work pays off, if you want to be good at something it takes practice, and so many more valuable lessons to use in life. Yep! There’s more!
Standing Taller. My footsteps are lighter.
What an ELATED WONDERFUL FEELING!
I. Dream. In. Color.
Some day soon. I will write my story. Be ready for it. It’s a powerful one.
Good morning baby girl. How’s Heaven treating you? I hope it surpasses all I’ve heard about it. I want over-the-top fabulous for you. Nothing less is acceptable. At. All.
The past two weeks have been the usual. They started out me feeling aggravated and I didn’t know why. Anxiety popped it’s head up a little and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why. Did I eat the wrong thing? Do I need to eat? Is my blood pressure up? I have positive, happy things happening so I should be feeling elated, not anxious! What the heck!
Then, it hit me. I knew. The 25th was right around the corner. No wonder. How could I be so dumb? It’s the same routine as the last 30 years. How could I not have known why? It’s not like I can ignore it.
Yep! There’s more!
Kids. They’re a work in progress. They’re going to be careless. Sometimes you just want to shake some sense into them. (Not literally, but you know what I mean.)

This past year has been a truly trying one for me. There’s been anger, hurt, aggravation, disappointment beyond disappointment, terror beyond any terror I’ve ever known, and so much heartache I thought the anguish was squeezing the life right out of my heart. Through it all, it’s been why did I let this happen? Why would I put myself through this? Why did I give in to my heart and let myself believe he loves me? Why did I take a chance? Why would I be so mean to myself and let this happen? Yep! There’s more!

Messy Marvin was founded by Rebekah Woodard. Being an interior designer that has worked with many clients with different styles and tastes, she has always taken into account their lifestyle. When she began designing for clients with small children and pets. When she began searching for fabrics that would not only be beautiful but also strong, stain-resistant, and easy to clean there was nothing to fit that. The only thing there was, was clear plastic tarps and canvas tie covers. So after months of research she decided to create her own line that met the needs of all the “messy marvins” in our lives. All Messy Marvin products are constructed of a custom wipe-able and rinse-able fabric. The fabric has a similar look to woven linen, but the fabric is actually made out of 100% lead free Polyester with a water and stain repellent coating. Messy Marvin fabrics do not need to be laundered. To ensure nothing gets through the surface to your furniture all fabrics also have a lead free PVC backing. Messy Marvin products can go into the washing machine but do not dry as the coated backing may shrink or crack with heat. But most foods and drinks can just be wiped right off the Messy Marvin fabric. Yep! There’s more!
