Looking forward to today?

Not so much really. I kinda dread it. I have to clean all day. Oh boy you all know that I just cant wait to get started. I hate cleaning. Its not really that bad, but ugg. Oh well its not going to do it its self. I have a couple of things to say this morning. I think God for my hubby. I love him so much. I got a text from him this morning and he called me sexy. Now this is the man who sees me at my worst all the time and he still thinks I'm sexy!! I am so glad LOVE IS BLIND!! LOL. He is my rock. I can count on him for anything, even making me feel good about myself. He works hard, he comes straight home from work, he doesn't do anything with out me. Of this I am thankful. I know women who wonder where and what their man is doing. I don't have to worry about it! Its only one week until our vacation and I am so excited. We are going to Gatlingburg and have some exciting things planned. I can not wait. Also a week from Sunday will be our anniversary. It falls on Easter this year. That was a shock to us both. It seems so strange. It will be 13 years. I have put him through alot and he has stayed right by my side through it all. I love him more than life.

I also wanted to let you all know that I checked my email this morning and there is an update on Erin's page. Her dad could not sleep last night because he felt that he had to get this wrote down about her. This is what he had to say. I copied and pasted it here. It is incredible how God worked through this little girl!!

"I heard some great news last night from Brian. There were 47 people saved and 43 rededications at the meeting held in Erin's honor at the Crossroads Youth at Higher Ground! To God be the Glory! I know Erin is so happy in Heaven this morning! To hear things like this lifts me from the valley of despair and sets me high on a mountain of Joy! I am so proud to say that I am Erin's dad! I have been blessed just to be able to call her daughter! Erin, I love you so much Honey! Jesus, thank you!! I Know God is still using Erin's sickness to touch people in this city and around the country! Please continue to pray for our family. I have been dreading the next few days knowing from the past experience of losing my Dad in 1992. I want this Friday to not be a sad funeral, instead I want it to be a celebration of Erin's Life! I had no idea of the impact that skinny little girl of mine could have on her friends and this community. I pray that God get's all the Glory! I hope everyone didn't think that Tuesday nights update would be the last. I'll continue to post to this site as long as the Lord lays it on my heart to do so! I am sure Kimberly and Brian feel the same. I couldn't sleep again this morning and I woke up with all these words going through my head. I want to again thank everyone for their Prayers and comments they leave here. It's like an ointment for my aching heart to read your lovely words of condolence. Thanks everyone! Thank you Lord!

Again here is that web site if you want to check it out again.

I was tagged by Hope for a meme. I will play along. Here are the rules. In the 8 facts about yourself, you share 8 things that your readers don’t know about you. Then at the end you tag at least 8 other bloggers to keep the fun going.

So here goes.

1. When I was three years old I was bit by a dog and it almost killed me.

2. I HATE for my food to touch on the plate. I don't want to eat it if it does.

3. I love to paint. ANYTHING. walls pictures, i don't care.

4. I did a wall mural for McDonald's in Big Stone Gap.

5. I cry when I am super tired. lol. I am a weenie.

6. Somedays I wish I were a man. Nothing disgusting here. Just because they clock out at four thirty and their day is done. I also never hear my kids scream DAD. its always mom.

7. If I could choose any occupation in the world, it would be CSI. I don't like working with a lot of people because they get on my nerves. I don't want to be in the medical field because I don't want to hurt people. This way I could give closure to greiving families.

8. I went to a Pittsburgh Steeler's game and would go again!! It was incredible!

Now for my eight. Oh boy I know most of my people are on Hopes page so lets see if I can find some people to tag.

Sarah, Charolette, Lady Di, Denise, Mel, Draven, you guys are it!! Woohoo have fun. I have to think of two more I know who I want, I just cant find their site right now lol.

I'm so glad you're still in love with that boy after 13 years!! I like him pretty well myself! :o)

What Erin's dad wrote is so cool. They are praising the Lord and giving Him glory in the midst of their pain and heartache.

I tagged you for a meme when you get time!

Love you much,

Good Morning Brandy,
Girlfriend, I hate cleaning as well. LOL. Sure wish I could afford to hire a maid to do my house each week. LOL. That was so nice of your hubby to send you that text. My DH doesn't like to text and it is hard if he is driving. So, if he wants to tell me anything sweet like that he just calls me. He calls to say he loves me, just to hear my voice, and to let me know he misses me. I have a wonderful DH as well. He doesn't go anywhere either. When he is home, if we have anywhere to go or something to do, we do it together. He is my best friend and my ROCK as well. We share everything. We will be married 13 years on the 24th of this month as well. I know yall are excited about going to Gatlinburg. I am going to be expecting to see lots of pictures from your trip. LOL. Are the kids on Spring Break next week? Our girls will be. That is so sad about Erin passing away, but at least she is in heaven now and not suffering anymore. Her parents have alot of Faith and Courage to get them thru this time. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

That is so sweet about your hubby. Lol but I totally agree with you, I always wonder how my hubs can still find me attractive even first thing in the morning!

It is so wonderful that so many have given their lives to the Lord and have rededicated their lives too. What beautiful news.

I'll get to the meme in the next few days, thanks for the tag.

I see I've been tagged for another meme. This one looks like it won't be too hard. I just did one today on a six word memoir. Tomorrow is show & tell day. I'll probably do the meme on Saturday. (Smile)
I love to paint too - especially walls in the house. I don't like prep and cleanup though. I just want to paint. I would like to paint pictures if I had the talent. I definitely do not.

I got to thinking about the meme and forgot to comment on your comment on my blog. About the bunnies. Some of them stay out all the time. Some of them are just for Easter.

I did my meme.

I like everything I learned about you! Glad that you and Hubby have each other. I like "just because calls" too! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Brandy,
You've got quite a long post here but I have to make a comment anyway. I'm so glad that you and your husband are doing very well approaching your 13 years of marriage. Congratulations. It's really nice to hear your man still call you sexy after all those years. You've got a wonderful husband there. Regarding Erin, I'm so glad that she (or he? I'm not sure) is still touching the lives of people. Praise the Lord. Wonderful information about yourself in your meme. I'm really sorry that I don't do personal memes. I hope you understand. Thanks so much for this post. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Have fun in Gatlinburg. Prince and I have been married twice as long as you have and he still does those little things to make me feel beautiful and sexy. When we go out on errands we call them our "mini dates"
My heart goes out to Erin's family.
Maybe Mary can send you some snow as ours only lasted one day.
Thanks for sharing with us but I cannot imagine being a CSI with all the gorge they show on the tv shows. I would truly have to learn to breath through my mouth as my nose would do me in.
Peace be with you and yours.
Oh, is your beautiful red head still talking about girls?
