Mari, you're so funny! It's also funny to watch how people from up North are practically DYING in 90 degree weather hahaha.

No joke... I have a sister in law that lives in Portland Maine and the one that lives in Maryland (lived at one time in Africa)... Of course it's taken them years to get used to their weather now but when they come back to SA, they feel the heat... the humidity is the killer for them, including for my daughter who has lived in Vegas for almost 9 yrs....Good thing they aren't made of chocolate or they would melt in just 75 degree weather now…

Personally I can tolerate cold better then heat (prefer spring and fall)… I can layer up in cold weather, but in the 100 plus temps we (I) can only take off so much in public before frightening anyone :rolleyes: , getting arrested or worse getting put in a loony jacket and locked up a different way…

It is so funny when people come to Texas that aren't from here, the first thing they say is "Is it always this HOT here?" I tell them you should come and visit in late August and then you will know what HOT is.

I tell people that all the time, you can always put more clothes on to stay warm but I can never take enough to get cooler!

I give my Lord thanks for the year which has passed, though there may have been some heartache, some uncertainties and worries, the year was also full of blessings, each thing that happened important and meaningful in its own way.. Taking the good and what I may have perceived as the bad in stride and with much FAITH, knowing His hand and His plan is in everything which touches and surrounds me for a reason.

Wishing each family and friend near and far a New YEAR full of blessings, of love, of understanding, of acceptance and most of all PEACE in our HEARTS.. No matter what obstacles or gifts may lay before us, may we look to God for some guidance and foresight to help us navigate each bump we may come to in our journey to the best of our ability and to humbly accept all the good things He bestows on us with heartfelt gratefulness.

I really like this.....

"Our value can't be wrapped inside what others think or we think, because that is too dependent on this ever-shifting world. The value God places on us makes us more than we think we are, even on our hardest days, weeks, or years."

I read about an adoptee and their family having to deal with “adoptee bulling” …As if the world is not tough enough already for our kids.. I sure the @#%& would hate for my grand-baby, the heart of my heart to have to deal with this stuff…. This goes for any person especially a child in any situation… ugh!!

Wow, kids today are so ruthless. The internet and smart phones makes it so much easier for kids to grow up too fast and be exposed to things their brains shouldn't see. I hope none of my kids have to endure such ugliness.

"But I do know that no parents are as right as they hope to be at the time the decisions are made. Our one redeeming grace for all the verdicts we must give-and the fruit they bear-is that God is fully capable of redeeming our children from our brilliance."
