Kiss and G-O, that spells GO!

I am constantly amazed at my assumption that people are going to follow the rules. Me-I like rules. They keep things organized and structured. I find those two qualities comforting, soothing. I like my world orderly. Apparently this is not a sentiment that everyone else shares. I am reminded of this every morning during carpool.

I personally am a fan of the Kiss and Go lane at school. It's quick and to the point. This type of structure helps my day to remain as I like to say, one task and focused. The concept is clear-Kiss meaning to give your kids a smacker, then the assumed get them out of the car, and finally GO meaning to go on your way.

Yeah not so much for a large number of mothers who have apparently of their own decision renamed the lane Park and Plan. Are you kidding me. Let's move people. Take it to Starbucks, Einsteins, Panera-any where but the Kiss and GO!!!

Seriously, I am all about planning at Starbucks. Get with it, moms!

Walking in the Light

Wow! This year year has been a whirlwind to say the least. I am shocked we are near the half way point in February. Part of me wants to dance. If the start of the year is any indication of how it is going to go, I am happy it's flying by. I will usher in 2009 with bells and whistles.

Yet, I am humbly reminded that every day is a gift, and I need to walk in the Light. I need to let Him guide me through each day. I need to listen to His still, quiet voice...Yeah I know for me that's a stretch. I'm never still long enough to catch my breath.

As I write this, our dear neighbor of ten years is fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I am awed by the faith she has in God. I am humbled by the fight she has within her to beat the demon we know as cancer. Hunter, in his six year old wisdom said to me, "Mommy, why are you sad? We are just going to pray and Jesus is going to make her better." The faith of a child and the living testimony of one who is dwelling in God's amazing grace reminds me to walk daily in the His unfailing light.
