Good causes....

Families who have lost children have been on my mind and in my heart lately. Several years ago my former boss volunteered me to do a fundraiser for March of Dimes....which is an organization that helps get Preemies the best care possible through research. So on the day that I did this....I got picked up in a military vehicle and taken to "Jail" It was a fake jail where we sat and called people for donations. These people had to get us out of Jail with their donations. :) It's all in good fun and for a very good cause. Anyway, I enjoyed my time there and all the people I called were really nice whether they donated or not. Up until this point, I didn't know much about March of Dimes and little did I know that years down the road I would have two preemie Nieces! March of Dimes has a fundraiser walk I'd like to do. I've been wanting to do it for some time but now with it being so personal to me I'm really going to go for it. I really really want to do a Breast Cancer walk too. I think of my cousin Shelly who lost her life to this cancer and I'd like to do it in her honor. Life is about helping others and I truly feel my best when I'm doing just that. If anyone is interested in walking with me for one or both of these causes...just let me know!! I don't have a date yet but am checking into it. :)

You step in dog poopie?? yucky!! but oh well. See...there are a lot of ohwell's in life!! I'm trying to use mine more. :)

I'm feeling tired and a bit overwhelmed by the events of the last few days. It's such a blessing to have the girls here now...yet the road ahead will be long. I can't wait to see them and hold them and I know it'll be a long time from now. I can't even imagine how Vicki and Walid are feeling. It's like they've had the wind knocked out of them. They went down to see the girls today and said it was very hard seeing them hooked up to so many wires. Than the sweeties started to cry and so of course that just ripped their hearts out. Through all of this I've come to three conclusions....God is AWESOME....Miracles do happen...and my family is wonderful. The love and support we give each other is really nice. We're in no way perfect...but we love each other and always will. I can't imagine my life without my sister...and now I can't imagine life without her daughters. I love them so much already. :)

Much has happened since I left my last blog. The boys are now five and three and as cute as ever! Bill is in is third year of school, going for his bachelors. And me...hmmm I've seemed to have found myself a bit more and am a lot more content than when I was last writing. With that being said...I've decided to once again manage a family blog! I have my worries...but shoot...let's not sweat the small stuff shall we? I've grown a lot...ok I'm still 5'5 or 5'4 (depending on who measures me) but my soul has come a long way. I take it a day at a time and more than anything moment by moment...because at the Conner clan household you never know what waits around the corner :) So welcome to my piece of reality. I'll do my best to share it with you all and I'll try not to quit when the going gets rough.
