A little of my life

This bail-out thing is not looking good to me. I don't know about you, but for our government to -- all of a sudden -- start using taxpayer money to bail out companies that are in trouble seems wrong to me. Of course, next week there will be other news, but this does seem to be a problem. What do you think?

I want to say how blessed I feel to be able to work with people on their marriages and other problems in their life. It makes me so humble to know that they will actually travel to get counseling. I know that when someone is in turmoil, they need to get that taken care of before they can go on dealing with other aspects of their lives. We need to appreciate our own life when it is stable and balanced.

I'd like to introduce my family: my husband: (DH), Gary, draws houseplans for a living. He works very hard for he and I to have a good life. He actually built our house with his own two hands. He had some land in the country (30 acres) left to him by his father and allowed to use by his mother, and he decided to go ahead and build his dreamhouse on the pond. He started building about six years ago. Then he and I met, married, and began planning our life together. I had always wanted to live in the country, and he made it a reality for me. We moved in two and one-half years ago.

Here is our house in the country: with two cats in the yard -- life used to be so hard -- now everything is easy 'cause of you...... (remember that song?)

It's still not completely finished, but most of it is. He has a workshop behind the garage that is not finished yet. I know he will enjoy it so much when we do get it done. He had a workshop in his last house, and really used it a lot. He builds anything you can imagine from wood. He has built furniture -- reproduction furniture like beds, high boys, etc. He also plays keyboard, he is the most talented musician anywhere. You would say so, too, if you heard him. I'll show you here one day. He is a good Christian man, loves his children, and my children and my grandchildren. (That is a real plus for him, huh?) He lets me keep my goats and even enjoys them, too. I feel blessed to have found him.
I'll write about my children and grandchildren later. Are you ready to be blown away? They are really great!
