Aurora Theater Tragedy

Oh my goodness my heart is breaking for everyone.  I can't understand why a 24 year old man would shoot and kill inside a movie theatre. I have shed tears and I don't normally cry. As a mom this hits so close to my heart.  I so hope at some point the shooter will share why he would murder and shoot children and adults he did not know.   Are we going to be scared of going out in large crowds? Sure makes one wonder how safe we are in a world of unstable people.  I for one do not want to be afraid of what ifs. But as a responsible person and mom I do believe we need to be aware of our surroundings.
Again I want to say my thoughts and prayers are going out to everyone who this tragedy has touched in one way or another. God bless America!

Missing my youngest son

Trevor went to spend a week with hisUncle Eddie and his cousins. He left last Sunday and wasonly going to be gone one week. I was going to go get him this weekend. Well that sure didn't happen...He is staying till July 24th and his Aunt Ginger is going to Lubbock Texas and will bring Trevor back with her.  Which is great, but it seems like a long time for my 13 year old to be away from home. No  he won't get homesick at all. It's all me missing him.
I haven't been to work in weeks or at least it feels like it.  Summer months at flower shop is normally slow, so I am not to excited about not working. Have been taking advantage of my free time. Which means I have been taking advantage of that by working on friendship books, working on swaps for swap bot, mailing out postcards for postcrossing and writing pen pal letters. I had been wantingto join walltype for awhile. They finally opened up membership and I got excepted! Sent off my first postcard today! Over there you can send off one postcard a day, which is awesome. On postcrossing I can only have 10 postcards traveling at one time.  Which means I have 10 out right now, hopefully a few will get registered soon.
Everyone have a wonderful and safe weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

What a wonderful I had today!  I got up and went to the Marlow Okla 4th of July parade. Blake rode his brand new razor, and Aaron rode his 4 wheeler.  My nephew Coby rode Trevor's 4 wheeler, and Papa Kendall drove his newer corvette in the parade.  Papa Kendall is a veteran. Although he doesn't talk much about what he saw and such while over in Vietnam. 
I want to give a shout out to all the members of the service.  Thanks for all the hard work and dedication you do for America!
I went to my Aunt Sandra's for several hours and visited with my mom's side of the family.  Had a wonderful time.  Then I went over to my cousin's and stayed from 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm.  My step mom was there as well as my brother Thomas and his wife Dana and their 5 kiddo's.  Was really nice to relax and laugh with my family.  The best part was the homemade icecream! It tasted so very good.  Ok I should add here that I do not know how to even make homemade icecream. How unamerican is that I ask you?  I may just go buy a icecream maker and learn how to this summer. 
At 8:30 pm I went to Tammie and Dan's to watch the fireworks.  The sky was filled with fireworks all over Stephens county. 
Hope everyone had a blessed 4th of July!
