Me, like it or not

I have been thinking a lot lately. And I just want to say something tonight. I am very frustrated with people and the way they treat each other. Why do we hate each other because we are different? Why do our differences tear us apart? Why can't we accept that we do not think the same or believe the same and move on? I want everyone to know that I am ME. And I like it. I am not about to change, no matter how much you want me to. I answer only to myself and to God. This is me, take it or leave it. I love my children, I love my husband, I love God. And I am happy with those things. I love people, I love my friends. I love to help people and serve where I can. I have so much more in my life that some people in the world and I want to share. I am terribly shy, but I love getting to know people and learn from them. There are so many things I can learn from the people in my life. I know am not perfect. I have many many weaknesses. But, believe it or not, I also have many strengths. I am a good person. I try hard. I work hard. There are many people out there who don't think so and to them I say "Go to Hell." I am tired of letting other people's opinions of me color my opinion of myself. I deserve to be treated with respect. Someday I may be brave enough to let go of the people that only bring me down. For now I will work on myself and my own weaknesses. That's all I can do. We'll see what changes come of it.

Thanks for letting me rant

Hi Baby!

Hi daddy!
Isn't this a great photo to start with? Are you a little glad you're in Nebraska, not here listening to this? He is cute though and I kind of just want to laugh when I see his face!
Sam said he wanted to show you his sparkly dress. And he wanted me to take pictures of him dancing around in his sparkly dress. So here he is. He's posing-Cheese!

While I was taking a photo of Sam saying "Cheese", I heard Jack behind me saying "Cheese cheese cheese." So he is actually posing and saying "cheese" in this photo. So cute! Of course it's blurry because he wouldn't hold still!

All day he has been climbing in the baby swing, making it swing, standing up, falling out, etc. It's been annoying. I actually had to move it into the library because I was tired of him getting into it!
And right now they are banging metal sticks on the metal chairs in the dining room! I am going to scream! Agh. Time to take those sticks away. Well, we love you R-Jay and I hope you have a great night. I will get a photo of the dishes later. I didn't get a chance before I posted this! Later love! Jamie and Sam and Jack
PS-a couple cute photos I thought you'd just like see tonight. Love you!
