I know, I know, I have been a bad blogger the last few weeks. Well, last weekend was the Crop 2 Help Retreat , and it was great. I love hosting this event but I love more visiting with all my buddies. I talked, laughed, cried and hugged. Some of us have drama, in our lives, but for one weekend we forget or we talk about it. It is like therapy. We renew old friendships and discover new ones. I never complete alot on these retreats. I think it is the fellowship that brings many of us together again each year. We did have one funny event this year. We had a few new ladies to join us this year. One, had a 4 month baby at home and when someone dropped a plate, she slid in on her knees with a paper towel ready to clean up the mess. Almost like sliding into home plate, see there was two of us standing there trying to take care of it but Mrs Mommy is always ready. I wanted her and everyone else to relax and enjoy there time together. Leaving all the cooking and cleaning at home. Mommies need a weekend off every once in a while. And on Sunday afternoon, we said our goodbyes, back to our children, grandchildren, husbands, and work. They survived a weekend without us, my daughter had dinner started, house didn't look too bad and hubby was glad to see me. Oh, and I was maybe a little calmer, not so stressed, ready to take charge, maybe after a nap.

Days Gone By
Do you remember watching the telethons?
Watching the children and adults that was brought on to share their story.
The way families would sit for hours watching and not wanting to miss each tote board tally.
It was, in our family, a family event. We sat in our living room
watching every minute. The whole family watched.
We didn't contribute every year, but we watched and cheered for each and every penny that was given.
Children that went door to door, or had lemonade stands to raise money for Jerry's kids.
THEN, we had time, time to sit as a family and watch.
Time to go door to door, time to have a lemonade stand.
Today I am going to watch, if only for awhile to Jerry's Kids.
So take the time, on this Labor Day to Celebrate with Jerry.
