Happy Anniversary

I talked with Allison, Brendon's mom briefly yesterday. She said that Brendon is about the same. No major changes. Please keep on praying for Brendon and his family.
Today Rob and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary. He is a wonderful husband and dad, I am so blessed to be his wife. Here are some pics from my computer camera that we took a couple of months ago.

We went out to dinner last night to celebrate, actually we went out to dinner to Carino's which is our favorite Monday night place to eat. Monday night family meal deal, Sophie went with us and she wanted something with shrimp, so we ordered the scampi for the meal price of $14.95, the family meal deal comes with bread and salad and the meal which serves about 4 people. So we had a nice dinner, with our daughter who talks constantly, but we were never lacking for conversation no matter how one sided it was. We splurged on dessert and had the Chocolate Cannoli, we were celebrating our anniversary after all. I said "leave the gun and take the canolli," atleast 5 times. It is standard for me to quote the Godfather when I am eating canolli.
My friend Sarah and I are reviewing the book, Same Kind of Different As Me, at Wesley Court tomorrow, so I picked it back up to re-read yesterday. I will hopefully finish it today.
I will leave you with a couple of sentences from Page 90.

"Often driving up to the mission, we'd see Dallas standing alone in a parking lot across the street...., his face a stone slate. A couple of times I overheard people saying this loner was crazy and not to mess with him. Deborah wrote his name in her bible, next to Ecclesiastes 9:15; "There was found in a certain city a poor man who was wise, and by his wisdom he saved the city.'"

I think to be able to see people from God's perspective and not the worlds perspective is a great gift. Father let my eyes see like you do.
