The Weekend

I had the best weekend that I have had in a long time, first on the agenda, going to the St Baldricks event where the Irishman gave up his red beard and hair to raise funds for cancer research to defeat the disease in children. If you cannot ascertain from how much I have talked about it, I will say it plainly, I am incredibly proud of him for putting himself out there like this and participating and raising funds for this worthy cause.
Jess showed up, so double the fun and afterwards we decided to go to the movies. We went to see The Lincoln Lawyer with Matthew McConaughey; it is like he saved all of his acting chops for this role. Nothing short of amazing, I would highly recommend this movie to all adults out there. I read the book years ago and they stayed pretty true to the book, an enjoyable way to while away the afternoon.
Then on Sunday, I got to spend time not only with Elizabeth but Jeffrey and his family as well. Now that was a treat. No one tells you how much you miss your children when they grow up, I miss spending time with Jeffrey and Elizabeth, they have grown up to be incredible adults, and no I am not just saying that because I am their mother. I am saying that because it is true, I don’t know why I was chosen to be their mom, I am just happy I was chosen to be their mother.
I do not believe it is luck having good kids, I believe good kids are made, it is how you raise them and it is hard work. You cannot have children and ignore their religious upbringing and expect them to know who God and Jesus are instinctually, you raise them in church and teach them about religion, the bible and give them a good moral foundation. Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6, hmmm that bible, one can learn a lot from it.
So my weekend was good, I hope everyone else had a good weekend as well.
