Here is LillyBea 5 years ago today!  I can not believe she is already 5!! Tomorrow we go for her physical so she can enroll for kindergarden.  She is so excited.

I told her today I am going to make her a crown and she gets to be Queen Bea for the day.  She loves that idea.  Yes she is my namesake and the middle child.  I thought she was going to be my last baby and I knew no one else in my family would pass on the Bea name tradition.  Josh won't admit it but I know LillyBea is his faviorate. LOL Shhh.. I know they all are loved the same but it seems like Lilly is always going threw the "cute phase"  We try and not let it show that we think Lilly is the bee's knees lol.

Thought for Today

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Mother Teresa, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.

The Laugh


Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids?

If you're less than ten years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions. "How old are you?" "I'm four and a half." You're never 36 and a half...you're four and a half going on 5.

You get into your teens; now they can't hold you back. You jump into the next number. "How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16."

Then the great day of your life; you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. You BECOME 21...Yes!!!

Then you turn 30. What happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk. HE TURNED; we had to throw him out. What's wrong? What changed? You BECOME 21; you TURN 30.

Then you're PUSHING 40....stay over there. You REACH 50.

So you BECOME 21; you TURN 30; you're PUSHING 40; you REACH 50; then you MAKE IT to 60.

By then you've built up so much speed, you HIT 70. After that, it's a day by day thing. You HIT Wednesday...

You get into you're 80's; you HIT lunch, you HIT 4:30. My grandmother won't even buy green bananas. "Well, it's an investment, you know, and maybe a bad one."

And it doesn't end there...

Into the 90's, you start going backwards. "I was JUST 92."

Then a strange thing happens; if you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. "I'm 100 and a half."

And remember - growing old is only mind over matter: ifyou don't mind, it don't matter...


  1. Happy Birthday little bea, my sister Dena's birthday is today also.


  2. yup That age thing is interesting an dtrue even. Happy birthday lilly bea!!!!!!!!! How neat to have a five year old. Man Iw ish mine were all under 5
    I keep meaning to come back and tell you about the dacning thing. It may help you to read a book called ALL ISRAEL DANCES TOWARDS THE TABERNACLE> it teaches about dancing and if you read it and then get the pastor and others to read it then they may even start a danc ing class. It uses scripture to show that God does battle when we dance . Even when they attacked Israel went in the shape of an arrow and who was onthe front lines>>>>>>>>>>> The dancers!!!!!!!! YUP!!!!!!!! God won that battle for them.  Its very interesting. I think it would really be interesting for you. Lori
