I said, "You mean a party?"
Mom says, "No he does not want to have a birthday. He says, 'I not get older. I stay this old. I not peepee in the potty. I not go to school! So his mom told him 'No birthay, No party, No presents.' His response was, 'I no care...I NOT get any bigger!' Can you believe it?"
I definitely could not believe it. Who doesn't want presents...or I guess more appropriately who is so against getting older that they will turn down gifts. In a word...Colton. I am most certainly thankful for that boy. He knows who he is...what he wants...and how to get it...so amazing!

My aunt and I had a long talk last night about the role God plays in my life. I have been struggling with the seemingly endless roadwork being done on my life. I think I have a handle on the detours that I have to make for now and then another branch of the road gets closed and all traffic had to be redirected...AGAIN. I consider myself a pretty flexible...roll with the punches kind of person...but everyone has a limit and I am rapidly approaching mine. Madge tenderly mentioned that it might be possible that I am trying desperately to control an uncontrollable situation and if I would just truly turn it over to God everything would get easier. So easy to say...Harder than hell to accomplish! So everyday, I complete this exercise in thankfulness...but I also ask God to steer my life where it needs to go and help me to develop the trust and patience needed to simply close my eyes and put ALL my faith in him. I'll keep everyone posted on my progress!
Good night all
