In June of last year (2013) my son Jessie came out to spend the whole month with me. I was so very excited. Also in June my parents brought two of my nieces with them and spent over two weeks out here visiting. Splitting their time between me and my sister Valerie who lives about 30 miles from me, Jessie and my nieces got to see and do so many fun activities with all of us.
Since there are so many things to tell you about I will have to break this up into different parts so as not to make one huge long post that will take forever to read. So this post is Part 1 of Summer 2013.
The first family activity took place on June 8th one of the first days after everyone arrived. We took the family to Mineral Wells State Park for some kayaking and fishing. Considering it was June, the temperature was very nice and tolerable. The kids had a blast! Dad and Mom seemed to really enjoy it as well. I enjoyed having everyone around and watching them have so much fun!

Three weeks ago my beautiful 6 year old niece Lilly was diagnosed with Leukemia. It came as a shock for all of my family. It is so hard to watch her struggle and be so sick. I would take it away in an instant if I could. However, she is such a strong little girl even though she is going through so much right now. She is an inspiration to me.

Please pray for her, her parents, and her little sister Emery as they make this heart wrenching journey to wellness!

You might be asking why I haven't posted anything for many months?
Well as you know I have been in school and working full time and that has pretty much absorbed my whole life for a few years now.
But guess what? I am now an official college graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Forensic Accounting. Yee haw!!! So happy to have accomplished this, which I never thought I would.
So now I have created a task list of all the projects that need to get worked on, one of those is catching up my blog. I have so much to tell you about!
I hope I haven't lost all my blog followers? Hang on... I will be back soon with some updates on this past year. Thanks for all of you who have hung with me.

If you don't already know, I work at a bank. A few months ago one of our female customers who is on a fixed income and can't work due to a disability came into the bank. One of our tellers was helping her while I was helping another man. The lady asked the teller how much money she had in the bank for which the teller informed her that she had $8.50. The lady then informed the teller that she would like to withdraw all but the 50 cents but wanted to make sure that wouldn't cause her account to be closed. The teller gave her the money and the lady left.
Meanwhile, I was helping a man who happened to not even be one of our customers but was only there depositing money into an account that did belong to one of our customers. After I completed his transaction he opened his wallet and took all of his cash out and handed it to me asking me to please make sure it got deposited into that lady's account that just left. He said it wasn't much but was all that he had at the time. And with that he left. He wasn't a customer so we didn't even know his name. He was a stranger helping another stranger in need.
And with that both me and the other teller broke out into tears. What an amazing thing to do for a stranger! What he gave me to deposit may not seem like much to him, but could mean that lady may have enough for another meal when she may have had to go without. It was really touching! And it renewed my faith in people.
This example reminds me of a song by Alabama "Angels Among Us". Here are a few lyrics.
I believe that man was an angel that day! His example makes me want to be a better person!
