funniest card award

The funniest birthday card award for this year, goes to.....drum roll please,



Kartwright,



for this Star trek edition





The front says:


"Analysis, Spock.


If all the candles on that cake were to be lit simultaneously....

And the inside says....audibly says.....




"ANNIHILATION JIM....TOTAL, COMPLETE, ABSOLUTE, ANNIHILATION!" (in Spock's real voice)


The written words say, "have a safe and happy birthday."




and as if that was not enough humiliation for my second born son of my womb to heap on the very head of his endearing, albeit aging mother, he writes:





"hey momma you have just been such a great freind, mentor, teacher, and momma. I can't tell you how much I enjoy our long talks, and discusions. (although my spelling is bad, you might have been able to do better with that!) Love Kartwright"




I should have done better with the hand writing also apparently!




Ya gotta love that boy!!



Now, for my thankfuls of the day, please join in!

Today I am grateful for:
- Kartwright, his sense of humor, and that he lives in the age of computers, where he can compensate for his hand writing!
- Little girls that play "beauty parlour" with stuffed otters and various other fluffy fake beasts in the family room.
- Yummy creamy corn chowder on a very cold night last night
- My new pink birthday Sony cybershot - love it!!!
- That there are so very many things to be grateful for in this crazy mixed up world we live in

What are you grateful for today?

Amy, I cannot tell you what an encouragement it is to me to know that your son has spelling issues. Seriously, I have been praying for wisdom regarding how much more therapy do we deal with for learning difficulties and asking God for some hope. Seeing Kartwright's printing and spelling is my hope. I know my boy is super smart; it just doesn't always show itself in his academics. Thanks for sharing this; it reminds me that I don't need to seek perfection, just excellence. And there is a difference.

Today I'm thankful...
-that God always, always hears me
-for answered prayer, even when it's not the result I'm looking for
-that my grandmother prayed faithfully for my salvation. Today is her birthday, and it's her first one in heaven!
-for growing boys and six meals a day!
