Friday Quick Takes 3-9-12

Missy L appears to be left handed. None of my other kids are. Not sure what we need to do to help her in our right handed house. Any advice?

Doomsday Preppers and all the worse case scenarios TV shows: where is the Christianity? The concern for thy fellow man? They are preparing to feed their own families, shoot anyone who dares come near, teach their children how to steal gas from others... EW!
Yes, I think we should take care of our families, but this extreme us against our neighbor to the death over supplies mentality worries me. People should help each other, not plan to survive at the demise of their neighbors.

So the election cycle this year is ugly, they say worse than ever, I doubt that. I have been a casual observer of politics for thirty years, it seems like they always do. We just know we have so much more at stake this time around. People should recall John Kennedy's words :
"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.
  My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

My husband is the sweetest person I know! He will drop everything for a person in need, not thinking of what it costs him in time and hassle to his day. He works very hard for his family - he is my hero!

Pine pollen: seeing the yellow dust explains how someone goes to bed healthy and wakes up with the worse congestion. Itchy eyes, runny noes, hopefully it will pass with the six days for rain forecasted, but then the mold allergies begin... Ah, spring!

We went to the Houston Coalition for Life Benefit Dinner last night - it was inspiring to say the least! We heard an incredible life story from a spokesperson from Silent No More, Julia Holcomb What a brave woman and mother! It was so generous for her to share her story. God's mercy is good
