Thankfully, I have never had a heart attack. I think I must have inherited my Grandfather’s heart (whose brain died, but heart kept beating afterward).
Sad to say, my beloved Grandmother did die of a heart attack when I was just 7 years old.
My favorite memories of her also include her charm, sense of humor, passion for cooking and feeding her family as well as the special times we would watch the March of the Tin Soldier together. I just miss that woman so much and wish she would have known about the signs of a heart attack. Maybe she might still be alive today.
For those of you who don’t know, below is a little movie that shows you what the symptoms of a heart attack are. I get a kick out of this movie, because (minus the heart attack) I am so familiar with the craziness of how her morning unfolds. Happens every day, but just with more kids.
Please feel free to pass this along and have a great day!
Tonight, the Oscars are on and although I am not the biggest fan, I do glance at the show while flipping thought the channels.
I could not help but find this story so interesting!
The woman who gave Elvis his first on screen kiss finds happiness….in a convent!
Pretty interesting story and funny how life sometimes turns around as she will be hitting the Red Carpet tonight!
What is meant to be is meant to be and this Nun belongs, for tonight anyway, on the Red Carpet!

As some of you may know, I have 7 kids with my wonderful hubby. I first gave birth to a son, Gavin Michael. He a full of life, kid, and has more energy than most people know what to do with. Sometimes, including me. My husband and I are very proud to say that we are parents of a Missionary, as he is in his 2nd year of NET, The National Evangelization Team, a group of young adults who minister to the youth of Middle School and High School.
Anyway, he travels all over the US, as the Music Minister for Team 9, a group of 6 girls and 5 guys. He recently got his iPod stolen from him (for some unknown reason) and it was held ransom by his “Sisters” until he wrote a song for them. (Gavin is very talented that way, with perfect pitch and, in my opinion, a pretty good ability to write lyrics!) Here is the song he wrote to get it back. 🙂
I was treated to a Brownie Ceremony yesterday at my local public school. My Daughter is a part of troop that meets there a couple of times a month.
They had a little play that told the legend of the Brownies,
They got some new badges,
and said the Girl Scout Law posted above…
I was very proud that our Troop stuck to the original Law and did not change any words. It was recited just as I recited it as a Girl Scout myself. It is interesting to realize that all those years ago, when I was in Girl Scouts, it must have had a profound enough effect on me that I still strive to live by their rules to this day. Do I keep and follow every rule? Of course not….but I do strive to follow them and am disappointed when I do not.
I will do my best to be:
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout!
