Friday Fill Ins

1. If I could be a fly on the wall I would be intrigued to see the inside of the White House and what really goes on in the Oval Office; it would be cooler to do that back in time, during Lincoln's, Roosevelt's, or Kennedy's era.

2. Jealousy is
one of my many vices. Lately, I've been overcome with it, when it comes to people who have cooperative uteruses. It hurts my head to hear people say, oh we had to wait so long, we had to try for 3 whole months. Seriously? 4 years and some change for Chris, and we never did not try for number #2, but I guess we got Serious in November when I got my lupron shot.

3. When I see a shooting star my wish would be that all babies could be born healthy, that, or that Chris could get healthy and be the shining star I know he is.

4. I'd rather be cold than hot any day! I had to steal that from Suellen. My personal theory, is that when cold, you can always add more clothing, or curl up in bed with the heated mattress pad on full blast. But when you're hot, you can only take so much off....

5. Certain songs when I hear them make me wanna cry. I know, I have the reputation of "Cathy the crier." It wasn't just motherhood, I was a crier before, and music in particular just touches me deeply. Actually I just heard one on the way home from the zoo that made me tear up good, perhaps a turning point, it just reminded me once more who really is in control, and though I may be in a valley, I can always climb up:

Mountain of God, by Third Day
Thought that I was all alone
Broken and afraid
But You were there with me
Yes, You were there with me

And I didn't even know
That I had lost my way
But You were there with me
Yes, You were there with me

'Til You opened up my eyes
I never knew
That I couldn't ever make it
Without You

Even though the journey's long
And I know the road is hard
Well, the One who's gone before me
He will help me carry on
After all that I've been through
Now I realize the truth
That I must go through the valley
To stand upon the mountain of God

As I travel on the road
That You have led me down
You are here with me
Yes, You are here with me
I have need for nothing more
Oh, now that I have found
That You are here with me
Yes, You are here with me

I confess from time to time
I lose my way
But You are always there
To bring me back again

Sometimes I think of where it is I've come from
And the things I've left behind
But of all I've had, what I possessed
Nothing can quite compare
With what's in front of me
With what's in front of me

(After final Chorus)
I thought that I was all alone
Broken and afraid
But, You are here with me
Yes, You are here with me.

6. If time were in a bottle, I'd develop a large bottle collection. Then I'd go dipping into many of them, with a string to pull my way out.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to driving up to Peru, Indiana and visiting Jason, Denise, and Samantha (who has apparently been practicing "Hi Chris", tomorrow my plans include Seeing the Peru Circus Parade, and Chris's First Circus, and Sunday, I'd love a nap, but realistically impossible. We have too many other wonderful things planned: greeting at church, and My Mom and I are catching the Gem Show at the State Fairgrounds...."oooh, itsa sparklie!" Messiah's VBS starts also that night, Pirates who don't do anything, is the theme, and somehow Eric and I "volunteered" to lead the skits and songs for the openings and closings all week long. Woo hoo!
