Rest in Peace Precious Baby

Today, my family lost a precious baby girl.  
Miranda Lynn was only six months old.  
Please keep her parents, grandparents, family and friends in your prayers.

I REMEMBER YOU
The world may never notice, If a rosebud doesn't bloom:
Or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon.

But every life that ever forms, Or ever comes to be
Touches the World in some small way For all eternity.

The little ones we longed for Were swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted Is a light that still shines on.

And though our arms are empty, Our hearts know what to do
Every beating of my heart says "I Remember You"

Camera Critters: Cute Shelby

Camera Critters
Early this week, Shelby was sitting by me, being cute (as always).
I was trying to get her to look at the camera but she keep looking
towards the front door.  But that is ok, because I got two great
photos of her being cute!

Stuck In My Head: "Under Pressure" by Queen


Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure that burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Chippin' around, kick my brains 'round the floor
These are the days - it never rains but it pours
People on streets - people on streets

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming, "Let me out!"
Tomorrow gets me higher, higher, higher...
Pressure on people - people on streets

Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why, why, why?

Love

Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance?
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?..

'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure
