Friday Fragments

Finally, Friday is here! This Friday is special, because by this time next week, we will have entered the magical month of March and spring will not be far off. I think everybody is ready!

Mommy's Idea

I think I enjoyed the Olympics better when I didn’t know every single detail about the lives of the Olympians…..or every time one frown at another. Now if Tonya Harding shows up, give me a call. The Kerrigan family has already suffered enough heartache for this Olympic season.

Bailey (9 y/o) and Jacob (5y/o) were boxing each other on the Wii and Aubrey (6 y/o) had the karaoke mic, acting as the sports announcer! Nice! She says, "That was a great game! This is Aubrey Davis and my middle name is Faith!"

Favorite Story of the Week ~



"…a lot of companies are passed on within the family. That's how I think about it; it's just part of the family. I have employees right now that have been with me for thirty years. They were committed to staying with me, and now, the most logical thing is that they are going to own the company."



Bob Moore, owner of Bob's Red Mill Natural Foods company in Portland, Oregon, had a very special gift for his 200 employees last week. He gave them the company.

It was the company Bob had built from scratch on his own, with his own money. According to the ABC News report, the gift was worth "hundreds of thousands of dollars for each employee—including the janitors."

Story


Wades Wisdom ~

The FOLD cycle on the clothes dryer isn't working.



Please let Grandma C know many of us are praying for a quick recovery!

And finally ~

I am so tired of multiplication! I want the boys to just “get it.” Then I am reminded that the Bible says, “Precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little~” and He was dealing with supposedly “card carrying adults.” I’m sure there are times when He wishes I would just “get it” too!

Enjoy your weekend!

Blessings,

  1. Hey my fold cycle doesn't work either, must be a conspiracy with the dryer companies. They want us to spend money on another machine or pay a housekeeper.

  2. Yeah you definitely have to get used to Wordpress. But i'm keeping my blogger one too. Some of my online friends said they were having a HARD time seeing my blogger blog.
    So, I made a Wordpress blog. I wanted to see what the fuss was all about.
    Thanks for leaving a comment! I LOVE comments!

  5. I enjoy the human interest stories on the Olympics because then when the featured olympians loses, or wins for that matter, I cry. Crying is one of my hobbies as I do it for different reasons a few times per week. It is my way of saying I;m happy (or sad, or mad, or tired, or hungry, or pretty much anything). And yes, I'm as emotionally distraught as a 2 year old and I always have been. Being one of those annoying girls who cries for EVERYTHING is hard, but someone's gotta do it!

  10. Cheryl,

    First I want you to know that when I found your comment you left on yesterday's post, I cried. It is truly humbling to me to think that someone who doesn't even know me would fast and pray for a day for me. Thank you so much.

    I enjoyed the sports commentary that your three did! Love the "and my middle name is Faith" from Aubry! Too cute!

    I love using Red Mill's products...have used them for years now. He's got a heart of gold!

    I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!

  22. My fold cycle is grumpy and doesn't LIKE to work... but it does anyways because the apartment is really too little to have piles of clothes all over *L*

    I think that's really amazing about Bob Moore giving the company to his employees. You don't see generosity like that in companies very often anymore!
