No comment.  Except that I sure do 
have a lot of work ahead of me.  
"Joy" is just one letter away from being "job".

Hope you all have a great day, 
filled with energy, happiness and joy, 
as you go about your jobs!

I started the sewing project today that I had been avoiding. Now I'm into it. The job is turning to joy.

My friend Lynn from Present Letters wrote the comment below. It shows up under my comments folder, but I don't know why it won't show up here:

Great pics Kathy! Looks like you had lots of good things to eat on Thanksgiving. And I love the idea with the baseball card binder things. Another project for me!

Kathy, I'm fine, just way BEHIND on visiting other bloggers. I hope we can all have a Holiday Season filled with JOY and not let all the JOBS that need to be done spoil it. I'm sure you too are busy, busy, busy. Take time to enjoy all the festive activities that make Christmas so special. Hugs. Mickie :)

I just sent two messages to people I know will pray for me. I feel overwhelmed by the writing I must finish before the end of the week along with other to-dos. I was look at them as job--now I'm going to begin working and look at it as JOY! Thank you, sweet friend, for posting a message from Jesus--just for me!

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video

Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
