“Treasures are found in the heart” is a saying that I recently heard and it brought my grandfather to mind, and the times spent in Ohio. It also reminded me of want my brother wrote on his blog about our grandfather, also about my niece not getting an opportunity to get to know him. And even though our grandfather is no longer with us physically, he gave this family an enormous amount of treasures that are in our hearts forever, with our help, my niece will get a chance to know him, and what he meant to our family. Thank you grandpa for the treasures, and to my brother and mother, thank you for writing about him on your blogs because it just means that we are still gathering treasures.

Taking a Holiday

The 4th of July holiday is six days away and our leaders in Washington decide to head out of town early, leaving behind unsolved issues mainly the rising gas prices and foreclosures which are hitting a all time high. Everyone deserves time off, but there are times when you have to make sacrifices and the crisis that we are in is one of those times. It is a sad day when our elected officials feel that it is more important to go on vacation than it is to stick around to come up with some type of solution for the ever growing problem. I guess they thought that giving everyone a stimulus check was the solution. Well it is not, Congress was hoping that people would spend that money to help the economy and not use it pay bills or put the money in the bank. It sure is hard to think about spending money on that big screen TV when you do not have a place to call home. We are the ones making sacrifices while Congress takes a holiday. Thanks for nothing, remember us when it is election time. Again Congress thanks for having your priorities straight, because we would not what you to be stressed out. Just leave that to us!!!!!

LIFE is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason.. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Family and Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you can't get them back. So tie them close to your heart so you never lose them.

Friday vs Monday

At the end of any sporting event, you see the competitors demonstrate sportsmanship by shaking hands. However, I watched the coaches for Florida State University Seminole baseball team blatantly show a lack of sportsmanship when the team was eliminated from the College World Series.

I watched the players for both teams shake hands, at the same time the coaches for the winning team stood at home plate waiting to shake hands with there counterparts. Instead, the coaches for FSU chose to stay in the dugout and refused to extend that sportsmanship that was being displayed by there players.

Florida State Seminole Baseball team and their fans have no reason to hang there heads; this was a great season.
However, thanks to the lack of sportsmanship shown a slight tarnish has been put on the season. The last image you have is not of the humbleness of the FSU players and there hard work and dedication to get here, but of their coaches refusing to come out of the dugout. Is there disappointment and let down when you lose; of course, but that is never a reason to show a lack of graciousness in losing. Many teams and players wish they could have the same opportunity that FSU had this year, so for the coaches to leave that last impression all I can say how very disappointing.
