Last week my oldest son, Cole, attended Camp Blessing at Camp Holy Wild. For those who don’t know me or Cole. He is 21 and he is autistic. Cole hasn’t attended Camp Blessing before, this was his first year. He had some great separation anxieties which caused difficulties in the beginning but it turned out he had one of the best times ever. We went to the closing ceremony on Saturday to pick Cole up. I was so impressed by the love of everyone who worked at Camp Blessing. Almost everyone there was a volunteer who had given up their time so that these special need kids could have a great time. Cole even rode the zip line. At the moment Camp Blessing is renting camp space from other camps. They do have 78 acres in Tomball where they are planning to put in their own year round camp but that of course costs money. It would be great if you would like them on Facebook. The more exposure they get, the easier it will be for them to get donations. I think Camp Blessing was the best experience ever! I am thankful for everyone that worked there and that Cole was able to attend.

I found this post on another blog that I thought was funny & quite true so I thought I would share it with you.
For Christmas I thought it would be a good idea to get Gladys a dog for Christmas. Of course I bought her the dog, a black lab, and every time I hear about something she has done I regret buying her. She is the craziest dog ever besides Thomas’s dog BooBoo. Thomas is Gladys’s nephew that does shows for us. Gladys’s dog is named Sweets and she is far from being sweet. She is a very pretty dog but has absolutely no manners, she definitely needs to go to some kind of school. She loves to grab things with her mouth and run off. The other day she grabbed the salt shaker, of course it was upsde down and ran all of the house with it, dumping salt everywhere. Needless to say, Gladys was not very happy. I think she would make a good dog for sledding because once you put the leash on her she’ll pull you like there is no tomorrow. I’m positive that she would be able to win a dog sledding race if she were entered into one. Sweets definitely makes life more interesting.
