Thanks be to Google, I now have an answer. Click on the above website and just read about it. Very interesting in a history class sort of way. It has put meaning to the State observed holiday. Not all government entities get this day, but here at work we want to support the state in any way we can:) Too bad hubby and kids are not off today:) Shame on me:)
As for the day off, I guess I should visit the graves of these fallen men and decorate with flowers as did Ms. Willliams, but I don't know where to find them around here. I'll pay tribute to them by dedicating this blog post to honor all the soldiers who died fighting for the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War.
Now, what to do with a free day?

UPDATE: So much for the picture......he nabbed him this morning and already disposed of him before I could get the sleepy out of my eyes:) lol!!!!!!!!!!!! At least now I know he ain't in the car, and I can drive with my feet on the floor!

Wal-Mart special.....I think it was around $12 bucks. Love it!! You can just throw everything in it....like all necessary first aid equipment. Plus, it comes in a cool yellow, green and black too. What was a thinking not getting the yeller....since I'm in a yeller mood with the paint and new blog face. The red just jumped out at me I guess....always go with your first instinct!
That's way enough on me....now it's your turn!!

This is for Lisa. She scolded me for not putting a pic of my attempt at home improvement last week. Sorry, it's just that I want to add some curtains and frill it up a bit, but I'll go ahead and show you the high yeller room.
I'll show pics of the bathroom when I get the mirrors hung:)
Have a nice day!
P.S. I need to work on the lamps....they need to swap sides of the bed.....and lose the green lamp...I'm in search for another lamp anyways:) lol!!!!!!!!!!!!! I plan to paint the side table, need a rug and curtains! Do you have any more suggestions for me? I need all the help I can get?

And we got over it! Thanks to Lisa and her wonderful and inspiring lessons. God really showed up at this retreat! We had a great time...one filled with more laughs, cries, testimonies and singing one could stand. It was just some good 'ole girl time with the Lord. I can't express enough how much I appreciate my friend K for inviting me and my sisters to tag along with her on this weekend get-a-way, and for IB Church for hosting this event. Although they are not my home church, they made me/us feel so welcome. We are all sisters in Christ and marching on the same road together in this life. What encouragement we can draw from one another....hearing that someone else is having the same feelings, struggles, pain and life in general, as you are.
I just can't praise Him enough!
Love to all,

Update: I'm thankful for the picnic lunch I just had with my Mom and Mawmaw. We had BK Whopper with fries! Those two are a pair......I've got pics to prove it! For Mom to be able to drive herself the 30.7 miles, or 40 minutes, to get to Mawmaw, is quite a blessing! For that....I'm thankful!
With all the prayer requests that I have posted about, how can I not......not reserve Thursday to thank the Lord for his blessings.
So, here it goes:
1. Thank you Lord for saving my soul as a young girl.
2. Thank you Lord for sending me my Hubby!
3. Thank you Lord for my wonderful boys!
4. Thank you Lord for allowing Mom to live through her heart attack and keeping her safe thus far. And for what you are going to do for her in the future.
5. Thank you Lord for my parents, grandmother, siblings, in-laws, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins. I love you all so much!
6. Thank you Lord for my friends. I love you all dearly!
7. Thank you Lord for my church and the family that I get to fellowship and worship with each Sunday.
8. Thank you Lord for providing me an opportunity to get to spend a weekend with the girls and hear your Word and feel your Holy Spirit.
9. Thank you Lord for our health.
10. Thank you Lord for the rain.
11. Thank you Lord for your beautiful creation, Earth, and all it's glory.
12. Thank you Lord for all the miracles you have performed in my life.
13. Thank you Lord for allowing me to sing praises to your name.
14. Thank you Lord for providing a roof over our heads and food on the table and shoes on our feet.
15. Thank you God for sending your precious Son to die on the cross for my sins and that He rose from the grave and is sitting at your right hand interceding for me.
I love you Lord!

I'm so excited I can't hardly stand myself! My friend K and thepreacherswife, invited me and my sisters to join her to a ladies retreat this upcoming weekend! With Mom in her condition, we are very hesitant in going, but Mom insisted that she was fine and we could not put our lives on hold. Yeah right Mom, we'll just forget about you....NEVER! But she is doing rather well, so off we go!
I was fortunate enough to get to go last year and had a ball!! Not to mention all the wonderful food, fellowship and spiritual renewing! Lisa you rock as a speaker/teacher/motivator, etc! I am praying for you and know that God will speak through you to touch our hearts and souls, so we can return as better/stronger Christian wives, Mothers, sisters, friends, workers...and on and on! I still thumb through my Bible and see notes I jotted down from last years retreat.
The boys are quite excited too! House to themselves, no having to brush their teeth, clean up, and eat desserts first! I feel their excitement too! My only dread is what I'll come home to.......nightmares actually! Anyway, it will be worth whatever price I have to pay, as far as the mountain of clothes that will greet me at the back door, when I arrive home! No toss up here......clothes vs. 2 nights away? No contest:)!!!!
I read an email from Cousin M that really spoke to me this morning!
"Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain." "True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be." "The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have."
God just spoke through that to me, saying, "no matter what comes your way, I'm there, always have, always will be." "Trust me, I will see you through." With that, I can leave home, with the comfort that no matter what happens with Mom, God is in control and he will show me how to dance in the rain!
Take my hand precious Lord!
Love to all,
