R is for "Ramblings"

Oh my, what a day! Many who know me well, know I love football! During the NFL season my phamily has a T.V.  blarring in nearly ever room! I watched it with my father as a child and now I enjoy it as well, with my phamily!
Now you know I am getting ready to ramble! Not rumble, just ramble! But I will showcase my favorite NFL team my hometown Denver Broncos! Don't you just love Peyton Manning? Aside from getting an unsportsman like conduct fine to the tune of $8,200 for uttering a profanity to a Houston Texan player, the guy is practically sainted. He is an all around great guy who even visits his old stomping grounds in Indy to promote a favorite charity he had there in connection with a Children's Hospital.
Tim Tebow was a Denver Bronco for a short while. He also spent a few months with the Patriots and the Jets. People were offended. Spouting God while he played ball!  Talking about his faith. Being a Christian! Well, perhaps we need a few more Tim Tebows. Oh, I am not saying there are not a handful of great guys playing in the NFL. Problem is, there seems to be more trouble!
Brandon Marshall, a former Bronco and current Chicago Bear made headlines today.  Someone came forward stating back in 2006 Marshall abused his daughter who refused to press charges. Said he promised to marry her since they were in the 8th grade! Yikes! Do I condone beating women? Heck no! But why now? Oh yea, because Adrian Peterson of the Vikings and Ray Rice former Raven are already in trouble for child beating and wife beating respectively. What the heck is going on? Perhaps the NFL needs to implement a criminal background check. They do a full background check to become a school teacher. Why not to make millions in the NFL?
Awww...we love Wes Welker in Denver. He is a former Patriot and "supposedly" good friend of Tom Brady the Patriots QB!  Brady apparently offered to give up some of his own salary to keep Welker from going to Denver. The friendship is fleeting as Brady had a few choice words for Welker and his run in with the law for using Adderall. Ok, I don't condone drug use but I do know that this drug, used for children labeled ADD and ADHD offers the reverse effect on adults. Makes you filled with energy. So if we want to get judgmental let's talk illegitimate children in pro sports in  general! Tom Brady has one, his first born son in fact from actress Bridget Moynahan.  He later married a super model and lives a luxurious  lifestyle. So let's stop the name calling!
I hate to start naming names and then find out my heroes also have secret lives but there are some decent guys in the NFL. Lots of folks think Phillip Rivers, QB for the San Diego Chargers has too  many children! well, first of all he can afford it and two he is married to his middle school sweetheart!  Can you say, aw....a love story! Jay Cutler, a former Bronco and current QB for the Chicago Bears dislikes the media! In fact, he runs from them like he's running from the plague and he has a bad rap as a result. Jay likes his private life private and his team efforts just that! He was born in Santa Claus, Indiana. Just a little FYI in case you were interested! There are some good guys in the NFL, RG3 from the Redskins (which by the way will be sued by a congressman because they refuse to change their offensive name!)  No RG3 was married in Denver this summer! Aw.....There is Alex Smith  QB for the Chiefs.  He has a charity that sends foster teens to college. Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers.  Studious in college. Kind hearted in the NFL.

Feel free to add your own favorites if you choose. My ramblings go on for a moment to say what if we scrutinized politicians this way? Or bankers? Insurance companies? Ah ha! I knew I touched a nerve. It is something to ponder.....

Love is..../Blue Monday

I needed a back rub tonight. We had a hectic day at my office.  So I am super late putting this up but I will send it over to Sally to share my favorite blues from this weekend with everyone. I love this little Love is... too. I miss the days when more people put their favorite Love is...up.
Our little grandson Jayden celebrated his third birthday this weekend. He loves Buzz and Woody from Toy Store. His cake definitely was touched with blue.
, Tarrah's mom, bought Jayden this cute diner. I see some blue here too. This boy was busy putting his pizza in the oven! He is smart and has a wonderful imagination.
Here is Buzz Lightyear hanging around the picnic pavilion at the park. I noticed he has a touch or two of blue on his space uniform.
His grandpa Scott bought him this cool scooter with matching elbow and knee pads and helmet! That helmet was striking with blue!

Say hello to the all the blues today. I will be catching up with everyone this week.

P's and Q's for Ms. Jenny and Beverly at Pink Saturday

One of these days  I am hoping I will have more leisure time so I can create and post my thoughts in a timely fashion! Today I am combining last week's "P" for Ms. Jenny with this week's "Q".  I am also adding my Pink Saturday post here too. I really admire Jenny and Beverly, for their dedication to these weekly posts. They have done a really amazing job keeping these running for a long time. I hope we continue them for a long time to come.

I have combined my "P" for Princess  for Jenny with pink for Beverly.  I love these buttons I find at Face Book or that people share with me.

Ah, young  ladies today should follow this simple message!

LOL! I Just think this is too funny! I am not sure I know anyone brave enough to go to work, even on casual Friday, dressed in this manner! But I do love the tiara!

Ah.....the tiara! I think most girls dream of having one of these!

I have looked like this many days, laugh out loud, but I truly need to get a haircut! I feel like "Cousin It" from the Addams Family T.V. I just haven't found the time to cut my hair!

I love "Queenisms", I am learning to follow some of these and take care of me. I am always taking care of everyone else and  there is nothing left for me.

I thought Princesses and Queens would be a great combination for Alphabe Thursday!

Please visit Jenny and Beverly soon and lots of their followers too.

New American Standard Bible
Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

Prayer requests for  my phamily please. Some difficulties that require prayer. Prayers for those who are suffering around the world and being persecuted for their faith.

Love is.../Blue Monday

Hi, you will be shocked today! A very short post for me! I tend to get "wordy"! LOL!

I was challenged at Facebook to do the five day challenge and post three things that make my heart grateful. This Love is... says it best! I miss all the gals who use to participate in Love is...If you have them or love them share one with me please.
Found this at pinterest. The pale blue touches adds such elegance to this gorgeous vanity. I would sit there, even for a few minutes a day, and just dream! Sigh! Please tell Blue Monday and sweet smiling Sally you want to share some blue too. Have a super day everyone!

Someone I love lots needs to see this.

Love is.../Blue Monday

 Love is....singing your favorite song together in the car. When we do a road trip we listen to lots of different music and sometime we even sing along!
Love is...what lies ahead. We should concentrate on today. Not worry about tomorrow and don't dwell on the past.  Love will always bring us together. 

As you do not know the path of the wind , or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the maker of all things. Ecclesiastes 11:5 NIV
This was the view from our last 34 miles home last May when we traveled to Kansas to pick up Nick. It was a quick trip. We counted those last few miles because we had been blessed with decent weather and wanted to arrive safely home before the new weather brought tornadoes, hail, high winds and damage across our state.

We always love a beautiful blue sky and thought it would be a nice share for Sally and the Blue Crew gang!
