I know I haven't been writing, it is has been really hard, we are still working on the house. I promise I will try and do better. James shaved his beard (OH NO!!!) I will have to take a picture for you all tomorrow. He looks good though, he now just has a goatee. Rob is really tired he has been really working very hard on getting things done on the house. He is the type of person who doesn't like to leave things undone. It just stresses him out. I am just the opposite, my motto is "It get done eventually, no use stressing out about it. I have been wanting to just sit down and read a good book, if any of you have any suggestions let me know. I tell what has been the hardest thing, I have way too many clothes. Lots of them that I have kept over the years, things I would never wear now. I don't know why I held on to them. It must have been during my hoard period in life. After I got cancer, I didn't have a problem throwing things away. They weren't important any more. Now I throw away stuff without even thinking about it, I say, okay have I used it lately, if my answer is no, it gets tossed. I just say to myself, "Nope I can't take it to heaven with me". Where your treasure is, is where your heart is. I have treasure really rare treasures, Rob, Christina, Briana, Christopher, Garrett, James, Willie, Faith, Marianne, Jackson , Kadence, Taylor.....(J), The rarest of all treasure, and my MOM.

My baby aint a baby anymore

Willie graduated last Friday night. It seems like just yesterday I was walking him to kindergarten for the first time, and he wouldn't let me walk him to class. I cried like a baby when I got to the car. He has been fast forwarding ever since. I am so proud of him, he has set goals and achieved all them. Now the big world awaits him. I hope he always remembers, like all my children that I am never too far away, and that I will always be there when they need me. They are the best thing I ever accomplished in life. William Myles Gray I thank God everyday for blessing me and trusting me with you. Thanks for being around through the good and bad times. My God Bless you real good! And I hope you dance......and I always want the first one. I love you Willie.
