♥♥♥ A Great Love Story♥♥♥

You may or may not have heard this story. I received it in an email the other day and even though I had heard it before It is such a heart warming story I felt it needs to told again...

A heart warming story about an Iowa boy and girl and according to Snopes, it is true...
KURTIS THE STOCK BOY AND BRENDA THE CHECKOUT GIRL

In a supermarket, Kurtis the stock boy, was busily working when a new voice came over the loud speaker asking for a carry out at register 4. Kurtis was almost finished, and wanted to get some fresh air, and decided to answer the call. As he approached the check-out stand a distant smile caught his eye, the new check-out girl was beautiful. She was an older woman (maybe 26, and he was only 22) and he fell in love. Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the punch clock to find out her name. She came into the break room, smiled softly at him, took her card and punched out, then left. He looked at her card, BRENDA. He walked out only to see her start walking up the road.

Next day, he waited outside as she left the supermarket, and offered her a ride home. He looked harmless enough, and she accepted. When he dropped her off, he asked if maybe he could see her again,outside of work. She simply said it wasn't possible. He pressed and she explained she had two children and she couldn't afford a baby-sitter, so he offered to pay for the baby-sitter. Reluctantly she accepted his offer for a date for the following Saturday. That Saturday night he arrived at her door only to have her tell him that she was unable to go with him. The baby-sitter had called and canceled. To which Kurtis simply said, "Well, let's take the kids with us." She tried to explain that taking the children was not an option, but again not taking no for an answer, he pressed. Finally Brenda, brought him inside to meet her children. She had an older daughter who was just as cute as a bug, Kurtis thought, then Brenda brought out her son, in a wheelchair. He was born a paraplegic with Down Syndrome.

Kurtis asked Brenda, "I still don't understand why the kids can't come with us?"
Brenda was amazed. Most men would run away from a woman with two kids,
especially if one had disabilities - just like her first husband, the father of her
children, had done. Kurtis was not ordinary - - - he had a different mindset. That evening Kurtis and Brenda loaded up the kids, went to dinner and the movies. When her son needed anything Kurtis would take care of him. When he needed to use the restroom, he picked him up out of his wheelchair, took him and brought him back. The kids loved Kurtis. At the end of the evening, Brenda knew this was the man she was going to marry and spend the rest of her life with.

A year later, they were married and Kurtis adopted both of her children. Since
then they have added two more kids. So what happened to Kurtis the stock boy
and Brenda the check-out girl? Well, Mr. & Mrs. Kurt Warner now live in Arizona,
where he is currently employed as the quarterback of the National Football League
Arizona Cardinals and has his Cardinals in the hunt for a possible appearance in
the Super Bowl. Is this a surprise ending or could you have guessed that he was
not an ordinary person. It should be noted that he also quarterbacked the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI. He has also been the NFL's Most Valuable Player twice and the Super Bowl's Most Valuable Player.
What are you doing Superbowl Sunday???

...Hope you have fun watching the game...



Until Later

???What Gender is Your Brain???

My Brain is 80% Female, 20% Male

I was at Sweet Shelia's Blog today and she posted about this fun test to take...

I couldn't resist so off I ran to take it and these were my results....



Your brain leans female
You think with your heart, not your head
Sweet and considerate, you are a giver
But you're tough enough not to let anyone take advantage of you!






MY LIVING WILL


Last night my brother and I were sitting in the den and I said to him,
'I never want to live in a vegetative state,
dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to keepme alive.
That would be no quality of life at all, If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'
So he got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine. He's such a bastard.


Hope you got a little chuckle out of this...

Until Later

♥♥♥Birthday Bonanza♥♥♥

The Party is over.... It has been an exciting week for me turning 60 and all.... I swear I think am still 25.... and I pretty much try to act that way too... LOL LOL

I think it has almost finally coming to an end... My Birthday turned out to be a week of celebrating.... Mr Adventure surprised me with a small little red camera to carry around and take pictures for my blog. My everyday camera is so big and heavy to use that I have been looking for something I could carry in my purse so it is always with me... Guess you could say I am really getting hooked on bloggin now if my main concern is always taking pictures. But wait that wasn't all... He got me the most beautiful jewelry that I had been eyeing for a while... Isn't it just fabulous....

Now Friday night my daughter Denise had a dinner for me with just the family (which is very small). Of course it was minus my daughter Jennifer & her family in Arkansas... With work and school they just couldn't be here...

We had delicious food that my daughter, Denise & my sister in law, Kathy made... An Italian feast with Ziti, Rolled Stuffed Eggplant (stuffed with ricotta, mozzarella & parmesan cheese) and Lasagna.... A nice toss salad with peperoni, Italian Garlic bread and a Chocolate Raspberry Birthday Cake. YUMMO!!!

The evening was filled with cooking, eating, a few cocktails (of course) and family fun... What great closure to my week. I want to share just a few pictures of the evening. Of course with the kids it was pretty loud too but I wouldn't trade that for anything... They are all so adorable...

Here are a few other cute little gifts
Here is my lovin honey Ralph... Is he getting ready to spank me???

Look how big my darling little grandsons are. Wyatt just behaving while Dominick is looking for something to get into... LOL LOL And here is my brother Uncle Kenny playing tug a hair with Dominick... Dominick thought it was so much fun pulling his handlebar mustache....

Look at how tall they are getting... They grow so fast

Well here is the end of it all...

Until Later
