My Dear Friends:
Well, here we go with a new look. My old web site has been around a long time, so my publicist, Angie Gore, along with her wonderful employees, felt we needed a new look that is easier to navigate and service. Please investigate all sections and let us know what you think. I know that you will all be honest with me, as you have over the years. Good friends are always honest with each other.
Spring has sprung and I have been working in the yard/garden daily from sun-up to sundown. My landscapers are just finishing up putting down new mulch, so the initial work is winding down. Thank Goodness! My cousin Iris and her husband Lanie are coming to visit this week. They are from Arkansas and we don’t get to see each other except every couple of years. I’m looking forward to the visit. All the kids are doing well and I know I could elaborate, but I want to get this new blog into the site so it can be launched immediately. I will send a newsier letter when things start to slow down, so take care and be safe.
I am so proud of my daughter-in-law Christy Sutherland! She stars in the new faith based film "Welcome To Inspiration" alongside Jason Crabb, Larry Gatlin, Jackie Stewart (Slingblade, A Time To Kill) and others. Christy did an incredible job in this film and I encourage you all to purchase it!! "Welcome To Inspiration" will be released nationwide to DVD January 20th exclusively at all Wal-Mart stores. The movie will air later on television and be available at all Christian retailers.
Angie Gore and others have been telling me I need to write another message for all of you to know what has been going on with me. Ken told me when the last one was written and I was dismayed to find out it had been so long. I’m sorry. A lot has been going on and hopefully I will be able to remember most of it.
Jax has been doing great and now weighs over 20 pounds and is quite active. A Birthday party for him was held at his other Grandparents home, Joe and Gail Gilbert, and he had a great time. I made him a chocolate cake just so he can dig into it with his hands. I think he enjoyed that. Jaime has enrolled him in a day care school and he goes everyday from about 8:30 to 3:00 and Jax is learning a lot.
My Mother had her usual Halloween party at her house, and most of the family and friends came. Ken and I didn’t dress up in any costumes this year, but just enjoyed seeing those who did.
This is a picture of a child that we sponsor from FEED THE CHILDREN. We get letters and pictures she has drawn, from time to time, and can see that she is doing great. There is a video message that our daughter-in-law, Christy has put together to show her friends about the program, and her involvement. I really want you to see it. She and our son, Matthew sponsor a child also. Please go to http://youtu.be/XY11zRt5E94 to watch. We are all so fortunate and if you have the opportunity to help a child through this organization, I know you will be blessed. May God bless you and we wish you a Merry Christmas.
