"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Most of us know the Preamble. You know, the one we learned to sing from "
School House Rock"
Hey, do you know about the U.S.A.?Do you know about the government?Can you tell me about the Constitution?Hey, learn about the U.S.A.
In 1787 I'm told Our founding fathers did agree To write a list of principles For keepin' people free.
The U.S.A. was just startin' out.A whole brand-new country.And so our people spelled it out The things that we should be.
And they put those principles down on paper and called it the Constitution, and it's been helping us run our country ever since then. The first part of the Constitution is called the preamble and tells what those founding fathers set out to do.
We the people,In order to form a more perfect union,Establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,Provide for the common defense,Promote the general welfare and Secure the blessings of liberty To ourselves and our posterity To ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
In 1787 I'm told our founding fathers all sat down and wrote a list of principles That's known the world around.
The U.S.A. was just starting out A whole brand-new country.And so our people spelled it out They wanted a land of liberty.
And the Preamble goes like this:
We the people,In order to form a more perfect union,Establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,Provide for the common defense,Promote the general welfare and Secure the blessings of liberty To ourselves and our posterity Do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
For the United States of America...
Note:The lyrics here have a slightly abridged wording of the Preamble to the United States Constitution. The actual document starts, "We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union..."

I can not tell you how much I love and appreciate him. Kira and Derek would have never survived high school with out his constant encouragement."We got the call this morning. It is cancer. The tumor is
12 inches long, 6 inches wide, and 6 inches thick. Remember the ER doc said it
was a pulled muscle? Well... it wasn't! There really is something growing, very
rapidly, in his thigh. We will go to SLC tomorrow to see the radiology

"i resolve to take more self-portraits with people i love"
As you can see, this picture is missing me...mostly because it is on top of a cold ski mountain, two things I do not do...skiing or cold! But, I loved that two of the people I love so much took it of themselves!

This past week has been a real eye opener.
It has given me the opportunity to wonder what constitutes a tough day?
Sickness, Depression, Unknown Illnesses, Flooded Home, Loss of an Important Item...
I have had family or friends have one of these things effect them just this week.
But, I have learned something from each of them...
How DO you handle the challenge?
Do you look it straight in the eye?
Hide in your bed?
Hope someone else will take care of it?
Grab a mop?
Find an importaint lesson?
Realize your family and friends care?
no these are not coolers...look a little closer
I am glad that this week...I was able to really learn and apply a good lesson.................. somewhere, someone has it a lot worse than I do.

Now this does come after much, much deliberation.
At first I thought my word would be MIRACLE because I want to look and find a miracle in everyday. Or it could be ANGEL, who has been an angel in my day...
yes, those are both very good and deserving words for the 2009 year.
But, I am afraid that they come tied for runner-up to
are you ready
My word of the year is....

She will be celebrating one year of blogging! So, wouldn't it be great if all of my blogging friends stopped by her blog and said HI and Happy BLOGOVERY!
She would just think we were all the coolest bloggers in the world.
She has 5 adorable children along with her husband and Harley (her dog) that she blogs about...plus anything else that comes to her mind.
She shares GREAT recipes and craft ideas.
Oh yea...and she is having a give-a-way to celebrate. I guess it is her party, odd that she is sending out the gifts!
But, then she has never been the normal of the two sisters, just the most BEAUTIFUL!
Happy Blogoversary Lene I love you!
