Ten Years

"Today would have been Mom's 60th Birthday. Ten years ago they had a big party for her @ work-black streamers & all. She was so surprised. Happy Birthday Mom! I know your watching over the grandkids. We talk about Grandma Lynn all the time. We love you!"

This is my facebook status right now. I both can and can't believe that it has been ten years since Mom's death. This week the death of Roger Kotter from the same thing that took Mom. Life seems shorter. I think about my own mortality. What have I given my kids to remember me by. Have I taught them enough? Do they know I love them. Does Tammy know how much I love her?

The only way to answer these daunting questions is to act. To do something. Play a game. Read a a book. Read a story. Spend the time. Together.

Election... blah blah blah

It's 2012 and election new is starting to pick up even more. Today I read the following story:

Georgia Lawmaker 'Afraid' of Romney's Mormon Faith
01/04/2012 | 
Sigh. Here we go again. A Georgia state legislator says Mitt Romney's LDS faith makes him wary.

The Marietta Daily Journal spoke with a number of Georgia legislators about the 2012 field. Republican Representative Judy Manning went off about Mitt and Mormons in general.

“I think Mitt Romney is a nice man, but I’m afraid of his Mormon faith,” Manning said. “It’s better than a Muslim. Of course, every time you look at the TV these days you find an ad on there telling us how normal they are. So why do they have to put ads on the TV just to convince us that they’re normal if they are normal? … If the Mormon faith adhered to a past philosophy of pluralism, multi-wives, that doesn’t follow the Christian faith of one man and one woman, and that concerns me.” 

Romney is also a flip-flopper, Manning said. 

“When he was the governor of Massachusetts he performed 100 — and I’m not sure this number is right, but my mind says it’s about 180 gay marriages — and now, when he is running as president on the Republican ticket, he says that marriage is between a man and a woman,” Manning said.

Here is my response:

Representative Manning, 

I wanted to pass some information on so that you could educate yourself on The Mormon faith espoused by Governor Romney. The church is named: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You can find much information regarding this religion on  Please take time and learn a little more about this faith. Ignorance is cured by education.  You may also view online videos on the life of Jesus Christ from the Church here- 

I am trying to convert anyone just pass along information

Thanks for your time.
