The Separate Post

You may remember a few days ago when we had that amazing dinner with David and his family in Atlanta. I had shared that I had an incredible story of what happened to us right before that almost prevented us from going? Well, here it is, and you won't believe it! I still picture this in my mind as unbelievable!

We were early for our dinner meeting so we stopped at the Martin Luther King Jr. Site to pass some time. Since we had the dog with us we needed somewhere ok for him, and we had been here two years ago so I knew that it was free parking as well as outdoor spaces where we could walk. More pics from before. (Of course we LOVE MLK so that helped too!) :)

Was great to see it yet again even if we weren't going to be able to really look around inside at the exhibit. We were excited about seeing the footprints of famous African Americans. Braeden even remembered that he had stood for a picture on Sammy Davis Jr's and Olivia on Rosa Parks'.

They were amped up, but we each needed the restroom so we headed there first before finding those famous prints.

As Olivia and Braeden waited right outside the doors with Percy (our pup), I took Liam inside first. Hmmm... this is where things went wrong. So very, very wrong...

Because, I bet you had NO idea, just like I didn't that IF the conditions were JUST right...

IF you had a long fabric (awesome) wrist key fob with three keys attached...

And IF you had a shallow pocket and of course left your purse in the car for this quick stop...

And IF you were pulling up your pants JUST so while the toilet flushed...


You keys CAN fall out...

They CAN land RIGHT in the toilet...

And before you can blink your eye, they CAN be whisked away forever, never to be seen again...

Oh yes, they CAN...

Just sayin'....


All I have to say about THAT is THANK GOD, literally, because as I was packing for our trip, I somehow came upon my extra car key, and SOMEHOW decided to toss it into my purse. For what reason? I NEVER carry a spare?! Thank YOU GOD! So the very nice security man pried open my van door, and I was able to retrieve my one spare car key. WHEW! Who knew getting to dinner could be so much work!

(NO idea WHAT I would have had to do IF I hadn't had that extra key! Getting more made as I speak and placing them strategically in the car, purse, and house!) :)

Ha! What a serious series of peculiar events! Glad you followed the Spirit’s leading on packing the extra key.

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
