Sounds of Silence

Sometimes, when I get home from work, Especially lately, I come into the house...check on little Dog, and just sit on the couch listening to the...silence! No phones ringing, no TV blaring, no radio...just silence. I close my eyes and just...listen...Nothing. nice. BUT, that only last for a few minutes but at least it allows me enough time to get centered again and start planning supper. Asking Hubby, on the way out from work, what he'd like, he suggested I make potato soup...Yes! Sounded good, so I did! It hit the spot...If you want my recipe go HERE.Well, here's hoping you all are having a good Wednesday...Now I have to think of something Else for tonight's supper!LOL...never ending job!

"A Give-a-Way in Ben's Name"

Sally of Whispering Hope is having a give-a-way in honor of her Grandson, Ben who passed away last September of a motorcycle accident. Without furthur ado, I'll let Sally speak in her Own words...Bless you Sally Girl!

"In memory of my grandson, Ben, (the first anniversary of his passing is Weds 9/16/09) I'm offering $100.00 toward a skateboard." "Aside from Moto Cross, Ben loved skateboarding. If he wasn't on his dirt bike, he could be found on the skateboard. Every year, before Christmas, when I'd ask him what he'd like ~ he'd grin, and I'd know! I'd let him choose the board off the Internet, order it, and then on Christmas morning he'd act so excited and surprised.
If you know of a young person who would like a skateboard either for Christmas or just in general, please leave a comment. I'll leave this post up until Thursday, and the winner will be announced on Friday or Saturday. Perhaps, if there are no children in your life, you may know of one who would be happy to receive this gift.
If you win, you or your child can choose the board over the Internet, and I'll pay up to $100.00. I hope this will make someone happy just as it always did my grandson, and I know in my heart he would be smiling now....."
