"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Mood Ring on the Farm~Bliss!!!!!!

After a flight delay(by three days), flight change, and another delay 9 hours...I have wonderful news. I never share any news about my son that is in the army until it is old news, because with the military things change without notice. Anyhow a flight that should have arrived at noon made it to El Paso at 9:35 pm last night and check out the passenger we picked up! Yes we were all tired but how exciting to have First home for the holidays!

First with Fourth-Second and Third both had to work yesterday evening.


Now to the mood ring excitement!!
My oldest received orders for Fort Bliss and this arrival is well~



his arrival to his new duty station in Texas. And thanks to maps of the world dot com, you can see where he was and now where he will be stationed! Yes the smile will not leave my face! El Paso is right down the road from the farm(in western speak) and I am thrilled to be so close to all the kids once again!

Back to regular posting perhaps later today!
