Maleah ate, Tammy passed away, Dad mowed

3BT for 7/23/07

1. Maleah ate carrots! :) First attempt...not so good. Second attempt...not too bad. Third attempt...pretty good! She's getting so big (I know I always say that). She's also sitting up unsupported for longer periods of time.

2. Tammy Faye Messner (Baker) passed away. That's not a "beautiful thing", but her life was. Forgetting all of the scandal that surrounded her - first husband's affair, second husband going to jail for bankruptcy fraud - she was a pretty great woman. She helped build a Christian empire that to this day has never been duplicated. The Christian theme park was fun (we got to watch a live taping of PTL), their message was true, and her heart was sincere. Sure, she may have worn more make-up in a day than most women do in a week; however, she also showed more love than most Christians do in a lifetime. Don't focus on the bad about Tammy Faye and remember the good...because there was a lot of good in her life.

3. The look and smell of a fresh cut lawn. Dad cut our lawn yesterday and it looks great. He got stung by a bee again, but he found their hideout and "mowed" them down.

  1. Carrots are MESSY! Boy it was awesome to see her eating them yesterday...making minimal amounts of "ew, nasty" faces. :) She's totally awesome!
