the moon walker is gone

i am very sadden over michael jackson. his music brings such fond memories for me. i found these lyrics of one of his songs which i found so telling.
he will be truly missed.

Hold Me
Like The River Jordan
And I Will Then Say To Thee
You Are My Friend
Carry Me
Like You Are My Brother
Love Me Like A Mother
Would You Be There?
Tell Me Will You Hold Me
When Wrong,
Will You Skold Me
When Lost
Will You Find Me?
But They Told Me
A Man Should Be Faithful
And Walk When Not Able
And Fight Till The End
But I'm Only Human
Everyone's Taking Control Of Me
Seems That The World's
Got A Role For Me
I'm So Confused
Will You Show To Me
You'll Be There For Me
And Care Enough To Bear Me
In Our Darkest Hour
In My Deepest Despair
Will You Still Care?
Will You Be There?
In My Trials
And My Tripulations
Through Our Doubts
And Frustrations
In My Violence
In My Turbulence
Through My Fear
And My Confessions
In My Anguish And My Pain
Through My Joy And My Sorrow
In The Promise Of Another Tomorrow
I'll Never Let You Part
For You're Always In My Heart.
Will You Be There - Michael Jackson

from my eight year old son.

lilly and her flea bath

lilly had her cousin pebbles over to play a few days ago. unfortunately, pebbles left some friends behind. i had to take my lilly belle a flea bath today....a most perfect day for a bath. i am suppose to let the flea shampoo penetrate her fur for about 5 minutes. after her 15 minute nap, she let me rinse her off.

plate it up!

i have an eight year old boy who loves to plate food. he is so meticulous about arranging his food on his plate when he begins to eat and will jump at the chance to help me cook and serve dinner. could he be the next Jacques Pepin? a mother can only dream.... above are some of his creations.
