My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

"Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Congratulations to last week's winners.

Now let's see about this week's words:

adjure:I'm with Diane on this plead or beg.

ablaut: A piece of absorbant paper, such as a blotter.

Does Dianne ever NOT win the Smarty Pants award? That woman is like a walking Thesaurus!

I'll have to think about this week's words and get back at you as my Thinking Cap is failing to work today!
