A Girl Can Change Her Mind ...can't she?



I'm your typical female.... I change my mind.

I try not to do it too much with my man, for I know this can cause a great deal of frustration...but when it comes to my own decisions for me...like feathering...I can get something and have it moved 3 or 4 times before it finds its final resting place...I mean in the period of a week.

So all that said...."confessed!"...Remember this?



It got swallowed in that dark panelling in the family room. (which is why I photographed it in the kitchen for a post.)

I found a cute wrought iron basket at GW for .99 this past week. I thought it would look nice by the back door with....yep...those flowers, and so the flowers moved.
I changed my mind...again.



But I think they will stay in this basket. Whether they stay by the back door...well...I confess...that's a question that will remain unanswered!
A girl can change her mind, can't she??? :-)



Thank you all for praying for our military...for my Marine!!! Yesterday, a warrior in Justin's battalion was killed. Roadside bomb. This wounds me to the core...
This is a harsh ride through this time of my life...
Thank you for remembering them, for what they do, for what they experience, for what they see, for what they have to cope with...and still keep going...
This Marine mama thanks you for bringing them before the Lord and asking for them to have strength, and to be shielded ....Please lift up the family of a fallen Marine.
Hugs to all of you...

You move the flowers wherever you wish and as many times as you need to until you are happy with them:)

Oh Julie, it was HIS platoon... I misunderstood your email! I am praying constantly for these Marines! They are all in my heart! I pray for their safety and they stay mentally strong! Love you my friend!

If only you knew, my dear friend, how many times I've been concerned that this would happen so soon after Justin's arrival. I pray for God to put His shield of protection around him every day...some days many times a day, Julie. My heart aches for this other Marine's family.

May the Lord bless you with a restful night's sleep tonight...and may He protect Justin through the night.

OH your flowers are beautiful & go ahead and put them whereever you want!!! Move them any place you desire ~ change your mind as often as you like, why because you can ;) !!! I do it toooo way toooo much according to MR. P ~ OH WELL!

I am so sorry to hear about that Marine, we too lost a young man who lives just a street over from us. He was killed by a roadside bomb also. Today he came home and the streets were lined with his friends, with strangers & Mr. P standing silently watching him go by and praying and crying and trying to imagine what would become of us if we lost our Marine....

Hugs to you sweet Julie, stay strong ~ we are all praying all of the time.....Blessings!

Oh I love the flowers where ever you put them! We are allowed to change our minds...especially when we are dealing with deployment!

I am so sorry to hear about a Marine being killed!! It has become such a part of my week to hear of at least one of our 1/6 to get killed!! I hate it so bad and continually keep them in my prayers!! It gets close to home when its some of our guys in a unit...I know exactly how you feel!!

Hugs and Blessings from Georgia!!

Oh Julie! I am praying for The Fallen Soldier and His Family, for your Son and all his fellow Marines. Thanks for your kind words, for the time you took to write them.
And about the "changing mind" I am an expert, my Family always complains when I rearrange the furniture because when they get up at night they can't find their way, ;-), oh well, the price they have to pay to have a "creative mind" at home...
Blessings...

The flowers are beautiful and yes, you can change your mind often if you wish. ;)

I'll be praying for the family of the fallen Marine. I continue to pray for your Marine as well.

Semper Fi and God bless.

As a military wife, I want to let you know that your son is in my prayers -- continually until he comes home! Praying for his unit and their loss as well.

I found you through blog surfing and am now your newest follower!

Semper Fi and Ooh Rah!

yes, we need to remember to pray for these families. just because your family member dies in the line of duty doesn't take the horrible pain away.
