I'm Back

I am back in blogland. I have been missing in action for a couple of days. Hubby and I went to a workshop/seminar to help us reach the goals in our lives. It was by invitation and an awesome seminar. It was being recorded for an audio of the book that Kevin Sparks wrote. He is the man that ran the seminar, he and his beautiful wife Kristan. It was 9 to 5 on Friday and Saturday. I was filled with so much valuable information that I was mentally tired when I got home but excited to put all I learned into action. Now I know that some people are not ready for this kind of thing but check out the web site Getting Rich God's Way .
Coco held down the fort for us both days. Thank you Coco for all your help.
Today is the Sabbith and I am looking forward to church and being filled with the spirit. After this weekend my life will never be the same it will be way better each day.
As you can see I have decided to give a try to using advertising on my blog. So check them out when they are up and running. Thank you!!
Coco sent me this story and I thought it was cute! Have a great Sunday! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Giving Up Chocolate

"I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.

I took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, 'If I give you this money, will you buy chocolate with it instead of dinner?'

'No, I had to stop eating chocolate years ago', the homeless woman told me.

'Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?' I asked.

'No, I don't waste time shopping,' the homeless woman said. 'I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.'

'Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?' I asked

'Are you NUTS!' replied the homeless woman. I haven't had my hair done in 20 years'

Well, I said, 'I'm not going to give you the money. Instead I'm going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.'

The homeless woman was shocked. 'Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty and I probably smell pretty disgusting.'

I said, 'That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and chocolate."

Hey Bobbi Jo~
That ditty was too funny! Some days I am afraid I am already too much like the homeless gal. I could never give up chocolate though!!
