A Very Special Mother

I'm fifty years old
Many good years have passed me by
I still smile
When I look into your eyes

The stresses of life
Often turn our days into night
Those are the moments
I'm glad to have you by my side

I've been touched by loneliness
A time or two
Sadness and pain where here
Before the day I met you

You were the rock
When I nearly died
I still remember every moment
You were there when I cried

You have not always said
What you mean or feel,
But I know
Every bit of your love is real

You are my friend
You are my wife
The mother of my children
That important part of my life

I honor You today
As a woman, as my lover
I honor you today
As a very Special mother

I received this product free, in exchange for an honest review. My wife has a really hard time taking vitamins. I told her that I got her another free vitamin, but she didn't show any interest. She has a hard time swallowing the pills. I told her it is like a hand cream and the vitamin soaks into her skin. She tried this like it were a hand cream. She noticed the smell was minimal and it was easy to use. She also appreciated that the product softens her skin. Now my wife can take vitamins without having to try to swallow pills. Great product.

A Trip Through The Woods And A Fight With The Deer Flies

Doug and I decided to take a six mile hike through the woods. About a mile into the hike, the deer flies acted like I was a rotten piece of meat and they were hungry for me. Over the next five miles, hundreds of these flies dive bombed me, trying to get a taste of my flesh. I never thought my flesh actually tasted this delicious. I killed fourteen of these beasts and they managed to take a chunk out of me two times.

The deer flies made me pick up the pace through the woods. I was walking so fast, that I heard animals take off all around me. All I really saw was a baby snake, a huge slug, a large owl that I startled (likely out of his sleep) and a good size black racer who slithered into the woods in front of me. When I reached the end of my walk, I was thankful. The deer flies decided they liked the woods and did not follow me to the car.

As I waited for Doug, I talked to forest ranger who pulled up. He asked me about the animals I saw on my hike and was especially interested in hearing about the big owl. He agreed it was unusual to see one in the middle of the day. He told me the deer flies would only be active for another two to three weeks. He said he had to deal with them dive bombing him many times and understood my hate.

Finally, Doug made it out of the woods. I was starting to wonder if the deer flies were too much for him, but he came out in one piece. I was disappointed that he only managed to kill one lonely deer fly. I am saddened that my friend was out maneuvered by a clan of buzzing deer flies.

Plumb Exhale Review



About PLUMB:
Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, better-known by her stage name Plumb, is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and author. Plumb has sold more than 500,000 albums and over two million singles worldwide, co-penned songs for numerous other artists, including Michelle Branch, Mandisa, Mandy Moore, Jaci Velasquez, and Natalie Grant, and had music placed in many films and television shows.Originally signed as a Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) recording artist in 1997, Plumb is now known as well as or better in alternative rock, electronic dance music, and for the use of her music in film and television than she is in the CCM market.

About the album:
EXHALE, the seventh studio album from acclaimed multi-genre singer, songwriter and author PLUMB, expresses a new focus and vision. After the runaway success of NEED YOU NOW (the album, title track and book), which coincided with her own moving story of brokenness and ultimately healing, Exhale brims with worshipful songs of gratitude and hope.

The defining concept of EXHALE was born from a sermon at Plumb’s home church, wherein her pastor Pete Wilson expressed the notion that the Church doesn’t exist for itself. Rather, believers come to church to breathe in grace and truth, be changed, and then go out and “exhale” that hope into their surrounding community.

“That idea of exhaling hope hit me right away and I couldn’t get to the Notes section on my phone fast enough. I started writing the chorus of Exhale right then and there,” explains Plumb. “I have been made new by the ultimate hope, and I want to share and exhale that hope in every way I can.” 

I had the chance to check out the Plumb CD Exhale for free, the review is my own. I must first say that Plumb's music is not my type of music to listen to. I'm into harder music, always have been. I do like that Plumb relates to God in every one of her songs. Her singing (although soft for me) is actually great Christian music. Her words and the meanings are perfect for Christian's the world around. It was interesting for me to listen to a CD that was far away from what I'm used to. This music is better suited for people like my wife that enjoy music that is on the lighter side.

Bluegreen Resorts Review Number Two

Bluegreen Resorts wants you to call up and confirm your reservations. This is odd because you call them up to make reservations and then you have to confirm them. I did learn something they didn't tell me when they sold me their four nights in a hotel on the beach. You have to pay thirteen percent that they wait until the third time they talk to you to reveal. I expected some interesting things, here's why they want you to confirm.
They want to know is both spouses are 25 years old
They want to know if both of you have ID's and credit cards for identification
They want to know (for the third time) if both of you make over 40 grand as a couple
They tell you where to meet to get your hotel reservations and the time
They tell you if you are late for their sales pitch, that you have to reschedule and have to pay them some money.
They showed me that they are like all the other companies that are trying to sell you a timeshare.

The only thing that I don't like so far is not being told about the 13 percent in taxes I have to pay for the hotel.

I have Marriott Rewards and I do not pay tax
I have a Holiday in CC and I do not have to pay tax

I did have to pay $11.20 in taxes for a free flight I got with miles to Arizona, but this is the first time I am paying taxes for a hotel room that is supposed to be free.
