How Much Scannin' Can One Girl Do?

Now that I'm officially cross-eyed and my head feels like it's about to crack in half, I'm officially multi-tasked OUT! I have done nothing today but scan pictures (400+ to be exact). I still have about 100 left to do, in this batch. Thank goodness I'm not scanning every picture mom has ever taken, otherwise I may be 102 before I finished. When she gave me this batch yesterday she said "I'm not going to give you everything. Just the ones that I really want." Well, I know this - - - we're going to be scrapbooking for a very long time!! But, I love it! It's been fun to go through the pictures & reminisce about the days gone by. I'm surprised at how much I remember, since I have a hard time remembering what I did 2 days ago! HA!

Another busy week ahead. I don't think I have a night this week that something isn't going on. But, I can't complain. I like to stay busy! I'm really looking forward to this weekend. We're taking Bubby to "The Big Dig" on Saturday. Bubba & Shell are going, too. We are all very excited about it. We've been looking forward to it for a long time. The "grown children" are a little disappointed that they may not be able to ride on all the equipment, so we'll probably have a mess on our hands, but we'll see.

I'm so glad that the signs of Fall are upon us. This weekend was gorgeous. And, the weather was just PERFECT. This is my very favorite time of year and I'm so looking forward to spending a lot of time outdoors with Bubby this season. We've got a lot planned already!

Right now, I'm just sitting here watching the David Phelps' "Legacy of Love" dvd, which is AWESOME, if you've never heard/watched it. The whole thing is great, but one of the best songs, in my opinion, is "Legacy of Love." Here are the lyrics:

He was the kind of man that good men talk about
The way he showed his faith was how he lived it out.
His hands were rough and calloused and his shoes were old and torn
And the lines that framed his smile were lines so well and deep and worn.
So what will be remembered of what he left behind?
What will stand the test of time?

Chorus

How to love your neighbor and how to love your wife
Wrap your arms around your children and pray with them each night.
Thank God for all the good things 'cause the good things are enough
The ties that bind and leave behind a legacy of love.
He worked a second job to make the ends all meet
But somehow managed to always be there for me.
Showed me how to listen and how to stand for what is right
And taught me all the things that really matter in this life.

Chorus

As I look into the eyes of my daughters and my sons
I hope I’ve stood for something that they’ll want to carry on
‘Cause life is far too short not to finally realize
That its long enough to make a difference in someone’s life.

Chorus

So I’m gonna love my neighbor and I’m gonna love my wife
Wrap my arms around my children and pray with them each night.
Thank God for all the good things cause the good things are enough
The ties that bind and leave behind a legacy of love.

I just love this song. It says so much!!! I hope that this is the kind of legacy that I will leave behind. I know it's the legacy that my precious daddy & grandmother left behind.

Well, I'm off to bed. I hope that everyone has a wonderful week! Until next time . . .

I love this song! My husband is a singer, and David Phelps is one of his "heroes." We saw him in concert last year, and he did a great show. I haven't seen the video of this song - I'll look for it.
