    Hundreds of hurting people visit here every day, most of whom are searching for comfort after loss. Please reach out for emotional support as you begin the healing process. Be patient with yourself. Allow yourself to grieve. Let it out. May God be with you.

  • Michael Jackson’s Family on Oprah

    | November 8, 2010

    I watched Oprah’s interview with Michael’s parents, Katherine and Joe Jackson. After years of denying it, and when his wife said he might as well admit it, Joe finally confessed to beating using a strap to punish his children. I found it very sad that he was so proud that out of nine children, none of them ever went to jail. Wow. That is the standard? Raising a child that doesn’t end up in jail? He credits it to strapping them, and he has no regrets. Imagine having the parenting goal of keeping your children out of jail! I suspect it is more common than I can imagine.

    I was disappointed that the grandparents sent Prince and Paris to school, but fortunately, Blanket is still being homeschooled. He is going into grade four.

    I also felt disappointed that Oprah chose to interview the Jackson children and expose them to the world.

    Andy Taylor Practicing Grace-filled Parenting with his Son Opie

    I was so pleased when ThatMom posted these videos. The father/son relationship is so loving and respectful. I suspect most American homes of that time were not so forgiving.

    Babies Should Not Sleep Alone

    Cosleeping and Biological Imperatives: Why Human Babies Do Not and Should Not Sleep Alone
    http://neuroanthropology.net/2008/12/21/cosleeping-and-biological-imperatives-why-human-babies-do-not-and-should-not-sleep-alone/

    Personally, I can’t understand how cribs ever “caught on”. It is unthinkable for me to put my baby anywhere else at night. Every night, she sleeps next to me, or cradled in my arms, or on my chest.

    “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues”

    | November 8, 2010

    Elton John – I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues

    Don’t wish it away
    Don’t look at it like it’s forever
    Between you and me
    I could honestly say
    That things can only get better

    And while I’m away
    Dust out the demons inside
    And it won’t be long
    Before you and me run
    To the place in our hearts
    Where we hide

    And I guess that’s why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that’s why
    They call it the blues

    Just stare into space
    Picture my face in your hands
    Live for each second
    Without hesitation
    And never forget I’m your man

    Without me girl
    Cry in the night if it helps
    But more than ever I simply love you
    More than I love life itself

    And I guess that’s why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that’s why
    They call it the blues

    Wait on me girl
    Cry in the night if it helps
    But more than ever I simply love you
    More than I love life itself

    And I guess that’s why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that’s why
    They call it the blues

    How George W. Bush Became Pro-Life

    ‘Here’s the foetus’: George Bush reveals moment his mother shared her miscarriage agony
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1327757/George-Bush-interview-Ex-President-reveals-moment-mother-shared-miscarriage-agony.html?ITO=1490#ixzz14kYaUDmp

    “George W Bush today reveals that his mother had a miscarriage when he was a teenager and showed him the foetus in a jar.”

    “In a remarkably candid interview to be broadcast tonight, the former President said Barbara Bush asked doctors to save the dead baby so she could show it to her son.”

    “On a subsequent hospital visit she calmly motioned to the jar and told
    him: ‘Here’s the foetus’.”

    “The astonishing episode left a huge impact on the young Mr Bush and hardened his pro-life stance, causing him to lean further to the right on issue of abortion and stem cell therapy.”

    “‘There’s no question that affected me, a philosophy that we should
    respect life,’ he said.”

    “‘There was a human life, a little brother or sister’.”

    “He had driven his mother to hospital for an appointment following the miscarriage when she showed him the jar containing the child.”

    He will likely be asked about this during interviews all week. I will add to this post if necessary.

    We enjoyed the American election thoroughly

    | November 8, 2010

    Nov. 2: Rock on Tea Party! Let Freedom Ring!! ……. Americans need a voting system like ours – no chads or dimples or voter fraud…

    Nov. 2: Channel 507 on Bell ExpressVu ** FOX NEWS ROCKS!! ** Glenn Beck’s Insider Extreme is great, too. ** Tea partying tonight! ** Been hoping for the tide to turn for the past 25 years. ** See ya later Reid and Pelosi. ** My goal is personhood for the unborn.

    Nov. 3: Boys stayed up until 1AM and 2AM. B12 made a chart with red and blue markers. They enjoyed the evening immensely. What makes US politics more fun is that unlike Canada, all the parties aren’t the same. Here, we have socialist, more socialist, and most socialist. We don’t have true conservatives nor libertarians.

    BEAUTIFUL:
