Last week at work I had to pick up a group of customers from the airport in Warroad. The customers were from the East Coast mainly and a couple of them had not visited Warroad previously. As we drove toward town I was showing them the various Marvin buildings including the training center where they would spend the majority of their stay. As I approached the motel to drop them off the big red Coca Cola truck was parked in the lot. I said with my Vanna White wave, “And this is Tim, the Coke man.” Someone laughed and said, “You are on a first name basis with the Coke man?” I replied with a smile, “I graduated with his sister.”

Many guests that travel to Warroad for training at our facility are from very large cities. They can’t fathom the fact that we live in the sticks. They think we are all related and we certainly know everyone! So this was a little fun humor I could have with the East Coast guys.


I love living in the toolies!  I can grab my crystal coffee mug and head out to the deck to enjoy the peace and quiet that mother nature brings in early spring.  The frogs, the birds and now my cranes are here too!  What an awesome gift today is.  I hope that eveyone is touched by something fantastic and out of this world today.  Have a great Wednesday!

It’s cold this morning.

It’s 554am and I better get my tushi in gear.  I am reading a Joyce Meyer book my mom gave me for Christmas.  I love Joyce Meyer and all her wisdom and all her lessons learned through struggle and patience and love for Christ.  BUT…my flesh is fighting me on finishing this book.  I am thinking something good is coming!!!  Stay tuned for the results:)

Humble and peaceful servant

Loving and submissive wife

Caring and doting mother

It seems as though I waited forever for all of these to come into my life and now I can’t seem to keep it on track.  Everyday I am falling short in one area or another.  Some days I fall short of all of them.  I pray for love and peace and I get hit with the devil stealing them.  As I have mentioned in previous posts patience is not a strong trait in my genetic make-up.  I pray that the lord will grant me paitence first and foremost.  Thank you Jesus!

Moving up!

I am going to be shaking things up a bit.  I am working on a new blog and I will be taking my recipe section over to that blog.  I will be starting a prayer corner on my toolies blog.  I will have my own prayer list if you will be so loving as to pray for me and I welcome prayer requests as well.  I will certainly pray for you!  We are all prayer warriors in this life.  Band together as brothers and sisters were meant to do.  Come pray with me!
