Superbowl 2014


Sunday, February 2, 2014 is a pretty special day.  In case you didn’t realize it, the SUPER BOWL is this Sunday! I’m excited for a couple of reasons. First, I am a football fan and I like both teams. Second, there is a young man playing for Seattle from right here in little ole Jasper, TX!! So, we are really cheering for him!!

This young man, #79 for the Seattle Seahawks – Joseph “Red” Bryant, is a special young man to lots of people in this area. He is the exception to the typical athlete who lets his success go to his head. Not Red. He is humble, respectful, down to earth, and just someone that it is so easy to like. He is a super friendly man, and I think most of his hometown is very proud of him.

My daughter went to school with Red, and my oldest son played high school football with him! He is super talented and willing to share his knowledge with others.

With a hometown boy playing in the super bowl, you would think his hometown would be celebrating, hosting parties, and honoring this young man and his success. But, for some reason, there is nothing other than a small story on our local radio station about him. That is really sad! I mean, this young man, as well as the rest of his team, have accomplished quite a feat by making it to the super bowl!! I just think that his hometown should recognize this, and they are not!!

If I could, I would host a huge party to celebrate. But I can’t. Instead, I will sit at home, with my husband and a bunch of snacks and a good steak, and celebrate Red’s accomplishment! He will probably never know how proud of him we are, but we will still celebrate.

The most important thing to know about me is that I love the Lord Jesus Christ. I am a Christian first and foremost. Everything else is just icing on the cake! If you don't know Jesus, please ask. I'll be happy to introduce you!! I am wife to Gerald x 30+ years, mother of 4, grandmother of 8. I have many hobbies and when I decide I want to 'try' something new, I always jump in with both feet!! I love to crochet, scrapbook, make cards, garden (especially flowers). I raise chickens. The hubs and I are parents to two weenie dogs, one lab, and one very moody siamese-ish cat. I also love to write, always have. I won an award for news writing in high school but did not pursue it, which I should have done! I have had a few articles published and there is no greater feeling than to know that some of your work has been read nationally! I am a Scentsy consultant!! I am pushing the wax and warmers, laundry items, and household cleaner on everyone I possibly can! Why? Because I LOVE these products!! They are so much safer than burning candles. The wax is not burned, it is warmed and remains at a cool enough temperature that you, or your child, your pet, etc., can put a finger or whatever into the melted wax and it does not burn. And the scents are to DIE FOR!! If you are interested in checking out my website, it's Let me know how I can help you! Well, that about sums it up so if you have any questions, please just ask! Doesn't mean I will answer them, but doesn't hurt to ask!!
