Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

It is getting to be the holiday season as I am sure you have noticed. Holiday decorations on the street lights, Christmas music playing in the grocery store, and a festive colored email from loved ones letting you know what is on their wish-list this year! (hint, hint..Mom, Dad, Z...might wanna check your email!) Well this year as we start making wish lists I have the most incredible gift to add to your list. There is a very special cause that could use your help. The Wee Dream fundraising golf tournament was put together by some wonderful people to raise money for the Lupher families. Both Witt Lupher and cousin Elle Lupher have become pretty accustomed to hospitals, doctors, and a lot of attention not only from medical staff but also from adoring friends and family. Lisha, Lee, and Baby Elle Lupher are our best friends and little Elle has undergone a long stay in the hospital followed by a major heart procedure and is doing awesome. She is one active 7 month old and Lisha said she is such a joyful baby! Rolling around, talking, smiling, and laughing all the time....much like her beautiful parents. The golf tournament is just over a week away and we are trying hard to reach the $30,000 goal! This would help both Lupher families so much. Read more about the golf tournament! Donations can be made and if you are in the Houston area stop by the Longwood Golf Club in Cypress, TX on November 16 for an awesome evening of food, music, and an awesome auction! (including a Shannon Jex piece of art!)

So this year, let's all think of others that need our help and make Elle's first Christmas unforgettable!
