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

Family weekend in Texas

This past weekend we took a trip to Texas to see my cousin Adam and his fiancé, Lindsay, tie the knot. The drive down was really rainy so we pulled over to eat and sit in the car until it cleared up….so what better entertainment to pass the time than some race-car driving and a dance party in the club!

We drove down and stayed a night with my grandparents on Lake Athens then spent the morning visiting with them and Grandma Marilyn and Austin loved getting all the love from his great-grandparents. It was too rainy and cold to walk down to the dock but we are eagerly planning Austin's birthday party on the lake the weekend of the 4th of July!

Then it was onto the Austin area for the rainy wedding weekend. Dispite the dreadful weather, the events were beautiful and so sweet. They love the movie UP so there were a lot of UP themes throughout the rehearsal and reception. It was really cute! We made some really great memories with the entire family and we toted “Flat Cory” everywhere we went. So although Cory wasn’t there in person, we had “Flat Cory” at every event and then thanks to Sykpe we all got to visit with Cory quite often throughout the weekend. Technology is the most amazing thing, we were chatting with him and seeing what he was seeing all while gathered around the dinner table and he is a world away. He is doing well but I know he is counting down the days to come home!

The Happy Couple, Adam and Lindsay Dubberly!
