Gotta tell ya...I have never been a James Bond fan until Daniel Craig took over the roll. I don't know...there is just something about him. Maybe it is the piercing blue eyes, like my husbands. Maybe it is the way he wears a suit...(my husband looks extremely nice when doing so, also...)

Under the stars
captivated by you
I hold you in my arms
this is my Dream come true
wonderful and beautiful
my precious child
It's been so long since my
heart has felt this light
I whisper the words
while We dance as one
wishing that I'd never have
to see the rising sun
Dancing for eternity
lost in our embrace
under the stars
Original poem by:Leno Pineiro
(I have taken the liberty by changing it for my needs)

I honestly can't remember the last time I was at a park...not a baseball park, but a park where children are playing...little kids are running around giggling and screaming. If I had to guess, and I will guess high...this has been the third time since Maddux died. Natalie and her friend Katie wanted to have a sleep over. I had to drop Chase off for a baseball game and suggested to Katie's mom, to lets meet at this park. I remember taking Natalie to this park when I was pregnant with Maddux. Katie has alittle brother named Kobe, who is three. Natalie has taken such a liking to this little boy...She absolutely LOVES him...as you can see by the pictures. She would have been such a good big sister...

Luis Jimenez, an award-winning artist, was commissioned to create a 32-foot horse sculpture, called Mustang, for display at Denver International Airport. The artist lost his life and the city's cost more than doubled on the road to the sculpture's installation.
1992: City of Denver commissions the sculpture for $300,000 with a 1996 delivery date.
2001: The city changed the planned location of Mustang to inside the terminal, from a site on Pena Boulevard.
2003: After several delays, the city sued Jimenez to get its $165,000 advance payment back. Jimenez, countersued because DIA wanted to place his sculpture inside.
2004: An agreement was reached calling for Jimenez to meet certain deadlines leading to installation of the piece and Mustang would be installed outside. Jimenez would receive the remaining $135,000 on his contract.
2005: Jimenez continued to miss deadlines.
2006: Jimenez was killed when part of the sculpture fell on him in his New Mexico studio.
2007: The city took possession of the sculpture in mid-October. The piece took a detour to California for repairs and safety upgrades. A budget of $350,000 was approved to rehab the sculpture, ship it, install it and dedicate it.
I wrote this as a “gift book”—not in the conventional sense, it’s not exactly a coffee table book. But it was my hope that those who who knew somebody who is suffering in isolation would buy the book for them and take it to them. This simple act can open the door of conversation. It is a really good way to say, “I’m here, I’ll talk whenever you’re ready. I’m not afraid of the subject.”— Jenny
