The 2008 Olympics !!

I am so NOT into sports. No football , no baseball, no basketball (gasp). BUT give me the Olympics !!! I have loved watching them. Notice I am up at 12:45 am blogging LOL! I HAD to watch the Women's Gymnastics. I was SOOO happy to seeShawn Johnson win a GOLD :) That is one strong little girl! And Natsia? Amazing dedication.. Michael Phelps? Have you ever seen anyone like him ? Amazing. I respect their dedication and level of physical fitness. Makes me what to get up early before the kids and go for a nice long run.

Not~ Scared myself for a second there :)

PLEASE continue to pray for little ABBY. She is so sick right now. Her little body is reacting to the antibiotics and she is very uncomfortable. Please pray they can find the answers needed for her. Pray for her parents who are going thru so much right now.
