What Does the Yellow Light Mean?

SLOW DOWN! I used to LOVE the show, Taxi. Jim Ignatowsky was my favorite. I remember one episode where Jim and Bobby were trying to take a written driver test. Jim kept trying to get Bobby to help him with one question.

Jim: Pssssttt... What does the yellow light mean? Bobby: Slow down. Jim: What... does... the... yellow... light... mean? Bobby: "Slow down"! Jim: Whaaaat... dooooeeees... theeeee... yeeeel-looowwww... liiiiight... meeeeaaan?

GUESS YOU HAD TO BE THERE! I still crack up thinking about it. Do you remember the show? I also loved Simka and Latka. How in the world did they talk like that?

But, slow down is my thought today. It has been a very busy few weeks culminating in today's birthday of our country. I hear fireworks out my window as I type this. It makes me so grateful to be here and not somewhere hearing the bombs like are being heard in Iraq and around the war torn countries involved in this war. GOD BLESS AMERICA. Bless the beasts and the children. For in this world they have no voice or choice. Pray tonight that God will heal our nation and pray for the leaders that are making the decisions, right or wrong.

On another note our air conditioning unit decided today on this holiday, to stop working. I have a new appreciation for the fan. I remember when it was all we had. It was good enough then but we are spoiled to the quietness and efficiency of our central unit. Today being a holiday was NOT a good idea to call the repair man because it is going to be $$$$ enough to have it "looked" at and diagnosed. Today would have been tripled, I suspect. So, patiently for now I sit. in. front. of.
The best and most exciting news of all is that tomorrow we are going to A town to be present for the birth of Jaxon Blair. To say we are excited is an understatement. The kids called the other night to say they were bored and I told them to enjoy these last few nights as a couple because words can NOT even begin to explain that their lives will never be the same. From here on out, their lives will be consumed with another human being that they will love enough to give their life for. They will no longer be a couple. They will be a family. Pray for us all as we wait for that moment when we meet our little angel.
For me today it is all about recollection of this time last year.
I was being loaded up in STARFLIGHT and flown to Heart Hospital.
Once again, God's Hand was over me and I am celebrating
the 4th with family and friends and dreaming of the future!

Well we are glad that you are here to celebrate the 4th this year! I love you....and am glad I decided to come home today before the air conditioner decided to take a turn for the worse. It's nice and cool in my house in Houston. You better be glad that its been cloudy and rainy or it would be scorching hot in the house!

Love you...see you in Abilene.

Slow down....a difficult concept I think especially for women.
Glad this year's 4th was much less eventful than last years.
Your blog blesses me.

Heather said...

Yes, this 4th was so much better than last year. I was thinking about that last night and how Ash and I were doing 90 from Houston to Austin. YIKES!

See you in Abilene. I love you.

Glad that this year heading to the hospital was a cause for rejoicing & welcoming Jaxon Blair! Can't wait to meet her! I think I see a glow in the sky back towards Abilene. Could it be Mitchell Douglas??? I bet he will be wrapped around her little finger in no time. So fun welcoming all these little ones! Much to be thankful for!!!
