Guess what??? I started a new blog: Nettie's Notes.

I love Jane Eyre. Her story is the perfect mixture of love, tragedy, self-victory, passion, and eventually, "happily ever after" ... the ideal Valentine romance. A few years ago a new film of Jane Eyre was released, and my girlfriends flocked to the theater to see this latest chick-flick.
Afterwards, we discussed all of the heart-wrenching details. "Mr. Rochester was so handsome." "Jane was so right." "True love always prevails." Any girl longs to be smart, modest, serene, quietly beautiful, and completely adored by someone who needs her desperately.
|The Hunsaker Family, Christmas 1993|
It was December of 1993 when Papa's Song happened. I was a junior at the university, and life was coming to a bend in the road. During my Christmas break, I had several touching moments at home with my family. The most memorable was on Christmas Eve, when Papa rocked me by the tree for the last time, singing a song he had sung to me every Christmas for as long as I could remember.
"Biggie" size your family. I'm serious! Although the latest news topics generally discourage any "biggie" sizing (i.e.: let's fight obesity in America), in one life department - families - upgrading is essential. Not just essential, but vital to our world. Yep, you heard me right. I'm encouraging - even promoting - large families and lots of children.
