Angels and Challenges!

      Since my last blog post many things have happened. Most were good, some were absolutely amazing and all were educational!

     I don't know if it has been the weather or if  I have found myself in a rut, but I am an adrenaline junkie and I am bored. I decided it will be fun to try to do one  thing each month, that I have never done before. I have also added to learn one new thing each month.

       There is this really cool challenge in China, first you get to climb the Heavenly Stairs of Mt. Hua Shan, then you have the opportunity to tackle the world’s most dangerous trail, the Hua Shan plank path. The plank trail leads high up the Hua Shan mountain just outside the city Xi’an.

     The stairs themselves are the easiest part of the climb and the secrets and landscape you will view is spectacular. When you get high enough up the mountain you can take a gondola to the plank trail. At the very top of the southern peak is a Taoist temple that was converted into a teahouse. Here is the link to learn more if curiosity should get the best of you

     Obviously, I am interested. I know it is crazy but.... my friend Cat said she will not climb with me but will meet me at the teahouse at the end of the journey.

     She said that when we were angels we could tackle some of the scary, challenging stuff.

     Speaking of Angels...there are many here on earth. As you may recall in my last blog post that we did not win the magnifier for Noah, but we had many votes.

     Quincy donated a Butterfly Magnifier to Noah and Marion saw its first butterfly of the year and Marion also had the opportunity to see a glimpse of one of the many angels here on earth!

     Janice out of the kindness of her heart, will be surprised to learn that the check she sent for anything that Noah might need was just the kick-off to the Noah Fund.   See the photos below.


There are many other angels out there. I would love to acknowledge them all but I do not know all of them personally. I offer a big heart-felt thank you to all of those angels!     Ever wonder what I do when I am not  dodging puddles and keeping my feet dry? I clean screens and windows...ok if I have to confess, I break windows trying to clean screens. I am not a fan of clear glass.

     Had the chance to help celebrate a couple of birthdays...Jenny Collin Hughes and Vallery Donahue!

     My father is doing better and my step-mother will be leaving the hospital today.

     Please keep all of those struggling in your thoughts and prayers. Next time we will discuss black holes...until then
