I believe that God is good.
I don’t believe that it’s appropriate for you to tell for you to tell me so when my daughter dies.
When my daughter dies, it’s my job to tell you that God is good. Until I can do that, don’t be like Job’s friends. Offer your support, and wait in silence.
Don’t try to make the pain go away. The pain doesn’t go away. Hurt with me.
If you are hurting, I hope this helps you.
If you know someone who is hurting, I hope this helps you help them.

Love the Spanish Moss
This monument is where Nathanael Greene is buried. We were introduced to him when we studied the American Revolution when the children were younger. Andrew set out to learn all he could about him. How fitting that Andrew now lives where Nathanael Green is buried. When the American Revolution began he was a militia private, the lowest rank possible, and he emerged from the war with a reputation as George Washington's most gifted and dependable officer. He was given a plantation near Savannah after the war. Eli Whitney was on his plantation and invented the Cotton Gin there.
Here is Kaitlin with her large format camera. The comments we got from other tourists were very funny. They were all impressed with the size of the camera, most of them were using their Iphones to take pictures.
Here is where Andrew wanted to eat lunch. If you ever go to Savannah, put this on your list of places to eat. They are open only from 11-2, they only take cash or checks and the cost is 16.00 a person. We got there at 10:30. We got in to eat at 11:35.
You eat family style with
Kaitlin loved the banana pudding for dessert!

"That would be me, Carl" I think Carl was a speechless. Oh well, we got the credit card company alerted and Carl too!
This was the best thing I ate in Savannah. Kaitlin used her fancy app to steer us to them. Gawga Nachoes was what they were called. Chips, sweet bar b que, cheese, onions, sweet pickles and jalapenoes. To say that they were unbelievably fantastic would be an understatement. Next time we go there, with Carl- of course, I'll get this as my meal. We hope to make these soon at home.
And of course dessert... banana egg rolls. It had bananas, peanut butter and chocolate. When we go back, this will be the dessert I get!And for the record, none of us got beer.

This is one of our desserts. It is a praline basket. Oh my goodness, was it ever good.
Here was an appetizer we got, southern sushi. Carl loved it, I thought it was interesting.
You cannot go wrong with shrimp and grits. This one even had greens.
Here is a fun picture we made in the park in front of The Pink House.I ate at The Pink House about 40 years ago with my girl scout troop. We came to Savannah to see the Girl Scout founders home.

- Attend an art display in a style you don’t particularly care for.
- Listen to a different radio station.
- Spend some time reading in the room in your house where you spend the least amount of time.
- If you have land or a yard, go stand in part of it where you don’t think you’ve ever been before.
