How I Wish!

I just love looking at babies and also holding and cuddling them. Babies are so cute and lovable. I'm just not blessed to have a baby and I've been longing to have one. Whenever I see babies I can't help myself to look at them, touch them and took photos of course. Just look at the photos below of this baby of one of our church members. She is so adorable and precious. Every time I see her, she gets cuter and cuter. How I wish I have a baby like her!

Balikbayan Box For My Family

My family in the Philippines just received the balikbayan box that I sent to them last June 16. It took six weeks before they got it this time. Last time that I sent, it only took 5 weeks. I even called the lady whom I sent it yesterday because I was already wondering why it took so long to reach my family this time. But last night, my sister e-mailed me and she told me the box just arrived there. I'm so glad they got it finally. So as usual, we were online a while ago and I've seen them in the webcam while they were opening the box. My hubby and I were talking to them and they were all so happy after everybody got their share. I was also busy taking photos while they were busy digging in the box. Their webcam was not so clear so the photos are not that clear. So here are the pics of my family that I took a while ago while chatting with them.

New Cook County Correctional Center, Chicago , Illinois

( I guess if I ever break the law, I'd better do it in Illinois !
Law breakers should have it so good!)
Once again the taxpayer gets stung.

It also shows that in most cases the quality of life for prisoners has improved considerably from

what you might expect. And I always thought prison was for punishment.!!!!!

Just in case you ever get these two environments mixed up,

this comparison list should make things a little bit clearer:

@ PRISON You spend most of your time in a 10X10 cell

@ WORK You spend most of your time in a 6X6 cubicle

@ PRISON You get three fully paid for meals a day

@ WORK You get a break for one meal, and you have to pay for it

@ PRISON For good behavior, you get time off

@ WORK For good behavior, you get more work

@ PRISON The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you

@ WORK You must carry a security card and open all the doors yourself

@ PRISON You can watch TV and play games

@ WORK You could get fired for watching TV and playing games

@ PRISON You get your own toilet

@ WORK You have to share the toilet with people who pee on the seat

@ PRISON They allow your family and friends to visit

@ WORK You aren't even supposed to speak to your family

@ PRISON All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required on your part

@ WORK You must pay all your expenses to go to work, and they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners

@ PRISON You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out

@ WORK You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars

@ PRISON You must deal with sadistic wardens

@ WORK They are called 'managers'

This is an amazing view! You would think it's just a painting but it's real. It's the beauty of God's wonderful creation.
