So I was just chattin' with Donna, and I sent a link to my blog. Turns out that I was able to help her create her own and bookmark them both. Here's what she said, "Maybe this is why it felt okay to stay home today. God know if I had a place to release, I wouldn't be on those games all day and I could progress, like study for my life exam and study my Mary Kay...too much on my mind stiffles me!I could even go out and do business if my mind was clear!!I did pray for a bridge so that I could get more productive! See how important you are?!" See how she mentioned prayer...I know right it's everywhere I get my everyday reminder from somebody. Those lessons I learn from my cousin are enforced by people she doesn't even know.That's a big strengthening agent for my faith.

Today proved to be a better day than I thought it would be. Me and one of my long time friends got in a big fight a few weeks back and we are friends again. If anyone read my "what Im doing" page I mentioned hoping I could fix things with my best friend before it was to late...well I think I may have accomplished that. She started texting me again today.
Also today I was questioning my faith and understanding of the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints(the church to which I belong), but my cousin was right behind me to catch me and help me along. I learn from her everyday. Today's lesson was: "PRAY! PRAY! and PRAY!"

Thoughts.......on surgery

I still don't know what to think of my father's surgery tomorrow. I guess it's good for him, but is it the right way to do it? Will he follow the diet? Or be one of the few that it doesn't do anything for because he keeps eating the same way? What will happen in surgery? Will I end up wishing I spent more time with him? Or will I still not care? I guess I've never really let my feelings on this come to the surface before now. His choice is his choice......I just wish they would've thought of the kids and our economic status first.

What Pain is Good Pain

Violence is never the answer
Or so they say
But is walking away the answer?
That hurts in a different way
But it's pain all the same.
A step away from a conversation
Can make someone think your giving up forever,
A punch in the arm can make your best friend your enemy.
What are you to do?
Physical hurt or emotional hurt?
No pain is good pain.

Favorite Songs of Life

Concrete Angel by Martina McBride

Temporary Home by Carrie Underwood

You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban

O My Father

True Love

True love
Waits in his hands
When he leaves
My world comes to a halt
When my eyes meet his
My heart fills with joy
And when he says "I Love You, Babe"
I know....
He means it....
I thought he meant it
I thought it was real.

Can anyone guess who I wrote this for?

Just Believe

Reach out and take my hand
I'm here to help
I won't let go
You're almost there
You WILL make it
I have faith in you
Now find faith in yourself
And just BELIEVE you will make it

Can anyone figure out what it means?

The Starfish Story By: Loren Eisley

Words to live by:

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking up starfish and gently throwing it back into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, "What are you doing?" The youth replied, "Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them back, they'll die." "Son," the man said, "don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can't make a difference!" After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man. he said.... "I made a difference for that one."

Everyone can make a difference. You never know who your helping.
