Was in the kitchen and a random person on the floor of my building came in. He asked, “How are you today?”
I said, “fine and you?”
He says, “Excellent! I am the only one on this floor feeling excellent.”
“Why do you say that?” I said chuckling.
He responds, “I’m just kidding… just glad to put a smile on your face. Now I got my pay’s worth today.”
That was really sweet. Things like that are things I like to hear. We should have more people like him in the world. Simply just trying to put a smile on everyone’s face.
“[I want] a man who is honest, and kind, and sexy, and exciting, secure, and rational, and consistent, and who will love me like crazy until the day he dies.
I’m not finished…
i want the kind of relationship where we’re making sure that we make each other better by pursuing our highest selves so that the end of our lifetime, we can look back at what we built and we can pass that on to our children who can learn lessons about love, and friendship, and companionship from two people who are willing to take the leap, and trust that true love is real… and not just real but the most powerful thing in the world.”
She said exactly what nearly every girl dreams.
What the heck? Since when is Glee Marketing itself as something other than a family show?
I wanted to read it to see how another person of faith dealt with that issue. I thought that maybe it would open up ideas on how to wean a person into faith. But instead it was totally opposite. Coming from a Christian book, Ignite Your Faith, I would have thought that it would provide suggestions. Instead, in its own subtle way, it provided criticism that lead to leaving the unchristian partner.
I think that maybe this book is one of those that take out scriptures from the Bible, while taking it out of context because they inserted this quote at the end of the article:
Now doesn’t that sound unchristian to you? First of all, just because you don’t believe in God does not mean that you are wicked. Is this telling me that a murderer, a sex offender, a devious person can just believe and that will prevail in heaven? And yet the one who is kind hearted, giving, loving, and genuine but does not believe will not be so lucky with God? Who are we to judge? I like where my church’s beliefs are headed. “No matter what, we accept you.” I understand that my family desires for me to have a practicing Christian partner. But even the practicing Christians have their flaws. Now if God put a man in my view who is not Christian but is good to me, then I’ll just think it’s meant to be. It’s God’s plan. My dad said, “Maybe that’s why God sent you to him. To teach him.” The other day my partner made me smile. He called me his “angel.”
“I’m a hopeless romantic. It’s disgusting. It really is. I’ve seen ‘While You Were Sleeping’, like, twenty times, and I still believe in the whole Prince Charming thing.”

Today I pledged to sponsor a child in need. My mom has been sponsoring a little girl from Guatemala and I am proud of her for that. What little we give truly helps! When my mom and I entered an area where they had numerous folders with all the children’s pictures on the cover. She said, “Why don’t you get a little Colombian child?” Of course she said that since my boyfriend Andres is Colombian. So I searched and luckily found one little pride and joy. My new little boy is named Donny. He’s 6 years old and is so adorable! I have a baby picture of Andres and their smile is so similar. How coincidental it is that this little boy’s favorite subject is Computers when Andres also specializes in Computer Security. I can’t wait to start writing letters and sending gifts to this little guy! And I know I’m going to need help from my new Colombian family to write in Spanish.
I went to a “Pumpkin Patch” today. It was more like an October Festival. Nice weather which allowed for running around in a corn field maze, sliding down 30 ft slides, and petting the cutest baby goats and cows!
Towards the end of the crazy adventure, Michelle (my kid cousin) and I went to go get us each a large pumpkin that we could carve today. (I sculpted the infamous Captain Davie Jones.) Most of the pumpkins just laid in groups while there were a select few that were already weighed and priced.
I remembered seeing a brief description of the dollar sign for an article but all I caught was that the dollar sign currently has one strike through it. But today when I was looking at these overpriced pumpkins, I noticed that whoever wrote the amount of its worth must have been my age or older because the dollar sign was written with two strikes instead of one. When did this change occur? I guess there is no point to sacrifice .01 of a second to write a second strike? What other subtle changes are there in our nations symbols starting from 10 years ago?
THE SEARCH IS OVER!!
Found in both Los Angeles and Virginia are two amazing babies!
Today I spent a good portion of my day visiting these kids. Though they are in their terrible twos, they are at the peek of their enthusiasm and curiosity. Crawling under staircases, riding on peoples backs, jumping off the bed into a mountain of pillows! And these are only a few things that I saw tonight. But of course it reminded me that children definitely know how best to have fun!
Personally, I’m curious about the correct way of raising children of the same age. When it comes to buying toys, do you buy each child the same thing to prevent future disputes starting with the words, “I WANT…”? One wants to follow the other. One wants to wear exactly what the other is wearing. One wants to drink the same as the other. To be carried, to be hugged, to be fed… the list is endless. In this day in age, should we still promote uniformity (normality) or try to influence the idea of individuality (uniqueness)?
My Answer: It depends.
