cheers to newness
I woke up in the middle of the night and kept tossing and turning because these thoughts kept spinning in my head. (Not to mention the strong wind and rain banging on my window) So I typed this out on my phone, hoping to settle the restlessness. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here comes another year, another season of hope and expectations, and another threshold of change. It’s kind of a ritual...

The best gifts are the ones unseen
I’d like to write more, but it’s getting late. So for now I’ll just say that I’ve been blessed with the gift of genuine friends and family. In the spirit of Philippians 1:3, I really do thank my God every-time I think of you :)
grasping the holiday spirit
I tried to fill myself with any sort of Christmas spirit, hoping that as the day approached I’d get more excited and more grateful for the season. But it’s here….and I’m still not. I mean, of course I’m happy. I really do enjoy the company of my family and just being together. I really do love and am grateful the gifts I’ve received. I really do love the...

I’m not really one to regret anything, but I thought this was a good wake up call on making the most of now and taking the leap of faith on a big risk. Here are a couple good quotes from the article: We’ve been led to believe free time is slacking, but it’s actually the point of everything we’re working for — the time for friends, family, interests, hobbies,...

You know what's great about winter?!?
We wear so many layers no one gets to see our fat! That’s probably also why most of the big holidays are during the winter too. Makes sense huh? Mmmhhhmmmm =) So keep eating and keep layering, ya fattie!
Music is the key to the female heart.– Johann G. Seume (via grace-notes) I think I agree. If food is the key to the male heart, then music is the key to the female heart.

http://www.seattleu.edu/commons/article.aspx?id=66988 One of my most cherished memories from Seattle U was meeting and getting to know Father Rog. It was during a 5 day Silent Retreat and even though we weren’t able to speak to each other, something about Father Rog made him feel like an instant friend. He always had a huge smile plastered on his face and moved around with such graceful...
Want to know what hell on earth could be like? Try working with a group of women with simultaneous monthly cycles. Crabbiness, blame, sensitivity, tears, sarcastic laughter, pigging out……….quite an amusing agony actually.
Whoever you are that tried fraud activity on my bank account I hope you remember that karma’s a bitch. Besides, the jokes on you, my account was already empty.
