Thought For The Day

Quando omni flunkus moritati:  When all else fails, play dead.

Matt

Posted in Family on August 24, 2006 by The Blonde

Matt is married to our oldest daughter, Carol. He has been in our family for a lot of years now, and has seen me and my girls through a lot of crap.  When we didn’t have anyone else to take care of us, he was there and done the best he could. And I love you for that. He’s just as stubborn as the rest of the family, but he sticks by what he believes in and will freely give you his opinion even if you don’t like it.  Also like the rest of the family.

Matt, you are like my own son, and I love you very much.  I will always stand behind you and support you.  Even though some of your beliefs are different from mine, I will still support you, because that’s what you do with family.  Even if I don’t agree with them. 🙂

(And yes, you will have fried bread for your birthday meal.)

Happy Birthday Matthew, I love you!

My Husband (AKA:The Bastard)

Posted in Family on August 22, 2006 by The Blonde

I love my husband more than I could ever put into words.    We were friends for a lot of years before we started seeing each other, and I think that made a lot of difference in our relationship.  We knew each other, he knew what I was like and I knew what he was like.  Neither one of us tried to change the other, because we already knew each others faults, likes and dislikes.  And we were both ok with that.

When we first started seeing each other I was coming out of a 21 year long BAD marriage, and it has left scars that are still not gone, and probably won’t be for some time.  He has supported me and helped me in every way that he can.  A lot of that healing has to be done on my own, but I know that he is there for me when I need him.

We have cried on each others shoulders, laughed together and at each other, and also fought with each other.  (And let me tell ya, I don’t know who is more stubborn and hard headed, me or him.)  And at the end of every day, we snuggle up together in bed and tell each other how much we love one another.  It’s the most wonderful feeling in the world, true love.  We have been together for 5 years and we have had some tough times, but I think mostly wonderful times.

Baby, I love you with all my heart. More than words could ever say.  Thanks for supporting me during some rough times, and thanks for loving me the way you do.  You are my soul mate, and I could never go on with out you.  I am very proud to be your wife.  I want to grow old with you, granted I will get there first, 🙂 but that’s alright.  Your a wonderful husband, you help me around the house when I need it and even when I don’t, which I appreciate and don’t tell you enough.  You listen to me when I have had a bad day, and you let me cry on your shoulder when I need to, and most of all  you love me, and that’s the most important part.  Never doubt my love for you.

I love you with all my heart and thanks for being my husband.  🙂

FAITH

Posted in From The Heart on August 21, 2006 by The Blonde

Faith.  What is faith, does anyone really know? 

I don’t like to talk much about religion because I don’t know a whole lot about it.  I have never been a religious person, I don’t go to church, never have.  I do think that if you believe in God, you shouldn’t have to go to a special place to pray.  God will hear you anywhere you choose to do it. 

When I lost my brother 9 years ago people would say that he is in a better place now, God has taken him for better things.  At the time I wasn’t too sure about that.  All I knew is that God took my brother from me before I was ready for him to go.  My brother had been sick for some time and we knew he was going be leaving us, but I just wasn’t prepared. I thought I was but I wasn’t, a person never is in that situation.  I always thought that was rather selfish on God’s part.  I was very angry at God and wasn’t too sure if I had any faith left.  I am still not sure. 

Why would He take a young women and strike her down with cancer and take her away from a loving husband and three beautiful children?  If that’s not being selfish on God’s part I don’t know what is. Michiyo was a nurse in Japan, she was a giver, not a taker.  Why would God take her off this Earth for his own benefit?  I have been asking myself that all day, and don’t have an answer.  The death of my sister-in-law, which I was never blessed with the chance to meet, has stirred up some old resentful feelings. And I am not sure how to deal with them.  I believe there is a God, but I just am not sure what He is up to sometimes.  And I just don’t know if I have any faith left in him.  I just don’t understand how He works.

So love your children like you will never see them again, tell them you love them, cherish them, show them.  And Mark, my husband, my soul mate, if anything were to ever happen to you, I don’t know if I could go on.  My heart would break into a million pieces.  And my parents, oh my parents,  I love you so much.  And my brother, I love you dearly, even though I don’t show it like I should, I am thankful that I have you in my life. 

So show your loved ones that you love them, tell them every day, you never know when God will decide that their time is up and take them.

Leukemia

Posted in From The Heart on August 16, 2006 by The Blonde

leu·ke·mi·a (l-km)
n.

Any of various acute or chronic neoplastic diseases of the bone marrow in which unrestrained proliferation of white blood cells occurs and which is usually accompanied by anemia, impaired blood clotting, and enlargement of the lymph nodes, liver, and spleen.

Ok, now that I have your attention, I am sure everyone knows what that is.  It just so happens that last night my husband, aka The Bastard, got a phone call from his brother and his wife was just diagnosed with this nasty, horrible thing.  I don’t know enough about the details to comment on anything, but I do I do know that she wasn’t given a very good chance of survival.  They have three young kids which makes it even more difficult on them, I am sure.  Danny is in the Army and has recently spent some time in Iraq, they just came back to the states and was hit with this.  How on earth do you prepare yourself for something like this.  You don’t.  Danny has had some rough times over the years, and certainly doesn’t derserve this.  You have to ask yourself, how do I prepare myself for loosing the love of my life?  What a crappy thing to have to do. God, I am so sorry Danny that you and your family have to go through this.

Danny & Michiyo, even though we have never met, my heart and prayers go out to you and your family.  I wish there was something that we could do to take your pain away.  And I mean that with all my heart.

So with that said, please don’t take your loved ones or your life for granted, one day they may not be there any more.

Please say a prayer for our family, they will need all that they can get.

AVIATION HISTORY

Posted in Fact Or Fiction on August 11, 2006 by The Blonde

Here’s some Aviation History everyone should  know:
 
You may remember that on July 8, 1947, witnesses claim an unidentified
object with five aliens aboard crashed on a sheep-cattle ranch just
outside Roswell, New Mexico. This is a well known incident that many
say… has been profusely covered up by the Air Force and the US
government.
 
However……. what you may well NOT know is that on March 31, 1948,
exactly nine months after that historic day, Al Gore was born.
That piece of information now has cleared up a lot of things.

Stolen from my friend Ron.
