To some degree we all judge other people. So, let me ask you a question:
What is something for which you are quick to judge others?
Let me ask you a question:
Who was your best friend in elementary school?
Sometimes I get super excited like a kid getting ready for a visit from Santa. When I get to play Santa with special gifts for someone I love it takes it to a whole other level. I will literally stop people on the street to tell them what awesome treat I have in store for so-and-so. I seriously feel like I am bursting at the seams with excitement and anticipation. It is a spectacular feeling. There’s an innocence and excitement to it that fill me with a childlike wonder and joy.
A couple of years ago my husband had a milestone birthday. I was trying to find ways to celebrate him in a way that he would enjoy. He is hesitant to have people over because he gets stuck in perfectionism, then the social stall kicks in and the end result is we rarely have adults over. So I knew…

Ive often felt like I’ve failed my friends. Infact, i know i have. Ive been the one that chose a relationship over a friendship, I’ve ditched people to move away and on to something else (usually only to return with my tail between my legs!), so its fair to say that through my own poor choices I’ve lost what i once considered good friends.
We naturally change friends as we go through life. We meet like-minded individuals and then our minds grow and develop, sometimes leaving said friendship faltering behind. Its not every time we lose a friendship that we actually feel that its a loss.
And then theres times when your completely taken off guard and all of a sudden those you considered your close friends seem to be withdrawing themselves from your life. The chatting slows, the tone changes, meet ups are few and far between. And no…

I can’t believe it’s been fifteen years. December 29, 2002 to be exact. Fifteen years ago today, my dear sister in-law Joanne was killed by a drunk driver. Joanne was an ER nurse on her way to work when she was cruelly taken away by a drunk driver at 6 o’clock in the morning. I had spoken to her briefly on Christmas day, she was busy and I knew I could catch up with her later. Later never came.
Nothing is more jolting than the phone ringing at 7 am, especially when your family lives out of state. My mother called me to tell me the terrible news about Joanne. She had been killed in a car accident. I could barely breathe, Joanne and I were very close. She had been a part of my family for 17 years. I remember when I first met Joanne. I told my brother…

I’m trying not to be shy about drunk texting, convincing myself that it’s no longer creepy but cute and romantic thanks to Sauti Sol. But tonight I’m not in the mood for drunk texting the romantic because my supposed Knight does not really have that flair for the emotional and the artistic things. Maybe he is just into artists because they are the real freaks (when they are not busy giving deep views about the world , which comes out creepy and twisted) they do not try to copy what is in movies…like everyone else who would rather take sex and dating tips from a page of someone else’s fantasies and imaginations. Tonight I feel like drunk texting the people I didn’t even know. It’s healthy to drop that awkward, “Hi” once in a while.
Did I just mention my supposed Knight? I guess I left out the shinning armor…

I want to take a quick moment and wish all of those celebrating a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope you have a wonderful day with friends and family! Take time today to show those in your life how much you appreciate and love them. Eat some good food and be thankful. Merry Christmas!
I used to be as happy as the next person. I had the same hope as any innocent child would have. But it all changed for me in one night. That’s why I’m here. To tell you about that night, and to tell you that if you’re taking…
