Stand a little Taller

I just wanted everyone to know that I love my Heavenly Parents, and my  brother Jesus Christ.
It's the least cool thing to say out in public (it seems like), but if people can go around talking about the drugs they do, the drunken deboturies, and any other various examples of lack of self respect; well then, I should be able to talk about my beliefs, that lift me higher, without feeling like I am going to offend someone.

To my fellow believers out there and to those who are not, the times they are a changin'. Birds, fish, cows, and all sorts of animals dropping dead everywhere, more natural disasters than ever, wars and rumors of wars (it feels like an M. Night Shyamalan movie). Today does not seem like a day to say "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em," but I tell you that it is. Because I know that the Lord has assured me that WE will win. That light will vanquish the dark, and a new day will dawn. So to those on the other side, feel free to apply said adage to yourselves. You will not win, so you might as well join us.

 I know that if I follow the Lord's plan for me that I will be lead safely down the path that is meant just for me. He loves me, he knows me by name, and he has called me to do his work here on earth. The same goes for each and everyone one of you. I want all of you to know that I love you too, whether we've ever met, or not, you are my brothers and sisters. I am not some crazy Bible girl, though I am a girl crazy about the Bible. I am just trying to live a life that will make me and those around me happy and this is the best way that I have found to do that. If you have any questions, let me know.

So I'll leave you with this diddy:

Know that I am not perfect, but I am trying dang hard to get there :)

Did you know that I looooooove Jennifer Lopez,
also know as J Lo, Jenny from the block, Mrs Marc Anthony.

I told everyone in high school (much to my bff Megan's dismay) that I thought I looked liked aforementioned honey goddess. My booty backed me up.

When I met Brandon I told him that I just wanted him to make enough money so that I could be J Lo. I guess I was slightly kidding. He was slightly in awe, I'm sure, but had a few misgivings as to how I was going to get from a thrift store clothes-crazy haired-bag lady feel thing going on to Perfection. I told him not to worry, the latina in me would find a way. Did I mention my bum.

I saw her on Ellen today; still rockin' it. She lifts my spirits and reminds me why I get up in the morning. My friends, aren't you glad that you are around to watch my beautiful transformation.

For your viewing pleasure:

New Start

Yellow folks!

I know you missed me...people have told me. Of course, they were all members of my family. But they already get to hear what I have to say frequently, so that must mean that those who do not frequent my inner sanctum must really miss me.

I was going to try and make this more concise (my blog writing style), you know, as a fresh start new years resolution type thing, but it seems that's already out the door.

FYI: I was gone so long because baby V pulled my laptop off a stool and sent it to robot heaven. I decided not to replace it right away and had a very lovely technology respite.

I hear lots of people saying it, but I too feel that 2011 is going to be an exciting year. I'm really looking forward to it. My big goal of the year is to enjoy what I have.  Taking special care with my home and family. Imperfection means only that we're growing and learning, and hopefully loving. I've found that in too many instances I don't appreciate something until it changes; well, I repent! Here's to the moment!

All my love,
