My dad lost his driver’s license a couple days ago. He figured he just left it in one of the schools that he travels to for work, but then he got it back in the mail. Included in the envelope was a small Bible tract and flyer for a church. It was in Spanish, and the woman who mailed it had written her name and phone number at the top. My mom asked my dad to call and thank her. I asked why my mom didn’t call since she can speak Spanish and he can’t. He said, “That’s what I said, but she said I have to try myself first.” I smiled at that. “We’re just an old married couple,…

Late – Early – Late

August 18, 2008

This morning my alarm went off at 4 a.m. and I pushed snooze until 4:45 a.m., apparently. That’s a lot considering my snooze only lasts 4 minutes. I usually don’t do that, but I guess I was especially tired. Anyway, I got up in a rush because I have to leave by 5:10 a.m. to catch the bus, and I still had to shower. I was all of a sudden filled with energy. But then when I was in the shower I realized that I have class today, so I didn’t have to be at work until 8 a.m. Immediately I was overwhelmed with sleepiness. I went from being late to being extremely early. So I took my time getting…

However, it is the worst toenail paint job ever, and I’m wondering if the bruises might not be more attractive. #2: I am devastated because Bennigan’s has filed for bankruptcy and soon will be closed down forever. This was one of my favorite stand-by restaurants. I always knew I could go there for a good meal (the baked potato soup and 1/2 county cork sandwich with a brownie bottom pie for dessert was my favorite). Never again. Tear. #3: A good friend of our family’s and…

Looking Forward

July 8, 2008

It’s good to have things to look forward to. For example: the weekend, seeing friends from out of town, a good vacation, heaven, blah blah blah. I think that one of the main reasons that I can usually stay so positive is because I always find something to look forward to, whether it’s little or big. People who have a hard time with this sometimes start negative habits just because it gives them something to look forward to. I was thinking about this concept this morning as I dragged myself out of bed. There are certain things that make it a little bit easier on me to wake up at 4 a.m. For example, when my alarm goes off I…

Me and My Aunt

June 29, 2008

This is me with my Aunt Rodda, my mom’s younger sister, at a baby shower she threw for my cousin’s wife over the weekend. She hates having her picture taken and I don’t understand it because I think she’s so pretty!
