Ok, well a lot has happened since the last time I posted anything. For example my brother graduated, I bought a house and I am still wanting to get another dog. Most of my friends have either drifted away, graduated, or have children now. And can I just say I have some of the cutes nephews I have ever seen. My brother pierced his ear. I got my back bone back. Life is good, to be honest life is better then ever. Though I can think of a few things that would make life better, for example my house being finished and maybe three little words from my boyfriend, he is driving me nuts with that one. Other than that, things are great. I am keeping busy at work. And really have no major complainants about anything. Well execpt that people need to lighten up and not take life so seriously, people are getting so bent out of shape over the smallest things and not going with the flow. My advice, breath in, breath out and not take yourself so seriously. Please I laugh at myself all the time. Like the fact that I got burnt by a light bulb the other day, I thought it was funny. I took it as someone trying to tell me I need to get some sun. Anyway, lighten up readers and I will try to write more often.

First, before I get into this. This was suppose to be both my side of the story and Mike’s but I can’t seem to get him to sit down and write it out, so I will do my side now and I will add his later.
Can you believe it has been two years? I can’t at times, but I can’t wait for more. Anyways here is our/my story.
I guess you could say it all started with a girl named Annie, with out here, Mike and I would have never met. Annie and I were on our way to IL for our friend Crystal’s wedding, when Annie’s phone broke. Me being the person I am, told her she could us mine. She called Mike and asked him to pick her up a new phone that she would pay him back for when we got back to IN. She talked about how great he would be for me and all that other stuff the whole time we were gone, well almost the whole time, she also spoke about how great Jake was, and how much she liked him. Over the course of the three days Annie and I became pretty good friends, to be honest. When we got back to IN after the three day wedding celebration her and I drove up to meet with Mike at Verizon. There he was, in his black Sunfire and there I was in my white Sunfire. We walked up to him and I remember thinking “Wow. Look at him. Be cool, don’t say anything stupid.” I wanted to make a good impression on him so I could have a chance to get him better. I guess I did a pretty good job at that first impression, because he ended up asking my option on a shirt to wear to a concert he was going to on Monday (Keep in mind this was Sunday.) It turned out thought that we had got there moments to late, for Verizon had just closed. So, Annie being Annie, tells Mike he just has to see the pictures from the wedding, but she needed to get them developed first. So the three of us head over to get them developed. We get inside and I finally take my sun glasses off, and that is when he sees my eyes. According to him, that is what had him hooked. After that I tried to be all smooth and cute and flirt with him. The problem was I couldn’t remember his name and ended up asking him. We get to Annie’s place and the flirting continues. We talk, I make a fool of my self (nothing new) and we never did look at those pictures.
The time came to leave, Mike and I didn’t want to say goodbye, but we didn’t have any reason left to say at Annie’s, so we left. He went his way, and we went ours. On the drive back to my house all any could talk about was Jake, so I decided I wanted to meet this Jake so spoke of so highly. I found my reason to stay in town a little longer. We head to an ice cream place to meet up with Jake and I took my opportunity to call Mike and have him come over. He got there so quick I he was either in the area or didn’t stop for red lights or stop signs. I was so happy to see him again. We just talked. I don’t’ know how it happened but we all ended up at Jake’s house and then to play basketball. When Mike had told me about them playing basketball he said the “girls” where coming, and for some reason I thought they were playing to. So I decided to make a further fool of myself, put on a pair of shorts with my knee sock, and try to play. If any of you have seen me try to play basketball or any other sport, you know how sad or fun, depending on whom you are, a sight it is. But some how, out of me making a fool of myself, he asked me to go to the concert with him.
I don’t know how many of you have heard about the Dave Matthew’s concert, so I will sum it up. All day long, Annie and I were trying to figure out if it was a date or just hanging out, so I get up the guts to ask. I texted him “So…is this a date or just a group thing?” He text me back “Whatever you want it to be.” I text him back “You are the one that asked me to come, so it is up to you.” I get back, “Then yes, it is a date.” I couldn’t stop smiling, it was ear to ear. He picked me up and we went to dinner. There were for of us in his car, and for some reason (that will not be named) I had to sit behind Mike in the car. After dinner someone decided to bring their left overs with them for an after concert snake, sounded good at the time. Mike ended up having to put his brakes on fast and it went everywhere. I am talking the chicken, the rolls, the butter and the BBQ sauce everywhere. It was a mess. We finally get to the concert and it starts to rain. Mike and I just stood there and talked, didn’t even notice the rain, till I started to get cold. He decided to get a poncho for the rain, just as the rain was stopping, it was so cute. I can’t tell you what music was played that night, but I can tell it was an amazing night. We talked about so many things. It was amazing. If you haven’t experienced something like it, I can’t explain it. Anyways, he took me home and on the 22 asked me to be a more serious girlfriend. That was over a year and a half ago. I won’t say we have not had our bumps and bruises, but we have made it through, together. Anyways, that is the story of how we meet and got together. The story of realizing we were in love and saying it, is a story for another day.

Why is it that you can see the same thing over and over, and then one day you see it and a flood of memories come pouring back and you are just so over whelmed you don't know what to do. All you can think about is that memory, or that person, and no matter how hard you try, or what you do, you can't get it out, not that you really want to. Why is it that a mere memory can bring back such feelings. You hear a song, think of someone lost and can't help but cry. Or you see a certain type of car, giggle and can't help but smile. Why is it that our memories can have such power over us? I'm not complaining, because I would not trade those memories for anything or those people, and I wouldn't trade the feels and joy those memories bring me for anything either. All these memories bring up a memory of a song I once sang for a concert I did. A song by Cindy Morgan, "How Could I Ask For More." Memories are a blessing, they bring us joy, the remind us of where we come from, the remind us why we fight for what we want, the remind us not to make the same mistakes, but most of all the remind us to not take life for granted, to live life to its fullest and not let a moment pass us by. Especially moment that could form the best memories we could ever hope for. Sure, memories bring up old feeling, some times those feelings scare us, but we shouldn't run from those memories or feeling, we should cherish them and continue to make more beautiful memories.
"How Could I Ask For More?"
There's nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon
Waking to the sunlight, and being cradled by the moon
Catching fireflies at night
Building castles in the sand
Kissing Mama's face goodnight
Holding Daddy's hand
Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more
Running barefoot through the grass
A little hide and go seek
Being so in love, that you can hardly eat
Dancing in the dark, when there's no one else around
Being bundled 'neath the covers, watching snow
Fall to the ground
Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more
So many things I thought would bring me happiness
Some dreams that are realities today
Such an irony the things that mean the most to me
Are the memories that I've made along the way
So if there's anything I've learned
From this journey I am on
Simple truths will keep you going
Simple love will keep you strong
Cause there are questions without answers
Flames that never die
Heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise
So thank you Lord, oh thank you Lord
How could I ask for more

Ok, this is one of my words for one of my classes that I am working on right now, and for some strange reason I feel the need to share it with everyone.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejouices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
