    We come here time and again (yes,

    incarnation) to learn, but really to remember. We each choose our parents, our best teachers to give us experiences that grow and evolve us. We choose painful experiences because this is how we remember compassion. And by the way, our patents choose us, too. It's called a soul...

    Having my 4 yr old tell me I made a delicious

    dinner. Makes my day. Even when it's a simple grilled cheese sandwich. He puts life in perspective for me and helps me see beauty and joy in everyday, simple things.

    When was the last time someone behind you at

    the grocery store gave you the extra $ (that you thought you had) to pay the cashier? People that do things like that amaze me. <3

    Somehow the future is both

    so exciting and so terrifying at the same time. And unfortunately, today it isn't even a 50/50 balance.

    I was at the shops purchasing a few groceries

    only an hour ago. Debating as to whether or not to purchase a shopping bag, I declined. After all, I managed to carry the items to the register with no issues. As I was walking to my car it became clear the 15 cent bag would've come in handy.. I was crossing the parking lot...

    Enjoy life while it's still great

    because you never know when it will go downhill in terms of situation and health. Sitting in the garage sippin' beer, smokin' a cigarette, listening to music and playing guitar, that's heaven.

    So I lost my student ID card yesterday,

    and some kind soul found it and went to the trouble of emailing and hand-delivering it back to me!!! Have faith in humanity! :))) I am so extremely lucky that he found it.

    Spending the weekend with 2 little ones really

    is good for the soul. They are hysterical, loving, naughty, bundles of joy. Pure joy! They make you appreciate kisses, hugs, sitting in the grass, spinning in circles to fall down, looking in awe at a grasshopper, and reading a book on zoo animals. They have recharged my...

    Call me a nerd or whatever

    but I absolutely love reading. I never want to throw books away after I've read them. I meet a lot of people my age that are actually shocked to find that I buy books to actually read & not study with. Whenever I'm on the bus or out somewhere people look at me like I'm alien or...

    He called me outside asking me to close the

    door behind me. I have something to show you, he says. He takes my hand and walks me around the back porch. We sit and look up. The stars are so vibrant tonight. We share a glass of wine and talk about how beautiful the stars are. It was so dark and the only thing I could hear...

    I miss tracing the lines of your tattoos.

    I miss the feeling of your shoulder blades the way your muscles flexed when we made love. I miss your laugh, that loll on your face when I'd say " baby I'd live in a card board box if it was with you". I miss you. R.I.P my heart.

    Every morning when my husband kisses me goodbye

    before he leaves for work, we tell each other, "Be safe and be happy. I love you and I like you." It makes me smile every time. All the simple wishes we have for one another wrapped up in a tiny phrase.
