Girls, girls, girls gone wild!!

I'm now living in hormone central! My son, whom I love with all my heart has turned from a once happy go lucky, let's just play video games kid into girls, girls, girls gone wild teen! This change happened literally the minute he walked into the front doors of his middle school and started seventh grade! I yearn for the days of compromise, no emotional break downs over being embarrassed by well....everything, free from Facebook obsession, text messaging, brand name clothes and shoes and freaking out because of a zit. My head is literally spinning! 

Where is the little boy who used to love to wear cowboy hats because he wanted to look just like his best friend Woody from Toy Story; the little boy who once said "Mommy will you marry me?" 

I know those days are long gone but I still cherish them. I've learned that you have to live in the here and now. No matter how many pictures or videos you have it will never bring back the touch, the smell, the laughter of that moment. Be present, be thankful and realize that no matter how frustrating it is and believe me I's still a blessing from God. The good, the bad, the ugly, the hormonal teen who you just want to make stay in their room until their hormones have leveled off are all a blessing.....until tomorrow~

We survived the "Rapture" of 2011....

So I know this topic has been talked about from twitter to cable news to probably around the water cooler at work but I thought I'd share my thoughts on the whole "Rapture of 2011". 

I'm not sure why any Christian group would think they could predict the exact date and time of Jesus second coming. All it takes is to open ones Bible and turn to Matthew 24:43-44:

"But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into".

"So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

(Don't you just love the wisdom that's between those pages! It makes sense, right?) 

The whole point is to have trust, be obedient and have faith in our father. If we follow that then we'll be prepared for Christs second coming and it won't matter when~

My second entry!!

Besides sharing my life on this blog; I'm going to discuss current events, social issues and from time to time just sheer gossip. In the last year, I've become a horrible insomniac, which opens the door to late nite munching, watching bad tv, playing games on my phone (gin rummy is my current favorite) or reading The Southern Vampire Series. This morning I woke up around 5 am and while channel surfing I came across the old series "Boston Legal". It's funny how you never notice a show until its been placed in syndication. I missed the majority of the episode but caught Candice Bergen reading the poem "First they came...." by Pastor Martin Niemoller.

Every time I hear this poem being read, it stops me in my tracks. I thought I would enter this as my second entry on my blog..

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me..

First entry!!

I decided to blog about my life because some things are just to bizarre, funny and sometimes heartbreaking to keep to myself. I thought this could be a place where I could express my thoughts on being a single mom while trying to juggle education, seeking full-time employment and the ups and downs of dating in the days of texting instead of calling, blogging instead of writing letters and where you'll have a better chance of meeting your soul mate sitting behind a computer then walking down the street.
