the Holidays are winding up and I’m kinda ready for it. . know what I mean. I just gotta get the decorations all bundled up and put away nicely and I’ll be done. YES!!
I thought I would write today for dear friends. Recently I have met new friends and have had the great fortune to spend time with old friends. I just wanted all of those in my life to know that I have a huge heart for all of you!
Heather, who has been with me since I was 15, YOU ROCK lady! I hope that the new year brings you the joy you deserve! Mrs. JF, I love you! I hope that the New Year brings you health (kick that cancer’s ass!!) I know how strong you are, but know that I am the shoulder to keep you up when you need a break (cause we all know you never ask for help or ever stop!)
KLJ , you will never know how you inspire me on a daily basis! Prior to meeting you I knew I was a strong, confident girl, but I never knew what I was capable of doing until I met you. You give me reason to try harder, do more and become involved. Your small ripple in my pond has turned into a wave ready to adapt and conquer!!
And Rizzi, what can I say other than Bues!! You are my balance! You truly are my “other half”, my bestest friend in the universe and words couldn’t even touch what and who you are to me! Truly, Madly, Deeply, COMPLETELY in love with you!
To those that I haven’t met yet, it will be unforgettable, exciting and a friendship with depth, you won’t regret it. . Promise 🙂
To the lights of my universe. . my kids. My heart swells just thinking of your faces! You encompass me and give me reason to keep going when life gets tough. You teach me more than I thought possible and I’d take class with you guys over anything else life has to offer. You are the future and I believe that you will have an impact on this universe that will make the future brighter for all that surround you! Even through the moments of frustration, we hug, kiss, laugh, and live life like will be taken away at any moment, there truly is no regret with how we live together! Keep teaching me and I’ll keep listening and learning. . I LOVE YOU!!
This is Wyatt receiving his award for Wildcat of the Month. I think I cried way to much and he probably got sick of hearing “I’m so proud of you” but I really am. This son of mine is smart, witty, funny and not bad to look at! He won his award for best scores, making friends with all he meets, turning in his homework on time, and though not announce, I think it may have something to do with the fact that he makes his teacher a card every night telling her how wonderful she is.
I love ya Wyatt, I’m the proudest mom! You are incredible and I know you truly are one of a kind!
I volunteered for EU. I’d have to say it is amazing work that all of them do! I had a new prospective of how personal their work is and how hard, at times, it must be. Even with that said, I can’t imagine how gratifying it must feel knowing your making change for a huge group of people. Everyday you walk through the door of your work place it is impacting hundreds, if not thousands, of Utah citizens. Of course, being who I am, I was jealous that I didn’t have a cute little desk with a computer and pictures of my family sitting in that lobby. The nice thing about volunteering is it encourages me to try harder and maybe. . . just maybe. . if I irritate them long enough that cute desk I dream about will become a possibility. I can no longer work somewhere that doesn’t believe in me, but I could only leave that job if it was for the “perfect” job. It’s not about money, quite the contrary, it’s about believing in what you do and having enough passion to pull you through the hard days. At EU that would be me, the passion and drive would keep me dedicated. Currently, I work in an environment that is counterproductive to my lifestyle and I feel like I’m “selling out.” My ticket out of that feeling was school, but my job found a way to take that away, therefore, I hope all the lovely people at EU are ready for me to be at their doorstep every chance I get so that they can see what I have, what I will give and what I’m ready to learn. . just short of begging of course 😉
I love making new chapters in my life and I believe I began writing a new one on Dec. 08
to buy christmas decorations because it has Ho Ho Ho in it?? Seriously, I live in O town and I giggle to think of the double meaning. I think I have problems 🙂
So got the Christmas tree all decorated and I have to be honest, I wasn’t really in the mood. I believe that Christmas is the most over rated holiday. It know longer has the meaning it should. It’s gluttony and I can’t stand the race to get the “best” gift. I love that I’m with someone that feels the same way. I think that we will be making a dinner and dropping it off at a house in our neighborhood, along with “presents” – you know, the things one “needs” in life (hygiene products, food, and warm blankets). That to me is the meaning of Christmas. It’s not stampeding people to death for the “perfect” gift, not spending a shitload of money to make your kids happy and it sure as hell isn’t my tree looking like Martha Ste**’s. I think that this is the time of year that I stop believing in mankind.
Wow, I’m a bundle of freakin joy!! But seriously, why isn’t it Christmas all year long?
