To whom it may concern:

To whom it may concern: You being around, means more than you know. Your smile, your actions, your happiness means more then you'll ever know. When you're not there, when you're not the happiest I know you can be, it is noticed. People see you, people know who you are. Whether they know your name or not, they know when you are around. When you are down, people notice. When you're frustrated, people notice. Don't ever think you're unnoticed, and that no one cares. Someone cares, whether you see it or not, someone cares.

Things I've learned lately

Its crazy how when you get older, things change. The way you dress, act, eat, and think all change. As well as the people to hang out with and what your actions are taking.

When I was 21, and living up by broad ripple, all I wanted to do was go to the bar and drink. Wanted to get free drinks and just dance with my girls. That lasted about a month. Especially since I had a very jealous boyfriend at the time, whom didn't trust me worth a darn. As I moved back home, away from the bars, drinking and going out really didn't mean that much to me anymore. Yes, I enjoyed a drink or two occasionally, but its not what I look forward to each weekend.

After meeting my David, all my mind was set on is, "When will I see him again?" especially living 2 hours away and me working all the time.  Still, I didn't feel like I was a grown up, due to not really have a lot of responsibility, I was just a home body. After getting engaged, and saving for the wedding, pay a lot more bills, and worrying whether we are gonna afford everything for the perfect wedding.

I am also realizing who my friends are and if they are really even worth trying to savor the relationship or not. Yes, I'm only 23, and I should be out there having fun and going to the bars and parties and what not. And I do like to do those things, but not every night or weekend. I still like to have a beer by a camp fire, or have friends over to play cards, or just chill. But there are more to life then drinking and partying.

Friends come and go through your entire life, however, its when you're getting older and making life changing decisions, that's when you will realize who your true friends are and the people who love and care about you. Going through a difficult time where you're scared to death being in the hospital, or just having a fight with the one you love, true friends will be there for you no matter what they are doing. If you find a friend that does that, stick to them like glue. They are very hard to find.

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. If you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, Stop; They will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, all emotions are beautiful. Life is Simple. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. LIVE YOUR DREAM, AND WEAR YOUR PASSION!

When a County Works Together

I was doing my daily look over Facebook when I saw a link my friend posted and if anyone knows anything they know how much I strongly dislike the Westboro Baptist Church, so I had to take a look. As I was reading, I was getting angry, but after I was done, I was very happy. This is what I read.

A very unfortunate event happened on April 7th. USMC Staff Sgt. Jason Rogers, 28, was killed in action by an IED while saving a fellow Marine in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He was brought home to be laid to rest when the not so wonderful Westboro Baptist Church decided to come a try to protest it.

According to a poster on The Oxford Square, a message board for Ole Miss, the Phelps made it to town, but got no further:
           They did show up, a few showed up a couple of days early.
A couple of days before, one of them ran his mouth at a Brandon gas station and got his ass waxed. Police were called and the beaten man could not give much of a description of who beat him. When they canvassed the station and spoke to the large crowd that had gathered around, no one seemed to remember anything about what had happened.
Rankin County handled this thing perfectly. There were many things that were put into place that most will never know about and at great expense to the county. Most of the morons never made it out of their hotel parking lot. It seems that certain Rankin county pickup trucks were parked directly behind any car that had Kansas plates in the hotel parking lot and the drivers mysteriously disappeared until after the funeral was over.
Police were called but their wrecker service was running behind and it was going to be a few hours before they could tow the trucks so the Kansas plated cars could get out. A few made it to the funeral but were ushered away to be questioned about a crime they might have possibly been involved in. Turns out, after a few hours of questioning, that they were not involved and they were allowed to go on about their business.
Ranking deserves a hand in how they handled this situation.
Sometimes, when all else has fails, you need the good old boys to get things done. Hats off to the patriots of Rankin, Mississippi!
 It made my heart so happy that people did what they could possibly do to make sure these people didn't make it to that funeral. No one deserves as much disrespect as these people are giving to fallen soldiers.

Spread the Love

Generation Love Music Video

So I'm the last person you would think I would like kid TV stars "music" careers. Like some of the Disney movies/shows kids who try to sing, or some of the Nick kids. I was watching CMT this morning and my first thought when I saw this girl, was, "Oh great, another TV kid trying to make a singing career."It was Jennette Mccurdy from iCarly. But I listen anyway because honestly, I was to lazy to turn the channel. First, she wasn't that bad of a singer, and 2nd, her song actually had great meaning. Talked about what Generation the kids were these days known for. The line is,

"What will they say about us,
they call us generation lost or
generation greed or they connect the generation
to a plasma screen or a generation why enough is not enough"

and sad to say, that is what I hear most people say about the generation these days. And for the most part its true. Working in retail, and with kids, I see a lot of this happening, and only a handful do I see something else. 

But what she was singing about is changing this Generation to Generation Love. Helping people in need, smiling more, Be someones hero, etc. I thought it was a great idea, and wish more people would do this. I know its a very very doubtful thing, but if more people were nice, took time out to volunteer somewhere, or just be nice to others in general, maybe the generation name would change....hmmm...

Would they say these things?
I volunteer my time.
I feed the hungry.
I read to the blind.
I change diversity.
I recycle.
I heal the planet.

Maybe think these things
Who needs me?
What am I waiting for?
How can I help?

Try to Do these things,m and you can make a difference. 
Be a good listener.
Say I love you.
Show Compassion.
Spread the Love.
Spread Sunshine.
Be a Hero.
Make a Difference.
Be Selfless.
Give your time.

The Real Heroes

Whats a hero consist of? Lightening fast Speed? Laser Eye Vision? Neat Gadgets & an Awesome Car? How bout not seeing your family or friends for months or months. Not being able to talk to them for weeks because of being on a mission and can't receive mail. Fighting for a countries freedom that consist of people who aren't always appreciative. Those are the heroes. The REAL HEROES. I am so thankful to have heroes like all of you. God Bless.

Easter Sunday

So I will be the first one to admit, I do not go to church every Sunday. Honestly, I can't go to church every Sunday due to me working two jobs. And you know what? I'm okay with that, because I know Jesus knows I love him, and he knows that I'm saved by grace. Church is just a physical place that people go to, to hear a man/woman preach about the great news, as well as surround themselves with people who have the same beliefs as them.

Which takes me to my very aggravating statement. If you don't believe in the same things as someone else, you have no right to sit there and bash them, or talk crap. We were made differently for a reason. If this world was made as the exact same people, it would a very boring world, let alone a very boring life. So yes, we are going to believe differently, whether its Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Wiccan, Christian, what have you. We believe differently, but that doesn't give us any right to sit there and bash our friends, family, or peers about what they believe. We can stand up for what we believe in, but there is no reason to bash each other. Only one person can judge, unless you're name is God, don't do it!
