Your Life Story

for Kym
Maybe love is all anybody ever should believe in
Maybe life is just something that employs us till we die
Maybe all we know is that the sun will come up every morning
Maybe time can choose whether to be earthbound or to fly
everybody thinks they've got it down I won't worry,
the truth's always been found in your life story
Maybe you're the one waiting for the ship to find your harbor
Maybe you're the one looking past the forest to the trees
Maybe you still think the older that you get life just gets harder
Maybe you would trade everything for just one moment's peace Everybody strains to hear the sound of their heart's calling
Now you can write yours down it's your life story
Gather up your telegrams your faded pictures, best laid plans
Books and postcards, 45's every sunset in the sky
Carry with you maps and string, flashlights
Friends who make you sing And stars to help you find your place
music, hope and amazing grace
Maybe what we leave is nothing but a tangled little mystery
Maybe what we take Is nothing that has ever had a name
Maybe love will fade like the parchment pages of our history
Maybe life is made of flickers from some brilliant, burnished flame Everbody's waiting for a sign- I won't worry, I think we'll be just fine
In your life story It's your life story And my life story
This is our life story
Funny how your life story could be my life story
or her life story or his life story
but as MCC says, I think in time we'll just be fine.

What Does Love Mean?

This is so sweet. The last one will get you.

Slow down for three minutes to read this... it is so worth it. Touching words from the mouth of babes.

What does Love mean? A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?" The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love."
Rebecca- age 8

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth."
Billy - age 4

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."
Karl - age 5

Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs."
Chrissy - age 6

Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
Terri - age 4

"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."
Danny - age 7

"Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss"
Emily - age 8
"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen."
Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start
with a friend who you hate,"
Nikka - age 6
(we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday."
Noelle - age 7

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after
they know each other so well."
Tommy - age 6
"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore."
Cindy - age 8

"My mommy loves me more than anybody You don't see anyone else
kissing me to sleep at night."
Clare - age 6

"Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken."
Elaine-age 5

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says
he is handsomer than Robert Redford."
Chris - age 7

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after
you left him alone all day"
Mary Ann - age 4

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes
and has to go out and buy new ones."
Lauren - age 4

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down
and little stars come out of you." (what an image)
Karen - age 7

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and
she doesn't think it's gross."
Mark - age 6

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it.
But if you mean it,
you should say it a lot. People forget."
Jessica - age 8

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child. The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,
"Nothing, I just helped him cry"

Word of the Day: Domicile
Mood: Depressed
Music: La Sandunga, Lila Downs

My apartment lease is up at the end of this month
and I had soooooooo00000000000000000
wanted a new permanent residence other than
my current residence but what was
almost within my reach has once again
become elusive. Unfortunately, time is against me
since I have an upcoming foot surgery in
a few weeks. So wait again, I must
unless the winds of change blow my way again
in less than a week or so.
I had visions of how my garden/back yard would look
like with my white picket fence and two car garage
and of course the usual dog in the/MY backyard.

Texas Women

Don't tell a Texas woman what to do!!
Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties. The first man had married a woman from Colorado and had told her that she was going to do dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple days, but on the third day he came home to a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man had married a woman from Nebraska. He had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done, and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man had married a girl from TEXAS. He told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything, but by the third day some of the swelling had gone down, and he could see a little out of his left eye .... enough to fix himself a bite to eat and load the dishwasher.

....Can you hear me laughing from here! Only in TEXAS are tales bigger than life itself!
