wishing well

Its not what we have,
but what we use,
Not what we see,
but what we choose;

These are the things that
mar or bless
The sum of
human happiness.

Its not as we take,
but what we give,
Not as we pray,
but as we live;

These are the things
that make for peace,
Both now and after
time shall cease.


Rup Rup and I went to Grandmas this evening to watch the Rodeo, it was a pretty good show this evening. Gads you know life is boring when visiting your mother to watch the Rodeo is exciting.

it's funny I had always worried about losing my teeth, and now that three are gone I think I like my smile much better, maybe those wisdom teeth made things look to square or had misshaped my jaw line to where now it is a much nicer face staring back in the mirror. Of course maybe I'm just nuts and there really isn't any change, but I'd like to think so. Lord knows I can use all the help I can get in the looks department.


there is no way to describe the emptiness I feel. the lack of motivation or possibly the lack of a motivating factor to change things in my life that I can see need changing. The lack of motivation to even do the most basic of tasks, the lack of will to change things that I am able to change, and the lack of ability to accept the things I cannot change. As though I am in the middle of a river drowning and I'm unable to care if I survive it or not.


to love is easy but to know love is hard
to give love is the greatest gift one can give
to receive love without expecting it is an even greater gift.


Thoughts were lost in the forgotten world of where I was.


Life is such a mass of confusion right now I don't know my own thoughts


I saw a sign along the road,
Let the Lord fill your heart with Sunshine, is the words it said
I began to think
What was in my heart
Did I have one
It's so empty
I don't think so
Where is the sunshine


A bit from my norm today.

I was notified today that I had been accepted as a Community Leader here in Paris. For those of you that know me, you also know that I have been a Community Leader in the Wellesley neighborhood for some time, and am also the Co-Liaison there.

I have been asked thousands of times why I want to be a Community Leader. Several reasons.

I like to give back to my community, rather my real life community or my net community I enjoy helping others wade through the frustration of beginning to learn html and setting up a site I want to keep Geocities clean, so it's safe to allow our children to visit our pages and not be exposed to undesirable material By being a community leader, I can say thank you to Geocities, for allowing me to have a page here, free of charge So no deep thoughts today, well a few, on setting up an area on my sight here to offer help, and assistance to new homesteaders. But for now I will have to think about it, for I'm sleepy.


I bet you think I'm always sleepy, ah the life of a third shifter is always so.
