Celebrating One More Year Closer to 30!!

Darn... my birthday is tomorrow. I am turning 29, and yet I don't feel a day past 19! It feels as though time flies sometimes, and one could only wish to stop it for a second or maybe a minute or two. Does that make any sense? Is it that I have not stopped to take a deep breath and enjoy the air I breathe in? But really just stop, and think about nothing but what is around me. Not the material stuff, but the irreplaceable. Like my beautiful kids, watching them grow, watching them take on their little personalities. The intangible, like my feelings of love, appreciation, and sometimes even sadness, desperation. All the little things that we feel as we grow older *or wiser*. I sigh in complete content that for the first time in my life I am headed in a direction of spiritual peace and journey to appreciate what life has given me. Now that's a birthday gift.

I have been working at Language Line and it has been going well. It is, however, mentally exhausting and going to bed at 3:30am is tiring. However, I am grateful that I have the opportunity to work from home for a few hours. My blogging has been a bit slow lately, but I have continued to blog about The Real Housewives. Check it out... it is simply my opinions and thoughts about them and weekly show recaps and news.

My latest obsession has been watching Glenn Beck. Now before you start throwing stones at me, first hear me out. I have this dream that I can live a sustainable life, that I can guide my kids into living sustainably and providing the food that lays on their table. And a lot of what Glenn Beck says is so true. We have become so dependent on the government and who does what for us. But what would happen say agriculture comes to a halt? Who is going to provide food for us? Are we that incapable that we can no longer farm our own food? Now I am not saying drop everything and start farming, but what I am saying is be capable of doing things for yourself. How many of us are unable to cope with our problems and issues? Does a pill have the answer to our problems or will our problems be waiting for us after the pill wears out? That is why I have been obsessing with watching his show. To see that there is good in people and that we don't need the government handing things down to us. Instead to unite and be charitable, and if I am fortunate enough to give. You can't receive unless you give.

With that I am going to sign off... 'Til next time
