I'm usually alone in this...

...except my GiGi and my Tiff have played along with me.  I won't give up on it.  Yet.

It being...

It is a fun blog hop I decided to start with the hopes of not forgetting our past.  I pick a random year of the past and then you post images or facts or music or trends...all from that year!  Easy enough, right?  I hope you choose to play along tomorrow because we will be celebrating the fabulous year of...1996!

This is the year I graduated high school and since it has not been that long ago I figured maybe, just maybe, some of my young spring chicken bloggers might join in!  Come on guys....don't make me feel so all alone in this. 

Start your gathering.....THE YEAR OF 1996 MEMORIES!!!!!  This outta be fun.

Manic Monday - 09.27.10

My mother wanted me to be her wings,


to fly as she never quite had the courage to do.


I love her for that. I love the fact that she wanted to give birth to her own wings.

This post is for my dear friend, Nicole.  She lost her mother unexpectedly over the weekend and my heart is hurting for her.  For myself.  Another reminder....to say what you need to say.  Rest In Peace Mama Cheryl.  I love you.

I'll keep dreamin'...

...'til I can see my friend again.

My soul,
is as open as the sky.
Often time,
it's just as blue.


People tell me,
I need to keep on dreamin'.
That's just what I'm gonna do.


Now everybody,
wanna treat me like a house fly.
Turn me around,
and tell me to shoo.


Wanna tell me,
keep on dreamin'.
That's just what I'm gonna do.


'Cause every moral,
has a story.
Every hand needs a glow.
Sometimes it's full of glory.
Oh, but mostly, it's for the love.


It's the love..
Mmm..

It's the love.
It's the love that pulls me through.


'Cause when they tell me,
keep on dreamin'.
Thats just what I'm, I'm gonna, thats just what I'm gonna do.

Remembering My Juny

Today is a tough day for me.  I lost a very dear childhood friend one year ago today. 


He is the sweet face right there....with his girlfriend, another childhood friend of mine.

I ask you all to pray for his family and friends while we are still grieving over this devastating loss.  Pray that the heartless cowards that took his life are caught.  And that they receive due justice, here on Earth, and in front of our Savior.  Although, I don't think they will get to meet Him.  But, that is not my call to make.

I pray that we can find Peace in our hearts.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.


To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die.

Tears are God’s gift to us.  Our holy water.  They heal us as they flow.
