Just a few things to remember when dealing with cancer of a loved one or friend – my “do’s” and “don’t” list I learned with my mom.
The trick with happily ever after is people are always waiting for the after. After I lose 15 pounds I’ll be happy. After this semester things will be different and I’ll be happy. After I get married, after I get out of debt, after I get a new job, after I’m out of high school. I’m stopping that cycle.
Angels with us, what a beautiful and positive thought that is! God would not forsake us and leave us alone. He is very aware of each and every one of us and provides a way for us to accomplish our purpose on this earth.
We all fall into the ‘neutrals’ trap. Admit it, you do. It’s okay, in fact it’s kind of just a part of human nature. We get established, we get comfortable, and we don’t want anything to change.
My parents have binders of blackmail from my stubborn childhood years, just waiting for the day when I finally bring a boy home. They can’t wait to dish out on me, and I will faithfully be supporting the Western Family brand of brown paper sacks.
Dating is the pits. But sometimes, it’s not. My advice? Play the dating game. But… don’t play games with people’s feelings.
There’s so much more to people than their appearance. Cutting your hair really helps you see people for who they really are, it’s amazing.

Maybe it’s because nicknames to me are a stepping stone. Feeling comfortable enough around someone to start giving them a nickname is a pretty big deal. It means you’re friends. And not just the head nod, wave in public because you have to friends either.
So, my eyes were opened. I went on matching my socks and judging those who didn’t. I just couldn’t believe they couldn’t match socks?!? How hard is it right?
