Attached Already

Happy puppy. :) She has the BEST life. Everyone loves her. Everyone. :) Wouldn't that be nice to know that every single person you came across is going to love you? :D I mean, I myself know the feeling, but I'm talking about YOU here. ;)

;) Hee hee!

I wanted to stay around the house and work this morning, but honey decided he wanted to go have breakfast and go to Lowes, so that's what we did. The day was beautiful--chilly and cloudy, which, believe it or not, is how I enjoy my winters to be. :) Yes, I know I'm a bit of a nutter. If it's not going to snow, give me clouds; that'll do.

Brooke's boyfriend, Chad, is very sick. They were in the ER all day. We're still not sure what's wrong, but please keep him in your prayers. He's home now, and we're hoping this is just a horrible stomach virus.

Ok, I'm watching the Survivor finale. Later, gators.

I've been going through the thousands of emails I have saved on my gmail account and I found this poem that I've been meaning to share forever. I wish I knew who wrote it, because it's wonderful:

Lessons of The Heart

Love is not the latest ballad on the radio
It is the song of a lifetime

Love is not the rock on the finger of the girl you plan to marry
It is the size of the boulder you move to repair the marriage

Love is not the fairy tale that ends with happy ever after
It is the hand that wipes away the tears

Love is not in the spotlight
It is waiting in the shadows

Love is not winning the argument
It is listening with an open heart

Love is not flowers or candy
It is truth and honesty

Love is not the ease of the quest
It is the commitment to the relationship

Love is not expensive restaurants
It is the sacrifice made to feed a child

Love is not the dream come true
It is chasing nightmares away

Love is not the success of money
It is the failure to find fault

Love is not sweet nothings whispered in the ear
It is accepting the thoughts of others

Love is not the perfect picture
It is the flaw that makes us who we are.

I really needed to read that today. Thanks, Rachel.
