on hearing God

so, in the past week i can very distinctly hearing (or seeing, or learning from, however you wnat to put it) God in 2 different situations. i want to share those here...

first, one morning i was outside with my son, mazerick, how is 3. we were all bundled up and standing on the street corner. there was snow everywhere. he was in an awesome mood. he was so happy. he stood on the corner with me... our road is fairly busy... and whenever he saw a car he waved, expecting them to wave in return. when the person in the car waved back he was ecstatic. the thing is though... he was expecting them to wave back. there were a few times that the person did not see him, or he waved to late.... it was only in those situations that the person did not wave back. how can someone resist a totally cute 3 year old waving ecstatically? seriously:) anyway, God spoke to me through that. it was kind of like he was saying... "when you get that excited to hang out with me... or to hear me... how can i not smile? how can i not come to you?" hmmmmmm... just my thoughts.

another was on christmas eve... my husband, son, and myself took some donuts to my grandmas assisted living place. i took some into the nursing home part. while i was there i saw the old guy... nearly 100, in his wheelchair rolling by an old lady... (not to uncommon for a nursing home)... but he said to her... "move over, beautiful... it's christmas!" it was SO cute.... and God spoke to me through that too. he said to me... "it doesn't matter where you are at in life... it makes no difference.... you have the ability to make someone smiile." hmmmmm... just some more of my thoughts...

be blessed.

i LOVE to laugh.

hahahahaha. (long and loud and clear)

so, i love to laugh. sometimes i do things that i think are funny.... and they would be funny to middle schoolers, but sometimes i guess they are not funny to the general public. my bad. that's why i LOVE middle schoolers. i tell people.... "i learned everything i needed to know in middle school." it's not really true, and i definitely wouldn't want to go back and relive those days, but i do still have that humor. sorry. it's just true. i don't want to hurt people. i'm a real people pleaser. but, man... i just love to laugh. so, have a laugh with me. try it. you'll feel younger. for real.

one thing i do not want is to hurt you with my words. so please.... if i do hurt you with my words.... punch me in the throat. no, for real doe.... punch me hard. okay, maybe not.... but yeah.... i try to laugh in love. so, try it on for size. laugh in love. good times.

pizza for breakfast

Mazerick and I went to "The Wooden Peel" for dinner last night. Naturally, we had leftover pizza for breakfast. Following is our conversation...

Me: Pizza for breakfast? The Peel is the best!
Maz: Daddy says the peel is lame.
Me: Daddy needs Jesus.
Maz: Lame.

And, we continue eating our pizza.... mmmmmm, mmmmmmm, good.

vivid random memories and chai tea

no... my memories have nothing to do with chai tea. however, i am drinking chai tea. and, i am having memories.... memories from the past... that have nothing to do with anything. just thoughts of rememberance.

i was in 7th grade. i went to lunch at school, and sat with the same friend that i'd been best friends with for years. she said on this particular day, "i'm sorry. that seat is taken." and that was it. that was the end of our friendship. pretty stupid how things can be so petty, and yet so drastically change peoples lives all at the same time. it was that same day that another kid, who seemed to be kind of a loner, said... "you can sit with me." and then it was just an unspoken thing from there... i was then best friends with him. we hung out all of the time. called each other on the phone. complained about being treated like crap from certain people. i went to his house. he came to mine. one day he asked me to be his girlfriend. i said no. he's gay now. that sucks. he's still a great person though. love him. anywho. that's it for that memory.

this chai tea is really good. i just noticed there are 2 transactions on my bank account that are online transactions that i have no clue where they came from... time to investigate. have a wonderful day!

disclaimer: this blog was pretty random and uneventful i realize, but i was due.
