I am a girl who loves my family. They are 1st in my life and everything and everyone else is secondary. My friends do come in very close behind family and some of my friends have become my family. I am one of those people who will charge hell with water buckets to protect those that I love. I have my son and daughter in law, two beautiful little grandsons, and one very active Rottie. I love life and try to live it to the fullest. I love the ocean, mountains, horses, and the great outdoors. I believe in God, my man, my family, my friends, honesty, morality, communication, & dignity. I believe that when it comes to friends or family... you are either with me or against me.
My heroes are my parents; may they both rest in peace, and my husband who serves our great nation in the United States Army. He willingly serves so that you don't have to. And by the way, if you woke up free on this day, thank a soldier.
I can make it to the fence in exactly 2.8 seconds.... can you?
IF YOU ARE A VIETNAM VETERAN
AND NO ONE HAS TOLD YOU YET...
Support our troops...past, present, future.
My MOTHER who fought the battles but lost the war...I wish I could have said all the things I wanted to say, but I was young and the tears got in the way. But if you think she's gone, think again...then look toward the night sky; for there she stands, shining brighter than all the other stars in the heavens... and still guiding my way.
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need...
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it.... DAD
May He Rest In Peace
Girls like us don't come along often... Like us and you'll grow to love us. Hate us? You're just wasting your time. You can't beat us and you sure as hell can't join us...
Failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part...unknown
You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig... The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
Never argue with idiots; the people watching may not be able to tell the difference...unknown
Keep your friends close and you enemies closer...unknown

Well behaved women seldom make history...Marilyn Monroe
I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way...Jessica Rabbitt

The road to truth is long, and lined the entire way with annoying bastards...Alexander Jablokov
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same....Ronald Reagan
Why is it that we choose two people to run for president and over fifty for Miss America?
Why is it that children can't read a Bible in school, but they can in prison?
If pros and cons are opposites, wouldn't progress be the opposite of congress?
As I sit here alone, listening to the rain & Billie Holiday, I realize the two go perfectly together...For reasons apparent to probably only myself, both make me miss home. I miss the fall rains of Tennessee & the many nights drinking a glass of beaujolais & dancing to wonderful music in my house, dimly lit, for no other reason than that I could. The sounds of rain & great music combined with the sounds of high heels clicking against hard wood floors & laughter...
Although certainly not innocent at the time, I was far more innocent then than I am now. The times since those days have etched the memories and wounds that come from living life, deeply into my soul. Times that others may have long forgotten, but for me will remain forever & are a large part of who I am today.
Rain & Billie Holiday... yeah, they go together perfectly. I close my eyes and I swear, I can almost smell Tennessee; & for a moment, I'm home again...October 2009
Have you ever had a sadness ~ creep into your veins, reach right down inside your soul, and make you feel insane?
Have you ever had that glimpse ~ of the depths inside your soul, and found the things you've left behind have left a gaping hole?
Have you ever felt your mind ~ could not find any peace, the battle raged inside your heart looking for relief?
Have you ever felt the pain ~ that drove you to your knees, with all that screaming in your head, yet no one hears your pleas?
Have you ever stood among a crowd ~ and felt so all alone, and looked around to realize you can't find your way home?
Have you ever searched for answers, the ones you couldn't find? Stop looking now and understand, you're only wasting time... ~ Jada ~
I have also always thought the best way to discern a persons character is simply to sit back and
quietly observe; and in time, all of your questions ~ both answered and unanswered will reveal the story. As life unfolds before me and as stories are revealed, I find myself being amused and disappointed at the same time, yet for some unknown reason, I manage to remain optimistic....stay tuned
