March 21 - One Year

We can shed tears that they have gone, or we can smile that they have lived.

We can close our eyes and pray that they will come back, or we can open our eyes and see all the good they have left us.

Our hearts can be empty because we cannot see them, or our hearts can be full with the love that we've shared.

We can turn our backs on tomorrow and live yesterday, or we can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

We can remember them and only that they have gone, or we can cherish their memory and let it live on.

We can cry and close our minds, be empty and turn our backs, or we can do what they would have wanted: smile, open our eyes, love and go on.

Love you and miss you - H

Cancer Sucks

I was in the middle of writing a funny post, but then was hit with some sad news. Mark Cosens put up a good fight, but cancer has a mind of its own.

We know Mark from his high school days in Jefferson. Most recently he blessed the Madrid School District with his presence as an administrator until his illness forced his resignation.

The world lost Mark this afternoon. May God bless his wife, sons, parents and rest of the family.

Cancer sucks.

It's About To Get Ugly

I find it interesting that I still have a lot of people visiting this blog, but they rarely venture over to Trendy Dollar - which is where I spend most of my blogging time these days.
I know personal finance can be boring, but really you only have two options regarding your money: to not pay attention to it and be broke and in debt OR pay attention to every penny and live a happy, successful and peaceful life!
My current article on Trendy Dollar is introducing readers to a personal development dude who is most definitely not boring. Larry Winget. Come on over and meet him. Even if you don't think you need his advice, you'll at least get a kick out of him.

Back to Life As Normal

I'm back in Iowa and have recovered from my Diet Mountain Dew withdrawal. Did you know that they DO NOT sell Diet Dew in Houston? You can buy it by the case but if you want to just run into a gas station and get one, you are out of luck. I don't get it. I did drink my share of Dr. Pepper while in Texas just to try to fit in. I happen to like it but it doesn't have the same amount of caffeine!

On to a totally different topic...

Yelled by Green tonight during a heated game of Scrabble, "Mom you are going DOWN! I have SIBERIA!"
