Things I Believe ~ by Anon

I Believe…
Just because two people argue,
Doesn’t mean they don’t love each other.
And just because they don’t argue,
Doesn’t mean they do love each other.

I Believe…
We don’t have to change friends if
We understand friends change.

I Believe….
No matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt
You every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe…
True friendship continues to grow, even over
The longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I Believe…
You can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

I Believe…
it’s taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.

I Believe…
You should always leave loved ones with
Loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe…
You can keep going long after you think you can’t.

I Believe…
We are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I Believe…
Either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe…
Heroes are the people who do what has to be done
When it needs to be done, regardless of consequences.

I Believe…
Money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I Believe…
My best friend and I can do anything or nothing
And have the best time.

I Believe…
Sometimes the people you expect to kick you
When you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe…
Sometimes when I’m angry, I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe…
Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had And what you’ve e learned from them, and less to do With how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I Believe…
It isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others;
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself..

I Believe…
Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, But we are responsible for whom we become.

I Believe…
You shouldn’t be so eager to find
Out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I Believe…
Two people can look at the exact same
Thing and see something totally different..

I Believe…
Your life can be changed in a matter of
Hours by people who don’t even know you.

I Believe…
Even when you think you have no more to give, when
A friend cries out to you – you will find the strength to help.

I Believe…
Credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe…
The people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

Only One Pound

I am 5 pounds away from my goal.  My friend gave me this poem.  I love it.  I hope you all have a great weekend.

Hello, do you know me?
If you don’t, you should.
I’m a pound of fat,
And I’m the happiest pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
Want to know why?

It’s because no one ever wants to lose me.
I’m only one pound, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose three pounds,
five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.

So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, ever so slyly,
so that you never seem to notice it.
That is, until I’ve grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.

Yes, it’s fun being only one pound of fat, left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying,
“Oh, I only lost one pound,” (as if that were such a terrible thing).
For you see, if you do this,
you’ll encourage others to keep me around because they’ll think I’m not worth losing.

And, I love being around you –
your arms, your legs,
your chin, your hips and every part of you.
Happy Days!
After all, I’m
only one pound of fat!

WOW…It is my Blogoversary


I can’t believe that it has been a year since I started writing a blog.  Here is a link to my very first post.  It wasn’t my intention to write regularly.  Yet here I am 175 posts later and just a few comments away from 1,000. I thought about what I would say in this post all day.  I really could only think of 2 things that I wanted to make sure that you all know.

1)  I just love you all to pieces.  You all have a special place in my heart.  I know it is crazy but I worry about you if you don’t post when you normally do.  I pray for you and your families daily. 

2) Thank you for blogging, for making me laugh, cry, and for making me think harder, for challenging me.  

 This year has brought some great changes and challenges in my life.  I listed my top 8 in 2008 here.  I look forward to this next year!  It is going to be a blast!

What’s on Your Mind ’09 – Is it Ever Wrong to Do the Right Thing?

This weeks topic, Is it Ever Wrong to Do the Right Thing?, is a stumper for me.  My personal feelings are if it is the right thing to do then how can it be wrong?  I can think of a couple instances of where it may be right to do the wrong thing.  

In a world where the rules are constantly changing, I feel blessed to have a list of  rules.  I have always enjoyed the saying that the BIBLE is the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.  I try to do the right things in the eyes of my Heavenly Father.

I am really interested in your answers.  Please help a girl out.  Is Right Right and Wrong Wrong. Is it Ever Wrong to Do the Right Thing?
