Here's to all the ladies...

By the time the Lord made woman,
He was into his sixth day of working overtime..
An angel appeared and said,
"Why are you spending so much time on this one?"
And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,
have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable
and able to run on diet coke and leftovers,
have a lap that can hold four children at one time,
have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart
-and she will do everything
with only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements.
"Only two hands!? No way!
And that's just on the standard model?
That's too much work for one day.
Wait until tomorrow to finish."

But I won't," the Lord protested.
"I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart.
She already heals herself when she is sick
AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord."

"She is soft," the Lord agreed,
"but I have also made her tough.
You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied,
"Not only will she be able to think,
she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel then noticed something,
and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.
I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak,"
the Lord corrected,
"that's a tear!"
"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy,
her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love,
her loneliness, her grief and her pride."
The angel was impressed.
"You are a genius, Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing."

And she is!
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness,
love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
PLEASE pass this along to all your women friends and relatives
to remind them just how amazing they are

friends only

Hey guys... I hate to do this, but from now on my journal is gonna have to be friends only, and this is why...

The truth and nothing but the truth

Weds i got hired at this store called Kid 2 Kid. So i called home thinking that everyone would be real pleased. Robert wasn't. WE have been trying to sell the store for a few weeks now, because rent is more then we can afford. So i figured that once we sold the store, i would move in with shannon, and get a real job since they wouldn't need me anymore. well, i got hired at kid 2 kid, and robert was bitching at me about responsibility, and how they need me at the water store and all that. and i realized that i was a doormat. now i have always known that, but it hit me really hard, and i got angry. i have been forced into a life where i have to do things solely for others. i haven't done anything for myself in longer then i can remember. so i decided that i would leave home. so i called and left a message at the water store, once i got to shannon's, and said that i was going on vacay. so then all hell broke loose, and i ended up staying with nicole on weds night, and i stayed with her during the day on thursday, and she dropped me off with shannon last night. i went shopping yesterday to get things like a toothbrush, and underwear, because i left with nothing. so now i live at shannon's. yesterday was the best i have felt in a really long time. i was so happy last night. shannon and i went grocery shopping after he got off of work. i start my new job on monday, but i have to go in sun to fill out papers, and get to know my way around. so things are good. i mean, i kinda miss my mom, and i feel bad that i hurt her, but i had to do it. i need to start living for me, not someone else. anyway, this will be my last public post. after this, it will be friend's only. well, i have to go. i'm hungry, and freezing. peaceout! love, sara

Things are okay... here's what went down. In the middle of my 7th grade year, my uncle came and took me away from my family. Then, he tried to do it again the summer before 10th grade. Well, he showed up yesterday at my water store, and shocked the shit out of me. Shannon was there to protect me, but it still scared me half to death. I was so afraid that he was gonna try and take me away again. I mean, I know that as an adult, I have a choice in the matter, but he is a lot bigger than I am. So I was really really scared. He said that he was going to come back today, so I wasn't left alone, just in case. He didn't come back. I don't know, I am just afraid that he'll find me. I am happy here. I mean, I have Shannon, I might have a job, I'm moving out for the first time. I am happier here then I ever was in CA. I would be horribly sad if he took me there. Anyway, that's all, thanks for caring guys. And I am safe, and I don't think anything will happen to me. It just gave me a bit of a scare. Love, Sara

Hey! things are not so great. shit went down today, and all hell broke lose. if you know me well, you know my past, and how my past has a tendency to repeat it self. so it tried today, and someone who hasn't been a good force in my life came back for the first time in 4 years. i have only seen him twice since i moved out here, and both times he tried to take me away. thank god for shannon. i love him. well, i am okay, other than that. unhappy, but okay. peace out!

Things are okay. I have seen Star Wars, and Madagascar recently. Yesterday wasmy step dad's birthday. Why do people keep tagging me for stupid game things? I don't wanna play, sorry guys. I am tired, and a bit on the cranky side. I'm gonna go take a shower, but thought that I would drop a line. I am still living... unfortunately, and I am healthy, which could go both ways. Everything is fine on the love front, things were a little (only a little my love) on the rocky side, but everything is okay now. My family is okay, and I may get a job that pays 10 and hour. Awesome. Well, I am off to bed. Night!
