Different Type of Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Help us remember that that the jerk who cut us off traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious moments with her children.

Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who
can't make change correctly is a worried 19-y ear-old college student balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester.

Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same
spot every day (who really ought to get a job!) is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.

Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slowly through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this moment,
knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this will
be the last year that they go shopping together.

Heavenly Father, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear.

Open our hearts not to just those who are close to us, but to all humanity.
Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive, show patience, empathy and love.



MY weekend

*Had lots of fun with avhi and pamlin at Finding Nemo

*followed by waiting in line for Harry Potter pictures here they go from end to beginning (well cept my face-painting, that's throughout). I hope that link works.
We also met a love eh lee girl missjanettewith very kewl hair ribbons that teaches students with different learning processes (not sure the best way to put that).
And can't forget that I got a book. BONUS: it was signed by the editor since he happened to be at that location. I had him sign it to my lil sister Megan.

*ended with my nightly phone call - though much shorter than usual due to lateness.

Saturday was spent mainly sending out resumes, bleh - but it's gotta be done
*had my nightly phone call *YAY*

Today went to breakfast with the wonderful aligator13 and her mother. We had omlettes that were way way too big and I ate more than I was hungry for b/c I didn't even notice until my tummy was saying "no more!".
I only wish she had more time to hang out.

and then to the Chocolate Exhibit with melebeth andpamlin
-though they ran out of the free chocolate at the gift shop at the end :(
just means we shall have to come back and go straight to the shop next time!

we of course bought chocolate instead, I mean come on, 3 girls, an exhibit focused on chocolate, of course. It was gooood.
my only complaint is that I have now come home with 2 chocolate bars. what's a girl to do?

this was followed by a rainy but fin craft fair minus the melebeth.
2 purchases, a shiny thing and yummy crepe (apple with butterscotch)

pictures here supposing, again, the link works.

I am now utterly full for the rest of the week, though my stomach will probably change it's mind tomorrow.


I shall now do some interview questions, I am determined!
