Reflections

I heard the song "Good In Goodbye" today for the first time and it made me stop and listen, and then think. I thought back to past relationships, ones that I thought were going to last much longer, if not forever. Once I met Glenn, I understood why things hadn't worked out before. That doesn't mean it didn't hurt when it happened, that I didn't hang on as hard as I could to "what could've been," but I can see now why things happened the way they did.

As bad as it was, as bad as it hurt
I thank God I didn’t get what I thought that I deserved
Sometimes life leads you down a different road
When you’re holding on to someone that you gotta let go
Someday you’ll see the reason why
Sometimes, yeah sometimes, there’s good in goodbye

I don't regret any of those relationships: they made me who I am today and I appreciate what I have all the more because of each of them and their respective break ups. I'm glad that, for the most part, I can still count them as friends and that, often-times, I gained friends that I still care about very much. However, I know I'm where I'm supposed to be.

I don’t regret it
The time we had together
I won’t forget it
But we both ended up where we belong
I guess goodbye made us strong
And yeah I’m happy
I found somebody too who makes me happy

I'm grateful that I have what I have: a husband that loves and cares for me, who supports me, who is there when I need him, even if he can't physically be there all the time. I'm grateful for my beautiful baby boy who teaches me so much and loves me unconditionally. I'm grateful that, even when I spend a day feeling like I was in the crappy mom department, that he looks at me, smiles, and makes me feel like maybe, just maybe, I'm not such a failure and I did alright after all. I'm grateful for this and so much more.

I know my path is most definitely different from what I had planned (I mean, really, I live in Utah ya'll!), but I'm so grateful it is.

Silliness

In the 1400's a law was set forth that a man was not allowed to beat his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have "the rule of thumb"

Many years ago in Scotland, a new game was invented. It was ruled "Gentlemen Only...Ladies Forbidden"...and thus the word GOLF entered into the English language.

The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV were Fred and Wilma Flintstone.

Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than the US Treasury.

Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better.

Coca-Cola was originally green.

It is impossible to lick your elbow.

The State with the highest percentage of people who walk to work: Alaska

The percentage of Africa that is wilderness: 28% (now get this...)

The percentage of North America that is wilderness: 38%

The cost of raising a medium-size dog to the age of eleven: $6,400

The average number of people airborne over the US any given hour: 61,000

Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.

The first novel ever written on a typewriter: Tom Sawyer.

The San Francisco Cable cars are the only mobile National Monuments.

Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history;
Spades - King David

If a statue in the park of a! person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air the person died as a result of wounds received in battle. If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.

In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase......... "goodnight, sleep tight."

It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his s! on-in-la w with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a hone y beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month . which we know today as the honeymoon.

In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts... So in old England , when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them "Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down."

It's where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's"

Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. "Wet your whistle" is the phrase inspired by this practice.

Friends Only



I have officially decided to make my journal completely Friends Only. I've noticed that most all of my entries lately are friends only anyhow so it just makes more sense this way. If you would like to be added, please comment here and let me know why you want to be friends. I'm not too picky, but I'd like to knows at least a few things about the person I'm friending. I have a few rules too:
1. No swearing
2. No disrespect (you don't have to agree with me, but don't make a huge fuss/riot over what I say either).
3. Spell properly (it doesn't have to be correct spelling, just don't act all cool with the stupid stuff).

Other than that, I'm pretty chill. Hope to hear from you guys. *grin*
