Huh?

Why does the old saying "nice guys finish last" seem to strike a nerve with me? I have thought about this in the past and never seem to think of a good reason. I try to be the best person I can be everyday, but I deal with anxiety and shyness that may make me look or act aloof, I try not to when I think about it but circumstances change quickly and I can't be on guard all the time. My life (like many others) has had its deal of trying and happy times, and reading about all that is going on with others on this site, life changes in an instant. When I meet people, I just want to be known as a nice guy, I still use my please and thank yous as often as the situation calls, and I try to instill that quality in my boys. I know my shyness has a lot to do with how people think of me, since that is the first impression of me people get, it takes a lot to loosen me up and when I haven't seen a friend in a long time that shell just covers me back up and it takes just as long for me to loosen...

Hi Mom

Hi mom, I hope you are okay. Today was the day you were called away 12 years ago. I miss you as much now as I did then, maybe more. Mom, I felt I had to write to you in my blog especially today of all days.

I let you down, I know that. At least that is the way I feel, especially at the end, but I love you with all my heart. I always have and always will. I hope you know that and I hope you forgive me. I was never a very good daughter to you, not as good as I should have been. Not as good a daughter as you were a mom to me. I can hardly mention your name without bursting into tears.

I always had a sense even when I was very young that I was going to lose you someday and I knew that it was going to be difficult to let you go. I don't think I have ever or will ever let you go. I need you, mom.

When I was little all I can remember of you is that you were ALWAYS with me. When I was sick, you were tireless and you never thought of how tired you might...

A New Shepherd For Baby Jesus

[B]I thought this was very beautiful. I also posted this in Home and Family on the boards but I wanted to be sure that it might be seen. Animals have the most keen sense about life. Some may say the pup just wanted someplace comfy to lay, I prefer to think it is more than that. [/B]
[B]A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. [/B]

[B]During the night the folks came across this scene. [/B]

[B]An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night. [/B]

[B]We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus' lap from time to time.[/B]

[B][COLOR=red]This is too sweet...

At least one good Christmas in the 80s....

My family is a bit weird with Christmas.. My little sister is a bit indifferent, and my Mom, Dad, and little Brother...although EXTREMELY religious (Dad is an Education Minister and Brother is a Youth Minsiter)......don't share the feelings i have for Christmas. They love and respect it from the Biblical sense only and don't like anything else past that point...in fact they don't even put a tree up anymore - more less decorate. The don't like me buying them presents ...etc....get the idea?
As kids - we did have a small tree and we did get a few things though... although my dad had a weird way of doing it. He preferred that the gifts were needed things and as we got older - we had to pay for half of what we wanted so we "learned responsibility and that money does not grow on trees...blah blah blah...". Yes i said we paid for half of many of our gifts....so we kinda knew what we were getting...
Needless to say my kids are a bit spoiled at Christmas - as is my wife...and...

Killing Christmas

Posted 09-22-2010 at 09:04 PM by caninemom3

I guess I am just an idealistic sap. Each year as Christmas approaches I try to spread the Christmas spirit to everyone around me. I don't do this to be "pushy" or to try and push my faith or anything like that. I do it because it is the one time of the year I feel is truly different and I really do feel the hearts of humans tend to open a bit more at Christmas time to each other. I FEEL Christmas in my very soul and I feel I have to try and share its warmth with everyone.

I always say "Merry CHRISTmas" because for me CHRISTmas is about Christ and family and I do not just mean my family of origin because most of them are gone. I mean the family of mankind. I am usually quite bubbly and overly friendly when I am doing this and get more than a few odd looks from people. That is nothing new. I have been an oddball all my life and if being exuberant in my celebration of Christmas classifies me as an oddball then so be it !!

I somehow allow myself...
