A beautiful thing.

So many things have the theme of love. Love. Love. Love. Love.

Why so pervasive in our culture? Why the topic of so many movies, books, discussions, classes, studies, speeches, why?

I am in love. Thank you Adrian T. for giving me love.

But can it all end so quickly? How does love that seems so real, so deep fade so fast? Or does it take time to fade?

How can divorce be so common and yet people still get married so often? How can something so beautiful come from two people - a child - a life - a new perspective on the world - and yet be torn apart by two people and a poor choice?

There are so many questions we'll never know the answers to. Or do we? I don't. Yet. But is it best left unknown? Do we keep trying to love? Is it worth it?

The things you remember

I miss my mom. Not in a "i'm little and lonely kind of way" or a "I'm young and immature, need my mother kind of way" but in a grown-up mature, best friend kind of way.
I miss my mom.
We are so close, and I don't get to see her enough now that I'm 13 hours across the country away from her.
I know she's needed me this weekend. And I feel so helpless - a phone call away, but that seems so far.

It's funny the things you remember about your childhood, about your mother; and what sparks those memories to re-appear in your mind? The strangest things!

I got out of the shower tonight and remember how my mom used to make sure I got all the soap out of my hair when I was little. I got sunburned today and remembered how mom used to lather me up from head to toe with 3 inches thick of sunscreen!

Amazing. How serious.

College basketball isn't everything.
But it's ok. We can all still be friends! Don't worry about it. I think it's funny how upset folks get about basketball but let's keep it real - there are more important things that matter much more in life!

Keep your priorities straight.

Though I am a die-hard UNC fan,

life is more than winning or losing sports. Move on. Life goes on. God bless ya'll! Love you! Keep on keepin on. Keep your chin up! Head up! Smile on your face!
