"When you're famous you kind of run into human nature in a raw kind of way. It stirs up envy, fame does. People you run into feel that, well, who does she think she is, Marilyn Monroe? They feel fame gives them some kind of privilege to walk up to you and say anything to you, of any kind of nature — and it won't hurt your feelings — like it's happening to your clothes not you."  - Marilyn Monroe by MarySeh

I am hurting. I don't feel capable of putting on a smile or getting my life together in time to show up at Hope to focus on the lost. So I considered not going. Then Holy Spirit reminded me of the dream. I must go in my broken, real state. Even if it feels like there's not room for me to be as needy as an outreach. I must try to do church His way. And trust Him with the outcome. 4.14.13 by Vickers1973

LOL. I love this pin!!! I like how it brings humor into a situation that also shows that Daryll has grown. People are a product of how they were raised, so I can see how the brothers would both label Asians as "Chinese" out of ignorance. But I like how the show allows Daryll to evolve. It makes me love his character even more. by edna

I like to use problem solving journals with my kiddos. This is a journal that they use only for problem solving. I use a small 8 x 7 journal with blank pages that I order through our district print shop. I like this size because it gives kids a good amount of space to “show their work” for each problem. They do one problem per page and I find this helps them focus on the problem and to do their work in a neater, more organized way that is easy to read and understand. by rosebud2

So my best friend sent me this earlier. She never does deep emotional announcements or signs of affection. I was quite touched with the words, and then she told me it was because she could share her toilet humour with me. "True love is not having to hold your farts in anymore." by james

Great little snowmen my mom has been making for a few years now. All she does is go to a hardware store, buy some stair railing banisters, cut them in half and paint them white {to resemble snowpeople} and then dresses them up like little snowpeople. This is the husband and wife of a family of 5 she made for great family friends of ours -- they're a HUGE hit at our church fair every year. The one's for family friends are always a little more by sportsyyy2

almost-thrown-in-the-garbage shutters into a beautiful way to showcase family photos.

Scrambled eggs when camping...  Use a zip lock bag to mix up all the stuff, then there is no mess! You can also cook in the bag. Just drop it into a pot of boiling water on the fire. It Works, I have done this! A great way to personalize individual breakfasts. by ursula

OK... sprayed some no-stick spray on the baking pan you see in the picture. Browned a pound of ground beef with 1/2 diced onion and some chopped green onions. Drained it. Added about a cup of water and a packet of Taco Bell taco seasoning mix. Got a 27 oz can of "El Mexicano Chili for Rellenos" and drained them, rinsed them, pulled them into small strips with my fingers. (Fresh Poblano peppers would probably make this even better). Combined 4 eggs, 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, salt, pepper, fat-free milk (would have used whole milk but we had fat-free milk on hand) in a separate dish and whisked that all together. Added a small can of green chilis to that flour/milk mix along with another 1/2 diced raw onion and a little more chopped up raw green onion. Put a layer of chilis on the bottom of the baking pan shown in the picture. Ladel some of the egg/milk/onions mixture on top. Add a layer of shredded cheddar cheese and "mexican blend shredded cheese". Now add another layer of the chilis... another layer of egg/milk/onions stuff, another layer of shredded cheeses. I made a total of 3 layers like this. Baked at 350 for about 45 minutes, then added a small can of sliced black olives and put it on a high broil for 4-5 minutes. Let it sit 20 minutes or so and serve it up. We topped it with sour cream and some homemade poblano/jalapeno hot sauce I'd made last weekend.  Oh yeah... of course I spooned in some of the seasoned/browned ground beef on each of the 3 layers, too... heh heh... kind of an important part of the recipe.  One other thing...  I also tore up two large flour tortillas into bite-sized pieces and added those in to the dish as I was building up the layers. by dollie

I have been hurt most of my life by people I thought loved and cared about me.  It hurts even more when they refuse to admit their wrong and try to make things right. It took me long enough to realize that they meant more to me than I did to them. It may take me time to heal but I will get passed it all because my life and my happiness does mean something to me. Just one day at a time. by gfb
