All you Need is Love
At an airport I overheard a father and daughter in their last moments together. They had announced her plane’s departure and standing near the door, he said to his daughter, “I love you, I wish you enough.”She said, “Daddy, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Daddy.” They kissed good-bye and she left.He walked over toward the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?” “Yes, I have,” I replied. Saying that brought back memories I had of expressing my love and appreciation for all my Dad had done for me. Recognizing that his days were limited, I took the time to tell him face to face how much he meant to me. So I knew what this man was experiencing. “Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?” I asked. “I am old and she lives much too far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is, her next trip back will be for my funeral, ” he said. “When you were saying good-bye I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough.’ May I ask what that means?” He began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.” He paused for a moment and looking up as if trying to remember it in detail, he smiled even more. “When we said ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with enough good things to sustain them,” he continued and then turning toward me he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory. “I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Good-bye.” He then began to sob and walked away. Author Unknown
It is so hard to sit across from you (especially when you're on Skype & so far away) & not be able to reach out & take you in my arms! It always makes everything better when I can hold you close & when we go long periods without holding each other, it's even harder!! I Love YOU & you know there's no love like ours! I Miss YOU Baby!!!! Omigosh I Do!! We need to run away!!!!!!!***
Do I look weak to you, fragile and broken? I'm the strongest person you will ever meet. You all would break if you went through what I did day in and day out. None of you have what it takes to survive a battle against yourself, against those who you loved. If you walked in my shoes, you'd scoff at the thought of this girl being anything close to fragile.
This is SO me! I never knew there were other freaks out there too!
Put one dollar in the jar everytime you work out. When you reach a goal, treat yourself with a new outfit! LOVE THIS IDEA!! =) (incentive) Hmm..maybe I should try this too..
A 50's housewife themed bridal shower, are you kidding me! If I were having 2, this is what it would have been!
Super cute dress with nude shoes. I should have a board called "If I were 18 again." This would be on it!
shoes and such

I have a few mason jars that were too nice to pitch... I think frosting my monogram would be cool.
true friends :) For all my friends who live far away from me. I miss each and everyone of you!!
Elizabeth Smart speaks on human trafficking -CSMonitor.com "I thought, 'Oh, my gosh, I'm that chewed up piece of gum, nobody re-chews a piece of gum, you throw it away.' And that's how easy it is to feel like you know longer have worth, you know longer have value" "Why would it even be worth screaming out? Why would it even make a difference if you are rescued? Your life still has no value." Smart says children should be educated that "you will always have value and nothing can change that."
You spend way too much time here. Close your browser, step away from the keyboard and go hang out with someone or something real...Ok I

This is true. It's funny to think he would probably do this, but what if John just gave him an agonizing, dead look and turned slowly and walked away. That would kill me. Wonder how Sherlock would take it.<--I think it would kill me to watch it. <-- Yep. I want him to be cold. I want John Watson's heart to have been burned, so that he no longer cares about Sherlock. I want John to become the Sherlock, and Sherlock have to win his trust back by proving he is his friend.<<-- WHY? WHY? WHY? WHYYY?

rustic arch designed by Petal Pushers:It's a far reach, but since you are incorporating burlap throughout the tables, I didn't want to skip throwing this idea out there.
every time I have visited a place such as this, it has stuck with me. no matter how far away I go, there will always be something about the

Vegetable garden with lattice...wish I would have thought of these for my tomatoes that were out of control last year!

are you kidding - I would have loved a hide-away bed like this when I was a kid.
I don't have an amazing figure or a flat stomach. I'm far from being considered a model, but I'm me. I eat food. I have curves. I have more fat than I should. I have scars because I have a history. Some people love me, some like me, some hate me. I have done good; I have done bad. I love my pj's and I go without makeup and sometimes don't get my hair done. I'm random and crazy. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. I am who I am, you can love me or not...
I should have this since I work at Seed Growers...Carrie can you make me this?
I have cats... and this would STILL scare me. "Why are you all at the top of the stairs? Why are you looking at me???"
Special education teachers, as well as regular education teachers, can have quite the caseload of special education students. Hopefully, my IEP Meetings Binder will take away some of the stress for planning an upcoming IEP meeting for you as it has for me! I use this product at the beginning of every year and can say I have successfully stayed organized and on top of all of my IEP meetings!
Dry Creek Bed for Drainage. I have a gutter that comes out SO far that you have to step over it on the sidewalk. I might morph this idea....
things that make you go hmmm
Frame your wedding dress! I think it would give me butterflies every time I walked in the closet! Plus what else are you going to do with
The Child Piloted Tumbler. Got this for LE this summer. It inflated well and stayed inflated, but she just doesn't like it very much. The color and the many creases in the honeycomb attract a LOT of bugs. Also rainwater does not come out. But honestly, I think if she were a different kid or had an older sibling to roll her around, it would have been more fun.
Yes I have read all 19 books in the New Jedi Order series, and you should too!!!

"I wish to notify you all that, as my brother was being ungentlemanly and mean earlier today, I calmly told him, "You'd better hope you find a girl who's not into fandom, because if she even begins to compare you to Tom Hiddleston... you're out." He gaped at me for the longest time before slowly saying, "Wow... That's... That hurts." He walked away contemplating his life. Sucess."<---that
