Thursdays Tragedies:
I left work last night a little after 5 pm. We had had an emergancy also, a Jack Russel Terrier KAYNA, had been hit by a car. A good Samaritan brought him in. So I had stayed to see how he did. He was still a little "shocky"when I left, but he pulled through ok, and went home this AM with his family.The other tragedy didn't turn out so well:

I take 35-E North home from my hospital/clinic on Cty. Rd 42 and when I neared the Cedar exit I had to swerve onto the shoulder to avoid the mini-van in front of me. As I looked around to see what was causeing the sudden stop, I saw it.
The car; front end crushed on the side of the road, the motorcycle still under its front end. And the State Troopers lifting a body wrapped in a white sheet off the south bound side of the freeway. My heart stopped. I had been talking to my mom (on my hands free.) (I will ONLY use my hands free from now on! I urge you ALL to do the same! If you don't have one GET ONE!) I gasped and started praying a loud. She asked what had happend and I told her. She said, "Oh my." & that she had seen it on the news. She then asked me if I was ok. I said yes, then.
But I am clearly not. On my way into work I drove in the opposite lane. Car oil, tire skid marks and what I can only guess was blood on parts of the road. I gasped again. It has rocked me to my core. I can't stop thinking about that man. His family. His friends, and co-workers. It's so HORRIBLE, I can hardly believe it!

I ask you to pray for these people! And my friends; let's keep our hands on the wheel and not on our IPOD's/car stereos/cell phones!!!! (Not that I am ASSUMING you are!)I caused on accident myself in 2002, because of my cd player. Praise the Lord it wasn't a serious accident, but that's beside the point! Let's BE CAREFUL! START WATCHING OUT FOR MOTORCYCLES!

P.S. If you can please join Aaron & I tonight on University Ave. on the way from St. Paul to Mlps.!! There will be "Back-To-The-50's" cars cruising the street. It should be fun! Car scoping and people watching! And it's FREE!!!
I hope to see you ALL! God bless you !
I love ya SO MUCH!

Looking through LeRoy's list of friends blogs I was reminded that Mary Knox has a xanga. So I double clicked on it, and as I read I realized how ungratful I have been the last two weeks. Mary is a really good example of a heart that is struggling and yet continues to seek the Lord. I have been reading Psalms and Proverbs seeking wisdom and peace but I find in my heart I have still been struggling.
As most of you know Aaron and I have been feeling the Lord leading us towards getting married this Fall. There have been "forces" whom are cautioning us about doing this. Mostly those who think we are rushing to the "event" not really considering what comes after. Which is not true. Which is neither here nor there. Because I have been bitter and angry and frustrated and that isn't WHERE MY HEART should be. Because no matter what Aaron and I WILL get married, and we do LOVE each other and we ARE preparing for our marriage!! So in the end I guess what I do know we need prayer. Lots of it!

Happy Birthday to ME, Happy Birthday to Me!
Happy Birthday LEXI! Happy Birthday to Me!!

Twenty-Three! My co-worker Becky, told me today that she once heard that 23 was the prime of a womens life. Huh. Maybe. I kinda hope every year will be the "prime year of my life"! I plan on having an understated birthday today!I'm just hanging out with my Mom, eating our favorite summer salad (chicken pasta and strawberries.)We might go see a movie.I wanted to make sure that it was just chill.
Aaron and I will celebrate just the two of us tomorrow.
My sister Liz sent me a birthday package, a card and a t-shirt that is really cute! I have also gotten 3 text message-Happy Birthday's from; Merri (Aaron's sister), my Siser Katie and my Siser Liz.(Those sisers' are on purpose) My mom also called me on her lunch break and sang. It's our tradition that we call the mornign of that family members birthday and sing to them. We sometimes try and do it in the wee hours of the morning so that it is one of the first things that person hears. I love birthday/family traditions! I hope everyone is having a good Thursday! One more day until the weekend! TTFN! <><

Quandries of the male mind....
I think once a week or maybe twice a month or just as they come up you guys can ask questions and I will do my best(and prayerfully) will answer. We can seek out other ladies opinions. Maybe we'll have young ladies also asking questions, (about guys).
So my friends:

Ask away!
