Gotta Love The Truth...Sometimes

I got some really nice e mails today. I did. I got a really funny message from amy of the funny names, where she thought it was private what she wrote to me on facebook but it wasn't and that was funny. I got this awesome list from Christina, which I think I might post at the end here cause I love it, it's from Oprah. I got some awesome music suggestions from Wep and she sent me a song. I got a horoscope reading from an amazing woman I know. I got a really funny fairytale from Sue. It was a nice e mail day. It really was. So then I'm sitting here at my computer, innocently reading through some work I did today and my little blackberry starts blinking to alert me of an email. I look and it's a facebook message.

So when you get a message, through Facebook no less, you might think it's going to be nice. You see G.C. sent you a message through Facebook come up on your e mail. Oh good I think to myself. I haven't heard from him in a while. He's always so funny. Little stories about his cute kids with their light sabers and tales of coaching hockey. This time there is no long e mail of what he and his family are doing. There are no yoga questions, nope, this is what it says, "Change your blog layout now... I chunked in my mouth with the new offense... g" Huh, none taken. Really, I appreciate it. I have said before how I suck at this. I know nothing of computers except how to download music, put my pictures on there and generally play. I don't know how to make words on this blog different size or colors. I'm sure it's simple. I need a class. Hey Sarah, you gonna teach that? Answer me.

So, I'm going to change it, cause I don't want greg to be sick. Poor little angel.

Christina's NICE e mail- The person who sent it said they had originally ripped it out of a Oprah magazine so I do not know who the original author is, maybe Oprah? Whoever it is, I love it.

what you put out comes back all the time, no matter what.
*you define your own life. don’t let other people write your script.
*whatever someone did to you in the past has no power over the present. only you give it power.
*when people show you who they are, believe them the first time.
*worrying is wasted time. use the same energy for doing something about whatever worries you.
*what you believe has more power than what you dream or wish or hope for. you become what you believe.
*if the only prayer you ever say is thank you, that will be enough.
*the happiness you feel is in direct proportion to the love you give.
*failure is a signpost to turn you in another direction.
*if you make the choice that goes against what everyone else thinks, the world will not fall apart.
*trust your instincts. intuition doesn’t lie.
*love yourself and then learn to extend that love to others in every encounter.
*let passion drive your profession.
*find a way to get paid for doing what you love. then every paycheck is a bonus.
*love doesn’t hurt. it feels really good.
*every day brings a chance to start over.
*being a mother is the hardest job on earth. women everywhere must declare it so.
*doubt means don’t. don’t move. don’t answer. don’t rush forward.
*when you don’t know what to do, get still. the answer will come.
*“trouble don’t last” (negro spiritual)

I got an email on FB today too. It was a former coworker telling me he had to take a poo. Sheesh, they need better bouncers on the site.

It was a pleasure chatting on email with you :)

What!?!?!? I don't even know what to say to that. How could a layout so upset someone? Man, that's harsh.

I enjoy your new layout! But, I do miss the pix of the kiddos. So sweet.

Love the quotes. And as far as the new layout goes, it's fun! (But I did like the day you experimented with a variety of layouts. Visiting the blog was "like a box of chocolates, you never knew what it would be." )

Of course you could always use my standard committee requirement: "If you have a suggestion, give how and when you, yourself, will implement it." :)

Oh dear...that guy's facebook rudeness makes my head hurt. I love your layout, for what it's worth. And I've missed you over the past few days...will e-mail you later...

Christy said...

I'm with Sue...what?! I don't even know what to say about that...your layout was/is fine! SIGH

On a more positive note, I love that list-- copied & pasted it into my 'pages'...I might have to steal that for my own blog post. :)

i love the list, but i am, after all, a list lover.
sometime i forget the important yet basic things this list points out.
