Some thoughts...

This was sent to me today.
I am saving this for the time I really need it..COMFORTING WORDS..


A young and successful
executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.
As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to
the spot where the brick had been thrown.
The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car shouting, 'What was that all about and who are you? Just what the heck are you doing? That's a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?' The young boy was apologetic.
'Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't know what else to do,' He pleaded. 'I threw the brick because no one else would stop...' With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car. 'It's my brother, 'he said 'He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up.'
Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, 'Would you please help
me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me.'
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling
lump in his throat.. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh
scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay. 'Thank you and may God bless you,' the grateful child told the stranger. Too
shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home.
It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to
remind him of this message: 'Don't go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!' God whispers in our souls and
speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It's our choice to listen or not.

Thought for the Day:

If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning Face it, friend - He is crazy about you!
Send this to every 'beautiful person' you wish to bless.
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

I hate to love or I love to hate you…
Sometimes my heart is caught in the
And I am blue, without a clue
For your love exahusts me
Exploits me
Parches me and
Yet out of complete irrationality
I want more of it
So I love you, I chose to love..
I choose to love you and your anger
I choose to love you and your sorrow
I choose to love you and your issues

Goals and such

Back after a hiatus.
Yes, things have been crazy busy for the past 3 months since Diwali. I had too much going on. All good things though; dance, music, pageant prep, New year's party prep and planning; all of that peppered with work and more work.
However, for some strange reason although the past two months have been really really busy, they have been slower than the past 3 years.
I always thought that when one is busy, one does not realize how time passes. However, I am opposite, time passes for me slower when I am not busy, when I procrastinate, when I am NOT working towards a goal.
The thing that has definitely changed in the past 3 months is the surety of a goal.
It has brought so much stability, direction and peace to everything I do.
It seems as though suddenly everything I have done, everything that has happened in the past years suddenly makes sense. ALL OF IT!!
I have a feeling that 2010 definitely has something really big, something really spectacular, something really phenomenal, something truly magical in store for me. And all I have to do is keep working towards it!
And I am going to keep working towards that!
NOW, back to work :)
