The Truth About Super Glue

Pet Peeve Vent

I am well known for having pet peeves and I had an encounter with one today. I have to be careful to not let little things determine my mind frame. But, I am allowed to vent about it for a minute LOL. I am just wondering why people that work in stores put price stickers in the most inconvenient places! I know, it sounds stupid, but Im serious! I bought some frames the other day and both of them had the sticker on the glass front of the frame. So after I got the frames home, I had to spend my precious time (LOL) fighting with that sticker and of course it doesnt just come off in one quick pull. But I have found a friend in my war against stickers - lighter fluid! If you put a few drops of it on the glass it steals the stickyness from the sticker and then it comes right off without leaving that nasty gluey like mess of a square. My brother first told me about this when I was complaining about that ugly glue square on the side of one of my large candles. (Again, why wouldnt they put the sticker on the bottom of the candle) Well, today I picked up a book and when I looked at the back of it - to read a preview of the book - what do you know - one of those evil stickers was in my way. I hate them! LOL And there was plenty of empty space on the back where it could have been placed, but it was inconsiderately placed right over the most important part of a book - the words!
OK, Im done venting now and I feel better already! Thanks for reading! :-)

I'm still here! LOL

Ive been missing for a while... Now its time to get back in the swing of things. I started back to work a week ago. I have been feeling pretty good, I just get sore as the day goes on, but that is to be expected after having back surgery! Getting used to getting up at 4:40am all over again has been hard on me too, but Im working on it. LOL I hope all is well with you all! Take care!

In His Hands

Lately I have wondered what life is all about
My past, present, future. I cant figure it out
Then suddenly it came to me
Only HE knows whats meant to be
During lifes highs and through the lows
HE will show me what I need to know
HIS love and protection are never far
Like that November day when I totaled my car
When that truck pulled into my path
HE was there - right in my lap
That day HE taught me a lot of lessons
All in a span of about 2 seconds
That vision of myself lying in a coffin
Made me start going to see my Dad more often
When my brother came around that curve and slammed on brakes
You should have seen the look on his face
He saw my car before he saw me
When our eyes met all I saw was relief
I went home from the hospital bruised and sore
But appreciated life more and more

I know that HE kept me safe from harm
And placed me back in my Mothers arms
Now when I lay down at night I cant wait
To thank God for keeping my family and friends safe

Thats just one of the moments in my life
That HE made sure I'd be alright
I dont understand whats meant to be
But I know HE always looks out for me
HE didnt keep me in that bad relationship any longer
Than what I needed to make myself stronger
Now I know I am truly blessed
Because I can recognize real happiness
If I hadnt went through any hardships
I couldnt appreciate how great my life is
To anybody that has played a part
I thank you from the bottom of my heart

Whatever life brings my way - I know that I am
Without a doubt - IN GODS HANDS

Always Remember...

We all have to go through what we have to go through in order to become the person we are meant to be. Good times, bad times.. they all make us. Never doubt that.
