jumping on the bandwagon...

i finally got around to reading:

and just as i expected, it's fabulous!

up next, i'm trying to decide between: the hunger games and the girl with the dragon tattoo trilogies. can anyone offer any advice? cause the last thing i want to get invested in is another series that builds up to a huge let down...*a hem* twilight. but seriously kids, which series is worth reading first?

sunday's spiritual thought...

No pessimist ever discovered
the secret of the stars,
or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway to the human spirit.
-Helen Keller

sunday's spiritual thought...

Have a heart that never hardens,
a temper that never tires,
a touch that never hurts.

you know that annoying girl from the office?

well she wrote a book...and it's fantastic!

it's sassy and wonderful, especially if you're a 20/30-something single girl.

next up: bossypants, by the lovely and talented tina fey.

special holiday spiritual thought...

Take the first step in faith.
You don't have to see the whole staircase,
just take the first step.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

sunday's spiritual thought...

Time is free, but it’s priceless.
You can’t own it, but you can use it.
You can’t keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.

-Harvey MacKay

oh right, i have a blog...

i guess my life just hasn't been that interesting lately...

here's to a happy new year full of more frequent blogging!

Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright New Year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!
- William Arthur Ward
