I'm happy for all my friends who have either fallen in love and gotten engaged or are just happy with thier boyfriend or fiancé. I am truly happy for them. I love to see the smiles on thier face when they think about thier boyfriend/fiancé. I like listening to them talk about them. It's really nice to see them all so happy.
Then sometimes I wonder when I'm going to find the right guy or when the right guy is going to find me.
Then I also feel kind of lonely cause I feel like I've become second rate to some because thier life is only able to hold so much. Each day has only 24 hours in it and a lot of it is consumed with work and now the remaining time is spent with boyfriends.
I'm not sure if there is a place for me in this new era.
Memorial Day was over now,
All had left and I was alone,
I began to read the names and dates
Chiseled there on every stone.
The dates which showed whether it was Mom or Dad or daughter or baby son,
The dates were different but the amount
The same, there were two on every one,
It was then I noticed something,
It was but a simple line:
It was the dash between the dates Placed there, it stood for time.
All at once it dawned on me
How important that little line.
The dates placed there belonged to God,
But that line is yours and mine.
It’s God who gives this precious life
And God who takes away;
But that line between He gives to us
To do with what we may.
We know God’s written the first date down
Of each and every one,
And we know those hands will write again,
For the last date has to come.
We know He’ll write the last date down,
And soon, we know, for some.
But upon the line between my dates
I hope He’ll write “well done.”

The first FIVE people...
...to leave a comment on this blog will receive something made by me. However there are some limitations:
1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make. I'll do my best, but there's no accounting for my crazy taste.
2. What I create will be just for you, unless you specify that you want something for a spouse or child in your post.
3. It will be done within a year (might take a while).
4. You have no clue what it is going to be and I'm not going to give you any hints.
5. I reserve the right to do something really crazy or fun.
Here's the catch: if you choose to do this, you must post this on your blog and be ready to make something for five people too. This will be fun! When you receive the fabulous item I make you, you must post a picture of it on your blog.
Let the challenge begin!
