Happy Thoughts:


From the hubby

It's been a while since I've done one of these, and I have tons of new followers so, for those of you who are new, every once in a while I like to post my hubby's poetry. He writes the most amazing poetry for me, and it really helps me through the hard times. So here is one of my favorites, he wrote this for me after we met for the third time. I flew to VA to see him and we had an extra amazing time, we cooked together, and it was the same visit that he proposed & we got married!. He even made it all scrapbook-like and special for me so I could put it in our book.

This is our special book by the way...

As you can see in less than a year it's already so full it can't even close!

and sorry for the horrible picture but here is the original of the poem that he sent me...

I love how he goes out of his way to make sure everything is special for me, he cut out labels, and painted the background, I couldn't ask for more. So here's the poem which he didn't title.

Dark red wine presses gently to her perfect parted lips
Prevading her body lascivious and lively she gets
Her lush sensuality drips, from every gentle curve, every graceful line

Her hands her body hot pleading for mine
And forgetful we are of the time
For we are caught in one another
Til burning fills the air and we laugh at each other

The hum of the fan the sweet smokey air pulls us
Unwanton from our ordeal
We turn impatient back to the preparation of our meal

Yet an intolerable excitement persists for nakedness yet to be revealed
Longing for each other's touch, each other's kiss
Desperate we feel

Fighting as we eat and imbibe more drink
"Flirting with the inevitable" we both think
We both know yet the pleasant ache persists
The anticipation heightening our bliss

Finally in privacy, and in love
It culminates, it's divine, it's making love

I Pledge

The Department of Transportation has asked American bloggers to spotlight the critical importance of staying sober behind the wheel this Independence Day. So I'm joining in the pledge to not drink and drive. I know what it's like to lose someone in an accident that involves drinking. When I was 18 my friend Ernie lost his life when he decided to drink and drive, and he couldn't control his truck. So please join me and take the pledge to not drink and drive!

God Bless America

Today I am thanking God for all that he has given me. Sometimes it takes a little reality check to stop and think about what we have in life. Last night we went to the grocery store because I didn't want anything we had in the house so I waited out in the car while hubby went inside really quick to grab a couple things, and I was just hanging out in the mini cooper listening to music when this sweet old lady wearing a "God Bless America" T-shirt knocked on my window. I rolled it down, and she said "Excuse me miss, but do you have two dollars so I could get myself something to eat?" I felt like the WORST person in the world but I had to tell her no because I don't carry cash only cards, I ALWAYS lose cash. Hubby was still in the store so I really didn't have anything to give her. Then my husband comes walking out a few minutes later and is about to get in the car when she comes back and asks him, so of course he gave it to her, and then I felt even worse like GEEZ she probably thinks I'm a BITCH sitting here in my little air conditioned car not wanting to hand over two dollars!

On the way home I was thinking it's only a couple blocks to the grocery store and I'm kinda glad to live close to a neighborhood like that so that I always have a reminder nearby to keep myself from forgetting how good my life is, and how priveleged I am to live where I do. So today I just want to be thankful for everything I have, and where I have been lucky enough to go in life. I hope this gives you a little encouragement to do the same, I think it's perfect for right before 4th of July too! We are celebrating really big this year!
