This is my 25th Christmas.  I got a giftcard to Target, OSU shirts, Old Navy clothes, a scarf, bath stuff, purse, a cd, and a few random things in my stocking.

I am having a bad day.  My brother and grandma left a day early because here in OHIO we are suppose to get 12 inches of snow tomorrow.  I miss my dad. I hate that people leave. I want to see my boyfriend. I just feel like everything in my life isnt going how I want it.  I dont want to eat dinner. I cant stop crying. I want everything that God has for me to just fall into my lap because I am tired, so tired of not getting anything I want in life :/  Im ready for something awesome to happen in my life.

On my knees

Im on my knees for those 20 babies that are up in heaven with Jesus.  My heart is still broken over the tragedy that happened in Newtown, CT.  I am praying for the families who lost loved one on Friday.  As a teacher, I know that I would have been like Victoria and had the gunman take my life over my students.  I would have protected me with my own life.  All I have to say is that I hope this really causes people to love more, to be more kind and to really get on their knees and start a relationship with God

25 Years of life on here

I woke up at 5:30 on my 25th birthday.....I didnt get anything subbing wise.  I got my birthday present from my mom in a Tinkerbell bag---a gift card to buy a pair of jeans, a necklace and then a shirt.  I ate granola, ran 2 miles, and took a shower. I am going to lunch with my mom and then tonight I will get to see CJ :)  Who knows what else I will do on my birthday.  I cant believe I have been alive for a quarter of a century!! EEK!

Love you all :)

Thunderstorms in December?

My Thanksgiving was rough. I missed my dad. I cried a ton that week :/  I totally have messed up my emotions and everything is totally out of whack :/

Subbing is going well. Paying off my debt is something I am really working on right now.  Cj and I are amazing.  My ministry I work with is great. I love my friends. I am really working on myself right now. I need to work on seeing myself as beautiful, that I am here to love others and not be such a debbie downer. I need to SEE the plan God has for me. I cant dwell on my negative parts of my life.  Two days till my 25th birthday. I really dont know what else to say.
