I overslept this morning so I'm in a bit of a rush, but here we go....
Last night on the way home from work I was listening to John King on Sirius CNN. They were talking about the Republican presidential candidates and their feelings regarding immigration, illegal immigrants, and what needs to be done about the situation. The whole while they were discussing the issue, I sat and thought, OK this is only about Mexico, not Canada. But why?
No disrespect towards our brothers to the north, last I recalled no one ever suggested building 16 feet high barbed-wire fences stretching the length of the Northern Frontier Border? Why are we so hung up about Illegal Mexicans, like they're the dirt of the Western Hemisphere? IDK. I wish I had time to expound on my question. I know part of the problem is people feel illegals come and steal jobs from Americans, but let's be honest a moment! Most Illegals Immigrants take jobs that SOME feel are beneath them anyway. The other issue people feel illegals are leeching of the system.... blah, blah, blah.
I just don't understand.

Whew! It's been a busy pass few days. I'm swamped with work and trying to get organized with my second job, but I'm here. Simply put, I'm here.
The feeling is kinda liberating because for a change I feel I'm doing something instead just hoping for something. When I do put my mind toward goals, yes dreams can be had. Slowly, life is moving in a positive direction. Ian is getting it together, albeit with a little help from friends and family.
Have a prosperous day no matter what the circumstances.
In love 'n hope,

Another rainy day in the Midstate. I'm not sure if I should start gathering the animals or not! Been raining since Sunday. I've said to more than enough folks, "Can't we send some of this to Texas?!?!?!" They need it badly. I think PA gotten it's fair share."
I dunno when the rain plans to stop, but it's kinda putting the kabosh to plans I had this week. But as the old saying goes...
"Whether the weather is good, whether it's hot, We must whether the weather, whether we like it not..."
In Peace & Hope,

"These are the days of the empty hand
Oh you hold on to what you can
And charity is a coat you wear twice a year
This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there is over here
So you scream from behind your door
Say what's mine is mine and not yours
I may have too much but I'll take my chances
'Cause God's stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things they sold you
Did you cover your eyes when they told you
That he can't come back
'Cause he has no children to come back for"
Twenty one years later and this song still speaks to me. I wonder if folks do get the message?
In love & faith..
In love & faith..

"Hustle, hustle, hustle. Keep it pushin', keep it moving. Ain't gonna stop til I reach the top!"
That's today's mantra. No time to worry about past mistakes or worry about the future. All I really have is this moment... Yup.

Happy September! Can't believe it's September, which means fall is just around the corner. Where did summer go??? Anyway, I ran into some hiccups with recounting my story from vacay. Not sure if I should continue posting or just keep up with current events? We'll see...
