We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

Truth Is

The truth is....I hate it when middle schoolers play this game on FB, but I am going to play it here.  Just for today.  But tell any of my middle school friends and I will deny it to my death.

The truth is....I hate winter.  Right now there are 69 days until daylight savings time.  Which means we are that much closer to me wearing shoes that do not require socks.  And not feeling like I should go to bed at 5:30. 

The truth is.....I took off my toenail polish under protest on December 3, 2011.  That is when I know it is winter.  When I take it off for the final time of the season.  My toes, well, they just look so naked now.

The truth is....I hate drama.  This girl has got it right.  This post is impressive.  Now if we would take what she says to heart, we would all be in a better place.  We're friends here girls, we need to take care of each other.

The truth is.....I have a very good friend who is hurting.  Again.  There are just some things I don't understand and I suppose I am not meant to understand.  But is sure sucks all the same.

The truth is....I really like to sew.  I am getting better at it and think that I can make it something I do in 2012.

The truth is....I could play word games til I throw up words.  I recently discovered this app called 'Words With Friends' and have limited myself to 4 games at one time.  Any more than that might be overkill, but I must confess that while I am waiting for others to play, I play Bookworm or Woooords.

The truth is....baking cookies is a coping mechanism for me.  And sharing them with others is my way of giving back.

The truth is....writing is something I enjoy and I am planning to do more of it.  If my writing offends you, stop reading.  If my writing helps you, great.

Just sayin'.

Since you play "Words With Friends" you might like to visit my blog to try my TV trivia anagram game. Have a happy new year.

Cute blog header! I am also a WWF addict (Jodaley). I play hanging wf too but like Words better.

I get a pedicure in the winter. I know my toes are covered up but it makes me feel better.

Happy 2012!

Your own soul is nourished when you are kind, but you destroy yourself when you are cruel. -Proverbs 11: 17
