I Adore You…xx

In Uncategorized on July 26, 2010 at 3:00 pm

To adore someone, what does that mean?  To be completely enamored with them, to worship the ground they walk on. To see beauty in them, often times when no one else sees the beauty that you see.  The word “Adore” to me is actually the most romantic word in the global language there is, and it works on me everytime.

I adore many thing though. I adore the way my children listen to me. The way my daughter mothers her daughter, and the way my oldest son works hard for his paycheck.

I also adore the way my friends adore me.

I adore good music, and well written books, and movies.

I adore My Freedom and those who fight for it.

Complicated? It is What it Is

Why must we classify everything we do, down to the people in our lives?  Recently it occurred to me that everyone on a social networking site I belong to, Facebook,  seems to be preoccupied with announcing the status of their personal lives. Why should this even matter?  Is it because we have an image to maintain. or possibly because we are a bit insecure?  Sometimes it is a bit of both.  Either way I have decided that social networking sites should have an ” It is What It Is” category. This basically means call it what you want, we do our thing and that’s that. It just works for us , PERIOD

This would work in a non judgmental world,  but we know that is not the case. There is a bitch in every bunch.

Keeping your private life private is a good way to handle this. Not giving a crap and throwing caution to the wind is another, but there is much to be lost, and unfortunately Freedom does come at a cost, ask our soldiers.

I guess in a way we are all victims of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Land of The Free, Home of The Brave

As we embark on our Nation’s Birthday, let’s pause to reflect as to how and why our great Nation was born.  A group of weary brave souls were fed up with the tyranny of living under a monarchy religious led government which gave them no freedom to believe as they chose to believe. Basic human rights of the ability to think for themselves were being stolen from them.

The voyage over on the Mayflower was not an easy one, it took great bravery to leave their homeland of England behind and travel to a strange new land an ocean away. They understood the risks involved. Freedom was worth it to them. They were Freedom Fighters. America was built on the principles of human rights and freedom of speech, the right to assemble.

Today we hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. This country was founded on this idea. I am proud to be an American. Happy Birthday America.
