Just like wind and waves
This will all blow over soon
Know that I love you

I heard the wind rush
Just outside of my window
It blew me over

I am forgetful
I have forgotten my key
Will you let me in?

Let's runaway to our dream
A life by the sea

I am more than this
More than water, skin, and bones
I am a new soul

Yo siento tu luz como
Una estrella

My unspoken thoughts
Entirely revealed
Through ink on paper
I am a Journal Cartoonist.

To be swept away I yearn
To lose all control

The storm beckoned me

I wanted to feel something

I stood in the rain

That's where I will be
Flying among stars at night
That's where I belong

Eat Your Frog Early!

Mander, try eating that bitter frog or that task (HW assignment, project, paper, etc) early in the morning so the rest of your day can be less stressful and productive…

(Thanks Dad.)

There’s an old saying that says, “If the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning is eat a live frog, then nothing worse can happen for the rest of the day!”

Brian Tracy, one of America’s leading authorities on the development of human potential, says that your “frog” should be the most difficult item on your things to do list, the one you’re most likely to procrastinate on; because, if you eat that first, it’ll give you energy and momentum for the rest of the day. But, if you don’t…and let him sit there on the plate and stare at you while you do a hundred unimportant things, it can drain your energy and you won’t even know it.

Love Love Love

What does ‘love’ mean? A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds: ‘What does ‘love’ mean?’ The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

‘When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore.

Rebecca - age 8

‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’
Billy - age 4

So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.’

Karl - age 5

‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.’
Chrissy - age 6

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.’

Terri - age 4

‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.’
Danny - age 7

‘Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’

Emily - age 8

‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.’
Bobby - age 7

‘Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss’

Nikka - age 6

‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.’
Noelle - age 7

‘If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,’

Tommy - age 6

‘During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.’
Cindy - age 8

‘Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.’

Clare - age 6

‘Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.’
Elaine-age 5

‘My mommy loves me more than anybody You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.’

Chris - age 7

‘Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day’
Mary Ann - age 4

‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.’

Lauren - age 4

‘When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.’
Karen - age 7

‘I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.’

Jessica - age 8

And the final one — Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.’

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

‘Nothing, I just helped him cry’
When there is nothing left, that is when you find out that love is all you need.
