I've come to realize that...

 I've come to realize that...

My son has been watching the movie "Kingdom of Heaven" and replaying the scene where Bailin of Ibelin makes all those around him a Knight before they head into battle.   That scene as well as the one when Bailin is created a Knight gives me "good" goosebumps, and reminds me that in relation to the same oath, I have a long way to go. 

Be without fear in the face of your enemies. 
Be brave and upright that God may love thee. 
Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. 
Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.

1.   The lady at the Credit Union always has a smile on her face and calls me "sweetie".   Yea, yea...she probably calls everyone "sweetie", but I like it, coming from her.

2.  I don't smoke, never have (ok, well maybe clove cigarettes in college but I DIDN'T INHALE!!!  Seriously, I didn't inhale, but I did lick my lips alot!)...so when a smoker is around me, and isn't even smoking...I can still smell them.  Yuck!

3.  In the lobby of the building where my Credit Union is located, Santa was handing out Candy Canes...a nice Holiday gesture. I like it!

4.  I have Wiiiiiiii!!!!!  One of the attorneys in my law firm had TWO of them...and opted to sell one for what she bought it for.  I mentioned we were looking for one for Eboy and she offered it to me!!  Yea!!!   Eboy THINKS he is getting one and IF he was, he knew it would be around the end of January.  THIS will be a surprise! I ordered an extra remote (from Gamestop) and a charger (from Amazon).

5.  I finally finished the UNABRIDGED audiobooks  "The Twentieth Wife" and "The Feast of Roses" by Indu Sundaresan.  (31 hours 57 minutes total, but I loved it!)

6.  I am enjoying reading the responses to the "meme" asking for my "LJ Friends" to tell them something about themselves.  

7.  Not so good:  

  

 

[profile] aliwodehalle left her pocketbook at my house on Sunday.  Good: we get to visit again tonight when she comes down to pick it up. 

8.  I brought in Rum Cake yesterday (nomnomnom) and Brandy, and Rum Balls today.  One of the attorneys pops into my office "do you cook anything without alcohol?"...LOL.  May I will make some Turkey Empanaditas one night this week and bring them in. 

<sigh> back to work...

Thanks to 

[profile] drueta for her post  titled "Thankful Thursday".  It is a good reminder to "not sweat the small stuff". 

A few of the things that I am thankful for: 

-The visit that I just had from my dad and stepmom, and for the opportunity that Eboy had time to spend with his grandparents; for their generosity; for their unconditional love.

- being debt free;

- my good health and that of my son;

- the opportunity to live in a warm and comfortable home;

- the relationship I have with Eboy's father; 

- true friends

The Archangel Within (An Archangel Quiz)




Gabriel - "God is my Strength". Intelligent, down to earth, tolerant, and merciful, you are most like Gabriel. You like to be straightforward but at times feel you do not want to be too harsh so you pour some sugar on to try and make things less painful for others. You care a great deal about other people even if they give you an absolute headache at times. You are very loyal and know how to keep your friend's secrets when asked. You are a rather logical sort and it seems at times you are viewing the world in a totally different mindset then most. Your an excellent communicator and may be diverse in several languages. When people have problems they know who to go to for mediation. Its a tough job, but someone has to do it, just do not overwork yourself. You need to keep your "give and take" balance in check otherwise you will tire out easily.Biblical Facts: Gabriel is often depicted with a Scythe and long magnificent silver horn. It is used as a traditional instrument in Gods orchestra, can lull beings to sleep, and it is said that he will sound it upon the day of Armageddon which will signal for all the faithful souls to go and join the creator in Heaven. It is also said that before a human being is born Gabriel whispers all the knowledge of god to the unborn child and presses a finger to their lips creating the cleft between their nose and upper lip.

The planetary currents are pulling you into deep emotional waters and you may not be able to use your normal intellectual tools to stay on course. In fact, you may reach a point where you simply give up trying to figure out what to do. Once you recognize that intense feelings don't need to be fixed, everything will begin to settle down and you'll be able to enjoy yourself.


um, wow.
