Many many many things remind me of you. Maybe it’s just tumblr’s fault but my mind is very good at being reminded of you. Any way this song caused me to more then just remember you momentarily, so I decided to mention it.
Nice. It is paramount to be nice. To teach others to be nice.
Because that girl I teased in grade school, she’s going to be a mother soon. God forbid I diminished her self esteem or taught her how to better demean someone. God forbid that my actions rub off onto her child and there legacy. If they do what sort of legacy have I left?
Now I can make all sorts of excuses. I can say that I was just a kid and I didn’t know what words could do. I could say that if she is a bad parent it won’t be my fault but hers. I could say all sorts of things…. But what are they worth!? How could any excuse, no matter how eloquent, be a good thing when it’s attempting to nullify a crime against a persons value and life?
God forbid that I forget the value of being nice.
God forbid that I become an expert at excusing every time I chose to be mean.
When I was in third grade, I chose to threaten a girls life. I threatened to take her life. That girl is a mother now, and I think it’s beautiful. I can’t believe I ever thought it was okay to take that beauty away from the world.
I think it’s amazing that you are carrying life. I think you are amazing and I can’t ell but wish you and your family the best!Although we don’t really have contact with each other at all these days I want you to know that I’m sorry for ever threatening you like that. You are worth far much more then my anger and insecurities were or ever will be. I know this May seem silly to you or many years late however Please forgive me for any damage those words or other forms of my carelessness ever caused you and know that I didn’t know what I was doing. I thought I did but I didn’t.
#Sometimes and only sometimes the #sunrise turns all the dust into little specks of gold. I tell you what though, it’s worth getting up early a whole month just to catch these moments. In the same way; sometimes and only sometimes a sunrise can turn a whole bunch of enemies into siblings as they stand in awe. I’ll tell you what though, it’s worth enduring a whole month of strife just to have siblings in those special moments. Sometimes it seems the darkness is more common than the light, yet no matter how long the winter it seems the same intrinsic joy always endures to come out in response to the light. I’ll take a lesson from nature and do what I need to make sure I don’t miss an opportunity to catch the light. #waiting #chasingthelight #poetry? #perfectlight #pdx #maxstop #saturdaymarket #prius #productplacement #mentalchuckle (at Skidmore Fountain)
Walked from work to church today. It was nice to slow down and walk along the streets of the city I give so much of my life to. Found this gem along the way. Makes me think about all the doors god has opened for me in life and more recently on my vacation. It was such a blessing to be a traveler and watch god just provide beds, food and amazing company all along the way. Love the feeling of security I have now knowing that his goodness I going ahead of me everyday opening doors and preparing my steps. #pdx #walkaround #opendoors #godisgood #sundayfunday
