i saw this picture with this saying this morning and i felt a sense of warmth. and also found it perfect for today. MLK jr. day. what an amazing individual. a modern day prophet. honestly i believe we have had quite a few modern day prophets - some that are still alive, but some that have passed in recent years. MLK, nelson mandella, bob marley, jimi hendrix, princess diana...i could go on. but these people give me hope. hope in humanity. hope in our own compassion....hope that we can make a change for the greater good. hope that we can use the means that we hold individually to make a difference.
thank you MLK jr. for all that you did for us while you were here on this earth. i truly believe you made a difference even though we have such a long way to go. but it was a huge step. you are greatly missed and i, personally will strive to individually keep your dream alive within my life and the people i encounter on this earth.
i've been sickly (again). i swear i have the weakest immune system known to mankind. i am feeling better though. this weekend was pretty eventful. me and the ladybug went to the palace of wax / ripley's believe it or not with my friend suzi and her daughter on saturday. what an awesome experience. we had such a great time. the wax sculptures, i have to admit, were a little freaky. i kept referring back to that horrid movie "the house of wax" and kept invisioning the wax sculptures coming out and grabbing me. that was an all day event, so i was pretty worn out by the time we got home late saturday night. attempted to go to soccer practice sunday morning and quickly decided that was a BAD idea considering it was 40 something degrees and i was still sick. left about 45 minutes of torturing myself and spent the rest of the day cleaning house. i really don't mind the cleaning part....i HATE laundry with a passion, but it's always nice to admire your finished work after you've completed. a sense of triumph if you will.
so today i'm here at work and don't feel like being here in the slightest bit. atleast it's quiet and i can get some things done without being distracted every few minutes.
happy monday all. ciao.
