Having tons of fun in the sun...

July is my month and I am really enjoying every bit of it.  I am a guidance counselor so I am off from my full time job for the month of July and August.  Please pray that the school district I work for gets it together and I have a school/job to report to September 1st.  Thanks in advance :)

I have missed a couple of days from the challenge to I am going to do a little combo post.  Hey, who doesn't like getting more "bang for your buck." although reading is free - you get my point.  So here goes..

Day 13- A letter to someone who has hurt you recently 
Day 14- A picture of you and your family 
Day 15- Put your iPod on shuffle: First 10 songs that play 
Day 16- Another picture of yourself 
Day 17- Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why 
Day 18- Plans/dreams/goals you have 

13 - Trying to think of the last time I was hurt.  I guess it was last week Monday.  I am really trying to build relationships with three specific women but unfortunetly it seems like no matter how hard I try, nothing ever comes of it.  I don't want to force the relationship but sometimes I wish people reciprocated just a little more.  I know I'm older but I've tried all I can without being a nuisance just wishing they would text,call or even facebook me occaisionally...Just a thought :(

14/16 - I can't wait to take some updated pics when I go visit my father for my bday.  So stay tuned for that.  I also want to do an engagement photoshoot with my honey - we shall see :)

15 - On my ipod the first ten songs that played were... Random I know but still such a great selection of music
For all we know - Donny Hathaway
Motivation - Kelly Rowland
Flashing Lights - Kanye
Crazy in Love - Beyonce
Isn't she lovely - Stevie Wonder
On to the next one - Jay-Z
California King Bed - Rihanna
Just my imagination - The Temptations
I Feel Good - Stephanie Mills
Love on Top - Beyonce

17 - Oh to be Oprah for a day - the many things I would do and say.  That woman is remarkable and simply amazing.  I gained a new found respect for her watching her last show.  Yes, she had a two day mega show with every guest and performer you could think of but for her very last show after 25 successful years she chose to end it by herself speaking truth to her millions of viewers.  She discussed hard work, having the strength to endure, loving, trusting and placing your faith in God is how she was able to break barriers and become the woman she is today.  Even if I wasn't as faithful as my mother or others who watched her show everyday, watching that final episode truly moved me and did something positive for my spirit.  I would simply talk to her over coffee and great dessert like two old girlfriends.  I would ask for advice,
words of encouragement, what it feels like to be a phenom.  I'd also ask for
a tour of her homes, to take several pictures and if I could serve on the board of
one of her many companies - a girl can dream can't she???

18 - I'm truly focused on my 27th chapter of life and making it the best possible.  How can I better myself? How can I be a better daughter, sister, fiancee, friend, woman of christ.  I just want to be a blessing to others and let God shine through me.  I want to be a positive force in the lives of others.  I want to live constantly hearing the voice of my mother whisper softly in my ear that she loves me and is proud of me.
