Apache Wedding Prayer

Now you will feel no rain,

for each of you will be shelter for the other.

Now you will feel no cold,

for each of you will be warmth to the other.

Now there will be no loneliness,

for each of you will be companion to the other.

Now you are two persons,

but there are three lives before you: his life, her life and your life together.



Go now to your dwelling place to enter into your days together.

And may all your days be good and long upon the Earth. - Apache Wedding Prayer

I am going to my sister in law's wedding tomorrow. Angela is starting her life with a wonderful man named John.

I am feeling a little sentimental. I am posting a picture of Rick and I from our wedding and this wonderful poem I found on the internet.

Thanks for visiting me. Have a wonderful weekend.

A Wish


I lie on the ground,

and stare into space,

the stars start to move,

into the shape of your face.


I see you there now,

looking down at me,

with that cute little smile,

that I like to see.


You say "close your eyes",

"tell me what you see",

I see only two people,

just you and me.


We're walking the shoreline,

with our feet getting wet,

the horizon turns pink,

as the sun starts to set.


We make love through the night,

on that white sandy shore,

then I hold you while thinking,

I could want nothing more.


Oh I wish I could be,

in that one special place,

as I lie on the ground,

and I stare into space.

You

You brought happiness into my lonely heart

You brought emotions alive again

You were not prepared what we were to start

You were not ready for what was to begin

You saw my pain and my sorrow

You made me look forward to another tomorrow

You made me laugh and you made me cry

But most of all you made me feel alive

Be more and more a watcher

Be more and more at ease.

Be more and more here and now.

Be more and more in action, and less and less in activity.

Be more and more hollow, empty, passive.



Be more and more a watcher — indifferent, not expecting anything, not desiring anything.

Be happy with yourself as you are.

Osho.

Alyssa, the college student extraordinaire

The Proud Mom post.

I think back to where I was September 1990, after I graduated High School. I had just found out I was pregnant with Alyssa.

Rick and I were eighteen, and besides wanting a family, we didn't know much how to do it!

Now our daughter is eighteen. She is a full time college student, doing volunteer work all over our city and county. She worked full time in a Help Desk environment over the summer, and received praise for her work ethic and performance.

When she has free time, she drives to Des Plaines to help my seventy-one year mother with whatever she can help with. She drives grandma to the store, helps out with the chores. Just yesterday after class, she went to my niece, her cousin's open house, because my brother was unable to attend. She went to all of her classes to gather information on the cirriculum.

I know she is going to be embarrassed to read this. But truly, I could not be more proud. She has a giving, selfless soul who thinks of others first.

Blessed for the holiday weekend! I hope you all are too!

Happy Labor Day!!
