Just a day, just an ordinary day

I'm going out today to get some pencils and sketching paper. I've got all these ideas for photo shoots that I want to do and I want to get them drawn before I start them. Now I've just got to find one of my friends brave enough to pose through all my crazy ideas.

Wish me luck.

Christians don't judge

http://www.equalrights4all.org/religious/bible.htm

Finally found it! I've been searching for information on what the Bible says about marijuana use. I like many Americans enjoy the sensations from marijuana use. This doesn't mean I'm an addict or a bad person. I'm not hurting anyone when I smoke. My kids never see, hear or smell it. It's never around them. I use it like some use a glass of wine, like a night cap. I'm a much more relaxed and happy person when I know I can take a little time to myself at night and smoke.

Baby fever...nope not me

I love my boys. I love how small their hands are and how soft and fragile they are in my palm. I love to brush their hair and pick out cute clothes for them. I love to read their favorite stories over and over to them. I love taking walks with them hand in hand. I love when they fall asleep beside me and I can hear their little snores. There are so many reasons to want children. To be able to give and get love unconditionally is an amazing gift.

As much as I love my boys, I also see the hardships of having children. Worrying about them almost every second of the day. Protecting without over protecting. Balancing being a parent vs being their friend. The cost of all their needs and wants. Loss of sleep and alone time and time with other children.

Again I love my two boys, I wouldn't trade them for anything anyone could offer me. But the decision to have another child is one that I am not taking lightly. I'm doing everything in my power to avoid a pregnancy right now, the natural way of course. I'm just not ready to give anymore of myself to another child. Wow now that I wrote that it seems a bit selfish. Selfish or not, it's the truth.

It won't be like this for long

I can never change the past. So why is it that I spend so much time dwelling on it?

I'm happy right now, in this moment, in the last few moments actually. I'm starting to see that I have control over this. I have the control to make myself happy. And I'm enforcing it.
