A long time ago, when I first created a Livejournal, (under the dubious name of Ghettobootie02), I was in college, preparing to be a teacher, or a vocalist, whichever came first.

But then I had a little surprise my junior year and so I dropped out.

Then I decided that I would get married. 7 years and hundreds of pounds of heartache later, I was a single mom. Forever turned out to be more like for now, just until someone better comes along.

I resolved that it would just be me and my child. Us against the world. My anger burned bright, singeing those closest to me.

But fires burn out. And sometimes the answers you look for are on a different path.

Fourteen years later, I still wander the labyrinth of life. Nursing school is on the horizon, and my little surprise is in Middle School. My new husband's business is growing and I am working in a job that I love.

All things discovered far from my declared path.

I found my happiness, by getting lost along the way.

It's funny how you think your life is heading in one way and you end up on a a completely different path!


Light in the Darkness
My heart was broken open over and over and over again... and it just kept getting bigger.

It's time to either grow up, or disintegrate.

'What makes the desert beautiful,' said the little prince, 'is that it hides a well somewhere.'

To write love on her arms

You risk tears if you let yourself be tamed.

I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees.

The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty.

To whatever end.

I would not deny you, but by this good day, I yield upon great persuasion, and partly to save your life, for I was told you were in a consumption.
