the absence of my posts...

...has been due to the fact that a lot has been going on in my life so here is a brief summary:


1) Poetry. Ah, I love me some good poetry. Recently, I have read a few poems from a friend who, in my opinion is a fabulous writer. I asked to share his work with you and he agreed to allow me to post one of his poems. Now, one of the main reasons I particularly like this poem is because I.love.stuffed.animals. I mean, c'mon, think about it, who is loyal, cuddly, always listening, and squishy? My stuffed animals that's who! ;)

So here is Andrew's work:


Fabric of Frienship

I was once your boyhood boon
We'd be together beneath every moon.
Every night was an adventure on which we'd embark.
Remember every memory made on tiptoe in the dark?
You were so scared of monsters below the bed
But you'd never check you'd just hold me instead.
We would build forts when we were supposed to sleep
You told me your secrets I always will keep.
But There came I time when I was outgrown.
Slowly You changed and left me alone
I once was a friend you knew you could trust.
Now I'm alone in the dark and the dust.
I'm somewhere hidden in the back of your mind
I'm a monster below the bed you're too scared to find
I knew one day you'd forget that I exist
I just never imagined it hurting like this.
You made me more than a heart full of fluff
But sometimes miracles aren't enough.
So I'll wait until you're ready to care

About this silly old teddy bear.

2)  I've raised almost half of my goal to get to Costa Rica! God keeps blowing me away. He is my provider!

3)Work is super busy.always. It keeps me on my toes. In other news, I've become a registered Pharmacy technician, woot! :)

4)  I joined an Ephesians bible study at church, which has been extremely encouraging.
    a) *side note* I met an Australian today...at bible study. I just wanted to sit and listen to her talk...forever ;)

5)God has been working in me and I have so many random things to write about but I just haven't made time to sit and focus on typing out my thoughts.Hopefully, I'll get those posts written up soon.

6) As crazy as it sounds, I missed being forced to write. I've always loved to write, and being in a structured environment helps honing in on writing skills, which I've been lacking in.

7) Exercise. *sigh* I tried getting back into jogging and alternating with Pilates every other day. Every thing was going as planned, I was running strong and consistent. Pilates was kicking butt! Then...then I almost dislocated my knee cap again ,ugh, back to discouragement in the exercise arena. I'm going to give swimming and cycling a shot, though. I would like to find some sort of exercise I can do faithfully, well, that's the goal at least.
