something i got in the email that I thought was sweet.

It was late one Tuesday evening,
Before a mother could sit down,
To tell her only child about
The terror that hit downtown.
She looked into the eyes of her son
God, she loved him so,
She felt her heart begin to break
And the hurt begin to show.
She gathered all her strength and courage,
as her story she began to tell.
"Baby don't cry, but I'm afraid daddy
Might be under a building that fell."
The boy looked back at his mother,
His eyes made not one blink.
And the mother's tears began to fall.
What would her baby think?
You see, his dad is a firefighter,
And his hero from the day of his birth.
He loved his dad more than anything else
That could ever inherit this earth.
The mother's head began to drop,
Her forehead resting on palm.
She thought her son would be upset.
Instead, he was very calm.
The boy leaned over towards his mom,
And put his hand upon her head.
In her ear he began to whisper,
And this is what he said:
"Mommy please don't cry,
I knew daddy wasn't coming home.
I talked to him just a while ago,
But it wasn't on the phone.
He told me that he loved me,
And he promised we'd meet again.
He told of his new home,
And the job he was to begin."
"God is building an army,
And there are many angels needed.
That, is where daddy and the others went.
They weren't all defeated."
It was then, the mother lifted her head.
The tears streamed down her face.
And she could feel her husband's presence,
As it filled her heart with grace.
It was then she knew her son was right.
He was in God's great army now.
She also knew her son was safe,
That he'd be kept from harm somehow.
So, evildoers of the world beware.
An army is on the way.
Bolstered by new angels,
Who left the towers that day..
Their commander has never been beaten.
His power has never been matched,
And if evil thinks He was almighty before......
Well, the surface has just been scratched!

cherry coke...

i drank almost a whole twelve pack of cherry coke in two whole days! That is very, very bad..and is why I don't buy soda. I decided to buy some the other day for some odd reason, I guess I was craving it or something. bad, bad me.
My grandma called today to tell me she put $150 in my bank account so I could go buy some clothes. whoohoo!!! So, tomorrow I will be shopping. I'm hoping there will be a lot of sales since summer is almost over and I'll get some good deals...b/c I must admit $150 isnt a lot of money to buy clothes with...but I think it shall buy just enough! She also told me she is giving us spending money for the beach when my family is here...I don't feel right about excepting all of this money..but she wants us to have a good time and to not be worrying about money. My grandma is the best 'eh? I love her anyways. :)
Justin is now at Hooter's at a "going away" party. I was going to go, but when I saw that I had nothing to wear..I decided to stay home. I'm kind of sad about it, b/c I would have liked to go...but yah. He thought I was trying to trick him because I was letting him go. He was like "yah right. if i go you are going to be mad at me for a week!" Well, I'm not going to be mad at him..there is no need to be. Of course, I am upset b/c I would have liked to go...but like i said before i have absolutely NOTHING to wear. Everyone he works with is going to think I'm a bitch for not going, but do I care? nope. I hope he has fun!
Justin said they havent been taking out my life insurance in the checks..so now they are going to go all the way back and take out that money, which will be like $90 isnt that great?
Well that enough for now, and I'm sure I'll write again soon when something else happens in my exciting life.
