Big Girl Panties

5 Feb

I put them on, and I’m getting over it.
No more feeling sorry for myself. No more sitting around waiting for something to happen. It is so shameful the way I have acted and thought here recently. I have so much to be grateful for. I did some soul searching today and finally decided that it was time to move on.
I opened the windows to let some light in. Put on some music (which is still playing). Got in the kitchen and started cleaning up the mess that has been there for DAYS while I sat here feeling depressed. Sorry for myself if I’m being totally honest (which apparently I am).
Then it started happening. The music started moving me. The sun started soaking in and I started feeling… Happy? Yes, I think so. I even danced. What?!
And that’s when my Heavenly Father decided to knock me upside the head. This song started playing:
Well, I knew He was talking to me. I knew that I really needed to LISTEN. I fell to my knees right there, and I just listened. I felt so full of the Spirit. And He was testifying to me.
As the song neared it’s end, all of a sudden I felt a shove on my chest. My eyes popped open in shock and Georgie’s nose was right in front of mine. I looked into those soulful eyes and I just giggled and cried at the same time.


How do I manage to forget this? How can I take it all for granted? Why am I filled with anything but gratitude?

I really don’t know.
So, I got back up off the floor and with big girl panties firmly in place and attitude readjusted, I proceeded to CLEAN the kitchen. And I felt better when I was done. Please don’t misunderstand that my world revolves around how clean my house is, but I’ve found that my surrounds tend to look like the way my insides feel. It needed to be done, and I needed to do it.
P.S. Image searching for “big girl panties” is interesting. You should try it.

Friday night, we were invited to an American Idol Karaoke Party at the Mikelson’s. I was ecstatic because I felt I had found an answer to my quandry. You see, I have this 30-before-30 list– And one of my goals, #27 to be exact, had me wondering how it would be accomplished since I have no desire to head into a bar…

So, I can scratch #27 off the list! I made a fool of myself singing karaoke in the comfort of our friend’s home. And I tell you what, I thought sober karaoke would be really scary, but it was so much FUN! Seriously. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Did I mention that my husband also sang? Holy Canolli- he sure did! It was so stinkin’ cute!

And although, there were some naysayers who suggest that I in fact, did NOT actually make a fool of myself because I ended up the “winner”- I’d like to remind you of one rendition in particular:

Beyonce’s Irreplaceable

‘Nuff Said.

Come Home

8 Oct

This is what I need to say today, and this song says it perfectly. Just putting it out there to the world and maybe, just maybe. Providing the video so you can hear the song and the words so you can get the message.

Come Home by One Republic

Hello world, hope you’re listening
Forgive me if I’m young, speaking out of turn
There’s someone I’ve been missing
I think that they could be, the better half of me
They’re in the wrong place trying to make it right
And I’m tired of justifying,
So I say to you-

(Chorus)
Come home, come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, for so long
And right now there’s a war between the vanities,
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known,
So come home.

I get lost in the beauty of everything I see
The world ain’t half as bad as they paint it to be
If all the sons and all the daughters stopped to take it in
Well hopefully the hate subsides and the love can begin
It might start now…. Yeah
Or maybe I’m just dreamin’ out loud
But until then-

(Chorus)
Come home, come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, for so long
Right now there’s a war between the vanities
but all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
So come home

Everything I can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why I need you here
Everything I can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why I need you here
So hear me now-

(Chorus)
Come home, come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long, for so long
Right now there’s a war between the vanities
But all I see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
Even known
So come home
Come home
