2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

I would like to challenge every person here to do one thing while you are out spending money on gifts:
One day, before the middle of December while shopping take a moment to buy 1 blanket, 1 toothbrush, 1 comb, 2 cans of soup that have the pop off lids. Find your local homeless shelter and go there, drop off your purchase and know you did more than spoil someone you love this year.

You would be amazed how grateful someone in need is.
Feel free to invite anyone and everyone and challenge them also.

From the depths of my heart… Thank you…Amy

New Blog…


So I ran pretty much outta data space on this blog so this will be my last post here. Here is the new blog website….


Yay for new beginnings

Just when i thought my life couldn’t get any better i set my purse between myself and the steering wheel to look for carmex (while parked) and VOILA’… My Bluetooth disconnects from my car and my car decides she is frickin bilingual.
Well I cannot re-sync my blue tooth until I convince her she’s not from France. But I don’t speak French so she doesn’t understand a word i say.

Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky

My best friend challenged me around 4 years ago to look in the mirror.

As I did, my head lowered and tears fell. I hated what I saw because all I could see was what negative people had said to me.

He stood behind me holding me tight. When he asked me what I saw I began with words I had heard over and over and over again… ” ‘I am fat, ugly and stupid. I am an idiot who doesn’t know anything.’ I see a very scared woman who doesn’t know if she can survive alone. I see a very frightened little girl.”

He hugged me so tight and whispered in my ear “you have been robbed of the privilege of seeing an amazingly intelligent and absolutely beautiful woman. You are very lost but only you can answer what path you want to take in your life. May I tell you what i see?”


“I see beauty, not just your outward beauty but also the kind and loving soul that has a heart more incredible than anyone I have ever met before.”

“then you have not met many people have you?” I interjected.

He hugged tighter “Woman!! I also see a woman with a comeback for almost anything I say! And a child’s playful spirit that encompasses a decisive, level headed, reasoning person. I have yet to find a subject that you do not have an opinion on or don’t know something about in detail. I see a woman who doesn’t argue her point, just states it matter of factly. You have swayed how I think many a time because of your reasoning behind what you have said. I see a brave woman who doesn’t know she is.”

This man has always asked me if I have been looking in the mirror… he has encouraged me to look deeper than the glass, to look at Amy, not as anybody’s anything but just as Amy. As I tell him of the setbacks in my life he encourages me to go back to the point when things went awry and take a different path, not to allow setbacks to hinder me from a goal. And when I talk to him about something exciting in my life he smiles, you know that big ear to ear grin? Then he asks me “Are you beginning to see and believe in the Amy that I know?”

With that, I would challenge you all, with the love that has been shown to me, Look in the mirror, not as anybody’s anything but as you. What do you see? Do you see a lie that negative people have made you believe or do you see the person you want to be, have every ounce of becoming or are?
