Happy February

February 1st, where did January go? It hasn't even been winter yet....some will get so angry at me for saying that cause they believe I'm going to jinx the nice weather we've been having. I personally think that this month we're doomed! I think Mother Nature has to make up for the lack of snow and below freezing temperatures and this month is going to be a brutal one. Have to wait and see I guess.

I don't know if I accomplished a lot this month, let me think....I did a few scrapbook pages, have not experienced any January blues (I thank the weather), I've made giant steps in getting my passport application completed, I've done okay with my new years resolutions (few bumps along the way but I haven't quit) and I just finished reading The Princess, it was recommended to me by Jen, she read it because her sister Lisa (who's a pastor) had told her it was a great Christian Romance novel. I have to agree, it's such a great story. It only took me two evenings to read it. I read one review after I had read it and they claimed the people were abnormally religious, but I beg to differ...going up in a very religious home I thought the book was very accurate to the thoughts and prayers of true born again Christians. If anything I would say the person who left the comment doesn't have a true meaning of what being "born again" means. Anyway enough of my sermon for the day....

So my goal this month will be about LOVE since Valentines is on the 14th, I figured it would be appropriate. Here are a few quotes from Oprah.com regarding love:

"Spontaneous and honest love admits errors, hesitations, and human feelings; it can be tested and repaired" Nancy Friday

"It seems to be that true love is discipline..." W.B. Yeats

I don't exactly know what I should do or not do as part of my goal of love, it can be so general. I could make it that I have to be more loving to everyone, but in the spirit of romance I think I will focus on Kristen this month. Maybe next month I can focus specifically on friends or family. Guess I'll decide that next month. Any LOVE suggestions welcomed....nothing too expensive please :)

Suggestion for your month of "Love"...The first step to loving someone else is to love yourself first, right? So, why not focus on YOU! You always give to everyone else first, particularly Kristen, and then put yourself last. How about buying yourself something just because (Not because you NEED it), and tell Kristen that February is "Love Love Love Christa" month :)

Myrna's idea sounds great to me. Reward yourself, and be selfish for once.

Did someone say that it was "too" religious? I bet that an actual Christian wouldn't say that. I think it's all cute and innocent..something most people don't get to experience. Stupid people. :)
