She can eat again

So my Kira has been I N L O V E with this kid at her school. Ever since last year when their class went on their 8th grade DC Trip. They got to hang out, and they sat next to each other on the plane, they shared a tapioca for desert- I know, totally true love!

So now their in High School and Kira has been a wreck about this kid, who we'll call Little T, since Tod calls himself the Big T.

Little T has been interested in Kira but thought he liked this other girl named.uhm, Shelli...

So Kira would spend days and hours texting Little T and one night he told her that he liked both her and Shelli. Kira was heartbroken. Extremely hurt, she held it together, held her head high and made sure she laughed and had a good time when he was around, made sure she didn't show that she was crushed.... I thought that was cool since I would have been in the corner crying.

Now it's about a month later and they have spent time together, they continue to text each other every second of the day, and he has "asked her out"... what that means to us that are no longer 15 years of age? It means they are going out! duh!, It means they are boyfriend and girlfriend.

I picked her up from school yesterday and I was so excited to et her in the car and talk to her. She is just so happy right now, she is all smiles, and she just thinks he's the SCHIZNIT! We all can relate to that!!! we talked and talked and then, there was silence followed by this:

Kira: "Mom, I don't know what it is, but I just can't eat anything, I haven't been hungry since, like, last Thursday! Like I have NO APPETITE AT ALL.... What do you think it is?"

She looked at me with these big scared eyes, and it was all I could do to keep a straight face.

MOM: "Kira, that is called 'BEING IN LOVE', you can eat now!"

Summer beach pics

My sister and Derek came up to have a bbq at the beach before the summer ended.

Good food, good company, and sad to see summer go so fast!

Do the right thing

So I haven't slept in days, last night was the worst. Tossing and turning.
Got in line early this morning to vote. After, a feeling overwhelmed me. I turned to Kira in the car and said, "Let me tell you Kira, remember to always do this..." She turned to me and listened as I told her, "Remember to always do your homework, your own foot work on issues." Don't act like the kids at school that just echo what their parents say, find out for yourself what potential presidents stand for, research each issue and what they believe, don't take my word for it, or even better yet, when you research and find out the facts, you are able to 'call your mom out' on issues I may view differently then you." "Don't just say what you hear your parents saying, challenge your parents, find out the truth and you'll always be able to speak intelligently on issues, to your classmates, teachers, parents, and to whomever may want to debate with you."
"Kira, it's your right to dig for the truth, to speak the truth, no matter who may agree or disagree with you."
She listened and shared her views about the last few days in school regarding the election. Some kids for Barrack Hussein Obama and some for John McCain. Kira stated clearly who she was for. Her words to me: "I wish I could vote, this is probably the most important election in my life time."
My mom's friend said it best two days ago:
Mom's friend: "I'm scared for the future."
Mom: "But as believers, we know we do not need to be afraid."
Mom's friend: "I guess I'm sad for our world, a world my children never got to know that was once good."
I believe in God, I believe Jesus died for our sins to have eternal life. I was raised that "In God We Trust" and thought for sure our American presidency would never doubt that as well.
I know now I was wrong.

I pray for Hope, Love and His coming
