"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it
is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of
course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want
to escape from these things." ~T. S. Eliot
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you
did, but people will NEVER forget how you make them feel ~ Maya Angelou
I've always been drawn to things that display class, glamour, and beauty

Tonite we were on the phone for a couple of hours catching up on things and she can make me laugh so hard that my stomach hurts..Tonite we got giggling so hard I had to stop and catch my breath. Lola is a wonderful and very special friend to me. We met back in 1987, when I was working in the home health field, she was the care taker for a retirement home. When we struck up a conversation and I found out she was from Michigan and knew people that I knew..It is a small world..I had a friend for life. She has been
She is a truly good and wonderful friend. We have been friends for 20 years..Can you believe that LOLA!!!!!
First off let me tell you that when Dennis and Lola moved back to Michigan, I was just crushed, when you lose a friend like her it hurts. We did stay in contact with each other and she came down the same year I had Ryleigh, and we hadn't talked in a long time so when she showed up, Rick answered the door and was kinda shocked, but asked her to come in cause he had something to show her, it was ryleigh, Lola was shocked. We did manage to squeeze in some time together before she had to leave. I didn't here from Lola for about 2 years, We were both caught up in our own personal life that we kinda lost contact with each other. Then one night after getting a MYSPACE page, Jen and I found Lola, and when I seen her picture on the computer screen, It was Niagra Falls. Jen and I were just sobbing, then we messenged her and when i got a reply and asked if I was PENNY WOOD FROM FLORIDA, I felt excitment beyond words..We have stayed in contact for over a year now, she been here twice since. NOW CHRIS AND LOLA ARE COMING TO FLORIDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here are some of my favorite photos of LOLA and some she took while she was here and some she sent to me...

This is actual a picture from when we were sitting in traffic on Clearwater Beach, Ha!
I LOVE rubber duckies, they are so cute...
While doing a bible study at church, I picked this book up from the bookstore it's called,
"One Year Mini for Women." It has been a god sent for me so when I'm worried or when I have some type of problem that I need to work thur I pick this book up and start looking for what is waying heavy on my heart and go to that section and pray that I'll get knowledge of what I need.
I've recently had a setback and when I knew it would come up again, I thought I could deal with it, but guess what? I couldn't so instead of getting angry, bitter and not dealing withit. I ran, and I ran to God and he showed me what I needed to do. Here are some of the words that I read about "SETBACKS"
"When we have setback, how do we keep going in the face of a setback?"
"While bad experiences happen in life we know that God does not send them, instead God uses them to prepare us for an important assignment later on. Looking at setback from that perspective keeps us alert to what you can learn from them and helps you to endure them."
I'm so glad that we got this week to be together, because instead of not dealing with the feelings and what really was going on, we headed right to the problem and we dealt with them, worked thur something, that in the past would of sweept under the carpet and went on. I'm so proud of US..It makes me smile to think that God always has his loving hand on US.
As far as I am concerned, God turned into good what you meant for evil. Genesis 50:20
