Manic Monday #18

Manic Monday......BIG

11:08 PM - June 08, 2005

Dear BV,
I heard this song the other day and thought about you. I'll have to download it. Its a great song and even though its not Bono singing it I know you would love it!

When you cry be sure to dry your eyes, cause better days are sure to come.And when you smile be sure to smile wide, and don't let them know that they have one. And when you walk, walk with pride, and don't show the hurt inside, because the pain sill soon be gone.

Chorus:And when you dream, dream big, as big as the ocean blue. Cause when you dream it might come true. When you dream, dream big.

And when you laugh be sure to laugh out loud, cause it will carry all your cares away. And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself, and it will help you feel okay. And when you pray, pray for strength to help to carry on when the troubles come your way.

Love, Shellie"

On the B Side: In another time, in another place and on another blog this was an entry that Shellie left for me during a difficult time. The word "big" brought my mind back to this entry. Thank you Shellie for your encouragement as it has carried me many times!

It's nice to have friends who stick with us through rough times.
It's not until we're actually in those rough times that we discover which friends want to stay at our side.

Glad Shellie was there for you.

Sweet stuff. Love those little bright spots of encouragement that stick with us to make us smile again and again.

You've got some new readers! You must've left a linky on Mo's blog or other's blogs! :) I recognize a few names from those blogs.... everyone that's commented except Kaci.

You rock...

Hey, Britta! Sorry so late, but congrats on your baby! That's excitin'!

So hey...Oracle contacted me on Tuesday about a support position with PeopleSoft in the Sandy office, and I had 3 phone interviews today from 10 'til 11:30. There are 3 positions open, so hopefully I get one!

Yah, we haven't updated the baby's site EVER...we're always too tired, but I told Holly to just tell me what to say and I'll type it. We're going to record some videos and junk also for the site. I'll let you know when it actually happens, lol

Anywho, congrats again!!!
