you make me smile

January 27, 2010

You´re better then the best
I´m lucky just to linger in your life
Cooler then the flip side of my pillow that´s right
Completely unaware
Nothing can compare to where you send me
Lets me know that it´s ok yeah it´s ok
And the moments where my good times start to fade

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile

Even when you´re gone
Somehow you come along
Just like a flower poking through the sidewalk crack and just like that
You steal away the rain and just like that

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like bird
Dizzy in my head spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile

Don´t know how I lived without you
Cuz everytime that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed sing like bird
Dizzy in my head spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh you make me smile
Ohh you make me smile
Ohh you make me smile

dear john

January 23, 2010

well i have been meaning to pick up the book dear john by nicholas sparks for months now.  i finally broke down and bought it.  i love nicholas sparks, however his stories always end all happy and the couple finally in love, and to be honest i always feel worse about myself after, no matter how good the book was. well if your looking for a happy ending book, this is not for you, however it does still leave you crying ALOT.

I loved this book for multiple reasons however the book brought to light that i still deeply care for someone in my life who holds a special place in my heart.   a long time ago i wrote about a relationship i had over last summer,  one that still touches me to this day.  i still love josh as if it just happened yesterday.  i think about him all the time and randomly we’ll text, call or even chat on facebook.  i have yet to miss a day of including him in my prayers and i find this to be even more important in the next few months as he leaves again for another tour in afghanistan.  i dont yet know what God has in store for josh nor do i know the reasons why He placed him in my life.  although josh and i are no longer together nor do i think that we were meant for one another, i have yet to regret the time we had together. 

well anyways, while reading the book i highlighted a bunch of quotes that not only made me think of josh but made me realize that love is out there and im lucky to have found it at least once in my life thus far.   so enjoy 🙂

“And when her lips met mine, I knew that I could live to be a hundred and visit every country in the world, but nothing would ever compare to that single moment when I first kissed the girl of my dreams and knew that my love would last forever.”

“All i could think was that i would like to spend every morning for the rest of my life waking up beside her.”

“As we were drifting apart, i was becoming more desperate to save what we once had shared; like a vicious circle, however, my desperation made us drift apart even further.”

“I’m still in love with her, and to me that means that i want nothing more than for her to be happy in life. I want that more than anything. It’s all i’ve ever wanted for her.”

“It’s possible to go on, no matter how impossible it seems, and that in time, the grief . . . lessens. It may not go away completely, but after a while it’s not so overwhelming.”

“I finally understood what true love meant…love meant that you care for another person’s happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.”

“I love you, not just for now, but for always, and I dream of the day that you’ll take me in your arms again.”

“You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me. You were my best friend and my lover, and i dont regret a single moment of it.”

“We’d met at a carefree time, a moment full of promise; in its place now were the harsh lessons of the real world.”

“The saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last.”

“I’m going to marry you one day, you know.” “Is that a promise?” “If you want it to be.”

“When your struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, its just as hard as what your going through.”

p.s. i love you oopie. have and forever will.

11:11

January 22, 2010

for as long as i’ve known of the ridiculous rule of make a wish at 11:11, my OCD has faithfully come into play.  whenever i see the time whether its am or pm i always make a wish…. well today i happened to be taking a medication and math test.  i’d been stumped on a question for a good ten minutes and went to use the calculator on my phone… noticed the time was 11:11 and instantly made a wish hoping that i’d get the answer right.    now, having said all this, a happy ending would have been that i got the answer right, however i did not hahaha but either way, i thought it was funny that even in the middle of an exam my OCD comes out through and through.   plus, it still gives me hope that my real wish will come true one day 🙂   

have a good friday!

a time for everything

January 20, 2010

as i look back on everything that has happened the past few months i sit and wonder as to the reasons behind it all.  i’ve learned to put all my trust in God not because i was a ‘great christian’ but because i really had no where to turn to, but through that i have learned many lessons in trusting God in times of need as well as in good times.  i’ve also learned to give up control of my life and to put my life in His hands.  i no longer question the reasons behind things, nor do i really even want to know them anymore.  just knowing that God places me where i need to be at the right time has helped me get through alot the past month. there’s a reason why i’m in texas, i do not know the reasons, however i’m okay with that because God has a plan and that plan is in place. 

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance… –Ecclesiastes 3:1-4

moving in

January 16, 2010

well all my stuff is being delayed still…. so pretty much i’ve been camping out at my apartment for the past few days with my two suitcases and a sleeping bag i stole from cousin carrie so i wouldn’t be sleeping on the bare floor….

finally my stuff arrived, whew.  now, a week into my leave to set up my apartment, i can finally start emptying boxes and putting things in their place.  in less than two days, the kitchen is all set up minus a few random items and the bedroom is mostly set up minus picture frames and shoes (i have yet to attemp trying to organize all my shoes, that will come for the weekend hahha).   although i would like the process of emptying boxes to move faster, i have met a stumbling block… i recently became addicted to xbox thanks to mike and kyle. so… i bought an xbox so that i could play dvds and to really get my ass kicked by them lol (really i laugh the whole time cause im horrible), but if any of you guys play… hit me up on xbox live @ beachsnowbabe01.
