MLK jr.

A surprise day off that equates with museum hopping, cleaning, snuggling, and being still.
I awoke with the full intention of going into work today. I'm showered, dressed, got a little bit of work done and BAM, I'm still sitting here at home watching the snowflakes dance carelessly around the yard.  It's so pretty and fascinating to watch and it reminds me  that just like the snowflakes, we are all different. We may all come from the same source of life, but the stuff that shapes us are the values, friends, family, education, that we allow to come into our lives.


And today is a new today to celebrate brothers as we will watch their stories, their leadership, and their training in action on February 3, 2013. And as both a Patriots and Colts fan, I'm an oxymoron. Rival teams both enjoyed in this household due to the nature of moving around the USA with the Marine Corps. I can NEVER cheer on the Brownies and the Marine's state doesn't have pro football, so we'll go with the two places we've lived the longest and have watched the teams play in their own stadiums. Although the world's GREATEST sport reports for duty in 3 weeks and I ultimately cannot wait for that. I love love love baseball. The movies, the teams, the history. Love it.




And with yesterday's events there's another four years until the President gets switched voted out of office. All I am offering is loads and loads of prayers for our President and our Nation. The constitution was created for a reason and needs to be upheld. That is why our military swear an oath to it, not to the President.






And since it's Martin Luther King, Jr Weekend/Day I'll leave yall with these perfect quotes


“Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.


“But today our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change. The large house in which we live demands that we transform this world-wide neighborhood into a world – wide brotherhood. Together we must learn to live as brothers or together we will be forced to perish as fools.

We must work passionately and indefatigably to bridge the gulf between our scientific progress and our moral progress. One of the great problems of mankind is that we suffer from a poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually.” 
― Martin Luther King Jr.
