If You're Not Scared - K's Choice



This is another of my all time favorite songs.  I always think of my Nanna when I hear it.  I miss her so deeply sometimes I feel like my heart is going to shatter.  There are moments when I forget she's gone...only to have the cloak of heavy sadness and darkness drown my thoughts.  I am scared.  I wish I could hear her voice.  I wish my hand could be cradled in her's like it always would be when I was close to her.  I wish I was listening to her stories, yes the ones I'd heard a thousand times before. 

How I wish I could go back and make right the choices I made.  How I wish.


Lyrics to K's Choice - If You're Not Scared
Outside it's raining, still you shine
How I've missed your trembling hands inside of mine
I've been away for ages, still you care
Do you count the Sundays when I'm there

Teach me how to watch this game
The way you see it through your magical frame
Time is ticking, try to see
That I am you and you are me

Don't deny that you're afraid to go
Don't deny that you want to cry
Look around and watch your children grow
I feel love in every sigh
If you're not scared, then why am I

Tell me stories, tell me more
Make me feel guilty for being bored
Tell me how to pick up things I've dropped
Please keep talking, never stop

Don't deny that you're afraid to go
Don't deny that you want to cry
Look around and watch your children grow
I feel love in every sigh
Pray for eternity to fly
Don't understand but how I try
If you're not scared, then why am I I feel love in every sigh
Pray for eternity to fly
Don't understand but how I try
If you're not scared, then why am I...

NASA: 'The world is not about to end. No, really'

NASA: 'The world is not about to end. No, really': We're getting so many reassurances from NASA these days that the world is not about to be destroyed by some space-borne phenomenon that I'm starting to wonder if there's something the space agency isn't telling us.

For You Nanna


Lyrics | Bread lyrics - Everything I Own lyrics



I would give everything up for just one more day.
I'm deeply sorry I wasn't there for you Nanna.
God how I miss you. 

I'm breaking.

Life

I needed a sign.
For whatever reason...I didn't get one.

Dalai Lama’s 18 rules for living

At the start of the new millennium the Dalai Lama apparently issued eighteen rules for living.

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

3. Follow the three Rs:
Respect for self
Respect for others
Responsibility for all your actions. 

4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

8. Spend some time alone every day.

9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.

15. Be gentle with the earth.

16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.

17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.

18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

SEAHAWKS WIN!!!

Oh ya baby! What a game that was!!!!  Woo Hoo!!!

Random Thought

Will the Seahawks prevail against the New Orleans Saints?  Tick Tock.  Time will tell.

HUGE GAME!!!

You can bet I'll be watching my Seahawks play division rivals St. Louis Rams tonight on prime time.  OH YA!  It's the final regular season game and it will decide who wins the division and goes on.  Can you get much better drama than that?  I don't think so!  If Seattle does win they would be tied with the Rams at 7-9 but we've won the head to head series so we would move on.  I believe this will be the first time in NFL history that a sub 500 team goes on to the playoffs.
