I was up last night at 3am due to my little one being sick. So I was sitting holding him while he was drifting off to sleep and I decided to watch TV, let me tell ya there is nothing on at 3am! So I stopped on a movie called Crossroads...yes the Britney Spears movie! Anyway, so I decided to see just how bad this movie was. As I sat there watching this film I started to wonder about this poor child and her life...well I guess poor I should not say...but on to the point. My question is: How good of a friend are you? If your best friend was Britney Spears would you have stood by your friend? Would you have been there for her no matter what? Even though everyone around the world thought she was in trouble and losing her mind and making fun of her? Or what if your best friend stole money from your church, because she had no money for bills. Everyone in the church found out she was the one that stole the money, and they would have nothing to do with her. Would you still be her friend? Does she get a second chance to redeem herself? Or does that friend get left out in the cold? What about Britney Spears, does she get a second chance? She has been trying to get things back together in her life, does that count? Or are we programmed to just give up on people once they have done things that have brought embarrassment and shame upon themselves? I have lost friends in my past over very stupid situations. We have all since then forgiven each other about the silly reasons for loss of friendship, but the relationships were never the same. But ever since the fighting between friends disrupted my life and losing my best friend to a car accident. I have promised myself to stand by friends no matter what insanity follows....specially if that friend was a family member...Life is way to short to be wasted on labeling people as not being good enough to be my friend! So again...How good of a friend are you? Do you stand by your friends no matter what?
On the family side: As you have read my youngest Sebastian is sick with a terrible cold with a stuffy nose and cough, hoping he does not end up with an ear infection! Tristan is talking so much more clearer these days. He was one of those that was hooked on his pacifier until a few months ago. Ever since we got rid of it his speech is getting more clearer everyday! Last night Preston was sharing all that he is learning in school and was very excited about it. Preston is very smart and will go far in life..as long as he will sit still long enough to pay attention! Kiersten had a blast yesterday at the home-school group gathering. Her class cooked and learn how to milk a cow and had some discussions about the book they are reading Farmers Boy. Terry is tired of working and wants a vacation...I told him join the crowed..Oh yea and my hubby jumped in the shower with me the other day...just to piss me off ..lol..(see post do you shower with your lover)...And my sister-in-law called and is getting excited about her little ones first official Halloween, which my kids keep asking when they are getting customs...I'm like...when we have the money! LOL Geez, all this means is Christmas will be here soon and I have to go spend money on gifts instead of a vacation ;) Have a great day all!
