The Simple Things In Life

Dear Journal,

I was at Barnes and Nobles a couple of weeks ago Christmas shopping for someone, when I stumbled upon a book. Bored as I was, I thumbed through it reading random passages. One caught my attention because it was heart warming and I loved the quote the author had.

She was writing about gifts her friends have given and what they represent …..

The real treasures are the people who gave them to me. As much as I enjoy and appreciate every single memento, I value what they represent more. Their gifts say that these lovely people love me. In the midst of their busy lives, they think of me. They’ve made the effort to know me, to reach out to me, to make memories with me–not out of duty or familiar fate, but because they chose me. They chose me to be their friend.

Sometimes the best presents are the ones we never think of … sometimes they’re the simplest things … and sometimes they’re staring you right in the face.

Anyways, I was reading a post online … just browsing when I saw a one about Life Lessons of a Stubborn Child. It talked about people not being perfect, that we all have flaws within us.

But it sometimes takes a brave soul to let your friends know about them, so they can better themselves.  It may be hard to tell the other person because of what may happen, but they’ll ultimately be grateful that you because they know in their heart that you were trying to help them.

So my sister called me today letting me know they were in New Mexico, that they went to see a desert with white sands .. or something similar to that. She was calling from the motel and said she felt like they were in the 70’s.

They sound like they’re having a decent time, but she was saying that time feels like it’s passing slowly. So I guess the trip isn’t going all as planned.

It’ll be nice to see them once they get back though … well hopefully before 2008 ends though.

Quotes Of The Day

- "In the end, every relationship needs maintenance …Whether it’s the smallest gesture …or just picking up back where you left off. The bottom line is that if you care about someone, it’s pretty easy to make the sacrifice."
