A Deeper Meaning
Saturday, November 8, 2008
No matter your religious beliefs, I think there are times we all believe there are deeper meanings to life. As a Christian, I obviously belief that God works together everything for his glory and honor. I don't believe anything just happens. But, I can't say I always understand it. A year later, I still can't make sense of all I went through last year with the cancer and loosing my job.

But today, I was reminded of something that happened about 2 or 3 years ago. I had no idea then why it happened, and today, still unsure. Either way, it made me smile again.

Madison was in the chorus at her old school, and had a spring concert at the local middle school. Several schools were there, so the crowd was pretty large. A young mother sat behind us with a baby in her lap...he must have been close to a year old. While we were waiting for the concert to start he kept playing with my hair, and tapping me on the shoulder. It was rather odd, for such a young child to just keep tapping me. When I would turn around and talk with him, he would just laugh. Then after the 5th or 6th time, he reached out for me. So with his mom's permission I held Nehemiah.

He sat in my lap the entire 1st half of the concert. He held on tight to me, making sure I wouldn't put him down, and just kept loving on me. He also did not like Damian very much. When Damian would turn and look at us, he would say "No" and push Damian over, which made me laugh.

Madi's class was finished in the first half, so we were planning to leave during the intermission. When I went to give Nehemiah back to his mom, he just cried and cried. He didn't want to go back. It didn't make any sense. His mother seemed loving to him...she had been playing with him and holding him before he came to me. He was well dressed, and seemed well cared for. For whatever reason, it was just as if there was a connection between us. (Trust me, its not normal for me to just let a strangers baby drool all over me, with me being grossed out.)

I never saw or heard from Nehemiah or his mom again. Until today. Damian just called, and he is at the barber shop. He said this little guy walked in and started playing with him. He asked his name, and his mom said Nehemiah...and Damian realized who he was. Nehemiah's mom remembered me also. She asked about me, and Damian promised to take a picture and send me. (I'll post it as soon as he does.)

I still don't know why I met Nehemiah that day. I don't know why we were drawn to each other, and, I don't know why Damian ran into them again today. I can't wait to see who Nehemiah becomes as he grows up, and I just hope I'm able to know him then.

Go Hotwire!
No, this isn't a paid post...I haven't been paid to write on this thing in a long time! But I have to tell you my hotwire experience. We have been trying to find hotels for Damian's family the week of the wedding. They will be staying in Atlanta, because they have family there, and come down on Saturday for the wedding. This is great for me, because it means they won't stay too long. (he he)

No really, the only reason I was worried about that is because Damian's aunt called and said she was not content just seeing us for 2 hours at a reception, so we better plan to stay and visit afterwards. I was concerned that the visit would turn into an all night event and Damian and I would have to head straight to the airport the next morning, never having been to our hotel. So, knowing that they have an hour and a half drive after the wedding makes me think they won't stay too late.

Back to Hotwire (hense the title). Damian's grandmother called me yesterday, and told me she booked the Weston Hotel for $49/night on hotwire! These rooms are in downtown Atlanta, and usually rent for $215/night. Now, I for one have always been hesitant about Hotwire because they don't tell you the name of the hotel until you pay. But Damian's grandmother figured, you can't go wrong with a 4-star hotel so she took the leap of faith. The cool thing is now the rest of the family booked too. What an awesome deal!

So I'm going online today to see if I can get us just as awesome of a deal without having to stay at the same hotel. Cross your fingers!

An Award? For Me!?
Wednesday, November 5, 2008

Thanks to Courtney for this award. Like I told her, I can't say I feel as if I deserve it since I have been terrible to the blogging community. Blogging randomly, and hardly ever commenting. Well, I will try to do better from here on out. I promise!
As a result of my lack of posting, and commenting, I can only say I have 2 faithful readers these days...and Courtney is one of them. (LOL), so I can only grant this award to ....(drum roll please)........none other than Prin! Congratulations!
Okay, now the truth...it has been so long since I've gotten an award, we will see how long it takes me to figure out how to display it on my page :)

I am in mourning
It is no secret that I was strongly against Obama. We fought. We lost. We shall mourn, and then we shall stand up and move on with the rest of the country.

All I can do is hope I was wrong about Obama. For the sake of this country, I pray I was wrong.
