i love Audrey Hepburn. I think she is so beautiful and I love her movies and her characters. I have several of her books talking about her life :)
Today i woke up and the sun was shinning and its abit cloudy so i don't know if that means it will get really cloudy and rain or if the sun will come out... either way its going to be a great day.
my dog is sitting right next to me with his feet under my arm chewing on a ball :) he's so cute. he always has a ball with him wherever he goes.
Morning brings light as night must fade
Light brings growth which replaces the shame
Growth brings strength to walk away from all pain
And Strength is our Peace because it lights the way.
"This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
I just heard the phone ring and I thought, oh no that might be work asking me to come in. But alas... no it wasn't. :) Everything is 11 to me at the moment, 1:11, 11 hours, 11 emails, 11 degrees, 11 dollars. 11 is said to mean transition and so i had this thought the other day that maybe 11 ... 2011 will be a year of fulfilled promises, those things that people have been ''transitioning'' into will come to pass in 2011. God is good all the time, this I know.
A Little Story
It was a sunny day , i was just arriving in this small town called Stonewood, it was just north of Charlestown. Did I mention it was sunny and blistery hot. You see I'm from New York. I'd been ''invited'' to visit our family, i say ''invited'' because it was more like forced. I was the youngest and all my older brothers had long moved out of home and my parents were, well they were intellectuals and ran a very important business in New York so they thought it would be fun if I spent the summer with our family. Suddenly they were our family, these people that I had never met, or even heard of. Why they agreed to take me I was still to find out, I didn't even know what they looked like but I guess I was about to find out.
Because of the size Stonewood, population 625, there was no planes that flew in so my journey here from New York looked something like this... plane out of New York to Charlestown, then bus 3 hours to some place then train 2 hours to Stonewood. So when I got off the train I was smothered in hot wind and the stench of coal, I looked out at the faces waiting, and suddenly thought, "How do they even know what I look like." i just wanted to shrink back onto the train and dissapear, but all the pushing and shoving from the people behind me was making my little day dream near impossible. I'd been told that my Uncle Simeon and Aunt Catherine would be waiting for me but there were about 15 people that could be Uncle Simeone and Aunt Catherine. So I just decided that I would just keep moving and go and collect my bags and they might find me there. I made my way into the baggage claim area and just waited, secretly hoping this was just a bad dream and that I would soon wake up back in my bed in New York, why had I agreed to this? "Eliza McGregor, sweet girl, my how you've grown, you're a little lady now." I turned to see two strangers smiling at me, they walked up and both gave me a big hug. There faces were warm and friendly, I was so tired that to see their faces made something inside me just relax. I smiled back and told them it was nice to meet them. We got my stuff and were on our way, they informed me they lived out abit from the town so we had about a 40 minute drive. More travelling I thought, but I didn't mind aslong as their car had airconditioning.
So that last thought about airconditioning, who was i kidding, we are in the middle of nowhere, why would they have airconditioning, they opened all the windows and let the hot wind blow.
