July 4th

So I am sure that some of you have big plans for the 4th...and I would have to say that I am a little bit jealous.  And I really do mean a little bit.  In our world today we are laying low.  The Hubs is actually working for a few hours, Kid Clammy is going to play with Tia and I am going to enjoy a little bit of alone time before we settle in for some afternoon fun of who knows what and fireworks.  I would like to send a thank you to all Military past and present for all the sacrifices that you make for us and our country.  Thank you!!  I hope you all enjoy your holiday!!  I am looking forward to not having to go back to work until Monday!! Yeah me!!!

Quality vs. Quantity

The older that I get (and I am really not THAT old I just wish I could stay 30 forever), I realize more and more that quality wins almost always hands down over quantity.  I am sure that I am not the only one who realizes this.  But let me explain this in my life terms.  Mainly this is in regards to people in my life.  The more time goes by the more I realize that its okay if I don’t have a bazillion and one friends, but if I have a select few and I mean count them on one hand so to speak that I know 100% without a doubt I can count that is what matters.  The quality of these friendships is so wonderful that they simply last a lifetime.  Heck some of them began ein lementary school and some in adult hood but when they start doesn't matter.  What matters is they started.  No matter what life brings, where we live, who we marry, how many kids we have or how long it has been since we talked (a week, a day or two months) it doesn't matter.  I know that I can call any one of these friends, talk about anything, they will listen, give advice wanted or not, cry with me, laugh with me and not judge me.  They love me for me and that’s that.  These are way more important that the millionth and two friend who was just super sweet to your face and then turned around and blabbed all your business and then some to whoever walks by.  These quality friendships are the ones I want to nurture and grow and I look forward to seeing the journey that life takes us on.  Love you friends!!
