Hello, My Name is Susan

Why homework & my brain haven’t mixed too well.

Posted on: January 20, 2010

I’m still around but I’ve been making this english class alot harder than I should.  I’ve been letting myself become intimidated by the 20 yr gap in school & really, I shouldn’t have.  I can do this!  But, I’ll still be absent a bit longer cause trying to make my brain come up w/ my next essay is not fun.  I have too many ideas & not enough to go on to actually make it seem like a coherent recollection.  *shrug*  I’ll be back, I promise & I’m working towards being done by Thursday night (not due until Friday pm) so that I can play Aloha Friday!

I did want to leave y’all w/ something that my aunt sent me.  This just really hit home w/ me.

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born.

A Death Certificate shows that we died.
Pictures show that we lived!
Have a seat . . . Relax . . .. And read this slowly…
I Believe….
That just because two people argue, that
doesn’t mean they don’t love each other.
And just because they don’t argue, that
doesn’t mean they do love each other.
I Believe…
That sometimes when I’m angry
I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
I Believe…
That we don’t have to change friends
if we understand that friends change.
I Believe…
That no matter how good a friend is,
they’re going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.
I Believe…
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
I Believe…
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.
I Believe…
That it’s taking me a long time
to become the person I want to be.
I Believe…
That you should always leave loved ones
with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
I Believe…
That you can keep going long after you think you can’t.
I Believe…
That we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.
I Believe…
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I Believe….
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done,
when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I Believe….
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.
I Believe….
That my best friend and I can do anything, or nothing,
and have the best time.
I Believe…
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you,
when you’re down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
I Believe…
That maturity has more to do with
what types of experiences you’ve had,
and what you’ve learned from them…
and less to do with how many
birthdays you’ve celebrated.
I Believe…
That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I Believe…
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn’t stop for your grief.
I Believe…
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are,
but we are responsible for who we become.
I Believe…
That you shouldn’t be so eager to find
out a secret.
It could change your life forever.
I Believe…..
Two people can look at the exact same
thing and see something totally different.
I Believe…
That your life can be changed in a matter of
hours by people who don’t even know you.
I Believe…
That even when you think you have no more to give,
if a friend cries out to you..
you will find the strength to help.
I Believe…
That credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.
I Believe…
That the people you care about most in life
are taken from you too soon..
I Believe….
That you should send this to all of the people that you believe in.
I just did.
I believe..
The happiest of people don’t necessarily
have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything.
Thank you God for all the wonderful people
who help us throughout the journey of life…

Can I tell you I am so proud of you hanging in there with your school. I know how hard it is to go back and start stretching your brain in ways it’s not used to. But don’t even consider the 20 year break just think this is another turn in your life and you are taking it with grace and strength. I love you and thanks for sharing that poem. I loved it.

Love you,

This was a great poem. And a great reminder.

Thank you so much..this is just what I needed. Hang in there

Very nice poem!

And your essay is going to kick some serious butt! (please don’t tell my kids I said “butt”)

I think it’s so great that you went back to school and I know you’ll do very well! Hang in there!

I just didn’t get an opportunity to reply to all of you but thank you so much! I’ve been reading my team mates (we’ve been divided into teams for the class) work & I’m a little intimidated & yet a little relieved. Does that make sense? The really weird thing is that I never had problems w/ English back when I was a kid; I just didn’t do it!

Oh & Skipper? I could never tell your kids that! You have too much dirt on me! lol
