My News....

Hello dear world

Good evening everyone. I just wanted to pop in and share some news with you. Today I didn't have to go into work because I had to use my floating holiday.

Speaking of floating today since I didn't have to work I did go for the first time to my eight year old niece's swim practice at the recreation center behind my work with my mom. My other niece had to go to the doctor since she was feeling ill and it turns out that she has a virus and she is working on getting better. Anywho...my eight year old niece is quite the swimmer and she will be trying out for the swim team tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed.

I did want to tell you my dear world that on Saturday June 21 my neighborhood will be having a block party on a street known as the Windy Hill Court Cul-De-Sac which is located on Windy Hill Ct. and Collier Road in Riverdale, Georgia. The party will be from 2pm to 6pm. We will be having music, hot dogs and hamburgers and lots of fun. Our Clayton County Police Chief and our Clayton County Fire Chief will be there as well. I and my family will be there and I will be hosting the party which I have NEVER done before.

In other news Phil of "It Is What It Is" recently shared his thoughts on a subject that I totally agreed with. In California recently a law was struck down which has prevented marriage between people of the same sex. I have to say that I am proud that the law was struck down. I feel that if two people can find love in this world it should not be treated as if it were a crime. I think that Phil was right when he said that tolerance and acceptance should be a part of our society. I feel that it would totally be wrong of me telling anyone who to love or who NOT to love. I am always happy to see people finding one another and falling gloriously in love with each other so I feel that this law that was struck down shows just how far we have come as a nation and as human beings. With all of the crime and violence we often see on the news or hear on the radio it is nice to see that love wins over all and I truly feel that is a great thing.

I have a quote to share with you :

"For every beauty, there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth, there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love, there is a heart somewhere to receive it." - Ivan Panin

So my dear world how are you these days ??? I do hope that you are all well. I would like to say that we should continue to keep Helen's husband in our thoughts and prayers since he has been ill and in the hospital. That's all for now my dear world.

Good-night
