Just got the Letter “L” given to me bybeloved_juno  …here goes! I LIKE this letter.

The letter meme. This is how it works. Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation as to what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.

Love: First, and most important as far as I am concerned. There are many categories of love in this glorious world we live in.

  • The “romantic” love category:  I am pretty private about this in my journal. It’s been a struggle for me to feel safe to love for someone due to having compartmentalized that part of my heart for many years. True friendship and trust has opened me up and bit and has been a real inspiration in my life. I can’t deny that. No way…no how. A brilliant sonrisa doesn’t hurt either. Sonrisa=smile. And THAT is the most I will EVER say about THAT.
  • Love in general: Love is one of those things that you can decide to give to others when you wake up each day. I give “love” to the guy down the street when he looks up and needs a friendly hello to brighten his day…or the elderly ldy on the bus that no man…*grumble*…has the courtesy to stand up for…or the person I really don’t get along with whom I choose to do a good dead for just because I see no harm in it.

Linda: This is my roommate! She is like a sister to me and I LOVE her dearly. We met at work a couple of years ago and became roommates a few months later. We have rented two houses together, but she is moving out in late August. She will always be a special part of my life. She’s family!

Light: I love the way light reflects off of caramel colored skin. I love the way light plays on the walls of my room when it shines in on my dark pink canopy and bedspread. I love the way I can play with light when I take photographs. Light can illuminate things is very beautiful ways, you just have to be looking with the right eyes.

I sometimes long to be hugged so much that I feel like I could burst. I often long for a hot cup of tea and some dark chocolate. I long to be able to travel more often and spend more time out in nature. I long to see my family back East. I currently long to be home in my comfy bed.

Lines: I don’t mind waiting in lines most of the time. If you have someone to wait with, be silly with and have secret conversations with it can be lots of fun. What I hate about lines is when some jerk feels they can take cuts. grrrr

Luncheon: In my position as Interim Executive Director of WYSE, my biggest responsibility has been the 9th Annual Role Model of the Year Awards Luncheon. It was this past Sunday. It was a lot of work but it went very well and we raised twice as much as I thought we would.

Leadership: Youth leadership development has been part of my professional expertise for many years now. I believe that I am a natural leader and I am the type of leader who is not afraid to get my hands dirty…so…to…speak. I tend to be the one in meeting who takes on all the tasks no one volunteers for and I get things done! I am also good at gathering others to help.

Live Journal: Duh! *LOL* I have been keeping a Live Journal for a couple of years now. It was originally used to give updates to friends and family, but now that more people read it I email friends and family and use this as mostly a place to vent or keep information that is important to me. It’s also a good place to meet online folks with similar interests since I hate chat rooms.


Low Cut Jeans: I must admit that I do like the way low cut hip hugging jeans flatter my figure. I am slim…so would say skinny, but baby got back and a nice belly too. Not bad for a 37 year old mom. Hehe


Lollipops: I really like Lollipops. I buy them often and usually have one or two in my bag. The only thing that stops me from eating them is that people think: a) you look like a little girl eating one or b) you look like a “nasty girl” sucking on a sticky ball with a stick.

  1. Awesome. You already gave me “Z,” so no need to give me a letter. *LMAO*

    Ugh… chat rooms. A distant memory, and one not missed in the least. I far prefer to meet new net friends through someplace like Live Journal as well.
