My father has a court date on November 9, 2004. He has been arrested for molesting my 10 year old neice. This all started after my older sister's house burnt down. My sister and her kids moved in until they found a new home. My neice told my sister about the molesting after she had overheard a conversation with my baby sister. My baby sister had just came over to tell my oldest sister about my father who had beaten her in one of his rages. She said she was going to have him arrested, so my neice...

First of all, I would totally freak out. I would have to cut my hair, shave, and buy some clothes. When I was girl I had to make sure my hair was fixed, my makeup was on, I smelled good, my clothes matched, and my body was shaved in all the right areas. Being a man I could jump in the shower or not, put on some clothes, comb my hair, brush my teeth, put on deodorant, shave, and be out the door. If I woke up as a guy none of my physical stature would be the same. Second, my whole way of thinking ...

School can be a big scary place, but it can also be fun and exciting. It will be crowded, noisey, and huge. You will get to learn new things, go on field trips, play outside, and go the the library for story time. You will have a new teacher this year so be nice, listen, and don't get into trouble. Your teacher is there to help you with any problems you are having. If someone starts bullying you tell a teacher. Friends are always nice to have around. You make and loose new friends daily, so don'...

A year ago I brought home a miniature Chihuahua. She was only 8 weeks old and fit in the palm of my hand. I named her Baby Ruth because she was chocolate brown in four different tones. I really never liked dogs until I saw a picture of her and instantly fell in love. My friend at work was selling her and 2 of her sisters. I paid two hundred fifty dollars and she was worth every last cent. She filled my heart with joy. Baby was easy to house break and she loved sleeping next to me at night. I was...

I decided after 10 years in the work force I would return to school. It was not a hard decision to make because I had already made up my mind about it. It was however hard to quite my job of 10 years and leave my work family. I had to give up alot just so I would get to go to school. I had to give up a steady paycheck, health insurance, and putting money into my 401K plan. I had to convince myself to do this by quitting work without thinking about the consequences, and by moving out of state thi...

My inner critic is always there waiting to emerge and cause problems for me. She always seems to speak her mind about anything that is bothering her about me, or if I've done something wrong. When my inner critic comes out she is sarcastic, alundt, and moody. She's always there to tell me how stupid, lazy, and what a big baby I am. In some instancess, she is there to calm me down and encourage me when I need it. She can be funny at times and make me cry at others. Sometimes I listen to her, but ...

Like for instant, being a student can be hard, especially after being out of school 10 years. I just now started back to school after being in the work force 10 years. I started going to college, so I could have a career that made me happy. I want ot get my Counselor degree, so I can help anyone who may need it. Second, I am a sister to 3 siste...

Let me tell you what I did last August. I took a short trip to Arkansas this weekend to see my parents. I left right after school on Friday. It took 9 hours to get to the small town where I was raised as a child. The reason for the trip was my 10 year reunion for high school. I also moved more of my stuff back with me. The reunion was saturday at a club called Varsity Grill. To get ready for the event I went to get a haircut and highlights. I also got a neutral outfit together, not to fancy and ...

I believe in the one true God. The one who created this earth we live on. The one who allows us free will. The God who watches over us every day and second. He knows the number of hairs on your head. He knows your future before you do. He just allows us to follow our own path to our destinations. He is always there for you. He listens to your worries and fears, however he can alleviate them if you just ask. He is my rock, my fortress,and my life. When I faced life on my own without his help I fa...

I went and bought a new member of the family two weeks ago. I purchased my new friend at a fundraiser auction for my neices school. My new friend is a female cockatiel. I named her Lou-Lou. She can say hello and good morning. The other day I was whistling at her and she "cat called" back at me. She loves watching T.V and listening to the radio. My sister went and bought a male parakeet last weekend to be her companion. He sings to her and she sings back. We named him Rossco. They love to look ou...

My father wants to try and work things out. All my siblings support my mothers decision, so my father is angry with us. My father had a deep dark secret in his life. He never told my mother about it. When I was eighteen it came to light and my mom decided to stay with him then. Last year it stuck its ugly head out again an...

"Touched by An Angel"

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love co...

It's been almost a year now since I quite my job of ten years. I decided it was time to finally go to college. I am trying to get a degree in Counseling.
It has become difficult in many ways. I don't have a steady income like before or health insurance. I live with my sister and her family. My sister and brother-
in-law support me. I feel like I am a big mooch. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't of had this opportunity. I am very grateful to both of them. I hope everything works
out in the fut...
