For Good

I am a firm believer that everyone, good and bad, comes into our lives for a reason. We are meant to learn from our relationships and grow as people. Relationships undeniably change but that doesn't mean they were for nothing. They all change us...for good.

I feel like a broken record but I LOVE GLEE. This is my favorite song from Wicked. The lyrics sum up the above. This is an edited, shorter version of the song but you get the idea...enjoy..

A Long Life

My momma is one of the best people I know. She is such a good person, saint-like really. She has such a good heart and always tries to do the right thing. I love to talk to her about things because she always gives me good advice, a good perspective.

We went out the other night for dinner and I was talking to her about getting married and how I stress about affording a nice wedding. I also told her how all my friends expect a big ring and I thought I did too but I'm not really sure if that matters to me She told me, "Liz, marriage is not about the ring or the party. If that's what you are focused on then you shouldn't be getting married. Marriage is about a long life together and if you love the person it shouldn't matter where you get married or how big your ring is. And remember it is a very long life." She went on further to explain where diamonds come from and it's true that people die and suffer to distribute diamonds. All that should matter is the love. That made me feel a lot better. She is right. I shouldn't stress about superficial things or care what others think. It doesn't matter.

She's always there to ground me, bring me back to reality and remind me what is important in life. People, not things. Love, not money. A long life together, not one day.

In you case you wanted to laugh today...

My heart has been heavy over the last few days as we lost a member of our family. Sydney was the kind of family member everyone wants. She was sweet, beautiful, always so happy to see you and loved her family unconditionally. She was happiest on your lap and had a special love for my mom. She was loyal and a bit sassy. She had a strut which told you she knew she was cute. But she wasn't always a girly girl. As my brother, Max and I can tell you from throwing toys back and forth she was a vicious competitor when she wanted to be. Molly will also tell you she wasn't one to messed be with, she let her know who was boss whenever Molly would try to steal her food.

It doesn't seem fair that these family members who often times bring us the most joy have such a short time here on earth. I think the truth's all they need to make a life changing impact. Sydney really got sick four years ago. You wouldn't have known that up until the last few months. She was such a little trooper. She was there for us in ways we could never explain to someone who didn't experience it. I believe her time to go was a few months ago but she knew we weren't ready. Maybe it was selfish of us but she bounced back a little and we couldn't bear to lose her. She fought and finally she had no fight left. She knew we were ready, we told her it was ok to go and she did.

I couldn't have asked for a better companion growing up. I love her more then words could ever explain and my heart hurts to know I will never see her again in this life. Dogs are the most selfless, loving creatures on earth which is why I know all dogs go to heaven..we will see her again....I love you my sweet, sweet Sydney girl..we will miss you..until we meet again...
