Smiles this week

I am forever grateful for the people I surround myself with in my life.  My friends and my family.
There have been some pretty lively discussions about recent voting that occured in North Carolina around here lately (hence my last blog post).  Many of you know that my brother is gay and incredibly happy with the person he has chosen to be with...and we all like him too.
As I read through the comments and the facebook posts about the vote the other day, I genuinely feel sorry for people who are gay and their family doesn't accept them.
My mother wrote a post about how proud she was of my brother and the person that he has become, regardless of his secual orientation. 
The support from friends and family was overwhelming.
When they decide to get married (because they are going to, we already know that is the intention) we are going to have one hell of a party in a state that allows that to happen.
And I honestly can't wait for that day to happen.
I understand that this is a "hot button" issue right now, but I honestly don't understand why it needs to be.  Who says that another person has the right to chose who someone else is going to be with for the rest of their lives?
And why shouldn't they be afforded the same benefits as any other couple in love?
I just don't get it.

On another note, hubby is working on the house this weekend with his father- which means that everything will be covered in a layer of plaster dust.
Hopefully by the end of it, the electricity in the whole downstairs will be rerun and we only need to deal with the upstairs....that's the plan anyway.

I am leaving work today and going and getting my hair cut and colored.  I was trying to hold off until after the end of the summer but I am in the need of a pick me up and I think this is going to be it.

This was a rambling, nonsensical post.  I hope that you are all doing well....sending hugs, love and lots of smiles to all of you.


  1. i got a hair cut today and will get it colored in 2 weeks. she didn't have time today or i would have done it then.

    i don't believe people choose who they're attacted to any more than we choose what color of skin or eyes that we have. what we have is what God gave us (and how He made us). it is not our place to judge the actions of others unless they're committing some kind of crime (like robbery, murder, etc.) and we're on the jury.

  2. This is a great post and I was so pleased to see your President come out in favour of Gay marriage. Now if only our PM was as progressive.
    Marriage should be available to those who want it.
    A hair cut is an excellent pick me up. Hope you have fun :)
