Pray for Me

I've got a week to figure out what I'm going to say, but I'm probably going to end up putting my foot in my mouth. Let me explain:

My cousin (19) precipitously moved out from home. He's been fighting against the rules for years and decided he's just had it. I got a report of the breaking point from his mom, and I think he overreacted, but I think my grandmother also overreacted. And I'm going to say something about it. If the subject comes up, I'll say it then, otherwise, I'm going to do it before we come home.

So, pray that I may have the strength to do so. Pray also that I can say it in a way that reflects the love I have for this family and the desire I have that we not tear ourselves apart.

Conspiracies Abound

No, I'm not talking about Valerie Plame.
And if you don't know who that is, go google it.

I'm talking about Christmas. I love Christmas, but I also enjoy the whole game of picking the right present and keeping it a secret until Christmas day. I won't say any more, for fear of giving it away, but I just got involved in helping someone I know keep a present a secret from (obviously) someone else I know. Look, I'm even keeping gender out of it. But this way, I get to talk about it without giving it away.

That's it!

Okay, I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while.

Anyhow, for those of you reading, I'm going to change the comments settings because of stupid spam. So, yes, you will have to go through the word verification thingie.

More news later.
