Why would I ever keep my hope in a jar? What good would that do?

Hiding under the covers, eating a cup of ice... can somebody turn op the heat?
Who decided that thinly cut strips of potatoes cooked in oil was "French"? Also, who decided that bread, mixed with milk, eggs and cinamon was "French"? I bet French people don't even like that crap.

How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.

-Oscar Wilde

When is it ever okay for someone to treat you like a regular person when you are clearly extraordinary? Why would you ever act like a regular person when you are clearly extraordinary?
Aaaaarrrrgggg... well Mr. Customer service man, what I would really like is my time back. Would you be able to help me with that please? Thank you very much.
My mother consistently warned me, "Say NO to drugs." But she never told me what to do when they don't listen.

I am so much more than just a pretty woman.

Look beyond my outer covering,
that's the only way you'll see the real me.

I would much rather be blessed with a blind man's love.
he who embraces blindness
even when he can see.

You make me more of myself.

And in return, I give you more of us.
"You know it's love when all you want is that person to be happy, even if you're not part of their happiness."
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

My Thalassemia

Beili Liu, who told you?

Who told you about my thalassemia?

Who told you that it was okay

for you to take it away

and put it on display

for the whole world to see?

That beta thalassemia belonged to me.

It was a gift from my grandmother

and like it or not

I was supposed to give it to my own daughter
in my will and against my will

It was our family heirloom

It was my little secret

I'd die before I'd ever loose it

But I didnt want to keep it

Beili Liu, thank you.

Stay focused on what's in front of you. You're destined to crash looking at life through the rearview.
You: It seems like everytime I turn around something bad happens or something goes wrong

Me: Well then, stop turning around

You can not read a book with your face buried in the pages

Your head will hide the light that allows you to see the words

and the extreme closeness distorts your vision

in order to see something as it really is

take a step back and observe it from a distance

Life is a volume of books that captures your story one day at a time. The problem with the book of life is the fact that as a character in the story, it's hard to see all aspects of the story and impossible to predict the end of the story. You go with the flow of life with no chance to take a moment and look at the way things are playing out. In order to understand what is going on in your story and possibly guide the story's destination, it is necessary to pause at the end of every chapter and review what has been written. Although it is impossible to go back and edit the mistakes, knowing the mistakes makes it that much easier to recognize forthcoming mistakes before it is too late. if you complete your story without taking time to read the beginning, chances are, many of the mistakes you made in the beginning will be repeated again and then again in the end.

It's funny how you thought making money would trump making a diference.

How Foolish.
Your breathing interrupts the silence
Keeping me from a steady sleep
Searching for a comfortable position
You move a lot
The best rest I've ever had
Just breathing the same air as you.
Ultimately, it's God that you will have to answer to.
Maybe He will be more understanding.
You're there whenever they need you. A helping hand, a listening ear, you are so much to so many people. I wonder who does that for you? Could I?
