Happy New Year!



My plans for this evening? Well, I had a nice dinner with my mom, and then we both went to get a good rubdown (aka massage and reflexology). Been feeling under the weather this week, so laying low tonight. Now I'm bundled up in my bed watching the delayed broadcast of Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve with my laptop on my lap. My ideal way to spend New Year's Eve? No, but kind of par for the course to cap off 2009.

I hope all of you have a gorgeous night! Wishing you a health, love and indescribable joy in 2010 and beyond!

Maybe I'll Be The One...

"Maybe I'll be the one that doesn't get burnt."

I saw this quote scrolling through all of my Google Reader subscriptions (that I'm waaaaay behind on reading) this morning. A one line entry....that caught my attention. Because really, isn't this the sentence that runs constantly in the back of our minds when we embark on a new journey where our gut is telling us to change course but our head is trying desperately to convince our "voice" otherwise?

"Maybe I'll be the one that doesn't get burnt."

This was running through my head when I took on a new opportunity last year. The track record wasn't good. Those before me did not conquer the obstacle in the road. But I was SuperChick, and I could handle anything. Which I could and could have - had I chosen to play the game. But I was tired of playing the game before I even got to it and convinced myself that by playing the game according to the rules and the way it should be played that "maybe I'll be the one that doesn't get burnt" and can change the course of the game.

How did that turn out?

I am no longer playing the game. This chick was voted off the island.

Now there is something else happening in my life...just starting...just barely becoming anything...exciting...fun...risky. And this is the phrase that caught my attention...this morning.

"Maybe I'll be the one that doesn't get burnt."

Coincidence? Nothing happens by coincidence....

Coming Home Part Deux...The Music Video

Again, can't even begin to describe the emotions watching this one. I recognize the footage from being at a concert or two featured in the video. 2009 was definitely a "Coming Home" in more ways than one. Thank you Donnie, Danny, Jordan, Jon and Joe for setting my homecoming to music. I will never forget it.

Coming Home...

I promise I'll write a post about my own NKOTB story. I need to find the right way to express it because it will be one of the most personal posts I'll write. So until then, I'll just share little tidbits...like how I felt when I saw this trailer yesterday for the first time:

It's been over a year now since those boys announced their return and resurrected the fangirl in every single one of us Million Sisters who have come together to welcome back the Five Brothers from Boston. How very quickly I think we have started to take for granted what we have been given...how very fortunate we all are to have this opportunity to once again experience out loud the love that never really went away. At times even I have taken for granted how lucky I am to have had the experiences I did with those boys in these last months...personal experiences. It isn't hard to take it for granted when they all have been so interactive with us...giving us access to them in ways we never could have imagined possible back in the day. Technology has made becoming jaded a much faster reality than it did when Donnie, Danny, Jordan, Jon and Joe conquered the music world the first time around.

But yesterday those first few notes danced across the keyboard through my speakers ...the lights flashed across the stage on my computer screen... and I am immediately transported back to that first moment when I saw them return to the stage together. "After all these years, is this really happening? Are they really together? Am I really here?"

Then I look at my pictures, and I remember the hugs and the eyes that smiled back at me when I looked into them, and I realize every time we all came together to celebrate each other, that we were all Coming Home. And I am grateful.

The Seven Wonders of the World






Junior high school students in Chicago were
studying the Seven Wonders of the World. At
the end of the lesson, the students were asked
to list what they considered to be the Seven
Wonders of the World. Though there was some
disagreement, the following received the
most votes:

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. The Taj Mahal in India
3. The Grand Canyon in Arizona
4. The Panama Canal
5. The Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The quiet girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many." The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help."

The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:

1. to touch...
2. to taste...
3. to see...
4. to hear... (She hesitated a little, and then added...)
5. to feel...
6. to laugh...
7. and to love.

The room was so quiet, you could have heard a pin drop.

May this story serve as a gentle reminder to all of us that the things we overlook as simple and ordinary are often the most wonderful - and we don't have to travel anywhere special to experience them.

Enjoy your gifts!
