So last night, I rented the movie, Obsessed so my Mom could watch it. I knew this would be one of those movies - where she would scream at the tv telling then how its done. And sure enough - she did just that! Gave it to them good.LOL I think that's what I like about a movie. You can get absorbed into it without even realizing it. I mean it doesn't take much to please me (in the way of movies). I love a story where I can get lost for 1.5-2 hours and forget everything real. I think that's why I love reading so much too. It's the easiest escape you can get. And it also perks your curiosity. Tonight I'm going to watch When in Rome, yes I will probably love the story but its more for the scenery. I can't afford a trip to Italy right now but I can be transplanted there in my mind for one night watching a movie. Not too bad I say for $9. LOL

Writing from the Beach

Ahhh the beach... The one place that always makes sense to me. Doesn't everyone have one of those special places? Mine has always been the beach. Growing up a beach bum, it was the place! I fell in love with sand, snorkeling, surfing, boys, (my first romantic kiss), and most importantly peace. It's also the place now that I feel the closest to my dad. He is one with that ocean. I like to believe that the inner quiet I feel sitting watching the waves roll in is because he is closer to me at that moment then ever since he's been gone. I close my eyes and I can see him, feel him and hear him - telling "Missy, everything will be alright". It's so magical ~ that today I sit here never wanting to go back to my reality. I want to stay looking out at the ocean, feeling the sand between my toes and the calm forever. No one chasing me down for money, no stress, no worry - just me and that ocean.

~ My Friends ~

Sometimes it's nice to stop and remember how lucky I am to have fantastic friends! Each, in their own uniqueness, makes my life a better life. I am blessed to be surrounded by strong women, who will love to their fullest but still know who they are at the end of the day! Men who are kind and gentle, who let their guards down to show you how amazing they are in any situation. They are all there with a shoulder for my bad days and a smile for my good ones. A lil' laugh for my sillyness and a cry for my pain. Time passes and we can take things for granted, I just hope I never take for granted the amazing people I have surrounding me.
