8. Someone you miss, who they were to you and why you miss them.

3 Sep

Momma Lisa

“I admit I’m not going to give the date because part of me forgot it on purpose because that other part doesn’t want to remember it exactly. In my mind, she’s not gone. When you swim in the ocean, you’re swimming with her. Her ashes were spread into the Colorado River and from there, her adventure began. Back to Hawaii and all of her other favorite places by the sea. Sirius Black did say it best, for those that love us never truly leave us. This was taken in Colorado and given to me by Cheyenne, because its one of my favorites. It’s also the original.
I guess I’m not ready to move on or something like that, but that’s fine with me. I don’t want to yet. I hope your project goes well, Amanda. Sorry for the rambling. Love ya.”
Written by a good friend of mine whom also knew her. Emilie Lyles

So, I’ve had this thing in my drafts all week. Every time I start to write I cry to much to finish. Nothing I say seems to do justice for this woman. She was like my mother, Momma Lisa, forever. She was a mother to a lot of people. To some of us, she was the only place to go when you knew there was no one to talk to, because no matter what there was always her. She listened to me as I sobbed and told her about how badly I was treated at school when I was a sophomore at Brenham High. She listened as I told her how badly I was treated at home by my father. She was just always there. She was my own personal Jimmany Cricket. Here’s why: About 3/4 of the way through my sophomore year I was so distraught and broken from the treatment I was getting that I wanted to kill myself. I told her that and this is what she said: “It would kill me if you were no longer here with us Amanda.” And that’s all it took, knowing that I’d disappoint her and that she would miss me. Obviously I didn’t go through with it, and that’s all thanks to this wonderfully amazing woman. She was kind and caring, always tried to make you laugh. She was an amazing listener and like I said earlier, a mother to me. I wouldn’t be on this planet if it wasn’t for that woman. I wouldn’t have made it through my sophomore classes without her. She always pushed and encouraged me to do my best. I will always love and miss her greatly.

You are forever loved by many!


7. Your opinion on cheating on people.

28 Aug

To be honest, I used to be a cheater. I had little to know problems with it and could rationalize doing it because it was with someone I had been in love with. But Jake… he makes me want to be a better person! He makes me want to never hurt him. I want to do everything I can to make him happy. I want him and only him. But if he ever cheated on me… it’d be done.. despite how broken and lost I’d be without him. I don’t tolerate that. If I’m going to keep from cheating, the man I’m with better also.

6. The person you like and why you like them.

27 Aug

Jakob Glen Thomas Henson.

He’s the most amazing man I have ever met. I am head over heels for this man. He’s funny and smart and always joking around with me, but can be serious as well. He tells me how much he cares about me and about the thoughts he has. He’s amazing with my daughter! Which is the biggest thing to be honest. He’s active, but is understanding of the Multiple Sclerosis and doesn’t make me push it. He cares enough to ask how I’m doing and how my day is going, as well as how Lily is doing. There is so much more about him, but my fingers are going numb from all these posts I’m doing tonight to catch up. xP

5. 5 things that irritate you about the opposite sex/same sex.

27 Aug


1. B.O.
2. Ego
3. Lack of tidiness
4. Lack of personal hygiene
5. Lack of personal drive


1. Ego
2. Stupidity
3. Pretending to be stupid
4. Being full of yourself
5. HAVING to wear make-up

Disclaimer: I realize not everyone is like this and that these traits are not found in only one gender, but these are the genders I see them in most.

4. What you wear to bed.

26 Aug

Honestly… just underwear. Bras are constricting, shirts choke me and I’m usually too hot for pants or shorts. So it’s just underwear for me, kinda dirty, but true. If I had any less privacy I’d probably deal with a night gown, but since that isn’t the case… -shrugs-

3. What kind of person attracts you.

26 Aug

He must be the following things: Nerdy, Smart, Funny and Affectionate. My boyfriend seems to be all those things and then some! He really is amazing. He’s caring and affectionate, constantly making me laugh, way smarter than he acts and as much of a nerd as I am! I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have him in my life.

2. How have you changed in the past 2 years?

24 Aug

In the past two years I have changed a lot! I’ve gone from a girl that was unreliable and angry at the world, into a woman who is responsible and a damn good mother. I’m not angry at the world anymore for the things that I have no control over. (I have bipolar and Multiple Sclerosis) I take each day in stride and I’m allowing myself to be happy, finally. I have a steady job, I provide for my daughter, while paying my bills at the same time! I’ve grown up so much! Having a baby does that to a person though. I don’t think I’d be like this without her. I realized I had to grow up for her, as well as myself. I keep my room clean now, do my own laundry and cook my own food! (Despite living with 8 other family members!) I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished and hope to accomplish more!


Don't Cry, Laugh.

Peace be upon you!

Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile throught the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason. Unknown
