Happy Birthday Girlfriend

Today is my best friend in the worlds birthday.  We have been best friends since 4th grade.  That’s a long time.  She’s not only one of the most caring people I know, but also a great mother.  She has two daughters and the youngest was born just 4 weeks after my youngest.  The coolest part of that is her daughter and my son are best friends too.  Isn’t that just the sweetest thing?  I think so.

I was trying to decide what to get her for her birthday and decided the best thing I can do is to get her a Visa gift card.  That way, she can spend it how ever she wants.  She can go have her hair done, buy some new clothes for herself or take her girls out on the town and enjoy the day together if she wants.  I got her a nice card and mailed it so that she will get it this weekend and hopefully have a great weekend.  She already had some plans for today so that’s why I waited.


13 is my lucky number but not O.J.’s

There is a part of me that feels terribly sorry for O. J.  Simpson and then there’s the other part.  Here was a GREAT MAN who has turned into the worst example of a Sports (former) Hero there is.  He has thought for too long that he could get away with anything and everything but not this time.

I’m sure most everyone has heard about all the 13’s involved in his trial and his life in the past 13 years so I won’t go into all of them but it is quite a coincidence.  The funniest part to me is that 13 has always been my lucky number.  I guess it only works in good ways for some and obviously not in a good way for O. J.

I only hope and pray that his children do not have to suffer anymore.  They have paid the biggest price for all of the messes O. J. has created in the past 13 years.  Maybe 13 is their lucky number and now their father can’t make a fool of himself anymore and will humble himself and be the man he should have been for more than just the past 13 years.  We can only hope and pray for the children’s sake.
