Two years of joy
Two years of love
Intense and profound
There's no one else
I would have done it with
No one else
Who could have made it worth my while
Through the ups and the downs
The Laughter and the Tears
Thanks for putting up with me
You'll always be my best.
I ponder not over the rest
We'll do it one day at a time
I pray for long life for us both
And for a home filled with laughter
I love you, Boo!

Once upon a loving

I once was in love with a man
Nought he did could be wrong
I could be huffing and puffing
With his smile I'd lose the heat
I once was in love with a man
At the touch of his hands
All my troubles seemed to melt
And the sorrows would crumble too
I once was in love with a man
He made my heart skip beats
He could set this heart afflutter
With just a little whisper
I once was in love with a man
He said I was the fairest of them all
He promised to hold my heart dear
But he squeezed it too tight...

This has nothing to do with the movie and it is not a review so sorry if I misled you. Lately, I have been feeling as if I was in a twilight zone. It is not necessarily a bad thing. It just feels quite surreal. First of all, I have never really a attended a church outside of Ghana where everyone refers to the other person as "sister-this-or-that" and "brother-so-and-so"! Seriously! I am not even complaining about it but barely stating the reality. At first I did not really know what to think of it. It just sounded weird to hear someone call me "sister Maxine" as if I was a nun. That's exactly what it reminded me of! Maybe I had joined a convent without knowing? The church is a very lovely place and everyone seems so nice and friendly (well most people) but I don't really want to be "sister" Maxine. Just Maxine will do :)

Oh and I just realized that I always spell the word weird wrongly! Grrr... Glad to have spell check!

Snow Bunnies

I was so excited about the weather in TX.
Sunny days in the winter, shorts and flip flops in January!
I really was! and then yesterday, I heard it was snowing in Michigan
Beautiful snow flakes that sometimes land oh so softly on your cheeks.
And then I had a yearning for the snow, the boots, the jackets, the hat,
The mittens/gloves,cleaning snow off my car, turning my heat up to 80!
...The whole shibang!
Am I a Michigander? I might be at heart! Weird huh?
I might change my mind before long.
Perhaps a visit back is due soon :)
