I saw this posted on someone's Facebook page today and I love this. Can you imagine if Walt Disney would've never doodled or drawn cartoons?

I usually enjoy most of the books that I decide to read but every once in awhile I get one that I just can't put down. I am reading one of those right now. It's "Nineteen Minutes" by Jody Picoult. If I let myself, I'd probably stay up half the night reading it. I think I have about 100 pages left to go. It's really hard not to go sit on the couch for the rest of the day and finish it.
I feel a little guilty reading in the middle of the day for some reason. There is always other things that need to be done in the office or around the house.
Even though, I want to get to the end and find out what happens, I'm always a little bummed when the book is over. It's like I want to find out to the characters as they progress through their life. But I guess there's always the next book waiting for me to read it and get attached to that storyline....

I really try to learn something new everyday. Now I will share a few things about myself (one item for every year of age) so you can learn something new about me! (These are in somewhat random order....)
15. I love to read. When I am in the middle of a book, I can't get anything done!
32. I love to look at the pictures of when my kids were babies. And no that doesn't make me want another one.
33. I am constantly amazed about how I can learn things about myself. You would think I would know myself better by now. ;-)
34. I am one of the most loyal people I know.... sometimes to my own detriment.
35. I get US Magazine weekly. I don't watch soap operas or other trash. The magazine is my only dose of trash.
36. I love the quote, "Obstacles are opportunities in disguise."

Me: Pretty soon, you will be too big to cuddle with me. (I meant he will get older and won't want to cuddle with his mom).
J.T.: I hope not. And we can always just get a bigger couch....
Awwww, one of those "melt your heart" Mommy moments for sure!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
-1 Corinthians 13:4-7
