Monday Memories & etc

I had this picture done on purpose for Charli Beth's 3 old pictures, due to the fact that her dress was very similar to her the first. It's amazing how different she looks, and more amazing she has made our lives.

Now my outrage post about the Miss USA pageant, and just like Miss California said, no offense to anyone out there. But are you FREAKING KIDDING ME, she did not loose her crown due to the question that she was asked. Donald Trump and the others from the Miss USA organization must have wanted this kind of controversy with the question that did come from an openly game man. The question went as follows:
Perez Hilton's (whoever this joker is) question: [I cannot find the exact question that he asked on the internet at all, but I am trying to get it from youtube.]
"Miss California, Vermont is the 4th state to legalize gay marriage in American. Do you think that other states should follow behind Vermont?"

Her Answer
: "We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised.

She may have not given the answer to the "best of her ability" by simply not adding in the fact that " No she doesnt not believe that other states should follow," but she is amazing in my eyes for giving her opinion and not being scared of what the out come would be. This right here, is what Miss USA and other pageants should be all about, being yourself, and not answering a question just because it will get you the crown. Why is gay marriage such a HUGE controvesery anyways? I do not agree with gay marriage, I probably should have stated this before. I think that Perez Hilton is filth, for calling Miss California a "Dumb B*tch" on his video blog after the show ended, he has also stated on Extra that he "does not feel sorry for calling her this because he was thinking much worse." Are you kidding me? I would like to have a few rounds with him. Donald Trump has ruined this pageant for letting horrible Judges to come onto this show and try to make fools of women that may actually have what it takes. California was not my favorite girl in the pageant, but I did figure she would win. Although the lady does have class and a very strong head on her shoulders, she would of been a wonderful Miss USA. I hope next year is nothing at all like this....

Also, one other thing...I did not post yesterdays picture and words to make anyone think or feel that I am not strong enough to do this or that I have a hard time because "he" isn't around. I thank you all so much for your so very kind comments. My mom was also a single Mother and she's the most amazing woman that I know of. I know I can do this, I have never doubted that and being single is the only way that I would have it. I hurt because she hurts, doesnt understand, and asks questions that she is WAY to young to be asking. It breaks a piece of my heart every time she she says "daddy" just for the fact that I dont want him around her either. Maybe I should want him around? I maybe selfish..Wait, I know I am selfish. I just wouldn't have it any other way than this. She knows that Jesus is looking for her a "Daddy" she just thinks that he has to have a swimming pool to go with it. haha! My postsecrets also came from Juliana and I love them. Please pray for her family during their time of heartache.
I'm actually at work today so I am.....

I LOVE that she stood up for what she believed in! I agree the Trump has allowed this to get WAY out of hand. Its not the same pagent it used to be at all. I think she DOES represent Americaby saying marrige should be between a man and a woman, and in my opinion, I think it was just obscene to allow an openly gay man ask her that question!! Whatever happened to "world peace" questions??? haha Have a good day!!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
