- Any semi or delivery truck driver caught texting while driving should lose their license immediately for at least one year - no exceptions, no excuses.
- Any one caught texting while driving who has a child under 18 in the vehicle with them should be charged with either child endangerment or neglect of a dependent.
There is nothing you have to tell someone that is more important than peoples lives - possibly even your own.
Please do not text and drive!

I did, however, overhear two interesting conversations.
The first one I could not post in its entirety without changing the rating on my blog but was a middle age couple who appeared by their shopping and conversation to not know each other all that well (possibly were dating) but proceeded to discuss why her son was in jail and about his nephew (in jail also) and the details of each situation which would have equalled TOO MUCH INFORMATION in a counseling session, let alone in the middle of a store! Geeesh!
The other conversation made me literally laugh out loud!
Overheard in the school supply aisles:
"This one is what's on the list"
"See, it has different sections for different subjects."
"Moooom, I just need this one - not the one with sections."
"but the list..."
"Mom, this is the exact kind my friend has and she's a straight A student!"
Yep, I'm guessing that single subject notebook will make all the difference.

- Sometimes I feel like it is hard to hear what God is telling me. Sometimes I think He is being stubbornly silent. What I'm discovering, and what is true about some of the decisions I've been trying to make recently, is that it usually isn't that He is silent but that I am not listening. I am not taking time to "be still". I am busying myself with distractions or busying my mind with a barrage of points and counterpoints until all I hear is static. I intentionally, even if unknowingly, create enough noise to avoid hearing what I am afraid to hear - to avoid recognizing if He is asking me to do something I don't want to do or to go a direction that will be hard or uncomfortable for me.
- There are currently lots of things going on in my life that require decisions. Not your run of the mill "what will I fix for dinner" kinds of decisions, but life altering decisions. I have been struggling to make most of them - going back and forth, trying to weigh the positives and negatives of each option and all the potential outcomes and scenarios. The result was having no peace, being frustrated and being no closer to a decision. Then on Sunday at church the pastor talked about how we complicate things rather than keeping them as simple as they actually are. Another young man spoke about a situation where he had to rely on God's guidance which he was only receiving one "step" at a time.
Hmmmmm. Be still, keep it simple, and be willing to take one trusting step at a time. I think I'll try that.
