Welcome to the Republican Party

So, I work with a lady who is VERY Republican. Its hilarious the conversations we get into and fun because we think a lot alike. So, she sent me this story and I laughed so hard at how ironic and true it is, I just have to share!

I recently asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up... She said she wanted to be President some day.

Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?' She replied, 'I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.' Her parents beamed.

'Wow...what a worthy goal.' I told her, 'But you don't have towait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow thelawn, pull weeds, and sweep my walk and I'll pay you $50. Then, I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.'

She thought thatover for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?'

I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.'

Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

HOPE and being HAPPY

This is my first real post. Thanks to Katie and Mandy for helping me get this thing set up (and thanks in advance for the continued help as I plan on bringing my computer next Thursday). :)Anyway, as I am called "The Bright Side," I will do my very best to hold to my name. Because I like being happy. And I looking at the bright side of things. Sometimes its hard. Sometimes, actually, it is almost impossible. But, it always is possible and that is because of something huge. Its called HOPE. And my hope is from Jesus Christ. It cant get any better than that.

I LOVE this: "And now, Lord, what do I wait for? My HOPE is in YOU." ~Ps. 39:7

Things that made me very happy in the past two days:
1. Its been absolutely beautiful outside.
2. I work with the most adorable kids ever.
3. I went running for as long as a 5k, for which I need to be ready.
4. I got a really sweet message back from a girl I coach, whom I wanted to encourage (and she ended up encouraging me as well. Amazing how that works out.)
5. I found a four leaf clover! Seriously, it made me so happy! Its the first one I have found, something I have always wanted to find, so...yay! :)
6. Tie-dye. It always makes me happy.
7. Its beyond hilarious!
