i still wish i could be on staff a shady grove church sometimes
i remember when liz told me we were going to have dutch. i didn't react the way she would have hoped and i still feel bad for that.
my dad and i are so much alike. except for the fact that i will not construct a shower facility outside...yes he has one.
whenever my wife and i go to bed at the same time, most nights we will lay in bed watching seinfeld reruns. we have been doing this for years now. i love it.
when ever liz and i go to another country i beg her to allow us to make "our mark" in that country. we are doing pretty good so far across the globe.
i remember driving home from the dealership when i had bought my first car. i felt so cool, until i realized i bought a chevy cavalier.
i remember walking up to an iraqi when i went to denmark on a missions trip and the terror in my mind about the current state of the war. i remember his face as he thanked me for liberating his country. that moment shaped my view for people in that part of the world. he did not know me from adam. every other muslim i had met regardless if they were iraqi or not seemed to want to defend or excuse behavior of their leaders. not this guy, he expressed extreme gratitude.
i remember when i was in high school and hanging out late on the weekend with my friend nathaniel phillips. we were pulled over for curfew violation (we didn't get a ticket). the police officer, thinking he had busted me good, asked me if my parents knew where i was. i told him yes and he called my mom and she verified that she knew where i was. i felt like telling the cop "BOOM SUCKA!" but i didn't.
i have made up my mind to be rock and roll the rest of my life. so i am going to try.
i am so thankful that alcohol and marijuana (or any drug for that matter) didn't appeal to me when i was a teen.
i was a virgin when i married liz, but i remember thinking, "i know exactly how this is supposed to happen" on our first night. and i will never forget the moment she walked around that aisle and was coming to me, it was truly an el rey by the lassie foundation moment.
i wish i was good at poker. when all my friends get together i always decline to play. i know they are all better than me...or am i bluffing?
i hate that i don't consider others more than i should. sometimes i can be so selfish. there is a couple that lives in the same apartment building as liz and me. they go to the same church as well and speak english, but i have no desire to hang out with them. i think that is sorry, but i can't force to be his friend. i don't have the energy right now.
more to come...
