“A touching love story that ‘ll make u cry”

Posted on February 11, 2013 by RJI



10th Grade:-
As I sat there in English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so called ‘best friend’. I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine. But she didn’t notice me like that, and I knew it. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before. I handed them to her.

She said ‘thanks’ and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.

11th grade:-
The phone rang. On the other end, it was her. She was in tears, mumbling on and on about how her love had broke her heart. She asked me to come over because she didn’t want to be alone, So I did. As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. After 2 hours, one Drew Barrymore movie, and three bags of chips, she decided to go home.

She looked at me, said ‘thanks’ and gave me a kiss on the cheek..I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.

Senior year:-
One fine day she walked to my locker. “My date is sick” she said, ”hes not gonna go” well, I didn’t have a date, and in 7th grade, we made a promise that if neither of us had dates, we would go together just as ‘best friends’.

So we did. That night, after everything was over, I was standing at her front door step. I stared at her as She smiled at me and stared at me with her crystal eyes.

Then she said- “I had the best time, thanks!” and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.

Graduation:-
A day passed, then a week, then a month. Before I could blink, it was graduation day. I watched as her perfect body floated like an angel up on stage to get her diploma. I wanted her to be mine-but she didn’t notice me like that, and I knew it.

Before everyone went home, she came to me in her smock and hat, and cried as I hugged her.

Then she lifted her head from my shoulder and said- ‘you’re my best friend, thanks’ and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.

Marriage:-
Now I sit in the pews of the church. That girl is getting married now. and drive off to her new life, married to another man. I wanted her to be mine, but she didn’t see me like that, and I knew it. But before she drove away, she came to me and said ‘you came !’.

She said ‘thanks’ and kissed me on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don’t want to be just friends, I love her but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why.

Death:-
Years passed, I looked down at the coffin of a girl who used to be my ‘best friend’.
At the service, they read a diary entry she had wrote in her high school years.

This is what it read:

‘I stare at him wishing he was mine, but he doesn’t notice me like that, and I know it. I want to tell him, I want him to know that I don’t want to be just friends,
I love him but I’m just too shy, and I don’t know why. I wish he would tell me he loved me !

………’I wish I did too…’
I thought to my self, and I cried

A Friend is...




A friend is someone we turn to,
When our spirits need a lift,
A friend is someone we treasure,
For true friendship is a gift..
A friend is someone we laugh with,
Over little personal things,
A friend is someone we’re serious with,
In facing whatever life brings..
A friend is someone who fills our lives,
With beauty and joy and grace.
And makes the world that we live in
A better and happier place!

How The Hate We Carry Will Burden Us




How The Hate We Carry Will Burden Us.

A kindergarten teacher has decided to let her class play a game.

The teacher told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag containing a few potatoes. Each potato will be given a name of a person that the child hates, so the number of potatoes that a child will put in his/her plastic bag will depend on the number of people he/she hates.

So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name of the people he/she hated. Some had 2 potatoes; some 3 while some up to 5 potatoes.

The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes in the plastic bag wherever they go (even to the toilet) for 1 week.

Days after days passed by, and the children started to complain due to the unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes. Besides, those having 5 potatoes also had to carry heavier bags. After 1 week, the children were relieved because the game had finally ended.

The teacher asked: "How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you for 1 week?" The children let out their frustrations and started complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go.

Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game. The teacher said: "This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody inside your heart. The stench of hatred will contaminate your heart and you will carry it with you wherever you go. If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just 1 week, can you imagine what is it like to have the stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime?"

Moral of the story:

Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so that you will not carry the burdens created by others, for a lifetime. Forgiving others is the best and healthiest attitude to take!

Whispers of the heart


“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”


Plato

My Daughter

© Victoria Levesque

My Daughter means the world to me!
So much out there for her to see!
I'd like to take her in my arms,
and show her the world and all its charms.
As she grows a little day by day,
God lights the path to guide her on her way.
As she blooms out like a precious flower,
She will always know God's wonderful power.

Give your hundred percent...


Step-by-step how to knit these Lilac "Slippers".


AUTHOR: ELENA CHEPIKOVA // PUBLICATION DATE: 09/26/2013


Size slippers - arbitrary. According to the description presented - from the 37th to the 40th.

Materials: Any yarn (not thin), the remains of woolen threads for embroidery and flowers (dark green, bright green, white, pink, purple), large and small beads (white, purple, transparent).

Slippers are connected spokes №4,5. Flowers crochet №1,75.


Master Class:
1. Slippers - the basis of Spokes.

We collect 34 loops.

Number 1: 1 bead, 32 facial, 1 bead
Number 2: 1 bead, 10 facial, 1 Wrong, 10 facial, 1 Wrong, 10 facial, 1 bead

3 - 34 series:
= odd ranks as the 1st row
the even rows = as the 2nd row

Number 35: 1 bead, 11 facial, 1 increase (from one loop vyvyazyvayut two), 8 facial, 1 increase, 11 facial, 1 bead
Number 36: 1 bead, 10 facial, 1 Wrong, 12 facial, 1 Wrong, 10 facial, 1 bead
Number 37: 1 bead, 34 facial, 1 bead

38 - number 63:
the even rows = as the 36th series
= odd ranks as the 37th series

64 - number 72: 1 facial gum - 1 Wrong

The hinges do not close, leaving a long thread.


A number with the addition - a place of expansion of the foot.


2. Slippers - assembly
"Sock"


Stretched left thread through the loop of the last series (see photo №2). Contractible thread (see photo №3), we fix it. Then sew the part related gum and still about 8 series (see photo №4 - 5).


You can make slippers more closed or more "small".
"Heel"

Threaded through the middle part (A) thread and tightens it (see photo №6 - 7). Was next part in the crosslinking (see photo №8).


Photo №9 - rear view.


All angles.

3. Decoration Hook.
"Lilac Flower"


Knit any number of lilac flowers of different colors of yarn.

4 chain of air loops closed in the ring polustolbikom. From this loop knit the following chain of 4 stitches, forms a ring polustolbikom (hook into the first loop of the chain). So we form a total of four petals. At the end of the fourth connect the connecting column to the first tab.
"Green leaf"

Knit a chain of 5 stitches. Further, the chain tied around: polustolbik, without nakida column, column 1 nakida in next st (this is the edge of the chain): * nakida column 2, column 1 nakida, a column without nakida, polustolbik, without nakida column, a column nakida 1, column 2 nakida * Further nakida column 1, column without nakida, polustolbik.


Slippers with knitted sewn flowers and leaves.

On the green leaves embroider thread veins contrasting green. Adding chetyr—Ďhlepestkovye embroidered flowers of lilac. We are trying to form a purple grapes. In the center of each knitted and embroidered flower sew on bead or beads. Drawing on each slipper-Sledkov better to have for the most part on the outer side.


Right and left slippers should not be of the same design. Here individuality especially welcome.

For more warmth and wearability below on the sole can sew insole.
Even the utilitarian things can be beautiful!

How to make Corn Dogs



    
Creator of the Recipe: Thor Baker
Recipe Name: Sausage Dogs

Estimated Prep Time: 45

Ingredients: 
  • 8 jumbo eggs
  • 2 cups of shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup of Sour Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • Pinch of salt
instructions: 
In a blender or food processor whip the eggs until light, add in the sour cream and Parmesan cheese and continue to blend on high until well mixed. Add in the Almond flour and salt and blend well. You will add the baking soda when you are ready to pour out the batter. The baking soda will react immediately making this dough rise. I used the mini loaf pans, well greased on the bottom and sides. The sausage was cut to length, heated in the microwave and then fried in a skillet. You want the sausage hot when you pour in the batter. Be sure to center them in the middle. The batter will make 8 sausage dogs. Bake 400 for 15 minutes then reduce the heat to 350 for an additional 15 minutes.

General Comments: The nutrients are for the batter only, everyone will have their favorite sausage with varying nutritional levels. I used Johnsonville Sausage with no fillers so it was less than 1 gram of carbs per serving.
