"Have I told you about the tensions of opposites?" he says
The tension of opposites? "Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing but you are bound to do something else. Something hurts you yet you know it shouldn't. You take certain things for granted, even though you know you should never take anything for granted. A tension of opposites like a pull on a rubber band. Most of us live somewhere in the middle."
Sounds like a wrestling match I say."A wrestling match," he laughs, "yes, you could describe life that way." So which side wins? I ask. He smiles as me, the crinkled eyes, the crooked teeth "Love wins, Love always wins"

As the August days become less and less, I'm reminded of how thankful I am for the summer. I enjoyed the long days at the beach, afternoons spent boating, dinners with life long friends, canoe days and last but not least the ROAD TRIPS! I wouldn't change anything in the last three months but I am ready to hit the books again. There is just something about learning that I can't keep myself from; I have to admit it's my drug.
Fall 2007 will be full of studying, cramming most importantly and good 'ole FOOTBALL! It will be extremely busy but I am looking forward to delving into the way the body works. When I hear words such as pericardial effusion, sphincters and cardiac tamponade I get excited. I can't wait to start nursing school. (Please pray for me in December as I consider different schools with various assets and liabilites.) Hopefully somewhere between the blood and guts, I'll be able to go to a few games at the Swamp and cheer on the champs!
Tata for now...I love you all!
