What happened.. Do I have an alien in my house?

It is Wednesday and I am feeling as if I stepped into the Twilight Zone. Okay, really not much has changed but in the past month I have been riddled trying to figure out what is wrong with my daughter. She has been having headaches, to the point she is crying. She is 12 so it is around that time of her life that her body is going crazy. Last week she called me daily from school.... I can't do this mom. Well, too bad you are going to have to get through it. So over the weekend the headaches were fairly non existent. Oh, and she has had them over the weekend prior. I wonder if her body snapped and finally said enough? She has mild ones still, but nothing big and we are down to almost NO medication. My boyfriend and I actually thought we needed to look under her bed to see if the POD was left there. Who is this child? It is almost like a ray of sunshine has been deposited in her body and she now smiles. Do not get me wrong here - I love my child and know she has gone through soooooo many changes in the past few years, and she has been a trooper. Though if you have been around my daughter since the time she was little, you would understand my meaning. She has always been that child that worries about everything, is a bit high strung and has a hard time laughing at herself. My way or the highway has always been who she is. Well we did not find the pod? I asked her if she hid a pod somewhere but she looked at me with big eyes and said "HUH?" I explained to her that I was wondering if she had a talk with someone over the weekend or what. That from Sunday on she has been a bit different.. oh and I did let her know I was not complaining and that she seems to be the person that I see when we are alone, and that THIS is how I like to see her. Smiling, a bit carefree, laughing at the silly things that well...Chris and I tend to do. This has been such a fun week. If I could bottle up whatever happened to her over the weekend.. I SO WOULD. I love my little one and she brings so much joy to my life. I always hope that she can just relax and let life happen and not get too riddled with the daily downers that can tend to happen. So, I pray that this is a NEW thing in our lives. Happy times ahead! Perhaps my daughter will turn out as goofy as me!!!

The power of touch!

So first I have to give my mom credit for me writing this! I was viewing her blog and saw the video she had placed on it, as I watched my heart filled with joy and the tension eased a bit.

I am what you would call a people person. I love people, love talking to them, learning them, helping them and loving them. Yes, some people can get on my nerves, but there are few that do. A few minutes ago my boyfriend said that he could totally be a hermit. Then I go and watch the video, OH HELL no - I could never be a hermit. Yes, I already knew this but sometimes things just POP in your head. I need people, love to be around people. Yet I find that I have a hard time "planning" so that I can see my family and friends more often. I have often thought about this, how people tend to lose touch with each other. I do firmly believe that people are IN your life when they need to be and that is what keeps us going. There is always a reason that they are there. Some, are there always... not that you see them all of the time but they are there, and you know you can count on them when you need them! I have several of these people, I really am lucky!

So the video is a bunch of pictures showing HUGS. WOW, I thought, the power of touch! Hugs, kisses, a hand on your shoulder, or the small of your back, holding hands, slow dancing.... the list goes on. It is not just physical touch that this brings to us, but also the emotional touch that we get from this. A powerful thing that we hold. If we don't give it we can hurt just as much as if we do we can help. I love touch, and am willing to give it often, but sometimes we get lost in ourselves and forget that others need it too. Sometimes we can even touch with our words, for they are very powerful too. This day in age we may see more and more of that LONG DISTANCE HUG! See I will do it right now. HUGS to all that read this, you are my friend and I thank you for being a part of my life.
