mrskristinball: I love my giant Ginny, a huge dog we adopted last spring! She gives the best hugs, and that includes hugs from humans:D

mrskristinball: Our ninety pound Leonberger dragged my husband across the yard, then came back to lick his face because he's sprawled out in the grass; didn't know if I should laugh or help...I laughed;) and helped, too.

mrskristinball: Celebrating 25 years of marriage with the man I call my husband; it hasn't been bliss, but it certainly has been an adventure!

    DIS-illusioned: Bliss is simply being oblivious to the reality around you--like a baby born in prison.
    Congrats and count your blessings. Enjoy the ride while it lasts.

    mrskristinball: "Bliss is simply being oblivious to the reality around you--like a baby born in prison" I like these words--so true! And ty for the congrats:)

mrskristinball: No one can measure the worth of a human being...Jesus says people are priceless and showed it with His Blood; so, I choose every day to live the promise He tells--the promise of life filled with love and peace!

    DIS-illusioned: "Jesus says people are priceless"
    Exactly! So, why did my ex flip out when I told her she was worthless? :-/
    September 22, 2014 at 12:48PM
    mrskristinball: Do price and worth mean the same thing? Because I sometimes pay way too high a price for something that's not worth it...;)

mrskristinball: Is it possible to read a poem without an emotional reaction to the content?
September 20, 2014 at 8:06PM
    DIS-illusioned: Yes, of course...if you're the Tin-Man.
    September 20, 2014 at 9:30PM
    mrskristinball: That's what I think, too:)

    William Walz: Sure. It goes something like this...There once was a man from Nantucket...

    shelley kaye: There once was a man from Nantucket...
    ....his name was william walz....

    mrskristinball: ...humor connects me to such content as this, so the feeling, what is it called? Is it not the emotional connection called laughter?

mrskristinball: Poetry makes us think about that which is unseen, untouched, and unknown. KAB

mrskristinball: Change, the world is full of change! Nothing stays the same, so all I want to do is love the change that must be made...

    William Walz: You've inspired me! I think I'll change my shorts tomorrow!

mrskristinball: Learning and working to become an effective online tutor for essay writing is my most recent and most challenging career pursuit! And I love it:-) There is nothing more rewarding than teaching the writing process, and sharing a little bit, the love a writer has for the written word.

mrskristinball: ??The beautiful part of writing is that you don't have to get it right the first time, unlike, say, brain surgery."

- Robert Cormier

I love this quote for today, because it seems like I'm constantly revising my writing...As a writer, I don't have to have it perfect the first time I write it down, there's always room for improvement!

    misscookie: I pray for peace every day.

mrskristinball: Love = Sacrifice + Faith

Today, I choose to believe in the ones I love, and give my life for them. So, that means I have to go on facebook, ugh!
October 7, 2013 at 2:38PM
    DIS-illusioned: 'My' Love = woman, you better have my food hot and ready by the time I get back! + take off those clothes and get over here right now!
    (And my mother wonders why a super catch like me is still alone)

    Nosha17: Thank you for your comment and request to share from my book. I will do that later on today, but in the meantime, I did post a poem for the first time yesterday, it was called, "Love Poem". Hope you enjoy it. Thanks again, Faye

mrskristinball: Success = try + try again

Failure = give + up

By George, I think I've got it!

    DIS-illusioned: Reality = pig-out + pub + whatever!

mrskristinball: I'd like to say my mood is fairly balanced on a daily basis; fortunately, my mood swings can be so dramatic in such short periods of time that each day is a mysterious adventure to be lived out loud:-)
