This photo was taken on the Three Capes Scenic Route last winter. That is my hubby and Montana the dog .

Tommorrow is our anniversary and we will have been married for 6 years and will have been together for 7. I just want to Thank Him for all he has given me. He is my best friend and so much more. He is just like a big Teddy Bear soft and loveable and I know that he is the most precious gift I have ever been given. I know what a treasure I have in our marriage and I never take it for granted.He is my {Anam Cara} or {soul friend}.I will be at work the next two days so I won't get to spend any time with him this weekend. I just want him to know that these have been the best years of my life.

I have enjoyed listening to NPR online of late while I am online. My favorite NPR station is KCRW it is out of LA. I especially like the show Morning Becomes Eclectic.The older I get the more I find I like NPR.

Here is some Linky Love for you:

Manquarium it is a funny tool to play with.

Two new Blogs I am really liking:

LeSophie-love her photgraphy

Soule Mama-love her insights.

In 1993 I worked for about six months for a center for the developmentally delayed. I loved the job but just didn't jee/haw with the boss and so I left but I learned some valuable lessons working there. I worked in a group home with men and women and one of the things I learned and wish I could translate into to my own life was their sense of their own beauty. There have been times in my life when I would have love to have participated in something or even danced when asked but I often I don't participate for fear of being accepted. I think you never ourgrow the traumas from your childhood. I know often I still feel like the kid on the playground who was always chosen last. These individuals that I worked with they loved to dance and when they had a get together they would put on music and get up and dance. It didn't matter to them whether they were pretty or not or if anybody was watching. They moved with the music because if felt good and they enjoyed it. I wish and one of my goals in this 43rd year of my life is to not worry so much about what others think and just get in there and enjoy life.In the Anne Lamott book that I have been reading she talks about that when she does her Sunday School classes she calls out each child and tells them they are Loved and Chosen and I think we all need to know that even as adults. I know that there are times now as an adult that I would love to hear someone say You are loved and chosen instead of the tape in my head that is on rewind constantly that says"you don't measure up".

One of my new guilty pleasures is the show "Hidden Palms"-it is like a desert Melrose place but I like it and for some reason I am fascinated with cooking reality shows. The new "Top Chef" started this week and I really like the caterer with the British accent from LA and on the "Next Food Network Star" i like Salmon and Rory from Texas.What can I say it doesn't take much to amuse me.

What a nice tribute to your husband!

I love the story you shared about the group home. I too wish I was less fearful about what others think and could be "free to dance" when the music plays. The quote from A.L. was great - I've really enjoyed reading her books this past year.
