Why should we blaze a trail...

...when the well-worn path seems safe and so inviting?

I really wish I could write a blog right now. A witty, hysterical, normal blog. But I can't, because all that is in my head at the moment are questions. Questions none of you, my faithful 15, can answer. They're lame questions, too. Are any of you familiar with the musical Tick, Tick, Boom? I am assuming no. Well, the song "Louder Than Words"...those questions. Those are the questions I want answered.

Fear or love, baby? Well, I know the answer but I'm too afraid to follow through. Fear is holding me back. I think. Why? Why do I feel this way? Why am I in a really bad mood? What can I do? I don't want to hurt anyone.

"On the streets you hear the voices-lost children, crocodiles. But you're not into making choices, wicked witches, poppy fields or men behind a curtain, tiger lillies, ruby slippers, clock is ticking-that's for certain. "

Seriously! So I was walking around Wal-Mart and guess who I passed? Like within two inches? My Asian Man who waits at the bus every morning at 7:25! I wish I would have talked to him. I tried to smile and make eye contact, because I was SO happy, but he looked the same as he always does...staring straight ahead. It was so awesome.

This one time...

Last year. Christmas time. Sunday night. It had snowed a lot. My dad put our two garbage cans out in front of our house.

It continued to snow. A lot. The next morning, my dad went out to bring the garbage cans back. But...he could only find one. Our other garbage can disappeared. We concluded that it had been stolen by the garbage man, because there was a hole in the snow where our garbage can once sat, but no tracks leading to the house, or anywhere for that matter. The garbage can was just gone.

For the Mills

Wow, this was forever ago...remember going to the care center like every Sunday? Sometimes it seems like it was just yesterday, but then I look at the picture and see how much we've changed and wow. Crazy.
