A second #Royal Baby will soon be joining the Windsors in England. Given the choice, would you rather be heir to the throne, or the (probably) off-the-hook sibling?
Well maybe when I was a child I would have loved all the attention, but as an adult I would prefer to stay away from the disco ball. I don’t want to be noticed for what I have in monies or whether I purchased my clothing from the Goodwill store or Macy’s.I want people to remember me for my kindness. I want to know that at my funeral you are crying over missing me and not finally saying all those nasty things that you always thought.
I wouldn’t have any time to think. I couldn’t sit at my computer long enough to write my thoughts. Someone would always be ringing me, or interrupting me by visits. The butler would be standing outside the bathroom door holding a spare roll of toilet paper.
No, leave me be, let me grow into my own person.
Give me Liberty or Give me Death!
“Give me liberty, or give me death!” is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Virginia Convention in 1775, at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia, he is credited with having swung the balance in convincing the Virginia House of Burgesses to pass a resolution delivering the Virginia troops to the Revolutionary War. Among the delegates to the convention were future U.S. Presidents Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.
This is me as of this morning and believe me if nothing else. I will always remember each of you for all of my days. For what you have done for my brother through phone calls, cards and gifts. I will always remember you for your constant friendship; even after his passing.
