This is not an argument for or against gay marriage, but his post brings up a good point. President Obama can't do it all. I am watcher of Morning Joe every morning and sometimes I get irritated because some people expect President Obama to fix everything yesterday...I am not saying our President is perfect, but I do think he and his team are working hard and wise. He has only been in office less than a year and came in with a lot of problems to solve. This country did not get in this mess overnight and it can't be fixed overnight.
One of my friends who was a poltical science major always says you have to start with your local politician. Our government has a checks and balance system and has so many components. Although we have a President he does not have absolute power. We have a vote, we have a voice. We need to take a moer active role in what goes on in society and stop complaining about it and be a part of the solution. This world is not perfect and it will never be, but we need to focus on the positive and help correct the negative.
Just my thoughts....Back to work. Hope whoever is reading this has a great day!!

This statement really stood out to me. I have been dealing with a lot lately in my personal life and this is one area that keeps coming up. I think accountability is so lacking in today's society. I am thankful for my close friends and the ones who hold me accountable. We all have issues and all fall short, but I think that is where friends come in. To hold you accountable.
Accoutability: Actions toward of involving otheres that reflect the integrity of
the person you will be.
I think that it is so important in a friendship. I think too many people want friends who cosign on everything that they do even when they are wrong. To me that is not a good friend. This can cause you to get in situations that are not good for anyone involved.
But I think one part of accoutability that is hard, is doing it in love and not being judgemental. This is a hard line to walk. I have to be able to realize what ever decision I make after you attempt to hold be accountable that you still love me and are there for me. I might not agree with you, but I know you got my best interest at heart. Make sense?
Ok...I have more on my mind and need to get it out, this blog is leading to another one that might step on some people's toes, but I am praying about how to write it...hopefully the words will come in the near future.

Pros: cute, short, easy to flat iron, color, body
Cons: no ponytail, hair natural looks crazy(too short), is in my face and makes it break out
Long & Curly:
Pros: I love curls, my beautician makes them stay, looks great on my face, ponytail capabilities
Cons: hard for me to do, sometimes curls go weird directions, frizzes unless I go to shop, sometimes curls get in the way, takes forever to do myself
Naturally Long & Curly or Crinkly (best pic I could find sorry):
Pros: Manageable, cute, long, just have to wrap at night, frames my face without being all in my face, simple, ponytail capabilities
