I love Sabbath. Sabbath is the seventh day of the week, and starts at sundown friday, according to the jewish calendar.
So here I am, having a great Friday evening, the family in bed, and I can't sleep but I'm having fun trying to wind down for the night.
My husband is awsome. He worked hard all week for the family, did a great job, was a great daddy and an awsome soul-mate to me this week as well. (As always) And things are smoothing out, too.
I just realized tonight what an activist I am, by nature. If I think a cause is worthy of my attention, I run with it. I don't sit down, shut up and fit in. I would rather tear my clothes off than tow the party line. I put issues first, self-image later. It is my nature.
When I was in junior high, I stood up in the cafeteria and gave a little spiel on how my teacher was trying to violate my/our religious concience by not allowing me to write an essay on a religious book instead of a fiction one, and I complained to other teachers, and got his descision reversed. It is just what I do. I made myself unpopular in 5th grade pulling a similar stunt with kids who discriminated against a fat boy. I wasn't going to let them judge him by his "cover".
And today I shared my concern about cell phones and towers. I hope people wake up and stop using them and/or complain until the companies change this situation to a healthier one.
It's just who I am. I think about stuff, and then, if I think what I am pondering will impact other's lives in a positive way, I take action.

I gotta go do the dishes.
Hubby says I waste time here, being introspective. I hope I am learning something, and that my time here is worth it.

My husband has had a hard time understanding me, and all of this AS stuff, but lately he seems to really be getting it, and starting to understand me.
I know he is trying, even though sometimes he is still frustrated and angry. He told me yesterday, after a misunderstanding that he was sorry and that God is working with him, and he is starting to get it, and he knows it will all work out.
I can't even begin to tell you how happy this makes me. A future with very few rough spots and lots of calm times will be a wonderful thing to have, and I think that is what we are headed for, but in order to get there I have to speak up, and explain what is happening. In other words, it is work.
Hard work? Yes it is.
Worth it? You betcha!

I have struggled for years to change myself to be more normal, and now I can accept myself, but I have heard the opinion that maybe I am starting to "cop-out" now that I know there is a reason for why I am the way that I am.
But I know better! I hope one day that I will have a sufficient arsenal of skills to make life smoother for me, without giving others the feeling that being at peace with who I am is "copping-out".
There is nothing wrong with being me, and I wouldn't ever trade it for being "normal". Life is good.

I just uploaded my avatar, and thought I should explain it. Some people may dislike it because they think it has a pagan ritualistic history or something, but it is not that at all, in my opinion. To me it is a global symbol of peace, which is why I chose it. It is something everyone can easily recognise. I also see the "pagan" link as tenuous at best. In other words, I don't buy it.
Anyway, now that I am done with my disclaimer, I will hopefully feel like posting more interesting and informative stuff.
Hello to all, and I'll see ya around.
