story of my life. #alwayshungry
wish you were here.
You will never fade away, Your love is here to stay.
By my side, in my life, shining through me everyday.
I really need tooooooooooo! experiencing major concert withdrawal…HELP.
Remember, even if you don’t see how things could ever work out, God does. You’ve got to speak to those mountains in your life and declare favor over those situations. Instead of talking to God about how big your problems are, talk to your problems about how big your God is! As you speak to your mountains, they will be moved, and you will move forward into the victory God has prepared for you!

Dang. It’s been FOREVER since I updated this thing…LOL. time to dedicate more time to blogging! no guarantees though.
I lost my best friend today. Who is my best friend you ask? It happens to be my dog, Happy. To most, she’s merely a dog, but to me she’s family. It’s been so difficult trying to cope with all of this, but I’m hanging in there! There’s just something about dogs that allows you to become so connected with them. They will love you & accept you for who you are and always stay by your side no matter what. It’s one of those things that you have to experience yourself…but once you experience it, you come to realize why people are so in love with their dogs! I happened to smother my dog with love…maybe a little too much sometimes? lol.
Happy was an amazing dog. I still remember the day we got her it was a cold winter night and we had been searching all day trying to find a puppy. We decided to stop by one more place before calling it a night, and there she was: a little yorkie puppy with ears almost as big as her face. Taking her home that night, I knew that this dog would change my life forever. That’s exactly what she did.
Happy has made these past 14 years so memorable and she has been the best companion I could ask for. Even in the toughest of times, Happy (and of course Jesus) was that one thing that remained constant and taught me to remain positive in moments when its hardest to. Whenever I came home, she ALWAYS waited at the door for me and gave me lots of kisses as she wagged that little tail of hers. Happy was mischievous as times and pooped in my room on multiple occasions, but she was the BEST dog I could ever ask for. It’s hard to accept the fact that she is no longer with our family, but I’m SO thankful that she lived a happy & healthy life these past 14 years. She really did live up to her name (: I’m gonna miss talking her on walks, sharing bits of my food with her, playing with her, and petting her as she slowly fell asleep.
Even though its difficult, I choose to rejoice! I know that God is strengthening me and my family through this difficult circumstance and I am SO thankful that He has been so faithful through it all. Thanks God for always having my back (: Even though the situation is far from ideal, the best that I can do is stay positive! One of the many things that I was able to learn from Happy (:
Thank you Happy for being my source of joy, peace, and happiness these past 14 years. You’ve changed my life so much and I’m at peace knowing that you’re resting in peace. I love you SO much Penguin <3 I hope you’re enjoying doggie heaven! <3 <3 <3
