What I've Been up to Lately

So, no I have not left you all. I am still here I just haven't been writing lately due to school work and not knowing what to write but I guess I'll you an overview of things :D So let's over the last few weeks this is what's been happening:

Number One

Well, I don't know if I've mentioned this but I wrote a book and it is currently in the process of getting published! :D Exciting! I know! :D So it's called Still That Girl and I personally think it's super awesome! But I guess I'll have to wait and see what everyone else thinks! :D If you want anymore info check out this website: http://rebeccadominick.weebly.com/ I highly suggest that you check it out. Yes you should. Go do it now. Right now. Trust me, you'll like it. Honest! (or at least I hope you will ;) ). Anyways that's it for this one. I plan on getting a new post up on the website but I've been busy (reasons stated at beginning of post). 

Number Two

Last week, I celebrated my 16th birthday! I know 16!? I can't believe it. Gosh I'm old. On my birthday my sister took me out to Dunkin Donuts and we got iced lattes and donuts. Afterwards we went to the park. Hahaha, yes we did. It was tons of fun getting to hang out with her! :D 

Afterwards my best friend came over to spend the afternoon. My little bro, AJ, insisted that he wanted to serve our lunch and set up the table, so I let him, haha. My mom let him use some china and we have wine/champagne(not sure which) glasses from my cousin's wedding shower so we got to use those for our pop. We had lasagna left over from my birthday party with my family. 

He had us dress up as well.
We also watched the movie God's Not Dead (great movie by the way). Then we listened to music and just had fun, haha! :D

Number Three

This past Saturday, I had both my best friends over for a tea party. It was awesome! :D We all supplied food and haha we had a ton! lol But it was all finished thanks to my siblings and one of my best friends bros too. :D 


We all had soo much fun, and I'm really glad I got to spend time with both of them! With their help they finished the celebrations to a pretty awesome birthday! :D <3

So that's about all that's really been happening that's super important. I hoped you enjoyed my "What I've Been up to Lately" post. :D Like I always say I'll try and post more often but we'll see how that goes! Haha! God bless all of you!

A Redesigning Job!! Part 1

Redesigning things and re-organzing things or just plan organizing/designing things makes me soo happy!! So I was ecstatic when my parents bought new furniture for our living room that my mom and I had see in a resale shop we checked out week and a half ago. Yesterday we moved the new couch and love-seat into the room as well as bringing a chair from another room that fit better in here.

I do not have before pictures of the room, for that you can check out me mummy's blog

But today started the fun part! Well it's all been fun! ;) Along with the couches and that green lamp in the back by the couch in the second photo we also got a square coffee table of which my mom and I are in the process of painting! Here's a picture of us painting the primer on. 

 and the next two are of the table with the first coat of paint on it. Tomorrow we will be doing a second coat of this pretty creamish white. It's start to look really pretty! It's going to brighten the room up soo much more!


These little beauties are from the sides of the table. We had to unscrew them to sand and paint the table. When they are on the table you can pull them down so that you can put like books and such on the lower part of the table. These we will be painting a green to help match the table with the furniture some more.

Part 2 coming soon!!

Update on My Cousin

Guys!! Some miracles start out small but are big in of themselves!! They were able to take my cousin off the ventilator at 3:00 o'clock this morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D She started breathing on her own!!!!!!!! :D At first it was just a few breaths for every ten or something breaths on the ventilator but then in like 10 minutes they had to take her off cause she was breathing so well on her own she was starting to hyperventilate with the ventilator on!!!!!!

Poems Galore!

I thought I'd give you a treat and let you read some poems I have written lately. :D Enjoy!

An unborn child.
Someone’s son or daughter.
Someone’s sibling.
Someone’s best friend.
Someone totally special to God.

It is ignored,
That the child is real.
He is real. 
Don’t ignore it.
Face the truth. 
Stand strong
And march on.

Don’t let the child die.
Let him live
For Jesus Christ.
Let him live
Let him bring joy to someone’s life.
Let him live.
So you can hear him laugh.
See him smile.
Hold his hand.
Look into his eyes

Don’t ignore the truth.
Let it make you strong.
Don’t fall down and let the lie take you over.
Don’t get pulled in.
Stand strong 
And march on.

Spread the truth.
Save the child.
Save him!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Don’t let me walk this road alone.
Come with me and hold my hand.
I want the company more than anything.
Could you spare a moment,
To take my hand and walk the road.
I don’t wanna walk alone. 
I don’t wanna be lonely.
Take a minute of your time and give it to me.
I don’t want to walk alone. 

This road is long and tiresome.
I’m embarking on a dust journey.
I’m gonna take you with me.
Please don’t object.
I want you here so badly.
I’m sure you don’t want me to walk this alone.
It’s a lonely road; it’s a dark road; it’s a depressing road.
You don’t have a choice because I’m making it for you.
You’ll be coming with me
To brighten the journey. 
Bring a smile to both our faces.

I don’t care that you chose for me.
I’m glad you don’t care.
I would come with you no matter what.
Let’s walk this road together.
Of course, we’d walk this together. I wouldn’t let you go by yourself.
Let’s embark on this journey.
It’s time to start, we’ve got a long way to go.
But at least we’ll be-
Together

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Step out into the light.
leave the dark behind you.
don’t let it succumb to you again.
leave behind the chains that once held you.
he will fix the tatters that is your heart.

Let Him in. Don’t hide from the Light.
let it shine upon you.
it’s gonna flood your heart,
if you only you let it in.
c’mon step on out hold your hand out.

Hold your hand out.
He’s gonna reach out and take it,
hold it tight and never let it go,
never let it go.
He’s gonna hold onto it forever.
as long as you let Him.
oh hold on.

The light’s gonna lead you.
to the future of His design.
don’t be to slow to react
to His beckoning.
just listen with your heart and answer with your soul.
He’s gonna show you the way.

C’mon leave the dark behind.
make the right choice.
do the right thing, make a new start.
Step out into the light.
Hold onto His promises,
cause you know they are the truth.
He is the way, the truth, 
and the Light.

Never let Him go.
He will be your anchor,
through the ups and downs of life.
He’s gonna hold onto,
and never let you go...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am unworthy.
Go ahead and love someone else.
I can move on by myself,
without you.
Because I am unworthy.
I don’t need you.
Go on, go on.

I’m all right if you do what you want to do.
It won’t hurt me; it won’t tear me
Apart.
Just keep movin’ on.
I’ll be fine by myself.
I don’t need your help at all.

You won’t hurt me
if you leave me alone.
I promise you I’ll be okay.
I’m strong enough to take on the world.
By myself; alone.
I can do it.

Trust me.
I can do this.
Please, please, don’t bother me.
I have to do this.
I can carry on alone.
I don’t need the help of a friend.

Trust me.
You don’t want me.
Because I am
unworthy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Her arms wrapped around her daughter.
One last squeeze.
A last thought before letting go.
Letting go forever.
Never to see her again.
A small tear fell upon the pillow,
upon which lay the pale face of a girl once lively.
Once lively now fading fast.

My eyes traveled around the darkened room.
Surrounding me stood or sat my family.
My family who had stuck with me to the end.
Who had supported me.
They loved me and I them.
A thought crept into my mind.
I didn’t want to leave them; 
but I squashed into away.
I didn’t but if leaving them meant I would see Him,
then I wanted to go,
to go now.

He clasped her small frail hand in his.
Putting slight pressure on her hand he squeezed it gently.
Lovingly, caring, strong, and firm.
He had always been there for her,
to lift her up when she fell, to hug her when she cried;
His wish was to hold her up until the last.
His eyes whispered I love you to her.
Making a tear trickle out of the corner of her eye.

I love you to, Daddy.
My eyes whispered back to him. 
I know that I will see them all again.
Far away in their futures. 
I will watch them from up above.
I would stay but I wanna go and hold His hand;
My heavenly Father; My never changing Guide.

They all watched her with loving eyes.
They didn’t want to miss any last moments with her.
She was all they had ever had,
and now she was leaving them so young.

I’ll see you all later.
My mouth formed the words
but not a sound came out. 
The tears ran silently down my face,
wetting my cheeks.
They very last time they would ever get wet.
But they were almost tears of joy not sadness.
One last breath escaped my lips along with the words:
Goodbye my loves.

They watched the last breath leave her pale lips.
She was gone now forever.
Never were they to hear her merry laugh.
Never were they to see her kind smile.
Nor her loving eyes looking at them from afar.
She was gone now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rescue me from the fall.
Save my soul-
from depths of despair.
Don’t let the image cloud my eyes,
don’t let it hide the sin from my mind. 
I need You saving glory.

You will save my soul,
I need Your guidence on this path to heaven.
You’ll lead me on the way.
I know You’ll only show me the right-
and save me from the wrong.
I trust in You to do all you need.

Reap the goodness in me
and destroy the bad.
You can do it,
I know You can.
You won’t fail me and leave me lyin’ here-
on the ground to suffer.
Will You let me go into this pain
and suffer alone,
or will You be there for me?

Even when the skies are darkened with ash and soot
So dark I cannot even breath.
You will be here for me always?
Will You let me die alone, or will you be here?
Why should I doubt the sliver of light in my soul, 
when I know You’re the saving salvation of my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

O suffering Lord
look down upon the sinners 
of your kingdom

We are the cause;
the cause of your pain.
The cause of your sadness.

You chose to die for us.
To redeem us of our sins.
It was your choice to suffer for us.

I lay myself down
at the foot of the cross,
begging forgiveness of sins all over.

Forgive us, Lord, we beseech you.
For all eternity keep us safe in your arms.
Safe from all distress.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I don't deserve you.
Don't deserve your love.
Nor your kindness,
no I don't.

Go ahead and leave me
floatin' here.
Stuck between drowning and rising.
You could leave me and I'll accept it
with a suffering heart.

You know I don't deserve you
but you come after me anyways.
You reach out for me and pull me close.
I don't resist because I know
I need you,
but don't deserve you.

No, I don't.
But you'll come after me anyways
I won't resist
because you know what I need.

I don't deserve you.
But you come after me anyways...

I really hope you all enjoyed this! Sorry its so long :P Please leave a comment! It will make my day! :D

Lent is Here and Friendship

So Lent has officially started today. Its Ash Wednesday now :) I haven't gotten my ashes yet but I have not gone to Mass yet today. My family and I will be going tonight though after dinner. Lent is a time for offering up sacrifices, doing little acts of kindness but most of all it's about growing closer to God. Of course you can grow closer to God any time! It doesn't have to be in the season of Lent. By now we're in the third month of the year and to a lot of people life is probably already rushing by and you're probably wondering where the time went. I know I am! With school and a few extra activities life has been busy lately and it's sometimes rather exhausting. But once again that's what Lent is for. A time to step back and try and focus on God. A time to focus more on praying. Its hard to do and it takes time but eventually you will get it. You fall and you just gotta get back up again. Like I told a little girl I know (I believe she's 8) when my sister and I went ice skating with friends  this past Saturday, like they say with horse-backing riding (and lots of other things too) if you fall you just have to get back on and ride.

~ ~ ~

So I've been thinking about doing a post on friendship lately and so I finally decided to buckle down and do it. I know its been a while since you've seen a post from me but hey, I'm never sure what to write :P Lame excuse okay, I know. But lets get onto the post (I'm gonna say right off, this will probably not turn out how I've been thinking it will). 

True friends are the people who are always there for you and never let you down. They are a true blessing; a gift from God. I honestly don't know what I would do without my best friends because they are truly special and wonderful to me. They've helped me through all the ups and downs I have. Most are like sisters too me and I love that extra special bond that has grown between us. First you get the bond of friendship and if it's meant to be that bond is strengthened into something lots stronger. Lately especially I've felt like with two of my best friends that our bond has grown especially stronger because they helped me through a tough time. One of them (my pretty much life long BFF) I got to spend one entire horrible day with. My younger siblings and myself had to go spend the day with them. Her family is really amazing. I hung out with my BFF and her older brother and it helped me because I felt so happy and was able to push my sad feelings away for most of the day. They  made me laugh and smile even though I didn't really want to do either if I had dwelt too much on my sad feelings. My BFF was there for me the entire day and I know she was. My other BFF let me bug her by calling her every day that whole week except for the last three days because I actually saw her all three days in person. She helped me through it by making me laugh, making me smile and just feeling happy. One phone call was basically spent with my laughing hysterically over whatever my BFF and her sister were laughing about on the other end. So friends that true are never worth loosing and will always care for you. They love you a lot and know exactly how to make you feel better. Are there to listen to you if you want to talk, are there if you need to cry. They are just a phone call away. A true friend would never turn down the chance to talk to you that's just not what friends do. The definition of 'friend' is someone you like and enjoying being with and a person who supports someone. Other synonyms for 'friend' are 'soul mate'and 'bosom friend' and I am sure there are more out there. There are many good quotes out there that some up friendship a few of which are:

"Good friends help you to find important things when you have lost them…your smile, your hope, and your courage."

"“Best friend” isn't just a name. A best friend is someone who’s there for you, no matter what. You can trust them, with anything and everything. Best friends share tears and laughs, almost like their emotions are intertwined. Most importantly, you can always count on a best friend."

"A friend is someone who can see the truth and pain in you even when you are fooling everyone else."

So, true friends are the best things in the world and can never be replaced. Harsh words can ruin friendships so never speak words that you will regret afterwards. The gift of a friend is truly something to treasure. It's a blessing from God.

Writing, rubber chickens and le r├ęsultat!

So for a couple days now I've been at a loss for what to write and so this past Saturday I complained to my friend about it and she told me to throw in a rubber chicken or a candy cockroach. Well, I went with the rubber chicken and I came up with this to get me moving again:

The girls sat quietly together just enjoying the silence together as sisters. The sound of something sliding up. Therese turned to look at her sister.
“What was that?” she whispered. Katarina shrugged and replied,
“I don’t know.” They went back to thinking quietly when another sound caught their attention again. It sounded like something being taken out and thrown to the ground. They looked to the window and saw that nothing was there. Therese got off her bed followed by Katarina.
“Where’s my screen?” Therese asked looking at the empty window. Katarina stuck her head out and looked up and down but saw nothing. Nothing at all whatsoever. She looked at the side of the house and squinted up at the roof but couldn’t see anything. Katarina pulled her head back in and looked at Therese. She shook her head.
“There’s nothing out there.”
“That’s really weird then.” Therese replied.
“Totally.” Katarina nodded her head. “I don’t have any clue for how it happened.”
“Oh well. I’m hungry; let’s go and start dinner.” Therese suggested.
“Okay.”
The two sisters turned and headed to the bedroom door. Suddenly there was the sound of something scuffling against the siding on the house. The girls started to turn back. Therese screamed and Katarina jumped two feet off the floor. Therese stared with wide eyes at the floor and Katarina with curious eyes. On the floor in between them lay a rubber chicken.
“What is that?” Therese asked.
“A rubber chicken.” Katarina picked it up with the tips of her fingers and held it in front of her. Therese calmed down and looked closely at it.
“That is extremely wild.”
“What just happened?!” Emiliana was standing in the doorway with a worried and wild expression on her face. Her younger sisters turned to her; Katarina still held the rubber chicken in her hands.
“A rubber chicken just got thrown into Therese’s room.” Katarina said with a hint of amazement.
“What?”
“That’s what I say.” Therese responded. Katarina walked back to the window and stared out at the street. She looked in both directions but saw no one. Turning back she shrugged.
“Oh well, let’s just bring this downstairs with us and have chicken for dinner!” She grinned a bit. Her sisters chuckled and the all headed downstairs to get dinner started.

Well, I hope you enjoyed reading it. Please let me know what you thought of it! :)
