really wishing......

that we could still go to the beach

and that soccer wasn't over

and that Aunt Amy gets more news on the adoption

but most of all, that everyone had clean water. DONATE.

Its 10:20........ and my name is Emily

So Morgan told me to write something on her blog, anyway, I wrote this a little while ago, hope it says something to you.

“People come into your life for a reason
Some stay forever
And others may drift out
Slowly fading until they become
But just a memory
They entered your life for
A short while
Made an impact on who you are
And will become
But even as the memory
Of them starts to fade
You realize that they never
Really knew you
As you
But they only knew you for
Who they wanted you to be
And as you ponder on that fact
You start to understand
That they where never
There for you
But only there to help themselves
To all you have to offer"

(Emily Smith)
