Hi friends, hope you all are having a good Sunday.Nothing too much exciting going around here today, I do have a story to share with you all instead of boring you with my worthless day so here you go, enjoy......... I Love You All Lisa XOXO
An Afternoon in The Park
There once was a little boy who wanted to meet God.He knew it was a long trip to where God lived, so he packed his suitcase with cupcakes and a six pack of root beer and started his journey.
When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old woman.She was sitting in the park just staring at some pigeons.The boy sat down next to her and opened his suitcase.He was about to take a drink from his root beer when he noticed that the old lady looked hungry, so he offered her a cupcake.She gratefully accepted it and smiled at him.Her smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it again , so he offered her a root beer.Once again she smiled at him.The boy was delighted!
They sat there all afternoon eating and smiling , but they never said a word.
As it grew dark , the boy realized how tired he was and he got up to leave, but before he had gone more then a few steps, he turned and ran back to the old woman and gave her a hug.She gave him her biggest smile ever .
When the boy opened the door to his own house a short time later his mother was surprised by the look of joy on his face.She asked him "What did you do today that made you so happy?"He replied "I had lunch with God" But before his mother could respond he added "You know what? She's got the most beautiful smile I've ever seen"
Meanwhile the old woman also radient with joy, returned to her home.Her son was stunned by the look of peace on her face and he asked "Mother, what did you do today that made you so happy?"
She replied "I ate cupcakes in the park with God" But before her son responded she added "You know , he's much younger then I expected"

Happy 39'th Birthday Jorja !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jorja, you are without a doubt the most amazing actress on TV today, The way that you do a scene never fails to impress me , the scene that affected me the most was from Nesting Dolls when you were crying and telling Grissom about how your mother shot your father in self defense and how he was abusive to you as a child.I was wiping away tears of my own , it brought back so many bad memories and I cried all night after that episode was over, when I first started watching CSI I was struck by how similar your character Sara Sidle was to me.I saw so much of me in Sara it blew my mind.
The thing that made me admire your character Sara Sidle the most on CSI is that even if you have been to hell and back growing up you can still prevail and become an inspiration to others.There were times in my life growing up when I was miserable beyond words,when I was a freshman in high school I was at a very low point in my life and I thought about suicide, , I was just ready to give up on life and did'nt want to deal with the pain anymore or the emptiness that lay inside my soul.I sought profesional help and with the help of friends and some family I fought my way out out of the black hole but it was'nt easy.
One thing that I really admire about Jorja is that her beauty is more of a girl next door type then a Hollywood starlet, she seems approachable and not the least bit stuck up or arrogant.She has a very likable quality to her that is rare among celebrities nowadays, I grew up feeling ugly and I never thought I could accept myself for who I was but Jorja taught me that you do'nt always have to be perfect looking to be on TV, Jorja looks like a real woman and she gave me the strength to accept myself and try to forget about all the negative coments about myself my dad had fed me as a child.All the hate and mean comments from my dad had done some serious damage to my self -worth and brick by brick I was able to repair some of the wall that had been destroyed inside of me.If I am ever lucky enough to meet Jorja I will tell her how much she means to me and how she has changed my life for the better.
Some of you might be puzzled as to why I admire Jorja so much but I can only say you would have to have walked a mile in my shoes as a kid with a verbally abusive and sometimes physically abusive dad to truly know and understand what it was like. I never ever thought that I would feel good about myself and be able to find acceptance within me. I still have days where I feel like a nothing.I truly hope that none of you have been in that dark place before because it was not fun.
Jorja I hope I can meet you someday and tell you what an inspiration you are to me and so many others.When I sent you that necklace that time and you were wearing it on CSI that was one of the coolest things that ever happened to me.So I wish you a wonderful birthday tommorow and I think you are just an amazing human being as well as an actress who I admire a great deal.And another thing if Grissom ever wants to marry you on CSI you had better not turn him down !!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Birthday Jorja, I hope you have the most amazing birthday ever, I love you Jorja , you will always be my #1 favorite actress ever !!!!!!!!! Your favorite CSI fan Lisa
