Some Random and Some Coffee Chat

I'm linking up with Stacy for some randomness.

One of my co-workers really brightened my day last week with these:

I don't know (for sure) who sent them, but I have my suspicions.  She wouldn't admit it, though.  I think not knowing as a certainty is part of why it really cheered up the bad week I was having.

I take a migraine preventative medication, and I ran out about ten days ago.  I'm had a headache every day since.  It feels like my head is in a vise.  Nauseated.  Exhausted.  Yep, it's just a party over here!  I have migraine medicine, but I only take it once or twice a year, and when I do, I have to lie down for at least half an hour.  It makes me feel worse at first, then all the pain subsides, usually within an hour.  I haven't been taking it, even though I feel like it, because I'd rather prevent them than treat them.  I finally get to see the doctor this afternoon.

I finally saw the new Beauty and the Beast!  I loved it!  I also loved the changes they made in the story line.  Emma Watson was fabulous.  I had no idea she could sing!  Have you seen any comments or articles about there being a gay scene in the movie?   There was a funny part in the end where two men ended up partnered. That was just funny.  And maybe LeFou had intentions toward Gaston, but it wasn't blatant.  This article calls it, "In your face."  There was nothing offensive!  Just my opinion.  I adored it!

And now, Coffee Chat with Rory Bore.
Today, her topic is...
It's Angel Girl's birthday today.  
What advice would you go back and 
give your 10 year old self?

I've been asked to write letters to my younger self before, but it brings up a lot of feelings and memories I don't care to talk about or especially relive.   What I would say to myself is this:
This is me at 8 years old.  I couldn't find a picture of 10 year old me.
Glasses (I got them when I was ten) do not make you a nerd.  When you get to high school and college, you will be grateful for those "nerdy" grades you got!  Also, don't try so hard to fit in.  Don't compromise your values just to be accepted by those kids you think are popular or cool.  When you feel unwelcome, or you feel lonely, God is there for you.  Continue to stay active in church.  You are smart.  You are kind and sensitive.  And you are a child of God.  You can accomplish anything you set your mind to, but set your goals on personal preference rather than what everyone else is doing.  Enjoy being a kid.  You'll grow up soon enough.  Love you!

Good advice! Especially about being a child of The Almighty. That's the most important part.

So sorry about your headache malady! Hope you're feeling better soon! GORGEOUS flowers! So nice when someone thinks of you and brightens your day like that! :)

I'm jonesin' to go see the new Beauty and the Beast - trying to figure out schedules so me and Princess Nagger can see it together. :)

Awesome advice for your 10 year old self! Love it!!

I cannot wait to see Beauty and the Beast!! I am hoping maybe this weekend. And a gay scene is not going to bother me - I mean, I get that's our world now and the ones NOT surprised are actually the kids. They have more awareness then we give them credit for, and are far more accepting of others.
I think your letter is perfect!! I love that you said "child of God" because so many feel a lack of belonging to anything -- and being part of God's family is something awesome!!!
