Upon further contemplation (and the checking of another friend's tag answers), I must give an addendum to my funniest people list. I would love to add my brother, Tyler, because he is a long-time laugh maker in my life (this, however, was not the person on the other friend's blog).

The person I forgot to mention as one of the funniest people in the world to me: Brian Regan. I was thinking only of people I knew, but man, I have probably never laughed as hard as the times I am either listening to him, quoting him, or re-hashing the whole Cd or DVD with my sister. Dag, is he funny!

On the Upswing

Things are looking better...heart mending from hurt...God is ultimately good in ALL situations and things...sister who claims she would marry me if I were a boy (in a totally non-creepy way)...friends who have stayed up late with me talking, listening, and giving sound advice (even when I don't believe it)...card from best friend with our hottie "girls with guns" look...Ohio boy (by that I mean man) giving me new perspective :P...leaders that challenge and care...apologies given and accepted...my mom listening and loving me for the emotional, verbally-processing person I am (thanks, mum!)...pink "princess" rock on my hand from a student to remind me...hope being restored...questions unanswered...heart okay with not having all the answers--sometimes ignorance truly is "bliss"...my heart learning how to guard appropriately and draw boundaries, not bitterness...new roommate who "gets" me...I could go on and on, so I won't.

Have you ever felt like a pawn? Trust me...it leaves a disgusted feeling in the pit of your stomach.
