***Breaking News***

My dad got a job!!! So what you say? He is 55 and has been out of a job for close to 2 years since the granite shed he was working in closed. Can you imagine? Working hard for 40 years of his life to be let go a mere 10 years before he planned to retire and receive his pension. His unemployment was 1 week from running out after his 2nd extension and after many failed attempts to obtain a job in his field he has taken a $12 an hour job and working weekends. He is grateful, grateful for what he has, not ungrateful for what he has not. For all of us who dislike our jobs it is time to step back and think for a moment….

There are many what if’s in life and sometimes those what if’s might just happen. They have and will happen to many of us.

It is what it is~

Congratulations! You have found yourself on the new and exciting blog of me, Danielle; wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, worker...shall I continue? In my attempt to vocalize my thoughts I have decided to take my words to the web, lucky you. On this blog I may post about the meaning of life, the meaningful things in life, or the meaningless parts of life that we all take part of day after day.

My thoughts on the meaning of life will bring looks of ponder to your face. The meaningful things I will share will bring a smile to your face. The meaningless parts of the day to day I will share will hopefully help you see they are in fact not the meaningless parts at all. I may rant and rave, I may digress and get a bit wordy but this I promise you is the home of the not-so-typical twenty something.
