Rough Week Comes to a Close

Finally, my week of torture is over, and it couldn’t come sooner. My rough week ended with finding out that I didn’t get the seasonal job I was hoping for — I was trying to be a seasonal engraver at a local customizable gifts shop. Oh well, there are other things that can be done and will be done over the course of this holiday season.

That’s right, I’m starting to cheer up again and that means more cheery song lyrics tonight. šŸ˜€ Anyway, the song lyrics tonight make me think of a few people. These people include, but not limited to (and in some sort of order): my dad, Steven, Catherine, my army friend, my Vietnam vet friend, Fr. Dennis, and Fr. Mark. So if you’re one of these people and are reading my blog, thanks for being there for me and know just how much you’ve helped me this week and always. Also just want to thank all of my devoted readers who are reading this despite how horrible I have been and hateful it seems I became this week. I guess we all have those weeks. šŸ˜• Sorry again.

I used to see in black and white
Never something in between
Waitin’ on the love of my life
To come into my dreams

Everything in shades of grey
Never any blues or greens
I needed someone else to turn to
Someone who could help me learn to see
All the beauty that was waiting for me

You…you put the blue back in the sky
You put the rainbow in my eyes
The silver lining in my prayers
And now there’s colour everywhere
You put the red back in the rose
Just when I needed it the most
You came along to show you care
And now there’s colour everywhere

My life was so predictable
Never any mystery
But ever since you shined the light
All of that is history

Now I have a hand to hold
And a reason to believe
There’s someone in my life worth living for
I was hanging ’round just wishin’ on a star
To put the happiness back in my heart and

You…you put the blue back in the sky
You put the rainbow in my eyes
The silver lining in my prayers
And now there’s colour everywhere
You put the red back in the rose
Just when I needed it the most
You came along to show you care
And now there’s colour everywhere

I left those hazy days behind me
Never to return again
Now they’re just a faded memory
‘Cause baby it’s all so clear to see
The beauty that was waiting for me

You…you put the blue back in the sky
You put the rainbow in my eyes
The silver lining in my prayers
And now there’s colour everywhere
You put the red back in the rose
Just when I needed it the most
You came along to show you care
And now there’s colour everywhere

You care and now there’s colour everywhere
There’s colour everywhere
There’s colour everywhere

(“Colour Everywhere” by Deana Carter, 1998)

God bless!

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 35 years young!
