Pride or Shame

I’d be amiss not to speak of the riots and uprising in Ukraine. Every where you turn people are talking about it. I went to Mass tonight and even Fr. Mike mentioned it. Not really sure whether I should feel pride or shame for this. Why? Well, those of you who know me in real life you all ready know this; those of you who are just following along and don’t know me in real life, I’m 1/4 Ukrainian. So I’m not really sure whether I should be proud to say I’m Ukrainian or ashamed to say I am. I guess all I can say is it just stands to reason why I said, what’s right isn’t always popular nor is what’s popular always right.

I guess this just leaves me to say it appears to be a blessing that my ancestors’ homeland of Ukraine is finally on the map and no longer do I have to explain where it is. I cannot say where in Ukraine my ancestors were from as I never asked and I regret not asking. Oh well, not much I can do now except do more research on ancestry.com and hope I find it.

God, bless every one of us!

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 36 years young!
