And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Return From Blog Break

Two weeks ago I thought I was about to die, because Ryan and I came down with Strep Throat the day before our vacation;  It was not pretty, but we managed to pull through.  Luckily, we were still able to make our trip to Corpus Christi to visit my parents.  And what a breath of fresh air that was.  We went to Port A, did a few shopping, and ate and ate, and ate. LOL.  My mom's carne guisada and fresh tortillas were to die for.

When we got back to Houston, Ryan and I celebrated our 8 year anniversary by having dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant in The Woodlands, Pallottas Italian Grill, watching a movie, and shopping.

Of course, as with any break, world events continue and trying not to write about them, or share my opinions was difficult, but I managed to stay off my blog during this time off.   

To close, I'd like to pray for those in Oklahoma who endured those awful tornadoes.  I cannot begin to imagine what this is like and I pray they will find solace in knowing many people love them.
