“And now, a dutiful twin must choose between two lives …Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race, becoming the male responsible for keeping the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s bloodlines alive – he is to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished. As his first mate, the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body but his heart for herself – she sees the emotionally scarred male behind all his noble responsibility. But as the war with the Lessening Society grows more grim, Phury must decide between duty and love.”
I took this review from one that I found on-line. It pretty much tells you what you need to know about this book– better than I could have said it……….
So far, I can’t seem to get into this book. I am more than half way through it, and the story seems to be about everyone BUT Phury and Cormia! I just want to hurry and finish up and get to the next book. But this has been a good pick for my summer reading.
2 mile treadmill run @ 5:00 a.m.
So continues the 20 min in the morning Treadmill challenge. Each morning morning I will get up and do at least 20 min on the treadmill. If I don’t “feel” like running, I’ll walk until I “feel” like running, then I’ll run. The point is to make jumping onto the treadmill a habit once again. So far, it hasn’t been too bad. Since I’m a morning person, I get up before everyone else in the house in order to have some me time on the treadmill. It really makes my day better.
What do the leaves symbolize?
One leaf is for FAITH…
The second for HOPE…
The third for LOVE…
And the fourth for LUCK!
In Irish tradition the Shamrock or 3-leaf Clover represents the Holy Trinity: one leaf for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit. When a Shamrock is found with the fourth leaf, it represents God’s Grace.
History of the four leaf clover:
The four leaf clover is a universally accepted symbol of good luck with its origin ages old. According to legend, Eve carried a four leaf clover from the Garden of Eden.
“The clovers also occupied a position in the cultural life of early peoples. White clover (T. repens L.) in particular was held in high esteem by the early Celts of Wales as a charm against evil spirits.” Clover Science and Technology”. N.L. Taylor, 1985.
Druids held the 4 leaf clover in high esteem and considered them a sign of luck. In 1620, Sir John Melton wrote: “If a man walking in the fields find any four-leaved grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing.
The mystique of the four leaf clover continues today, since finding a real four leaf clover is still a rare occurrence and omen of good luck.
I am so in love with my new Tat!! It matches my hubby’s.
When I was a kid I don’t remember having Barbie Dolls. Only happy, well-adjusted children were lucky enough to own Barbie Dolls. I would envision owning a Barbie house, Barbie car, and enough Barbie clothes to have fashion shows. But it never happened. So, I never had a chance to be a Barbie Girl.
Why I like to Bratz.
They are beautiful!! It’s a shame that they are no longer in production. Their features remind me that you don’t have to be perfect to be acceptable. No, the Bratz eyes and lips are not perfectly proportional to their heads. Yes, their feet a huge. But boy are they fashionable.
I’m happy that having a little girl gives me the excuse to play with Bratz dolls. It’s like a cleansing of the soul. I don’t need Barbie Dolls to feel happy and well-adjusted. Anna and I can play Bratz and rejoice in the beauty of imperfection.
Degrading and demeaning.
Every time I go to the DMV- the workers take pleasure with having me leave because I have “missing documents”. It really doesn’t matter what documents I DO have!! How can a valid Birth Certification not be valid because it’s from another country?
“I need your SSN card”
“I don’t need your SSN card”
“I need your Marriage Certification”
“Oh… no, I don’t need your marriage certification”
It is always SOMETHING.
I realize that some people love to feel that they have power over some part of your life. Do whatever they can to make sure you don’t reach your goal.
That’s okay… I WILL NO longer let other’s actions affect my moods. So… no matter how many times I have to keep going back and forth to the DMV- I will my son his learner’s permit.
Fascination of the new wife.
Wanting to live someone else’ life.
Checking the blog to see what she says
Poisoning the kids to believe that love is dead.
Blaming the stars for the fate in her hands….
Knowing good and well
She never really had the man.
Love is not dead
You just cannot see
It never had anything to do with me….
Look in the mirror….
Stop your craziness….
It was because of your laziness…
This you might not know………
to hold on to love you must encourage it to grow….
before it’s too late….
don’t be buried in all of that hate…
find true love before it’s too late….
Love does not need to wear a mask
If you never reveal your true self
Love will forever ….
………be outside of your grasp.
It’s a distant star in the night sky…
Waiting on you to end with all of your lies.
Keep wondering what’s up..
keep poisoning their minds
what you send my way
I send it back.
you send cursing….
i send blessing….
