****************************
While walking in a toy store
the day before today,
I overheard a crayon box
with many things to say.

"I don't like red!" said yellow.
And green said, "Nor do I!"
And no one here likes orange,
but no one knows quite why."

"We are a box of crayons
that really doesn't get along,"
said blue to all the others
"something here is wrong!"

Well, I bought that box of crayons
and took it home with me
and laid out all the crayons
so the crayons could all see.

They watched me as I colored
with red and blue and green
and black and white and orange
and every color in between.

They watched as green
became the grass
and blue became the sky.
The yellow sun was shining bright
on white clouds drifting by.

Colors changing as they touched,
becoming something new.
They watched me as I colored.
They watched till I was through.

And when I'd finally finished,
I began to walk away.
And as I did the crayon box
had something more to say...

"I do like red!" said the yellow
and green said, "So do I!"
"And blue you are terrific
so high up in the sky."

"We are a box of crayons
each of us unique,
but when we get together
the picture is complete."

NOW IF WE COULD JUST LEARN
FROM THIS BOX OF CRAYONS
THIS WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE.

About Me I love to knit. Wait, let me rephrase that: I am obsessed with knitting. I love to read. My favorite books usually fall under the category of classic, but many modern books are great as well. I take Tae Kwon Do, which I love even when I hurt from all the kicking. I like to be around people, but at the same time can really appreciate alone time and the quiet that accompanies that time.

I don't really like labels when it comes to humans beliefs, because I don't feel that a label can accurately sum up all that a person is. I like to be outside in the fall because that is the time in Minnesota when I feel the weather is perfect, even though it feels short lived!

I get easily frustrated when I look around at all the people living in extreme poverty and see all the rich people in the world who are filthy rich but aren't in the slightest bit willing to help poor people. I hope to someday be able to donate as much money as I can to people who don't have as much as I do. It seems only right to help those who need it instead of being selfish with what you have.

If you want to know anything else, feel free to ask!

What/who changed my life and why There are so many things that happen on a daily basis that change who people are that it has become impossible to narrow it down to just one single thing.
