* Miraculously I was able to get into the speech pathology program at Sac State. (Thank you Jesus)
* I got the iPhone. Yayy!!!!
* This summer my mother took me on a hot air balloon for the first time.

The Days of the Week According to Me

Marvelous Monday: As everyone knows Monday's are not the best day so brighten someones day and make it a Marvelous Monday for yourself and those around you. Bring donuts for the whole office, give a sincere compliment, etc...

Random Tuesday: A day of random acts of kindness. I.E. pay for someones coffee, Help an elderly person to their car, etc...

Wacky Wednesday: Don't be afraid to be be yourself and show your true personality. :)

Thankful Thursday: Think of someone that you are thankful for and write them a letter or let them know that you are very thankful for them and why.

Happy Friday: Smile all day because its almost the weekend. :) Spread the joy. :)

Super Saturday: Spend some quality time with family and friends. Play board games, eat popcorn, spend time cleaning, talking, eating, and don't forget to sing.

Spiritual Sunday: Spend the day with God but don't let Sunday be your only time spend with Him.

The Holy Bible

I just got through reading an article that made me pause. The article was about putting a new spin on the Bible to make it hip for the younger generations and making it Eco-friendly for the people that are a part of the green movement. The first of the "new" Bibles is called The Book. The purpose is to make the Holy Bible more appealing. On the inside are pictures of celebrities, recent tragedies, etc all used to help provoke discussion, understanding and interest. Here is a picture of the front cover.
The second is the Green Bible. Its purpose is pretty self explanatory. It is made from recycled materials. I am glad that people want to spark interest in reading the Holy Bible but is this the right way??? Taking the Holy out of the Bible to make it user friendly??? I am a bit sad. The Holy Bible is good enough for me.xoxo.
Laugh out Loud! That's what I am doing right now. :)

Mr Roomba

Yaaaaay! As of this week the Cabral/Velarde has gained new addition to the family. His name is Mr Roomba and he knows all about earning his keep. This morning Mr Roomba was hungry so I let him chow and I was getting ready for school. When Mr Roomba chows he is a bit loud and all of a sudden I realized the house was silent. Not good. I knew that Mr Roomba must have gotten into trouble and sure enough he started choking while trying to eat my Stats notes. Anyway, all of that to say Happy Monday and don't try to eat things that are too big for your mouth... You may choke.

Concepcion Cabral is a great man. He came to the United States many years ago from Mexico and earned his citizenship about 8 years ago. He is one of the hardest workers I have ever known and worked very hard to provide for his family. Tha raised his children telling them they were going to college so they could become successful. All three of his children went to school and received degrees. My mother and her sister got their masters and now my aunt is on her way to a Doctorate. About a year ago Tha came to the Rock Church and received the Holy Ghost for the first time. I will never forget that as long as I live. He was so excited he did his "excited dance." It was soooo cute. One thing about Tha is he is always happy and every time I see him he says in his broken english, "Anna are you happy?" I always reply "Of course I am happy" and he does his "excited dance." I love Tha and I am so thankful that I am able to spend Thanksgiving with him.


p.s. I call him Tha because when I was a baby just learning how to talk Tha was all I could say and it stuck.
WooHoo!!! Its Monday and we are 2 and a half days away from Thanksgiving. :) This week is going to be great! :)



Everyone should collect something and they do whether they realize it or not. Some people collect stickers, pins, shoes, Christmas ornaments, etc, and then there are others that say they don't collect anything but they are collecting friends, broken hearts, enemies, titles, etc. Some things that I am collecting at the moment are college units, friends, shoes, books, and clothes. Looking at my list of collections made me a bit depressed because all the things I am collecting will have no value when I come face to face with Jesus Christ. Well, I guess that I could say that I am collecting time spent with God and that is worth a whole lot. Anyway just a random thought. So tell me what are you collecting?

Thanksgiving is right around the corner so I thought I would put a list together of things I am thankful for this year. So here it is in no particular order.

My mother. She is the very best mother anyone could ask for and I am so thankful for her.
America. We are free!!!
The Bible (God's Word). My blueprint for life.
My job. I love it!!!!
My close friends. They rock!
Our leadership at TRC. They are not afraid to stand up for what is right no matter the cost.
Family. I am not sure what I would do without them.
Bro. Johannes and Sis. Tawni. They are doing such an awesome job with the youth.
Zara. She always keeps me humble.
French Cuff. That place rocks and so does Darcy and her daughter. Love them!
Accountability. Keeps me on track. Thank you to those that I am held accountable to.
Emily and James. They are great examples of young leaders. Love you both!
Cookbooks. I would be lost without them.
Rain. So relaxing.
Prayer. It changes things.

I could go on and on with the things I am thankful for but I will spare you all. What are some things that you are thankful for this year???
