My Dirty Little Secret

My name is Allison and I am an action adventure movie addict! There I said it. Whew, that feels good! I feel like I should start a support group or something. I went to see The Avengers for Mother's Day. It was the only gift I wanted. I love, love, love this genre of movies! The Avengers and other movies of the like get my adrenaline pumping like nothing else. Not only do they drape the inner space of my mind on a regular basis, they also live on my computer screen, my desk at work and clothes. My favorite t-shirt is my husband's Captain America shirt. My kids and I will fight to the death to see who gets to wear it (ok not really but it comes close).

Needless to say, The Avengers far exceeded my expectations. The way the producers and writers combined the action with the humor was remarkable. I had never seen it done so well in a movie before. More than that, the portrayal of relationships between the heroes was powerful. The tension, the underlying emotions, the valiant team effort in spite of feelings and circumstances; simply brilliant!

Thanks Marvel Comics for effortlessly bringing me into the world of my boys! I shall never return to princesses and castles!

What about you? What is the one thing that most people don't know about you? What is your dirty (rated pg please) little secret?

Blessed Indeed

As I reflect on the last 41 years (yes, I know you had no idea I was that old because I don't look it) I am overjoyed at how truly blessed I am.
I have great friends, an amazing family and an indescribable God. Words can do no justice to how I am feeling today. Overjoyed simply doesn't describe it. So today I simply want to say thanks. Thank you for being a great friend. Thank you for being an amazing husband, precious kiddos and a selfless sister. Thank you for being the best dad ever! Thank you for being a reader who likes to laugh, or cry, at my crazy life from afar. Thank you for loving me in spite of myself.
As I sit her reflecting in the last 41 years I realize that for my birthday I could be given no greater gift than what I already have. I am blessed indeed!

Super Heroes

A Mother's Day poem from my son Cameron:

Thank you mom for all you do,
Cleaning, cooking, and loving too.
I couldn't think of what a better mom could be,
Nothing better could you give to Rob, my brothers and me!

Today is Mother's Day and for all you moms out there let me just say you are a superhero! I know being a mom doesn't always feel super but it's days like today that hopefully remind you just how treasured you are. If you happen to be one of the superest of heroes, a single mom, let me just remind you how incredibly amazing you are. I know you don't always feel appreciated and I know first hand how incredibly challenging your job is but know that you are especially treasured by our God in heaven and He sees your daily sacrifice. To all the super heroes out there that we call mom, Happy Mother's Day.
