"Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love." Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet, Chapter 2, Love
I have not updated in a few days. The reason is because I officially joined the 9-5 crowd beginning Thursday. I have a job but I am still waiting for a training date which is dependent on an entity which takes sometime to produce the clearance needed to perform the job officially. I am still under contract to the other job but I'd rather do something right now that makes me feel I am earning my paycheck. I notified the contracting company through e-mail that I am taking another job while they are waiting for my clearance. I do not think it is unethical or illegal to do so. The people at my new job also know about the contract and the pending clearance.
For those who want to read The Prophet in its entirety, Geocities has a link where you can read it online. Here is the link: http://www.geocities.com/Athens/5484/gibran.htm
As an update for the Tribute to Hubby's open letter, here is the hubby's reaction to it:
I love you too. You said it all and the feelings are mutual. I truly love you with all my heart and will always love you..
And to answer your question of last night. That letter is what I wanted for Valentine's Day!
P.S. Next time I won't read things like this at work! Boo Hoo. :0)
Hubby is a road warrior. After he retired from the military service, he joined a company which required him to travel all over the United States. I miss him a lot when he is gone.
He is home today and we will be heading to Biloxi, Mississipi tomorrow. We will be staying at a beachfront hotel/casino and already bought tickets for Ezuru, a Cirque du Soleil production for their Sunday show. This is part of my valentine/anniversary gift. He wants to fly to New York and take me to the Broadway show, Lion King, but I want to save that for another day when we have at least a week to explore NYC. My hubby is so sweet. I know he does not enjoy the Cirque or Broadway shows as much as I do but he suffers through them to make me happy. He also bought me a real orchid lei because he knows I love orchids and Hawaii. Ladies, he is bound with me for life!
Have a great weekend everybody! I'll try to take a lot of pictures of Biloxi to share with you when I get back.
