~a friend is somebody you can be yourself around
~a friend is someone who will listen to you (even if they've already heard the story dozens of times)
~a friend is someone you can laugh with and laugh at
~a friend loves at all times (proverbs 17:17)
"A truly great friend is hard to find, difficult to leave,
and impossible to forget."

the other day i went to target to get a few things. while i was walking in, there was an older couple walking in a little ways ahead of me. they looked to be about in their 70's. they just happened to catch my eye, and the thing that really stood out to me was that they were holding hands. it was very cute, and it made me think of a song (yes, a country song, what else?). the song is called "real" by james wesley. this is another one of those songs where after you hear it, you say "now THAT is country music". there are several lines in the song that really relate to real life. the song is mainly about how reality shows really aren't REAL life, and he quotes a bunch of things that really are real. the couple made me think of the line in the song "real is a hand you hold for 57 years". and that is real, it's not like some bachelor or bachelorette show where you get together than break up a month or two later. "real" is falling in love with somebody after dating him/her, and ONLY him/her, for a while, than marrying that person and staying with that person for the rest of your life. as i listen to this song for the first time, i thought that's what i want. i don't want to fake my life for any reason, i want to look back on my life and say that my life was real. goodbye for now, this is chezzy louise.

it's that time of year again! the time of the year that i enjoy the most. not to say that the rest of the year i don't enjoy. but i absolutely love the christmas season. i love the decorations, lights, trees, food, music, snow, celebrating Jesus' birth, getting together with family, presents, and anything else i may have forgotten. i'm not the type of person who gets stressed over this type of stuff, trying to quick buy that last gift or two last minute. i just go with the flow, and if i happen to have the time and money, i will go out shopping for the presents i need to get. i might get a little flustered trying to figure out what to get, but nothing that gets me up in a tizzy.
for me, christmas is a joyful time, and it should be for everyone else too, even if you have to be wth some people that may annoy you, your mother-in-law, that crazy uncle, that annoying cousin or two, a cranky aunt. when you are forced to have to see them on christmas, don't let it get to you, enjoy the fact that you have a family to spend it with, i'm sure there are other people in the family who you really get along with. christmas is meant to be a day of joy, love, and laughter, even if it's spent with somebody who doesn't know the meaning of any or just one of those words. God gave us his son, and we are celebrating that, why should we be so unhappy and stressed about that.
throughout the christmas season, if you find yourself really stressed, just sit down and relax for a bit. pray, read a Bible verse, think of something that you are looking forward too, and remember that God is right there with you. those last few sentences could go with anytime of the year, but with it being the christmas season, a lot of people are usually more stressed during this season than they are the rest of the year. but whenever you feel stressed, just relax, God will get you through it. and with that, the wifferwoo is signing off, have a blessed christmas season.

well, i'm here again, to introduce you to the other half of the household pets. we'll start with the simple ones, missie and lexi. missie is katelyn's cat, she loves and adores being held and snuggled with. she enjoys sitting on people's laps, and will do almost anything for attention. she does have problems meowing though, it's a normal meow, but with the first half silent. so it sounds like "ow", we find it quite funny actually.

this song sums up all of country music and why i love it. country music is the only genre of music where you can sing about cancer, Jesus, and supporting the troops and still be loved by the fans. country artists will talk about their real life, they'll write songs about break-ups, and relationships and love, like every other genre. but country artists will bring their real life into their music, which makes the fans feel so connected to the singers. and, of course, there are some songs that aren't so nice and clean, but there are so many amazing songs that cover them up. THIS is why i love country music. written by "the wifferwoo" (this name was made up with the help of my cousin, nick, also)
