“We are sisters. We will always be sisters.Our differences may never go away, but neither, for me, will our song.”

my oldest sister katie writes a blog. Katie’s blog led me to an amazing lady‘s blog named Stephanie Nielson. Her blog is called NieNie’s Dialogues. NieNie’s blog led me to her sister’s blog.

NieNie was in a terrible plane wreck with her husband Christian– this news broke my heart.
this is an article about their story.
it will bring tears to your eyes- but it will make you smile.
it made me smile, and then cry– & it reminded me of the sacred relationship sisters share,
& most of all, it reminded me of my sistershow much i love them & how blessed i am to have them.

The Format – On Your Porch
I was on your porch, The smoke sank into my skin,
So I came inside to be with you,
We talked all night,
About everything you could imagine,
‘Cause come the morning,
I’ll be gone,
And as our eyes start to close,
I turn to you and I let you know,
That I love you.

Well, my dad was sick,
My mom she cared for him,
Her loving nursed him back to life,
And me, I ran, I couldn’t even look at him,
For fear I’d have to say goodbye,

And as I start to leave,
He grabs me by the shoulder and he tells me,
“Whats left to lose? You’ve done enough,
And if you fail then you fail but not to us,
‘Cause these last three years, I know they have been hard,
But now it’s time to get out of the desert and into the sun,

Even if its alone.”

So now here I sit,

In a hotel off of Sunset
My thoughts bounce off Sam’s guitar,
And thats the way its been,
Ever since we were kids,
but now,
Now, we’ve got something to prove,
And I, I can see their eyes, T
hen tell me something, can they see mine?
‘Cause whats left to lose? I’ve done enough,
And if I fail then I fail but I gave it a shot,

‘Cause these last three years I know they have been hard,
But now it’s time to get out of the desert and into the sun,

Even if it’s alone, (Even if it’s alone)
Even if it’s alone.

I was on your porch last night,
The smoke, it sank into my skin.

A Machine Told Me to Drive Into A Lake!

GPS blamed as truck crashes on steep road

October 03, 2008 02:30pm,25642,24440686-5014239,00.html

A TRUCK driver led astray by his GPS device drove onto a road unsuitable for heavy vehicles and crashed, narrowly avoiding an 80 metre drop.

Police said the 49-year-old man from Ipswich was lucky to escape his semi-trailer when it rolled on a gravel corner at Mapleton in the Sunshine Coast hinterland yesterday morning.

The truck came to rest against a tree, dangling over an 80 metre drop.

The driver said he was following instructions from his GPS to travel between Brisbane and Kenilworth when it directed him onto Obi Obi Rd, which was unsuitable for heavy vehicles.

A Queensland Police spokesman said the driver had passed a warning sign at the bottom of the steep road that prohibited large truck access.

Police and the Department of Transport will investigate.

A spokesman for the RACQ said the state’s changeable weather and road conditions meant it was wise for drivers to check road conditions before they set out, instead of relying on GPS alone.

I drove my car into a [bleep] lake. Why you may ask did I do this? Well, because of a machine. A machine told me to drive into a lake. And I did it! I did it because I trusted Ryan’s precious technology, and look where it got me.
