Do you know someone who needs hours alone every day? Who loves quiet conversations about feelings or ideas, and can give a dynamite presentation to a big audience, but seems awkward in groups and maladroit at small talk? Who has to be dragged to parties and then needs the rest of the day to recuperate? Who growls or scowls or grunts or winces when accosted with pleasantries by people who are just trying to be nice?
If so, do you tell this person he is "too serious," or ask if he is okay? Regard him as aloof, arrogant, rude? Redouble your efforts to draw him out?

It really is a GREAT read! I encourage you all to take a few minutes to read through it.

"Mary had fluid building around her heart and they performed an operation to drain that liquid. The doctors say there is nothing they can do to stop the cancer. They are trying to keep Mary alive for seven more weeks so her baby can be delivered. Mary, while heavily sedated, is alert at times; while she cannot talk because of the respirator, she does write a few words down and responds to questions by moving or squeezing her hand. Late last night the Lord gave me the opportunity to hear each of her kids tell her good night, I love you, come home soon… as Josue held the phone to her ear."
Her name is Mary Anaya and her husband is Josue. Their friend from here will be updating when she gets more information.
UPDATE 10/21: The baby passed away yesterday and they have taken Mary off of the respirator.
UPDATE 10/21 evening: Mary has passed away. Please continue to keep her family in your prayers.

So you can see i cut just a bit off. And the sides are shorter, but they were like that before so i didn't really cut much from there. I usually wear it up anyway, so you can't really tell. I don't think it looks *too* bad hehe. And i didn't mean to cut in a straight line..i just randomly cut curls lol.

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup skim milk (or whatever you use)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1tbsp butter (for the pan)
Whirl the oats in a electric blender or food processor until oats are the consistancy of flour. Combing the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine wet ingredients in another bowl (or the measuring cup). Combine the two together and mix until just moist. Heat iron skillet/pan/griddle. Melt the butter and make sure its all coated (or use cooking spray). Use about 3tbsp for each pancake. Cook on med heat, flipping the pancakes when the bottoms are golden and the tops have little bubbles. Continue cooking until the other sides are golden and pancakes are done. Enjoy!
