I always say "I'm going to be better at writing on here" after it's been so long, but even though I have all the time in the world to do it, I know me and my memory and I won't. So this time I'm not saying it!
Somehow tonight we got on the subject of tattoos. Now I've wanted one for a while now. Just a small one. Something that has significance to me and have it somewhere where I see it and not everyone. I've been looking around for one for around a year. I want something along the lines of a symbol for hope, strength, or endurance Just as a reminder to myself to never give up. The things holding me back are the money, finding something I love...not just like since it'll be there for forever, and of course the biggest one being I don't know how or if my body would handle it with the whole Lupus situation. Being on prednisone and blood thinners isn't the best combo for tattooing. I have found a couple I really like and if I can remember how to paste pictures I'll put them on here. They're West African Andrika symbols and they're meanings and the symbols and beautiful. The heart one stands for hope and faith and means "By God's grace, all will be well" and the fern stands for endurance and has no special meaning other than "fern".
Amongst looking for this special tattoo or tattoos, I stumbled across a sight that had pictures of matching best friend tattoos. So naturally I think that's a really cool thing and would totally do it. I don't even have one yet and I already want another!! I would get something with Mike too to symbolize our commitment to each other since we can't get married but I'm almost positive he would never go for it. The other 4 pictures are friendship symbols. The infinity sign is the one on the wrist. I kind of like the infinity sign sign that's made to look like a ribbon, it could be made purple for Lupus :). The symbols on the fee are a variation of the infinity sign and I think it is my favorite.
Seeing as it is 5:30 in the morning I should probably at least try to sleep.
