You know that moment in Forrest Gump when Forrest stops running after having criss-crossed the continent several times.  The moment when he turns back to those following him and says something like " I think I've had enough ... I think I'll go home now ". W...

New Zealand (The Uplanned)
I sometimes think I must walk around with a big sign on my back that says " Come on God, give me your best shot, I can take it ... "  (written in invisible ink that only the Big G can read obviously). It's like my life (and here you have to accept that the ...
