You turned my world around… You taught me how to pick myself up – off the ground by your uplifting words and beautiful sounds ~ that echoed through my soul… bringing forward my whole of illuminating light… MY! You really … Continue reading
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” -Albert Schweitzer
Another weekend has passed… A weekend filled of love, laughs and giggles and fun times with friends and family who I am most grateful for. Friends and family are big pick-me-uppers when in time of need. Anytime I am feeling down, I know the exact people to turn to. Even when I am feeling good and happy, I know which friends and family members to turn to, to share such times with. I know each person who is a part of my life are a part of me for a reason. I have learned each person plays their special role and purpose to fill in my life just as I in their life. All of the people who are involved in my life, I have choose to learn from because each of them brings a certain twist to help me grow and develop. Although we beings are all connected in some way, we all bring our own uniqueness and characteristics to one another–to evolve and expand in such relationships we share together. We are all extraordinary in our own ways! …To the people who have always been there, who are here now and will be there, I am wholeheartedly grateful for you because it is YOU that brings out the LIGHT within me. Thank you, thank you, thank you–you beautiful beings. Keep shining and sharing the Light that is within you. I Love You. <3
Have a Happy, Light-Filled Day All.
Much Love Always,

A friend of mine posted this poem today and it took me back to when I first read it which was many years ago and it still stays with me. It sure has great influence in my life since so … Continue reading
Give you more time?!
Maybe it was because you were my first…
My first real boyfriend, my first to make love to, or better yet, my first worst.
My first worst, because my heart has been scattered…
Too many times-
from boyfriend to friend, friend to stranger, stranger to friend, back to not knowing if you are even alive,
By you–my heart is truly battered.
I used to vividly dream about you–about us being forever together,
Dreams of sharing life together, because of you I wanted us to be forever.
I used to gaze at you and get chills…
Them thrills and chills turned to cold, darkened frills that only wants to be killed. No more mountains to climb, no more steep obstacle hills with you…I have to keep in mind ‘the only way out is through.’
He says, “I am sorry, can you give me more time?”
I say, “Can you help me understand your definition of time because yours differs from mine.” Your perspective is something I just do not comprehend. Moreover, you can no longer hurt me as a girlfriend and I am starting to believe you have already served your purpose with me, even as a friend.
What is it that you want from me?
Why is it that you do not just let me be?
You appear, disappear…
No matter how far or near,
You seem to always reappear…
Tell me what it is you want from me so you can stop causing me such strife.
Stay or go. It’s really easy to choose, but I am not going to take you entering and then quickly slipping out of my life.
I am now a wife, to another man, you passed up your opportunity, leave me be… with my new family, who makes me completely, utterly rife.
We tried the whole friendship thing,
Please, tell me, tell me, as a friend…what can you offer and what can you bring?
As a friend, I only want honesty, loyalty, and to be there,
Because with those little in-and-out friend flings, my heart stings while your heart sings.
I’m the one on the other end who always bears to get hurt while your off doing you; leaving me hanging…just isn’t fair.
Do you dare?…
Dare to do me dirty once again, or are you really in this to be my friend?
