None of us are perfect. We make mistakes...and when we do, we must ask for forgiveness. In the end all we can do is promise to love each other with everything we've got. Because love is the best thing we do.

And it's a beautiful thing...

In The End...

If we all listened to the words of Charles Dickens, we would all be better people. The calm writing, the depth of his characters and the social critique in his writings made him an author whose writings remain relevant decades after decades. One of my favorites...

Say Goodbye....

The Road...

Posted on January 7, 2019 at 2:45 PM

At times the road has been a long, difficult one.

But I'm glad it has been long and difficult, because if I don't go through hell to get there, the lessons are never quite as clear. 

In the end...

The great moments in your life may not be the things you do, they may be the things that happen to you. Now, I'm not saying you can't take action to affect the outcome of your life, you have to take action; you can't just pray for magic to happen around you...or think it just WILL...

But on any day, you can step out the front door and your whole life can change forever. I'm saying there's a plan.....That God, Jesus Christ, Allah, the universe or whatever your spiritual belief is....has a plan, and that plan is always in motion. A butterfly flaps its wings, and it starts to rain.

It's a scary thought but it's also kind of wonderful. All these little parts of the world (your world)  intertwined and connected to others...is constantly working, making sure that in the end we are exactly where we are supposed to be, exactly when you're supposed to be there. The right place at the right time. Always.

Looking so long for the words to be true....

Posted on January 3, 2019 at 7:50 AM

I've been looking so long at these pictures of you

That I almost believe that they're real

I've been living so long with my pictures of you

That I almost believe that the pictures are all I can feel

Remembering you, standing quiet in the rain

As I ran to your heart to be near

And we kissed as the sky fell in, holding you close

How I always held close in your fear

Remembering you, running soft through the night

You were bigger and brighter and whiter than snow

And screamed at the make believe, screamed at the sky

And you finally found all your courage to let it all go

Remembering you, fallen into my arms

Crying for the death of your heart

You were stone white, so delicate, lost in the cold

You were always so lost in the dark

Remembering you, how you used to be

Slow drowned, you were angels

So much more than everything

Hold for the last time, then slip away quietly

Open my eyes, but I never see anything

If only I'd thought of the right words

I could have held on to your heart

If only I'd thought of the right words

I wouldn't be breaking apart

All my pictures of you

Looking so long at these pictures of you

But I never hold on to your heart

Looking so long for the words to be true

But always just breaking apart

My pictures of you

There was nothing in the world that I ever wanted more

Than to feel you deep in my heart

There was nothing in the world that I ever wanted more

Than to never feel the breaking apart

My pictures of you

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."

Teddy Roosevelt
