when i see you cry
a small part of me dies
i want to shelter you from every storm
create a world that is safe
for you to be free from pain
i want you to move through life as you please
independently with abundance of laughter and joy
but life is not always fair
bad things happen to extraordinary people
and despite my deepest desire and my fervent prayers
i can’t make it better
so when i see you cry
part of me dies…….
release all my thoughts
may my hand express the heart
let my words send love

when you have nothing to prove,
nothing left to give,
nothing left to receive,
……and you still remain peacefully and joyfully steadfast.

true love is not easy, in fact it is down right hard.
loving someone when everything is going well is easy, so easy it makes me laugh.
real love is when you stick around for the hard stuff.
the real hard stuff isn’t financial troubles or family squabbles…..
if you are physically well, you can work two jobs, it might be hard but, if you are healthy it is doable.
family issues can be worked out if you have the health to endure them or capable to physically pick yourself up and move.
but illness………it shakes you to the core. lives are transformed in an instant, roles change, individuals get lost in the symptoms leaving the caretaker to fed for themselves in a sea of uncertainty.
only with true love do you have the freedom to heal.
Today, may you experience a sense of healing, no matter how small.

Sending a sincere and loving THANK YOU to all of you out there who make this world a better place. I read your achievements daily……helping others through your encouraging words, beautiful and creative writings, beneficial information and prayers.
YOU are what makes this world so special and I am honored to be a very small part of it.
May God bless each of you with a peaceful Christmas season and a joyous New Year.
“To kindness and love, the things we need most.” – The Grinch from Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch 2018
Even The Grinch knows what is most important! 🙂
yourself (himself, herself, ourselves, themselves)
Everyone wants to feel accepted and loved, no matter what his or her circumstances may be. Every single act of kindness, no matter how small, moves this planet in a positive direction.
May your day bring you a smile.
true peace is a result of patience of the mind,
contentment of the soul,
and a love filled heart.
……caring enough to do something about it
