From my family to friendship the list has become a part of my character who I am and where life takes me. Sometimes I have been guilty of wanting comfort over reasoning. So I thought I would take you on a small ride over a lifetime to bring us up to date. I always felt from a child on abstract or as you would say separate from my surroundings, that is except for the world itself and the universe. From early on I realized that we are a very small part of a bigger picture. I again went through the years and it occurred to me that at a very young age I had very big thoughts. My love for poetry was shared with family members from the first time I had access to a library and continued throughout my life. It was not until my uncontrolled emotions took hold that I found the pen an answer to the woes of the world or was it the woes of the heart? I am grateful for the experiences that I have been granted, the places it has taken me and the lessons that were learned in the process. I have learned the depth and variations of friendship and love, the stirring of emotion of interaction and the reactions that surface from it all. I have skipped over the years where my soul was stagnant or dormant and I do believe it was. It was as if it followed the path of another rather than strolling along its intended route. Which brings me to date, it was and is a long and winding detour but we surface in our world of survival. I imagine that I am not much different than all of you as we are all surviving our own personal issues of one kind or another. Again I am grateful for you my friend who chooses and I say yes chooses to journey along with me. I have learned so much from you, you have written the book on unconditional love, trust, respect, and have touched on all the varied aspects of our emotions.
Touched a life and watched it grow and like a thread with a needle a new story is sown. Smiles and laughter, heartache and fear and on the darkest days wiped a few tears. Touched a life and watched it grow and like a thread with a needle a new story is sown.
I am thankful that when I was reaching
you were reaching back!
