splitting headache
thoughts scrambled and confused
no true comfort
not support
nothing but the pain
and the emptiness

some days it's best to take a nap and forget everything for that space of time where dreams can come true, and happiness and completeness are there.

arms that hold you are more than they seem, they are the warmth that keeps you, the strength that sustains you, the spirit that comforts, and the love your heart needs

Thanksgiving Day

Today being Thanksgiving, makes it a day to recall all the gifts and blessings that the year has brought. A time to say thank you. A time to know I'm blessed. To my many friends, I say thank You most of all. For being my brightest light in an often times darkened world. Thank you for accepting me as I am. *laughing* The insane, the Crazy, the caring, the loving, the depressed, the ME, that makes me, me. Thank you for all you give and have given. A time to thank God for all the little things we so many times overlook, like the falling of a leaf in the fall, a bird in the wind, a frog on the door step, a star shining bright above. The ability to walk to rise and wake.

A time to thank family, for being there, for putting up with my moods, and my dying spirit. A time to to reflect and a time to recall.

Precious Gifts ALL!!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Can words make you feel the touch
fingers of love intertwined within the words
can you feel the others heartbeat
know the warmth and feel the glow

Can words portray a real sense of being
when their is no vision
no voice
no physical contact?

Can the words be enough to know that love is there
to know the longing and the desire of another
can words let you hear the screams, the tears, the longing
can they truly speak for the heart?

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.
