One Day You Will

A good friend states: "Is Looking Forward NOT Backward" so once again I turn to music to soothe my soul....................

One Day You Will

You feel like you're falling backwards
Like you're slippin' through the cracks
Like no one would even notice
If you left this town and never came back
You walk outside and all you see is rain
You look inside and all you feel is pain
And you can't see it now

But down the road the sun is shining
In every cloud there's a silver lining
Just keep holding on (just keep holding on)
And every heartache makes you stronger
But it won't be much longer
You'll find love, you'll find peace
And the you you're meant to be
I know right now that's not the way you feel
But one day you will

You wake up every morning and ask yourself
What am I doing here anyway
With the weight of all those disappointments
Whispering in your ear
You're just barely hanging by a thread
You wanna scream but you're down to your last breath
And you don't know it yet

Repeat Chorus

Find the strength to rise above
You will
Find just what you're made of, you're made of

Repeat Chorus

One day you will
Oh one day you will

New Year Resolutions 2010

Okay, come all, what are we thinking.
We don't really need a new year to make any resolution' do we......
These are all in random order:

~Drive slower & safer........I tend to drive a "tad" over the speed limit. I am a safe driver, but, driving fast doesn't always make me safe......I just drive the highway & we all speed, I will do better............

~Loose weight in a sensible manner & walk walk walk, this means get on my treadmill.....get up & moving..............this also could be staying Healthy & Fit....

~Staying in touch w/family & friends & even making some new friends on the way...........

~Take some risks..........I don't mean dangerous ones, I just need to step outside my box & do something, something different..........

~Write & read more..........(as my middle sister would say, write more talk less) I used to be a book worm, but life has taken me by I need to finish that line? Life is fast, life is hectic, but I believe I can get a half an hour a day to each.

~Writing is not a best feature I have, I would rather type away on my computer, so I must find a journal writing program for my computer........

This is a few & this is almost like my bucket list, but these are realistic goals I can maintain.
I will keep you up to date or if I add anymore.......................HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Happy New Year!

The Dance, Life........

I've heard this song 1,001 times and then some, but today 1-5-2010, it has a different meaning.
To some, this song is about a loss of love, a relationship, but not the way I think, today.

My loss is my Dad. It's been three years & not a day goes by that I don't think of him.
He showed me the dance, in a different way.
Life is too short.
Laugh. All the time, til your tummy hurts & the tears of joy roll down.
Live. As tho you only have today, the present, the gift. When we live, when we feel pain, we know we are alive & I wouldn't change that.
Love. To the fullest, don't hold back. Get up & your heart will mend, may take some time, but get on w/your life.
Do all of these, no matter what.

The Dance

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end, the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

Holding you, I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say? you know I might have changed it all

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

Yes my life, it's better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
But I'd have had to miss the dance

I'll never for get this day............................

My son running down our road to see his Papa, both sets of arms extended. This was Dad. No matter who you are or were, he was there. You didn't need to see him, his open arms always there. For me & most of all, my son!
What a privilege & an honor for me to call him Dad!
Thanks Dad for you & all you have done for me & Andrew! You are greatly missed!

Til we meet again.

HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR, Bring on 2010!!

Yes, 2010 is starting off like a traditional Maine blizzard...............since Thursday evening, 12-31-2009, we have has a continuous snow storm. ANd just wneh I finish plowing, more comes down.

These are huge & beautiful, wishing the sun was out so these icicles would sparkle....they also .........and can be deadly.......

The helpers, Nana & Andrew. Andrew follows after The Beast is done, cleaning up my mess. THANKS KIDDO!

One New Year's resolution, to visit my niece (well, her family too)in Florida more.........Florida has had a cold snap & she is wearing a Pink Boston Red Sox sweatshirt I got her, too cool!

Another resolution, to sit & relax more. To write more, whether it be to family & friends or in my journal.

No matter what, all enjoy 2010. It's the present, a gift, respect it!

"Take a moment to share your gratitude for the family and friends in your life; family means too much, friends are too valuable and life is too short to put off sharing how much they really mean to you. They are the gifts that make one's life truly rich." Thanks WW, well spoken!
