My limit: 11

...it wont let me
Well my friends, I have reached the limit of my patience. Eleven to be exact. I tried 11 times to leave a post in Wanda's EFX2 blog (and also at Laurie's, Lisa's, Windy's, Wozza's and the Moomin's) and EFX2 won't let me...

But I read everybody's post and I feel more or less "updated" on what's happening from everybody's end... Sent emails to some...

Sigh... I miss you guys...

at a loss...

...and you learn

After awhile you learn
the subtle difference between
holding a hand and chaining a soul
and you learn that love doesn't mean possession
and company doesn't mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
and presents aren't promises and you begin to accept
your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead
with the grace of an adult not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build your roads today
because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
and futures have ways of falling down in mid-flight
After awhile you learn that even sunshine
burns if you get too much so you plant your
own garden and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure
that you really are strong
and you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn...

Am at a loss for words...
She stated it all so beautifully...
Decorate your soul.

Aren't we all decorating ours with our own words in our own blogs as well as those "trinkets" we take away from the musings of our (digital) friends --- taking them into our own and making them ours too?

Its a blessing to hear from all of you even when MB is down. Thank you so much for keeping in touch! :)
