Not By Me - By Helen Steiner Rice

Everyone Needs Someone
People need people and friends need friends
And we all need love for a full life depends
Not on vast riches or great acclaim,
Not on success or on worldy fame,
But just in knowing that someone cares
And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers-
For only the knowledge that we're understood
Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good,
And we rob ourselves of life's greatest need
When we "lock up our hearts" and fail to heed
The outstretched hand reaching to find
A kindred spirit whose heart and mind
Are lonely and longing to somehow share
Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
That life's completeness and richness depends
On the things we share with our loved ones
and friends.

Thank You Very Much - Thursday

It's Free Therapy Day!! That's right, it's Thursday, which means it's the Thank You Very Much day. The way it works is that you take out all your frustrations on people/things that peeved you off during the week and thank them in a very sarcastic way, for being who or what they are/doing what they did. I know everyone can use some free therapy, so go ahead and type yours out, grab my button from my sidebar, and then link up with me so that we can all share in each other's therapy.

So here it goes...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH - TO the woman that flipped me the finger yesterday while going downthe road... when i was doing nothing but driving.. she was the one going 10 miles an hour on a 25 mph and I didnt even honk at you

THANK YOU VERY MUCH - TO The weather why must you get cold again... even if youll be warm by this afternoon... wakin up to the cold I was done with weeks ago...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH - to the freakin pollen (though spring is my fav)... my eyes are so swollen and hurt so bad... i want to claw them out...

THANK YOU VERY MUCH - state of texas for your standardized TAKS test... that made me sit in a class for hours "watching" kids take your test

Your turn!!! Got to love TYVM Thursdays!!!

Blinded by the love I have
for not just my family but my friends
I try to see the good in all
even when it's my tears that fall
I never thought it would hurt so much
but I'm sorry is not enough.
I've tried so hard to forget
but the words still linger in my ears
But Blinded by the love I have
so much for not just my Family but my FRIENDS till the END.

Blinded by the love I have
for not just my husband and my kids
so much my heart is Full
memories made to be pulled
at later dates when I am old
and my kids have kids of their own.
Old and gray I'll still be Blinded by the love I have
For my husband, whom is my best friend
for my kids, that are my world
and yes still all my family and my friends
