Angels on my team...

Those who enter into your life when things are hard and bring a smile to your face and hope into your heart...those people are truly sent by angels. Angels on my team, on my side. Smiling faces with strength and encouraging words. They fill a day with jokes and laughter when the day began with tears. They are giving and their friendship seems to know no boundaries...they are just there. Just when I needed them. They are truly angels on my team.

Thank you so much for being my friend! Your friendship means everything to me.

Learning

Sometimes in life you don't get what you want, you don't get what you think you need. Life seems to take twists and turns that really are so far from what had been dreamed of in the initial plan, let alone in the multiple revised editions. These are the times that you learn to be still and quiet and listen.

Listen to the voices deep within yourself. Listen to the voices of those around you that care. Listen to the voices of those around you who really don't. Listen to your heart. Then, you take a deep breath, and you take the next step. Begin a new journey, a new direction, and hope with everything that you are, that the journey will be a worthwhile one with positive and happy moments.

I have learned to recite the prayer of serenity and do so more than once daily. Things do get easier, sometimes...they get harder at the same time. I am learning that the walk is really what makes the difference. I am learning to accept myself for who and what I am, where I am going, and to respect whatever that is, without prejudice, without fear. I am learning to live again.
