I am a women truthfully I cant deny it I take full responsibility
.But I am not a stereotype, I don't live up to the hype, I don't cook or wash dishes, I speak my mind and I don't grant wishes. So if you think that a women is another word for maid Your sadly mistaken. Its a revolution, we aren't dumb, we have minds and we have thoughts. I am a women Faithfully, but don't think women are something to be looked at and watched. cook and clean, not heard only seen. I am a women truthfully faithfully and always. I cant deny it I take full responsibility. But I am far from the all-American stereotype and I don't live up to the common hype

Things I've learned:

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just assholes.

I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others, they are more screwed up than you think.

and last, but certainly not least, I've learned you can keep vomiting long after you think you're finished...

I hope these made someone smile!

Ok, thanks for bringing the thread alive, now let's keep going.

Ain’t It Fine Today?

Douglas Malloch

- What’s the use of always cryin’
Making trouble last?
What’s the use of always keepin’
Thinking of the past?
Each must have his tribulation,
Water with his wine
Life it ain’t no celebration
Trouble? I’ve had mine ~
But today is fine.
- Sure, this world is full of trouble ~
I ain’t said it ain’t.
Lord! I’ve had enough and double,
Reason for complaint.
Rain an’ storm have come to fret me,
Skies were often gray;
Thorns and brambles have beset me
On the road – but, say,
Ain’t it fine to-day!
- It’s today that I am livin’,
Not a month ago,
Havin’, losin’, takin’, givin’,
As time wills it so
Yesterday a cloud of sorrow
Fell across the way;
It may rain again to-morrow,
It may rain – but, say,
Ain’t it fine to-day!

to all the mothers i found this and it touched my heart as i hope it touches yours too

The Past

She came tonight as I sat alone..
The girl I used to be ....
And she gazed at me with her earnest eye
And questioned reproachfully:

Have you forgotten the many plans
And hopes I had for you?
The great career, the splendid fame,
all the wonderful things to do?

Where is the mansion of stately height
With all its gardens rare?
The silken robes that I dreamed for you
And the jewels in your hair?

And as she spoke, I was very sad
For I wanted her pleased with me...
This slender girl from the shadowy past
The girl that I used to be.

So gently rising, I took her hand
And guided her up the stairs
Where peacefully sleeping, my babies lay
Innocent, sweet, and fair.

And I told her that these are my only gems,
And precious they are to me;
That silken robes is my motherhood
Of costly simplicity.

And my mansion of stately height is love,
And the only career I know
Is serving each day in these sheltered walls
For the dear ones who come and go.

And as I spoke to my shadowy guest,
She smiled through her tears at me.
And I saw the woman that I am now
Pleased the girl I used to be

I listened to this song everyday for the first year after my ex left. It's by Sara Groves and it's called Less Like Scars

It's been a long year, but I'm climbing out from the rubble. These lessons are hard, healing changes are subtle. But everyday it's less like tearing more like building. Less like captive, more like willing. Less like breakdown more like surrender. Less like haunting more like remember.

And I feel you here and you're picking up the pieces, forever faithful. It seemed out of my hands a bad situation. But you are able. And in your hands the pain and hurt look less like scars and more like character.

Less like a prison more like my room. Less like a casket more like my room. Less like dying more like transcending. Less like fear, less like an ending.

And I feel you here. And your picking up the pieces, Forever Faithful. It seemed out of my hands a bad situation. But you are able. And in your hands the pain and hurt look less like scars.

Just a little while ago. I couldn't feel the power or the hope. I couldn't cope. I couldn't feel a thing. Just a little while back, I was desperate, broken, laid out hoping you would come. And I need you. And I want you here. And I feel you. And I know you're here.

And you're picking up the pieces, Forever Faithful. It seemed out of my hands a bad bad situation. But you are able. And in your hands the pain and hurt look less like scars and more like character.

I cried through the whole thing. It's beautiful. I knew there was a reason I would get up , shower and put on some new (er) duds at 4:30 am! It has been years since i have felt this alive and I owe it all to threads and the kindness and honesty my new friends bring to the table. I know I still have a journey ahead, but what first steps they have been!

Am going to Annapolis today to see if I can find Melanie Beattie's books. They are all checked out at the library. What a day this will be!!

Walking Your Path
Living A Spiritual Life
Throughout the journey from birth to death, many people choose to question life, strive for improvement, seek out knowledge, and search for the divine. Simply put, this is the essence of spirituality. One's spiritual practice can take on many forms, because embracing the spiritual is a very personal pursuit. While many people do relate their spirituality to a God or Goddess, this quest for the divine, or oneness with the universe, always springs from within. It doesn't matter where you find your spiritual path. We are all fundamentally spiritual beings and the essence of that lies in knowing one's true self and finding a peace that comes from within rather than the outside world. It is in remembering this that we awaken to our personal path.

The spiritual path springs forth from a daily routine that reaffirms our personal connection with a purpose or a way of life. Practicing compassion, gratitude, appreciation, forgiveness, generosity, meditation, and taking care of one's wellbeing can all be a part of one's spiritual life. If you are new to exploring your personal spirituality, remember that this is a process. You may want to spend a few moments each day giving yourself a spiritual gift. Try a new form of meditation, visit a sanctuary, or explore a specific deity.

Accepting the importance of spirituality can be a healthy decision, because a spiritual practice tends to include habits that promote healthy living. Take the time to carefully determine the action, thought, and ritual that most speaks to your soul. Remember that your most profound spiritual experiences may also come from the simple intricacies that make up your life. See the interconnectedness of all things. As you explore your "inner work," you will be walking your spiritual path and feeling your oneness with the universe.

I like this:

ATTITUDE: by C. Swindoll
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance,giftedness or skills. It will make or break a company, a church, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the past, we cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

One to take to church for *Ras*...
YOU ALL PLEASE DO IT TOO
if not church deep in your heart

My Life Is Just a Weaving…

My life is just a weaving
Between my God and me
I do not choose the colors
He works steadily
Sometimes he weaves sorrow
And I in foolish pride
Forget he sees the upper
and I the underside
Not till the loom is silent
And shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And explain the reason why
The dark threads are as useful
In the skillful weaver’s hand
As are the gold and silver
In the pattern he has planned

(((hugs to all here)))

Whilst in the pursuit of a grand and wonderful dream, should you all of a sudden round a bend and see before you an enormous uncharted mountain with towering cliffs, jagged rocks, and seemingly impenetrable walls, just consider it a sign that your dream is considerably more worthwhile than you had previously imagined, and that you are exactly where you're supposed to be.

for all the insomniacs:

. . . Before the passing moment tilts

and falls to melancholy,

laughter sounds

in quiet raindrops.

There is happiness found in simple sharing and deep learning developed from its habit.

Enjoy the day.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

what if you slept?
and what if,
in your sleep
you dreamed?
and what if,
in your dream,
you went to heaven
and there plucked
a strange and
beautiful flower?
and what if,
when you awoke,
you had the flower
in your hand?
