Hey I'm German too!! AND was once in love with a full blooded German man...and no he didn't hurt me- he was beautiful. Somedays I do think he'll back, and oh my gosh... feel another Katharine McPhee song coming...this is no kidding here!!

have always dreamed of this

I'll admit that there was something I missed

Wonderin' if it is for real

Every mistake, every wrong turn

Every time I lost my way

Led me to this, moment of bliss, tonight

[CHORUS:]

With you, finally I can break free

With you, I saw a changing in my destiny

Dream come true, it's so funny now that I see

How different life turned out to be

You were always by my side

That you believed in me was enough reason why

I didn't stop, didn't give up

Even if I sometimes lost hope

I did my best, and I am blessed

In life

[CHORUS:]

With you, finally I can break free

With you, I saw a changing in my destiny

Dream come true, it's so funny now that I see

How different life turned to be

Can I get any higher

Tell me, does it get any stronger?

I owe it to you, that I made it through

I never could've done it, without you

[CHORUS:]

With you, I can break free, yeah

With you, I saw a changing in my destiny

Dream come true, it's so funny now that I see

How different life turned out to be

[CHORUS:]

Oh, cause of you, I saw a changing in my destiny

Dream come true, it's so funny now that I see

How different life turned out to be

I've realized that it's my destiny

LL, Glad to meet a Katherine M. fan
Your posts have been the highlight of my weekend. Got off yesterday in town, but ready to meet back up with you guys. I know its time for me to cook. So, in the cool mountain nights, get ready for some shrimp gumbo and potato salad. If you don't like it, eat some leftover smores!!!

Alrighty all- this is right where I'm staying along this journey, not moving on from here (well actually just heading over to the boundaries thread!). But when you pass back though just wave and know that I have finally found a peace so I can move on...

I started out this journey with you all still filled with confusion, some pain, but I feel so great today. Thanks so much Jenni for starting this thread.

Jenni~ this has been an AWESOME way to relieve a lot of what I was feeling. Sorry about all my singing ; ), I told ya gf!! I just LOVE music- all the way from Mozart to Led Zeppelin. And singing, I have always found to be uplifting or a way to get me to feel something I need to or want to feel inside. So with my goodbye here, I just want to say that I am so very glad that I got to know more of the beautiful people who post on these threads. Looking forward to seeing many of you around.

Bye all- and thanks again Jenni- I’m sure I’ll be making another one of your trips- this has been a blast- I’ve cried, I’ve laughed, I’ve let go, what could be better than that for recovery and healing?!! Hopefully the next one I'll be put ALL together...now thats a scary thought!!

OK. Now I MUST part with just one last sang : )….this is my dedication to the man who closed a door between him & I 25 days ago… I have come ALONG way since then…in fact just since this morning!!!

Love you all, LL

I woke up early this morning around 4am...With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate

I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep
But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake

Ever since you found yourself in someone else's arms
I've been tryin' my best to get along
But that's OK
There's nothing left to say, but

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me

And take your cap and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me, you'll think of me

I went out walking trying to clear my head...I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left...
I guess I'm feeling just a little tired of this...And all the baggage that seems to still exist

It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
Is not knowing what we could have been...What we should have been
So

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cap and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me

Someday I'm gonna run across your mind...Don't worry, I'll be fine
I'm gonna be alright...While you're sleeping with your pride...Wishing I could hold you tight
I'll be over you
And on with my life

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em…

LL, I'm sorry you are leaving! Are you going because you feel you are at a stronger place in your heart, now? If so, I'm so very happy for you! ELATED!

But if you're leaving, because you think your singing is a problem, Honey, that isn't bothering anyone. It's UPLIFTING and just what we need!! We still need your strength to grow off of. When I said "Unstable Emotions" only on this trip, I only meant at the beginning of the trip.

But if you feel it's time for you to go, I understand. I only wish this wouldn't have happened in "Chugwater, WY."!! LOL! I hope this place can fulfill all of your hopes and dreams!

So, LL, everytime I pass thru Chugwater, I WILL think of you! (And this will apply in real life as well! Seeings how I often travel between my hometown to Denver.) So now, Chugwater, Wyoming will have new meaning to me! FOR REAL!

So HAPPY TRAILS, Lovinglife! You will be missed! We wish you the best in your adventures of life and all of the strength and courage in doing so! Thank you for all you have contributed, here! It will be remembered ALWAYS!!

Your Sister on Recovery Trail...

Jenni

Boy! The things that I miss when I'm gone for a few days!!

Sounds like you've had one heck of a ride and it's not over yet!

I know for a fact that the road can be bumpy, curvy, dangerous, fun, freeing, confusing, and a path to a healthier place all at the same time.

I'm on that road with you. I've been in all of those places. I'm still traveling. I'll never stop. I'll never get off. I'll never stop growing.

Look back and reflect on where you've been, but never go back. You can never go back. That place and person no longer exists.

Just came back from Butte, Montana. Well, I watched a movie made there anyways... Lonely Star. It was about Howard the Coward, the star of movies who left his women and children behind.

I cant believe I actually was in this town!! On the way to Glacier Waterton Int´l Peace Park. I passed by Casper (yes, Casper) and Cheyenne too, in Wyoming. The Far West has a lot to do with the Pampas region in South America.

So no wonder this train ride is so comfortable to me! I wish I felt so comfortable with my own territory right now... Oh, well, its better from the days my great-grandpa moved here. His cold Prussian blood kept melting down through the German childhood which got to meet the Latin culture.

And so here we are, in Chugwater. Cowboy hats meet the whinning songs of the lonely Gauchos camping in the Pampas. Send your dusty summer warmth to dry up tears and cold humid weather!

Will we see a rodeo?

Hey, Sin! We'll catch a rodeo in Cody or Cheyenne! (Wait...I think we may have passed Cody. DAMN! They have AWESOME rodeos!)

Did you get a chance to see any wild fires, while in Montana or Wyoming? They're all over, right now, and it's getting worse. It's the lightening.

And this is so sad (true), just last night, a woman here was struck by lightening and was killed. She and her friend were taking a walk on one of the trails. The wind began to blow hard, and the sky was changing colors, and it was obvious that we had one HELL of a storm coming in. They had realized this on their walk, and was running for shelter.

And I might add, here, that in Montana, these types of storms can really sneak up on ya'! It can be hot and sunny, and out of nowhere, but the clear blue sky, can come a WICKED thunder and lightening storm! Then it will pass, and the sun and clear skies will return.

I think these poor women were completely caught off guard. (It can sure happen!) My heart truly goes out to this woman's family and her friend.

Actually, Cheyenne is pronounced with a 'sh' sound. So, Sin, how about YOU choose where we stop for the night! I've been doing all the pick'n and I think it's someone else's turn to choose!

So what'll it be?? 😉

ok, ok, ok now I'm scared- don't leave me out here all alone with no shelter...I'm not strong enough: ( to face the storm alone.

Three thirty in the morning...Not a soul insight

The city's lookin' like a ghost town
On a moonless summer night

Raindrops on the windshield
There's a storm moving in

She's headin' back from somewhere
That she never should have been
And the thunder rolls

The thunder rolls

And the lightnin' strikes

Another love grows cold

On a sleepless night

As the storm blows on

Out of control

Deep in her heart

The thunder rolls

k, Jen

I'm back on board with ya all-sometimes I just don't know WHAT I'm thinking...can't it just be a soft rain out here in the West? You know kinda like...

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head....
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed....Nothin' seems to fit

Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'...

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun... And I said I didn't like the way he got things done....Sleepin' on the job

Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'....

But there's one thing I know...The blues they send to meet me... WON'T DEFEAT me and It won't be long till HAPPINESS steps up to greet me...

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
CRYIN'S not for ME
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

Because....... I'm freeeeeeee
Nothin's worryin' meeeeeeeeee....

Here am I! LovingLife just told me theres a search warrant for people caught sleeping during the day. Could risk being caught! I wanna be Freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, just like LL sings it! No, sir, no depression shall sink roots around these wagons, right?!

Wondering, a six shooter? Is it hunting season? Kat, keep it away from me until I got clear skies from my depression.

Well, Jen, Im torn. Should we go north or south? Ive been to Glacier Waterton park and dont mind going there again - its beauuuuuuuuutiful!

On the other hand, German descent me is eyeing those Idaho potatoes! Have you seen the one potato that fills a train wagon? Well, thats for tourists like me...

What do you guys feel up to?

I meant to say, Could NOT risk being caught! Not that I manage to get a wink beyond night these days so any daytime snoring must be from someone from another time fuse, you hear me? I was gonna say I dont snore but people are tired of hearing it and not believing it...
