Friends Without Faces
by Thomas Teague
We sit and we type, and we stare at our screens,
We all have to wonder, what this possibly means.
With our mouse we roam, through the rooms in a maze,
Looking for something or someone, as we sit in a daze.
We chat with each other, we type all our woes,
Small groups we do form, and gang up on our foes.
We wait for somebody, to type out our name,
We want recognition, but it is always the same.
We give kisses and hugs, and sometimes flirt,
In IMs we chat deeply, and reveal why we hurt.
We do form friendships - but - why we don't know,
But some of these friendships, will flourish and grow.
Why is it on screen, we can be so bold,
Telling our secrets, that have never been told.
Why is it we share, the thoughts in our mind,
With those we can't see, as though we were blind.
The answer is simple, it is as clear as a bell.
We all have our problems, and need someone to tell.
We can't tell "real" people, but tell someone we must,
So we turn to the 'puter, and to those we can trust.
Even though it is crazy, the truth still remains,
They are Friends Without Faces, and odd little names.
got my scan results friday an still don't know re the torn meniscus.............i did find out that i have some rarish type of knee problem so i'm told.....it called meniscal chondrocalcinosis which menas my knees are full of debris called calcium deposits floating around?????i will be have an mri sometime this spring???? so everything is in limbo re the knee at the moment........this condition is what causes so much pain so that makes me feel somewhat better as after a while you almost feel the dr think you are making things up etc............ so i just will deal with things as they come up........so have started back to the pool this week and will continue so long as the knees allow and when an acute phase comes again the dr's will decide at that time what to do.......so the good news is i'm hanging in there and will continue to plod along the best i can every day..........
thanks dear friends so much for being there for me................there have been many many times i felt like i should just give up but it is so many of you here on sparkpeople that have kep me coming back every day........together we can do this...........i beleive we can ............and we will acheive our goals and dreams...........
HAPPY VAELNTINE'S DAY TO ONE AND ALL.....
BLESSINGS AND HUGS..............LITA

As You Travel Through Life
As you travel through life there are always those times
When decisions just have to be made,
When the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce,
And the rain seems to soak your parade.
There are some situations where all you can do
Is simply let go and move on,
Gather your courage and choose a direction
That carries you toward a new dawn.
So pack up your troubles and take a step forward
The process of change can be tough,
But think about all the excitement ahead
There might be adventures you never imagined
Just waiting around the next bend,
And wishes and dreams just about to come true
In ways you can't yet comprehend!
Perhaps you'll find friendships that spring from new things
As you challenge your status quo,
And learn there are so many options in life,
Perhaps you'll go places you never expected
And see things that you've never seen,
Or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds
And wonderful spots in between!
Perhaps you'll find warmth and affection and caring
And somebody special who's there
To help you stay cantered and listen with interest
To stories and feelings you share.
Perhaps you'll find comfort in knowing your friends
Are supportive of all that you do,
And believe that whatever decisions you make,
They'll be the right choices for you.
So keep putting one foot in front of the other,
And taking your life day by day...
There's a brighter tomorrow that's just down the road -
Don't look back! You're not going that way!
i have had several challenges that were unexpected that has made my journey more difficult for me but i must plod along as best as i can set backs or not.....am still awaiting the results of the knees scans and will see my family dr next friday........i have been unbale to exercise due to the increase in pain even though the swelling has come down..........i tried this week without success and will give the pool another try on Tuesday and see how it goes........
i know i would certainly be in a very different place than i am now ...........
it is all thanks to everyone on the teams and of course all the inspiration from so many here on sparkpeople,that is what keeps me going and coming back everyday..............saw this on another post somewhere and liked it as it seemed appropros ...........
" I will get there; I’m just taking the scenic route :) "
wishing you all well as we journey here together..........
blessings and hugs..............lita

THE INVINCIBLE YOU
There's nothing to fear —- you're as good as the best,
As strong as the mightiest, too;
You CAN win in every battle or test
For there's no one just like you.
There's only one you in the world today
'Cause nobody else, you see,
Can do your work in as fine a way:
You're the ONLY one there'll be!
So face the world, and all life is yours
To conquer and love and live,
And you'll find the happiness that endures
In just the measure you give.
There's nothing too good for you to possess,
Nor heights where you cannot go:
Your power is more than belief or guess —-
It is something you have to KNOW.
There is nothing to fear —-
you can and you will,
For you ARE the invincible you,
Set your foot upon the highest hill —-
There's NOTHING you cannot do.

While viewing the beauty of fresh falling snow,
My mind wandered back to words spoken softly to the ear of a child:
"Snowflakes are like newborn souls falling from the clouds to the earth."
Like the snowflake we are all perfect creations,
Each of us uniquely formed.
Many of us are taught religion in a fog of truth during childhood.
We call ourselves Christians, Jews, Moslems, Buddhists,
Hindus, Atheists, Agnostics or Pagans.
None of us speak or relate to God in the same manner.
Eventually, as the snowflakes melt,
They return to the water from which they were formed.
Water runs deep and will seek its own level
Until it is found.
Sometimes these waters are the waters of consciousness.
Heat melts the snow;
Like snow we soften with warmth.
We each live in a sea of thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
When we experience the warmth of love
Our thoughts, feelings and different beliefs melt away.
Connecting us with one another,
Making us realize we are one.
