ANGELS ONLINE

Friday, May 14, 2010




ANGELS ONLINE


There's a land where I go, when I need to share,
That's not on a map, yet exists everywhere;
Lots of names without faces, a curious place,
A virtual creation that's called — cyberspace.

There are all sorts of people with cute little handles,
Like Jasmine and Sandman and Rosebud and Jangles;
Some can be snobs, though most are great fun,
And some of them just want to talk with someone.

Both good and bad, they all play a role,
And each one's unique, but part of the whole;
We chat and we laugh and often we sigh,
We flirt and we 'hug' and sometimes we cry.

We can't be heard and we can't be seen,
Still we can 'talk' right there on that screen;
But, all in all, the most curious part
Is the power this has to open our hearts.

We share with a stranger stuff we've concealed
From our closest of friends — things we never reveal!
Our deepest regrets and most troubling fears,
The scars in our life which bring us to tears.

What gives them the power to reach into me
And show me the truths that I never see?
How do they manage to open my eyes
And make me confess the pain and the lies?

This must have been planned by Spirit above,
Few places on earth can bring so much love;
When I need some direction I know I can find
Those angels from heaven just waiting online.

You are a Star

Friday, May 07, 2010




You are a Star

a twinkle here
a twinkle there
sitting under the clear nightsky

i wondered
i wondered if i can float up
and gently touch them
and be next to them

one by one
slowly shining its way into the dark night skies
coming out of the darkness
and lighting up the heavenly skies
with its little twinkle

i couldnt help draw a parallel
how each one of us are stars ourselves
in this vast ocean of life

unknown and unseen
we hide behind the hazy clouds of life
constantly trying
to sparkle and shine

outshined by the powerful sun
and fading away
in the huge glare
we end up
as a mere dot on a canvas

across the huge expanse of the night sky
each star try to outshine the others
each star trying to twinkle its way to glory
a glory that lasts only for a second

find the star inside you
twinkle in the night sky
dont worry about lighting up the entire world
dont worry about twinkling your way to glory
maybe you are cannot be the powerful sun
but you are a star
a star to someone in this world!
a star with the power to
put a twinkle in
someone’s life
somewhere

Observations on Growing Older

Saturday, May 01, 2010

i got this in an email the other day and thought it was rather a fun read!!!

Observations on Growing Older

~Your kids are becoming you...and you don't like them
...but your grandchildren are perfect!

~Going out is good.
Coming home is better!

~When people say you look "Great"...
they add "for your age!"

~When you needed the discount you paid full price.
Now you get discounts on everything ...
movies, hotels, flights, but you're too tired to use them..

~You forget names ... but it's OK
because other people forgot
they even knew you!!!

~The 5 pounds you wanted to lose
is now 15 and you have a better chance
of losing your keys than the 15 pounds.

~You realize you're never going
to be really good at anything .... especially golf.

~Your spouse is counting on you
to remember things you don't remember.

~The things you used to care to do,
you no longer care to do,
but you really do care that you
don't care to do them anymore.

~Your spouse sleeps better on a lounge chair
with the TV blaring than he does in bed.
It's called his "pre-sleep".

~Remember when your mother said
"Wear clean underwear in case you GET in an accident"?
Now you bring clean underwear in case you HAVE an accident!

~You used to say,
"I hope my kids GET married ...
Now, "I hope they STAY married!"

~You miss the days when everything worked
with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch..

~When GOOGLE, ipod, email, modem ...
were unheard of, and a mouse was something
that made you climb on a table.

~You used to use more 4 letter words ...
"what?"..."when?" ???

~Now that you can afford
expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere.

~You read 100 pages into a book before you realize you've read it.

~Notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!!

~What used to be freckles are now liver spots.

~Everybody whispers.

~You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet ....
2 of which you will never wear.

~~~~But old is good in some things:
old songs
old movies
And best of all OLD FRIENDS!!

A BEAUTIFUL DAY

Friday, April 23, 2010

`

A BEAUTIFUL DAY


I woke up early today, excited over all the things
I get to do before the day ends...


My job is to choose what
kind of day I am going to have.


Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or ...
I can be thankful that the grass
is getting watered for free.


Today I can grumble about my health or...
I can rejoice that I am alive.


Today I can mourn my lack of friends or...
I can excitedly embark upon a
quest to discover new relationships.


Today I can whine because I have to go to work or...
I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.


Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or...
I can feel honored because life has provided
shelter for my mind, body and soul.


Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped ...
And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.


Today I am going to have a BEAUTIFUL DAY...
Because I am blessed with
so many gifts in my life.

FRIENDS ... MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Saturday, April 17, 2010






FRIENDS ... MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Some people come into our lives and quickly go;
Some people move our souls to dance; they awaken us to new understanding
With the passing whisper of their wisdom;
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.

Friends share simple, ordinary times in our lives,
Moments that become memories that stay in our hearts forever
... And we will never, ever be the same.


Friendship is a strange thing ...
It is by chance we met, by choice we became friends;
We find ourselves telling each other the deepest details of our lives,
things we don't even share with our families who raised us.

But what is a friend? A confidant? A lover? A fellow email junkie?
A shoulder to cry on? An ear to listen? A heart to feel?
A friend is ALL of these things and more;
No matter where we met, I call you "friend":
A word so small ... yet so large in feeling ... a word filled with emotion.

Once the package of friendship has been opened,
It can never be completely closed;
It is a constant book always waiting to be read ... and enjoyed.


We may have disagreements,
We may argue, we may concern one another ...
Friendship is a unique bond that lasts through it all.


A part of me is put into my friends: some is my humor, some is my listening ear,
Some is real life experience, some is my romanticism, but with all, it is FRIENDSHIP ...
Thanks for making a difference in my life!
