A Place for Me
There is a special place in life, that needs my humble skill,
A certain job I'm meant to do, which no one else can fulfill.
The time will be demanding, the pay is not too good,
And I wouldn't change it for a moment, even if I could.
There is a special place in life, a goal I must attain,
A dream that I must follow because I won't be back again.
There is a mark that I must leave, however small it seems to be.
A legacy of love for those who follow after me.
There is a special place in life, that only I may share.
A little path that bears my name, awaiting me somewhere.
There is a hand that I must hold, a word that I must say,
A smile that I must give, for there are tears to blow away.
There is a special place in life that I was meant to fill.
A sunny spot where flowers grow, upon a windy hill.
There's always a tomorrow and the
best is yet to be, for somewhere
in this world, I know there
is a place for me.

ONE DAY AT A TIME
Our lives are made up of a million moments,
spent in a million different ways.
Some are spent searching for
love, peace, and harmony.
Others are spent surviving day by day.
But there is no greater moment
than when we find that life,
with all it's joys and sorrows,
is meant to be lived one day at a time.
It's in this knowledge that we discover
the most wonderful truth of all.
Whether we live in a forty-room mansion,
surrounded by servants and wealth,
or find it a struggle to manage
the rent month to month,
we have it within our power to be fully
satisfied and live a life with true meaning.
One day at a time - we have that ability,
through cherishing each moment
and rejoicing in each dream.
We can experience each day anew,
and with this fresh start we have
what it takes to make all our dreams come true.
Each day is new, and living one day at a time
enables us to truly enjoy life and live it to the fullest.

LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE
Little stones make big mountains,
Little steps can cover miles,
Little acts of loving-kindness
Give the world it's biggest smiles...
Little words can soothe big troubles
Little hugs can dry big tears,
Little candles light the darkness,
Little memories last for years...
Little dreams can lead to greatness,
Little victories to success~
It's the little things in life
That brings the greatest happiness...
~ Author Unknown
It really is the little things that mean the most of all...
The "let me help you with that" things that may seem very small,
The "I'll be glad to do it" things that make your cares much lighter,
The "laugh with me, it's funny" things that make your outlook brighter...
The "never mind the trouble" things, the "yes, I understand,"
The interest and encouragement in everything you've planned...
It really is the little things, the friendly word or smile,
That add such happiness to life and make it more worthwhile.

Portrait of a Friend"
I can't give solutions to all of life's problems, doubts,
or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
search for answers.
I can't change your past with all it's heartache and pain,
nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you,
and help you when you ask.
I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship,
from your values, from me.
I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.
I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
room to be yourself.
I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.
I can't tell you who you are.
I can only love you and be your friend.
i continue to plod along everyday with minimal success...........
am searching for ways to solve this riddle so to speak and i feel i may have found the right dr to help me......
we are slowly working on the hormones and thyroid side of things and am hopeful i will be seeing some results soon.........i feel at times extremly frustrated at the lack of movement on the scale or much change in inches lost etc.......this new dr did a test on me called 'BIOIMPEDANCE ANALYSIS"
one of the results showed my lean body mass which indicated that half of my body was muscle....i finally felt that all this exercise has finally showed some results that is measureable as too many dr's out there did not believe me when i told and showed them the printouts from sparkpeople what i ate and all the exercise i do etc........i feel maybe now i have a chance of moving forward.......
thanks to everyone for all your help and support............
