THE HEART OF FRIENDSHIP ....

Sunday, February 19, 2012





THE HEART OF FRIENDSHIP

True friendship isn't seen with the eyes,
it is felt with the heart,
when there is trust, understanding,
loyalty, and sharing...
True friendship is a rare feeling,
but when it is found,
it has profound impact on
our well-being, strength, and character.

True friendship does not need
elaborate gifts or spectacular events
in order to be valuable or valued.

To ensure long-lasting
quality and satisfaction,
true friendship only needs
a few key ingredients:

Undying loyalty, unmatched understanding,
unsurpassed trust, deep and soulful secrets,
and endless sharing.

These ingredients,
mixed with personality and a sense of humor,
can make a friendship last a lifetime!

This is just a thank you, my friend,
for all the wonderful and colorful
special ingredients
you've brought to my life!

TOUCH MY HEART......

Sunday, February 12, 2012




TOUCH MY HEART

Touch my heart and I'll touch yours with a gentle word or two,
For kindness bears the sweetest fruit that makes our dreams come true.
Touch my life with tenderness and fill my cup with love;
Share my dreams as I share yours beyond the stars above.
Take my hand as I grow old and lead me when I'm blind;
Show me that you really care pure love is hard to find.
Touch my heart and I'll touch yours a little more each day;
Then we shall both find happiness somewhere along the way.
~Author Unknown


Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
Love does not demand its own way.
Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged.
It is never glad about injustice,
But rejoices whenever the truth wins out.
Love never gives up, never loses faith,
Is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
~Corinthians Bible Verse

    Thanks for grounding the emotion of LOVE into its actual meaning. So much commercialism distorts what it is all about.

ANGEL IN MY HEART....

Sunday, February 05, 2012



ANGEL IN MY HEART

When I have no one to turn to
And I am feeling kind of low;
When there is no one to talk to
And nowhere I want to go...
I search deep within myself
For it's the love inside my heart
That lets me know Angels are there
Even though we are miles apart.
A smile then appears upon my face
And the sun begins to shine;
I hear a voice, so soft and sweet
Saying, 'Everything will be just fine.'
It may seem that I am alone
But I'm never by myself at all;
Whenever I need my Angels near,
All I have to do is call.
An Angel's love is always true
On that you can depend;
They will always stand behind you
And will always be your friend.
Through darkest hours and brightest days
Our Angels see us through;
YOU are one of my Angels ...
Perhaps I am one for you.
Thanks for being
MY ANGEL FRIEND....

LIFE IS A MIRACLE....

Sunday, January 29, 2012







LIFE IS A MIRACLE

Life is a miracle don't let it slip away,
Open your heart to others, give of yourself each day.
See the beauty in everyone, regardless of where they've been,
Some have a difficult journey and really need a friend.
Share your gifts and talents, listen with your heart.
Do the things you dream about but don't have time to start.
Pick a bouquet of flowers, show someone that you care,
Be gracious and forgiving, for life is never fair.
Hold on to your courage, you may need it down the road,
We all have a cross to bear, it could be a heavy load.
If you practice all these things, wherever you may roam,
You might find both sun and rain, but you'll never feel alone!

update:
for my thyroid issues i have been having the dr has recommended i follow "Wilson's T3 protocol " i have done at least 6 /8 rounds since late last spring trying to stimulate to thyroid to respond and help me with my efforts at losing weight etc
with this protocol you are checking your temperature and pulse looking for temp above 98 i have hardly ever reached that expectation....
my weight has gone up a few pounds as i had the band released as i was having band issues (chest pain) all turned out ok about the chest pain and so the saline was slowly added again........i have been gaining and losing the same few pounds since ......
i will be seeing my dr mid February and hopefully she will have more ideas to offer.......
thanks so much for all your support throughout my journey as many many days i wonder why bother but i know i must keep plodding along no matter what......i know i have become healthier and much fitter due to my efforts and that is my best outcome so far...i just want more.......hopefully i one way or the other overcome my medical issues....
much appreciation to for your continued support....
blessings and hugs.............lita

Everything I need to know,I learned from Noah's Ark...

Monday, January 23, 2012



EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW, I LEARNED FROM NOAH'S ARK.....


ONE: Don't miss the boat.
TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat.
THREE: Plan ahead.
It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
FOUR: Stay fit. When you're 60 years old,
someone may ask you to do something really big.
FIVE: Don't listen to critics;
just get on with the job that needs to be done.
SIX: Build your future on high ground.
SEVEN: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
EIGHT: Speed isn't always an advantage.
The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
NINE: When you're stressed, float awhile.
TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs;
the Titanic by professionals.
ELEVEN: No matter the storm,
have faith ... there's always a rainbow waiting.

    It's so true that the titanic was built by professionals, and the Ark by an amature. However, the contractor in charge of the Ark getting built was NOT an amature... He had already built the world. :D He also built the iceberg ;D

Reminds me of the Bill Cosby skit where he says something like Man built a car and said amazing!, built a refrigerator and said fantastic! built a sky scrapper and said unbelievable!! The car broke down, the refrigerator stopped running and the sky scrapper rusted.

God invented a tree and said it was good. God invented a rabbit and said it was good. God invented a river and said it was good. Tree's still standing, rabbit's still running and the river's still flowing. GOOD.

    On the downside:

ONE: God creates disasters...
TWO: 99%+ of the population gets wiped out - the odds of you will being a chosen one are low....
THREE: No matter how far you plan ahead you can't cope with freak occurrences... and if you tried to have a contingency for every disaster you couldn't afford it....
FOUR: But just in case, stay fit - you may need to repopulate the planet....
FIVE: If you are building an ark now.... you may need to see a psychiatrist....
SIX: High ground is fine... but watch out for lightning - always strikes tallest first...
SEVEN: Travel in pairs, but keep a back-up - nothing worse then a gay unicorn....
EIGHT: Keep the cheetahs & snails apart. Man those cheetahs will eat anything!
NINE: The earth may have been flooded & everyone killed, but don't let it worry you - just try & keep on god's good side....
TEN: Don't worry that you never studied boat design.... how hard can it be?
ELEVEN: Alright, that's enough, now let me out of here!!!!!
