Today's Blog is dedicated to those of us for whom this rings so true........

Terri Nicole Tharrington

Forever we remain oblivious to the future,
lost to the past and enduring our torture.
Forever we take chances to settle our scores,
losing some battles and winning some wars.
Forever praying out loud hoping someone will hear,
forever crying softly but never shedding a tear.
Forever exists behind a disguise,
but the belief in forever keeps our hearts alive.

The Mask

Charlene Valladares

I look in the mirror at the beginning of each day, and ask myself what mask should I place on my face today.

No not the sad one it's too revealing, I don't want to show the world my true feelings.

For the mask that you can see camouflages the true me.
It's my public face that I remove each night, when I bare my soul the mirrors light.

It's the one meant for only my eyes to see it speaks of all my history.

It tells of my youth and girlish ways, my adolescents and my young woman’s dreams.

It tells of good times of which I had my share of love lost and pain so hard to bear.

So I choose my mask so carefully, to cover the face that was given to me, the one that was meant for only my eyes to see.

    I know that even on my worst days, there is something to be thankful for, and no matter how bad I feel, there are so many people suffering worse than I am.

I've also learned to make peace with what my body can no longer do, because of my pain issues and fatigue. That doesn't mean I'm giving up, it just means I've accepted my limitations and have found ways to work around them.

A friend shared this definition of 'forever'.
Forever is until it happens.
as in:
It took forever for the red traffic light to turn green.
It took forever for the pot of water to come to a full boil.

    You are very inspirational to me, Jean. I know you are struggling with chemo and so on and you took the time to put together this inspiring blog. emoticon I wanted to call you yesterday but I don't know how you are feeling. Let me know on my page or through email when it is okay to call. Also, if you have a cellphone, you can text me and say "can you talk?" and if I can, I will call you right back. emoticon
