I have been so grateful these last 20 days for friends, family, coworkers, doctors, and others that have been there for me with so much love and kind words - kisses on my heart! Nothing could compare to that. Thank you to each of you. Today I am grateful for you. Long live love!
As this 21 day journey is nearing its end, I again want to remember and celebrate with gratitude that which I had - love, true intimacy, closeness, attraction and passion - the complete package. Today I am grateful for having experienced connection. Long live love!
Today I am grateful for the control beyond that which I have. The kind where you breathe and let go of all that is because there is nothing else you can do. Today I am grateful that I can breathe and do that. Today I am also grateful for people with listening ears and words of encouragement. Thank you all. I love you. Long live love, friendship and family!
I was told that my writing says a lot about what I am feeling at the present moment. This is somewhat true, yet I have to confess not completely accurate, as I do not post everything that I feel. I do not reveal my innermost feelings here on this public forum regardless of what you think you are "reading" into what I am writing. Some of what I have posted is from years ago. Poems I wrote back in 2009 about a whirlwind love with someone that shall remain nameless (but you know who you are). As a result of this discussion, I am posting today's poem. Long live love! If I Were
Today I wanted to remember the divine spark of who I truly am at my core. I am not this tragic physical body or this emotional shipwreck of grief. I am a child of the Universe - a spark of divine love. Long live love!
Today I have relapsed and shed a number of tears. But there is still time left in the day and I shall not go down defeated. I remember a time when there once were happy tears that I cried. May your life be filled with the love of family, friends, and/or romance. Long live love!
I was once asked: What is something that you learned about success and living that you didn't know at the age of 20? Today I am reminded of my response: Education, experience and memories are 3 things that no one can take away from you. Remember that. Long live love!
Today was a challenge but if there is one thing I have learned, it is that there will be some days that are better than others. It is my hope though that there are better days ahead and those are the days that I look forward to. Long live love!
Today I was reminded in a song that love teaches us lessons. Boy has love taught me lessons, lots and lots of lessons, very important lessons. How to love, when to love, why to love and ways to love. One important lesson that I was recently reminded of was the need to love myself. Long live love!
Today I got some love and
hugs from 2 fabulous artists. Each day I am amazed at the things I can attract
into my life. When you look for the wonderful bliss of pure love, it appears -
not just that of the romantic nature (that's not what I'm talking about here.)
The kind where someone looks in your eyes and loves your soul, loves your
smile, loves you through the sadness, hugs your heart, just loves you - for
you! May your life be filled with the love of family, friends, and/or romance.
Long live love!
Today I am celebrating
the love, life and friendship of a dear and departed friend. Today I will be
joined by many others in celebration of the tremendous life she lived and the
love she brought to so many people. I want any and all who read this and have
lost a loved one to know that I am here and remember you are loved to the
core...Long live love!
Today I am celebrating
the freedom of pulling off one's suit of armor and fully loving another with
everything in you. Yes, there are risks and yes, it opens you up to
vulnerability, but there is nothing like it. Today I want to remember that
wonderful release of armor and that experience of love. May you attract love
into your life. May your life be filled with love and not the weight of armor.
Long live love!
Today I celebrate the love of some very special people in my life. I want to offer them all the love I have on this day, as I am so grateful that they have been a part of my journey. They have loved me through so many of my life's ups and downs. A friend of mine lost her partner and the love of her life for 13 years. I am sending you a big fat virtual hug with lots of love. Then there's my 5 year old great niece who is on week 6 and still has 70 weeks more of chemotherapy with her family at St Jude's. I want them all to know that they are loved and that when I think of them I smile and my heart dances with love. I am so grateful for these wonderful souls in my life and pray for strength, comfort and healing for them and anyone else reading this. We all have our struggles. Although you may not know the person next to you, send them love. Spread that stuff around. We all need it. Long live love!
My Heart Dances
By: Annette Thomas Because of you I wear a smile on my face I have joy in my soul And my heart dances!
Today I'm celebrating all kinds of love - the hugs from a family member, an "I love you" from your best friend, a smile from your roommate in the morning, the laughter of your co-workers, doctors with just the right bedside manners, and nice customers at the end of the phone such as the one I spoke to today from www.annetteonline.com (who would've known) all that oozing love lol....May your life be filled with the love of family, friends, roommates, co-workers, doctors, customers and/or romance. Long live love!
The silence Extinguishing
communicating The enjoyment
of the moment The stillness
of time The melting of
heart The release of
love The embrace - ah!
I made the
decision when I woke up this morning that I was going to spend the next 21 days
celebrating and remembering all the love I've seen in my life and not focus on
the love I've lost. And boy has the day been amazing! I have seen so much fun,
love, life and laughter today since I made the decision to start looking for
it. Today I celebrate a time filled with love. Each day I will post a poem and
remember a time filled with the wonderful bliss of love! May your life be
filled with the love of family, friends, and/or romance. Long live love!
I continue to hear move on there'll be another, but they do not realize that I loved her with every fiber of my being. And that now I cry myself to sleep at night because I hurt as much as I loved.
Yes I will survive but right now I hurt, just as I loved, with every breath I take. As the stars fill the sky, so do these tears fill my eyes. The pain is great because I hurt as much as I loved.
I shared with her more than a bed. I shared with her my soul, my inner thoughts and feelings, things I've never shared with another. Intimacy at its core. So Yes it hurts. I hurt, as much as I loved. It hurts.
