You and Me, We Will Always Be

You and Me, We Will Always Be

You and me, we will always be…even those times when we’re apart…because we’re connected heart to heart.

“The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for man to be alone…'” Genesis 2:18

This Bible verse solidifies exactly how I feel about sharing my life with others…and that is good! When I spend time with someone I love and care about, it is as if that period of time transcends everything else in the world.  Being in a close relationship, be it platonic or romantic, has a way of connecting one person to another.  Whether they are physically together or apart; it is a bond that is inseparable no matter what.

You and Me, We Will Always Be

You and me, we will always be,

even those times when we’re apart.

The miles between us do not matter at all,

because we’re connected heart to heart.

You and me, we will always be,

you are my buddy, my pal, my friend.

I am here when you need me, and when you don’t;

I’ll be with you from the beginning to the end.

You and me, we will always be,

I can’t imagine ever being without you.

We’ve seen each other through thick and thin;

indeed, I am your comrade through and through.

A Friend Indeed

A friend indeedA friend indeed, whether it’s at night or during the day…close by my side is where he wants to stay.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.  You are his life, his love, his leader.  He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.  You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”  (Author Unknown)

A Friend Indeed

(A poem dedicated to my little companion, my little friend Bilbo)

A friend indeedA friend indeed,

yes, that’s my four-pawed friend.

Whenever I’m happy, whenever I’m sad,

he’s the one on which I can always depend.

A friend indeedA friend indeed,

whether it’s night or during the day,

no matter what it is that I’m doing;

close by my side he wants to stay.

A friend indeedA friend indeed,

he can’t tell time nor what day it is of the week.

But he knows how to say “I love you,”

in ways that don’t require him to speak.

A friend indeedA friend indeed,

his sweet, brown eyes, they tell me so much.

Like how much I am needed, (and I need him too).

I hope he know how deeply my heart he has touched.

Making a Difference

Making a Difference

Making a difference in the lives of others, can make a difference in our lives too.

“The purpose of life is not to be happy.  It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am a “doer.” If you were to walk along side of me in a day in my life, you’d quickly realize that I rarely  sit still.  If  my body is not in motion, my mind is running at full throttle.  If I am not focused intensely on something that I am working out in my mind, you can bet I am multi-tasking; juggling as many activities at once as I can.  I am constantly thinking ahead.  When my head hits the pillow at the end of the night, or many times in the wee hours of the morning, my sleep is filled with dreams.  What is it that keeps me “on” so much of the time?  Does all of this busyness make a difference?

A Quote to Carry You – February 17, 2014

A quote to carry youA Quote to Carry You

February 17, 2014

“The best way to destroy an enemy is to make him a friend.” Abraham Lincoln

Can an enemy become a friend?  When I first read this quote, I didn’t think much of it.  Reading it a second time, however, I realized how easily this advice can be applied to any adversity in life.    When we embrace the difficulties that come our way, and transform them from being hindrances into welcomed opportunities…well, they may become some of the strongest “friends” we have.

Face your challenges with a welcoming calmness…you may be surprised at how amiable the end results turn out to be.

Peace,

A Quote to Carry You – September 30, 2013

a quote to carry youA Quote to Carry You

September 30, 2013

“The one unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog…  He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wound and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world…When all other friends desert, he remains.”  George G. Vest, speech in the US Senate, 1884

Although they cannot express it with words, every endearing look, every enthusiastic greeting, every lick  and every snuggle that they give, all say ” l am here, I am your friend.” By now you might have guessed that I am a dog lover.  To me, dogs are furry, four-legged bundles of love.  Faithful friends they are indeed.  No wonder they are called man’s best friend.

To all of those who feel the same…may your special friend make your day a little brighter.

Peace and love,

Felecia

A Quote to Carry You – August 19, 2013

“A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere.  Before him, I may think aloud.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Can you imagine a world without friends?  Those special  people who are there for you when you need them the most; who are there to share your special moments; who can make you laugh when you might otherwise have cried.  To all of you whom I cherish as friends, thank you for being mine!

Peace,

Felecia
