Great, and thanks again for your thoughtful thread. I was feeling kind of bad about hijacking it with video's and such. Slightly off topic, so again
my apologies. I think your thread made some of us feel very nostalgic!
You are very welcome! and no worries! Nostalgia sometimes gets me through my day at times! If anything in my book, if my story or experience can
help someone out, then I have already won
In the sense that points and stars and flags are one thing. But to directly put a smile on someones
face, and brighten their day, is something you can not put value upon.
My tragic event totally changed my life. And I could have very well just crawled under a rock and gave up and died. But I chose to strive on, and
keep plugging away. And knowing in my heart that someday, I would be able to share my tragic experience and turn it into something positive and maybe
help others by knowing they are not alone out there.
Plus, to always put things in perspective. How to really cherish what you have while you have it.
Its so damn easy to forget these little things.
I know all to well... So much I would take back and do over if I knew what I know now..
But they say Hindsight is 20/20 ..
So I am now able to cherish everything and everyone in my life, but more so than I did when I was younger.
I just always thought she would be here with me..
Like most human beings on Earth.. Our relationships are never permanent even if we feel they will last forever.
None do. As all relationships have their bitter end.. Some are bittersweet, some are just bitter.
But they do end, every last one of them. Either divorce, death, or insert reason here..
No escape from the heart break.. But there are always people to tend to the wounds, and talk and support us.
That is what I am here for.. and why I posted that poem.
It just so happens to be in a contest as I felt I could honor Naomi one last time here.. IN her essence I vow to her I would make a difference, and
never give up.. And never stop loving her.
