Sometimes we are so lost in this world..I know I am many times. All of my life I have felt alone.It started as a child. Not feeling like I belong in a world so full of cold and uncaring people.

I remember as a little girl girl reaching out to others around me who were as lost as me.

Those who seemed like they didn't belong either..

I think any kind word or deed we can give to another person may save them.
We don't know the power of our words or actions. There is power in them.

On the days I have felt like giving up I search for someone to encourage so that I can make it..Because I feel that if I encourage another soul that I have made my cares not so important.

If you feel like giving up today please don't?

I feel like giving up today but I am not going to..I am going to fight through the trials that seem to weigh my soul down.

{if you have time please listen to is beautiful..}

Nita, somedays it is hard to hang in there. But there are days that definitely make it worthwhile and those you hang on to until they come again. I realize it's very hard to reach out, but you know you have many people who are hear for you, including me. Wishing you comfort and joy.

I know that feeling of wanting to give up because it is too overwhelming to think of going on, but I am still here and those times have come and gone. Fighting through these times really strengthens our souls Nita. I see it in you sweetie. I have missed you too and love you.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

I can understand. Feel the same way too at times. But when we look at the good of it, this world is still very much beautiful.

Wishing you a Christmas filled with peace & joy and a Happy New Year.
