Love Is Everything - KD Lang (Max Sessions)

Love can make us climb mountains..It can give us the courage to conquer things we just can't seem to conquer on our own.

When someone is truly in love with you, they think of you first. Both partners should always put the other one first. Think of their feelings. Help them achieve their goals. Work towards the same purpose

I was this little kid, who had no one, to truly be there, for me everyday. And someone could have beat me and yelled at me, but I would not cry. I was beaten if I did cry..

But when my fourth grade teacher showed me love. A dam burst, and the tears wouldn't stop. She asked me why I cried. I told her because I truly felt loved, and not just in everybodies way.

And I felt love for the first time with no expectations.

She then cried. So to me, yes, love is everything.

Tears For Fears - Woman In Chains ft. Oleta Adams

Since yesterday afternoon it has been terrible. But I am trying very hard to put faith in my heart, I must say God is good all the time. Whether we realize it or not. He is..

I cry as I write this because my soul is in torment at this moment. I just want the struggle not to be so hard. I need a break from all this madness.

Great men
are they who see
that spiritual is stronger
than any material force,
that thoughts rule the world.

My prayer for today is this:

Let me be an instrument of peace. Let me see the sorrow of others so I may comfort them in their hour of need. Let faith rise up in my like a very strong tower. And may everyone else who is struggling with sorrow today be helped by the Lord..

Love Nita

Julie London - Bye Bye Blackbird

I imagine me dancing slowly with you in a smoky little bar in a foreign land to this tune.. You slip your arms about me tenderly. And I am hoping every emotion isn't showing on my face. For so often it does.

You are dressed in a black pin stripped suit. With wonderfully made shoes from Italy, that fit your feet so well. I have on a red dress. My hair is put up in an updo..With a silver comb in a French twist.

You run your thumbs down my cheeks and lift my face to meet yours..And you kiss me slowly.

There are no worries about money or how we are going to get this or that. We just are pleasantly in love and peaceful.

And you say, "Love isn't about leaving it is about weathering each and every storm with each other. It is me and you holding hands while we walk down the sidewalk. It is picking up little presents for each other. Like I know you love cherry chocolates that is why I bring you one everyday. It is you always having tea made for me because I love it. It isn't always rainbows and butterflies..But it is the feeling that it could be."

And I look up at you and smile. The smile I reserve for those I truly love..

xoxo Nita

"I'm Movin' On" - Rascal Flatts Official Music Video

"I have dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons..Finally content with a past I regret. I have found you find strength in your moments of weakness. For once I am at peace with myself. I have been burdened by blame. Trapped in the past for too long. I'm moving on.."

The lyrics to this song are powerful..

I myself, have lived in the past for too long. That has been me. Feeling regret for every mistake I made with my kids. Regret for when I should have been patient and was not. Regret for not being able to understand John many times.

Our past can trap us, just like a physical obstacle can stop us physically.

I have loved like I should. But lived like I shouldn't. That has been me..

But I am moving on...

I am getting rid of stuff I should have gotten rid of along time ago. Stuff I have held onto that had memories ...

But than I became a hoarder. Do you know why people become hoarders? Because it is so hard to let go of people. I kept all my kid's school papers that had A's and some that didn't so they could see that making aB or C was OK. As long as they were trying.

I cleaned them out this week. I saved only a few from each grade and gave them to each child. Then burnt the rest. I still had John's clothes..I am taking them to the Salvation Army. Someone could use those. I am taking extra dishes to the Salvation Army too. Someone could use those too. The extra blankets are going to people who could use them. I have one person picked out to give some too. She has three little kids.

But possessions are just material things. The memories are within us. They won't leave. Even when people get old memories come back to them..The best ones. Have you ever noticed that?

I am going to organize the rest of my stuff...When I was a teenager I was very organized. I think people become hoarders also, because they just don't know what to do with the stuff. Elizabeth has moved back home and is helping me. She had some terrible experiences where she moved and came back.

She cried because she felt like she failed. I told her no you did not fail. You will be able to do the things you want to do. Just build yourself up and then do them.

I have always been told that failure is success turned inside out. I have failed so many times. But I don't give up. I pick myself up and I start over again.

It has been hard to admit I am a hoarder. Because you always see the people on TV where they find dead cats under their stuff that is not me. But I have found weird things. LoL

I encourage you today if you have something hard to face, don't beat yourself up. Please don't. Just face it with a brave heart. Because you can do it. I believe that with my whole heart.

Aerosmith - Dream On Official Music Video

I remember we were driving down Brookside Avenue..It was Summer and the air was heavy and filled with the smell of honeysuckle..and death.

Mom looked over and said there was animal laying on the vines..A doe. And I got a lump in my throat ..

She said there was no worse smell than the sticky sweetness of honeysuckle and death.

Dream on by Aerosmith was on the radio. I looked at Mom and the sun was shinning brightly on her red hair..Actually it was more of a deep auburn and it looked like a shiny penny.

I had been reading a book of poetry by Sylvia Plath but I sat it on my knee..

I began to think many things. I thought about the lyrics of the song playing

"Every time that I look in the mirror all these lines on my getting clearer." And I suddenly felt quite sad.

Why was there death? Why was there so much sadness in our lives that we just couldn't seem to escape from?

And I thought about good things like Community Beach..It was a little haven for my brother, sisters and I.

An old black man ran it. His weathered face would light up as soon as he saw the kids walking to the beach. His wrinkled hands and kind eyes were what I remembered most.

The little beach was full of happy kids, or maybe they were sad like us, who was just happy there.
