The Road Less Traveled

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

~ Robert Frost

Friendship ~ Love

Friendship is a quiet walk in the park with the one you trust

Love is when you feel like you are the only two around.

Friendship is when they gaze into your eyes and you know they care.

Love is when they gaze into your eyes and it warms your heart.

Friendship is being close even when you are far apart.

Love is when you can still feel their hand on your heart when they are not near.

Friendship is hoping that they experience the very best.

Love is when you bring them the very best.

Friendship occupies your mind.

Love occupies your soul.

Friendship is knowing that you will always try to be there when in need.

Love is when you will give up everything to be at their side.

Friendship is a warm smile in the winter.

Love is a warming touch that sends a pulse through your heart.

Love is a beautiful smile to which nothing compares:

A tender laugh, which opens your heart,

A single touch that melts away your fears,

A smell that reminds you of the tenderness of heaven,

A voice that reminds you of the innocence of youth.

Friendship can survive without love.

Love cannot live without friendship.

In Memory Of ~

 clouds 150x109 In Memory Of ~            It is a cloudy, rainy day in Southern California and though it never rains in California, today it is coming down as though it may never stop.

As the rain gently falls I find myself listening to the raindrops and remembering the sound of the rain tapping out melodies on an old tin roof. It takes me back in time to a place when I was young and my whole life was before me. I can remember thinking that a lifetime was an eternity and that I had forever to fullfill my dreams.

It is different now… now I know that our time here is limited and fleeting, now I know that it is a transient gift and can be gone in the blink of an eye.

With age does come the wisdom we think we possess as youths but soon learn that like the passing of time, it is a paradox that we glimpse in moments and feel in eternities.

  On this Memorial Day weekend I am experiencing a bit of nostalgic melancholy as I reflect on the people who have touched my soul and heart. I am remembering the simple things that made these people special and personified who they were to me. I am looking back with longing but also thankfulness for having the opportunity to be a part of their world.

These are the people who enter our lives in the most unexpected ways and become permanent dwellers in our heart and soul. Their auras draw us into their lives and make us feel as though when we are with them our lives sparkle and gleam and are magical. These are the ones who bring us out of ourselves and help us to grow and experience life as a gift. They help us to feel a bit of the pizazz that they possess and they help us to engulf ourselves and others in their romantic version of the world. They look out at the world and see it as full of wonder and potential. They see life as a wonderous adventure. They are grateful and know that they are blessed.

By having these wonderful, precious people enter my world and my life, I am stronger and more appreciative of my own time and blessings. I am ever grateful for their sparkle. Their sparkle that I will always remember with a smile and a tear.
