Torry, You Are My Dream Come True
Always in my heart
you make me feel more loved than I've ever felt,
and happier than
I've ever dreamed.
The love and understanding
is something I have searched
for my entire life.
Always, in my happiest and saddest moments,
you are my best friend and confidante.
I come to you for everything,
and you listen to me-
Deep within my soul,
I know we have a love
like no other.
What we share is something others only hope for and
But few ever experience.
Our love is magical beyond belief.
Always, without hesitation,
you give of yourself completely.
You have reach...
To my beautiful daughters-
Lessons I hope to pass to them:
• Travel light through life. Keep only what you need.
• It’s okay to cry when you’re hurt. It’s also okay to smash (some) things; but, wash your face, clean your mess & get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there.
• If you’re going to cuss, be clever. If you’re going to cuss in public, think again.
• Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
• 5-second rule. It’s just dirt. There are worse things in a fast food cheeseburger.
• You’re a woman, you don’t NEED a man- but it’s ok to want the right one.
• Happiness is not a permanent state, it takes intentional effort everyday.
• Pain is inevitable, but sufferi...
You are strong enough to handle your Challenges.
You are wise enough to find solutions to your problems.
You are capable enough to do Whatever needs to be done!
Always Remember who you are!
THE BRAVEST PERSON
It's easy to fight in the battle of life
When friends are singing or glory.
But when we are all alone,
And there's no one around
Well, that's a different story.
It's easy to fight in broad daylight
When we hold the victor's cup
But when night comes and it's
Ten against one
You must never think of giving up.
It's easy to fight when foes are in flight
And we hear the victory song.
But when you're all alone and
There's no song to be heard
You'll often think that you are wrong.
It's easy to fight in the battle of life-
You just fight harder when things worsen.
When one can't remember
How to surrender,
Well then that's the bravest person.
New hopes, new endings.
Stop wishing about “if only” things could have been different.
It’s just a chapter in the past.
But don’t close the book. Just turn the page; for every day is a chance to make new beginnings, new hopes and new endings.
Realize the value
To realize the value of a sister, ask someone who doesn’t have one.
To realize the value of ten years, ask a newly divorced couple.
To realize the value of four years, ask a graduate.
To realize the value of one year, ask a student who has failed a final exam.
To realize the value of nine months, ask a mother who gave birth to a child.
To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of one week, ask an editor of a weekly newspaper. To realize the value of one hour, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet. To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who has missed a train, a bus or a plane.
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you’ll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you’ve never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. you just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile unti...
Why am i here?
Why is it me?
What can I do?
How can this be?
I've made my decision,
I'm down on my knees.
Is anyone out there?
Someone! help me, please!
Standing here waiting,
Just one last time.
The road to happiness,
To steep to climb!
I'm in too deep.
Nowhere to turn...
Looking for life,
I feel my soul burn.
Please! help me find
What I'm looking for?
Because this pain in my heart
Should be no more!
Why am i here?
Why is it me?
What can I do?
How can this be?
here we are... at a place no one should ever have to experience. we are struggling to hold back tears for so many reasons... for the past hurts, for present pain, for future sacrifices and doubts and struggles and questions left unanswered and so so many things left unsaid.
we have love. that's for sure but we both wonder if the others is real. if I really love you enough. am I as strong as I think I am? am I capable of loving someone so much to wait for so long? how could you trust me? how could you not? how can you say you love me if you do not believe in me at all? do you not understand that if you won't believe in me at all I will have no reason to believe in myself? I ...
I dress up when I am feeling down. I laugh when I want to cry. I am an optimistic pessimist, an idealistic realist, and a hopless dreamer. Sometimes I over think and sometimes I don't think at all. I'm controlled chaos, haphazardly organized. I am carlessly thoughtful and aprehensivly adventurous. I am consistently spontaneous. I am extraordinarily ordinary and intricately plain.
There are lots of things I am and lots I am not.
I can make you wish you'd never met me or and I'd almost bet I could make you wish you didn't have to live without me. I am confident in my own skin and if I'm not you can bet I will change not only my clothes, but also my playlist 337+ times until I am. ...
I am SO FRUSTRATED!!! I cannot understand why God doesn't feel as tho I need a break! I try to live by a few simple guidelines in life, and don't get me wrong, I am FAR from perfect! but I know right from wrong. .. there really is no in between... the in between, I think, is indecisiveness on deciding which way to go. .. the right way or the wrong.
I believe in and try to live by, some say the "golden rule". However, rephrased. .. TREAT PEOPLE AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED! Is that simple!!!! Don't do things that you yourself wouldn't like done to you! And if you do, don't act surprised wen someone does the same to you!
And I believe that God never gives you more than you can han...
