Spring Of Hope

"If We Had No Winter, The Spring Would Not Be So Pleasant: If We Did Sometimes Not Taste Of Adversity, Prosperity Would Not Be So Welcome."
Anne Bradstreet

For C.J. -
May you always shine your beautiful light on all those around you...I am proud to call you my friend and while I am not fully facing the light yet, I am embracing it all each and every day - Thank you.

" Mi Ispira, Senza Un Suono"


Don't adjust your monitors - Yes you are actually seeing colors and flowers and trees.

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring...

Lent is almost over...

Easter is on it's way...

With Spring comes Hope...

Renewal, Growth, Rebirth, Purity.

Now normally I wouldn't pay attention to the change in the season...

I am more prone to Fall and Winter...

Dark, Gloomy, Sadness.

So what changed?

Everything...

Each and every thing I ever believed in had been turned on it's axis...

Out of that came a rebirth of self...

I have had help in this process...

So much help I am going to take the next few posts to list each person and thank them properly.

Next to Him, there is one in particular...

Child of Light vs my Child of Dark...

Almost complete opposites in every way...

A friend born out of adversity...

The commonality - Curve balls of life.

A healing smile...

A hearty laugh...

A helping hand...

Kind eyes...

A giving heart...

In the short time we have been in contact, this impact has been the one most felt.

C.J. - You came into my life like a gentle spring rain...

The promise of a wonderful friendship built on trust, honesty and unconditional love...

Tears have been shed together, late, late nights filled with real laughter after so much heartache...

Dreams shared, ideas tossed about, plans made...Living once again.

You have helped heal me in places deep within my heart that I never thought I would be healed...

I know that no matter then time, you will be standing right beside me - All I have to do is say the word...

You have pulled me kicking, screaming and fighting out of the darkness that envelops my life and shown me that the light is not to be feared but embraced and I thank Him each and every night for you.

My friends mean the world to me and during the last year I have lost quite a few...

Adding to that list makes me happy - People I know I can trust implicitly helps to heal me.


I have always been a firm believer in the fact that God puts different people in your life at different times for different reasons.

I don't really question that - I give Thanks for that...

Each person has something to offer if you stop and just allow their gift to be given to you.

Earth angels sent from above during the good as well as the bad...

You just have to be open enough to receive them.
