What's your sign?

A friend posted this link earlier this week....I finally took a minute to read it.
I would highly suggest that you read it too.

But really, think about it...
What does your sign say?
This got me thinking about my sign...
Please don't give up on me.  I'm going to make it.
Or perhaps...
This isn't what I had planned for my life.  Don't judge me.
I'm trying.
I used to be a caregiver, now I'm not sure what I am.

Thinking about this helped me to actually identify my struggles and now, I can work on them.
Also, now I'm thinking about other's signs.
This week my goal is to read their signs and act accordingly.
But really, just read the post.  
At the risk of sounding like a pot smoking hippie...
Love. At the end of the day, it's all that matters.
Love = Understanding
Changing the world doesn't have to be a grand gesture.
If we all could exercise a little more love and a lot more understanding and empathy, that would actually change the world for the better.

Change the world.

Regrets and Goodbyes....

Let me start by saying...I'm tired and teary and grumpy and that is not a good combination.
Today, I said goodbye to a good friend.
Not only that, 
but I also said goodbye to a sweet little primary baby that I've had since she was two.
I know that as it says in Disney's The Fox and the Hound..

it feels like forever.
I know it's not.  But it feels that way....
Which leads into the second part of this post...
Yes.  Believe it or not I have regrets.
Also, believe it or not, I don't make good friends easily...which is where the regret part comes in.
I am outgoing.  I think I'm friendly.
I am also horribly untrusting.
I don't give my friendship away easily.
So, MT...I'm sorry I wasn't the hound to your fox sooner.  I wish I had been.
You are hilarious and talented and beautiful and great mother and an amazing friend.
The time I have spent with you will always be treasured.
I am going to try harder to make friends more easily.
I've realized how much I miss out on when I don't.
God be with you 'till we meet again.
