Healthy Regret

Do I have regrets? Yes. But most of them I am pleased about. I have come to consider regret as a healthy sign that your conscience is working. So, when I have made a mistake, and I feel regret, well, that is the way I ought to feel. That regret helps me to avoid repeating […]

A Little Tender Care

Not sure if this time week I will be able to stand up straight, or wiggle my toes, or brush my own hair, or button up my raincoat. But I know that I feel safe and loved. That’s all that matters some days. The rest….I can wait for. The rest I can be patient in […]

SLS – Sex

So Jim has asked bloggers to feature songs about sex for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday…and I suddenly realized “hey!!!

Distance

I don’t want any distance, any division, any difference to cause the two of us to weaken our bond. I don’t want stress, tension, challenges to cause us to grow weary of each other. I want to stay close to you, because you mean so much to me. I want to be right here with […]
