"I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, you found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly, as you brushed away a tear.
... “It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here”
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea. You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, your arms were getting sore. I want to take your parcels, I wished I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, you tend it with such care. I want to reassure you that I’m not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house as you fumbled for the key, I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said “It’s me“.
You looked so very tired and then you sank into a chair, I tried so hard to let you know that I was standing there.
It’s possible for me to be so near you everyday, To say to you with certainty “I never went away“.
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew, That in the stillness of that evening I was very close to you.
The day is over…. I smile and watch you yawning and say, “Good Night, Sweet Dreams, I’ll see you in the morning”.
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I’ll rush to greet you and we’ll stand together side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there’s much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out; then come home and be with me."

|Wild Fact About Me
||I was born on a U.S. Air Force Base in Libya
||"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand -
strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!"
|What Gives Me Hope
||Knowing that the Universe will go on without us, we are not the center of it.
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||I would create a free child care center so parents can work without worrying about their children, then I would make sure every person was educated and provided health care so we can get people off of welfare, which will improve their self esteem.
I would also put more teachers in schools, and get rid of drugs to sedate kids. I would also create more parks so kids can get fresh air and exercise, which would help cut down on obesity.
And I would create more sidewalks and hiking trails to encourage people to walk more instead of having to drive their cars just to go around the block.
I would also go agains the oil lobbyists and find alternative forms of fuel to cut down on pollution.
I would also create days like "night outs" so people can get to know their neighbors and take back the night, keep their neighborhoods clean, and take pride in their world.
And I would do everything in my power to prosecute anyone who uses or sells a child as a sex slave.

I saw in that book that even the most intelligent can be victimized, so not to beat myself someone else takes advantage of me.

the beauty of nature,
the sound of the ocean,
to fulfill my purpose on earth
|What Scares Me
I am necrophobic
My maternal grandmother
||from Randy Pauch: Brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who donâ��t want something badly enough. They are there to keep out the other people.
