think of u 19.jpg



Named to be a queen of a Pharaoh,
But never seeing it come to light.
Unaware, her life was on borrow,

To be taken with no chance to fight.
With the sparkle of a little child,
Witnessed by those who truly loved her.
Her love was free to any that smiled
With a kind loyalty like no other.
Sadly, bound by rules of fate unknown
Bares the black heart of humanity.
Poor little Kiya became its pawn,
To a beast she was helpless to see.
Yet brighter lights shine for Kiya now,
To run through hills and fields of heather.
She is free from her earthly vow;
‘’Befriend without bias to whomever.’’
Many outraged have given their plead,
A fury of one cannot stand alone.
Now is the time to make black hearts bleed.
To Hell, their souls, and the slayer’s own.

This tribute poem to Kiya was composed by my boyfriend, Steve.

If I had My Life to Live Over

by Erma Bombeck (written after she found out she was dying from cancer).

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.

I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now go get washed up for dinner." There would have been more "I love you's." More "I'm sorry's."

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute...look at it and really see it. live it. and never give it back.

Stop sweating the small stuff.

Don't worry about who doesn't like you, who has more, or who's doing what.

Instead, let's cherish the relationships we have with those who do love us.

                       Life is Not Measured
                          by the Number of
                          Breaths You Take,
                               but by the
                          Take Your Breath

To Those I Love

(By Isla Paschal Richardson )
If I should ever leave you whom I love
To go along the Silent Way,
Grieve not,
Nor speak of me with tears,
But laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you there.

( I'd come - I'd come, could I but find a way!
But would not tears and grief be barriers? )
And when you hear a song
Or see a bird I loved,
Please do not let the thought of me be sad...
For I am loving you just as I always have...
You were so good to me!

There are so many things I wanted still to do -
So many things to say to you...
Remember that I did not fear...
It was Just leaving you that was so hard to face...
We cannot see Beyond...
But this I know:
I love you so -
'twas heaven here with you!

Wild Fact About Me Loved roller coasters! One time, at the beach, my friends couldn't find me after they saw me get on the roller coaster, they were too chicken to join me. They went on another ride, I stayed on the coaster 12 times in a row. They didn't look there!
My Philosophy Live and let live.
What Gives Me Hope The love of a wonderful man, my boyfriend, Steve. We've known each other for 2 yrs. 11 months, and have been a couple for 2 years and 4 months. He treats me like a princess, and I treat him as he should be treated, like the prince that he is. Believe me, I've kissed many frogs before I found my prince, Steve. :-)
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Eliminating all harm to animals and humans. Prosecute, without any tolerance for, animal abuse, child abuse, and violence to women, perpetrators. Absolutely no tolerance for it and no second chances for anyone guilty of it.
What/who changed my life and why My guy, Steve, because I am moving to FL from MA to be with him. I've lived in New England all my life, and never considered living anywhere else. I'd rather live in his world, than be without him in mine. He has convinced me to move down to FL. I am so looking forward to it! Now, that's a real life changer! :-) Update! I'm here, since March 17, 2014!

Quotation "We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."

- Aldo Leopold
"Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see."

- Mark Twain

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."

- Dalai Lama

"Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together."

- Robert Redford

"The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children."

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer, German Theologian.

"To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!"

- Ralph Waldo Emerson, American author/philosopher.

"Those who experiment on animals should never be able to quiet their own conscience by telling themselves that these cruelties have a worthy aim."

- Albert Schweitzer, physician/Nobel Laureate.

"The more I know about people, the better I like my dog."

- Mark Twain, American author.

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living beings, humanity will not find peace."

- Albert Schweitzer, physician/Nobel Laureate.

"The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as now they look upon the murder of men."

- Leonardo Da Vinci, Renaissance artist/inventor.
