I don't know about you, but I find Giraffes absolutely beautiful.  Do you?

Tylie, I will miss you for the rest of my life.
We'll be back together one day, my precious little boy.

Teddy, my sweetest little boy, my heart is broken. I know you had to leave us to be with Tyler and Grampy & Yia Yia, but I have lost the last of my beloved little group. Mom, Dad, Smokey "Joe", Tyler and now Teddy. We'll all be together again one day, and I will never let you guys go again.

                         Kiya
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.

Erma Bombeck  "If I had my life to live over... "
Someone asked me the other day if I had my life to live over would I change anything. My answer was no, but then I thought about it
and changed my mind. If I had my life to live over again, I would have waxed less and listened more. Instead of wishing away 9 months of pregnancy, and complaining about the shadow over my feet, I'd have cherished every minute of it and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was to be my only chance in life to assist God in a miracle. 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 invited friends over to dinner, even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded. I would have eaten popcorn in the "good" living room and worried less about the dirt when you lit the fireplace. I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth. I would have burnt the pink candle that was sculptured like a rose before it melted while being stored. I would have sat cross-legged on the lawn with my children and never worried about grass stains. I would have cried and laughed less while watching television... and more while watching real life. I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband which I took for granted. I would have eaten less cottage cheese and more ice cream. 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 a day. I would never have bought ANYTHING just because it was practical /wouldn't show soil/guaranteed to last a lifetime. When my child kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now go get washed up for dinner." There would have been more I love yous...more I'm sorrys...more I'm listenings...but mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute of it...look at it and really see it...try it on...live it...exhaust it...and never give that minute back until there was nothing left of it." Written by Erma Bombeck when she was dying of cancer.

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 3 yrs., and have been a couple for 2 years and 6 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!
What Bugs Me Harming animals, bullying, RUDE PEOPLE!, unnecessarily cutting people off, unfriendly people, Those who hurt others weaker than them, People whom do harm unto others, People on cellphones while driving !, intolerance, injustice, ignorance, Evil people, Drunk Drivers  
Passions my guy Steve, animals, peace, nature, LIFE!!!, laughter, God's Creations  
Inspirations  
What Scares Me War - Cruelty - Greed - Indifference, Violent people, snakes, Losing the ones I love, Is how cruel the people of the world are, hate, fire, cruel people, abusers, Evilness and all that is linked to it  
  Favorites
Role Models Mom and Dad for their love and strength  
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.
