Okay here are a few..... I've never met a stranger, I can talk to anyone.

I can tie a cherry stem with my tongue.

When I get lost, I actually see myself standing on a map & find my way everytime.

I honestly think I knew how to fly in another life & I am not talking about a plane . Sometimes I fly at night when I dream and hate to wake up!

I will one day travel down the Nile on a month long vacation.

I love music & I love dancing, I sing but cannot carry a tune....

I love reading, I read 50 books in the first grade & won ribbon and a copy of Bambi (which I still have).

As a child artist of 8, my "Tree" sponge-straw watercolor hung in the United Nations gallery.

I have two tatoos, Yin and Yang over my heart in honor of my beloved husband & a wild Irish rose with a butterfly on my right butt cheek so I never forget my free spirit.

When I was pregnant I craved rumaki YUMMY YUM!

I am an adrenaline junky, heights & speed, I have ridden every fast ride there is and have done all types of bungee jumping. The only thing I have not got to do is parachute BUT would in a heart beat!

I am a tea & coffee connoisseur, I have more of each than food in my kitchen cupboards.

I love sex and have been told I am quite gifted, lol!

Okay enough already Debra, what can I say I am a Gemini & can go on & on, giggles...

Live out each day like it might be your last
Don't plan for the future, don't hide from the past
Smile at strangers and you just might change a life
Offer kisses and hugs even in pain and strife

Don't count all your money, count all your friends
Don't look to the dark side as a means to the end
Shake off your stresses, your worries, your cares
This life is a challenge, so take on the dares

Don't tell people your heartaches, tell them your dreams
Let them know that life can be better than it seems
Don't number your problems, number the stars
Gaze up to heaven and see the distance isn't far

Don't let your whole life be ruled by your fear
Cherish the memories of all things you hold dear
Don't hold back the tears as they fall from your eyes
Don't give in to sadness, or fall for the lies

You can fly with the angels, you can sing in the night
Don't let your head doubt what your heart knows is right
Whisper a secret to the dawn of the day
Look to your loved ones to show you the way

Don't run from the truth, but accept it with pride
Don't keep all your feelings sheltered inside
Let your silver turn gold, let your hopes all come true
Pray your joys will be many and your sorrows be few

Let the glow in your heart reflect in your soul
So you know what it's like to have and to hold
Til death do you part, may you treasure the sights
That this life had to offer, its enchantments and delights

Search for contentment in each person you meet
Let yourself find freedom, don't just stand still on your feet
Dance, be at ease, for you've got one life to live
Put your heart on the line and give it all you can give

  1. THE GIFT OF LISTENING But you must REALLY listen.  No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response.  Just  listening.

  2. THE GIFT OF AFFECTION Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds.  Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

  3. THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER Clip cartoons.  Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, "I love to laugh with you".

  4. THE GIFT OF A WRITTEN NOTE It can be a simple "Thanks for the help" note or a full sonnet.  A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life.

  5. THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT A simple and sincere, "You look great in red", "You did a super job" or "That was a wonderful meal" can make someone's day.

  6. THE GIFT OF A FAVOR Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

  7. THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone.  Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.

  8. THE GIFT OF A CHEERFUL DISPOSITION The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone, really it's not that hard to say, Hello or Thank You.

I Am a Pagan
by Selena Fox
 

I am a Pagan.

I am a part of the whole of Nature.

The rocks, the animals, the plants, the elements are my relatives.

Other humans are my sisters and brothers, whatever their races, colors,
ages, nationalities, creeds, or sexual preferences.

The earth is my Mother and the sky is my Father.

The sun and moon are my Grandparents, and the stars my ancestors.

I am part of this large family of Nature, not the master of it.

I have my own special part to play and I seek to play that part to the best of my ability.

I seek to live in harmony with others in the family of Nature, treating others
with respect, not abuse...


I am a Pagan.

I pay attention to the seasons within myself - of beginnings, growth, fruition,
harvest, endings, rest, and beginnings again.

Life is a Circle with many cycles...
 

I am a Pagan.

I acknowledge that the Divine is everywhere in the energy of life.

I am Animistic. I sense the life force in the oak tree on the hill, in the herbs in the garden, in the birds singing at my window, in the boulders on the hill, in myself, and yes, even in "things" such as my car and computer.

I understand that everything has its physical and non-physical aspects.
The physical and spiritual are deeply intertwined, not separate, and one is not better than the other.
 

I am a Pagan.

My worship is one of communion, not groveling.

I share my views with others when I sense it is right, but I do not proselytize -
there are many ways, not one way, of spiritual growth.

My holy places are under the open sky ... in the Stone Circle in the oak grove on the top of the mound ... on the Vision Rock on the high cliff ... in the Garden in the fields ... in the Sweat lodge by the stream ... by the clear pool of the Sacred Spring ... in the Rainbow Cave in the valley.

Yet my worship can be anywhere ... my magic circle is portable.

I can call to the four quarters, to the earth and sky, and to the central spirit point wherever I may be.
 

I am a Pagan.

I journey to the Otherworld in my dreams, my meditations...
I fly with my consciousness through time and space.

I return with insights.

I go between the worlds for healing, growth, and transformation.

Psychic perception is a natural, not supernatural, part of my daily life.
 

I am a Pagan.

I attune myself to the four elements of Nature - Earth, Air, Fire, Water - and to the fifth element, Spirit, which is the force that connects all.

I see these elements as parts of my self - my physical body is my earth, my intellect my air, my will my fire, my emotions my water, and my inner self is my spirit.

I endeavor to keep myself healthy and in balance in all these parts of Self.
 

I am a Pagan.

I hear the cries of Mother Earth.

I see the pollution of the air, the soil, and the waters.

I see the games being played by nations with the fire of nuclear weapons.

I see spiritual pollution, too - selfishness, hatred, greed for money and power, despair.

I sense these things, but I sense, too, a cleansing, healing energy manifesting on the planet at this time.

I know that I can help bring the planet into greater balance by seeking balance in my own life.

I know that my attitudes and my way of living can make a difference.

I endeavor to be a channel for healing and balance.
