A simple act of kindness...


My mom clipped this from the anchorage paper. How wonderful would if be if this sweet little girl were to get cards from all over the world? I am sending her one today. I hope some of you will join me and send her one as well! She is only 4 so a cool post card with a bright and fun photo of where you are from and 'GET WELL SOON' on the back would be enough!

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

You make me feel like I am home again...

There are songs that are so bound to my emotional memories I can hear the first few notes of the bass line and I swear I am 16 again.
I get a sudden rush of emotions from that time in my life. Even the air starts to smell like it did in the fall of 1990.
This avalanche of emotions takes me over. The anxieties I was feeling at the time are as real during this three minute song as they were back then.
I remember that there was a boy and he was my whole world. I would have done anything for him. I remember his crooked smile, and the way he could make my heart hurt in a way only a first love can. I remember how he changed me. How he made me trust a little less, made me believe a little less, made me understand that there are no "happily ever afters" only "devils you know".
I allow myself to remember because I know that someday she might ask me about him and I have to try to remember as much as I can so I can tell her everything I know.

Then the song ends
and I am here again
and so happy that part of my life is behind me.
