Sigh . . .

Or do they?  Who gets to decide? 
Only true for some . . . 
if you are the some, you are very lucky.

Words like this come easy, but how
does one keep themselves
from looking

Sometimes I don't feel very strong
I don't feel very strong
at all





  1. Hold your head up high and be proud Marie bc your someone special my friend! ~♥~ ~♥~ ~♥~

    Love and big hugs!

  2. Hi Marie. You're a wonderful, kind hearted, caring person. If other people can't see that, family or otherwise, then it's their loss.
    I'm proud to have you as my friend. Thinking of you and sending lots of love and hugs. Love you xxx

  3. Dear Marie, I sense you’re having a difficult day- sending you love

  4. Sorry you are having a bad day. I don't know what's caused this but I have to say from what I read in your blog you are a kind, caring and compassionate person. So dust yourself off, pick yourself up and start all over again. Xx

  5. One thing I know, maybe 3, is that nothing stays the same forever, this too shall pass and nothing is impossible with God. Hang in there! Hope shines in the darkest moments!

  6. All these quotes are fine and dandy..and can be inspiring and I do Pin many.
    But in the big picture..many days..they just don't cut it.

    I used to be Pollyanna..all will be well..etc..everything happens for a reason..Does it?

    Once something hurts you to the core..and does not get better..and you have literally done everything in your power to help it along..and it doesn't.
    Discouragement sets it.

    I believe in your case things can and will turn around.One Day.

    Marie..people I know have had dismissive parents..yet they love their parents.
    You have not been dismissive..

    On FB..someone's dad died.. a friend of his dad's wrote a heartwrenching comment..looong..and lovely and loving..

    one thing stuck with me.. he said that he always kept in contact with his dear friend and they emailed constantly..he said I see now that keeping up w/ someone's life by email is not seeing the full picture.
    I agree.

    He felt that if he had visited his friend he would have seen..the need for his companionship..sort of those words..

    I never thought one would have to be a warrior to get through life.

    You are a warrior Marie..everything you have lived through shows it.

    Keep it up..Victories and miracles do happen♥We have to keep believing that!
    In the mean of how many people you do bring joy to.That should fill a gap quite nicely:)♥

  7. Marie I'm so sorry your feeling this way....I just know that feeling! But I guess as I get older I'm tired of being judged and not knowing what I did wrong...but life goes on. Your a loving and kind person Marie so I'm sending Gentle hugs, you have so many people who do love you and care for remember that!💓 Di

  8. Hi Marie~

    I wish I was there to give you a big hug, it sounds like you could use one.

    Sometimes it's hard to stay strong, and in those moments, it's also okay to talk about it, or even scream about it! I'm glad you felt you could share with those who love you. There are times that I just have to stop, take a deep breath, focus on the things that are going right in my life, and try to let go of those things that aren't working, at least for a time. Sometimes it means letting go of people in my life, not forever, but just take a step back. Not all families are strong, close and loving. In fact, I don't know very many that are, mine included. I've shed many tears over the years because of it. I don't agree with the quote about not looking back. Sometimes I have to look back to see how far I have my friend have come a long way!! It's okay to look back, just don't turn around and start walking back.

    You are so loved, Marie, don't ever forget that! Take the time you need to grieve, have a good cry, but be gentle with are an amazing woman and your worth is so great!

    Sending prayers and love across the sea sweet friend.

    Gentle hugs and Love,

  9. Thanks everyone, your words are not wasted. I cherish and take them all to heart. I have the best friends and you are counted amongst them. Love you all and I feel your love in return. xoxo
