Slow Dance

Saw this and wanted to share it  

Make it a great day. 

Slow Dance 

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. She wants to see how many people get her poem. It is quite a poem, please pass it on. 

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.

It was sent by a medical doctor Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?

 Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?

When you ask, “How are you?”

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,

with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child, 

We’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die 

Cause you never had time 

To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last..

When you run so fast to get somewhere,

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift….

Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.

FORWARDED E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL COUNT.

Dear All: 

PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know – even to those you don’t know!

It is the request of a special girl, who will soon leave this world due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. 

She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own.

By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to, the American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6.

 It’s not even your money, just your time! Please read n forward …

Friends

I usually don’t post pictures of myself here. But I wanted to post this one of my very good friend, Aldona and me. 


I met my friend, Aldona (left) about 2 1/2 years ago. We started off as co-workers and became friends. 

She was transferred to Dubai for work. We kept in touch. But it’s missed seeing my friend. 

She recently moved back to the States and I’m so thrilled to see my friend again.  

There are just some people that are on that special list. She is one of them. I trust her (which is something I don’t do often) and know that I can say anything and not be judged or criticized. Which is a rare quality in people. 

I have been blessed to have Aldona as my friend and I look forward to doing things around town with her. 

Friends

I recently lost a “friend” or someone that I thought was a friend. I saw them the other day and thought to myself I should be the bigger person and see if we still had a friendship. But then I saw this and I realized, maybe we were meant to be friends. 

Pets

A friend from Kindergarten posted this on Facebook. Her mother’s cat passed away the other day. 

I had never seen this before. 

In memory of my cat, Phil and for my friend’s cat too. 

Four Feet in Heaven

Your favorite chair is vacant now…

No eager purrs to greet me.

No softly padded paws to run

Ecstatically to meet me.

No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry

Will say it’s time for feeding.

I’ve put away your bowl, and all

The things you won’t be needing;

But I will miss you little friend,

For I could never measure

The happiness you brought me,

The comfort and the pleasure.

And since God put you here to share

In earthly joy and sorrow;

I’m sure there’ll be a place for you

In Heaven’s bright tomorrow…

True To My Words

Well, being true to my words that I have been saying these past couple of months…

The first friendship lost for the year happened. This was a person who told me to my face that we were friends and that they trusted me and that I could trust them. I believed that for a while, but their actions were totally something different.

I gave them a 2nd chance (3rd chance) and thought we could still be friends, but after what I have seen and heard, I am tapping out! I am DONE!

I’m sure that person probably won’t even care, but at least I will know where I stand and I will not allow myself to give one more ounce of thought to them.

So to that person who was once my friend… thanks for the hard lesson on who I can count as my friends. You are definitely not one of them.

 

This Is Your Life

I saw this posted on my friend, Derek’s Facebook page. 

It’s everything I want in my life.
