Friday Frills

As you travel through life, there are always those times when decisions just have to be made, 
When the choices are hard, solutions are scarce and the rain seems to soak your parade. 

There are some situations where all you can do is to simply let go and move on, 
Gather your courage together and choose a direction that carries you toward a new dawn. 

There could be adventures you never imagined just waiting around the next bend
And wishes and dreams just about to come true in ways you can't yet comprehend.

Perhaps you'll find friendships that spring from new interests, as you challenge your status quo.
And learn there are so many options in life, and so many more ways you can grow.

Perhaps you'll go places you never expected and see things that you've never seen, 
Or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds and a few wonderful spots in between. 

Perhaps you'll find warmth, affection & caring, a "somebody special" who'll always be there 
To help you stay centered and listen with interest to the fears and feelings you share. 

Perhaps you'll find comfort in knowing your friends are supportive of all that you do 
And believe that whatever decisions you make, they will be the right choices for you. 

So keep putting one foot in front of the other and take your life day by day. 
There's a brighter tomorrow that's just down the road, so 
Don't look're not going that way! 

Poem by June Marie Johnson

Always amazing words from an amazing girl! The supportive friend, I am 100% sure you are the one!
The picture was taken in Copacabana, wow!
As I told you sometimes, I have difficulties in making decisions. Especially thinking "right ones?" Normally I end up thinking they were wrong. But that's my way, we can just look forwards, like the poem says "you are not going that way - back".
I feel a bit better during the day, and evenings coughing restarts. I decided to go to a doctor on Monday, even if I am not coughing anymore. Better to be sure it's all OK or not. And thanks a loooot for your nice words on the blog! In fact, I just came here today to anaswer that - and will go back to sleeping now - still a bit weak!
Have a fabulous weekend!!!!! I miss reading your posts, soon I'll restart!

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

That last line is the best and one that I totally believe in. It's just too easy to get caught up in the past and not be able to move forward.

Have a lovely weekend Sam!
