i can see things i once never even noticed.
i can sing a new song. write it like a ballad.
i can look up into a tree. a huge redwood.
see God's handprint higher than the stars.
i can cry, and not be so ashamed and embarrassed.
i can love better because i have lived 66 years.
there aren't so many mysteries as before.
i can tell you, no matter HOW impossible it looks,
that it is going to be okay. you watch. you'll see.
it is all going to work out.
i can just tell you today that i wish i could get
a spray-tan. that i just look so much better
with a little color on me. and i turned a corner
too fast and hit the corner edge, and have a purple
knot on my forehead, and i'm afraid to go out.
today is one of those 'hard times', and i just have
to get through it. because tomorrow brings new
hard and easy things and i have to be ready for them.
i just want to so thank you for being a facebook member
with me. and sharing your hearts until i can feel the ocean
depths with sand between my fingers. every single kind
word you have sent me i have read, and been really touched.
and i just want to remind you, at least this one more time....
that we are warriors. and we need, at all times, to be ready.
i love you. ann
p.s. please pray for jan.
she is in alot of pain.
