This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach
Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go
And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home
Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”
So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me
I always try to live as if each day if the first day and the only day of my life. Ok, well not quite that dramatic but come on, you know you have to make the best of each day right? Make it special. Do something fun. Even if your idea of fun is cleaning the bathroom, then go for it.
I am so proud of so many folks. There is one beautiful girlie in particular that I never talk about and I cannot reveal her info here, but let's just say, she makes me look weak. She is strong and stunningly gorgeous and not healthy but you would never know it. Her attitude is this:
I want to wake up every morning proud of myself for not just getting through this time in my life, but for finding a reason to enjoy life every day, to let laughter burst through my lips so hard I can barely breathe, to smile so much that my face hurts and to dance around on the days when my body seems to be rebelling. Find peace with myself, know who I am in my heart, in my soul and stay true to that. Refuse to let a smaller person belittle me, stand strong for what I believe in, never waiver, never falter...keep pushing through, enjoying every little bump, hill, valley and mountain on the way.
Five years from now, when I look back at this time, I want to be proud of what I did, of who I became. That's all I want for Christmas.
That and some new warm socks! MY TOES ARE FREEZING! I love you all, I miss you all, and I hope all of you are having a glorious December.
I love her so very much and what she wishes and wants for herself, I want for her 1000X more!!!
What are some of your wishes and hopes for this Christmas and beyond into 2010? Do tell!
