Lucie, I don't know why but this came to me in a dream last night and it's supposed to be for you, and I don't even know you! God works in mysterious ways.

Things Happen
By: Melissa Rose Forinash

People grow old
Light turns to dark
Summer surrenders to winter and
Passion waxes cold

Smiles turn to frowns
Caring turns to apathy
Day turns to night and
Love turns to hate

But always look beyond the
bad in your situation, because
in the midst of every hard
place there is a place of peace.
There are diamons in the rough.
There is a light at the end of
the tunnel and no matter how
long or hard winter maybe,
it always,
always gives way
to spring.

Thanks again...I guess free verse isn't so bad after all.
I hope Lucie likes it

I am not sure what to say.. this touched me like nothing else has in weeks. The message in the words is something that I have been fighting to remind myself daily. Though my days seem dark right now I am struggling to recapture my drive and spirit. I am a survivor! I can say this because in my heart I not only know it, I am it.

Yesterday was a bad day for me, I struggled with images and senerios in my mind that were so vivid that I was frightened of myself and my state of mind.

Earlier today, I felt a strength that I have not felt in a while. I went on a very positive interview for a new job. (which I think I will get... shhhh don't jinx it.hehe) Today.. I took a baby step in my climb back to the top!

Thank you for this Blondie. Thank you for thinking of me and reminding me that there are brighter days to come.

You must be a psychic, Blondie!

Very thoughtful and written just in the nick of time! I also watch over my dear sweet and best friend Lucie...I am so thankful others are thinking of her too and helping to keep her spirits up...!! That's what friends are for...We are all here for you Lucie, you just keep pushing your way to the top - you will make it, and someday you will look back on all this and say, "Wow, all that made me so much stronger!" Thanks Blondie !!
