My wishes are for sunshine
rainbows: slight or bright
the joy of love that melts you
with sparkling stars and waxy moonlight

My wish for you is good health
a whole you each & every day
I know you'll have your troubles
but we'll solve them and they'll fly away

My wish for you is success in all that you do
I know you'll put your all into everything your try
that success replaces failures
please know I'll be here should you need to cry

My wish for you is peace of mind
a love that's tried and true
I'm a friend who'll hold you closely
no matter what you do

My wish for you is answers
to every question you may send
I send you all my wishes
because
I love you deeply - my very dear good friend

Colors of the Rainbow - De Colores

Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel.  All claimed that they were the best.

The most important.  The most useful.  The favorite.

GREEN said:

"Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and of hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority."

 
BLUE interrupted:

"You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, you would all be nothing."

 
YELLOW chuckled:

"You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun."

 
ORANGE started next to blow her trumpet:

"I am the color of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes, and pawpaws. I don't hang around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you."

 
RED could stand it no longer he shouted out:

"I am the ruler of all of you. I am blood - life's blood! I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to fight for a cause. I bring fire into the blood. Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon. I am the color of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy."

 
PURPLE rose up to his full height:

He was very tall and spoke with great pomp: "I am the color of royalty and power. Kings, chiefs, and bishops have always chosen me for I am the sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me! They listen and obey."

 
Finally INDIGO spoke, much more quietly than all the others, but with just as much determination:

"Think of me. I am the color of silence. You hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial. I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace."

And so the colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own superiority.

Their quarreling became louder and louder.  Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening thunder rolled and boomed.

Rain started to pour down relentlessly.
The colors crouched down in fear, drawing close to one another for comfort.

In the midst of the clamor, rain began to peak:

"You foolish colors,

fighting amongst yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest.  Don't you know that you were each made for a special purpose, unique and different? 

Join hands with one another and come to me."

Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined hands.

The rain continued:

"From now on, when it rains, each of you will stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace.

The Rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow."

And so, whenever a good rain washes the world, and a Rainbow appears in the sky, let us remember to appreciate one another.

In my search
for the Rainbows end,
I found, not GOLD,
but you my friend.

Thank you!

Thanks guys..

It's strange or at least it feels strange to me but I try to find the love even if it hurts and if I can't find that, then I try to find a way in my mind that will build a pathway to something that lessens the sadness but mostly it's about hiding the hurt and I don't really know if that is good or bad...I'm too much of a talker, always think that talking solves it all, but I guess sometimes how you feel can't be repaired, so you bury it..

HUGS and thanks for trying to see beyond the words..

"I'd bore Toe to sleep" ... I know Toe is pretty old, but I doubt it though ...
