5000 Posts

In your words,
Iíve lived 5000 lives;
conquered dragons,
loved with all my heart,
laughed,
cried,
discovered unknown places,
and more importantly...
believed in myself once more
as well as you.

Iíve found support,
encouragement,
compassion,
truth and
friendship.

Iíve shared your pain
your happiness,
your love,
your hurt,
and your lives.

Through your words
Iíve learned the meaning
of life,
of love,
of fear,
and of strength.

Iíve found here
a safe haven,
a world where dreams still exist,
and a place
where I am accepted
for who I am.

5000 posts,
and each one from my heart
to yours.


Wow...post number 5000 and it goes out to everyone here. Words can not express all the feelings I have for you all. You are by far the most wonderful group of people I have ever had the opportunity of knowing. I just want to say thanks for everything and keep writing and I'll keep reading  


 When you truly know the meaning
of the word Love,
you will also know the meaning
of the word Pain

Though impressed, I am not surprised by this at all. 'Tis a lofty height you would have us aspire to.

Ruth, geez girl 5,000 writes, I thought I was doing good almost getting to 1,000 LoL  We do so appreciate all the warm, caring, considerate comments you make (well at least I do LoL).  And once again, Happy Birthday (belated now LoL)  BTW, darn dog actually pushed me in the pool this afternoon, she's not going outside with me again LoL  hehe *hugs*

You've come far, Ruth... I recall many a day chatting with you on that "other board" nearly two years ago now.... You're a great lady - It's wonderful to see you grow as a person in your own right, and to support our passionate poets as they do the same.
Love

ONLY 5000 posts?  That's strange - I feel as if I've known you all my life.  Maybe it seems like you've posted more than that because I've read much of your work more than once.
