LostDreamer~
Thank you.  I'm glad you liked it.
The format isn't exactly as I planned it,
but I've been trying to force-feed this poem as a post for DAYS !  
The preview button just didn't like it.
So, I had to send it blind.
Poop !

Tracie~
It isn't really me doing the falling ..
but there are some lovely people here
who need the arms of friends to catch them.
Thanks, glad you liked.

I think if I were to fall you would be there to try to catch me.  Cause that's the way you are.

Profound.  I don't know what it is Marge/mom,
but you always appear with words of wisdom for me...  someday I should explain, but today I just thank you and applaud.  LOUDLY.

Very creative artwork!  It matches the feelings perfectly.  If it was any better, none of could imagine how.  It must be frustrating, having to send it blind, though.  This is unique!

If you had 'let go'
we'd have been here to catch you.
Glad you didn't have to though.  

CompGirl~
Wow !  What a nice compliment.  Thank you.

Hoot~
Thank you.

Rosemary~
My friend, if it's good enough to
pass your inspection ...
it's gotta be pretty gosh-darned okay !
HUG HUG HUG HUG HUG HUG .... Thank you !

AAAaaahhhhhh!
There's "Marge-Art" again!  This is witty, to say the least.  Isn't it amazing how differently the words read when they are "active" in type?  This is a grand display of your talent!

thank you marge.....and know that yes it does help. think there might be some more out there that might need this at this time of year.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and know that I love it when you are honest with me. sometimes what we want to hear should not be said, but what we need to hear whether we like it or not is just right.
Thanks again.
Annie

there is but a short time to exist, love,laugh,live and never stop believing in miracles
