How unique....just like you, friend....
You are a very special lady......


Oh, Gary told me that he liked your
comments to me on my poems about him.
He liked you saying that he is a "Household
Name" around here......LOL

Marti ~

It is rather amusing to me that you have read this "over and over and over" because I posted it as soon as I finished writing it and have only read the completed poem once! It is highly satisfying to me that you have read it repeatedly and that you shared that with me. Thank you, Dear friend, for your wonderful reply.

Now I would like you to read my poem yet again!--only this time, I want you to say "I am" instead of "Be" at the beginning of each line!

Loveyalots!

(smiles) Oh Linda, this is gorgeous, sweet friend, you are just so creative and delightful! (kiss on cheek) You truly are an angel, for you represent everything on the left side of each line and truly can influence so many more with your light and love, yay, God Bless You, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Linda, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Be a singer, not a groaner

But when I sing, others groan? LOL This is great, EA! *S*

It is curious that you should say that I represent everything on the left side--I had just been thinking the same thing about you!

Marti ~

Keep saying "I am" instead of "Be" and these affirmations will lead to the manifesting of these statements as truths--if they aren't already!

Smile through the tears and God will send you a rainbow...

Love ya,

I definately want to be alive and not rotted!

Remember me with a smile on your face, or please don't remember me at all.
