I agree, the fact that you can find her qualities, they are still right there on that stubborn shelf inside you Sue if this is about you that is. Hope you are enjoying your new digs, I have been so busy this year forgot to send a welcome!
Waste not a second ~ Carpe' Diem
Somewhere in time~
wow, a good question, what ever happened to the me i used to be, have you ever heard the tale of the ugly duckling that grew up to be a swan, well perhaps you have not looked in the water for awhile, if you do you will see a reflection of the beutifill lady you have become.
yes, it is possible for life to change you...but it's people that change you, they can either touch your life in a good way, or a bad one...and I believe most of us have a taste of both, it's for us to learn from the bad stuff, and go forward, stronger, but not angry.
Love to ya and thank you for the ponder...
