"When you do what you do because it's the right thing to do and just who you are, it's a great feeling. When someone calls you out of the blue to say thank you for doing what you did, it makes it that much sweeter." ~ Sabrina E. :)
I can't remember when you weren't there When I didn't care for anyone but you I swear we've been through everything there is Can't imagine anything we've missed Can't imagine anything the two of us can't do
Through the years You've never let me down You turned my life around The sweetest days I've found I've found with you Through the years I've never been afraid I've loved the life we've made And I'm so glad I've stayed Right here with you Through the years
I can't remember what I used to do Who I trusted whom, I listened to before I swear you've taught me everything I know Can't imagine needing someone so But through the years it seems to me I need you more and more
Through the years Through all the good and bad I knew how much we had I've always been so glad To be with you Through the years It's better everyday You've kissed my tears away As long as it's okay I'll stay with you Through the years
Through the years When everything went wrong Together we were strong I know that I belonged Right here with you Through the years I never had a doubt We'd always work things out I've learned what love's about By loving you Through the years
Through the years You've never let me down You've turned my life around The sweetest days I've found I've found with you Through the years It's better everyday You've kissed my tears away As long as it's okay I'll stay with you Through the years
Some say love, it is a river That drowns the tender reed. Some say love, it is a razor That leaves your soul to bleed. Some say love, it is a hunger, An endless aching need. I say love, it is a flower, And you its only seed.
It's the heart afraid of breaking That never learns to dance. It's the dream afraid of waking That never takes the chance. It's the one who won't be taken, Who cannot seem to give, And the soul afraid of dyin' That never learns to live.
When the night has been too lonely And the road has been too long, And you think that love is only For the lucky and the strong, Just remember in the winter Far beneath the bitter snows Lies the seed that with the sun's love In the spring becomes the rose.
While she lays sleeping, I stay out late at night and play my songs And sometimes all the nights can be so long And it's good when I finally make it home, all alone While she lays dreaming, I try to get undressed without the light And quietly she says how was your night? And I come to her and say, it was all right, and I hold her tight
[Chorus] And she believes in me, I'll never know just what she sees in me I told her someday if she was my girl, I could change the world With my little songs, I was wrong But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right I will find a way, find a way
While she lays waiting, I stumble to the kitchen for a bite Then I see my old guitar in the night Just waiting for me like a secret friend, and there's no end While she lays crying, I fumble with a melody or two And I'm torn between the things that I should do And she says to wake her up when I am through, God her love is true.
"When we decide to be happy we accept the responsibility to bring happiness to someone else. Some decide that happiness and glee are the same thing, they are not. When we choose happiness we accept the responsibility to lighten the load of someone else and to be a light on the path to another who may be walking in darkness." ~ Maya Angelou :)
"We learn something from everyone who passes through our lives.. Some lessons are painful, some are painless.. but, all are priceless." ~ Cathy Greek :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago. Cheers! :)
I have been neglecting both blogs lately. There is no reason.
The noon posts are published on their own. The 5:55pm posts need to be published manually despite being scheduled much earlier just like the noon posts. Why? I don't know. I have a lot to write about. But I must maintain a low profile; perhaps no profile at all. All-in-all I'm very grateful and thankful. My eyes are opened bigger. My mind is more alert. I question more often. I trust but I verify. Am I still the same person? Yes and no. It depends on who you are. I separate the wheat from the chaff. Cheers! :)
Most of the things we do in life, we do for the sake of something else. We work to earn money. We exercise to stay fit and trim. We study to pass exams. We read to relax. And so on. But life's most sublime moments often occur when we engage in activities entirely for their own sake; without any ulterior motives :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago.

"There are some things I just will never understand, in reality I probably don't want to understand them. So I will just sit back, and shake my head at it." ~ Cristy Lewis :) * This post, and 99% of the noon posts, was written more than a year ago. Cheers! :)
"If you're living at the surface of life, riding the waves, you need that little boat and you constantly seek company in there to endure all the seasickness and storms. If you're the ocean, you don’t need the boat. You don’t need to get in the boat with others and you don’t need to drag others into yours. You can just be the ocean and heal yourself and others as you spread love and stay calm and peaceful in the moment." ~ Leonard Cohen :)
To be a great leader, we must not overlook the importance of kindness. It goes hand in hand with empathy, and is compassion in action. It is often undervalued by society and is sometimes associated with weakness by the successful. Yet good leaders know that it is the single most effective shortcut to happiness, for themselves as well as their teams :)
