{ Be patient while music loads }


Today give yourself credit for the tiny gains

you make in your growth. Know that these

small steps eventually add up to giant leaps.

Humanity is never so beautiful as when

praying for forgiveness or else forgiving another.

Today try and conduct yourself to the best

of your ability and treat others with love and

respect. Be totally willing to make amends

to all persons you may have harmed.

{ All of the above - unknown }

The following poem was shared with me recently,

and it is one of the best poems I have ever read. I really am not

into poetry that much, but this one touched me like no other that I ever recall.

I hope it will touch some of you.

Having Come This Far

I've been through what my through was to be
I did what I could and couldn't
I was never sure how I would get there
I nourished an ardor for thresholds
for stepping stones and for ladders
I discovered detour and ditch
I swam in the high tides of greed
I built sandcastles to house my dreams
I survived the sunburns of love
No longer do I hunt for targets
I've climbed all the summits I need to
and I've eaten my share of lotus
Now I give praise and thanks
for what could not be avoided
and for every foolhardy choice
I cherish my wounds and their cures
and the sweet enervations of bliss
My book is an open life
I wave goodbye to the absolutes
and send my regards to infinity
I'd rather be blithe than correct
Until something transcendent turns up
I splash in my poetry puddle
and try to keep God amused.
