Heartfelt Appreciation Never Dies.

Source

Well here we are with Christmas fast approaching and today I take a few moments to contemplate this past year; this is also a chance for me to thank you all(you are all too numerous to mention and I don't want to leave anyone out.)


I spent a little time away from HubPages but returned with an eager heart and each welcome back were priceless.I realised just how much you all meant to me and this time I returned for good.

One of my most precious dreams was to find my true worth and not to develop the traits of a Chameleon;changing in accordance to each day and wherever life took me.

Now I know who I am and I know where I want to be ; I also know I want to share my story in order to offer others that guiding hand.

Thank you so much to you all for your support , friendship and endless inspiration.

I will never take anything for granted and I will always have that wondrous outlook on life.

I will never lose my respect for Mother Nature's inspiration and also my growing appreciation of The Cherokees;I can relate so well to their faith and beliefs;I grew up spending most of my childhood exploring every inch of the Welsh countryside surrounding my home with my Beagle Lassie.I learnt so much and grew to trust Mother Nature's gifts of each season and all they bring.

Life has been up and down as it is for most of us but what is important is that I have made my way and today I Belong.

Here's to a long time to come of all these precious traits and God bless you all.

Eddy.

The stars lit up the moonlit sky;

an outburst of soul searching emotions

caressing that sweet moon of love..........................................


Each sunrise devotedly

promises

a love so new

almost bathed in the waters of innocence

so true

so sincere

each promise shining from

golden hues........................


The Noon's blue sky

accept the tender stroke of each white

soft heartfelt

cloud

so softly

scented

cushioned gems

hearts and souls accepting.......................


Each sunset

sees a love almost matured

to be believed

to be relished

a sweet scent

of treasures

a love story to eternally flow............................


Simple a sweet

soft moments

marked out

into each amazing ocean of life

emotions which are so true

as each heart has opened so ready

to accept these green pastures so new...................


Each year upon years

we love

we share

we care

as a tapestry so expertly woven

on life's loving loom....................


We are pressed into one

time stands still

before exploding

into dreams

so loved

so cherished

for so long awaited.

in the blink of an eye all changes eternally ......................


Allow your heart to

to

paint that picture of true love

to be appreciated

to be cherished

and live your life

with a heart

which deserves

that love

so beautiful.........................


A sweet dream come true.

The most special traits

The most precious of all

Of understanding and kindness

So sincere each call.

x

If you see a poor vagrant

Oh on his back is his all.

Do not go with life's flow

Make him feel ten feet tall.

x

There may be a millionaire

So stripped of his riches

Will his friends stick by

Or is it simply no contest.

x

I am sure we are all to blame

Sometimes in life's flow

But it's never too late

To allow our hearts to grow.

x

So let's stand tall together

Never shall we forget

The truest,most precious gift of all

Come straight from each true heart.

I have three words which have become so important to me these last three years or so:

Expect,Accept and Appreciate.

Take care and here's to many happy tomorrows.

Eddy.

Ah, Dear Eddy, this was beautiful and I so happy that you've returned as a very active member of HubPages. You have touched, and continue to touch the heart and soul of many, including myself, with your poetry, stories and photos.

Thank you for the gift of friendship and this special hub.

BTW, I have always loved the song, "Somewhere," especially as my high school class chose it for our graduation, but this version by the Celtic Women is absolutely breathtaking. Thanks for sharing it.

Am voting this hub up across the board and sharing.
