Thoughts for You Today

Updated on December 29, 2011

Goodbye my love

Sadly, as 2011 prepares to say "farewell," may we remember those people who have touched our lives this year. May we take them into the future with us, to share our moments of friendship once more in 2012. To all my inspirational Hub buddies, I love you all. Have a fantastic 2012

Celebrate 2012 together

A celebration of friendship.

For You

I am what I am and nothing more

You are what I see, I am in awe

Standing before me, your aura shines

Your love and wisdom, so divine

Loving hands I gather to my heart

Engaging feelings to the world, impart

For when I am with you all that I can see

Are numbered days laid before me

White light glows amongst flowers laid

Tiny steps we waltz in the glade

You hold me, willing my life to stay

Movement takes me further away

As my life slips in your heart I remain.

A true friend forever, never to twain.

      Even the sad stuff you've written makes me smile. You have that dazzling effect on our hearts.

      I love that about you, Irish. :)

      I'm not going to worry about numbered days though. I'm gonna grab them all and soak up every bit of joy and good things I can get from every moment I can squeeze out of them.

      Very happy you're a part of that. We'll face the new year as friends and shout, "Bring it on!"

      Annette this is such an eloquent poem from the heart, it was a joy to read.

      I read your 'Rant' and then arrived here. Without this cyber world I would never have met such friends as you.

      Although life is short and it is sad to see another year slip by so quickly, too quickly, I know for many here 2011 was a year of new beginnings. A year of new friendships and a year of seeing the world through other's eyes.

      We will slip into 2012 taking memories of special moments with us, whether they be sad or happy memories they have touched our lives. And no doubt in 2012 we will make some new friendships and experience more of those special moments.

      So I will drink to this cyber world, to the friendship of those around me and to those I have yet to meet.

      I am proud to be able to count you amongst my special friends

      Love you lady

      Annette - very beautifully said.

      Have a Happy New Year. 2012 will be full of many slippery slopes I'm sure. Such is the way life can be.

      Thank you so much too Annette, for this heartfelt and so beautiful message.

      A close hub family and friends so sincere,as Sunnie has already said I am also blessed to be your friend.

      Time is sometimes cut short so why waste any on unimportant people or circumstances.

      Take care my dear friend and I look forward to see what this new year has in store for us.
