Maybe this Christmas
Iíll cut the ribbon.
Not from a boxed gift,
but to the open door that beckons.

Maybe this Christmas
youíll call me on the phone.
Your voice is music
to which no carol can compare.

Maybe this Christmas
I wonít be alone.
Your presence is constant
even if youíre not physically there.

Maybe this Christmas
youíll book a flight to visit me.
But until you arrive here,
Iíll see you in my dreams.

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."-Jeremiah 33:3, King James Version

"Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path."-Psalm 119:105, New Living Translation

The present and future are not about who you were in the past-rather, they are about who you are and who you will become.

"Writing is truly glorious in that an author can put on paper the words that fear denies the voice to speak."-from my short story, "Set Free"

"...What you feel is what you are;
What you are is beautiful..."
-from "Slide" by the Goo Goo Dolls

Life surprises you! And I'm talking about the good stuff, because a bad surprise is not a surprise at all, it is just shock and horror. All of these good surprises, they are rewards, and the things that happen to remind you that you matter and that you should make yourself faithful so that you can be deserving of all of life's good surprises. Every wonderful surprise in life is a chance to flourish, so grab life by the horns-but don't ride, steer instead: life's horns are life's joystick. You can handle it, because your life's horns are made especially for you. If you don't give up, all of this will hold true and life will continue to surprise you.

Aubri, a. k. a. "Leopard Lady"

Poignant, Aubri.
This is lovely Aubri...so poignant and telling.
I hope this is not from personal experience. The longing was palpable.

Happy New Year!
