TO A PHENOMENAL WOMAN When I was in my younger days, I weighed a few pounds less, I needn't hold my tummy in to wear a belted dress. But now that I am older, I've set my body free; There's comfort of elastic Where once my waist would be. Inventor of those high-heeled shoes My feet have not forgiven; I have to wear a nine now, But used to wear a seven. And how about those blasted tights -- They're sized by weight, you see, So how come when I put them on The crotch is at my knee? I need to wear these glasses As the print's been getting smaller; And it wasn't very long ago I know that I was taller. Though my hair has turned to grey and my skin no longer fits, On the inside, I'm the same old me, the outside's changed a bit. But, on a positive note... I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life just being a doormat. You need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Awww Amck thats lovely - It makes me think about sometimes how I fight with my mother over stupid things or when I cut her short cos I havent time to listen, and do you know what ? I feel bad about it, cos we dont like thinking about it, but someday she might not be there to listen to or fight with, and then I dont know what I will do without her - At lunchtime she will wonder what drug Im taking cos she is getting a big hug when I see her ! :xox

I know I was in bad form this morning cause I was tired then one of the girls brought me in a purple snack to have with my morning tea and that cheered me up - it is the small things that matter.
