See Things For What They Can Be

True Friends

You know, it’s amazing how we meet people throughout our lives. Some, are in our lives for years on end and some for only a short time. I would like to address those who become True Friends. They have become an integral part of our lives, almost like family to us. We have spent countless hours together, laughing, talking, and crying together. We know a lot about each other. We have relied on the other for various reasons. We are ecstatic when a friend comes through for us. What would we do without them? 
Sometimes our changing lives will cause us to have to separate from our friends. We are sadden because we won’t be able to see one another on regular terms. Sometimes an argument will “break” friends up. That creates hostility between the involved parties.  Sometimes it’s a change in lifestyle that will cause friends to drift. 
True Friends will never let distance come between them. They will finds ways to stay in touch. We may not always hear their voices, see their faces, or touch them, but we know they are still, our True Friends.
True Friends will never let hostilities come between them. Sure there may be some time that goes by when we don’t talk to them, but when we are able to chill and reconnect….now that’s, True Friends.
True Friends won’t let change in lifestyles come between them. Remember? We’ve spent those countless hours together…talking, laughing, crying, helping each other, witnessing marriages, births and deaths…together. No…we won’t let change come between us…because we are, True Friends.
So I dedicate this post to all True Friends. You have been there since the beginning, and we stay…True Friends. 

Rain? Water?

Rain and water, one and the same, a liquid, yet we treat each differently. Water is our everyday substance that we cannot do without. We use it in all sorts of commodities, drinks, hair products, bathing products, we use it to wash our clothes, to clean our floors, wash our hands, our cars, we play in it to no end at the beaches and the water parks, we love it so much we have pools in our back yards. We cannot do without water when it comes to the necessities of life and to enjoy in our recreations. We freeze it to accommodate us during the hot summer months, cold drinks, frosty flavored drinks….we welcome this liquid.
Rain for some odd reason is treated totally the opposite, even though it is water. It rains and doom and gloom befalls us. Please let us not wake up to the sound of rain falling. Oh yeah, the start to a great day. Instead of joyfully frolicking through the rain, we run as if it’s going to melt the skin away from us, exposing our flesh…..we can’t have that….so we run, not wanting the rain, uh water, to get us any wetter than what we have already become. Here’s one, you get caught in a downpour without your umbrella….on you’re way to work….upon arrival, for some reason, you get all kinds of —oh my gosh, just look at you dripping water all over the place, you need to do something about that. to the, awwww…..here, get out of that wet jacket, here’s a towel— look. Isn’t it the same liquid we encounter in our everyday life? Sure we receive in a different way…..I mean it is falling from the clouds up above us, which I guess is compounding the situation somehow. Let’s see, we have cloudy skies which seem to put us in a foul mood anyway, coupled with rain, falling from the those clouds, causing the mood from the clouds to be heightened even more….yeah, that’s about it. But the fact still remains that it is the same liquid we enjoy at the beach, in our backyards and at the the water parks….but we won’t wash our clothes, nor will we wash our dishes in it. We won’t use it to brush our teeth or to bathe…..but it’s the same, a liquid……rain/water.  So there should be no reason for us to be in bad moods when it rains……except that…..the sun isn’t shining when it’s raining water…. *sigh*

Darcel, this is dedicated you sweetie, love you

Men and Tears

I’m kinda curious how this will turn out myself, but the thought came to me and it stuck.
Who can remember when  a man was not a man if he cried….show of hands please….nowadays , your not a man if you can’t show emotion. No wonder we’re confused. But seriously, the shedding of tears is not something that is shameful. Think of it as a cleansing. I’m not ashamed to admit that the flood gates have been opened from these eyes on several occasions, for many different reasons. But I can see why some guys don’t like to have a good one in a public setting because some of us have a hard time controlling it….for example, what if it called for maybe a, you know, a whimper but we begin to really get into it, we’ve got snot running out of our nose, face is contorted, our shoulders are hunching up and down….see?…this is why some of us don’t like to cry. So the next time you might be critical of a guy who just refuses to cry openly, he just might be doing everyone a favor.
