People I love

Encouraged by friends...

Haven't done much writing lately as I said earlier,
haven't felt motivated in that particular direction.
I tend t live by the rule
 " if you can't say something nice don't say anything"
Doesn't mean I don't hear or see what is going on , just that I choose
to moderate my reactions.
I have missed writing though, and friends have encouraged me to get out of my cave and come play again.
So here is my piece for this weeks 


If our eyes are the windows to our souls
Then the eyes of a friend are a mirror.

If I behave badly, they show me the ugliness within.
Yet, if I am feeling worthless, they shine
and highlight the many facets to my being.

Stepping through the eyes of my friend
I can journey into a Wonderland,
where bright colours sparkle with life,
escaping the grey of my own world for 
moments of joy.

Through the eyes of my friend I can find myself
when I feel lost, alone and anxious.
They pierce the gloom to light my way.

Through the eyes of my friend I can see the Me
that others see...
Maybe they can teach me
 to be a better friend to Me.

Thank you.

  5. These warmed me soul and bones. For I know and feel that few things are as wonderfully miraculous as a good friend... a person who reminds us we are great and keep us from doing not so great things. Mirrors, indeed... because a great friends love us like we should love ourselves.

    This is so beautiful, Gina. Sooo glad you are again!

  8. A great way to express your thoughts and feelings Gina, we always need to be a friend to ourselves but there is nothing nicer than a close friend to bring us warmth and support. It looks like our hibernation period is coming to an end with the longer days and a little touch of the sun peeking through on slightly warmer days. Spring is on the way xxx
