Comforting words for me………..

After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.  You learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t mean security.  And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises and you begin to accept your defeats with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child.  And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is to uncertain.

After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much of it.  So you plant your own garden, and decorate your own soul instead of waiting  for someone to bring you flowers.  And you learn that you really can endure, you really are strong, and you really do have worth.  And you learn and you learn.  With every goodbye you learn.

    YEs, incredibly comforting….After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much of it. So you plant your own garden, and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure, you really are strong, and you really do have worth. And you learn and you learn. With every goodbye you learn…..incredibly incredibly comforting!
