But since I have been doing/feeling neither of those two things in the past year or so I haven't written anything new. I think that is sad. Why should I need some guy in my life (or out of it...) to do something that I love and that motivates me so much.
And that is really my only complaint about living here right now... seriously. I love my house. Love my dogs, LOVE my alone time and the idea that I can do what I want, when I want, where I want. When I miss my family I call them on the phone. I see my dad twice a month and my mom once or twice a month when she comes down with him. My friends come down to visit and I speak to the kid every day and get to see her and her hubby this coming weekend.
I need to prime the pump, so to speak... do a little introspective thinking. Sit on the boards and embrace the ocean, feel the music of the sea.
That said, I have brought out some quotes from the book to share with the blogosphere. Quotes that make me think of Matt, and Mr. C and Johnny Famous. Megan and Mark... all those gone but not forgotten. Also since it's almost Spring, it's time for a little Spring cleaning - which this first quote is all about. Only instead of Spring cleaning the house, some of us need to clean out the closets of our hearts and minds...
This next one really touches me... even tho I wrote it. It is so important to make sure you tell those you love how you feel. It can't be said enough. God forbid I should pass away, I want my friends and my family, my daughter, to know exactly what they have meant to me. And i do it in different ways. I tell them in text, in person on facebook, in my blog. What is the point of feeling the way you do and not letting them know.
"So many of us put off for tomorrow those words we should say today. Hold with gentle hands those you love. Tell them how you feel and show them how important they are to you. So many times we feel, but don't show, our hearts content. Appreciate those in your life that make you smile, think, laugh and cry. They will not always be there and need to know how important they are to you." ~Stacey Charter
This one speaks for itself. It is probably the truest representation of me that I have ever written and I say it all in 2 simple sentences...

Thank you, as always, for taking the time to read what I write. Please leave a comment if you'd like or share it with your friends. You can click on the "Share this on facebook" link to do that as well. Get ready for some new stuff coming up... I feel it's about that time.
Wishing you all peace, love, and positive thoughts! ~Stacey
