A butterfly hovers closely

A butterfly hovers closely
A butterfly hovers closely And then quickly moves away, Swiftly going where so ever Her heart may freely say. A butterfly lowers and rises With the winds’ gusty breath, As if coupled within a dance Of a loving tenderness. The butterfly only knows How it feels to have wings, To kiss the petals of flowers In such elegant flutterings. To have but one moment Of such an exquisite flight, Would be like a dream Where all seems so right. Author Unknown

With Hope by Steven Curtis Chapman

This song really helped me get through a lot of moments of grief when my mom passed away in January 2008. I have often shared this song with others. I noticed it wasn’t on You Tube with lyrics and photos, so I made it myself to share with the world. This is dedicated to all those people out there who are distraught.

Do not let anyone judge you, or underestimate what you are going through.

Do not let anyone judge
Do not let anyone judge you, or underestimate what you are going through.
They cannot understand the Storms inside your soul.
It is okay to cry, grieve, hurt and FEEL.
Feeling is Healing.
How can you heal what you refuse to confront.
Melt downs are okay. Crying when you need to is okay.
Needing to be held and comforted is okay.
It doesn’t mean you are weak or selfish.
It means you are Strong enough to accept and acknowledge what you feel.
Feel what you need to. Let the Storm pass, and breathe in the purity of Courage.
The knowing that you CAN cope with this.
Everything will be okay. You CAN you do it and you WILL.
Life is full of Miracles. Never give up hope and believing in all the goodness that is there.
Hold to that thought – Think Positive – and you will see your whole Life begin to change.
Be Strong Beautiful.
Just because it’s Stormy Now;
Doesn’t mean you’re not headed for Sunshine ♥

She hurts and she cry’s

she-hurts-and-she-crys
She hurts and she cry’s But you can’s see the GRIEF In her eyes because she just smiles.
