“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”― Bob Marley

    I was married to this woman for 30 years until God brought her home this past Feb. We had our problems and differences but we always found a way to overcome them.I lived the last 10 yrs.of her life as her sole caregiver,advocate,nurse,etc.,plus worked a full time job.
    I found such a vast richness and depth of love that I don’t believe I would know today had she not been I’ll.
    Blessings are everywhere and in all struggles, situations or what have you.
    Our marriage vows said ….til
    death do us part.We both lived up to that covenant not just to each other,but also to God.

    this is the most wonderful thing I read for a long, long time. While reading this, I was inbetween. Full of love and happiness. Finishing this reading, I felt sadness. Sadness, because I´m receiving much more,than giving. Because I spend all my time, and it is even too less. But I stay optimistic, I´m learning, I´ll become faster and smarter. There will be a little sucess every day for a big change in tomorrow. Giving love is never lost. I´ll give it back to you!

    Noonespecial,
    Wow very touching, things dreams are made of, upon reading something quite a while ago I realized what a fantastic talent you must have of putting words to paper. It brought me to a dream long ago when in college I wrote a treatment for my screen play. Homelessness and life got in the way and in a drunken fit of rage I ripped it up forgot my dreams and got on with life which is just so-so. Your words were so great and taught many things especially not to give up on your dreams I hope all yours come true, what ever they maybe. It a shame you give yourself that title as you words carry a completely different message, one of caring, compassion, greatness, strength and a beautiful heart, something to rare in today’s world, which only needs more of that. I put out an apology to hurting hearts in the hopes that anything I posted/wrote would help heal those who needed to heal. For me it worked backwards. After the most stressful days of my life 7-15 the next morning I finally after years put a pen to paper and and got several scenes to my movie done. I owe you more than you can imagine, your beautiful words of encouragement inspire beyond belief and can only define someone of inner and outer beauty. I dreamed of having a friend as you co-write with me and one day peddle the works at the film festivals. Although being anonymous that would be hard to do. Wishing one day for coffee and conversation and hearing your thoughts. A friend.

    Thank you dear friend, for all this nice words. Hahaha…no I really have no talent in writing..I have maybe some talent in drawing…but you know, this does not matter..interesse and hard work is enough to become happy…( just my experience)…Oh I didn´t understand….you wrote a treatment for a videogame to the subject: Homelessness?
    No I definetly not want to give up my dreams…if there is something really in my head/ heart…the is nearly no way to get rid of.
    Oh and don´t worry about the my name, I wanted to change already, I just don´t know,how…but it does not matter….
    You idea to “apology to hurting hearts in the hopes anything I posted/wrote would help heal those who needed to heal.” is a good thing! I would like to paticipe somewhere in future( perhaps better in illustration/ design than words? ) But I think we should first know each other better…important for me is, that there is no personal profit…so i´m looking forward to hear somthing from you….

    hahaha, o.k. Arlene, you got me. Well I already tried to fix the name in “lessons you learned”…does anybody knows, how I can change the name there…I really do not know, why there is written Steffi1970. Also it would be interessting, if the name changes in older posts, when I change the name.
