    I can't take the credit for this, I don't know it's origin I was emailed it, but I think it is worth sharing, the first time I read it it brought tears to my eyes.



    What Every Person Needs ...

    What we all need as human beings
    is really, just
    one single person
    to be absolutely on our side.

    Someone who has faith in us,
    someone to really love us as we are,
    no questions asked,
    without reservations
    or judgements of any kind;

    Just a single person
    who will always be there
    to help us, protect us;

    To inspire us, applaud us
    when we have succeeded in something,
    no matter how insignificant
    it may seem to an outsider;

    Someone who will encourage us
    to strive towards
    the best we can possibly be,
    and always, always cheer us on;

    Someone who cannot ever be tempted away
    by youth, beauty, money, bribes
    and will always choose us,
    every day, each moment afresh;
    someone to stand by us
    when everything falls apart,
    who will love us no matter what;

    Someone who will never let us down,
    never give up on us,
    never leave us
    and who will always, always
    be fiercely and actively loving of us
    in every way, every day,
    until we take our last breath in physicality.

    Well, that person is here.

    It is you.

    Praprika - that's lovely.

    Here's one I sent my partner (I got it off a website - not my words, although my sentiments!)


    If I could have just one wish,
    I would wish to wake up everyday
    to the sound of your breath on my neck,
    the warmth of your lips on my lips,
    the touch of your fingers on my skin,
    and the feel of your heart beating with mine...
    Knowing that I could never find that feeling
    with anyone other than you.

    Hi Mini, that was a lovely post, while I was reading it I was thinking "only a mother could be like that" and then I came to the end and it made me feel so much better cos I interpreted it that we have to be our own best friends, so that is what I can now say to myself!

    Hi Matty,


    Paprika posted that lovely poem and it is so poignant just now for you and for so many of us including me:)

    We waste so much time looking for affirmation from others yet not realizing that most are probably just like ourselves searching for the same.

    I feel when you come back into your own body, space and time and claim your right to be here just as you are the possibilities become endless.

    Hope today is a little better for you.

    Hugs and love,

    Love Mini xxx
