She can hear the water dripping off in the distance. It's annoying but not what's keeping her awake. Lying in her bed, staring at the ceiling that she cannot see in the darkness, there is only one thought. Her heart hurts. Pressed for specifics, she couldn't tell you why. Things have been good recently. Work, school, and the kids have kept her busy, allowing her to use her mind on something other than the thoughts. She comes home and is physically and mentally exhausted. A hot shower soothes her and her cool sheets invite her to find the path to a restful night's sleep. She waits for the sleep to come. The water is still dripping. Her chest feels like it is constricting. The memories pour in. The doubt and the fear. She rolls over onto her left side, tucks her folded hands under her cheek. The first tear slides out of the corner of her eye, wetting the back of her hand. She has developed a rich fantasy life, one that removes her from her stark and lonely reality. But the nights come, the nights like this one, and the fantasies crumble inward, revealing the frantic little man pulling the strings. She knows it is all fake, but the confrontation is jarring, nonetheless. She curls her legs up to her chest and removes a hand from under her cheek, wrapping it around her knees. She hugs herself when there is no one else to perform the task. It doesn't help. The tears have brought on the snot. She snuffles it back, nearly choking on it. Her chest heaves. Her entire body shudders and she succumbs to the sobs. She reminds herself that it will soon be over, the pain. Once she has shed the needed amount of tears, the pain will be replaced with a dull ache. The ache is better than the pain. It is the sign that she is still alive, although she fails to see the positive side in that while in the middle of her crying spell. It is more than an hour before her sniffles dry up. Her eyes are itchy and the skin beneath them feels engorged with fluid. She knows the puffiness will be gone in the morning, if she can manage to get herself to fall asleep. Sleep. A way of escape. She begs it to come quickly. She claws with her mind and reaches into herself, calling out to it. It does not disappoint her. It is the only thing in her life that never has.

Our laughter rises higher The longer we're together Separately we're great Together, we are better It's hardly ever me It's mostly only us We cannot be separated Not with a plane, train, or bus I've always got her back And she's always got mine We're looking out for each other All the given time You could say we're friends The absolute best But she is my sister Compared to the rest And you might not understand us That just means we're being who we are Acting like retards, sisters at heart Whether we are by each others sides or far Partners in crime Sisters disguised as friends We'll always be that way Until the very end Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

PEOPLE COME INTO YOUR LIFE FOR A REASON People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on. Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.! LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
Best friends for life, that's You and I, Eternally blessed, every day that goes by. Sobbing through sad times, laughing through fun, Trusting each other, since our friendship begun. Fondest memories, of years gone by, Reassuringly, knowing, Our friendship wont die. In times of trouble, there's me and You, Each challenge arisen, we've made it through. Nights full of laughter, outweigh the tears, Never doubting each other no matter what. Stronger and stronger, Our friendship grows, For You my friend, my love overflows. Opposites attract, but we're two of a kind, Respect of the highest form, ever to find. Lucky and grateful, for the day that we met, It's a friendship so special. For lifetime it's set. Forever and always, right up 'til the end, Everlasting love and respect, for my best ever friend.
I understand that it isn't being a man, and that the "bad boys" out there make it hard for the good guys. Women seem so complex, so mysterious, so...difficult. You're always missing something, some little bit of nothing that you never knew she expected you to do. And here's an insider tip for you -- most of the time we never knew we expected you to do it either. Sometimes we just make it up as we go along. Here's a clue to all of you -- it's not about fancy dinners and spending lots of money. J-Lo wasn't lying when she said her love didn't cost a thing. What women really want is something you have in you at this very moment, something that won't even require you taking a single dime out of your wallet. They are little things you probably didn't realize make all the difference. And you can start doing them today. Let her know you're thinking of her. Call her sporadically during the day. Or send her little e-mails just to say you miss her. Or, as a friend of mine advised recently, leave a little note on her car windshield. We know you get busy and can't possibly do this constantly, but women take a lot from what you show us. It's the little things that make all the difference. Plan a special night. This goes along with letting her know you're thinking of her. As you are planning, you're imagining the look on her face when she sees what you've done. And it makes you happy to know how much it will mean to her. It doesn't even matter what the special night entails. Cook her dinner, light some candles, draw her a warm bath, pick up her favorite ice cream at the grocery store. (For the record, you can't go wrong with Ben and Jerry's!) Look into her eyes. Listen to her when she talks, really listen. When your eyes are diverted to the hot blonde at table four, we notice it and it irritates us. And eventually we shut up. (Or is that the point...?) Touch her. Hold her hand, give her sweet, soft kisses. Act as if you can't stop touching her. Let her know that it's not always about sex. If you're having sex, put her needs first. Little tip -- if you make sure she enjoys sex, she'll want to have it with you more often. Everyone wins. Be dependable. A man proving he can keep his word is a man proving he is someone you can trust. There are very few things in the early stages of a relationship more important than that. If you make a promise and don't keep it, that says to her, "I can't believe his promises." And it sticks for the life of the relationship. He's Just Not That Into You said it best. "Calling when you say you're going to is the very first brick in the house you are building of love and trust. If he can't lay this one stupid brick down, you ain't never gonna have a house, baby. And it's cold outside." Take things slowly. We know you want to rush to get us naked from the first date. That's part of being male. And we don't want to keep being a prude by constantly turning you down but the more you push the quicker we'll cave and, believe me, we're not ready to cave that early on. No matter what you think you're reading from our body language. So quit pushing things to the next stage and just enjoy what you have. The rest will come in time... Tell us we're beautiful. Compliment us. If you like something, say so. It gives us that inner glow that makes us even more beautiful. Last year I got all dressed up for a date, walked out, and my date said nothing. I tried to fish for a compliment. "How do I look?" I asked and he said, "Fine." I said, "Am I dressed okay for wherever it is we're going?" He said, "Actually, you're a little overdressed." I couldn't dig a compliment out of that guy with a shovel. Leerers on the street had more finesse than that guy. Surprise her with flowers. Yeah, I know. Flowers cost money. Heck, just pick a bunch from your neighbor's front stoop when she's not home. Or bring a little gift, something that lets her know you were thinking of her. A fifty-cent pack of gum can bring tears to a woman's eyes if it has some sort of significant meaning. That's all I have for now. There are probably more. Women, speak up -- What do you want from a man that I haven't covered here?
