VISTAS: An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects. A broad Mental View.
February 8

Your friendship is special
Like the flowers that bloom
Or when a butterfly emerges
From within its cocoon....

You remind me of that butterfly
Loving and free
Bright and colorful
For the world to see...

We will share the sunshine and rainbows
Sometimes, the rain and the snow
We'll stand together thru it
While the cold winds blow...

When the time is right
We won't stop to ask "why"
Our friendship will take flight
On the wings of a butterfly...

Does it matter if I cried today? That I wrapped myself in my own arms and held myself close to me, that the longing inside of me is so intense that I could scream from the pain that my heart fills with it's emptiness.

Going back 21 years, recalling the fear and the unknown to come, snow piled high and deep, a child becoming an adult, My son was born on this day and for that I am thankful for he truly has been the biggest blessing I have ever received. Happy Birthday Mat. I love you.

1998

A Birthday Wish to my son this day for he celebrates his 20th.

When I first knew of the life that grew inside of me I was scared. As the day approached of you coming arrival, I prayed. Then you were here. I struggled with my love and what was right, I fought so many factors. And when I knew the right thing was to leave you with another, I walked away. I watched your progress through life. The pride I have is unspeakable. God Blessed me with you. After years of being apart we have grown to know one another. Now again. I must learn to walk away, allow you to become the man you are.

Mathew, Know that I love you, Always have always will. Happy Birthday
