It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.
Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."
The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.

The Person He Thought I Was
It seems like Two years .
Then I think that it will be Ten and then Twenty and so on and he won't be back.
If it were not the knowing that people endure this everywhere, every day , always ... I would just lie down and not get up.
But they did it. They got up. They ate and worked and talked and lived.
My husband loved me.
He always thought of me and what made me happy.
He did his best, all the years we were married, to make me happy. To show his love for me .
I will honor him and show my love by not turning into some wimp that he would not have liked, some crybaby that would have made him cringe, some weak person that he never would have been interested in.
He used to say he admired me, he thought I was smart, he loved me.
I will remember that.
I will remember everything and I will be the person he thought I was .
