    Just over a year ago,

    my husband had surgery for prostate cancer. The cancer ended up being more aggressive than intitially thought and was less than 1mm from spreading beyond the gland. It was removed just in time. One year later he is still cancer free and has recovered nearly completely. I am...

    I'm really thankful that there's someone who's

    willing to understand me and go through my bs. He never gave up on me even though I can be a ***** sometimes. I've pushed him bunch of times but he keeps on coming back. I just love this dude. He went through a lot of stuff for me but I can't give him what he deserve. Our...

    My friends give me emotional supports. My enemies teach me and polish me.

    Dealing with feeling low,

    isn't so bad, when I realize how pointless it is to be sad. Life is such a precious and fragile gift, and I didn't realize fully until the effects of my mistakes had blossomed into problems of their own. Silly, when you're young and the reject advice from those who have been...

    In the wee hours of morning,

    while the temperature outside hovered around -17F, I heard the eerily beautiful call of a bard owl just outside my window. I smiled from underneath my thick comforter and murmured, “Bless you, Nell,” just before falling back into a deep sleep.So, here’s my...

    I don't really complain much

    because I've been in many situations where I had nothing. no home, no family to help me, no friends, no money, nothing. So I've learned to love what I have and appreciate it for what it is. You never know when you might lose everything.

    I am thankful to my husband above all else.

    He gives me a really nice life but I've been hurt in the past and the consequences of that have been real defects in my character. For example I don't have a grade 1 to 12 education like most people do. I was either being physically or sexually abused at home during that time...

    So Incredibly Rich I Am

    Yesterday the top shelf and rail in my closet collapsed on me....with all 100 lbs of clothes and stuff on board! It was a catastrophe of epic proportions. A global eruption of devastation! It was all I could do to recover my wits when as I was backing out of the closet I...

    ...that some of those things I wished never

    came true. I'm thankful to the cosmos for the time lag between wishing and wish fulfilment. I am aware today that those things would have not made me any more happier than I am today. I am so glad that all our thoughts don't come true. *sarcasm sprinkled over some lines

    Met a great guy, had a glass of wine with him

    at his appartment. I never met someone who understands exactly what I am going through. I enjoyed his company and he made love to me exactly the way I like it without me telling him what I like. It was like we knew each other for a long time.
