    To Have Loved and Lost...

    As they say, is better than to have never loved at all. To which some say 'try it.' Well... I would not be the person I am today without the experiences that shape me, including having loved greatly - and lost that love. The feeling of having that love... is like none...

    It's A Feeling Of Natural Motivation...

    ...or SOMETHING like that. I am not in love right now and that makes it hard to define by memory. I am wondering if I'll get the feeling ever again, and that bothers me. There really is nothing to compare it to. For me, it's the longing to be together when apart. Anticipation...

    I lost my mom on this past Christmas Day very unexpectedly. I'm still in shock and angry. When things like this happen, I seriously lose more and more hope that there is a God.
