    The Reasons Why.

    When I was battling the toughest year of my life (thus far) people were there for me. I couldn't have made it alone. I was dying. Little by little, my world was ending. The despair, the agony of being so lost ate at me. It was destroying my spirit. It had shattered my hopes, my...

    I Will Always, Always Offer a Shoulder to Cry On

    It's Part of Me

    I think I do have some compassion within me. I know for a fact that I am passionate, but I'm sure I have at least a little compassion too. :-) I value it in others, so much! A compassionate person is someone I'd like to hang around, all the time! Heehee! I think they...
