I'll tell you a little about myself on this page, but I'll try not to bore you. ;)
I've been disabled since 1999 due to several ongoing health problems, so I am a stay-at-home wife and "mom.* (No human children in the house, just furkids!)
I'm a type A personality and incredibly sensitive..
I'm a perfectionist and I'll work toward my goal in anything I'm trying to achieve without easily giving up.
I'm a fairly good judge of character - usually if I think someone is, they are, and if I think someone isn't, they aren't. (Did you understand all that? *grin*) I learned long ago, however, to never judge someone by first impressions. (Did I just contradict myself??)
I love all animals and loathe the person who willfully harms an animal in any way.
I'm grateful for the deep emotions that stir my heart and for having the unique ability to place myself in someone else's shoes.
I am satisfied with ME!

As you pass from page to page here, it will soon become apparent that I really love lilacs and roses, the color purple, hearts, and animals!

Survivor of Depression
Today the sun returned to my sky
In a long forgotten splendor of light
Presenting me once more with time
Replacing lethargy with lustful fight
The light had been stolen callously
Darkness swallowed my spirit whole
Endless nights without stars or moon
Had gripped and held my very soul
Time meant nothing but an eternal need
To silently implode with my own misery
Screaming inside but to others it seemed
I languished in a bland kind of apathy
Then the sun returned to greet me today
Painting colors so bright it hurt my eyes
Furnishing my world with time once again
Hope fluttered inside like lost butterflies
Night shares its place once more with the day
My spirit once weary embraces the light
The embers of depression are dying away
Cooled by the wings of my soul in flight.
