I like to write short stories or a poem, I find that is a great way to reduce stress. My daughter Katy is the real writer with now three published books. I would like to think it is due to my many stories I told the kids growing up.
Some like me others hate me, but I am who I am. I try to hold my integrity high, when and where I have failed I do not hide it, when and where I have had success that too I hold up proudly, I am human, so short coming I do have, yet I live each day being just who I am. I try never to lie, for truth is the candle of integrity, I have been called many things in life, some no doubt true to the sayer, but I know who I am and God knows so the rest really doesn't matter so much. If I could make everyone my Friend then I would for no price can be placed on true friendship, if I can bring peace to someone else or help them along this life's road then I feel I have value. I try not to indulge in selfishness and have tried to give my life value by being a giver not a taker. I trust God, love him and am devoted to him. I have found love, lost it, and found it again, I faced pain and conquered it, I have overcome failures and move forward. I look back only to learn from it, I look forward to see where I am going. Though sometimes I forget to express it or say it I love my family, and my kids, too often we just expect them to know it. If I could be anything in this life, it would be to be a light, for in a light there is no darkness, to give love and forgiveness, to demonstrate faith and comparison, to up lift, not to tear down, to build not to destroy, but most of all just to be me.
Let me add, thank you for your votes and time reading my works. I wish each one was a five star story, but as in life few things are always at the place of perfection. Yet I strive to bring you a moment of thought and entertainment . So thank you, without you they are just words.
