Happy Anniversary

Happy belated 7th wedding anniversary to my love, best friend, soul mate, and husband Billy.

Happy National Dog Day

I’m SO happy that we now have a special day to recognize our four-legged furry family.

Wow! I REALLY needed to read this right now. I have been struggling with an all-consuming and suffocating guilt which literally takes my breath away at times.

Still even more of those feelings continue to rise out of situations over which I have no control.

My anxiety and depression are at an all-time high and the panic attacks that I managed to control for years have returned with a vengeance.

If I could drill the words of this quote into my heart and mind, perhaps I could over-power and move past the pain which haunts my heart and tortures my mind.

It means that I do not expect perfection from you, just as you donโ€™t expect it from me. โ€˜I Love Youโ€™ means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you when you are in a bad mood or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you are down, not just when youโ€™re fun to be with.

โ€˜I LOVE YOUโ€™ means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return only that you do not judge me for mine. It means that I care enough not to let you go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting andโ€ฆ
