Well, I'm going through a bunch of junk...started it last night. I've sorted almost all of my craft supplies and am working on finishing cleaning up in my office. Mostly, I have to finish sorting through old magazines...I don't know why I even bother if they weren't important enough to set aside for safe keeping in the first place... I did find some more of the stuff I wrote early last year when some of my extended family was more than just a little disheartening and discouraging to me...as I look back, I can actually see and feel how I've grown since then, even though it's not been that long ago...

CRITICAL CARE
Who am I and do you really care?
You should know--all my life you've been there!
But you often don't seem to "like what you see"...
At least that's what it feels like to me.

Any sparkle I get in my eye
Seems to give you reason to make me cry...
It seems like you don't want me to be happy at all.
Or, at least, that's what the things you say reflect when I call.

I'd love to spend more time with you, to talk, to share.
But when it comes to things I enjoy, it's obvious you don't really care.
You turn up your nose or make some snide remark,
Not seeming to care whether or not you break my heart.

Nothing I do ever seems to be good enough--
As if the world, on me, hasn't already been tough enough!
I'd like to feel from you love and support,
But instead I feel like I'm on trial in some outrageous court!

So, it seems easier to me
Not to share anything important with you that makes me happy.
If I want to enjoy it without being afraid of losing
Something I love just because it wasn't of your choosing!

Well, back to the sorting...hopefully I'll be done in an hour or so. We're planning on getting the Christmas tree set up after church tonight. We were going to do it yesterday, but the girls didn't get done with the chores they have to do first...they weren't happy, but I don't like it that it looks as though Toys R Us exploded all over their room!!!! LOL
