Good morning world. Its a lovely Sunday and it is so wet outside. It rained all last night and now everything is just so cool and soaked with life. Got up early this morning as I couldn't seem to lay in bed any longer. It must have been the fact I went to bed really early last night out of pure exhaustion. My emotions were so strong last night after talking to my sweetie that I just couldn't stay AWAKE. I think a part of that is the Holidays are coming up and to be honest, I am not looking forward to them. Just the fact being away from somebody I care about hurts alot and it always seems to effect me so much when I have had little sleep. The holidays just won't seem the same to me. But, I have to some how put my smile on for the kids sake. I want them to have a good one so I suppose I will have to push my own feelings down for awhile for their sake.

Anyway, got up this morning and checked my email as usual. Frankly, I am tired of getting emails from people that tell you to send this out to five people or bad things will happen. Who believes in that crap? I am sorry, but nothing happens if you do or don't send out friggin chain letters. Get over it people. Stop sending it to those who don't want it. Stop sending them to me.But, I will say this, the one today was a little different. The message of it happens to be very true and I have always believed in living your life for today and not putting things off. Because really, we don't know what is around the corner and would just be so devastating if our lives came to an end and we did not do the things that make us happy because we put them off. So, instead of sending them to people who may not want them in their emails, I am posting it here. Of course I am deleting the part where it tells you to send it to 10 other people or else. I don't expect people to have to do that. Anyway, it makes ya think about life..............enjoy!!!!!!!!!!

I believe whatever is in store for us will be for us.

The poem is very true, unfortunately. Make sure you read the poem!

CASE 1: Kelly Sedey had one wish, for her boyfriend of three years, David Marsden, to propose to her. Then one day when she was outto lunch David proposed! She accepted, but then had to leave because she had a meeting in 20 min. When she got to her office, she noticed on her computer she had some-email's. She checked it, the usual stuff from her friends, but then she saw one that she had never gotten before It was this poem. She simply deleted it without even reading all of it. BIG MISTAKE! Later that evening, she received a phone call from the police It was about DAVID! He had been in an accident with an 18 wheeler. He didn't survive!
CASE 2: Take Katie Robinson She received this poem and being the believer that she was she sent it to a few of her friends but didn't have enough e-mail addresses to send out the full 5 that you must. Three days later, Katie went to a masquerade ball.Later that night when she left to get to her car, she was killed in that spot by a hit-and-run drunk driver.
CASE 3: Richard S. Willis sent this poem out within 45 minutes of reading it. Not even 4 hours later walking along the street to his new job interview with a really big company. When he ran into Cynthia Bell,his secret love for 5 years. Cynthia came up to him>and told him of her passionate crush on him that she had had for 2 years. Three days later, he proposed to her and they got married. Cynthia and Richard are still married with three children, happy as ever!
This is the poem

Around the corner I have a friend,
In this great city that has no end,
Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,
And before I know it, a year is gone.
And I never see my old friends face,
For life is a swift and terrible race,
He knows I like him just as well,
As in the days when I rang his bell.
And he rang mine but we were younger
then, And now we are busy, tired men.
Tired of playing a foolish game,
Tired of trying to make a name.
"Tomorrow" I say! "I will call on Jim
Just to show that I'm thinking of him."
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Around the corner, yet miles away,
"Here's a telegram sir," "Jim died today."
And that's what we get and deserve in the end.
Around the corner, a vanished friend.
Remember to always say what you mean.
If you love someone, tell them.
Don't be afraid to express yourself.
Reach out and tell someone what they mean to you.
Because when you decide that it is the right time it might be too late.
Seize the day.
Never have regrets.
And most importantly, stay close to your friends and family, for they have helped make you the person that you are today. *NOTE*>> the more people that you send this to,the better luck you will have. SMILE, even through your tears!!!!!
Take care all, you are loved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
