|Thanksgiving Wishes From The Heart”
To my very, very dearest friend,
I am so very glad that you chose to befriend me; your kind friendship has been a delight to me, and I am always so grateful for your kindness, caring, support, and encouragement which has made me to feel so very much less alone.
I cannot thank you in near full measure for your following my diary entries, as your reading, and comments to them make my heart happy, and give me a sense of purpose that I had once thought lost.
You have continued to, ‘be there’, for me, even when I am somewhat less than pleasant; even when—in pain—I become withdrawn and in despair. I always know that I may rely upon your generosity, your strength, thoughtfulness, and consideration; even when you have been in pain or despair.
I hope so much for you to be well—completely, and thoroughly—yet, should you be in lesser pain, mental anguish, or hopelessness, I give thanks for any improvement, any cessation, any respite that you might experience.
I wish that you be safe and secure; surrounded by family members, best friends, and…pets (!), who love you for who you truly are, and who can bring a lasting joy to your life.
I wish that you be sustained, blessed, and ever kept safe and well by the Creator.
I wish you comfort; shelter that keeps you warm, and cool-enough, and that is filled with bright things that make you happy, and one that is decorated to suit your taste in both comfort and design.
I wish for you security, so that you might not know want. With all the finances necessary—plus some besides—to help you further enjoy what life has to offer.
I further wish you plenty, that your stores be full, with enough to have, and some to share.
I wish you long, pleasant days, free from disruption or worry; with time to think, to contemplate, to give thanks, and to have some very quiet, personal time to follow your talents, or to explore your dreams.
I wish for you a most, ‘natural’, fatigue at end of day, when a, ‘dreamy, soft, and easy’, feeling leads you to a bed of coolest quiet.
I wish for you nights of blessed, sweet repose, filled with wonderful dreams; and watched-over by gentle angels to keep you through the night.
I wish you wake each morning, fully refreshed, to meet the sparkle of the morning.
I wish so very much that your life is full of richness, meaning, and purpose; and that you feel a certain joy, and happiness in daily living.
I wish that you consider just how very, very special and wonderful you are. You are unique; there is NO one exactly quite like you in all the world.
Further, that there has never been one quite as wonderful as you, and that there will never BE one nearly as beautiful or as special as you.
You are truly, ‘one of a kind’, there are NO copies or substitutes.
I would wish you recognize more fully just how special you are; for YOU are HERE is this particular time and space.
I wish that you celebrate your uniqueness!
I wish for you the utter gladness that we have so many Rights and Freedoms so fully denied in much of the world.
I wish for you all these and more; I wish that—in this journey we call, ‘life’, that you find contentment AND a sense of lasting peace.
And please know that while we miles and miles apart, that you will always find some welcome space within my heart!
And should be able to draw-close with family members, friends, and pets, this holiday season, should you have plenty, I urge you to consider someone less fortunate than yourself: the elderly person, down the street who lives alone; the single parent with children fighting to make ends meet; or…if you can, to donate canned goods, paper goods, baby food, pet food, etc., to a local church’s food bank, even if you are not a member of that church.
Please recall that hunger and misery follows no faith, or other affiliation. It may (with other’s donations) help any number of people you will never know. Giving help—anonymously—is sometimes giving the best kind of help!
And please, please always know, my very dearest friends, just how very much I love you!
‘Happy, Happy, Holidays!’
|Sunday, July 22, 2012
Sometimes, it takes a tragedy, such as was most recently witnessed in Aurora, to horrow one, and make one question why ?,and--even--to be made a little afraid.
It also causes us to think, and to try to put things in perspective, and to realize what is important in life...and, what is not.
we especially think of those persons who are special, and a wonderful parts of our lives, and, how vey grateful we should be to have family, and friends who care for you, think of you, encourage you, and wish only the best for you.
For those of us without much in way of family, friendships take on even greater importance and meaning.
And so, my very, very dear friend, I want to say how very grateful I am to you that you wanted me as a friend; I thinki of you so very often, and want you to be ever safe, healthy, secure,pain-free, and happy.
I treasure your friendship for it has changed me, and I have come away the better for it.
Before you allowed to to be a part of your life, I was afraid, ill, and alone; since then, your kindness, and caring, your never wanting to hurt me, your acceptance of me with all my flaws, and your just 'being there' for me, and writing to me, with hugs, PM's, and reading my diary entries have made my life much richer, and more full; and makes my heart so very happy !
For I know that I can come to you when I am lonely, or in great pain, and...you will not turn me away, but, rather, often have even made me part of your wonderful family ( I sort of feel like old Uncle 'Zahc' !).
I know that may sound silly, but, its true. And I value you so much and thank you when you overlook my deficiencies, or my faults.
Never have you forsaken me, but have always been there to guide me, keep me ever-close to you as I--too--ever keep you in my heart.
For all that--and, for so, so so very much more, I thank you, my dearest friend, for everything you are, and, everything you have done. You constantly surprise me, delight me, make me think, and make me laugh, which helps to make the pain a lessened thing; and your kind company is always the best, and your continued welcoming is truly amazing. And I love you so very dearly for all that, and for so much more.
Sometimes is does take a sudden, and inexplicable tragedy to make us stop, and think. Our hearts go out to the innocent victims in Aurora.
My a kind, and also loving God sustain and comfort them...and you, my dearest, precious friend.
Please DO take care, and know I love you dearly ! 'Zahc'
Although we have not--as yet met--Sir, my name is 'Zahc', and I--for one, as truly sorry that your anger compells you to leave a group, once pledged to be of mutual support, and of welcome to suffering 'newbies'.
I must freely admit that I now rarely respond to threads, for one, because of late I have been so ill, second, because I had detected the beginnings of dreadful factions within the group, and thirdly,to it, I have but little in response...except--Sir--to say that all of us come here with differentmental, and physical problems, often, with advanced Anxiety Social Disorder, and with medication, and a makered tendency to be hypersensitive, as in sometimes over-reacting to imagined slights, resultin in a flurry of horrible PM's that do little to solve the problem.
Within any group, there will almost always be a few individuals with more dominent personalities, or Egos, if you prefer. And sometimes, those members who are more inclined to shyness will be overrun.
Please, Sir, do keep in mind that although there are listed 1411 members of this group, only four, five, or six who routinely speak out more.
Often, this occursm because some members apparently 'bond' with other members well beyond the intended purpose, or scope of the group, and while the occasional, 'outside' frinedship bears no ill, loyalties do become divided.
Honestly, 'fehrbehr', a group this large should have at command, a sterner 'GL', to wade in, wherever necessary to impose sanctions-if deemed needed--until tempers cool,and the original import of the function of the group as helping, encouraging, strengthening ALL who may be in need, certainly 'newbies' should not have to exposed to errant infighting from a few, when the 'newbie's problems should be full attended to.
It should--in fact--be nothing less than our mandate to be 'here' for others in need.
And...I am so sorry to have to say, I had thought the squabbling had ceased, in light of group function, purpose in need. Neither--Sir--do I see much point in the way of secet 'Pm' battles, thought, certainly better there, and in private, than before so many--like myself--who cannot understand it. After all, we ARE adults here, or at least must function in an adult world.
I--too--must admit that my participation in the 'Agor' group to have declined, mostly due to my involvement with my diary entries, and natural dislike of contention. Should--perhaps--you not already be too angry, I would urge you to view my profile, and maybe scan a few of my diary entries, a, in the past, I have tried to address many issues such as PTSD; Bipolar I & II; hypersensitivity; depression, etc.
And I, for one, would sorrow from your up and leaving the group, as, when it is running like it should, as a well-oiled machine, with everyone in concert, it CAN be a most remarkable source of information, support; to be what is was truloy menat to be: a haven, free of cencure for its members, and a 'safe' place for newbies to find comraderie, and more normalcy in their lives.
And, even the loss of one, able member makes the more 'silent', though needy members ill at ease, less likely to visit threads that do contain valuable information, and most helpful resonses whenever, and wherever they are needed.
Meanwhile, I have the greatest of hopes that--like, little, wildfires-- the problem areas while just burn themselves out, sated from stirring up the 'shit pot', if you will please excuse my terminology.
And, certainly, Sir, while I cannot prevent you from leaving, your interests may be better served by not doing so in anger, and in giving up. 'fehrbehr', just think of what you--personally--have to contribute in lessoning a newbie's pain. Please think of them, if no one else.
Please think of me whatever you will, but if you can, please 'PM' me on how yu are doing. I look forward, Sir, to hearing from you, 'Zahc'
