for good..........

it's not often in our lives that we meet people who change us drastically and irrevocably. happy birthday to one of the few people in my life who completely changed me.

(why is it that my life seems to be so tied up with scorpios, anyway??)

I've heard it said

That people come into our lives for a reason

Bringing something we must learn

And we are led

To those who help us most to grow

If we let them

And we help them in return

Well, I don't know if I believe that's true

But I know I'm who I am today

Because I knew you

Like a comet pulled from orbit

As it passes a sun

Like a stream that meets a boulder

Halfway through the wood

Who can say if I've been changed for the better?

But because I knew you

I have been changed for good

It well may beThat we will never meet again

In this lifetime

So let me say before we part

So much of me

Is made of what I learned from you

You'll be with me

Like a handprint on my heart

And now whatever way our stories end

I know you have re-written mine

By being my friend...

Like a ship blown from its mooring

By a wind off the sea

Like a seed dropped by a skybird

In a distant wood

Who can say if I've been changed for the better?

But because I knew you

I have been changed for good

good things come to those who wait

because it's "that time of year".....fall allergies and the heat is on.....i have a raging headache and just don't have what it takes to write a proper blog and to say all that i could and *should* say about my trip to chattanooga over the weekend to see the edgar winter band. then again....maybe not much really needs to be said. all you really need to know is that i've been a fan since i was a young teen, and have had a working relationship with edgar for 2-3 years, so the fact that i finally got to meet him face to face was just beyond wonderful. he's as gracious and kind in person as i expected, and i got the extra treat of the fact that all his band members and crew are just as gracious and kind as he! we had some snafus in our weekend trip, but everything worked for the best and i'm so thankful that i had the opportunity to make the trip and meet everyone! i feel very blessed.......no! i AM very blessed! :)
