Thank you, to all of you past and present

Those who know me, know that I say thank you often, I hope they have gotten used to it by now – if you don’t know me that well… I say thank you LOTS and I mean it from the bottom of my heart each time.

In my life I have known both good and bad people, each have taught me lessons in life, in love, in friendship and in being, through the rough times they carried me and through the happy times they carried me as well. I value true friendship and kindness beyond words.

So to all of you past and present, those who know me in person and those who I am yet to meet, I want to thank you for being you, who you are to me, your kindness and your spirit, for helping me, teaching me, bearing with me and for not publicly strangling me, for all the laughter, laughing till I cry, humour and wisdom, for everything, I thank you!

I really am soppy aren’t I – deal with it

Not normally a Celine Dion fan (R don’t smack me please I beg you, don’t do it!) but like all artists she definitely has some gems and this is one of them…

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
And never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through, through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
The light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ’cause you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

  1. Just finished a good sob. Yes, that’s one of my faves too. It shows the power of support and believing in each other – the transcendental quality that the kind of love that won’t let go can have. The faith in the highest and best in people. That belief in the divine spark within someone that can transform coal into diamonds.

    Yes, great song. Nice post.

    And thank YOU too,

  3. Thanks right back; for being you; for being open to the world around you; for hanging in there, even when it was by a thread, to come out on the other side stronger and healthier; thanks for all that you are doing around the world with your words of hope and healing. And, in response to your thank you: anytime, friend…….hugs!!! V.
