Now Is the Time

After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,

And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't mean security,

And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises

And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open,

With the grace of a woman,
Not the grief of a child

And you learn to build all your roads on today,
Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After awhile you learn that even sunshine
Burns if you get too much

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

And you learn that you really can endure...
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth,
and you learn and learn...
With every good bye you learn.

Facebook Phenomenon

I just have to say, I love Facebook so much. I love that I'm in contact with so many of my friends in one place. I love keeping in touch that way, I feel like I'm more involved in their lives (and they in mine).

I love being so connected to so many people, even if it's only in a virtual environment.

I love being able to share pictures and bits and pieces of my life with other people.

I know this sounds like a blatant sell-out ad for Facebook, but I don't care. I am so grateful to that website for helping me have a social life, which is important to a full-time-working mom who can't get out to meet people in person nearly as much as she wants.
