Thanks to Everyone

Hi Everyone!

  Thanks so much for reading my journal, and for leaving such wonderful, and heart-warming comments.  Also, thanks for all the great E-mails I've received!.....i feel so blessed to know you .....all of you out there in computer-land! 

 Jimmy has all the residents reading my journal  (especially the one AOL featured in "flirts and friends"......"The First Visit."  I am happy for them to read it.....Also, I did reveal a lot of my life before I met Jimmy, which is a good purging out for me....As Jimmy is in Rehab now, this is his time to be purged out of all negativities, and to learn to understand himself, become a better individual in this world....it is a most definite learning experience, and I'm glad he is going through it, as well as myself....

  As I've said, Talbot Hall is a wonderful place!!.............It is full of positive energy!....It has a clean-wholesome feeling to it!   When you walk up the steps, and into the sparkling clean glass doors, you feel wonderful....as if a "spiritual feeling has hit you."...And the cleanliness is astonishing!...Everything sparkles and is glistening, and the clean, fresh smell of disinfectants is in the air!...What a wonderful place to be in!...I'm so happy Jimmy is there!

  Well, I have 2 more pieces of good-news for you today!...First is that Jimmy passed his next evaluation today again, and he did very well!........It won't be long now, that he'll be going to a Half-way House.

  Second, is that yesterday, I got 3 Haiku's (Poems), published in the local newspaper.  It was around 9pm at night when I first opened the paper, and was shocked as they were there starring in my face!.....I'll write them here for you.....I wrote these last Autumn, when I would walk outside, and talk to the trees...Our home is on a circle, with lots of trees and park-benches...(it is located in what was once a forest....so it is very pretty and inspirational here).  Anyhow, my lonliness, and missing my husband, led me to write haiku's and poetry...............In these haiku's, I become one with nature.....Isoothe, and feel soothed by nature.  

  

                               Fran's Haiku's

#1.......................Tranquil is the day,

                         Peace, harmony, and balance,

                          Lord, show me the way.

 

#2. .....................Your leaves turn orange,

                         My beautiful maple tree.

                         Summer is over.

 

#3...................... So still is the lake.

                          All is peaceful and perfect.

                          Balanced is my soul.

                          (all 3 are copyrighted...2003)

(I hope everyone remembers from their high-school days, that a Haiku has in the first line, 5 syllables, the second line has7 syllables, and the third line has 5 syllables).  A haiku is most often about nature, but can be about anything.  It often helps to look at nature, and if you can't be there with nature, looking at a picture will help you!....Why not try writing one yourself!...If you do, leave it in my comments, for everyone to see and enjoy!..........................................FRAN
