'Our FMily'

Postby TinaT » Mon Mar 13, 2006 5:45 pm

This was something that I came across when I was first diagnosed eight years ago and it somehow helped me to cope with the days ahead - but I didn't know how hard those days were really going to be. :cry:
Having been a member of this forum for only a short while - I realise that this is what she had found when she wrote it- 'the FMily that we call our friends' :)

"No matter the Limits" by Rita Shaw.

It is such a relief when you first find out
That the pain really does have a name,
And then you will ask (and everyone does),
Just where can I place all the blame?

No matter the limits, no matter the pain,
There's no evil, cruel "Master Plan".
It just simply happens. It just simply is.
You adapt, and you change what you can.

But even with knowing the best and the worst,
And the pitfall the future could hold,
You still have a choice, you quit or you fight
YOU determine the story that's told.

And every small step that we take, my dear friends,
Each battle that we slowly win,
Just credits the love and the caring we share
With the FMily that we call our Friends.

So thanks to you all for your friendship, love and support - and for brightening my days. :D -

Gentle hugs,
Tina :)

Everyone is wanted here.
The more the merrier!
Sometimes my mind wanders, sometimes it leaves altogether!
