fresh air...

a breath of fresh air is...

*having a conversation with someone new and knowing my smile is genuine all through and even minutes after.

*knowing no matter how much i digress, my family is standing in the same spot where i left and waiting patiently for me, with more love than i left behind.

*the kisses of my nieces, their giggles and young minds working at conversations, their 'i love yous' and hugs and questions of 'why do you love me so much?'

*lying in the arms of mom, as she strokes my fevered head and comforts my troubled mind

*laughter, pure unadulterated laughter from wherever i can get...family, friends foe.

*pictures that say a thousand words, that moves my heart in the direction of my head, thus producing sense. pictures that captures the moments my hearts eyes have seen and remained opened for. pictures that in one glance sums up what my life used to be about giving me a reason to be thankful for the now that i have. its this picture...

*reading a good book,a book that keeps my toes tingling with excitement.

*music...music that transports the soul to thousands of miles beyond where our body dares.

*spending and knowing i deserve to, no guilt, no surrender...bliss!

*stepping out of the spa, feeling all refreshed and rejuvenated and....

*basking in a little fantasy

*sneaking out and wearing big sis T's stuff when shes been so mean to me, and knowing she'll never know cos she has so much and just wouldn't share even though she doesn't wear...blast!

*finding that one person...the one who translates as the ONE.

*Gods word breathed upon me

*....living, breathing...life....

  31. *bawling* THE PICTURE REFUSED TO OPEN ON MY SYSTEM!
    beautifully written FQ, fresh air is a lot of these things for me too.

    the only time my mum "strokes" my hair now is when she's loosening my braids or weaves(after mucho begging)! what can i say, she's just not touchy-feely...lol
