Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the window which hope has opened.--Charles Spurgeon

Today was a bit of a rough day; it was a long, long day.

I read the blog of a friend today and it moved me to tears. I'm not talking about a single tear or just watery eyes - I mean tears flowing. Her words were that powerful and completely totally full of meaning. It honestly felt like she'd plucked some of the words right out of my head and allowed my emotions to breathe. Which leads me to the topic of my post....

v. wait·ed, wait·ing, waits
a. To remain or rest in expectation: waiting for the guests to arrive. See Synonyms at stay
b. To tarry until another catches up.
2. To remain or be in readiness: lunch waiting on the table.
3. To remain temporarily neglected, unattended to, or postponed:
4. To work as a waiter or waitress.

It should also say that it's a horrible and nasty word. Completely and absolutely assinine. Wait should be added about the 4-letter words that are considered "naughty".

I used to be one of those people - ya know those people, who because they didn't know what else to say, would make all the wrong comments (it'll happen, relax, you're concentrating on it too much...) not knowing how hurtful they are without even meaning to be. I'm more mindful of my words now. Much more.


It's not good in combination with wait. They are like oil and water and should not (and most often can not) be mixed.

Hope. v.
1. To wish for something with expectation of its fulfillment
2. A wish or desire accompanied by confident expectation of its fulfillment
3. To look forward to with confidence or expectation

This is one of those good 4-lettered words. It instills a goodness in your mind of something that is essentially pure.

I know that there are alot of people pulling for us and I'm pulling for others who I know that are in the same boat as us.

I just want to thank my friend - you have put into words feelings that I couldn't articulate -- and that I am glad that we have become friends. I am glad that you have welcomed me into your life and have become part of my support "circle" (and I hope that I have become part of yours as well...)

I think I will log off at this point and go to bed, feeling more relaxed and at peace.
