Rainbow

Note:Repost

Good Morning All!  I had a revaltion at church yesterday about the situation I posted the other day about my man and female friend....My minister testified and her words touched my heart and made me realize that I am human....That I was in my thought process reverting back to my old way of thinking allowing doubt in my heart and my mind to play tricks on me...I am truthfully glad the two people that I love very much can be friends, thats important and will be more so when our relationship reaches other levels....I am ok now :)  and comfortable with my relationship and friendship with my very close friend.  I KNOW they would never do anything to hurt me...So I have let that jealousy go....

Well since its a nasty rainy day, I thought I would post this poem inspired by my daughter.

Life continuously throws us down bumpy roads
Pain takes over and implodes

We make mistakes over and over again
But we have to know when to say when

Learn how to overcome
Not allowing ourselves to succumb

To drama and dismay
Never being led astray

Once the rain clears
The beautiful rainbow appears

Note: This poem was inspired by my daughter Tanaesha, she came up with "No Rain, No Rainbow" This poem is to explain her phrase's purpose...

Knowing when to say "when" does not just apply to drinking and driving.

Thanks Kilauea, yes, I learn from my girls daily…They are so smart and make me see things that I didn’t realize…

Yes Dulce, the key is to actually learn from the mistake in order to prevent from making the same mistake…

Yea, I have to remind myself as well Meagan…Just cuz I write it doesn’t mean I remember at all times…

Thanks Paul, Yes there is a Rainbow at the end…The light at the end of the dark tunnel, making it all ok…
