4 Voices In The Darkness:

What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Making a stranger believe in the kindness of others after so many years of consistant bad treatment at their hands. Convincing a woman hundreds of miles away that not all people are a waste of time. Big acheivement Wookie. Several people tried for years to do this and you accomplished it with a few insightful moments and the kindness it took to stop and type it out. You showed a soul to someone who, dishearteningly, believed there was no such thing.


Name 3 things you like about yourself:
I make people laugh. I make a good friend. Um... Thats about it. Sorry.
I want to add to this....
I take the time to stop and reflect on what I am, where I am, who I am.
I am extremely intelligent. Id make a perfect partner to someone who had the same ideals and strength.
I take care of everyone, and sometimes in the process, I forget myself.
I am selfless
I am genuine and honest.
Id do anything to help a friend.


Those are some great things about yourself. Sometimes they might not seem so great. But I try to imagine what people will say about me when Im gone. If they can say half of what I like about you, about me, then I die satisfied with my life. Thats not to be morbid in your new years celebration. Its just the simple truth.

Your honesty and kindness did a lot for me in 2004. At the hardest point in my recent life, I turned to random blogging to keep my mind, and my phone (dial up) busy....and I found you. You were part of a year long Xmas gift for me. I'll never forget it.

You seem to be very hard on yourself...yet, you always bring strength to everyone else and shed some light on our blogs when we are feeling dark...

I think maybe your strength and ability to see things in a few different perspectives should be noted also...
