"One compassionate word, action, or thought can reduce another person's suffering and bring him joy. One word can give comfort and confidence, destroy doubt, help someone avoid a mistake, reconcile a conflict or open the door to liberation. One action can save a person's life or help him take advantage of a rare opportunity. One thought can do the same, because thoughts always lead to words and actions. Within compassion in our heart, every thought, word and deed can bring about a miracle."~Thich Nhat Hanh

This was given to me today and it expresses more eloquently than I ever could, just how all of you have touched my life. Your words have helped in ways that can be called miraculous. I am so thankful to all of you who have taken the time to pass on your words to give me hope.

Thank you to the person who gave this quote to me, understanding that it spoke the words that I could not express half so well. Hugs to you.

I hung the porch swing today. It's been very sad. It is very hard to lift the whole porch swing. It reminded me of the glaring one-ness of myself. I was two for such a long time. It is exhausting being one, all the things that are so much easier done by two. Let's just face it, everything is easier with two.

I was able to hang the porch swing as one and I guess that is the metaphor for my life. I will go on as one but there is a gaping chasm where two should be. It seems unfair to know that I have to go on and will but the pain remains the same.

That's beautiful Steely. It may have been difficult for one to assemble but it would be easy for one to topple the whole thing to the ground. I've always wondered if swings like that were sturdy enough to hold me. I fear something like that would crash to the ground with me in it. It is very beautiful.

Thank you, it will hold me, it would most likely hold you. I'm a big girl. I was always nervous about sitting in it with someone. Harold always wanted me to but I was afraid it would crash with both of us, 600 pounds or so. It's hooked to the 2x4's that hold the porch up so the whole porch would have to come down. Of course I am a really big girl, LOL.

LOL I doubt you could tear down a whole PORCH. I was more skeptical about the chains and the metal. I figured it might be fine for a while but one day one of the links would give way and Kablam! I'm sprawled there on the ground struggling to rise while apologizing profusely for destroying my neighbor's swing.

You come visit anytime and we'll put you on that swing. I'll even get on it with you, if it breaks we'll just laugh, if we don't break a bone that is!

Steely -

I have been following this thread, biding my time in replying after a brief entry (above.)

It's nearly 2 am. Mrs Ho Ho is sleeping peacefully, but I seem to be a bit fitful tonight, so am chasing after sleep with a bit of yogurt and e-mail.

I decided to respond to your post, and the picture of your beautiful porch swing, because the idea is so close to the bench and trees that Mrs Ho Ho and I have on the grounds of my old university. It is part of a scholarship program, but it is our place too, in a very special way. I'm sure that, of all the places we have been, have lived, have visited, this will be the one that one of us will return to, alone, after the other has passed.

Alone, but not really alone. She or I will be accompanied by the memories and the love, always alive, in our hearts. We have shaped our relationship over many years, but the relationship has shaped us too. Each of us is, in a sense, a monument to that sculpturing and that will not be lost. Each of us may sense a touch, on the shoulder, or the hand, and imagine that we hear remembered words and phrases as the wind moves through the trees.

I have no idea what remains of us, beyond what I have just written. But I still feel that your husband is very proud of you, just as I will be of Mrs Ho Ho. He will be proud of you for handling your life as you have, and for hanging that swing.

Swing away, Steely, until your heart finds ease. Swing away, and you may feel that touch, or hear those words in the wind.

Oh Mr Ho Ho, I appreciate your words so much. I can't really find the words at the moment to express that but I hope you know that I do. When the tears stop I will try my best to tell you.


I have been touched by grace with this thread. I can not tell all of you how much you have meant to me. The words of kindness, hope and support. I stand all amazed at the love that you all have given to me. I do not know what I would have done without your support. The words are inadequate to express how deeply I have been changed and transformed by the generosity of your spirits. I have been blessed and I am so grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Steely -

It was very late last night when I posted that reply to you. I meant every word of it - the heart tends to be most open in the wee hours - but it may explain why I blundered into a restricted forum, where males should rightly fear to tread. I just want to add a small comment to the previous and then I leave this forum to it's rightful inhabitants.

I had a pretty miserable childhood, filled with many emotional and physical issues. (Not too unusual - that description would fit many kids.) In my adult life, I've sometimes wished that I could go back to that little fellow - the former 'me' - and whisper that everything will turn out fine in the end. But of course the paradoxes of time travel would suggest that would not be a good idea, even if possible.

The alternative is to support people I meet (or am related to) who are not as far along their pathways as I am along mine, offering such resources as are appropriate.

However, I am sometimes as anxious about my own future path now as my child-self was then. I can't whisper to my older self that things will be fine; all I can do is continue to learn from life - mine and the lives of others - and try to be prepared for what is surely to come. While I come here to read your story (and the stories of others) and to sympathize, I am really here to learn from you. There are many of you (yourself included) who, while much younger than I am, seem to me to be more emotionally mature. The mentors I had when I was younger have now passed on (though the lessons they taught me are still very much a part of me.) While they are gone, my need for mentors still persists. I hope I can comfort you, but know also that I am learning from you.

I am not here to mourn and can only hope that my presence here is not entirely inappropriate. I thank you (all of you) from the bottom of my heart for sharing as much and as deeply as you have.

I can relate... I lost my boyfriend In June 08 Suddenly..
It's life changing and I will never be the same.
No one escapes life without scars
and I can't imagine a better person to carry a scar for.
So I treasure it, It's proof I loved deeply at least once.


True


P.s. we will never be the same and that is perfectly okay.

I just wanted to drop back in and tell everyone that I did get the job. I'm going to be alright. My life seems to be moving forward and want to thank all of you for kind thoughts, wishes and prayers. I couldn't have come this far without all of you.
