About an email...

(I wrote this late at night, I hope no one takes it too personally.)

So I got an email tonight that said this...

There comes a point in your life when you realize
who matters,
who never did,
who won't anymore...
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

I am sure you've gotten this email poem before and will probably again from someone.

If you had read my blog two weeks ago you would know I am realllllly good at worrying about stupid things that end up being no big deal. (This is where Matt chimes in with "That's because you're a woman!" :-) This above little poem thingy got me thinking. Of course it is late and Matt is at station and I have a hard time going to sleep when he is gone. I know that I should probably NOT do my deep thinking now and then broadcast it to all of humanity (my 7 friends that actually read this), but I am doing it the freak anyway because I just don't want to try to sleep yet. Anyway, about the poem. I waste time trying to make friendships happen that maybe were not meant to happen. The whole idea of, "if they aren't banging down your door, sending you emails, calling you etc. I should not be making all the efforts I am making. I know there are some downright amazing people that I really haven't taken enough time to get to know and I really should do that instead. I am blessed by those that DO make the effort. Those that get up early to go to my Lupus walk,(with heart felt tears, thank you), those that sit with me in a hospital waiting room for 8 hours waiting for the Surgeons update, those that love me and listen to me when they KNOW I am making bad choices and yet still love me and listen, to you all I will be forever grateful.

About the line above in the poem about the past...well, I think I will just leave that there.(Unless I can't sleep and I need something to think about ;)
