Family and love.

I thank God.

I thank him for the good heart.

And for the love that had never left my side.

The mother for whom I can die.

The one that gave me life.

She always did what was best for me in her eyes,

She gave me glee joy happiness and advice.

She never let me wander away from her.

She protected me, helped me and kept me in her heart.

For that, a place is saved for her in mine.

I thank God for my dad.

The one that made my life worth living.

The one that always made my day.

When I was sad, upset, angry, or blue,

He gave me the ability to walk again on my feet.

The care he gave me was rare,

It could never be compared.

Even to the the sea that kept his pearls away from despair.

Love is a tree that grows in your heart.

With a drop of respect,

A dash of admiration,

And a handful of care,

The branches will reach every part of your body.

Pervade every organ.

Penetrate every cell.

And touch evey thought, memory or feeling.

Affect your every move or action.

Eventually, the tree and your soul will become one.

An inseparable, undivided form of divinity.

For love conquers every spirit it Impassioned.

Love will be conjured every moment, never changed altered or maimed.

Manaf Alabd Alrahim:

Most inspirational, spiritual, thoughtful, naturalistic, interesting, gratitude filled, well written and presented. Great writing.

Gave it an "I Like It" vote. As with your other postings. At times, without commenting. All well deserved.

Liked the naturalistic style of your writing. With the many themes of nature. In all of it's glory.

People, today, do not give the credit or show the gratitude to God which is due Him.

Thank you for becoming a fan. Appreciative and grateful. You are most kind and considerate.

Happy 2011,

Ed Bradley.
