[b]I think we should ALL be thankful for our health and keep pushing day to day to fight the anxiety bfs causes and be thankful for each breath we take and not take a moment for granted. I found this poem when looking up some things and it meant a lot to me and I think it fits this BFS picture quite well. Merry Christmas to ALL and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!![/b]

[quote]I Tried To Climb A Mountain Today

I tried to climb the mountain today.
As I inched my way up the path, I felt overwhelmed, so I had to turn back.

I tried to climb the mountain today.
On my journey, darkness started to fall,
and I was full of fear,
so I had to return to a safe place.

I was ready to climb the mountain today.
But it was so hot outside, I thought I better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.

I was about to climb the mountain today.
But I had so many other things to do,
so instead of climbing the mountain
I took care of much more important tasks.
I washed my car, mowed the grass

and watched the big game.

Today the mountain will just have to wait.

I was going to climb the mountain today.
But as I stared at the mountain
in it's majestic beauty,
I knew I stood no chance of making it to the top,
so I figured why even bother trying.

I have forgotten about climbing the mountain today;
until a friend came by and asked me what I was up to lately. I told him I was thinking about climbing that mountain some day. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish this task. Finally, he said,
"I just got back from climbing the mountain."

For the longest time I told myself I was trying to
climb the mountain but never made any progress.
I almost let the dream of making it to the top die.
I came up with every excuse of why I could not
make it up the mountain,
but never once did I give myself a reason
why I could.

One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered,
I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream, all my dreams will eventually die."

"The next morning, I started my climb." He continued, "It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge,

I kept walking.
When the voices inside my head screamed "stop!" I focused on my goal never letting it out of sight, and I kept moving forward. At times, I was ready to quit, but I knew I had come too far. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled to make it to the top, but I climbed the mountain!"

"I have to be going," my friend said.
"Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams.
By the way, what are you going to do tomorrow?"

I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said....

"I have a mountain to climb"

Ty to all whom have help me conquer my fears and being there for me . Keep climbing the mountain- With Love, DeeDee :mrgreen:

I know Dee Dee meant this as inspirational. And I think Dee Dee is the best!

But Slavin, I agree with you. I hate Christmas.

But I love Jesus.

I hate Christmas because of the expectations of a Norman Rockwell painting. Of all the presents many of which will collect dust. People (myself) who cannot get along. The hypocracy.

But I still love Jesus. And want to celebrate Christmas because it is God's birthday.

It makes me really sad and guilty I feel this way.
