Today is the 5th anniversary of our plane crash.
I will always celebrate this day.
It is a day to rejoice and be thankful- especially to God.
It's kind of like our birthdays- we got a second chance at life,
a second birth.  I hope I am doing good things with this "new chance",
I am so thankful for my life, for my body, for my family.
 I am also so thankful for Mr. Nielson.  
We have been through quite a lot together.
But we have never quit, fallen out of love, or given in.
I am grateful for that.

on our special day today:}

i carry your heart with me


e.e. cummings

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
