      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Holiday Schmoliday

Recommended Posts

Finding joy during this holiday is difficult,

you used to be here,

for all the festivities.

I smile for all those around me,

even though inside my  heart is heavy and aches.

I put on a show,

for all to see,

so no one will know.

That deep down,

it is not okay.

My present for all,

is the smile I show,

the lightness I do not feel,

sometimes it is hard to tell,

what I really feel.

What I know is that

darkness hovers,

the constant reminder that you are gone.

You will not walk through that door,

no matter how much I want you to.

I see you everywhere,

the smiles of others,

the smell of blueberry pancakes,

the books in the library,

talks with Dad.

I guess that is where the joy is.
