Our Sole Mates........What they mean to us.........

His Mate Is Gravely Injured




He Brings Her Food and Tends To Her




The Next Time He Returns With Food, He Sees That She Has Died




He Tried To Wake His Dead Mate




He Stands Beside Her and Screams



Finally He Stands Beside Her, In Sorrow



Photos of two birds, said to have been taken in the Republic of Ukraine, where the bird tries desperately to save his mate.


Millions of people cried after seeing these photos in America and Europe. It is said that the photographer sold these pictures for a


nominal price to a famous newspaper in France. And all the copies of that newspaper were sold out on the day it published them.




Love is not finding someone to live with; it's finding someone you can't live without.

I truly feel this way about my husband, children, grand children and each of you that I can blog with everyday. It's great to have friends so distant but just a click away from the computer. Each of you have come into my life and I've made some great friends here. And just a huge thank you to those of you who pray for my mother and Gloria you are so sweet and such a wonderful person; god made a good one when he selected you! Thank you for your friendship and more.

Oh that is so sad...almost made me cry again!
You are so right about what you wrote on my blog... if you stop dreaming your life stops moving forward! I'm a true believer of dreams & setting goals. I won't ever stop dreaming, it's just a bit sad when dreams come close but don't pan out. Oh well, that's life!
