Having One of Those Days

I was just thinking about the dinnerware that my mother had when I was a kid. Many of the pieces had been dropped or chipped and quite a few pieces had been glued back together. Those pieces were unattractive and did not look worthy of their intended purpose. You do not pour hot coffee into a cup that was split in half and glued back together.
These pieces did not get taken out of the cabinet very often and I asked on more than one occasion why she didn’t just throw them away instead of trying to repair them. She told me that they were still good and it seemed a shame to throw something good away just because it got broken. (I thought my mother was a little touched in the head at times)

I have realized that those dishes are a lot like my heart. It has been broken a few times. I have always glued myself back together and carried on.
With each break however my heart became more fragile and got taken out less and less often. Recently it has taken a few good smacks and I am really scared of breaking it again.

The purpose of this post is to tell some of you that although you don’t know me or know the impact that you have on me, you are the ones who have been instrumental in holding me together. Without you, I would have shattered long ago.

Smiles up at you.
Picks up a broken piece of body part and hands it back to you..
Your a tough cookie and have spirit, you won't stay broken forever.
The thing with broken hearts is that with time, people will handle you with care and it will mend the seams back together faster..

I know I'm rambling, but damn it sometimes you touch me
and I just can't spill the words out right.
So if that didn't make sense, heres just a smile for you

Broken body part?
Sometimes Pet, you soooooo make me smile.
You have no idea how special you are to me.
(and I don't mean special in the short bus kinda way)

I just came by to say hiya and let you know that I missed being by here. And to thank you for coming to see me. Plus I understand you fear of a broken heart as I have to deal with the same problem. Mostly right now it is fear of rejection. So...
