not my words, but I had to borrow...


When my page is blank, you don’t know that earlier I was full of ideas.
When my house is a tip, you don’t know that yesterday I cleaned all day and that it looked nice for ten minutes.
When I say something stupid, you don’t know that the last time I opened my mouth I spoke insightful wisdom.
When I am quiet all day, you don’t know how I love and long to sing.
When I cry, you don’t know that this morning I smiled.
When I write badly, you don’t know that last week I wrote brilliantly.
When I burn the dinner, you don’t know that yesterday’s meal was delicious perfection...
When I seem weak and easily controlled, you don’t know that I have had a long fight and am tired.
When I am shallow, you don’t know that I am really deep.
When I am grumpy, you don’t know how patient I have been for so long.
When I ask stupid questions, you don’t know that tomorrow I will have all the clever answers.

I love these words...I think eveyone can relate to them!

Very poignant words. I think a lot about how little people know us--the inner us--even with all our "sharing" in both real and virtual spaces.

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments. I too was moved by the writing and felt compelled to share.
