I hope you don't consider any of these "people" your friends. No ONE has a right to say that to you, or even cause you to feel that way!!
You aren't a school girl crying over your favourite pop idol that got voted off the X Factor. It's seriously MUCH more than that, and you deserve unbridled, consistent support in your time of such loss.
Let only the good beautiful thoughts of your beloved DiDi remain true in your heart and mind; don't let others try and wisp them away with a cheap flea market fan.
Grr makes me very mad. You should be allowed to feel anything you want to, without judgement or prodding or influence from anyone else.
I'm going to go polish my ass-kicking boots now. May need them soon.
"JUST A HORSE..." |
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a horse," or,"that's a lot of money
For just a horse".
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs, both financial
And emotional, involved for "just a horse." Some of my proudest moments have come
About with "just a horse."
Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a horse," but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a horse," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a horse" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a horse," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."
"Just a horse" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a horse" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of "just a horse" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a horse" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
"Just a horse" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a horse" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a person."
DiDi rest in peace. You brought Barry such joy and deserve recognition and to be remembered for the rest of our living days.
