    YESSSSSSSS.....I really am a Grandma, I have 4 Grown-up (Well, as much as children ever grow up..LOL) Children and 6 Growing Grandchildren, another Grandson expected in April...... My Grand daughter really did invite me here...Probably so I could give her gifts... wink Actually it is because:<br />
    I AM A KEWL GRANDMA... LOL..... I live in Chicago, (city girl) . I love Nature and enjoy Photography. I have begun practising Shamanism again and it feels GREAT! smile <br />
    <br />
    David and I have parted ways.....which is always a painful process.<br />
    I am looking for a new job and starting a new chapter in my life.... <br />
    <br />
    NATURE IS ALL AROUND US ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS LOOK<br />
    <br />

    SING as if no one is listening<br />
    DANCE as if no one is watching<br />
    LOVE as if you have never been loved before<br />

    I would like to Share this wonderful Piece by:<br />
    <br />
    Oriah Mountain Dreamer:<br />
    <br />
    The Invitation<br />
    <br />
    It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.<br />
    I want to know what you ache for<br />
    and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.<br />
    <br />
    It doesn’t interest me how old you are.<br />
    I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool<br />
    for love<br />
    for your dream<br />
    for the adventure of being alive.<br />
    <br />
    It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...<br />
    I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow<br />
    if you have been opened by life’s betrayals<br />
    or have become shrivelled and closed<br />
    from fear of further pain.<br />
    <br />
    I want to know if you can sit with pain<br />
    mine or your own<br />
    without moving to hide it<br />
    or fade it<br />
    or fix it.<br />
    <br />
    I want to know if you can be with joy<br />
    mine or your own<br />
    if you can dance with wildness<br />
    and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes<br />
    without cautioning us<br />
    to be careful<br />
    to be realistic<br />
    to remember the limitations of being human.<br />
    <br />
    It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me <br />
    is true.<br />
    I want to know if you can <br />
    disappoint another <br />
    to be true to yourself.<br />
    If you can bear the accusation of betrayal<br />
    and not betray your own soul.<br />
    If you can be faithless<br />
    and therefore trustworthy.<br />
    <br />
    I want to know if you can see Beauty<br />
    even when it is not pretty<br />
    every day.<br />
    And if you can source your own life <br />
    from its presence.<br />
    <br />
    I want to know if you can live with failure<br />
    yours and mine<br />
    and still stand at the edge of the lake<br />
    and shout to the silver of the full moon,<br />
    “Yes.”<br />
    <br />
    It doesn’t interest me<br />
    to know where you live or how much money you have.<br />
    I want to know if you can get up<br />
    after the night of grief and despair<br />
    weary and bruised to the bone<br />
    and do what needs to be done<br />
    to feed the children.<br />
    <br />
    It doesn’t interest me who you know<br />
    or how you came to be here.<br />
    I want to know if you will stand<br />
    in the centre of the fire<br />
    with me<br />
    and not shrink back.<br />
    <br />
    It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom<br />
    you have studied.<br />
    I want to know what sustains you<br />
    from the inside<br />
    when all else falls away.<br />
    <br />
    I want to know if you can be alone <br />
    with yourself<br />
    and if you truly like the company you keep<br />
    in the empty moments.<br />
    <br />
    If you like this one, look up The Dance and some of her other works!
