E

Today I can't think of anything spectacular for "E"
Enjoy comes to mind. We love to enjoy things. We enjoy friends' company, we enjoy our children (for the most part, especially when they are sleeping) I enjoy fairies, incense, pink and lots more. I enjoy sleeping in on the weekends. I enjoy my pomeranian.
Some enjoy reading. Some enjoy writing, if that's possible, pulling hair out, chewing ends off pencils, rewriting pages after realizing the last didn't make any sense. :) uh-hem... I enjoy listening to books on my ipod. I have a hard time sitting down to read, but multitasking seems to work for me. What do you enjoy?
Empathy also is a good word.  Not enough of it in my world. Empathy is an ability with many different definitions. They cover a broad spectrum, ranging from feeling a concern for other people that creates a desire to help them, experiencing emotions that match another person's emotions, knowing what the other person is thinking or feeling, to blurring the line between self and other. I believe I have too much empathy. I feel bad for the disappointments others have, my heart breaks for the characters in movies. I have been told I feel too much, for others. Is that wrong? I think we all should care more. We have gotten to the point where we ignore everyone, every thing that happens, good or bad, in each other. It can change, one person at a time. Go out and be kind to others. Find homes for the little lost pups. give the homeless guy some change or a burger.
*steps off soapbox*
Have a great day!

That is so not wrong! I'm with you. I bawl my eyes out for people I don't know. It just means you care. :)

Great post, really. I don't think we'd have the problems we do if more people were empathetic. So no, not wrong at all. It probably couldn't be more right.

Have a great day,
Lisa

Another great post! Nothing wrong for feeling too much for others as long as you keep your sanity :).
I do agree with you that we should care more.
I enjoy singing. For me, singing is my stress reliever.

Thanks friends! It has been a pity party type of weekend I suppose. It feels good to have some encouragement :)

I don't think that caring to much is wrong. We need more compassion in this world. Great Post.
