Desire, That Beast Within

Depression is,
A state of mind whereby one is haunted,
By omissions from a past that can't be forgotten,
     Of thoughts ever present over which there's no control
                     And a future, void of optimism concerning change.

So, today I send a wish from my house to yours. Have a Joyous Holiday and a Happy New Year. Please remember the sick and hungry in your prayers daily. Do all you can to help in anyway you can. Love and blessing, Carol and Family (Your smile can warm a heart)
