    Donna dearest, You have broken the code. Growing old is destiny and I take each day as another gift from God and each pain as an attack from Satan for loving God. I laugh at the attention I draw from the evil one. It must mean I often represent a burr under his saddle..... Love ya...... Jake

    Well, Donna I have read 3 and they are all filled with hope and pointing out the disparity of life in a positive tone. I will return later to read more, but let me tell you now that I know about pushing ourselves up out of bed, my biggest complaint in "growing old, which I refuse to do," is that my feet hurt. I pray for Mary Magdaline in my life, bless her heart, she loved our Saviours feet. I like what you do, few poets reach my mind-heart. You have. Ronnie

    God's grace in a smile, get's us through for a little while. Imagine if we didn't have any. Life wouldn't be worth even a penny. They say too much iron in your system is bad. Well, what about Geritol and iron poor blood. Just a thought. :)

    You commented on a poem of mine which sparked my interest in you. Beautifully written stuff here. You really caught the essence of what it must feel like to be growing old. Kudos, Donna.

    i hope you took note of how many people read my poem that you deserve exponentially.probably six times more than when i write about what dope has done to me and how many friends it has robbed me of, perhaps people just don't want to hear the truth.this poem of yours is just one more that displays the insight, humor and poetic talent i wrote about.your comment touched a part of a black heart which turned into a shade of gray.thank you for being you.your phan and phriend..PHREEPOETREE ~free cee!~

    Again Jeffry your words touch me..as for the dope...well it has hurt many people including me...I have never taken it but been in its path..its damaging path angry path. Twenty years with a husband and he I hope is now clean...so gray is a start....blessings
