I had no idea. It saddens me to think that through all these years you were suffering. So many years passed by without a trace. I always wondered how you were/are. You always had a special place in my heart. I am so happy to have been able to touch base with you through Facebook. I don't know if you remember but I still have the heart shaped locket necklace you gave me with "love, Ross" engraved on it. I will always treasure it and keep it close. You are in my prayers ! Sweet kisses to you darling.
One Step at a Time
by Joseph Morris
In the morning with the journey all before us on the road,
It takes courage to begin, that is sure;
For the first step is the hardest, and we always think the load
May be greater than we've power to endure.
When the first mile lies behind us we can say, "Now that is done,
And the second and the third will soon be past."
So we trudge on through the noontime, and the setting of the sun
Finds us coming to our stopping-place at last.
When a man would climb a mountain he's appalled to see the length
Of the slope that reaches up into the sky;
But he starts, and with the climbing he will find he's gained the strength
To attain the very top, however high.
For the climbing of a mountain takes but one step at a time--
Who has courage to do that will reach the goal;
He will stand upon Life's summit and will know that joy sublime
Which is his alone who dares to prove his soul.
PS. Thank you for sharing a part of you through your music.
I always enjoyed hanging out with you and listening to you jam to Stevie Ray Vaughn and Van Halen's "Ice Cream Man."
Your voice and music is beautiful.
