You Make a Difference

Posted in Inspiration with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 9, 2012 by allisonlabine

You make a difference every single day in the lives of those you love.
You make a difference to someone every time you smile.
You make a difference when you see the world with your heart.
You make a difference when you realize that
No matter how small, everything you do matters to someone.

Take my hand

Posted in Inspiration, Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2012 by allisonlabine

I will be strong, and
I will be weak.

The wind will bend me,
Shape me,
Break me.

The sun will burn and
Sometimes blaze.

And the rain will never fail
To fall.

But I will stand.
I will get back up.
I will keep my head held high.

But not so high,
I miss your hand,
Reaching out to take mine.

-Allison LaBine
