for good

I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led to those
Who help us most to grow
If we let them 
And if we help them in return

Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
because I knew you.
It well may be 
That we may never meet again
In this lifetime - so let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made from what I learned from you
You'll be with me,
Like a handprint on my heart.
And now whatever way our stories end,
I know you have rewritten mine
By being my friend

....Who can say if I've been changed for the better
But because I knew you
I have been changed "for good"

And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for

But then I guess we know 
There's blame to share
And none of it seems to matter any more

"For Good"

It was either this, or I was going to 
release the Flying Monkeys again!
And I know how you don't like that....

PS.... it's all I can do to not take off work and
become a "Wicked-Head."  A groupie....
That, and the fact that I would be broke in about a week....
Oh yeah, that!


  1. You're such a sweet lady and I'm sure we will meet in person one day.

    Now I want to go see Wicked wicked bad.

  2. lovin the lyrics, and I do believe thats true....gosh I hate when there are unauthorized flying monkey releases! hope you're having a great day!

  3. The song lyrics pretty much sum it all for me...
    My whole blogging experience.
    Right here in green and white.

    Ya know what, I think we should have a
    Wicked blogger meet up in January...
    Wicked will be in San Antonio!
    I wouldn't mind seeing it again and again!
    Calling all Bloggers..... Houston, Austin, Small Little Towns....

    I'm in! Let's do it!
    What are you waiting for?

  4. I often threaten my teens..."Don't MAKE me call the Flying Monkeys!"

  5. Darn, wish you lived closer. Hanging out with you would be a wickly wonderful whirlwind time. I definitely believe it's true that people come into your life when you need them. Glad I found my way here just wish it had been sooner. *hugs*

  6. Like a "handprint on my heart". :)Seems it's time for a Carb Tripper hand-drawn bit of art of that, yes? Yes?

    I imagine lots of people have been blessed by you. You left handprints all over, huh?

  7. Anne, that is for sure, you really have touched our lives and made a difference. hugs my friend...theres always a trip to Canada and an open dooor.

  8. Thanks, Cinner -
    Wicked is actually in T.O!

  9. Oh Anne...I cry every time I hear that song. My very favorite from Wicked. I've seen it three times and I would LOVE to see it again. San Antonio in January? Hmmmmm....

  10. I love that song. I do a mean version of it when I'm cleaning house--singing along with the soundtrack always makes the job go faster.

  11. Did I see Austin? That could probably be done.

    Those are great song lyrics.

  12. ooooo
    sorry - I meant to say February - not January!
    I think this project needs it's own dedicated post!
    Coming soon to a blog near you!

  13. Next time you head west, I expect a meet up. And a whataburger packed in dry ice. I wonder how many letters it would take for the corporate bigwigs at whataburger to consider putting one in her on the west coast?

  14. Yeah, I knew you would love the show! It's really something, isn't it.
    Cheers, jj

  15. oh noes, not the flying monkeys!

  16. Awesome thoughts, even though I see flying monkeys I am on board. I feel I am better today for having come to know you as well.

  17. Speaking of Wicked... Has anyone seen the new show on SyFy called Hollywood Treasures? It has replaced my addiction to Pawn Stars and American Pickers. Anyway... Last week they found and auctioned off The Wicked Witch's Hat. $200,000!!!!!!!!!!!! (They also found and are about to auction Chitty Chitty Bang Bang THE car. Must watch TV.


I would love to hear from you!
