This will be the last post for 2012! Affirming that 2013 is going to be better than we ever could imagine.

I am dedicating this poem to my ‘hijo’ who has had a most challenging year, beginning just before last Christmas. He’s not really my son, but I try to be the father he deserves, as he faces so many challenges ahead in 2013…. Like my true daughters in Canada, he makes me proud as he remains steadfast on his personal journey!  If this poem can be of support to someone special in your life, feel free to pass it along…. Feliz Año Nuevo 2013AGM!

Holding On


There is a time in our lives

When we either hold on

Or let go.

To hold on and fight the fight,

Can be agonizing for us,

And those around us.

Better to let go

And move on,

With head held high.

One cannot hold onto

What was never theirs to keep!

By letting go,

And releasing yourself from all attachments,

You are free to move on.

It is true,

Letting go can be painful,


But letting go

You must.

Spirit will keep us safe,

Faith will keep up our spirits.

Sometimes –

We try to hold on too long!
