    Thought for the week: Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe, and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    Do not ask me to remember,

    Do not try to make me understand.

    Let me rest and know you’re with me,

    Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.

    I’m confused beyond belief,

    I am sad and sick and lost.

    Thank you for helping and caring

    For me at great cost.

    Do not lose your patience with me,

    Do not scold or curse or cry.

    I can’t help the way I’m acting,

    I can’t be different though I try.
