If I Fall

From the R.E.M. recording Out of Time, there was a wonderful song called Texarkana sung by Mike Mills. The tag line in this song goes:

I would give my life to find it,
I would give it all,
Catch me if I fall.

I think we all dream of having that special someone in our lives to watch out for us, to protect us from the sticks and stones of life, to run to when we are lost or when we stumble and fall. A constant, a truth, a rock, ..., our rock. Folks like these in our lives are a true and wonderful blessing. For those of you who have such a support system, be thankful, and show your appreciation at every chance. For those who are alone, don't give up. Reach out with an open mind and an open heart.
