Friday Flash 55.....




He is kind and considerate, but loves to Shock!
He loves to make others smile.
He listens intently, but rarely talks about himself.
Other's happiness ALWAYS comes before his own.
He cries real tears!
He has always played the cards dealt to him....
But somewhere along the line,
HIS Heart got lost in the shuffle.


Regardless of Gender, we all know someone like this..
Don't we?
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!
So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Hmmm yes there are many good hearted people out there. Sadly I know a young man who got lost in the shuffle and took his life yesterday.
Thank you for your sensitivity and kindness to so many in the blogsphere G-Man

Brian Miller said...

This is my favourite in a long, long time.

I'm up.

Mama Zen said...

Now, I'm sad, G-Man!

Mines up! This might even be a link. Or, not.

hedgewitch said...

Crying real tears is a sign you're a real human. I love it when your sensitive side comes to the fore, Mr G.

I'm playin--no weird dreams this time, just a poem:

Broken Cored

Margaret said...

Certainly not talking about a politician!

Once Upon a Time

Will be back later tonight to read all the creative entries!

Daydreamertoo said...

Hey, I know some people like that. Thankfully :)

Mine's up:

Verbatim

Have a great weekend Mr G-Man and everyone.

Teresa said...

So easy to lose yourself in the needs of others. It's certainly important to care for the self also.

Mine is up here. http://razzamadazzle.wordpress.com/2012/01/12/a-night-out/

Polly Janos said...

I agree with Brian...balance is the key. How can you care and love others if you don't care for or love yourself? It's a hard lesson to learn.

My heart is HERE

magiceye said...

oh for sure!

am back after a short hiatus with http://instantwords.blogspot.com/2012/01/no-regrets.html

Alice Audrey said...

Yep, I've known a few. Except for the losing on his heart, it could be you.



Mine is up

Janna said...

I've been looking for someone like this for 42 years.
(My birthday was yesterday.)

It also reminds me of myself, since it seems my own heart got lost in the shuffle somewhere.

But alas.
Here I am.

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

yellowhousecafe said...

Oh boo, here you are being all lovely and sappy...and moi, her normal snarky self!! Glad you don't need to visit Oz for heart, G...I on the other hand may need all new parts. Perhaps a night at the symphony will do. Cheers ~

Christine said...

beautiful words G

Here's my whimsical contribution

Me said...

To me, it sounds like a parent: frequently, the self will come last...

A lovely 55, G.

I am in again this week. Mine is HERE.

TALON said...

They are a rare breed - the types who put others wants and wishes before their own. It seems hard for them to ever contemplate putting their own happiness at the top of the list, but they are the ones who truly deserve to do just that.

My 55: Bumptious

Claudia said...

yes..i know a few people like him..the dangerous thing is that he page can turn quite quickly and they become bitter, and then it's really sad... ok...haven't been here in ages but i'm playing this week...smiles
mine's HERE

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

It's good to have compassion for others, but one must have compassion for oneself as well. Thanks for the reminder, though, that not everyone is selfish in this self-centered world.

I wasn't quite so serious this week: Pirate

MorningAJ said...

I've known a few like that over the years. If I know that's the case I try to redress the balance.

Nice 55. My 55 are here.

JANU said...

Very sober and touching..
my 55 is here - http://janukulkarni.blogspot.com/2012/01/it-sure-is-bumpy-ride.html

mylittlewordz said...

That's a moving one, for sure. Let's hope it isn't autobiographical...

anthonynorth said...

So many of them around, if we look for them.
You'll find mine here.

Lydia said...

A very touching 55, G-Man...I think your deepest yet. Really loved it and the image.

Mine is Lord Helpme




Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

Ah yes, the proverbial 'Nice Guy' - always the friend of broken-hearted ladies, but never the object of their ardor. Been there, done that.

I don't have a 55 this week, but I'll make the rounds just the same.

(That's what us nice guys do - LOL!)

G-Man said...

Thanks Eric...You are very much appreciated.

And Correct!

the walking man said...

Yup.

hope said...

Just in case...here's a big ol' hug for YOU! ;)

Mine's up. Happy Friday the 13th. (What? I consider that much luckier than Monday the 13th!)

izzy said...

Hey-hey ! Is it Friday already ?
I know a woman or two who are distancing themselves from their
hearts- I keep snapping that
rubber band it is attached with
to remind 'em they don't want to go to the end of that leash-! Keep up the good stories-Happy Day!

Akelamalu said...

Sensitive and thoughtful this one G x

Mine's up too.

Raven said...

Mine is up...it's a sequel LOL.

You know what, I don't know anyone like that. Either I've become to cynical or I just don't attract those kinds of people. Either is possible. Most of the time I find myself biting my tongue listening to people I know talk about how they give and give and give and everybody just takes and takes and takes...when that's not true at all. They just can't see past their own 'good deeds'.

Have a kick ass Friday the 13th. :)

Craig said...

Very poignant. Thanks, G.

I think of Mother Theresa's maxim that our main task in this life is to learn what it really means to love. . .

Hillbilly Duhn said...

I think we've all felt lost in the shuffle a time or two. Hopefully we can learn to pick up the cards.

Hillbilly Duhn said...

Mine's up!
Surrender

Nimue said...

Oh yes. the nice guy ! Remember an essay written about him. almost like your post..

Taylor Boomer said...

very encouraging 55, enjoyed this one.


I am submitting an old piece of 55 words,

Lady In Read said...

My entry is up :http://myrandrspace.blogspot.com/2012/01/fun-friday-pinewood-derby-is-almost.html

Jannie Funster said...

That is so sad.

I always love when your sensitive side shows, G-Man. You are one-of-a-kind, for sure!!

xxoo

♥ bfs~"Mimi"♥ said...

I need to come back to blogging and to 55s and to writing in general. This was a good one; thanks much!

Other Mary said...

By the Numbers!

1,2,3 is easy as A, B, C
and 7 come 11 how lucky can ya get?
I’ll wager a bundle on that bet!
And of course both you and I
know 3.141592… is simple as pi,
though 2012
is a place I’d prefer not to delve
But, G-man, Friday 55
always makes me come ALIVE!
