A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
Savour life's true delights--a crackling fire, a glorious sunset, a hug from a child, a walk with a loved one, a kiss behind the ear.
"A good friend is hard to find, hard to lose and impossible to forget." Dr. Joyce Brothers
"Follow your heart and you'll never get lost."
If people daily practiced forgiveness, they would probably put most doctors, social workers and loan companies out of business, because everyone would become healthy and prosperous.
My love, is such a beautiful thing.
The warmest thing I know.
With love and affection it always brings.
Even more than a rose. You know!
A rose is a beautiful flower.
In many colors that seem to glow.
But My Love seems to have the power.
When I'm sad, it makes smile "This I know."
A rose can be found in bunches, anywhere you look.
But My Love when he made it, so special that
I think they broke the mold.
A rose is something special to keep between the pages of a book.
But My Love is so very special, just something you want to hold.
Most of all when your down, hurt or crying.
A rose will not help you smile or improve your life.
My Love will just keep on trying.
And I'm proud to say "SHE'S MY WIFE."
"Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you want and let the food fight it out inside."
Once we learn to count our blessings, they increase. Madeleine L'Engle
"Take time for yourself today----------enjoy a good book, sink into your favorite chair and let the fire within you glow. Linda Knight
The greatest secret of success in life is for a person to be ready when the opportunity finally comes. Benjamin Disraeli
There's always reason to hope.
Replace something on your to-do list with something that makes you happy.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
Stand still and savor the silence. Make a wish upon a star. Laugh until your sides ache. Revel in the gifts of this moment.

Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Smiles are the next best thing to halos.
Bridged By A Rainbow
Are ya livin in troubled times?
Where nothing ya do seems right
While brother, sister, friend n foe
Waitin for a sign ta come in sight
Don’t think friend, you’re all alone
Plight’s been here, as long as time
Why else would God send His Son
Ta Save the souls of all mankind
I hear it said, almost every day
God give me a sign! Something ta see!
While all the time, His paint brush is out
Painting a picture, just for
you and me
Look at the mountains ya scaled taday
Did ya take time ta maybe glance back
Well if ya didn’t, I must say my friend
It’s no wonder troubles, you don't lack
Like so many I have met in my life
We are all in a hurry ta get the job done
And when the storms come pouring down
We missed the blessings that we had won
Now if you’ll look, right after the storm
I am sure you’d agree this is Gods Show
You can be layin your troubles all aside

A Box of Kisses
by Author Unknown
The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.
Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy." He was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found the box was empty.
He yelled at her, "Don't you know that when you give someone a present, there's supposed to be something inside it?"
The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said,"Oh, Daddy, it is not empty. I blew kisses into the box. All for you, Daddy."
The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.
It is told that the man kept that gold box by his bed for years and whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.
In a very real sense, each of us as humans have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, friends, family and God. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
All misfortune is but a stepping stone to fortune.
-- Henry David Thoreau
Anyone can sympathize with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathize with a friend's success.
-- Oscar Wilde
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
-- Margaret Mead
Friendship is not born of words alone.
