I opened this in an email and decided I had to share this poem with you. I would love for you to share your thoughts. I look forward to your comments.
“The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of anything.
A Birth Certificate shows we were born.
A Death Certificate shows we died.
Pictures show we lived!
Just because two people argue, doesn’t mean they don’t love each other.
And just because they don’t argue, doesn’t mean they do love each other.
We don’t have to change friends if we understand friends change.
No matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while.
You must forgive them for that.
True friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
…Same goes for true love.
You can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
It’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
You should always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
You can keep going long after you think you can’t.
We are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
Either you control your attitude or it controls you.
Heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done,
regardless of consequences.
Money is a lousy way of keeping score.
My best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
Sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down
will be the ones to help you get back up.
Sometimes when I’m angry, I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had,
what you’ve learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays
It isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others;
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.
No matter how bad your heart is broken,
The world doesn’t stop for your grief.
Our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
But we are responsible for who we become.
You shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret.
It could change your life forever.
Two people can look at the exact same
Thing and see something totally different.
Your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even
Even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to
you, you will find the strength to help.”
