    Life has a funny way of teaching us.
    It will create deep sadness so we know how to truly understand happiness.
    It will create chaos in our lives so that we may appreciate the peaceful times
    and it will take those we love away from us so that we will truly understand
    what their presence meant to us.

    emoticon emoticon DO YOU EVER THINK emoticon emoticon

    Do you ever think...
    about the color of the sky?
    about the reason or why?
    just what are we doing here?
    just why there is so much fear?
    Do you ever think...
    do we all have something to give?
    do we all have a reason to live?
    before you've started to act?
    before you've got all the facts?
    Do you ever think...
    can we throw hatred away?
    can we all live in peace one day?
    shouldn't these questions need to be asked?
    shouldn't the answers be learned from our past?

    ~~~~ emoticon ~~~~FIVE MORE MINUTES~~~~ emoticon ~~~~
    While at the park one day,
    a woman sat down next to a man on a bench near a playground.
    "That's my son over there," she said, pointing to a little boy
    in a red sweater who was gliding down the slide.
    "He's a fine looking boy" the man said. "That's my son on the swing in the blue sweater."

    Then, looking at his watch, he called to his son. "What do you say we go, Todd?"
    Todd pleaded, "Just 'FIVE MORE MINUTES.' Dad. Please? Just 'FIVE MORE MINUTES.'
    The man nodded and Todd continued to swing to his heart's content.
    Minutes passed and the father stood and called again to his son.
    "Time to go now?" Again Todd pleaded, 'FIVE MORE MINUTES', Dad.
    Just FIVE MORE MINUTES.' The man smiled and said, "O.K."

    "My, you certainly are a patient father," the woman responded.
    The man smiled and then said, "My older son Tommy was killed
    by a drunk driver last year while he was riding his bike near here.
    I never spent much time with Tommy and now I'd give anything
    for just FIVE MORE MINUTES with him.
    I've vowed not to make the same mistake with Todd.
    He thinks he has FIVE MORE MINUTES to swing.
    The truth is, I get FIVE MORE MINUTES to watch him play."

    Life is all about making priorities, what are your priorities?
    Give someone you love 'FIVE MORE MINUTES of your time today.

    ~~~~~~~~Very Emotional Heart Touching Short Story~~~~~~~~
    (I realize this is a little long, but is worth reading for all of us)

    One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door
    to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.
    He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.
    She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk He drank it slowly,
    and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied.
    “Mother has taught us never to accept payment for a kindness.”
    He said… “Then I thank you from my heart.”

    As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt; stronger physically,
    but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
    Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled.
    They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists
    to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.
    When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.

    Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.
    Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her.
    He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined
    to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.
    After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office
    to pass the final bill to him for approval.He looked at it,
    then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.

    She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for
    it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught her attention
    on the side as she read these words…… ” Paid in full with one glass of milk.”
    (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.
    Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: “Thank You, GOD,
    that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands.”
