    Stay positive..some of your best days haven't happened yet.

    Stay positive...The things you're waiting and hoping for
    tend to arrive at the most unexpected time.

    Stay positive...and the ups will be more frequent than the downs.

    Even tho' this is long, I just had to share it with you. It's worth reading.
    ~~~***~~~{}~~~***~~~A Man, Puppies, A Boy~~~***~~~{}~~~***~~~

    A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign
    advertising the 4 pups, and set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard.
    As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls.
    He looked down into the eyes of a little boy.
    "Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."
    "Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat of the back of his neck,
    "these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."
    The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket,
    he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer.
    "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
    "Sure," said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle. "Here Dolly!" he called.
    Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by
    four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the
    chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way
    to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.
    Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller.
    Down the ramp it slid. Then in a awkward manner,
    the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....
    "I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt.
    The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy.
    He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would."
    With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down,
    and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace
    running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.
    Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself,
    and he will need someone who understands."
    With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.
    Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.
    "How much?" asked the little boy.
    "No charge," answered the farmer, "There's no charge for love."

    You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast.
    Time is short. The music won't last.
    When you run so fast to get somewhere
    You miss half the fun of getting there.
    When you worry and hurry through your day,
    It is like an unopened gift thrown away.
    Life is not a race. Do take it slower
    Hear the music Before the song is over.

    A friend is like a flower, a rose to be exact,
    Or maybe like a brand new gate that never comes unlatched.

    A friend is like an owl, both beautiful and wise.
    Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost, whose spirit never dies.

    A friend is like those blades of grass, you can never seem to mow,
    standing straight, tall, and proud in a perfect little row.

    A friend is like a heart that goes on strong until the end.
    Where would we be in this world, if we did not have a friend.
