To My friends Across the Internet

Friday, June 12, 2009

Somehow in this great big world
I found my way to you —

My friend across the Internet,
My heart, my joy, that's who!

You try to make me smile
With the mail you send my way,

You never fail to drop a line
Each and every day...

Whenever I have hurried home
With something new to share,

I find it just so comforting
That you are always there.

Encouragement you give me
And a friendship that is true...

I'm glad that when I went online,
I found someone like YOU!

~ Author Unknown

thanks everyone for all the support and encouragement i have received so far.........
without it .............there is no doubt that you have all given me the courage and the strength i needed to continue without giving up...........truth be told i tried my very best and my struggles continue............
i believe i may have turned a corner and am hopeful for the next round ...............
blessings and hugs.....................lita

Little stones make big mountains,
Little steps can cover miles,
Little acts of loving-kindness
Give the world it's biggest smiles...
Little words can soothe big troubles
Little hugs can dry big tears,
Little candles light the darkness,
Little memories last for years...

Little dreams can lead to greatness,
Little victories to success~
It's the little things in life
That brings the greatest happiness...
~ Author Unknown

It really is the little things that mean the most of all...
The "let me help you with that" things that may seem very small,
The "I'll be glad to do it" things that make your cares much lighter,
The "laugh with me, it's funny" things that make your outlook brighter...
The "never mind the trouble" things, the "yes, I understand,"
The interest and encouragement in everything you've planned...
It really is the little things, the friendly word or smile,
That add such happiness to life and make it more worthwhile.

don't give up

Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Do not set your goals by what other people deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.

Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them, life is meaningless.

Do not let your life slip through your fingers
by living in the past nor for the future.
By living your life one day at a time,
you live all the days of your life.

Do not give up when you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

Do not shut love out of your life
by saying it is impossible to find.

The quickest way to receive love is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love
is to hold it too tightly.

Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without hope;
To be without hope is to be without purpose.

Do not run through life so fast that you forget
not only where you have been,
but also where you are going.

Life is not a race, but a journey
to be savored each step

~ By Nancye Sims ~

i continue to plod along ever so slowly but surely and have reached one of many small goals i have set for myself..........this is a journey with many twists and turns.............thanks for all the encouragement and support i have received it's what has kept me going when i didn't feel like i could continue any longer....................you are all so special to me...............thanks for being there when i needed you most......................
wishing everyone a great weekend ..........................blessings and hugs...................lita

What Heroes Gave........

Saturday, May 23, 2009

What Heroes Gave

by Roger Robicheau

Each donned their uniform to be
Defenders of our liberty

Their mission sure, their spirits bright
Guard freedom’s home, be brave to fight

One final day each faced their call
Each gave their best enduring all

We’ll never know what they went through
But know they loved this country true

Deep down inside we should all feel
What heroes gave, their cost so real

We must stay thankful, grateful of
The gift of freedom through their love

Their loved ones bore the gravest pain
What we can’t know, some now sustain

To God I pray their pain will cease
And each will find long-lasting peace

Remember this from year to year
What heroes gave – shan’t disappear

We’ll never let their special day
Their time for honor slip away

These brave fought for a nation free
If not for them, where would we be?

    Soldiers in every country have given a lot. But one Canadian Vet said to me one day is this:
Everybody says soldiers GAVE their lives. They DIDN'T GIVE their lives; their lives were TAKEN from them.
I smiled back and nodded in agreement.

What will matter

Friday, May 15, 2009

What will matter

Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end.

There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten
will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations
and jealousies will finally disappear.

So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

It won't matter where you came from
or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end.
It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

So what will matter?
How will the value of your days be measured?

What will matter is not what you bought
but what you built, not what you got but what you gave.

What will matter is not your success
but your significance.

What will matter is not what you learned
but what you taught.

What will matter is every act of integrity,
compassion, courage, or sacrifice
that enriched, empowered or encouraged others
to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence
but your character.

What will matter is not how many people you knew,
but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone.

What will matter is not your memories
but the memories that live in those who loved you.

What will matter is how long you will be remembered,
by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
Choose to live a life that matters.

~ © 2003 By Michael Josephson

    Great blog! I think I needed that as I've recently experienced the death of my mother and approaching death of a dear colleague. Your blog is a wonderful reminder to stay focused on the things that truly matter.

I hope things are well with you and the plateau is truly gone! I have every confidence you will reach your goal.

    That's a powerful poem that really puts things in perspective. Not exactly the cheeriest thing to read just before bed, but a little bit of existential horror never hurt anybody.
