Here's a story from CNN about a soldier and his dog. The soldier has gastroparesis from head injuries. He rescued the dog less than a day before the dog was to be put down, now the dog is helping watch over him.

/man-saved-by-god-and-by-dog-who-says-
grace/

I had seen the video of the dog praying before, but I didn't know the story behind it. This is a touching story, and enouraging for all of us. No matter how sick someone may be, there is so much we can do for others - humans and animals. emoticon emoticon emoticon

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." ~ Calvin Coolidge

Life's an adventure ... take it one step at a time and don't underestimate yourself! You're capable of more than you think you are! How do I know this? You're still here aren't you? That means you haven't given up!

"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly." - Thomas H. Huxley, 1825-1895

"You don't need anyone else's permission to be happy. Your life is magnificent not because someone says it is, but because you choose to see it as such." ~ Ralph Marston

Life's an adventure ... take it one step at a time and don't underestimate yourself! You're capable of more than you think you are! How do I know this? You're still here aren't you? That means you haven't given up!
