Thoughts & Words Of The Day

I learned that God sends friends when
we need them the most and every friend
has a special purpose in our lives.

I learned that we often find
new friends in unexpected places.

I learned that despite the distance
between us, a real friendship grows
across the miles.

I learned that though we sometimes
expect someone to kick us down,
a true friend helps us stand back up.

I learned that we should not wait to
express our appreciation for our friends--
if we do, it will be too late.

I learned that we should be open to a
friend's view as two people can look at the
same thing and see something different.

I learned that we should not judge
our friends but respect their
way of life even if we disagree with it.

I learned that we should not only
take the time to talk to our friends,
but we should also listen and try
to understand.
If we can't understand,
we should accept.

I learned that our friends should
always take something good away with
them each time they cross our path.

I learned that friends sometimes
hurt us unintentionally, but we
should forget and forgive.

I learned that friends change
over time and that such change should
be welcomed as it's necessary for growth.

I learned that friends sometimes need
time and space, and we should
be thoughtful and understanding
of their needs.

I learned that you should treat a friend
kindly today, for the people we love the most
are often taken away from us too soon.

I learned that friendship is a candle
that lights our way, and though
it flickers against the
winds of time, distance, and change,
its beauty endures
and shines forever in our hearts.

Thougths & Words Of The Day

You Have the Right...

You have the right to be who you want to be, to live your life how you wish to live it.

You have the right to your opinion--to your likes and dislikes. You don't have to like or approve of something just because someone else does.

You have the right to refrain from doing something that you feel is wrong, injurious, or that goes against your beliefs.

You have the right to be respected for your decisions. Some people may not understand the choices you've made or what it's like to walk in your path, but you should have confidence in knowing that you made the right decision anyway.

You have the right to privacy, and what you tell someone in confidence should never be betrayed.

You have the right to express your opinions and feelings; however, you must always consider other people's feelings in doing so.

You have the right to feel confident about your work, skills, talent and in being yourself.

You have the right to pursue your dreams.

You have the right to enjoy the time spent with your friends and family.

You have the right to be happy and to greet each new day with hope.

Thougths And Words Of the Day

Expect A Rainbow...

Expect a rainbow,
and you'll find it eventually.
Your dreams will come true
as long as you believe they will.

Expect a rainbow--
believe in the impossible,
otherwise you may miss
opportunity when it
knocks on your door.

Expect a rainbow,
and escape to dreams.
If you can touch your dreams
with your eyes shut,
then you can stay focused
on your goal with your eyes open.

Expect a rainbow;
look beyond the storm for
the beauty that follows
the darkness.

Expect a rainbow;
have faith in yourself
above all things.
If you believe in yourself,
then others will believe in
you too.
