A birth certificate shows that we were born; a death certificate shows that we died; pictures show that we lived!
Have a seat. Relax.   And read this slowly.

      I believe - That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

      I believe - That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

      I believe - That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

      I believe - That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

      I believe - That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want  to be.

      I believe - That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

      I believe - That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

      I believe - That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

      I believe - That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

      I believe - That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

      I believe - That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

      I believe - That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.

      I believe - That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

      I believe - That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

      I believe - That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

      I believe - That no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn't stop for your grief.

      I believe - That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

      I believe - Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

      I believe - That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

      I believe - That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you - you will find the strength to help.

      I believe - That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

      I believe - That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

      The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the best of everything they have.  
'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
