I think life should be about touching the lives of people around us. Making a difference. Accepting people for who they are, going out of our way to help others, and loving with all that we’ve got. Sometimes all it takes is one simple gesture, and we can put a smile on someone’s face and make them feel less alone. That is what we should live for, because when we’re gone from this world, we can’t take anything with us. All that’s left are the people whose lives you touched, and the difference you’ve made while you were here. So... Read more »

When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.

Friendship is a glorious thing... we find ourselves telling each other the deepest details of our lives, things we don't even share with our families who raised us. But what is a friend? A confidant? A shoulder to cry on? An ear to listen? A heart to feel? A friend is all these things, and more.No matter where we met, we call each other friends. A word so small, yet so large in feeling, a word filled with emotions. It is true great things come in small packages. Once the package of true friendship has been opened, it can never... Read more »

An important lesson that we all must learn in our lives is... that despite all of the plans, despite all of the goals, and despite all of the direction that we try to put into our lives, sometimes life has a way of just taking us into its own direction. Not everything that we can do in life can be controlled and we have to learn to be able to let go in order to be able to free ourselves us from the weight of the past and to be able to fly in the future. Let go after that... Read more »
