You have the Gift of Life!

Even if you have nothing else, you have something more Precious
than the purest gold, more rare and desirable than The brightest diamond.

You have Life.
You can sense, you can think and you can reason.
You can Make decisions and then act on them.
You can make a difference, no matter what.
Even if you were To lose everything else, you would still retain
the ability To become the person you decide to become
to live in the Way you have determined to live.
At times it may seem that the whole world is against you.
But that assessment is based on past history,
the past Does not equal the future.
That's because you stand solidly in the present.
You're able To break free of whatever has happened in the past
to Create your future in the way you desire.
Today, in this moment, in this place, you have life,
the Countless possibilities it brings.
Truly appreciate what you Have, with it you can do spectacular things.

"Last Love Letter"

"Last Love Letter"

I'm writing my last love letter
And for reasons now, I don't know where to start
Seems so many times I've written down "I love you"
Well I hope this time I can get that through your heart

Only fools will go on and keep talkin' to a wall
But I can't fool around forever
And if stone is the wall that you've built around your heart
Then I guess it's goodbye in this letter

And maybe I was wrong to ever think that you could love me
I was hoping you just couldn't find the time
Have my efforts been in vain with pen and paper?
Did you ever care, did I ever cross your mind?

Only fools will go on and keep talkin' to a wall
But I can't fool around forever
And if stone is the wall that you've built around your heart
Then I guess it's goodbye in this letter

 In this letter

How to make Bacon Roses,,,


“For Attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. 
People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.” 
― Sam Levenson
