It Might and It Might Not

It Might and It Might Not - Anonymous
You never know when someone
Might catch a dream from you.
Or something you say may open up the windows
Of a mind that seeks light;
The way you live may not matter at all,
But you never know, it might.
And just in case it could be
That another's life, through you,
Might possibly change for the better
With a better and brighter view,
It seems it might be worth a try
At pointing the way to the right;
Of course, it may not matter at all,
But then again, it might.

Be Happy. God Bless.

The Will To Win

    The Will To Win - Berton Braley
If you want a thing bad enough
To go out and fight for it,
Work day and night for it,
Give up your time and your peace and
Your sleep for it
If only desire of it
Makes you quite mad enough
Never to tire of it,
Makes you hold all other things tawdry
And cheap for it
If life seems all empty and useless without it
And all that you scheme and you dream is about it,
If gladly you'll sweat for it,
Fret for it, Plan for it,
Lose all your terror of God or man for it,
If you'll simply go after that thing that you want.
With all your capacity,
Strength and sagacity,
Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,
If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,
Nor sickness nor pain
Of body or brain
Can turn you away from the thing that you want,
If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
You'll get it!

Be Happy. God Bless.

The Seven Wonders of the World

Junior high school students in Chicago were studying the Seven Wonders of the World. At the end of the lesson, the students were asked to list what they considered to be the Seven Wonders of the World. Though there was some disagreement, the following received the most votes:

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. The Taj Mahal in India
3. The Grand Canyon in Arizona
4. The Panama Canal
5. The Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall

 While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The quiet girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many." The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help."

 The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:
 1. to touch...
2. to taste...
3. to see...
4. to hear... (She hesitated a little, and then added...)
5. to feel...
6. to laugh...
 7. and to love

 The room was so quiet, you could have heard a pin drop.
 May this story serve as a gentle reminder to all of us that the things we overlook as simple and ordinary are often the most wonderful - and we don't have to travel anywhere special to experience them.
 Enjoy Your Gifts!
Be Happy. God Bless.

You Are My Dream Come True

You Are My Dream Come True -Cheryl Ann
Always in my heart 
you make me feel more loved 
than I've ever felt 
and happier than I've ever dreamed. 
The love and understanding you have 
is something I have searched for 
my entire life. 
Always in my happiest 
and saddest moments, 
you are my best friend and confidante. 
I come to you for everything, 
and you listen to me without judgment.
Always, deep within my soul, 
I know we have a love like no other. 
What we share is something others 
only hope for and dream of, 
but few ever experience. 
Our love is magical beyond belief. 
Always, without hesitation, 
you give of yourself completely. 
You have reached the very depths of my soul, 
bringing out emotions I never knew I had 
and unveiling an ability to love 
I never thought possible.
Always and forever 
you will be my dream come true, 
the one I have waited for all these years. 
From now until the end of time, 
I will love only you. 
We will be together always.

Be Happy. God Bless.
