People; have asked me questions about myself personally, so I've decided to add this page to tell you a little bit about me and some of the more interesting parts of my life. I have not had a boring life by any means. I have had many unique and exciting adventures in my life and my work and I have met a lot of wonderful people to whom I can call "a friend". Music has always been a big part of my life. In my spare time, I am listening to various types of music. I love to hear the complex ways specifically how the music, sounds, words and psychoacoustics reflects the complete interpretation of all human emotions (its story). My hobbies and interests include computers, networking, HTML, photography, painting, reading, gardening, fishing, boating, remodeling, decorating and fashion. I do love to chat and make new friends all over the world. Well, I hope I didn't bore you too much. Maybe you found something on this page that you have in common with me! If, you have any questions or comments; please, do not hesitate to contact me by email at the addresses listed below. I look forward to hearing from you!! : ) : )
Remember, the greatest gifts' you can give to others is knowledge, respect, kindness, trust, honesty, your attention and time... and the most precious gift which costs you the least is a .... smile and a grin........... : )
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift. When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had. It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives. Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they'll love you back! Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart but if it doesn't, be content it grew in yours. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone. Don't go for looks; they can deceive. Don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile. There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real! Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do. May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy. Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying. This message is to those special friends who mean something to you, to those who have touched your life in one way or another, to those who make you smile when you really need it, to those that make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down, to those who you want to let them know that you appreciate their friendship.
"Things aren't always what they seem." Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don't turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every outcome is always to your advantage. You might not know it until some time later... Some people come into our lives and quickly go.. Some people become friends and stay awhile... leaving beautiful footprints on our hearts... and we are never quite the same because we have made a good friend!!
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present! I think these are very special thoughts...live and savor every moment...
