Don't ever be reluctant to show your feelings when you're happy, give in to it. When you're not, live with it.

Don't ever be afraid to try to make things better you might be surprised at the results.

Don't ever take the weight of the world on your shoulders.

Don't ever feel threatened by the future, take life one day at a time.

Don't ever feel quilty about the past what's done is done. Learn from any mistakes you might have made. Don't ever feel that you are alone there is always somebody there for you to reach out to.

Don't ever forget that you can achieve so many of the things you can imagine...It's not as hard as it seems.

Don't ever stop loving don't ever stop believing, don't ever stop dreaming your dreams.

The Time is Now

If you are ever going to love me, love me now, while I can know the sweet and tender feelings which from true affection flow. Love me now while I am living, do not wait until I'm gone and then have it chiseled in marble, sweet words on ice-cold stone. If you have tender thoughts of me please tell me now. If you wait until I am sleeping, never to awaken, there will be death between us, and I won't hear you then. So, if you love me, even a little bit, let me know it while I am living, so I can treasure it.


On the wings of angels you came to stand there with me. Maybe at first I didn't notice or I just didn't see the things you had to offer from so deep inside of you.

But you changed my life in many ways just by being you.

You offered up prayers for me when I didn't take time to pray, you would just sit and listen to the things I had to say.

You offered to carry my burdens when they got too much for me, and I'm sure you did little things that I didn't even see.

You were always there, or so it seems, to lend a helping hand. You were always there as support when it seemed I couldn't stand. And when I felt I was all alone I'd feel your spirit there, letting me know you were with me and that you really care.

I took the strength you offered when you'd hug me close to you, and even for days after I'd feel it in everything I would do. Or, maybe something that you said would bring a new insight to me, or help me face a new challenge that was put in front of me.

You challenged me to use my gifts the best way that I can, and you'd see my weaknesses as just a part of who I am. And when I needed to know that there was someone who really cared, all I had to do was look and I'd see you standing there.

And everything you offered I pray I gave back to you, and you feel my strength and presence in all that you do. For what came to me on angels wings has turned out to be, such an important part of my life and means so much to me.

So whether we are close together or life pushes us apart, I'll always feel the love for me that you have in your heart. And there is one thing that I know that I can carry to the end, that my life is so much better because you are my friend.

I would rather have one little rose from the garden of a friend, than to have the choicest flowers when my stay on earth must end. I would rather have one pleasant word in kindness said to me; than flattery when the heart is still and life has ceased to be. I would rather have a loving smile from friends I know are true, than tears shed round my casket when this world I've bid adieu. Bring me all your flowers today whether pink, white, or red; I'd rather have one blossom now than a truckload when I'm dead... author unknown


I pledge to you my soul mate all that I am and all that I have. I will be there whenever you need me in sickness and in health. I will love only you. I will comfort you when life knocks you down. I will understand those times when you need to be by yourself and I will be there when you come home. No greater love have I ever given to anyone. Love Me As I Love You...

PLEASE READ: Two years ago I created my web pages using WebTV. I lost everything! It has taken me a long time to create new ones and I am not finished yet. Especially the Gardens Web Site where I have to locate the pics to finish this. Some of the photos I am using will have to be replaced! Also, I am new at tables but hope that you can get around:)

I have borrowed graphics from many sites. If I missed giving credit to someone, please let me know and I will do that.
