You are so good to me,
I'm glad you're my friend
And I hope that we will be
Friends 'til the end.



You make me feel special
With all that you do,
You make me feel lucky
To be around you



You are there for me
Through the good and bad,
And you make me so happy
I could never be sad



I just want to thank you
For all that you do,
And I promise someday
I'll do the same for you

Have A Beautiful Day
Thanks For Being A Wonderful Friend

 



 






Standing for what you believe in regardless of the odds against you,
and the pressure that tears at your resistance
...is Courage.



Keeping a smile on your face when inside you feel like dying,
for the sake of supporting others
...is Strength.



Stopping at nothing and doing what's in your
heart that you know is right
...is Determination.



Doing more than is expected, to make another's life a little more bearable,
without uttering a single complaint
...is Compassion.



Helping a friend in need, no matter the time or effort,
to the best of your ability
...is Loyalty.



Holding your head high
And being the best you know you can be when life
seems to fall apart at your feet,
...is Fortitude.



Facing each difficulty with thoughts that
time will bring you better tomorrows,
And never giving up...
...is Confidence.

I Believe In You Friend, Have A Great Day
Hold Your Head High And Make Your Life Better Every Day

Weird Thoughts I Had
 

Protons have mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic.

All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make ME happy.

A beggar asked me for 50 cents for a sandwich.
      I said, "First let me see the sandwich."

What is a "free gift?" Aren't all gifts free?

Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when
      he grows up, he'll never be able to merge his car onto a freeway.

One nice thing about egotists: They don't talk about other people.

How can there be self-help "groups"?

What's another word for thesaurus?

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I
      learned that most people die of natural causes.

If you want to make a woman nervous, just
      put her in a room with a hundred hats and no mirror.
 



Have A Silly Day
I Thought This Might Make You Smile

 

 



 



They don't look alike or speak the same language, such a mixture of civilizations. In matters of religious beliefs, one can hardly seem to count how many they are.


Still, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a hand put on the heart of the human race. Nobody turned to accuse
the White House or the military. Bank accounts were not emptied. No one rushed on the streets nearby to gape about. Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand. After the first moments of panic, they raised the flag on the smoking ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the national flag.

They placed flags on buildings and cars.
On every occasion they started singing their traditional song: "God Bless America!".

I watched three times, on different TV channels, Clint Eastwood, Willie Nelson, Robert de Niro, Julia Roberts,
Cassius Clay, Jack Nicholson, Bruce Springsteen, Silvester Stalone, James Wood, and many others whom no film or producers could ever bring together. The American's solidarity spirit turned them into a choir. You could hear the heavy artillery of the American soul.

I listened to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californianhockey player, who fought with the terrorists and prevented the plane fromhitting a target that would have killed other hundreds or thousands of people. How on earth were they able to bow before a fellow human?

Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone call,
millions and millions of dollars were put in a collection aimed at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit which nothing can buy.

What on earth can unite the Americans in such a way?
Their land? Their galloping history? Their economic power? Money?
I tried for hours to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of sounding commonplace.
I thought things over, but I reached only one conclusion.

Only Freedom can work such miracles!
(Have a wonderful day and let Freedom ring my fellow American)

 



 






Even when you are feeling blue
And think there's nothing you can do
Remember every day is new,
Remember that your friends are true,
And all the noble things you do.



Remember that I think of you
And send you wishes warm and true,
There's always something you can do
To tell someone "I thought of you!"



I've sent a little thought today
To show you friend that come what may.
I'll always be right here for you
Remember thats what best friends do.

Have A Super Day
(Remembering your friendship today)

 

 



 

If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you.
And share with you its beauty
On the days you're feeling blue.

If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own,
A place to find serenity-
A place to be alone.

If I could take your troubles,
I would toss them into the sea.
But all these things I'm finding
Are impossible for me.

I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rainbow fair.
But let me be what I know best
A friend that's always there.
