Letter to Mom
I am in Heaven now, my heart has been broken. I so wanted to be your little girl. I don't quite understand what has happened. I was so excited when I began realizing my existance. I was in a dark, yet comfortable place. I saw I had fingers and toes. I was pretty far along in my developing, yet not near ready to leave my surroundings. I spent most of my time thinking or sleeping. Even from my earliest days, I felt a special bonding between you and me. Sometimes I heard you crying and I cried with you. Sometimes you would yell or scream, then cry. I heard Daddy yelling back. I was sad, and hoped you would be better soon. I wondered why you cried so much. One day you cried almost all of the day. I hurt for you. I couldn't imagine why you were so unhappy. That same day, the most horrible thing happened. A very mean monster came into that warm, comfortable place I was in. I was so scared, I began screaming, but you never once tried to help me. Maybe you never heard me. The monster got closer and closer as I was screaming and screaming, "Mommy, Mommy, help me please; Mommy, help me." Complete terror is all I felt. I screamed and screamed until I thought I couldn't anymore. Then the monster started ripping my arms off. It hurt so bad; the pain I can never explain. It didn't stop. Oh, how I begged it to stop. I screamed in horror as it ripped my leg off. Though I was in such complete pain, I was dying. I knew I would never see your face or hear you say how much you love me. I wanted to make all your tears go away. I had so many plans to make you happy. Now I couldn't; all my dreams were shattered. Though I was in utter pain and horror, I felt the pain of my heart breaking, above all. I wanted more than anything to be your daughter. No use now, for I was dying a painful death. I could only imagine the terrible things that they had done to you. I wanted to tell you that I love you before I was gone, but I didn't know the words you could understand. And soon, I no longer had the breath to say them; I was dead.I felt myself rising. I was being carried by a huge angel into a big beautiful place. I was still crying, but the physical pain was gone. The angel took me to Jesus and set me on His lap. He said He loved me, and He was my Father. Then I was happy. I asked Him what the thing was that killed me. He answered, "Abortion. I am sorry, my child; for I know how it feels." I don't know what abortion is; I guess that's the name of the monster. I'm writing to say that I love you and to tell you how much I wanted to be your little girl. I tried very hard to live. I wanted to live. I had the will, but I couldn't; the monster was too powerful. It sucked my arms and legs off and finally got all of me. It was impossible to live. I just wanted you to know I tried to stay with you. I didn't want to die. Also, Mommy, please watch out for that abortion monster. Mommy, I love you and I would hate for you to go through the kind of pain I did. Please be careful.
Your Baby Girl

Better than Saying I Love You...
Marty wakes up at home with a huge hangover.
He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple
of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table.
He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed.
Marty looks around the room and sees that it is in a perfect
order,spotless, clean. So's the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins
and notices a note on the table
"Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love you."
So he goes to the kitchen and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the
morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating.
Marty asks, "Son, what happened last night?"
His son says, "Well, you came home after
3A.M., drunk and delirious. Broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and
gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."
Confused, Marty asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and
breakfast is on the table waiting for me?"
His son replies, "Oh that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she
tried to take your pants off, you said, "Lady, leave me alone, I'm

Always a sunrise
Look out, look in. Every day has a sunrise. Wherever you are, like a magic circle, the world is all around you. Everything has a purpose. Every action a reaction. All around you there are happenings.
People, places and ideas, all offering you opportunities. Some to be touched and changed by the very nature of your uniqueness. Others to be left alone for they are not worthy of you. Life is a love affair. Love the people around you, love what you do.
Every day dawns with a sunrise. Always, High days and low days. Blue skies of pleasure, there to enjoy. Celebrate. Dark clouds of storming hurt, however black, they always pass. Today was yesterday's tomorrow; yesterday is gone. History. And the wonder of yesterday is whatever we didn't like is behind us. Make a change. Unlimited you. Greatness from within.
There is no such thing as failure, only learning experiences. Some things are easy to learn, others hard. What is easy for one may be hard for another. Lessons to be learned, not burdens to be carried. Everyone is different. Everyone is special. We are all creative. We are all toolmakers.
Greatness and humility. Both are you. Leader and follower. Warrior and water carrier. Teacher and student. Champion and cheerleader. Who is to say? One day you are one, the next day you are the other. Pace setters tread the untrodden path. Never given away your sunrise day of action to an excuse.
'When the time is right.' 'When I feel like it.' 'When I've enough money.' Sometimes it's too easy to justify not taking action. Sometimes you have to say 'no' to your inner voice when it tries to keep you too comfortably where you're at. Always a new light. Always a new day. Each day a gift of opportunity. There is always a sunrise even when it is far from our view.
There is always a door. We simply have to seek. There is always a key. We simply have to persist. And, sometimes, we just have to wait a while. Patience does have virtue. There is always a future. The future is hope and the magic is faith. It begins with you today. Today a new day. Always. Today our decision to be the person we really want to be. Today our choice of courage to accept what we cannot change. Today our choice to rise to the challenge of changing what we must. These are the choices of happiness.
Always an answer. You simply have to believe. The dawn. The magic of a new day given to us. A love affair. A love affair with today. Today, a gift of opportunity; to laugh; to learn; to achieve; to make someone happy, to be happy. Always a sunrise

The man was old and ragged and gray
And bent with the chill of the winter's day
The street was wet with recent snow
And the man's feet were aged and slow
He stood at the crossing and waited long
Alone uncared for, amid the throng
Of human beings who just passed him by
Nor heeded the glance of his anxious eye
Down the street with laughter and shout
Glad in the freedom of " school let out "
Came the girls like a flock of sheep
Hauling the snow piled white and deep
Past the man old and gray
Hastened the children on their way,
No one offered a helping hand to him
So meek, so timid and afraid to stir
Lest the carriage wheels or the horses feet
Should crowd him down in the slippery street
At last came one of the merry troop,
The cheeriest girl of all the group:
She paused beside him and whispered low,
" I'll help you cross if you wish to go "
His aged hand on her strong young arm
he placed, and so, without hurt or harm,
She guided his trembling feet along
Proud that her own were firm and strong
Then back again to her friends she went
Her young heart happy and well content
" he's somebody's father, girls you know "
for all he's aged and poor and slow
And I hope some girl will lend a hand
To help MY father you understand
If ever he's poor and old and gray
When his own dear girl is " faraway
And somebody's father ' bowed low his head,
In his home that night, and the prayer he said,
God be kind to the noble girl,
" Who is somebody's daughter and pride and the world "

Dealing with the Pain
At times you feel you're all alone when troubles keep you down,
When misery loves company, but nobody's around.
When problems get the best of you, and answer's can't be found,
When giving all your best to smile, you manage just to frown.
At times you feel the pain inside is far too much to bear,
When even those you love so much are never ever there.
When you become invisible and no one seems to care,
When realizing finally, that life just isn't fair.
You feel afraid.
You feel left out.
You can't help but ask why?
If your life feels much worse then death,
Then why not simply die?
If every night you go to bed and secretly you cry,
If you can't get away from grief no matter how you try.
You feel such sorrow in your life.
You ask and ask again,
If living is a living hell, why put up with it then?
If you face all these problems that just seem to never end,
Just know no matter whom you are, you'll always have a friend.
Someone who's been through so much more than you will understand,
Someone who sacrificed his life to save his fellow man.
Someone who never lost his faith, someone who never ran,
Someone who always does for us the very most he can.
Someone who died a mockery, who paid the greatest cost,
Someone who died so painfully, nailed up against a cross.
Despite his being king of kings, the boss of every boss,
He died because he thought we were too precious to be lost.
So if you ever feel you can no longer stand the pain,
Just know you have at least one friend who's been through quite the same.
He'll always be around you there to listen, not to blame.
So if you need to talk to someone just call out his name.
And hopefully your problems will no longer seem so great,
Perhaps because you know that he gave himself for your sake.
And maybe even though you hurt you'll manage still to smile,
The fact that Jesus loves you will make everything worthwhile.

Others and ME
The good you find in others, is in you too.
The faults you find in others, are your faults as well.
After all, to recognize something you must know it.
The possibilities you see in others, are possible for you as well.
The beauty you see around you, is your beauty.
The world around you is a reflection,
A mirror showing you the person you are.
To change your world, you must change yourself.
To blame and complain will only make matters worse.
Whatever you care about, is your responsibility.
What you see in others, shows you yourself.
See the best in others, and you will be your best.
Give to others, and you give to yourself.
Appreciate beauty, and you will be beautiful.
Admire creativity, and you will be creative.
Love and you will be loved.
Seek to understand, and you will be understood.
Listen and your voice will be heard.
Show your best face to the mirror,
And you'll be happy with the face looking back at you.

Count your blessings, not your troubles,
And you'll make it through what comes along.
Within you are so many answers,
Understand, have courage, be strong.
Don't put limits on yourself,
Your dreams are waiting to be realized.
Don't leave your important decisions to chance -
Reach for your peak, your goal, and your prize.
Nothing wastes more energy than worrying -
The longer a problem is carried, the heavier it gets.
Don't take things too seriously -
Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.
Remember that a little love goes a long way -
Remember that a lot goes forever.
Remember that friendship is a wise investment,
Life's treasures are people... together.
Have health and hope and happiness,

The Difference between love and like...
In front of the person you love, your heart beats faster.
But in front of the person you like, you get happy.
In front of the person you love winter seems like spring.
But in front of the person you like, winter is just beautiful winter.
If you look into the eyes of the one you love, you blush.
But if you look into the eyes of the one you like, you smile.
In front of the person you love, you can't say everything on your mind.
But in front of the person you like, you can.
In front of the person you love, you tend to get shy.
But in front of the person you like, you can show your own self.
The person you love comes into your mind every 2 minutes.
You can't look straight into the eyes of the one you love.
But you can always smile into the eyes of the one you like.
When the one you love is crying you cry with them.
But when the one you like is crying you end up comforting.
The feeling of love starts from the eye.
And the feeling of like starts from the ear.
So if you stop liking a person you used to like, all you need to do is cover your ears.
But if you try to close your eyes, Love turns into a drop of tear and remains in your heart forever after.
Don't go for looks' it can deceive; Don't go for wealth - even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile coz' only a smile makes a dark day seem bright.
Trust & Hope you find that person.
And for all you married people - Sorry, everybody cannot be happy!
