Why not Today
One smile, can start a friendship.
One word, can end a fight.
One look, can save a relationship.
One person can change your life.
I’m human. I have weaknesses, I make mistakes, and I experience sadness; but I learn from all these things and they make me a better person.
You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.
Thank you to every person who has ever told me I can’t. You are just another reason I will.
It’s not about having the skill to do something. It’s about having the will, desire and commitment to be your best.
Start every day with a new hope, leave bad memories behind and have faith for a better tomorrow.
Don’t fear failure. Believe in yourself and create your own destiny.
Never let the sadness of your past and the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present!
Every struggle you had in your life shaped you into the person you are today. Be thankful for the hard times they can only make you stronger
2 Timothy 2:22
So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
And have mercy on those who doubt

The Old Man, His Wife And The Doctor
I am a doctor working at a little clinic. At about 8:15am on a Tuesday morning, an old man in his 80’s walked into my clinic to get out some stitches he received a few days before.
It was a very busy morning, and I asked him to please sit and wait. He told me he was in a rush, as he had a very important engagement at 9am he couldn’t miss. As he sat there, I couldn’t help noticing that he kept checking his watch. I decided to treat him since the doctor in charge was extremely busy, and I knew it would take at least an hour until he could see him.
I took off his bandages and saw that the wound was healing nicely. While I was gently pulling out the stitches, I asked him where he was off to that was more important than taking out stitches. Was it also with a doctor?
“No,” said the old man, “not a doctor. I am going to have breakfast with my wife, who is in the hospital.”
“Why was she hospitilized, if I may ask?”
“She’s been there for a few years now,” he answered. “she has Alzheimer’s and needs constant care.”
As I finished taking out the stitches, I asked the man if his wife would be worried if he were late to their breakfast.
“No,” he said quietly, “and she never will. She hasn’t recognized me in over five years.”
I was astounded by this and just had to ask: “And you go to her every morning although she doesn’t know who you are?”
The man smiled, put his hand on mine and said: “She may not know who I am, but I know who she is, and I remember for both of us.” And he shook my hand, thanked me and left me standing there, my body shaking with sudden emotion.
“This,” I said to myself, “this is what true love, movie love, is all about. This is what I want for myself.” And I vowed, at that moment, to find such love.
