Sometimes we need to Realize
Be the same. In warm and cold, in light and dark, alone and in a crowd. Just seek and do the right things. Pass on praise and accept blame.
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 & commitment to be your best.
And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles
Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor
Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
Day after day, ordinary people become heroes through extraordinary and selfless actions to help their neighbors.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell
Sometimes you have to be selfish to be selfless.
Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment.

“Paid in full with one glass of milk
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.
He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”
“You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”
He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”
As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.
Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.
Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.
She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:
“Paid in full with one glass of milk”
