Special People

       The special people in this world 
       are the most precious
       and the most appreciated people of all. 
       No matter what happens, 
       they always seem to understand.  
       They go a million miles out of their way.  
       They hold your hand.
       They bring you smiles, 
       when a smile is exactly what you need. 
       They listen 
       and they hear what is said 
       in the spaces between the words.  
       They care, 
       and they let you know 
       you're in their prayers.
       Special people 
       always know the perfect thing to do. 
       They can make your whole day 
       just by saying something 
       that no one else could have said.  
       Sometimes you feel like 
       they share with you a secret language 
       that others can't tune into.
       Special people 
       can guide you, 
       inspire you, 
       comfort you, 
       and light up your life with laughter. 
       Special people 
       understand your moods and nurture your needs,
       and they lovingly know 
       just what you're after.
       When your feelings come from deep inside 
       and the need to be spoken to someone; 
       you don't have to 
       hide from, 
       you share them... 
       with special people.
       When good news comes, 
       special people 
       are the first ones you turn to, 
       and when feelings overflow 
       and tears need to fall, 
       special people 
       help you through it all.
       Special people 
       bring sunlight into your life.
       They warm your world with their presence,
       whether they are far away or close by your side.
       Special people 
       are gifts that bring happiness,
       and treasures that money can't buy.

Our Greatest Fear

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves.  Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented,
Actually, who are you NOT to be?
You are a Child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't
feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not in just some of us:  It is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other perople
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others.

--Marianne Williamson

Make the Most of each Day

Today outside my window a new day I see;
And only I can determine what kind of day it will be.

It can be busy and sunny, laughing and gay,
Or boring and cold, unhappy and gray.
My own state of mind is the determining key,
For I am only the person I let myself be.

I can be thoughtful and do all I can to help,
Or be selfish and think just of myself.
I can enjoy what I do and make it seem fun,
Or gripe and complain and make it hard on everyone.

I can be patient with those who may not understand,
Or belittle and hurt them as much as I can.
But I have faith in myself, and believe what I say;
And I personally intend to make the best of each day.
