I Believe…

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we live!
Have a seat. Relax . . .
and read this slowly.

I Believe…
That just because two people argue,
It doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. And just because they don’t argue, It doesn’t mean they do love each other.

I Believe…
That we don’t have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.

I Believe….
That no matter how good a friend is,
they’re going to hurt you, every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe…..
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.

I Believe…
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

I Believe….
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe…
That sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe…
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them, and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I Believe…..
That it isn’t always enough, to be forgiven by others. Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe…
That no matter how bad your heart is broken, the world doesn’t stop for your
grief.

I Believe….
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe…
That you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I Believe….
Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I Believe…
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.

I Believe…
That even when you think you have no more to give, When a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I Believe…
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe…
That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I Believe…
That you should share this with all of the people that you believe in.

I just did.
‘The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.

Number 8 Men have two emotions:
Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich.
Number 7 Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day,
teach a person to use the internet

lying in hospitals dying of nothing.
