Never Have Regrets

Never Have Regrets



Think about this. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.



1. There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.



2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.



3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.



4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.



5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.



6. You mean the world to someone.



7. You are special and unique.



8. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.



9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.



10. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look.



11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.



So...If you are a loving friend, send this to everyone, including the
one that sent it to you. If you get it back, then they really do love
you.

NEVER HAVE REGRETS!!!!



"FRIENDS ARE ANGELS WHO LIFT US TO OUR FEET

WHEN OUR WINGS HAVE TROUBLE."

Never If

>> Never say I love you,
>>If you don't really care.
>>Never talk of feelings,
>>If they aren't really there.
>>Never hold my hand,
>>If you mean to break my heart.
>>Never say forever,
>>If you ever plan to part.
>>Never look into my eyes,
>>If you're telling me a lie.
>>Never say hello,
>>If you plan on saying "bye"!
>>Never say that I'm THE one,
>>If you dream of more than me.
>>Never lock up my heart,
>>If you don't have the key!

Only in America

1. Only in America...can a pizza get to your house
faster than an ambulance.

2. Only in America...are there handicap parking places
in front of a skating rink...

3. Only in America...do drugstores make the sick walk
all the way to the back of the store to get their
prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes
at the front.

4. Only in America...do people order double cheese
burgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

5. Only in America...do banks leave safe doors open
and then chain the pens to the counters.

6. Only in America...do we leave cars worth thousands
of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in
the garage.

7. Only in America..do we use answering machines to
screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't
miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in
the first place.

8. Only in America...do we buy hot dogs in packages of
ten and buns in packages of eight.

9. Only in America...do we use the word "politics" to
describe the process so well: "Poli" in Latin meaning
"many" and "tics" meaning "bloodsucking creatures."

10. Only in America...do they have drive-up ATM
machines with Braille lettering..

Perspective

One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can be.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the

father asked his son, "How was the trip?" "It was great, Dad." "Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked.



"Oh Yeah" said the son.



"So what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.



The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four."



"We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a

creek that has no end."



"We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at

night."



"We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go

beyond our sight."



"We buy our food, but they grow theirs."



"We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them."



With this the boy's father was speechless.



Then his son added, "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are."



Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don't

have.



It is all based on one's perspective. Take joy in ALL you have, especially

your family and friends.

Wait For The Brick


A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door! He slammed on the brakes and drove the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown. The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up against a parked car, shouting, "What was that all about and who are you?
Just what the heck are you doing?
That's a new car and that brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money.
Why did you do it?"
The young boy was apologetic. "Please mister ... please, I'm sorry... I didn't know what else to do," he pleaded.
"I threw the brick because no one else would stop..."
With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a spot just around a parked car.
"It's my brother," he said.
"He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up."

Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive, "Would you please help me get him back into his wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me."
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling lump in his throat. He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took out his fancy handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay.

"Thank you and may God bless you," the grateful child told the stranger.
Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the little boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk toward their home. It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side door. He kept the dent there to remind him of this message: Don't go through life so fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!
God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts. Sometimes when we don't have time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us.
It's our choice: Listen to the whisper ... or wait for the brick!

Puppies for Sale


A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the pups and set about Nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he Felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the Eyes of a little boy.
Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."
"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, "these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."
The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
"Sure," said the farmer.
And with that he let out a whistle,"Here,Dolly!" he called.
Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight.
As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse. Slowly another little ball appeared; this One noticeably smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....
"I want that one," the little boy said, pointing to the runt.
The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would."
With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself To a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the farmer, he said, "You see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need Someone who understands."
The world is full of people who need someone who understands.
