Too True, Too Often

 
Too often we don’t realize
What we have until it is gone
Too often we wait too late to say
“I’m sorry – I was wrong.”
Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones
We hold dearest to our hearts
And we allow foolish things
To tear our lives apart.
Far too many times we let
Unimportant things into our minds
And then it’s usually too late
To see what made us blind.
So be sure that you let people know
How much they mean to you
Take that time to say the words
Before your time is through.
Be sure that you appreciate
Everything you’ve got
And be thankful for the little things
in life that mean a lot.

Words of Wisdom and Inspirational Quotes

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. -[ Karen S Magee

Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.”- Dali Lama

 

Anger or hatred is like a fisherman’s hook. It is very important for us to ensure we are not caught by it.” – Dali Lama

Allowing the truth of who you are–your spiritual self–to rule your life means you stop the struggle and learn to move with the flow of your life.” – Oprah Winfrey

When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us -[Alexander Graham Bell

 

 

 

 

When things go wrong as they sometime will,

 When the road you’re trudging

 Seems all up hill,

 When funds are low,

 And the debts are high,

 And you want to smile,

 But you have to sigh,

 When care is pressing you down a bit,

 Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

 Life is queer with its twists and turns,

 As every one of us sometimes learns,

 And many a failure turns about,

 When he might have won had he stuck it out;

 Don’t give up though the pace seems slow—

 You may succeed with another blow,

 Success is failure turned inside out—

 The silver tint of the cloud of doubt,

 And you never can tell how close you are,

 It may be near when it seems so far;

 So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit;

 It’s when things seems worst that you must

 Not quit”-[Unknown

 

 

 

Life Still Has A Meaning

 

If there is a future there is time for mending-
Time to see your troubles coming to an ending.
Life is never hopeless however great your sorrow-
If you’re looking forward to a new tomorrow.
If there is time for wishing then there is time for hoping-
When through doubt and darkness you are blindly groping.
Though the heart be heavy and hurt you may be feeling-
If there is time for praying there is time for healing.
So if through your window there is a new day breaking-
Thank God for the promise, though mind and soul be aching,
If with harvest over there is grain enough for gleaning-
There is a new tomorrow and life still has meaning.

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”~ Dr. Seuss
