I just got this from a friend who has type 1 diabetes - I hope you enjoy it.. No need to pass it on unless you want to of course.....


A Birth Certificate shows that we were born

A Death Certificate shows that we died

Pictures show that we lived!

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 it's taking me a long time to become the person I
want to be.

I believe..... That you should always leave loved ones and friends with loving
words. It may be the last time you see them.

I believe ... That you can keep going long after you think you

I believe .... That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how
we feel.

I believe .. That either you control your attitude or it controls

I believe .... That heroes are the people who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I believe.... That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe..... That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing
and have the best time.

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

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 whom 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 send this to all of the people that you
believe in. I just did.

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the best of everything they have.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass,
it's about learning to dance in the rain."
