Thirty Nevers

Never be shy to let those that you love
know that you love them.
Never pull back from opening your
heart to others.
Never be timid on matters of love.
Never hold a grudge, bitterness
will eat away at you.
Never judge another's looks, action,
or speech.
Never hold back on kindness
and giving.
Never refuse to return a smile.
Never be vain or full of pride.
Never claim to know the truth.
Never speak harshly.
Never look glaringly.
Never listen without hearing.
Never touch without feeling.
Never make another cry.
Never laugh at another's misfortune.
Never think there are those beneath you.
Never think there are those above you.
Never dislike yourself.
Never dislike others.
Never give up on the search for who
you really are.
Never adopt dogma.
Never follow others blindly.
Never stop trusting your inner voice.
Never hold back compassion.
Never give up on your dreams.
Never get lost in the future.
Never get stuck in the past.
Never forget there is only now.
Never put all this off until tomorrow
for tomorrow
Never comes.
Hope in Action

Hope looks for the good in people instead of harping on the worst.

Hope opens doors where despair closes them.

Hope discovers what can be done instead of grumbling about what cannot.

Hope draws its power from a deep trust

in God and in the basic goodness of mankind.

Hope "lights a candle" instead of "cursing the darkness."

Hope regards problems, small or large, as opportunities.

Hope sets big goals and is not frustrated by repeated difficulties or setbacks.

Hope accepts misunderstanding as the price for serving the greater good of others.

Hope is a good loser because it has the divine assurance of final victory.

"In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
We Who Care
(Author Unknown)


We care without thinking, we do it for love,
It comes as a gift from Heaven above,
Some are victims, whilst others must care,
These are the things we're all born to share.

We try to find reasons we can't understand,
Why these things just happened, they could never be planned,
But when they do, we obey God's command,
He never forsakes us, He takes us in hand.

It comes from the heart, it comes from the soul,
And each day that it comes is one more precious day,
We don't think that we are special, no, not even good,
We just do what anyone in our place would.

Strength & Courage

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubts.
It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.
It takes strength to share a friend's pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.
It takes strength to hide your own pain,
It takes courage to show it and deal with it.
It takes strength to stand guard,
It takes courage to let down your guard.
It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.
It takes strength to endure abuses,
It takes courage to stop them.
It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on a friend.
It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.
It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.
May you find strength and courage
in everything you do,
And may your life be filled with
Friendship and Love!

-David L. Griffith-
Hi everyone...

Hope you are all well.
Forget the rest of the song but this verse so true about us all on here.

Oh, Ill get by with a little help from my friends
Oh, Ill get high with a little help from my friends
Oh, Ill get by with a little help from my friends, my friends

Oh dear...
By the time I get down there, I've forgotten what I'm doing!
I've given up shoe-laces and gone for velcro instead!

Hi Rosemarie,
Image The song you mentioned is a Beatles song, "With a Little help from my friends", ( I had to Google the exact title) If I ever hear the song I'll remember you. Image Image

I agree it is appropriate to this forum, as everyone is so supportive and kind and it gives us so much strength.

Have a great weekend everyone and take care.

Hi Lola,

Sorry if my posting was misleading....I knew the title to the song ( I prefer the version by Wet Wet Wet Image ).I was asking you all to forget/ignore the rest of the song and concentrate on the verse but thanks a lot.

Hope you are well
Rosemary
