What Do You Believe?

(The following is just one of those things going around in emails I thought you might like.)

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 with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe*...
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

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 you.

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 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 samething
and see something totally different.

I Believe*...
That your life can be changed in a matter ofhours
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.

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

Thank you God for all the wonderful people
who help us throughout the journey of life..
May Angels guard you and guide you.

(Thanks Pat for sending this along.)
