When certain friends enter my life, I literally can’t help but continually thank God for such a wonderful precious unexpected blessing. My Creator knows how to make me feel His love so strongly through the love of my beautiful friends. 

I think you should know that any time I begin to feel hateful towards someone or something, I think of you and my thoughts quiet and my heart calms, and I remember how you always look for the good in everyone. It’s a hard thing to do for a cynic like me, but I’m trying really hard to see the bright side of life.

You are one of my many inspirations daily. Thank you for having the trust to love someone like me. Someone who doesn’t have it all figured out. I promise I’ll always continue to try my best.

Thank you.
I love you and miss you dearly.

“A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.”

“Though it makes me anxious at times to think of how quickly the calendar pages turn, I am deeply thankful for all of the stories of new friendship and experiences written atop them. Life really is always offering the opportunity to seize the day, rain or shine. I’ve now learned that it is fully in the beholder’s hands to respond.”

“And in the end I think I’ve learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I’ve even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don’t travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I’ve deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.”
