I Believe

I have had too much craziness to be able to post. So, I thought I would share this that I found on my friend Melia's blog. Thanks for sharing!

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 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.

'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything.'
(this was not written by me, However I do believe them all to be true!)
So Share with me some of the things you believe

Hey Barbie! Good to see you on here. I found this in my email one day. I just loved it too. I'm glad you posted it . I can never read it enough. Your family is getting so big!!! I'm feeling really old! :)

I saw this on her blog too, it really has a great message. As far as collages, they are easier than you think. First you have to download Picasa from the internet onto your computer (the one you store your pictures on). Then you follow the instructions from Picasa. It just takes some time to play around with it. If I can do it, ANYONE can!!! Call me if you get stuck.

I believe that if you eat churros everyday for a month that sooner or later your pants won't fit.....I speak frome experience!

Thanks for the great message!

Hi Barbi-
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I decided that it would be easier for me to take our family pic than find someone...plus, I think it's fun, so we set up the tripod and away we go! You and I have the same nativity. The little painted wooden one. I've had it for years. I can't remember where I got it. i think I ordered it through a friend, who had a friend who painted them. Have a great day!
