Sharing With You

This was sent to me with beautiful pictures by a e-mail friend. Due to the length, I am just sharing the poem itself with all of you. It will save me from sending it out 3,489 times to each of you individually.

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we live!
Have a seat. Relax . . .
And read this slowly.

I Believe… 

That we don’t have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.
     
 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 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.

I Believe…
That you should send this to
All of the people that you believe in.
I just did.

‘The happiest of people don’t necessarily have
The best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.”
