Oprah Winfey said-“Be thankful for what you have: you will end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
One gets out of a thing what one puts into it!!!,
Share a Smile
Listen ! Can you hear it? The laughter that eases pain, Feel it! Swirl around you, The warmth of caring once again.
Reach out! And we will guide you, Into our special world of fun, Share it, for it's contagious, It can be had by everyone.
Find it! But do not keep it, Pass it on to all you know, What is it? It's, "Share A Smile." Plant the seed and watch it grow.

I Wish That God Would Wait
I will beg you not to leave us,
I will plead with you to stay,
I will cry cause it's not fair,
God moves in a mysterious way.
Why you? I do not understand.
His ways aren’t clear to me,
How could He take the best there is,
It simply cannot be.
I love you for your goodness,
For your cheerfulness and care,
And when I need assurance,
You were always there.
I hope I said the right things,
To let you know you’re great,
How much I really love you,
And I wish that God would wait.

One morning while I was at my doctors appointment - he was checking a rather large lump in my breast as cancer was suspected. Before he started his exam he asked "May I bring in a student from the hospital to see what I am doing?" Having no problem with that I said "Yes of course." I was surprised to see a tall young man young enough to be my son, walk in. While we were talking I mentioned that in the afternoon I was going for an autopsy. The doctor said "You are doing what?" I repeated myself and said 'I was going for my autopsy." I could hear the student snickering and my doctor trying to hold back his laughter as he reached for my hand and said, "Chris if you are going for an autopsy you will not need the biopsy you are booked for this afternoon!." When I realized what I said we all laughed, "So now I will finish the needle aspiration you are here for okay?" As he was removing some fluids from the lump he repeated several times," Oh my, o my!" I asked what was wrong? "Nothing" he said "I would have bet my license on the fact you had cancer but I have just removed a large amount of fluid which is a good sign, you can cancel your autopsy for this afternoon." he said, with a smile and I started to cry, these were tears of relief and happiness. Silently I said "Thank you God!" I know one doesn't usually hug their doctor but I hugged them both neither of them minded. I cried all the way home knowing I had a family who would also be relieved and happy.
