I know this is breaking the norm (utilizing a new viral video), but it is too good not too share and something my Mom would definitely share with everyone.
Her positive attitude and thoughtfulness to think of other kids going through this is truly amazing.
“I am brave and you can be brave also”
“If you have cancer, don’t worry,” says the 5-year-old in the video. “‘Cause I am brave and you can be brave also.”
In honor of my mother on her Birthday, something I will never forget…..her Smile!
“You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she’d want:
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”
David Harkins quotes (British Poet and Painter b.1958)
I knocked at heaven’s door this morning.
God asked me…’My child, what can I do for you?’
And I said, ‘Father, please protect and bless the person reading this message.’
God smiled and answered…’Request granted’.
If you believe, send this.
By doing this, you have succeeded in praying for people today.
‘Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.’

A three-year-old boy was examining his testicles while taking a bath.
“Mom”, he asked, “are these my brains?”
“Not yet,” she replied.
