~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:

Never Say Never
By Terri McPherson

Your heart is never so out of tune
you cannot sing a new song.
Your light is never so tiny a spark
it cannot ignite and burn strong.

Your laughter is never so hollow
it cannot burst at the seams.
Your spirit is never so broken
you cannot rebuild all your dreams.

Your vision is never so out of focus
you cannot see your way clear.
Your courage is never so locked away
you cannot break free from your fear.

Your love is never so tiny a stream
it cannot flow with a force.
Your soul is never so drifted away
it cannot get back on its course.

Your faith is never so lost in a storm
it cannot sail high on the seas.
Your prayers are never so long forgotten
you cannot get down on your knees.

Your hope is never so far from memory
you cannot have total recall.
Your will is never so shaken and weak
you cannot survive a hard fall.

Your life is never so worthless a thing
you cannot bring dignity to it.
Your day is never so empty a void
you cannot fill up and renew it.

Your 'nevers' are never so final
you cannot reach out for the bliss,
the peace, protection and safety,
the anchor of God's sacred kiss.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

FRIENDS TOASTS

May you live to be a hundred,
and may I sing at your wake! - Rebekah M.

May you be buried in a casket
made from the wood of a 100 year old oak.....
that I shall plant tomorrow. - Brenda N.

May you live forever, and may the last words
that you hear be mine! - Tom M.

May the hinges of our friendship
Never become rusty. - Bernie D.

Here's to you, and here's to me,
Friends we'll always be!
And if perchance we don't agree,
Then forget you, and here's to me! - Linda N.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Clickety-clack

You don't need a speedometer on a train. To approximately gauge the speed, just note the number of clicks you hear in 20 seconds (not guaranteed accurate if someone nearby is using a computer mouse.) That number will be close to the speed in miles per hour.
