Today Is A Gift; That’s Why They Call It The Present

To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart. Anger is only one letter short of danger. If someone betrays you once, it is his fault; if he betrays you twice, it is your fault. Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. He who loses money loses much; he who loses a friend loses much more; he who loses faith loses all. Beautiful young people are accidents of nature but beautiful old people are works of art. Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself. There is no beginning or end. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift; that’s why they call it the present.

Dear God,
Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy
