Don't know
whether you heard about this
but Denzel Washington and his family visited
the troops at Brook Army Medical Center, in
San Antonio,Texas (BAMC) the other day. This
is where soldiers who have been evacuated from
Germany come to be hospitalized in the United
States, especially burn victims. There are some
buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher
House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay,
for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying
in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses
on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled
most of the time.

Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave
him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how
much one of them would cost to build. He took his check
book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there
on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear
this story and want to get the word out to the American
public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.

The question I have is why does:
Alec Baldwin, Madonna, Sean Penn and other Hollywood types
make front page news with their anti-everything
America crap and Denzel Washington's Patriotism
doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of
any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San Antonio.

Mom, sometimes I find myself calling your name, even though I know you're not there.  There are so many questions I need to ask you.  I miss your touch, your smile, your cooking(smile).

My mom, she was a diabetic.  She did everything the doctors advised her to do.  She ate right, excersized, lost weight, took her meds and still, this disease took her in the end.

I will continue to support the Diabetes Foundation in the name of my mother.

I would not wish for any family to have to endure all that we did with my mother's illness.  The insulin shots, all the pills, the loss of her leg. 

Someday, we will find a way to make diabetes go away forever.  Until then, I fight!!!

My mom, special in every way.

I love you mom, now and forever.

Your loving daughter

God bless my family, and bless all my friends too 
And God there's just one more thing, I wish that you would do, 
If You don't mind me asking, to just bless my 'puter too?? 
Now I know that it's not normal to bless a small machine. 
But listen just a second, and I'll try to explain. 
You see, that little metal box holds more than odds and ends. 
Inside those small components, rest a hundred loving friends. 
Some, it's true, I've never seen and most I've never met, 
We've never shaken hands or ever truly hugged, and yet, 
I know for sure they love me, by the kindnesses they give, 
And this little scrap of metal is how I get to where they live. 
By faith is how I know them, much the same as I know you, 
I share in what life brings them, so if it's OK with you.. 
Just take an extra minute from your duties up above. 
To bless this little hunk of steel, that's filled with so much love.

The Gift Of Friends by Karin Schaefer
There are days when
bubbling from us comes
the innocent child within,
who giggles at the little things
and wears a silly grin.

There are days when
melancholy comes to
visit for a while;
the mind feels tired, the body weak;
we have no strength to smile.

There are days when
joy abundant
grabs a hold of you and me;
wraps us up in all it's splendor,
lifts us up and sets us free.

There are days when
sorrow wraps us
in its cloak of grief and fear,
'till our hearts ache to the breaking,
'till our eyes can't shed a tear.

There are days when
love bestows us
with its wonderment and light;
with its beauty and its mystery,
its power and its might.

And there are days when
life rewards us
and seems to make amends
by granting us a marvelous gift,
the precious gift of Friends.

The Friends We Meet Online

The true friends that we meet online
Are a very special kind
They pierce your shields and see within
The corners of your mind

They're always there when you need them
With their power to discern
They feel your pain.....
They offer hope and genuine concern

We bare our souls, expose our hearts
And show our inner fears
And then before you know it
The keyboard's stained with tears

And if we could see them through that screen
Then no one could deny
That to be a TRUE online friend
They too must cry

To all of my friends, thank you for your love and healing prayers.

May God bless each one of you in His own special way.

Love, Light and Peace

To Honor: Individual(s)
Location: Chicago, Illinois United States
This is tribute to my sister Cheryl.  She died of cervical cancer in 1997.  She put up a good fight but, lost the battle in the end.

She has 2 children.  Robin(16) and Thomas(15).  They are turning into wonderful adults.  They're both doing well in scholl and have jobs.

They make a fine tribute to their mom and the love she had and still has for them.

I support the Cancer Society and pray that someday ALL cancers will be no more.

I love you Cheryl and I miss you everyday.
