You Belong to Me – Shrek

Posted by mopsky on September 27, 2007

You Belong to Me

See the pyramids around the Nile
Watch the sun rise
From the tropic isle
Just remember darling
All the while
You belong to me
See the market place
In old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember
When a dream appears
You belong to me

And I’ll be so alone without you
Maybe you’ll be lonesome too

Fly the ocean
In a silver plane
See the jungle
When it’s wet with rain
Just remember till
You’re home again
You belong to me

Oh I’ll be so alone without you
Maybe you’ll be lonesome too

Fly the ocean
In a silver plane
See the jungle
When it’s wet with rain
Just remember till
You’re home again
You belong to me

Best Friends Are Forever!

I sit alone thinking of you
and all the things we’ve both been through
You are my soul mate, my very best friend
and i know you’ll be there until the end

Your shoulder to cry on will soon be gone
who will be there when something is wrong
when times are tough you’re always there
It shows me just how much you care

Although were going separate ways
you’re in my heart till my final days
nothing can make a person see
how special a friend you are to me

I dreamed of a friend just like you
and finally my dream came true
noting else could ever fulfill
everything you’re friendship will

You understand a side of me
that no one else could ever see
you know whats wrong before i cry
but if I do, you will always know why

A friend like you is hard to find
you put my problems all behind
you were there when no one cared
the best times were the ones we shared

We’ve been together through good and bad
you made me laugh when i was sad
and no one else could ever be
as good of a friend you are to me

Our time together is wilting away
more and more everyday
but now until the very end
you’ll always be my special friend.

The Donkey

Posted by mopsky on September 17, 2007

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well
needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

*MORAL :
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

*Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.
2. Free your mind from worries – Most never happen.
3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less

Wealth is More Than Money

Posted by mopsky on September 16, 2007

As I See It…

One day a wealthy family man took his son on a trip to the country so he could have his son see how poor country people were, and could appreciate what they, themselves, had. They stayed one day and one night in the farm of a very humble farm house. At the end of the trip and back home the father asked the son: “What did you think of the trip?”

The son replied: “Very nice Dad.”

Father: “Did you noticed how poor they were?”

Son: “Yes.”

Father: “What did you learn?”

Son: “I learned that we have one dog in the house…and they have four. We have a fountain in the garden and they have a stream that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden, they have the stars. Our garden goes to the edge of our property, they have the entire horizon as their backyard.”

At the end of the son’s reply the father was speechless and his son added: “Thank you dad for showing me how poor we really are.”

Isn’t it true that all depends on the crystal you use to see life?

Eight Friendship Gifts

Posted by admin on September 15, 2007

1. THE GIFT OF LISTENING…
But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, no planning your response. Just listening.

2. THE GIFT OF AFFECTION…
Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds. Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.

3. THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER…
Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, “I love to laugh with you.”

4. THE GIFT OF A WRITTEN NOTE…
It can be a simple “Thanks for the help” note or a full sonnet. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life

5. THE GIFT OF A COMPLIMENT…
A simple and sincere, “You look great in red,” “You did a super job” or “That was a wonderful meal” can make someone’s day.

6. THE GIFT OF A FAVOR…
Every day, go out of your way to do something kind.

7. THE GIFT OF SOLITUDE…
There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.

8. THE GIFT OF A CHEERFUL DISPOSITION…
The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone, really it’s not that hard to say, Hello or Thank You.

Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us.
