(Outside of a card)
No matter how much two people love each other, there are going to be times when they end up hurting one another...
we have made some mistakes, but maybe we can learn from them and become more sensitive
to each other's feelings and needs and move to compromise when we disagree...
I hope we can put the past behind us and concentrate on making what we have together even better, even stronger...

(Inside of a card)
I really want to try, because, more than anything else, I still believe in us and in the special love we share.


Love is giving a chance to a person, when their are no more chances to give.


My Love For You

When I look into your eyes I can see your love and pain.
When I hold you in my arms, don't you know I feel the same.
Nothing last's forever. But never mind our differences, we still can find a way.

When you came to love me, you took away my pain.
I know I'm hard to live with, but angel please remain.
and I hope you still would love me, when there's no one else to blame.
Don't you know I'd walk beside you, even through the pouring rain.

I know there's someone better, and I sometimes cause you pain, and if something's
gone all wrong, then I usually I am to blame.
But angel please remember, my love for you is still the same.
And nothing lasts forever, even in the pouring rain.

-- By Matt Weidner May 1992 ....very similar to the song lyrics by Guns N' Roses titled "November Rain"


I am strong because I am weak. I'm beautiful because I know my flaws. I'm a love because I am a fighter. I'm fearless because I have been afraid. I'm wise because I have been foolish. And I can laugh because I have known sadness.

Life is to give, not to take

-- From 1935 Movie "Les Miserable" Directed by Richard Boleslavsky

The only inheritance that a man will leave that has eternal value, is in his influence

Reputation is what men say about you on your tombstone;
Character is what the Angels say about you before the throne of God

If I take care of my character, my reputation will take care of itself

-- D.L. Moody

The little choices we must make will chart the course of the life we take.

A True Friend  (My One and Only True Best Friend -  Charles Ingenthorn)

A friend is one who's on your side
someone in whom you can confide.
One who consoles you when you're sad
and turns depressing days to glad.

A friend is there through thick and thin, caring, concerned and genuine.
A special someone with the gift
to give your heavy heart a lift.

When you're down and in despair a faithful friend is always there.
They do not scold or reprimand and always seem to understand.
So if you have but one true friend to be there for you to the end,
Thank the Lord and say a prayer - You are richer than a millionaire.

One definition of a friend - Someone who knows you....and care about you anyway

This is a promise - You are my friend and I hope you know that's true. No matter what happens I will stand by you. I'll be there for you whenever you need. To lend you a hand to do a good deed. So just call on me when you need me my friend. I will always be there even to the end.

Perhaps our former relationships were born out of loss, need and loneliness; genuine intimacy will grow out of honesty connecting with others

Good friends are like starts....you don't always see them, but you know they are there.

Life is not made by the dreams that you dream, but by the Choices you make.

Wherever you go, go as a leader.

Whenever you dream, dream with your all.
And innovate and never give up.
