A Friend should be Radical;
They should love you when you're unlovable,
Hug you when you're unhuggable,
A bear you when you're unbearable.

A Friend should be Fanaticall
They should cheer when the whole world boos,
Dance when you get good news,
And cry when you cry too.

But most of all,
A Friend should be Mathematical,
They should multiply the joy,
Divide the sorrow,
Subtract the past,
And add to tomorrow,
Calculate the need deep in your heart,
And always be bigger than the sum of all
their parts.

God didn't promise days without pain,
Laughter without sorrow,
Sun without rain,
But HE did promise strength for the day,
Comfort for the tears,
And light for the way.


Take care of those who took care of you, we all
will be known by the tracks that we leave behind.

A real friend is one who, when you've made a
fool of yourself, doesn't feel that you've done
a permanent job.  

Do all the good you can
By all the means you can
In all the ways you can
In all the places you can
At all the times you can
To all the people you can
As long as ever you can


When I was in my younger days,
I weighed a few pounds less,
I needn't hold my tummy in to
wear a belted dress.

But now that I am older,
I've set my body free;
There's comfort of elastic
where once my waist would be.

Inventor of those high-heeled shoes
my feet have not forgiven;
I have to wear a nine now;
But used to wear a seven.

And how about those pantyhose--
They're sized by weight, you see
So how come when I put them on,
the crotch is at my knees?

I need to wear these glassess
as the prints were getting smaller;
And it wasn't very long ago
I know that I was taller.

Though my hair has turned to silver
and my skin no longer fits;
On the inside, I'm the same old me,
Just the outside's changed a bit.

Do the very best that you can
and leave the outcome to God


Hello God, I called tonight
To talk a little while
I need a friend who'll listen
To my anxiety and trial....

You see, I cann't quite make it
Through a day just on my own
I need you love to guild me,
So I'll never feel alone.

I want to ask you please to keep,
My family safe and sound,
Come fill their lives with confidence
For whatever fate they're bound.

Give me faith, dear God, to face
Each hour through out the day,
And not to worry over things
I can't change in any way.

I thank you God, for being home
And listening to my call,
For giving me such good advice
When I stumble and fall.

Your number, God, is the only one
That answers every time.
I never get a busy signal,
Never had to pay a dime.

So thank you, God, for listening
To my troubles and my sorrows.

Sometimes our light goes out,
but is blown into a flame by another human being.
Each of us owes our deepest thanks to those who
have rekindled this light.
