Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why its called the present.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~"A SMILE"~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive
without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it,
and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
