Gwen's Den

Thursday, October 30, 2008


I Believe... That just because two people argue, doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue, doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe...That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I Believe...That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I Believe... That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I Believe...That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I Believe...That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe... That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe...That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I Believe...That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I Believe...That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I Believe...That my best friend and I can do anything, or nothing, and have the best time.

I Believe...That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe...That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had, and what you've learned from them.....and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe...That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself. I Believe...That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe...That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

IBelieve...Two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I Believe...That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.

I Believe...That even when you think you have no more to give, if a friend cries out to will find the strength to help.

I Believe...That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe...That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

I Believe...That you should send this to all of the people that you believe in. I just did. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; They just make the most of everything.

  • Hi again Dear Gwen ~~ Thanks for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed the story of Shay and the jokes. Sorry to hear your knee is still giving you pain. I got a script for Panadol-Osteo that Robyn
    suggested and my doctor said it's good too, so I will try it soon. I'll be thinking of you on the 19th
    Best of luck with the Epidural Steroid Injection - let's hope it helps a lot. Take care,Love, Merle.

  • G'day Gwen,

    I believe...I agree with your words of wisdom today. It's difficult to pick out a favorite, but the one I believe...I especially liked was...

    "I believe...That my best friend and I can do anything, or nothing, and have the best time."

    Don't you find that so true, you can be together and just set and talk or not, but you are always comfortable with each other no matter what you do together.

    Gwen, I hope this fines you feeling well and happy, as you mess around in your Den!

  • Hi Gwen -- We have just returned from a ten day cruise on the Queen Mary 2.

    I have started to blog again now after a two week break (did put on a poem on the other blog yesterday). I hope I can keep up now but it may still be slow going for me.
    -->So come see me at Jim's Little Blog <--

  • Gwen, this is my final tribute to a lovely and wonderful lady. I was feeling that you had priorities other than blogging lately.
    A late thanks to you for keeping up with me on my blog and leaving an occassional posting 'hello.'
    I loved your sense of humor along with your love for your fellow people.

    May God bless your family, watch, and take care of them now that you are not here with them in body.
    I also thank Him for leading me to know you through the ether. You have been a blessing to me and to so many others.
    May you rest in peace with Him now.
