    "My girl got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and children. She lost 30 pounds and weighted about 90 pounds. She got very skinny and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the mornings and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of a break up. Her beauty was leaving her somewhere, she had bags under her eyes, she was poking her head, and stopped taking care of herself. She refused to shoot the films and rejected any role. I lost hope and thought that we’ll get separated soon… But then I decided to act. After all I’ve got the MOST Beautiful Woman on earth. She is the idol of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her. I began to shower her with flowers, kisses and compliments. I surprised and pleased her every minute. I gave her a lot of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe it, but she blossomed. She became better. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much.

    And then I realized one thing: the woman is the reflection of her man.

    If you love her to the point of madness, she will become it."

    Police Officer David Harriman went above and beyond the call of duty after a woman crashed her car into a Massachusetts lake, trapping her dog in the vehicle. Harriman didn't think twice about diving in to save the terrified dog.

    Bet this is the first time you've seen a dog in a yearbook before. Rachel and Taxi have been inseparable for the last four years, ever since Taxi became Rachel's seizure alert dog. Rachel was born with a brain abnormality and has experienced epileptic seizures since birth. Taxi, who attends class with Rachel every single day and goes everywhere with her, alerts family and teachers when Rachel is about to experience a seizure. Taxi is an invaluable part of Rachel's family, and to her school life.

    I think it is cool that the dog is a Doberman - these dogs are often trained to be mean guard dogs, but I knew one years ago who was so vicious when she needed to be, but so loving with those she trusted. This is a great story.

    I was two years old when my parents divorced. I was thousands and thousands of miles away from my father geographically and emotionally. I've made a lot of mistakes in my life-seeking acceptance and love. Always believing somehow, someday things would right themselves between us. He died unexpectedly last August.

    Every day is a gift-don't wait for tomorrow to make things right with someone.

    This song is about the love of a father for his daughter. Something I held out for and yearned for all my life.

    If you are a parent, be there for your children and make them know they are unconditionally loved-it will impact every aspect of their lives.

    Every single father should have to hear this song upon the birth of his child... :sorrow:

    Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month. The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:

    Dear God,

    Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
    I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.

    Love, Meredith

    We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.

    Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, 'To Meredith' in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, 'When a Pet Dies.' Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note:

    Dear Meredith,

    Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her right away.

    Abbey isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.

    Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I'm easy to find. I am wherever there is love.

    Love, God

    This is one of my favorite Baha'i tablets especially when something happens that leaves asking God why.
