I smiled






                                                 I smiled, even in my sorrow 

                                                 I smiled to keep me going.
                                                        I smiled because it gave me strength.
                                                       I smiled because it helped me hide my real 
                                                    feelings.
                                                      I smiled even if I was crying.
                                                    I smiled to keep on trying.
                                                 I smiled for my kids.
                                                       I smiled for my parents and siblings.
                                                          I smiled for my friends. I even smiled for him.
                                                      I smiled when my heart was aching.
                                                I smiled when I felt lonely.
                                                   I smiled when I felt hopeless.
                                                    I smiled when I felt insecure.
                                                     I smiled when I felt I was nothing.
                                               I smiled because I have too.
                                                          I smiled because it gave me strength to change
                                                I smiled because I was done.
                                                     I smiled because I knew I deserved better
                                                  I smiled because I was out of it.
                                                 Now, I smile because I deserve it. 
                                                          I smile because I don't have to take it anymore.
                                                              I smile because life has given me a second
                                                       chance.
                                                      I smile because i want to. 
                                                                                                                                                      Tere Rodriguez-Nora

Made for...



The hands were made for talking
The eyes were made for expressing
The sight was made for admiring
Hearing was made for melody
The feet were made for dancing
The mouth was made for smiling
Sensing was made for loving

Love is joy...



Love is joy
Love is respect
Love is feeling free
Love is acceptance
Love is joy
Love is the effect of having butterflies when you wake up in the morning
Love is feeling
Love makes you smile
Love is joy
Love is when your eyes shine
Love is forgiving
Love is to care
Love is joy
Love is a fire that reigns in your heart
Love is to laugh
Love is to share
Love is joy
Love is an act of self-giving
Love is happiness
Love is unconditional
Love is joy
