There are times ...

"There are times in everyone's life when something constructive is born out of adversity... when things seem so bad that you've got to grab your fate by the shoulders and shake it." ~ Unknown

"There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself." ~ Lemony Snicket

"There are times when fear is good. It must keep its watchful place at the heart's controls. There is advantage in the wisdom won from pain." ~ Aeschylus  Source: Famous quotes

"There are times when words cannot express what we feel. And the little ways we try to help seem so small. Yet somehow through the love and prayers of friends, moves the almighty hand of God. May God hold you in the palm of His hand and comfort you with His everlasting love." ~ SMS Text

Last but not least... a Poem by Linda Lee Elrod for a friend.....

There are just can’t imagine how much I miss you sometimes!

Oh, I know you’re not in Timbuktu or anything, but there are times when not just anyone will do-

 Times when I really wish you were right here, right now to confided in, laugh with, and talk to.

It’s amazing how often I’ll wonder what you’d think about something or what you’d advise me to do in certain situations.

Or I’ll see something and just know that nobody else would think it’s funny or see it the same way … except you.

I guess what I want you to know is that even though we’re apart now, I still feel closer to you than I do to many people I see every day.

That’s just a fact.

And I thought it might make you feel good to know how very important you are to me… no matter where life finds either of us.
Linda Lee Elrod
