Eyes That Can See.
No matter what moment, nor even the place
Beauty is evident, in everyone’s face.
Goodness is seen, through eyes that can see
A reason for bad times, and why they must be.
In apite of how harsh or painful the scene

To focus our minds, to search for the good
Amid the destruction, the misunderstood.
We all have the power, to make our life bright
To fly with the eagles, to light up the night.
Though pain and despair lurks in our life
You must not allow it to turn into strife.

That makes your heart happy, keeps your hopes new.<><><><>
This is my secret, that I want to share
With all that I meet, for those whom I care.

got stuck up there and we called the fire brigade.
The brigade send a unit round and then the fireman goes up the ladder
and is carrying her down when she panics and scratches him, and he lets her fall.
She lands on the pavement and is badly injured.
We rush her to the vet, who operates on her, but unfortunately he can’t save her
and your cat passes away.
“That’s how you break bad news.”
The brother in the States says: “ OK, I understand.”
Then the guy in Europe says, “By the way, how’s Mum?”
His brother in the States says, “Well, she’s on the
