BC: “May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human enough hope to make you happy.”
1: THE WEDDING OF | A circle of friendship is bound together, by sharing good moments and Life’s stormy weather: And should you feel lonely you needn’t pretend; surrender your false pride and lean on a friend. A circle of friendship is a growing delight; it helps dispel sadness, as it lets in the ‘light.’ A circle of friendship warms you in its glow; take that warmth with you and feel the ‘love’ grow. You stand in a circle with hands reaching out; the giving of yourself, is what friendship’s about!
2: Hold on for your loved ones, hold on for yourself. God will take you when he needs you. Until then make the most of what you have. Give the most that you can, love the best you can, And never lose hope.
3: "When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place." | Never, never, never give up.
4: Friends | “Don't be discouraged. It's often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.”
7: “Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.”
8: "Tough times never last, but tough people do."
10: "Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."
12: "I have a hand, and you have another; put them together and we have each other." | "A friend in need is a friend indeed."
15: "Stay Strong"
22: The Tammy Tale Once upon a time in the land of Hart there was a group of accountants who were a class apart. They were kept in the cellar of a grand old house and were occasionally known to grumble & grouse. They worked, worked , worked but had no time for the files and soon they were trapped by the towering piles! At this time Queen Marlene stood up to say I know just the person... let's call right away And that is how our Tammy came to arrive at Community Solutions and Boy! Did she thrive! So while Congratulations we'd all like to cheer it was our selfish hope she would always be here! We'll Miss you! Tonya, Pat, Stella, Olga, Yelena, MaryLou, Sherry, Rich, Angie, Jen C, Susan, Marlene, Jen O, Sam, Bob, Nancy, Terri, Sean, & Madelyn
25: When it hurts to look back and your scared to look ahead you can look beside you and your friend will be there.
26: " It is not easy to live life sometimes And face the world with a smile when you're crying inside. It takes a lot of courage to reach down inside yourself, Hold on to that strength that's still there, And know that tomorrow is a new day-with new possibilities. But if you can just hold on long enough to see this through, You'll come out a new person-stronger, With more understanding and with a new pride in yourself From knowing you made it."
29: " Stay strong stay strong through the night, to thine own self be true. never do change, and always remain you. for god made you special and gave you something no one else can take away. he doesn't want you to hide that gift it is to be used everyday. so stay standing when your legs feel weak and when the world seems all wrong. when people try to tear you down, leap up and say i will stay strong."
