    "When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint
    her
    toenails anymore.

    So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got
    arthritis too. That's love."

    And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked
    about a
    contest he was asked to judge.

    The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

    The winner was a four year old child whose n ext door neighbor was an
    elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

    Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the ! old g
    entleman's
    yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

    When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy
    said,

    "Nothing, I just helped him cry"

    When there is nothing left but God that is when you find out that God
    is all
    you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is simply
    say the
    following small prayer for the person who sent you this.

    Father, God bless all my friends in whatever it is that you know they
    may
    need this day! And may their life be full of your peace, prosperity and
    power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with you. Amen.


    I hope all my "family" here has a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. :)
