This is the story of Robby.
He was a young boy who lived with his elderly
Mother. His mother wanted him to learn how to play the piano because she
Longed to hear her son play for her. She sent her son to a piano teacher who
Took Robby in under her guidance .
However, there was one small problem
Because Robby was not musically inclined and therefore was very slow in
The teacher did not have much faith in the boy because of his
Weakness. The mother was very enthusiastic and every week she would send
Robby to the teacher.
One day Robby stopped attending the piano lessons. The teacher thought that
He had given up and in fact she was quite pleased since she did not give
Much hope to Robby. Not long after, the piano teacher was given the task to
Organize a piano concert in town. She sent out circulars to invite the
Students and public to attend the event.
Suddenly, she received a call from
Robby who offered to take part in the concert. The teacher told Robby that
He was not good enough and that he was no longer a student since he had
Stopped coming for lessons.
Robby begged her to give him a chance and
Promised that he would not let her down.
Finally, she gave in and she put him to play last, hoping that he will
Change his mind at the last minute. When the big day came, the hall was
Packed and the children gave their best performance. Finally,
It was Robby's
Turn to play and as his name was announced, he walked in. He was not in
Proper attire and his hair was not properly groomed.
The teacher was really
Nervous since Robby's performance could spoil the whole evening's brilliant
As Robby started playing the crowd became silent and was amazed
At the skill of this little boy. In fact, he gave the best performance of
The evening. At the end of his presentation the crowd and the piano teacher
Gave him a standing ovation. The crowd asked Robby how he managed to play so
With a microphone in front of him, he said, "I was not able to
Attend the weekly piano lessons as there was no one to send me because my
Mother was sick with cancer. She just passed away this morning and I wanted
Her to hear me play. You see, this is the first time she is able to hear me
Play because when she was alive she was deaf and now I know she is listening
To me. I have to play my best for her!"
This is indeed a touching story of love and excellence. When you have a
Passion and a reason to do something, you will surely excel. You may not be
Talented or gifted but if you have a strong enough reason to do something,
You will be able to tap into your inner God given potential.
" Find the good. It's all around you. Find it, showcase it and you'll start
Believing in it."

This is the story of Robby.
Since a very long time ago, people have searched for the meaning of love.
But even the great philosophers, with their profound definitions, could not
fully touch its true essence. In a survey of 4-8 year olds, kids share their
views on love. But what do little kids know about love? Read on and be
surprised that despite their young and innocent minds, kids already have a
simple but deep grasp of that four-letter word.
" Love is that first feeling you feel before all the bad stuff gets in the
"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."
" When someone loves you, the way she says your name is different. You know
that your name is safe in her mouth."
"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and
they go out and smell each other."
"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries
without making them give you any of theirs."
"Love is when someone hurts you. And you get so mad but you don't yell at
him because you know it would hurt his feelings."
" Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before
giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."
" Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing,
you still want to be together and you talk more. My mommy and daddy are like
that. They look gross when they kiss but they look happy and sometimes they
dance in the kitchen while kissing."
"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening
presents and listen."
" If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who
"Love is hugging. Love is kissing. Love is saying no."
" When you tell someone something bad about yourself and you're scared she
won't love you anymore. But then you get surprised because not only does she
still love you, she loves you even more ."
" There are 2 kinds of love. Our love. God's love. But God makes both kinds
"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday."
" Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends
even after they've know each other so well."
"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and scared. I looked at all the
people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one
doing that. I wasn't scared anymore."
" Love is-if you hold hands and sit beside each other in the cafeteria. That
means you're in love. Otherwise, you can sit across from each other and be
"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else kissing me
to sleep at night."
" Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken."
"Don't feel so bad if you don't have a boyfriend. There's lots of stuff you
can do without one."
" Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is
handsomer than Robert Redford."
"If you want somebody to love you, then just be yourself. Some people try to
act like somebody else, somebody the boy likes better. I think the boy isn't
being very good if he does this to you and you should just find a nicer boy.
" Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all
"When you're born and see your mommy for the first time.
" Love is what makes people hide in the dark corners of movie theaters."
"Love goes on even when you stop breathing and you pick up where you left
off when you reach heaven."
" My enemies taught me how to love."
"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes
and has to go out and buy new ones."
" You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean
it, you should say it a lot. People forget."
"You have to fall in love before you get married. Then when you're married,
you just sit around and read books together."
" I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says she only picks on me
because she loves me. So I pick on my baby sister because I love her."
"Love cards like Valentine's cards say stuff on them that we'd like to say
ourselves, but we wouldn't be caught dead saying."
" When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars
come out of you."
"Love is when mommy sees daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's
" You never have to be lonely. There's always somebody to love, even if it's
just a squirrel or a kitten."
"You can break love, but it won't die."

Your Eyes :
1. For great looking eyes make sure to use powder shadows for a natural look
and a eyeliner pencil for drama at night. Make sure the liner has a smudge
tip at one end to get that smoky eye look. Only line the top of the eye is
you're looking tired. You don't want to bring more attention to dark circles
under the eyes. Neutral tones with a hint of color are flattering on
2. For sheen on the eyelids, dab a bit of Vaseline for a pretty reflective
quality, as well as moisture.
3. Open up the eye with a gold/beige shimmery high lighter onto the brow
4. Don't throw away cash on an expensive eye makeup remover! Find a pretty
glass bottle and fill it with baby shampoo.
5. If your cream eye shadow dries out, use a few drops of water or mineral
oil to soften it up again.
5. Potatoes, like cucumbers, will reduce the appearance of dark, under-eye
Your Lips :
1. Use blush as a lipstick, then use clear gloss or lip balm over it. Longer
2. Natural ingredients have been used for centuries as makeup: apply beet
juice to lips and cheeks as a stain,or mix it with melted bees wax to make
your own lip balm! Cayenne pepper can plump the lips, but use with caution!
3. Use eye makeup remover to treat super dry, chapped lips. It's a great
nighttime lip treatment!
Your Face :
1. For a longer lasting foundation try a product with silicone. The silicone
creates a sweat-proof and smudge resistant second skin. For me, I find it
helps with my rosacea because the live yeast extract has healing powers.
2. A powder bronzer under blush can really even out skin tone. I dab my
brush in the bronzer, then into the blush and lightly cover my whole face.
3. For a new bronzer, use a foundation that is two to three shades darker
than your skin tone and apply where you would use your bronzer. In a pinch
you could use a brown eye shadow.
4. Papaya mixed with plain yogurt into a paste makes a great exfoliating
mask for all skin types!
5. Use an egg white mask for a quick fix for diminishing the appearance of

A farmer rears twenty-five young hens and one old cock. As he feels that the old cock could no longer handle his job efficiently, the farmer bought one Young cock from the market.
Old cock to Young cock : "Welcome to join me, we will work together towards Productivity.
Young cock : What ya mean? As far as I know, you are old and should be retired.
Old cock : Young boy, there are twenty-five hens here, can't I help you with some?
Young cock : No! Not even one, all of them will be mine.
Old cock : In this case, I shall challenge you to a competition and if I win you shall allow me to have one hen and if I loose you will have all.
Young cock : O.K. What kind of competition?
Old cock : 50 meter run. >From here to that t! Ree. But due to my age, I hope you allow me to start off the first 10 meters.
Young cock : No problem ! We will compete tomorrow morning.
Confidently, the following morning, the Young cock allows the Old cock to start off and when the Old cock crosses the 10 meters mark the Young cock chases him with all his might.
Soon enough, he was behind the Old cock back in a matter of seconds. Suddenly, Bang! ..... Before he could overtake the old cock, he was shot dead by the farmer, who cursed, "What the hell ! This is the fifth GAY Chicken I've bought this week !"

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the
country with the
express purpose of showing him how poor people live.
They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be
considered a very poor family.
On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the
"It was great, Dad."
"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.
"Oh yeah," said the son.
"So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.
The son answered:
"I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a
creek that has no end.
We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night.
Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond
We have servants who serve us, but they serve others.
We buy our food, but they grow theirs.
We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to
The boy's father was speechless.
Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."
Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if
we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we
Appreciate every single thing you have!
Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their
perspective and appreciation.

When we share laughter,
There's twice the fun;
When we share success,
We surpass what we've done.
When we share problems,
There's half the pain;
When we share tears,
A rainbow follows rain.
When we share dreams,
They become more real;
When we share secrets,
It's our hearts we reveal.
If we share a smile,
Then our love shows;
If we share a hug,
Then our love grows.
If we share with someone
On whom we depend,
That person becomes
Family or friend.
And what draws us closer
And makes us all care,
Is not what we have,
But the things that we share.

As you travel through life there are always those times when decisions just
have to be made when the choices are hard, and solutions seem scarce and the
rain seems to soak your parade!
There are some situations where all you can do is to simply let go and move
on gather courage together and choose a direction that carries you toward a
So pack up your troubles and take a step forward the process of change can
be tough but think about all the excitement ahead if you can be stalwart
There could be adventures you never imagined just waiting around the next
bend and wishes and dreams just about to come true in ways you can't yet
Perhaps you'll find friendships that spring from new interests as you
challenge your status quo and learn there are so many options in life, and
so many ways you can grow!
Perhaps you'll go places you never expected and see things that you've never
seen or travel to fabulous, faraway worlds and wonderful spots in between!

If ever you need to talk,
If ever you need some cheer,
Remember you have a friend
Who always will be here...
She doesn't want a lot,
Only to see you smile;
And just to see you happy,
She'll walk that proverbial mile.
Always know she cares,
No matter what you do.
You'll always find her there
To give you hugs when you are blue.
There is a saying that goes:
"You don't have to love in words,
Because even through the silences,
Love is always heard."

There are moments in life when you miss someone
So much that you just want to pick them from
Your dreams and hug them for real!
When the door of happiness closes, another opens;
But often times we look so long at the
Closed door that we don't see the one,
Which has been opened for us.
Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile,
Because it takes only a smile to
Make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile.
Dream what you want to dream;
Go where you want to go;
Be what you want to be,
Because you have only one life
And one chance to do all the things
You want to do.
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
Enough trials to make you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human and
Enough hope to make you happy.
The happiest of people don't necessarily
Have the best of everything;
They just make the most of
Everything that comes along their way.
The brightest future will always
Be based on a forgotten past;
You can't go forward in life until
You let go of your past failures and heartaches.
When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so at the end,
You're the one who is smiling and everyone
Around you is crying.

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
Or how comes it that my exceeding heat!
Is not allayed by her heart-frozen cold,
But that I burn much more in boiling sweat,
And feel my flames augmented manifold?
What more miraculous thing may be told,
That fire, which all things melts, should harden ice,
And ice, which is congealed with senseless cold,
Should kindle fire by wonderful device?
Such is the power of love in gentle mind,
That it can alter all the course of kind.

Lessons to Learn From Inspiring Story "Adjust To Life........ ........"
A man and his girlfriend were married. It was a large celebration. All of
their friends and family came to see the lovely ceremony and to partake of
the festivities and celebrations. A wonderful time was had by all.
The bride was gorgeous in her white wedding gown and the groom was very
dashing in his black tuxedo. Everyone could tell that! The love they had for
each other was true.
A few months later, the wife comes to the husband with a proposal: "I read
in a magazine, a while ago, about how we can strengthen our marriage." she
"Each of us will write a list of the things that we find a bit annoying with
the other person. Then, we can talk about how we can fix them together and
make our lives happier together."
The husband agreed, so each of them went to a separate room in the house and
thought of the things that annoyed them about the other. They thought about
this question for the rest of the day and wrote down what they came up with.
The next morning, at the breakfast table, they decided that they would go
over their lists.
"I'll start," offered the wife. She took out her list. It had many items on
it enough to fill 3 pages, in fact. As she started reading the list of the
little annoyances, she noticed that tears were starting to appear in her
"What's wrong?" she asked. "Nothing" the husband replied, "keep reading your
The wife continued to read until she had read all three pages to her husband
She neatly placed her list on the table and folded her hands over top of it
"Now, you read your list and then we'll talk about the things on both of our
lists." She said happily.
Quietly the husband stated, "I don't have anything on my list. I think that
you are perfect the way that you are. I don't want you to change anything
for me. You are lovely and wonderful and I wouldn't want to try and change
anything about you."
The wife, touched by his honesty and the depth of his love for her and his
acceptance of her, turned her head and wept.

In life, there are enough times when we are disappointed, depressed and
annoyed. We don't really have to go looking for them.
We have a wonderful world that is full of beauty, light and promise.
Why waste time in this world looking for the bad, disappointing or annoying
when we can look around us, and see the wondrous things before us?
Lessons to Learn from This Message:
I believe that WE ARE HAPPIEST WHEN we see and praise the good and try our
best to forget the bad. Nobody's perfect but we can find perfect ness in
them to change the way we see them.

When you are together with that special someone, you pretend to ignore
that person. But when that special someone is not around, you might look around to find them.
At that moment, you are in love.
Although there is someone else who always makes you laugh,
your eyes and attention might go only to that special someone.
Then, you are in love.
Although that special someone was supposed to have called you long back,
to let you know of their safe arrival,
your phone is quiet.
You are desperately waiting for the call!
At that moment, you are in love.
If you are much more excited for one short e-mail from
that special someone than other many long e-mails,
you are in love.
When you find yourself as one who cannot erase all the
emails or SMS messages in your phone because of one message
from that special someone, you are in love.
When you get a couple of free movie tickets, you would
not hesitate to think of that special someone.
Then, you are in love.
You keep telling yourself, "that special someone is just a friend",but
you realize that you can not avoid that person's special attraction. At that
moment, you are in love.
While you are reading this mail, if someone
appears in your mind,
then u are in love with that person...;))
