A special request

I know usually I am not the one asking but here I am asking for your help. I have a couple of dear friends that really need me right now. One has just been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer and the other is battling Lou Gherig Disease. I am not going to mention any names and would like to do something special for them. My friend with ALS I have been working on an album for a few months now and the other one I will be starting on an album. I first thought that I would make it about their family, friends and our course our relationship but then thought I want them to look into these albums and get courage and strength from the words within them.

Now here is where my request comes in. I want poems, quotations and anything that you would need is battling either of these. I have been doing a lot of searching and have found quite a bit but would like to hear from others.

I would like to thank you in advanced for your help. I am praying that my dear friends.

Hugs, Veronica

To laught often and much, to win the respect of intellegent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by healthy child, a garden patch ... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived it. This is to have succeeded! - Ralph Waldo Emerson.
