Life Is To Short

Life is to short to waste 
it away,you need to 
live and love your life,
each and everyday.

Your family and friends
are always there for you,
and they all know your
there for them too.

Children are gifts from
God up above,please
remember to always
show them your love.

Life is to short to think
of ending it all,when
things get to rough,
you need to stand tall.

Remember to live life the
way God wants you to,
for it is up to him to
decide when your through.

                 Colleen Marie Bono

    -Remember to live life the way God wants you to, for it is up to him to decide when your through- No need for me to tell you this. You already know. Life is truly too short. Go when He wants you to go. Best Wishes Always, Bill

    I like this Colleen. I hope this is reality. I do not know what brought you down but I do know that ending it is not the answer at all because if it was then I would not be here at all. Too much anxiety and loss in my life yet I am still here and I do not know why. Good luck this is becoming a fav....The Southern Belle
