When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

In My Life

This song by Bette Midler have a very special place in my heart.  I mostly dedicate it to some people who are and were (past tense) dear to me.  Most of the people we know in our lives will come and go.  And as much as we tried to keep them, circumstances, changes and some events in our lives will make it so impossible to form a lasting relationship.  But true friendship doesn't end.  There are no goodbye's, no farewell's because the love and the memories will always be in our hearts and minds.

In My Life by Bette Midler
There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed.
Some forever, not for better.
And some have gone, and some remain.

All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall.
Some are dead and some are living.
In my life I love them all.

But of all these friends and lovers,
There is no one compares with you.
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new.

Though I know I'll never ever lose affection
For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think about them.
In my life I love you more.

Though I know I'll never ever lose affection
For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think of them.
But in my life I loved you more.
I love you more.
I love you more.

To Kathy, I tried to look for you so many times.  I missed you.  You are one dear friend who will always remain in my heart no matter where I go, no matter what happen.  I wished there will be another time, another chance to be with you and catch up on our lives.  I miss you so much, friend.

I made this scrapbook page for you Sweetie.  I have kept these pictures and even brought here in the States, because I have the notion that I will never have another chance to see you again.  But I was wrong, you found me in FB.  You are a gift from God and I will always be thankful for you. 

Take care and hope to talk to you soon...

Note: I wish I could insert the lyrics but I only made an 8X8 layout because the pictures were so small.
