Love, Patience and Understanding - Words from the Heart helps us cope with many aspects in life that are unpredictable. Love teaches us to appreciate and value our family and friends while they are here with us. Life is short and we never want to have everlasting regrets once our loved one is no longer with us. We do not want to go through life asking, "Why didn't I do that, or why wasn't I there to help when they were in need?" "Why was I too busy?" In Patience we are taught to remain calm in many situations. Dealing with an aged parent, a crying child or a job that we dislike, can be very taxing on us. I find that when we are at the end of the rope, it is better to count to three, take a deep breath and exercise patience. Hopefully, by practicing this exercise the lack of patience will diminish. There may be times when we should do this exercise more than once a day. When we are patient, life around us seems much easier on everyone near and far. With Understanding we realize we are not the only one who has troubles or heartaches. To ask a question such as "Why?" and never receive an answer is very puzzling. Such a small word, yet so powerful never knowing the answer. The reader will gain insight of how we should count our blessings, appreciate our family and friends and never look back on what could have been. Look forward to tomorrow. A bright smile, a compliment and words of kindness, along with the soft touch of a kiss will bring comfort and peace to all.
