She is right….I faced something that was unexpected, unwanted and uncertain but when I look at it, it was more like a gift. My benign ovarian tumor on my right ovaries was a huge wake-up call for me. Before that, I did not really value my health. I smoked like crazy, ate unhealthy food and had very little exercise. But since this health scare, I have quit smoking for two weeks now and started eating healthy food. Lost weight and feels cleaner inside and out. However, the cravings of nicotine is still very strong but I try to keep my mind busy. Yes, it cost me money on the surgery but if a tumor grew on my ovaries, it can happen in my lungs…So I quit.

Life is a competition. Survival of the fittest, fight for what you want or someone else will take it. People don’t hold doors anymore. ~Unknown
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. Brainy Quote

“There are no small number of people in this world who, solitary by nature,always try to go back into their shell like a hermit crab or a snail.”
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904), Russian author, playwright. Narrator of Man in a Case, Works, vol. 10, p. 42, “Nauka” (1976).
Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. ~Chinese Proverb
There are no great things, only small things with great love. Happy are those.
It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.
Love cannot remain by itself… it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that act is service.
It is not how much you do, but how much love you put into the doing that matters.
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Love is like a fruit in season at all times. Love can warm three winter months.
If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
