As someone who was adopted, I find this to be beautiful. In my personal experience, being an adopted child isn't any different from the more common way. My Mom always told me that she and my Dad chose me. And they did. My Mom was my best friend. Not a moment goes by that I don't miss her. I still have my wonderful Dad. I will see my Mom again. by florence

My mom told me this story when I was a child over and over. It never sank in. Years later, at a very pivotal point in my life, a dear friend told me this story once again. I often wonder if she knows that she threw a starfish into the sea that day? :) by florence

Anybody I've ever had drama with, like really... Forgiven. Way too stressful to keep holding on to it and being mad about it. As a friend recently told me "So tell me...what kind of mood DO you have to be in to forgive someone?" That was a "SNAP" moment... #eyeopening by helen dipietro

Happy Hanukkah, friends!! This holiday hold a lot of happy memories for me. I grew up celebrating both Christmas and Hanukkah… my dad was Catholic, and my mom was Jewish. As I grew up, I chose to become a Christian myself and don’t really celebrate Hanukkah anymore, but Jewish still blood runs deep through my veins… … by aisha

i do miss you. i miss the us that was .. the us when we first met .. i used to say, "i don't mind letting you wrap me around your little finger because i know you won't hurt me". i still don't think you hurt me intentionally. i just think you decided you didn't love me any more - why? you never told me. i don't know if i stifled you.. again, you never told me - that bit was unfair. but at the core, i love you. by ann

And they DO find out on their own. Just this last weekend, my adult son told me "Mom, I never remember you bad-mouthing my dad and you could have". It was a HUGE comfort to me to hear that. I always wanted to make sure my boys formed THEIR OWN opinions. by agnes

A dear friend of mine was my trainer for a half marathon about 9 years ago..I was not a runner prior to this. After we finished the race she asked if i was ready to start running again on Monday. I kindly told her that the only running i would ever do again would be to play with my kids or if something really big was chasing me. by mstam

When I told you about my past you told me that you never wanted me to be hurt like that again. You told me that you were going to be there with me through it all. You told me that you thought I was an amazing girl that never deserved that. Then you hurt me. AND you weren't there for me... so does that make me not as amazing as you thought I was? by Maiden11976

Did this for Fathers' Day, but in a 3-picture frame. The outside frames had pics from mine and my sister's weddings, the middle one had the saying. While my dad didn't quite seem to get it at first, my mom told me a few days later that he pulled it out again after we had all left and just started gushing about it. Yay. by hattie
