Inspirational Thoughts

Forever

After the divorce, her teenage daughter became increasingly rebellious. It culminated late one night when the police arrested her daughter for drunk driving. Mom had to go to the police station to pick her up.

They didn't speak until the next afternoon. Mom broke the tension by giving her a small gift-wrapped box. Her daughter nonchalantly opened it and found a little rock inside. She rolled her eyes and said, "Cute, Mom, what's this for?" "Read the card," Mom instructed.

Her daughter took the card out of the envelope and read it. Tears started to trickle down her cheeks. She got up and lovingly hugged her mom as the card fell to the floor.

On the card were these words: "This rock is more than 200,000,000 years old. That's how long it will take before I give up on you."

as I have received and am still receiving.
- Albert Einstein

Peace

Peace is joy in slow motion.
