Time is the rapids we pass through and life is the stream in which we all swim in,
Troubles and trials of life are the rocks while love is the current that carries us through life.
Friends are like a lifeline when the current becomes to strong for us to go it alone.
Family is the anchor we rely on when the storm winds try to carry us away.
Knowledge is what prepares us for life’s trials and wisdom is the jewel of experience.
Understanding is knowing we all are human and being wise enough to know we are not perfect.
Compassion is love without any kind of limits or any condition upon its reception.
Charity is humbleness that knows not selfishness and hope is knowing in time all things change.
