One friend can change your whole life.
A grown woman is not impressed with being desired by others – she expects it, based on her respect and love for herself. She knows she has a lot to offer and therefore, sets a high standard for those who would prove worthy of her time and company, not to mention access to her heart, body, money and home. A grown woman does not need the attention of others to feel desirable or worthy of love. And she knows the difference between being desired and wanted for what she looks like, what she has or what she can do, and being loved And valued for who she is.
When you have something good… When you have something good, you don’t play with it!
You don’t take chances with it!
You don’t take risks with it! When you got something good, you get every single thing you can get out of it!
Because guess what?
When you take care of something good, that something good takes care of you.
Today is a very special day for me, it’s the day I found the one who blew sparkles in my life.
I was always independent, I loved everything about myself and most of all I was ultimately grateful for my blessings from the Lord.
However when I met you I never realised that you would give me such happiness, such joy and love.
I love you with every part of my soul, because you know me inside out and still look at me with love.
“Time is not a measure of success, you could have known someone for years and not feel anything for them.
You could have known someone for a short period of time and feel an instant bond, unbreakable.”
The bond I felt with you no words can describe the emotion it brings in my heart.
You are my best friend, and the key to the lock in my heart.
“One day someone will hug you so tight, that all your pieces will fit together perfectly.”
The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.

Have you noticed when you meet a particular person for the first time, you get along with them instantly. You agree on most things, you feel comfortable in their presence and most importantly you talk to them as if you have known them for years. You even express yourself in a way that would take you months or even years with other people. You don’t hold back what you want to say and can express yourself freely in their presence.
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described why this happens. A’isha (radiallahu anha) narrated that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Souls are troops collected together and those who got along with one another (in the realm where souls existed before entering physical bodies in this world) will have an affinity with one another and get along (in this world).” (Bukhari, 3158; Muslim, 2638)
So the person that you love and cherish in this world are with you for a reason. You were joined together before you were born and you exist in harmony together as brothers/sisters in this world as a result of that attachment.
Al-Khattabi states that people are attracted to those who are like them and people’s souls recognise one another according to their nature. If they are similar they will get along and if they are different they will not get along. — Finally this sums things up. Ibn Hibbaan narrated: “Ibn Abbas saw a man and said, ‘Indeed he loves me.’ His companions asked, ‘And how do you know?’ He said, ‘Because I love him and souls are like recruited soldiers, those that recognise one another unite in harmony and those that do not recognise one another are at an aversion.’ (Rawdah Al-Uqalaa, 1/108).
“Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it…”

A man and his fiancée were married. It was a large celebration. All of their friends and family came to see the lovely ceremony and to partake of the festivities and celebrations. A wonderful time was had by all.
The bride was gorgeous in her white wedding gown and the groom was very dashing in his black suit. Everyone could tell that the love they had for each other was true.
A few months later, the wife comes to the husband with a proposal: “I read in a magazine, a while ago, about how we can strengthen our marriage.” She offered.
“Each of us will write a list of the things that we find a bit annoying with the other person. Then, we can talk about how we can fix them together and make our lives happier together.”
The husband agreed. So each of them went to a separate room in the house and thought of the things that annoyed them about the other. They thought about this question for the rest of the day and wrote down what they came up with.
The next morning, at the breakfast table, they decided that they would go over their lists.
“I’ll start,” offered the wife. She took out her list. It had many items on it. Enough to fill 3 pages, in fact. As she started reading the list of the little annoyances, she noticed that tears were starting to appear in her husbands eyes.
“What’s wrong?” she asked. “Nothing” the husband replied, “keep reading your list.”
The wife continued to read until she had read all three pages to her husband. She neatly placed her list on the table and folded her hands over top of it.
“Now, you read your list and then we’ll talk about the things on both of our lists.” She said happily.
Quietly the husband stated, “I don’t have anything on my list. I think that you are perfect the way that you are. I don’t want you to change anything for me. You are lovely and wonderful and I wouldn’t want to try and change anything about you.”
The wife, touched by his honesty and the depth of his love for her and his acceptance of her, turned her head and wept.
~This is such a sad story.. brought a tear to my eyes..
Being a good person does not depend on your religion, status, race, colour or political view.
It depends on how you treat others.
You are my sunshine, my morning light, my dreams and my inspiration.
But most of all you are my motivation to be a better person.
