Consider...YOU. In all time before now and in all time to come, there has never been and will never be anyone just like you. You are unique in the entire history and future of the universe. Wow! Stop and think about that. You're better than one in a million, or a billion, or a gazillion...


You are the only one like you in a sea of infinity!


You're amazing! You're awesome! And by the way, TAG, you're it. As amazing and awesome as you already are, you can be even more so. Beautiful young people are the whimsey of nature, but beautiful old people are true works of art. But you don't become "beautiful" just by virtue of the aging process.


Real beauty comes from learning, growing, and loving in the ways of life. That is the Art of Life. You can learn slowly, and sometimes painfully, by just waiting for life to happen to you. Or you can choose to accelerate your growth and intentionally devour life and all it offers. You are the artist that paints your future with the brush of today.

Paint a Masterpiece.

真正的美丽源于生命里的学习、成长和热爱。这就是生命的艺术。你可以只听天由命, 慢慢地学,有时候或许会很痛苦。又或许你可以选择加速自己的成长,故意地挥霍生活及其提供的一切。你就是手握今日之刷描绘自己未来的艺术家。


God gives every bird its food, but he doesn't throw it into its nest. Wherever you want to go, whatever you want to do, it's truly up to you.


Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born. So one day he asked God,"They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"


God replied,"Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you."


But the child wasn't sure he really wanted to go."But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and smile, that's enough for me to be happy."


"Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. And you will feel your angel's love and be happy."


"And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me,"the child continued,"if I don't know the language that men talk?"


God patted him on the head and said,"Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."


"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"


But God had an answer for that question too."Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."


"I've heard that on earth there are bad men, who will protect me?"


"Your angel will defend you even if it means risking her life!"


"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore,"the child continued warily.


God smiled on the young one."Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."


At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard. The child knew he had to start on his journey very soon. He asked God one more question, softly,"Oh God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

此时,天堂一片宁静,凡间的声音已可听到,小孩明白自己得赶紧上路了。 他又轻声问了最后一个问题,“哦,上帝,假如我现在就出发,请你告诉我,我的天使叫什么名字。”

God touched the child on the shoulder and answered,"Your angel's name is not hard to remember. You will simply call her Mommy." 

上帝把手放在小孩的肩上,答道:“你的天使的名字很容易记住, 你就叫她——妈妈。”
