Making Changes

Friday, February 27, 2009

A better life awaits you once you are willing to learn how to make the changes needed.


Doing what is good for you has its benefits.


Starting over, again and again means you are trying, and not giving up.


Failure only comes to those who don't try.


Where would one be if changes weren't an option in life.


We learn through experience what is right and wrong.


Some point in our lives we have made changes.

When Lilly was born, she was
put up for adoption.

Because of her disability no
one wanted her.
She was put in an orphanage,
to be cared for.

Lilly was now eight years old.
A very pretty little girl.
She was learning about life,
but couldn't understand why
her mother didn't want her.

She made a vow to herself that
one day she would go, searching
to find her mother.
There were so many things she
wanted to tell her.

Lilly wrote in her diary every
day from the time she turned
She was a happy little girl.
Adjusted to her world.

Lilly grew up, now was eighteen.
The orphanage told Lilly to leave.
For the very first time Lilly was
scared about being alone.

Lilly went through many changes
in her life.
Ones she needed to make.
Now a young woman, the vow that
she made was about to come true.

She found her Mom, old in age in
a nursing home.
She went to visit her, only to find
her mothers memory was gone.
She gave her a kiss and a gentle
hug saying, "Mom its been so

With tears in her eyes, Lilly
turned her wheel chair around.
In leaving she said, "we could of made
it if we both tried, making changes
day to day. I love you mom, and
always have, I will be back again.

Lilly is still making changes in
her life, she was willing to learn
how to make the changes needed
and succeeded.
