My Heart Will Go On

My Heart Will Go On Lyrics
Songwriters: Horner, James; Jennings, Will;

Every night in my dreams I see you, I feel you.  That is how I know you go on. Far across the distance and spaces between us, you have come to show you go on.
Near, far, wherever you are. I believe that the heart does go on. Once more you open the door and you’re here in my heart. And my heart will go on and on.
Love can touch us one time, and last for a lifetime and never let go till we’re gone. Love was when I loved you, one true time I hold to. In my life we’ll always go on.
Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that the heart does go on. Once more you open the door, and you’re here in my heart. And my heart will go on and on.
You’re here, there’s nothing I fear, and I know that my heart will go on. We’ll stay forever this way, you are safe in my heart. And my heart will go on and on.

What If?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The mission of  Touched By Joy is based on core values of compassion, caring, and kindness. That is what we offer to Caregivers. But, “What If,” everyone in the world had the same core values of compassion, caring and kindness?

WHAT IF ? Everyone in the world was filled with compassion and caring ? Each person practiced kindness?

WHAT IF ? No country went to war? Had no nuclear bombs? No nation practiced genocide or torture?

WHAT IF ? People around the world just stopped and practiced compassion, caring, and kindness every single day? What if we never cut anyone off in our car? We thanked every store clerk. We had a friendly smile for everyone at work? Said a cheerful hello to everyone we saw. What if we said “I love you every single day to every one in the family and gave them a big hug?

Just for one moment think, WHAT IF ?
