--- Author Unknown --- Submitted by Mike Wills --- Missouri

When have something someone else needs,
You give it to them - unconditionally.
When you need something that others have,
You accept it from them - unconditionally.
If you have all things,
Then there is nothing left but to give of yourself - unconditionally.
If you hold back,
You can no longer give or take.
The essence of family, of team, of life
Is giving of yourself and acceptance from one another
Unconditionally.

A champion is a person who wants to be the best
They won't give up until they beat the rest.
With hard work, persistence, and much dedication
They go after their goal with plenty of determination.
Training for that day they will become the best
The day that they will beat the rest.
And if they are beaten and told NO!
They will laugh cause they already know
They are a Champion!
Because a champion does not lie within the best
But only in the few with character,
To work as hard as they can to beat the rest.

FREEDOM

Freedom is like the butterfly in the sky;
Watching the sunset with your eyes,
Feeling the joy from your heart and not your mind.
Freedom is when you know that your life is not a lie,
When your smile is genuine.
Freedom is giving with a cheerful heart.
Wouldn't you like to be FREE?
