 UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

A story is told about a soldier who was finally coming home
from the war. He called his parents from San Francisco.

"Mom and Dad, I'm coming home, but I've a favor to ask. I
have a friend I'd like to bring home with me."

"Sure," they replied, "we'd love to meet him."

"There's something you should know the son continued, "he
was hurt pretty badly in the fighting. He stepped on a land mind
and lost an arm and a leg. He has nowhere else to go, and I want
him to come live with us."

"I'm sorry to hear that, son. Maybe we can help him find somewhere to live."

"No, Mom and Dad, I want him to live with us."

"Son," said the father, "you don't know what you're asking.
Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden on us. We
have our own lives to live, and we can't let something like this
interfere with our lives. I think you should just come home and
forget about this guy. He'll find a way to live on his own."

At that point, the son hung up the phone. The parents heard
nothing more from him. A few days later, however, they received a
call from the San Francisco police. Their son had died after
falling from a building, they were told. The police believed it
was suicide. The grief-stricken parents flew to San Francisco and
were taken to the city morgue to identify the body of their son.
They recognized him, but to their horror they also discovered
something they didn't know, their son had only one arm and one leg.

The parents in this story are like many of us. We find it
easy to love those who are good-looking or fun to have around, but
we don't like people who inconvenience us or make us feel
uncomfortable. We would rather stay away from people who aren't as
healthy, beautiful, or smart as we are. Thankfully, there's
someone who won't treat us that way. Someone who loves us with an
unconditional love that welcomes us into the forever family,
regardless of how messed up we are.

Tonight, before you tuck yourself in for the night, say a
little prayer that God will give you the strength you need to
accept people as they are, and to help us all be more
understanding of those who are different from us!!! There's a
miracle called Friendship That dwells in the heart You don't know
how it happens Or when it gets started But you know the special
lift It always brings And you realize that Friendship Is God's
most precious gift! Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They
make you smile and encourage you to succeed They lend an ear, they
share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts
to us.

You now have 2 choices.

1.) Show your friends how much you care.... Send them this note
and the URL

2.) Don't send this to anyone and act like it didn't touch your heart.
