The Wholeness of Life
Once a circle missed a wedge. The circle wanted to be whole, so it wentaround looking for its missing piece. But because it was incomplete andtherefore could roll only very slowly, it admired the flowers along the way. Itchatted with worms. It enjoyed the sunshine. It found lots of different pieces,but none of them fit. So it left them all by the side of the road and kept onsearching.
Then one day the circle found a piece that fit perfectly. It was so happy.Now it could be whole, with nothing missing. It incorporated the missing pieceinto itself and began to roll. Now that it was a perfect circle, it could rollvery fast, too fast to notice flowers or talk to the worms. When it realized howdifferent the world seemed when it rolled so quickly, it stopped, left its foundpiece by the side of the road and rolled slowly away.
There is a wholeness about the person who has come to terms with hislimitations, who has been brave enough to let go of his unrealistic dreams andnot feel like a failure for doing so. There is a wholeness about the man orwoman who has learned that he or she is strong enough to go through a tragedyand survive, she can lose someone and still feel like a complete person.

There is in the center of your heart and my heart a wireless station forrecieving the informations of beauty, love, courage and power from man and fromthe infinite.
English is a useful language all over the world. Why are we began to learn English when we were little children? Beacause it is very important for us to learn it.In the world, if you cannot speak English you will lose half a chance to success.
Even if my English is very bad, my teacher stll encourages me to learn English hard and he gives me some ways to learn English. He tells me to read passages loudly and listen to the English tapes everyday morning.In order to progress my writing he also asks me to write some articles at times. I like listen to the English songs,he suggests me to sing the English songs.As a result of his ways my English becomes well.
Now, I like English very well and I still use the ways he tells me.I know I must learn English even hard.
My dear friends,
Do you know what is the most precious and everlasting thing in the world ?Money?You may lose everything you have if you don't use money carefull enough.Youth?In one's long life youth is like a flash in the pan and no one in the world has the secret to keep his youth forever.Beautiful look?Many people pray that they can get hold of beauty,but it disappears far more quickly than they can imagine.And when they are in real trouble beauty itself feels helpless.A good job?As you grow older and your brain and hands can't work as fast as before.It will become other people's wealth.
Then what is the most precious and everlasting thing in the world?
When you are far away from your family and feel especially lonely,Who will you think of?When you stand on the crossoad in your life and don't know which way to choose,who will you think of?When you encounter greater difficulties than ever and need other's encouragement,who will you think of?When you decide to make the greatest decision in your favorite course,who shed cheerful tears when see you get achievements?Whose wholehearted blessing will be always with you no matter how far you will go?
Yes,it's mother who you will always think of and it's mother's love that willbe always be with you.
I once heard a moving story about a mother.Two childrens were drawn into the flood and the situations was very dangerous.Their mother jumped into the water without hesitation.But the mother couldn't swim at all.Jumping into the water means she might lose her life.But at that time she had no time to think about herself.She just wanted to try all means to save her children.Maybe her courage touched the God.The miracle happened.She finally succeeded in saving her both children.And she,of course,felt extremely exhausted.
My friends,mother's love is the greatest love.Mother's love is the safest love.No matter you are happy or depressed ,rich or poor ,mother's love will always stay with you.
