An Incredible Love Story

"HOPE is a Waking Dream ... with LOVE everything is POSSIBLE"

I received this story twice in my first i just ignored this email but the subject seems so intriguing to read..It's worth my time reading this it made me feel "inspired and in love" So, I wanted to share this to everybody!

In 2006, their story became one of the top 10 love stories from China , collected by the Chinese Women Weekly. The local government has decided to preserve the love ladder and the place they lived as a museum, so this love story can live forever.

An incredible love story has come out of China recently and managed to touch the world.. It is a story of a man and an older woman who ran off to live and love each other in peace for over half a century.

The 70-year-old Chinese man who hand-carved over 6,000 stairs up a mountain for his 80-year-old wife has passed away in the cave which has been the couple's home for the last 50 years. Over 50 years ago, Liu Guojiang a 19 year-old boy, fell in love with a 29 year-old widowed mother named Xu Chaoqin...

In a twist worthy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, friends and relatives criticized
the relationship because of the age difference and the fact that Xu already had children. At that time, it was unacceptable and immoral for a young man to love an older woman.. To avoid the market gossip and the scorn of their communities, the couple decided to elope and lived in a cave in Jiangjin County in Southern ChongQing Municipality .

In the beginning, life was harsh as hey had nothing, no electricity or even food. They had to eat grass and roots they found in the mountain, and Liu made a kerosene lamp that they used to light up their lives. Xu felt that she had tied Liu down and repeatedly asked him, 'Are you regretful? Liu always replied, 'As long as we are industrious, life will improve..'

In the second year of living in the mountain, Liu began and continued for over 50 years, to hand-carve the steps so that his wife could get down the mountain easily. Half a century later in 2001, a group of adventurers were exploring the forest and were surprised to find the elderly couple and the over 6,000 hand-carved steps. Liu MingSheng, one of their seven children said, 'My parents loved each other so much, They have lived in seclusion for over 50 years and never been apart a single day. He hand carved more than 6,000 steps over the years for my mother's convenience, although she doesn't go down the mountain that much.' The couple had lived in peace for over 50 years until last week. Liu, now 72 years, returned from his daily farm work and collapsed. Xu sat and prayed with her husband as he passed away in her arms. So in love with Xu, was Liu, that no one was able to release the grip he had on his wife's hand even after he had passed away. 'You promised me you'll take care of me, you'll always be with me until the day I died, now you left before me, how am I going to live without you?' Xu spent days softly repeating this sentence and touching her husband's black coffinwith tears rolling down her cheeks.

The MV Princess of the Stars..Another unexpected sea tragedy..

A passenger ship MV Princess of the Stars has sunk off in the waters of Romblon, Philippines on Saturday. Gov't officials said they saw Sulpicio Lines' Princess of the Stars capsized. The ship may have approximately 700 passengers and crews. It's traveling in the rough seas amid a fury typhoon when the engine failed. Hundreds are feared dead. The typhoon has killed at least 141 people and 255 people are missing, most of them fishermen. The massive ferry which was built to hold about 2,000 people, flipped over about a mile off the shore of Sibuyan Island as typhoon Fengshen pummeled the Philippines.

While it is a tragic accident in its entirety, it could have been avoided. We all know that the Philippines is composed of 7,107 islands and traveling by boat is the most common means of transportation. There were a lot of questions to be asked..Why were they permitted to sail on that very stormy weather? Weren't they aware of that strong typhoon? They risk the lives of those 700 people..without thinking that they have families waiting for them..longing for their presence.. What's the role of PAGASA and the Coast Guard. This issue is hopeless..It all happened in a just click.. and the only thing that we can do now is pray.

We may not be there to help comfort the family of the victims but we can sincerely offer them a prayer for the deceased, their surviving families and hope for the betterment of the situation.

You will always remain in my heart Baby Noah..I will miss you!

Honestly, Its hard to bring back the pain i've been through but I wanted to share this story that had left a big dot within me..

If last weekend was a big bash for me, I was truly very depressed just this current weekend. It was an unexpected thing that happened in my entire life..I have a mixed emotions that i could not exactly describe how i feel about the whole thing..

This started last June 18,2008 when my friend noticed that my puppy ("noah") was not feeling well and lost his appetite. Noah is my 4 months old cross breed puppy (japanese spitz,shih tzu,maltese) a very bubbly, friendly,smart, fun-loving puppy..every night he used to go with me and my 4 yr old dog swooshie go stroll around for a "pee and popo time"..We've trained him to be his father's very opposite that means, we wanted him to be friendly so he could socialize with other people other than us and we didn't even had a hard time teaching him..because he's a smart puppy! but then time has come that I myself couldn't imagine..due to some reasons, busy with career and other important obligations, we forgot to have him immunized (parvo).

It was in the morning of June 19,2008 that I saw him sick and lost his appetite and would not even drink water..I started to worry and think of how to cure him. we called our vet to ask if we could give hydrite and vitamins. So to avoid dehydration, we gave him hydrite and vitamins to regain his appetite..i tried to feed him but he refused to eat..just trying to think positive hoping he could survive.. he was also trying to drink water all by himself that night trying to gain his appetite as well. We were planning to bring him to our vet on weekend June 21 but a very strong typhoon frank hit our we were stuck at home..he was so weak that day that i had all the chance to carry, hug while telling him that he could survive..and i whispered "I love you!" and kissed him..I spent tiime with noah gave him milk..i slept beside him just to take a nap after my night shift work..when suddenly my friend woke me up see noah..oh my god! he was lying beside me looking at if he's telling sorry that he couldn't survive the pain..then he took a deep breath and die..

He died around 12 noon last saturday June 21,2008..he died beside me,looking at me..I cried so hard and shout out loud calling his name! my memories with him were so fresh..I wanted to think im just dreaming..having a bad dream! I was really crying out the hurt and guilt that i felt..If only i did spare time for him for his immunization..he could live long..i was so depressed! Noah passed away and i don't have the power to bring back the past..It's a lesson learned! but somehow he knew he died with my love..he died with his favorite shirt special gift! now, he's always in my dreams..I can always feel him with me..His memories will remain forever! I will surely miss my baby noah! I love You Noah!

Helen Keller's 10 Most Inspirational Qoutes

I want to share this most "inspirational qoutes of Helen Kelller" that had touched a lot of lives including mine..Read through it and reflect over your own life..It will open your eyes to reality and will help you make worst to better and better to best..

I wonder how different Helen's life would have been if she hadn't had such spirit. Where would she have been without the fire and drive that impressed everyone who met her? Helen is proof of the fact that we can look inside ourselves to make change in the world around us. Let these ten Helen Keller quotes remind us of that.

1. "Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved."

2. "Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn whatever state I am in, therein to be content."

3. "Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings."

4. "When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."

5. "There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his."

6. "Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything good in the world."

7. "Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."

8. "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure."

9. "I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do."

10. "Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see."

A Small Turtle is out..

Hey I've got a great weekend! I saw a small turtle with the kiddos at my friend's house..its fun! At first, I just didn't mind it but I was amazed on how the kids play and took care of it. One of them got a pail and put the small turtle inside while other kiddos were so eager to touch it and even hug and carry..I wondered how it feels and a question popped up my mind... does it have to be in the water? Will it die without water? So I grabbed this opportunity to touch it and feel its body and let it crawl in my hands and even took a picture with it..It was just like I was one of those kiddos longing to own that small turtle..He can be alive without water..Whew! It feels good! touching it..although I must admit it at first i feel like i'm having goosebumps..LOL! but it was a good experience bout you? Have you ever had such a great experience as mine? ( ",) I love animals..I consider them my treasure! that's why we should learn how to take good care of them..It feels good! Thanks for the time "Mr. Small Turtle"!
