Values ...



To realize
the value of a sister/brother
ask someone
who doesn't have one.

To realize
the value of ten years:
ask a newly
divorced couple.


To realize
the value of four years:
ask a graduate.

To realize

the value of one year:
ask a student who
has failed a final exam.

To realize

the value of nine months:
ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn.

To realize
the value of one month:

ask a mother
who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize
the value of one minute:
ask a person

who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize
the value of one-second:

ask a person
who has survived an accident.


Time waits for no one.
treasure every moment you have.

You will treasure it even more when

you can share it with someone special.

You realize the value of a friend or family member when you lose one. We appreciate values, especially the value of life.



I made these chokers at Eva's request for a fund raising event at her school aimed for children having life-threatening diseases. We also included several of the crocheted rose brooches to go along as well as little paper ornaments Eva made herself.



Warning:
I am having trouble with the fonts, as you can see, I just hope this post didn't pluck your eyes out!

Lovely text, very true! I'm living away from my family, so I try to appreciate and value every minute with them.

Hope your fund-raising will bring in lots of money for this very important cause.

The chokers are beautiful and the fundraiser caught my heart. My son is 27 years old; on dialysis waiting for a transplant. He has been in kidney failure his entire life; first 7 mos in Texas Chldren's Hospital. Thank you for having a heart for those who are in pain and sick.
