    Hey man.. I dont know what to say. I dont know you. I will probably never meet you. But you have REALLY woke me up today. The truth is, we dont live forever. Its one of the conditions of living. We have to make the most of what time we do have! Live EVERY day as if it was our last. Wether diagnosed with terminal cancer, or getting in a car accident on the way home, ne NEVER know when its going to happen. We can never be FULLY prepared. But we can change our lives. We can make what time we do have the best.
    You are a strong man. You seem to have a lot of love for your family in your heart. Its good to know that you are keeping the important things close to you. don't let that change. Miracles DO happen. I hope that you are that blessed. But if one does not come your way, dont leave this earth with any regrets. You seem to have your priorities straight. I myself am thankful for every second I am alive. If I were to die tomorrow, I don't think i would have any regrets! Thank you SO much for allowing me to open my eyes again. Thanks for the enlightenment.
    I hope the best for you. The best is MUCH DESERVED for you.

    Oh yeah,

    Go test drive a stang. Smiling is the worlds best medicine.

    A quick thankyou Spanky, your posts have helped me to deal with some issues I was previously unwilling to deal with, and also shown me what courage really is. I think of you often even though I do not personally know you, and I wish you all the best the world has to offer.

    i drive 80 miles each way to work at a performance shop... along the way i see a lot of people while they're driving...

    a lot on cell phones, gabbing away, barely paying attention to the car their driving at 70-90mph.... see other people who look tired, stressed out, expressionless...

    i occasionally see a cute girl.. some who smoke, i always lament under my breath how "that sucks..."... and every once in a while i see a beautiful girl, whom when I pull next to smiles at me...

    one night when i was coming home from work after a nightmare of a day, i saw a beautiful girl in a red cougar. she was on her cell when i first saw her. i passed her but she caught upto me a bit down the road. she looked over and gave me a incredible smile. I felt really warm inside and just all the crap of my day was forgotten.. we hung together, side by side for a while.. i stuck my tongue out at her and she laughed and kept smiling at me :) while unfortunate, i didn't get her number and she got off at a different exit from me and I haven't seen her since.. but I'll never forget her face or how she made me feel.... she totally changed my day around with her smile..

    that little experience and feeling i believe is what is important in life. after all the bs at work, money, cars, all the material stuff.. its how we interact with others and feel about ourselves and the perspective we see through that makes the difference between dealing with life or living life to its fullest.

    Smile, do good for others, make a difference in the lives of others and it will be reciprocated and never forgotten. I'll never forget the girl in the red cougar or that it was a friday night around 7pm on route 18 south... hard to forget when it felt so good :)

    You are in my prayers.. Stay strong and fight and pray for guidance from God he loves you and will not desert you in your time of need.

    A few more inspirational quotes for you:


    Hold on to what is good,
    even if it's a handful of earth.
    Hold on to what you believe,
    Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.
    Hold on to what you must do,
    Even if it's a long way from here.
    Hold on to your life,
    Even if it's easier to let go.
    Hold on to my hand,
    Even if I've gone away from you.

    Pueblo Indian Prayer

    Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
    Life is beauty, admire it.
    Life is bliss, taste it.
    Life is a dream, realize it.
    Life is a challenge, meet it.
    Life is a duty, complete it.
    Life is a game, play it.
    Life is a promise, fulfill it.
    Life is sorrow, overcome it.
    Life is a song, sing it.
    Life is a struggle, accept it.
    Life is a tragedy, confront it.
    Life is an adventure, dare it.
    Life is luck, make it.
    Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
    Life is life, fight for it.

    Hi Spanky, like everyone else here I am deeply moved with your situation. I rarely pray. But now I do for your best wishes. Life is relative, at some point we all meet in the other world. You will never be alone! Meet you there soon good buddy!! :flag:

    I obviously can't even pretend to know what you are going through, but as said in many of the above posts, you and your family are in my prayers, and I hope everything works out.

    Peace, man.

    Edit: I just saw how old this thread was.
    God bless him and his family.

    Spanky, although I don't know you personally, I would just like to say that my family and myself, are praying for a miracle, so you just hang in there, and don't ever give up hope.. Because all of us, in this forum are praying for you and for all the doctors, to heal you through God's wisdom, by his amazing healing powers, and once again please know that, you're not alone, and were all with you as one family, in the brotherhood of Christ...Rocky P.

    Does anybody know what ever happened. I read every post from the start because it was such a touching post. I know he said the doctors gave him 1-2 years and that was back in 04. If you are still with us spanky442 I pray for you, and if you have past on I send all my prayers to your family. You sounded like a very wonderful guy:flag:
