her toenails anymore.. So my grandfather does it for her all the time ,
even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love.'

And the final one
The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an
elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry , the little boy went into the old gentleman's
yard , climbed onto his lap , and just sat there.
When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor , the little boy
'Nothing , I just helped him cry'
When there is nothing left but God , that is when you find out that God
is all you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is
simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this.
Heavenly Father , please bless all my friends in whatever it is that You
know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of Your
peace , prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer
relationship with You. Amen .
