A lesson in life by gilad A lesson in life by gilad


Son, let me tell you just a few things I've learned about life.
I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.
I've learned that two people can look at the same thing and see something totally different.
I've learned that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself
I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
I've learned that we are responsible for what we feel, no matter what others do
I've learned that either you control your attitude, or it controls you
I've learned that true friends accept you as you are, but that would never stop you from trying to change them.
I've learned that the smallest secret can change your life forever.

I've learned that you should always tell your loved ones loving words.
Son, just one more thing - I love you


****

A lesson taught on a day, like no other day in this boy's life.
Words have the power to change life, when they are said in a moment like this one.

Tel Aviv beach, on a sunset like non I have ever seen before. You have seen a few shots taken from that sunset.

a picture is worth a thousand words, but this one, is priceless. this is my all time favourite photo on deviantart. the visual beauty of it, and the message it speaks, without your words.with your words it is just a thousand times better.been my wallpaper for about 3 months...especially in the modern world where marriage,parenting and moral values are losing their value and being degraded.the message this photo speaks.of a father going to these efforts, to burn important life lessons in to his sons mind.that there are still people that attach such value....to...i dont know what to say.just wow.....i do not have the vocabulary to give this photo the comment it deserves in english.and i wish i understood hebrew. i would love to read some of your work.when i have the money, i will buy a huge print.what other sites are you on for better prints?

love the gradient in the color of the sky from red to blue, the people in the picture add so much more to it, making you wonder what is it they are conversing about, or what is there that you couldn't talk about with a backdrop like that.
