Count Your Blessings.

Post 50. - - - - Wednesday, 15th October, 2006.

Hello Everyone ~ I hope all is going well in your part of this world of ours. All OK here. No good complaining – nobody listens !! I am OK, it’s just a saying !! Now to find something nice to post - - -

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;

Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes;

Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears;

Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full years instead of your lean;

Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth;

Count on God instead of yourself.

~ Author Unknown ~


One Hundred Years From Now.

One hundred years from now

It won’t matter

What kind of car I drove

What kind of house I lived in

How much money I had in the bank

Nor what my clothes looked like


The world may be a little better

Because, I was important

in the life of a child. - - - Author Unknown.

Now for a couple of jokes - - -


A husband and wife were golfing when suddenly the woman asked,

"Honey, if I died would you get married again?"
Man: "No dear."marriagesplit.jpg
Woman: "I'm sure you would."

Man: "Okay, I would"
Woman: "Would you let her sleep in our bed?"

Man: "Ya, I guess so."
Woman: "Would you let her use my golf clubs?"

Man: "No, she's left handed."


Man: “Damn.”


A Married couple is driving along a highway doing a steady forty miles per hour.

The wife is behind the wheel..Her husband suddenly looks across at her and speaks

in a clear voice "I know we've been married for twenty years, but I want a divorce."

The wife says nothing, keeps looking at the road ahead but slowly increases her

speed to 45 mph.
The husband speaks again. "I don't want you to try and talk me out of it," he says,

"because I've been having an affair with your best friend, and she's a far better lover than you are."

Again the wife stays quiet, but grips the steering wheel more tightly and slowly increases the speed to 55.
He pushes his luck. "I want the house," he says insistently.
Up to 60. "I want the car, too," he continues. 65 mph. "And," he says, "I'll havemarriagesacifices.jpg the bank accounts, all the credit cards and the boat!"
The car slowly starts veering towards a massive concrete bridge.
This makes him nervous, so he asks her: "Isn't there anything you want?"

The wife at last replies-in a quiet and controlled voice.
"No, I've got everything I need," she says.
"Oh, really," he inquires, "so what have you got?"

Just before they slam into the wall at 65 mph, the wife turns to him and smiles

. "The airbag."

Moral of the Story:
Women are clever. Don't mess with them.


Some quotes, starting with one my friend Della sent me - -

They told me to cheer up, things could be worse,

So I did and sure enough, things got much worse.

When one door closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door

that we do not see the one that opens.

Make the most of the best and the least of the worst.

- - - Robert Louis Stenenson.

‘Tis easy enough to be pleasant,

When life flows along like a song;

But the man worthwhile is the one who will smile

When everything goes dead wrong..

- - - Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

If we did all the things we are capable of doing we would

truly astound ourselves. - - - Thomas Edison.

Winners never quit and quitters never win. - - - Anon.


Bye for now, Take care of each other, Be happy, Merle.

Loved everything you have for us today...we sure do need to count our blessings, too often we tend to think of only the negatives.
