Poat 584 ~ ~ ~ Wednesday 18th March, 2009.
Hello my friends ~~ I hope all is well with you as it is with me - sort of. Yesterday my
Home Care lady and I went shopping and were almost home when we were involved in a car accident. It seems to have been caused by a lady who had an epileptic seizure and all told there were 5 cars involved. She ploughed into the back of Kerry's car from behind.
Then she continued on and only stopped by hitting two other cars.
I wasn't hurt, but Kerry was taken to hospital with back injuries which turned out to be
severe bruising, so I am so glad about that. So that was St. Patrick's Day for me.
The firm she works for came to take me home, and then went and retrieved all my shopping.Some things were crushed or broken, so they checked everything and then went and bought me replacements. I guess they are insured for that situation. A very good friend came as soon as she heard and put away the shopping for me, a real help.
I was shaken up and couldn't type without mistakes, so hope I don't make too many
tonight. Please bear with me.
Well, today was the funeral at Yarrawonga of dear Gwen. I would have liked to be there, but it wasn't possible. My story tonight was sent to me by Gwen awhile back.
It is called "One Flaw in Women."
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up for injustice.
They don't take 'no' for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes and sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN, IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.
We all need to be reminded now and then how wonderful we are.
I am so sorry that I hadn't posted that when Gwen was alive.
Two jokes from my dear friend, Patty. Thank you so much Patty.
Bottle of Wine.
For all of us who are married, were married, wish you were married, or wish you wern't married, this is something to smile about the next time you see a bottle of wine.
Sally was driving home from one of her business trips to Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road.
As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the woman if she would like a ride.
With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car.
Resuming the journey, Sally tried in vain to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman
The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at EVERYTHING she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.
"What's n the bag?" asked the old woman.
Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband."
The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two.
Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said, "GOOD TRADE....."
Maxine's slide down the Bannister of life ......
As you slide down the Banister of life, Remember :
1. Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert have written an Important new book, It's called.....
"Ministers do more than lay people."
2. Transvestites: a guy who likes to eat drink and be Mary.
2.. The difference between the Pope and your boss -- the Pope only expects you to kiss his ring.
4. My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it is gone.
5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.
6. I hate sex in the movies, Tried it once. The seat folded up, the drink spilled and that ice, well, it really chilled the mood.
7. It used to be only death and taxess. Now of course, there's shipping and handling too.
8. A husband is someone who, after taking the trash out, gives the impression that he
just cleaned the whole house.
9. My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.
10. A blonde said, "I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off. I was relieved
when he told me all I needed was turn signal fluid."
11. Definition of a teenager == God's punishment... for enjoying sex.
There was a blonde, a brunette and a redhead. They were in a swimming competition and each had to swim around a cone and swim back as fast as they could doing breaststroke.
The brunette and the redhead cmae back in a resonable time. After a couple of hours had
passed, the blonde finally made it to the end and said, out of breath, "The others cheated
...they used their hands."
A son asked his mother the following question : "Mum, why are wedding dresses white?"
"Son, this shows your friends and relatives that your bride is pure."
The son thanks his mother and goes off to double check with his father.
"Dad, why are wedding dresses white?"
The father looks at his son and says, "All household appliances come in white."
In the beginning, God created the Earth and rested.
Then God created Man and then rested.
Then God created Woman,
Since then, neither God nor man has rested.
That is it for tonight, my friends. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week. My love and
very best wishes to you all. Thank you all for the kind words of sympathy about Gwen's
passing. May she rest in peace. Take care, Cheers, Merle.
