Hello My Friends ~~ A bit late for my Sunday post as I have had a few computer problems
And also have had a horrible week, so please forgive me.
My son-in-law passed away after a long illness with kidney problems and my poor daughter
is devastated and you can't imagine how sad I have been to hear her small voice and how
she can't sleep as for four years she has slept with one ear cocked to listen for her husband
so now maybe she can sleep, from sheer exhaustion. His funeral was yesterday and went off well with lots of hugs and crying together. Plenty from myself for my Julie. Her husband was in agony so that pain will be gone now thankfully. RIP Laurie.
First item tonight is from Mountain Wings.
My Mother Said To Me ===================== My mother said to me, "If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope." Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso. ~Pablo Picasso~--
Another from Mountain Wings Called ~~ Tomorrow ~~
A bit late for this year and was meant to be an earlier post which
I missed posting. Sorry my friends ---Let's pretend.
Tomorrow begins a new year. It's really just another day. Nothing changes really.Most will continue on the path that they are on. Many will make New Year's resolutions
and the vast majority of them will be broken by Valentine's Day.
Today is my birthday. It's a special day but it's really just another day. I will continue on the path that I've been on for years. I'm trying to improve, which is the path that I've been on
That's the path that I shall continue to be on. If you are not where you think you should be, I would not suggest that you try to change things tomorrow.
Why...because that is what most other people will do and they do it simply because it's supposedly a special day. Your change of path will only come when either you make up your mind that you are going on a new path because you are determined to change OR the pain becomes unbearable on the current path.
The problem with the latter is that once the pain eases you often return to the old path. The true BIRTHday is the day that you move from one path to another one (a better one) and stay on it. When that day comes mark it down on your calendar, for that day is really the special one.
And another from Mountain Wings
Kids Advice on Love and Marriage ================================= HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHOM TO MARRY? You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. * Alan, age 10 No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with. * Kirsten, age 10 WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED? Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then. * Camille, age 10 No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married. * Freddie, age 6 HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED? You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids. * Derrick, age 8 WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON? Both don't want any more kids. * Lori, age 8 WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE? Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. * Lynnette, age 8 On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. * Martin, age 10 WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR? I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns. * Craig, age 9 WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE? When they're rich. * Pam, age 7 The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that. * Curt, age 7 The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do. * Howard, age 8 IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? I don't know which is better, but I'll tell you one thing. I'm never going to have sex with my wife. I don't want to be all grossed out. * Theodore, age 8 It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. * Anita, age 9 HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED? There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there? *Kelvin, age 8 "And the #1 Favorite is........" HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK? Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck. *Ricky, age 10
Well my brother has arrived and was a big surprise, but I cannot concentrate, so again I must apologize and hope to do better next week. I hope you are all well and enjoying your lives my
friends. My love and best wishes to you all Cheers, Merle.
