If you're still looking for that one person
who can change your life,
take a look in the mirror.

~~~~~~~~OLD FOLKS ARE WORTH A FORTUNE~~~~~~~~

Old folks are worth a fortune: With silver hair, gold in their teeth, stones in their kidneys, lead in their feet and gas in their stomach. I have become alot more social with the passing of years; some might even call me a frivolous old gal. After all, I'm seeing five gentlemen every day.
As soon as I wake, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go to see John. Then Charley Horse comes along, and when he is here, he takes alot of time and attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of day. (He doesn't like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint). After such a busy day, I'm tired and glad to go to bed--with Ben Gay. What a Life!
P.S. The preacher came to call the other day. He said that at my age, I should be thinking about the here-after. I told him I do - all at one time. No matter where I am - in the kitchen or down in the basement, I ask myself, "Now what am I here after?"

Have a Super Saturday!!

Sandy,
(I came across this, and it said that a teenage girl with cancer wrote this, and that she wanted
as many people as possible to read this.)
So I'm sharing this with you, and hoping you can share this with someone, too.
emoticon emoticon SLOW DANCE emoticon emoticon
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round? Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Do you run through each day? On the fly?
When you ask how are you? Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done, do you lie in your bed, with the next hundred chores
running through your head?
You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Ever told your child, we'll do it tomorrow? And in your haste, not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die, Cause you never had time to call and say,"Hi"
You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
When you run so fast to get somewhere, you miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift....thrown away.
Life is not a race. Do take it slower. Hear the music, before the song is over.

emoticon emoticon IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER - emoticon emoticon
~~Erma Bombeck~~~(written after she found out she was dying from cancer).

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth
would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less
about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day
because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.
I would never have bought anything just because it was practical,
wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, "Later. Now go get washed up for dinner." There would have been more "I love you's." More "I'm sorry's."
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute...look at it and really see it,
live it .and never give it back. Stop sweating the small stuff.
Don't worry about who doesn't like you, who has more, or who's doing what. Instead,
I would cherish the relationships I have with those who do love me.
I would think about what God HAS blessed me with, and what I am doing each day
to promote myself mentally, physically, emotionally.

After reading this, I realized how many more "I would" add to this list.
"I would" share this with my friends, because my life is pretty wonderful with them in it.
emoticon emoticon Wishing you a Blessed Day emoticon emoticon
