Just a Lazy Saturday

Saturday, February 27, 2010

In the past few weeks, I have developed a practice of taking what I considered to be inspirational messages that came across my desk in the form of e-mails and posting them as my daily blog, sharing the inspiration with my friends.

Today, the e-mail came up dry, except for a quote from Elvis Pressley: "Don't let you head get too big or it will break your neck"

I hate when there is nothing to share but I did receive a bit of humor and philosophy from Maxine which I will share:

As You Slide Down the Banister of Life, Remember

1. Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert have written
An impressive new book. It's called ........
'Ministers Do More Than Lay People'


2. Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink
And be Mary..

3. 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 taxes
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.

12. As you slide down the banister of life, may
The splinters never point the wrong way...
Be who you are and say what you feel... because those that matter... don't mind...and those that mind...don't matter!

Be Thankful!

Friday, February 26, 2010

WE MUST BE THANKFUL FOR ...
By M. Raymond Sheppard

We must be thankful for the offer and willingness to help, not the outcome.

We must be thankful for the challenges, not just the successes,

We must be thankful for the spirited debate, not just the resolution,

We must be thankful for the child that tries to cheer us up when we are down and the child that tries to help another child, not just the child that does his/her chores,

We must be thankful not just for what the Creator has done, but what he/she hasn't done,

We must be thankful for our trails and tribulations, not just our glorious victories,

We must be thankful for the clothes on our back, and not ungrateful for the style they lack.

We must be thankful for the $10 we might have today that we didn't have yesterday, and let go of the fact that we did not get the thousand we wanted,

We must be thankful for the hug our loved one gave to us, although they did not say they loved us,

We must be thankful for the meal we had today, and not dwell on the one we might have dreamed of,

We must be thankful for the job we have now, not just the one we might get or wished we had,

We must be thankful for that friend that is with us and supports us, not just the best friend that isn't there,

We must be thankful for the survivors of natural catastrophes, and be thankful for the memory of those we might have lost,

We must be thankful for all things.

Make a Commitment

Thursday, February 25, 2010

"COMMITMENT is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words.

It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism."

There is No Such Thing as Can't

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

There is no such thing as can't, only won't. If you're qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change. Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes! But you can't blame other people or society in general. It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people.

Take Action!

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone, which can become a watered-down, occasional hope that you'll get to tomorrow. Intention without action is useless.
