Remember you make a difference. ~ Noah benShea

Friday, February 10, 2012

1. Being broke is not the same as being broken, losing money is not the same as being lost, and finding your balance is not something you can do on a balance sheet.

2. Don't confuse having less with being less, having more with being more, or what you have with who you are.

3. Slow down. What you're chasing may be trying to catch you.

4. Prayer is a path where there is none.

5. Put your faith and not your fears in charge.

6. God only gave you two arms. If you're busy hugging the past you can't embrace the future.
Don't let the past kidnap your future.

7. This too shall pass. Change is the only constant. In order to take a breath you must release your breath.

8. Do what you can, but never forget that letting go is very different from giving up.

9. Break the rules that are breaking you. Tough times don't require you to be tough on yourself. Find the courage to suffer happiness.

10. Remember, remember, remember... Things don't have to be good for you to be great.

the $100 donkey

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

A Cajun named, Jean Paul, moved to Texas and bought a donkey from an old farmer named Ben for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day. The next day, Ben drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some bad news. The donkey died."

"Well, then, just give me the money back," said Jean Paul

"Can't do that. I went and spent it already." Replied Ben

"OK, then. Just unload the donkey," said Jean Paul.

"What ya going to do with him?" asked Ben.

"I'm going to raffle him off," said Jean Paul.

"You can't raffle off a dead donkey!" uttered Ben.

"Sure can. Watch me. I just won't tell that he's dead," said Jean Paul.

A month later Ben met up with the Cajun and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"

"I raffled him off, I did. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898," said Jean Paul.

"Didn't anyone complain?" inquired Ben.

"Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back,” said Jean Paul.

    Wow, what a collection, thanks! They are perfect :-) And I know because I have ten cats in my family. #1 reminds me of a video I did for multimedia class a while back. The assignment was to teach a new skill, so I did herding cats. Would you like to see? Sorry for the tinny sound in the middle - I am totally blaming the camera. But the wobbly parts are my fault.

    I liked them all, but the idea of cat haters coming back as mice is the topper. I don't believe in incarnation but the idea brings pleasure.

    I especially like the last one. There is one more though. Dogs have masters - cats have staff.

Practice makes......imperfect?

Monday, February 06, 2012

A woman walked into the elevator tossing her keys up in the air and catching them. After one too many tosses, she dropped the keys, and we watched as they disappeared into the crack between the open doors and the floor.

I felt terrible for her. Or I did until she cried, "Oh no! Not again!"

Had two deaths at work this week. Bummer! First one was Dennis former FAther in law. A great guy. The second was at the end of the day Friday - 3;30 - long time resident, Dr Coffin. Apparently he had died in his sleep the night before. I could tell my insides were reacting to the news and whether I had to contact the daughter. Luckily Dennis showed up in time to do that…or the police did. Too much drama. I know in my guts that they are having a great time (a lot due to the fact that both Howard and Richard let Bob know that everything was alright with them) and a lot due to the fact that I cannot believe that the love that we share on earth is a terminal thing. I feel immortal! Just gonna have to shuffle off this mortal coil at some point. The actual shuffling is the only bugaboo I harbor. I am confident of the surprise of the beyond.

    It's always hard to think of life without the people we know. Be stong even if you don't want to be.

God Bless

    Oh my! I'm so sorry! Too much drama, indeed.

I've taken to viewing life as a train trip. Some people get off on a stop before mine. You wave goodbye and see the platform disappear with them still on it, and you're on the train with the others who are still on the trip. Someday I'll be the one on the platform, waving bye and switching trains to start a new trip. It's a pretty picture, but says nothing about how hard reality really is.
