Sometimes we just need to be reminded!

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill.
In the room of 200, he asked,
'Who would like this $20 bill?' Hands started going
up. He said, 'I am
going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this. He
proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked,
'Who still wants it?' Still the hands were up in the air. Well, he
replied, 'What if I do this?' And he dropped it on the ground and
started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.
Now, who still wants it?'Still the hands went into the air.
My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.
No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because
it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and
ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the
circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has
happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless
to those who DO LOVE you.
The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know,
but by WHO WE ARE and WHOSE WE ARE. You are special
Don't EVER forget it.

The best living will ever!

I, (your name here), being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means.

Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead politicians who couldn't pass 7th grade biology if their lives depended on it, nor lawyers and/or doctors interested in simply running up my bills.

If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:

Glass of wine
Cold Beer
Chicken fried steak
Cream gravy
Mexican food
French fries
Ice cream
Cup of tea

It should be presumed I won't ever get better. When such determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and any attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes, let the "fat lady sing, and call it a day!

Have a drink. It's 5 o'clock SOMEWHERE!

I've learned.... That life is tough, but I'm tougher.
I've learned.... That opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss.
I've learned.... That when you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere. I've learned.... That one should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them.
I've learned.... That a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
I've learned.... That everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it.
I've learned.... That the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.

two wolves

Two Wolves
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: 'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.'

P.S.:Wishing u all a blessed 2009!
