~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Most great men and women are not perfectly rounded in their personalities, but are instead people whose one driving enthusiasm is so great it makes their faults seem insignificant. - Charles A. Cerami

Someone once wrote a letter to the local newspaper that said, "It seems ministers feel their sermons are very important and spend a great deal of time preparing them. I have been attending church service quite regularly for 30 years and I have probably heard about 1500 of them. The awful truth is that I can't remember a single sermon. I wonder if a minister's time might be more profitably spent on something else?"

That Sunday a minister read the letter to his congregation and said he would be interested in any replies the congregation might wish to send him.

The next Sunday the minister reported that he had received many responses, most of them expressions of indignation aimed at the anonymous writer of the first letter. He expressed his thanks for the responses, but said he was most thankful for one letter, which he proceeded to read aloud.

"I have been married for 30 years. During that time I have eaten well over 32,000 meals--mostly of my wife's cooking--but I can't remember the menu of a single meal. Of course, I can recall some of my favorite dishes, but not the menus. And yet, I received nourishment from every single one of them. I have the distinct impression that without them, I would have starved to death long ago."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


A baby usually wakes up in the wee-wee hours of the morning.

A child will not spill on a dirty floor.

A young child is a noise with dirt on it.

A youth becomes a man when the marks he wants to leave on the world have nothing to do with tires.

An unbreakable toy is useful for breaking other toys.

Avenge yourself; live long enough to be a problem to your children.

For adult education, nothing beats children.

If you have trouble getting your children's attention, just sit down and look comfortable.

It rarely occurs to teenagers that the day will come when they'll know as little as their parents.

You can learn many things from children... like how much patience you have.

Summer vacation is a time when parents realize that teachers are grossly underpaid.

The best thing to spend on your children is time.

Corny! ..... But Richard liked it. :)

MOTHER: I'm afraid our son has decided to take up acting.

FATHER: What's so bad about that?

MOTHER: Well; he's gotten so big that whenever he appears in a play . . . he crashes right through the floor.

FATHER: Don't worry about it. It's a stage he's going through...
