~~~~~~~ WITandWISDOM™ - March 26, 1999
It's not enough to be busy . . . the question is: What are we busy about? - Henry David Thoreau
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
She smiled at a sorrowful stranger.
The smile seemed to make him feel better.
He remembered past kindnesses of a friend
And wrote him a thank you letter.
The friend was so pleased with the thank you
That he left a large tip after lunch.
The waitress, surprised by the size of the tip,
Bet the whole thing on a hunch.
The next day she picked up her winnings,
And gave part to a man on the street.
The man on the street was grateful;
For two days he'd had nothing to eat.
After he finished his dinner,
He left for his small dingy room.
(He didn't know at that moment
that he might be facing his doom.)
On the way he picked up a shivering puppy
And took him home to get warm.
The puppy was very grateful
To be in out of the storm.
That night the house caught on fire.
The puppy barked the alarm.
He barked till he woke the whole household
And saved everybody from harm.
One of the boys that he rescued
Grew up to be President.
All this because of a simple smile
That hadn't cost a cent.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:

"Are you hiring any help?" she asked.
"No," he said. "We already have all the staff we need."
"Then would you mind getting someone to wait on me?" she asked.

Exercising with a Cold or Flu? . . . If you've got a cold or flu, should you continue to exercise? In the case of a cold, reduce your workout by 50 percent. If the reduced workout still is exhausting, cut back more until you find a level that feels comfortable. In the case of the flu, stop working out completely. Take a couple of weeks to recover even after all your symptoms are gone. When you do resume exercise, start slowly and gradually to regain your strength.
