~~~~~~~ WITANDWISDOM™ - April 27, 1999
Now is no time to think of what you do not have. Think of what you can do with what there is. - Ernest Hemingway
(Angela Conklin via E-zine: INSPIRE http://www.infoadvn.com/inspire/)
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A famous singer had been contracted to sing in a Paris opera house, and ticket sales were booming. In fact, the night of the concert found the house packed and every ticket sold. The feeling of anticipation and excitement was in the air as the house manager took the stage and said, "Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your enthusiastic support. I am afraid that due to illness, the man whom you've all come to hear will not be performing tonight. However, we have found a suitable substitute we hope will provide you with comparable entertainment." The crowd groaned in disappointment. The environment turned from excitement to frustration.
The stand-in performer gave the performance everything he had. When he had finished, there was nothing but an uncomfortable silence. No one applauded. Suddenly, from the balcony, a little boy stood up and shouted, "Daddy, I think you are wonderful!" The crowd broke into thunderous applause.
We all need people in our Lives who are willing to stand up once in a while and say, "I think you are wonderful."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Realizing at the last minute that it was his father's birthday, a teenage boy rushed to the corner store to grab a card. He quickly found a son-to-father card, but neglected to read it carefully.
Later when his father opened his gifts, he was surprised to read aloud, "Happy birthday to a wonderful Dad. Now that I'm a father too . . ." (Joke A Day
OFF THE WIRE
A Virginia teenager who tossed his line into the muddy waters of the Maury River didn't reel in a swordfish - he got the actual sword, a Civil War artillery officer's saber.
