~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
THE SONG OF MY LIFE
by Heather Eick, (c) 1999
squeaking and straining
my life is playing
slightly out of tune
tighten a string
mend a voice
keep the heart in rhythm
flat or sharp
the melody changes
never sounding right
I wish that I might
delight you with
a perfect song
sweet and pure
soloing in your ear
and yet, I know
when I perform
it is you the crowd hears
and my mistakes are muffled
in the symphony of your love.
~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
IT HAS BEEN SO HOT AND DRY THAT:
A parent prayed, "I sure wish it would rain, not for me, because I've seen it, but my 7-year old, hasn't."
You no longer associate bridges with water.
Your seat belt makes a great branding iron.
If the temperature drops below 90, you get a little chilly.
You discover it takes only two fingers to drive your car.
Hot water now comes out of both sides of the tap.
It's noon, the kids are on summer vacation & not a soul is on the streets.
Your fear is that if you have a wreck and you wind up lying on the street, you may cook to death.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Sandy began a job as an elementary school counselor and she was eager to help. One day during recess she noticed a girl standing by herself on one side of a playing field while the rest of the kids enjoyed a game of soccer at the other.
Sandy approached and asked if she was all right. The girl said she was. A little while later, however, Sandy noticed the girl was in the same spot, still by herself.
Approaching again, Sandy offered, "Would you like me to be your friend?"
The girl hesitated, then said, "Okay," looking at the woman suspiciously.
Feeling she was making progress, Sandy then asked, "Why are you standing here all alone?"
"Because," the little girl said with great exasperation, "I'm the goalie!"
