WITandWISDOM(tm) - November 29, 1999
I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else fails away. I want to know if you can be alone with yourself, and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments. - Oriah Mountain Dreamer

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
THINGS CHILDREN SAY & DO:
A first-grade teacher was overseeing her students as they experimented with their desk computers. One boy sat staring at the screen, unsure how to get the computer going.
The teacher walked over and read what was on his screen. In her most reassuring voice, she said, "The computer wants to know what your name is," then she walked over to the next child.
The boy leaned toward the screen and whispered, "My name is David."

"Well," demanded the boy. "Why isn't it?"

Soon after Christmas, my three-year-old granddaughter Robyn was looking at a wedding picture of family friends. "What is Allie doing?" she asked her mother.
"She's getting married."

When my mom was on a health kick, she decided to push the limits with our family of picky eaters. She fixed a soup-like mixture of lentils and barley that none of us was eager to try.
We dreaded dipping into the grayish goop. We looked at each other, hoping someone would have the courage to ask Mom if we could skip dinner.
Fortunately, it was four-year-old Katrina's turn to say the blessing, and she summed up our sentiments perfectly when she prayed, "Dear Lord, please take us to a restaurant."
~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
