"Truth becomes too strong unless softened by love, and love becomes weak unless strengthened by truth." - By Loren Seibold via http://www.witandwisdom.org
~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
I AM THANKFUL FOR . . .
By Nancie J. Carmody via http://www.witandwisdom.org
. . . the mess to clean up after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.
. . . the taxes I pay because it means that I'm employed.
. . . the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.
. . . my shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.
. . . the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.
. . . all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.
. . . that lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that I can hear.
. . . the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.
. . . the lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means I have a home.
. . . my huge heating bill because it means that I am warm.
. . . weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means that I have been productive.
. . . the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am alive.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
MY DAD ALWAYS SAYS
If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.
I don't get even, I get odder.
I am having an out of money experience.
I am in shape. Round is a shape.
I'm not afraid of heights, I'm afraid of widths.
Anything free is worth what you pay for it.
It hurts to be on the cutting edge.
If marriage were outlawed, only outlaws would have in-laws.
If it weren't for me, there'd just be a pile of my clothes on the floor.
I am not a perfectionist. My parents were though.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Mary Siegel was almost crazy with her three young kids. She complained to her best friend, "They're driving me nuts!! Such pests. They give me no rest and I'm half way to the funny farm."
"What you need is a playpen to separate the kids from yourself," her friend said.
So Mary bought a playpen. A few days later, her friend called to ask how things were going.
"Superb! I can't believe it," Mary said. "I get in that pen with a good book, a chocolate bar, and the kids don't bother me for hours!"

Ants are so much like human beings as to be an embarrassment. They farm fungi, raise aphids as livestock, launch armies into war, use chemical sprays to alarm and confuse enemies, capture slaves, engage in child labour, exchange information ceaselessly. They do everything but watch television.
