~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Do your best every day and your life will gradually expand into satisfying fullness. - Horatio W. Dresser

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:

My daughter has two cats. They both love hiding pens and small objects under the dishwasher/fridge etc. And if they can pick it up in their mouths, they will walk all over the place with it trying to find someone to play fetch with them.

I washed the dishes a couple of weeks ago and forgot to put my rings away, instead left them lying on the microwave in the kitchen.

When I woke up the next morning my engagement ring was nowhere to be found. I was sooooo upset!! I immediately asked God to return my ring to me and looked in every nook and cranny until I'd run out of time and had to leave for work.

I asked my family if they would all please help search. That evening when I got home I was met by an excited 14 year old. My son had found my ring dangling off the back of the microwave (a place both my husband and I had checked twice). My son serves God and acknowledged the Grace of God.

God is soooo amazing!! I am all inspired to serve God with my whole heart and soul and body........... It blows my mind that God holds the universe in the palm of His hand, but yet he hears me even before a thought is formed in my head. How wonderful!

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

You Know You Are Out of College When . . .

Your potted plants stay alive.

Sleeping in a twin-sized bed seems absurd.

You have to pay your own credit card bill.

Mac & Cheese no longer counts as a well-balanced meal.

"Extended childhood" only really pertains to your salary which is a little less than your allowance used to be.

"Twenty-something" means over-qualified, under-paid and not married.

Jeans, flannels and baseball caps aren't staples in your wardrobe.

You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.

You stop confusing 401k plan with 10K run.

You go to parties that police don't raid.

You don't know what time Wendy's closes anymore.

Your car insurance goes down.

You refer to college students as kids.

You feed your dog science diet instead of taco bell.

Half your conversations with current college students start with, "When I was in college..."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:

Since I had been selling water beds for almost four years, I thought I had heard every question imaginable. But then a customer asked me, "Can you deliver it filled with water?"

Stunned, I replied, "Are you kidding? It would weigh over twelve hundred pounds!"

After a short pause, she said, "Could you do it if I helped you carry it in?"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

A Belgian student has sold the foreheads of himself and his friends to pay for his 20th birthday party.

Kris Dries put up their foreheads as advertising space as he had no money to buy food or drink for the bash.

The eBay auction was won by a marketing firm in Waregem which will foot the bill for all party-goers who have the firm's logo painted on their foreheads for the night.

Any who do not want their foreheads used for advertising can still go to the party but they have to pay their own way.

Kris said he was delighted the winning bidder had agreed to pay for up to 1,750 worth of food and drink.

He said: "I was hoping to make 200 euro. Thanks to the sponsor I will be able to have an unforgettable 20th birthday.

"I'm looking for a suitable location, as I will now be able to invite a lot more friends than the 50 I had in mind."
