A Former College of Mine Emailed This to Me and I Wanted to Share – LOVE THIS!!!

Those of You Born  1930 – 1970

At the end of this Email is a quote of the month by Jay Leno.. If you
don’t read anything else, Please Read what he Said.
Very well stated, Mr. Leno.

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE
1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s!

First, we survived being born to mothers
Who smoked and/or drank while they were
Pregnant.

They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing,
Tuna from a can and didn’t get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs
covered with bright colored lead-base paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles,
Locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode
Our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads.

As infants & children,
We would ride in cars with no car seats,
No booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no
brakes.

Riding in the back of a pick-up truck on a warm day
Was always a special treat..

We drank water
From the garden hose and not from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends,
From one bottle and no one actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon.
We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar.
And, we weren’t overweight.
WHY?

Because we were
Always outside playing…that’s why!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day,
As long as we were back when the
Streetlights came on.

No one was able
To reach us all day. And, we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps
And then ride them down the hill, only to find out
We forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes
a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo’s and X-boxes.
There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable,
No video movies or DVD’s, no surround-sound or CD’s,
No cell phones, No personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms. WE
HAD FRIENDS
And we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth
And there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt,
And the worms did not live in us
Forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays,
Made up games with sticks and tennis balls and,
Although we were told it would happen,
We did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and
Knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just
Walked in and talked to them.

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team.
Those who didn’t had to learn to deal
With disappointment.
Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law
Was unheard of.
They actually sided with the law!

These generations have produced some of the best
Risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever.

The past 50 years
Have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility,
and we learned how to deal with it all.

If YOU are one of them?
CONGRATULATIONS!
You might want to share this with others
who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the
lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives
for our own good.

While you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know
how brave and lucky their parents were.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house
with scissors, doesn’t it ?

The quote of the
month is by Jay Leno:
“With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control,
mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms
tearing up the country from one end to another,
and with the threat of swine flu
and terrorist attacks.
Are we sure this is a good time
to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?’

A Small Prayer!

God determines who walks into your life….it’s up to you to decide who
you let walk away, who you let stay, and who you refuse to let go.
When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God is
all you need.
Father, God bless my friend in whatever it is that You know they may need this
day!
And may their life be full of your peace, prosperity, and power
as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with you.

Amen.

IN GOD WE TRUST

If love is real, why doesn’t it feel the way I’ve always heard it was supposed to feel? Why can’t I feel it all the time? And why does love so often feel lacking, or painful, or both?

My cat was lying over there,
I thought she is fine, but she was over
Although herself was gone forever,
her memories stay with me together…

All of her memories flashback to me
like playing nice like active kitty
running, biting, together with her mommy
and playing with her sister normally

One hour before her death arrival
I watched and observed, her vital
it is unfair for her to leave with full of rivals
that making her more strong and normal…

I saw my cat lying on the mat
I observed her breathing and it was bad
Oh! She is not breathing please help me GOD…

I prayed to God with all my heart
Praying that God will accept the soul of my love
I love you and Goodbye my lovely cat… Until we meet again!

My Life with Riley

 

The following quote by: John Barrymore “Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open.” captures the experience I have had with Riley.

For many years I have been grieving the loss of someone very dear to me and feelings of true happiness or joy have been few and far apart.

One day, not too long ago, it came to me, I realized I was happy! Without searching for it, but never giving-up, Happiness has “snuck” into my life by the name of Riley.

Thank You Riley!

Inspirational Christmas Story.

It was December 25, 1914, only 5 months into World War I. German, British, and French soldiers, already sick and tired of the senseless killing, disobeyed their superiors and fraternized with “the enemy” along two-thirds of the Western Front (a crime punishable by death in times of war). German troops held Christmas trees up out of the trenches with signs, “Merry Christmas.”

Filters: A Life Lesson

In thinking about this, thinking about my life, and as a source, only going back to yesterday as a starting point for ideas on how I can re-new my mind, today, thus setting the foundation for a better day (even though yesterday was a great day, I know that it can be even greater today), these things come to mind as I write:

When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work.

On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of fruits and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember Watching him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite!

When I got Up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad For burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said: ‘Baby, I love burned toast.’

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if He really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, ‘Debbie, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!’ You know, life is full of imperfect things…..and imperfect people. I’m not the best housekeeper or cook.
