~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

There's more merit and satisfaction in being a first-rate truck driver than a tenth-rate executive. - B C Forbes

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings, thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.

Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible, thank you, Lord, that I can see. Many are blind.

Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising, thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.

Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned and tempers are short and my children are so loud, thank you, Lord, for my family. There are many who are lonely.

Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced, thank you, Lord, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry.

Even though the routine of my job often is monotonous, thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.

Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my circumstances were not so modest, thank you, Lord, for life!

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


Don't say you understand when you don't.

Girls are petty; get over it.

Saying something sweet might get you off the hook; doing something sweet will always get you off the hook.

A system in your car only impresses your home boys.

It's good to be sensitive, sometimes.

We are self-conscious by nature; we can't help it.

We are drama queens.

Fashion police do exist.

Hugs and kisses must be given at all times.

Don't make bets about us; we always find out.

Shave; no matter how cool you think it looks, we hate it.

We are beautiful, but make-up helps.

We will always think we are fat, so humor us and tell us we aren't.

A tourist parked his car in downtown Washington, D.C. He said to a man standing near the curb, "Listen, I'm only going to be a couple of minutes. Would you watch my car while I run into this store?"

"What?" the man huffed. "Do you realize that I am a member of the United States Congress?"

"Well no," the tourist said, "I didn't realize that. But that's all right. I'll trust you anyway."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Jerry Rice, longtime star for the San Francisco 49ers football team, is considered one of the greatest receivers in the history of football. Once Black Entertainment Television asked Rice, "Why did you attend a small, obscure university like Mississippi Valley State University in Itta Benna, Mississippi?"

Rice responded, "Out of all the big-time schools (such as UCLA) to recruit me, MVSU was the only school to come to my house and give me a personal visit."

The big-time schools sent cards, letters, and advertisements, but only one showed Rice personal attention.
