~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. - Benjamin Mays

Let's just go ahead and be what we were made to be, without enviously or pridefully comparing ourselves with each other, or tying to be something we aren't. - Romans 12:6 (The Message)

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

A large seminar was held for ministers in training. Among the speakers were many well known motivational speakers.

One such speaker boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that wasn't my wife!"
The crowd was shocked!

He followed up by saying, "And that woman was my mother!"

The crowd burst into laughter and he gave his speech, which went over well.

About a week later, one of the ministers who had attended the seminar decided to use that joke in his sermon. As he shyly approached the pulpit one sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head, but it seemed a bit foggy to him.

Getting to the microphone he said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of another woman that was not my wife!"

His congregation sat shocked.

After standing there for almost 10 seconds trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out, "And I can't remember who she was!"

My husband was just coming out of anesthesia after a series of tests in the hospital, and I was sitting at his bedside. His eyes fluttered open, and he murmured, "You're beautiful."

Flattered, I continued my vigil while he drifted back to sleep.

Later he woke up and said, "You're cute."

"What happened to 'beautiful'?" I asked him.

"The drugs are wearing off," he replied.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Your Trivia section from April 20, 1999, OPTIONAL ACCESSORY II, comes from Randy Cassingham's e-mail list called THIS IS TRUE and is therefore copyrighted. http://www.thisistrue.com/ Thanks, Eric Hines

A common psychological phenomenon plays a role in how people form impressions of others. Specifically, researchers have found that when someone attributes positive or negative traits to another person, the listener will often attribute those same traits to the speaker. For example, politicians who allege corruption by their opponents may themselves be perceived as dishonest, critics who praise artists may themselves be perceived as talented, and gossips who describe others' infidelities may themselves be viewed as immoral. - American Psychological Association
