~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Got no check books, got no banks.
Still I'd like to express my thanks -
I got the sun in the mornin' and the moon at night.
- Irving Berlin

I want to know, when day is done,
That life has been worth living-
That I have brought somebody joy
Through kind unselfish living.

I want to feel, when evening falls
and shadows quickly lengthen,
That I have made somebody glad,
Some weakness I have strengthened.

I want to know, that come what may
I've left some cheer and gladness;
I want to feel, at close of day
I've banished someone's sadness.

I want to feel at close of day,
That someone's cares were lighter;
Because of kindness I have done,
May someone's life be brighter.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Part 1 of 2 [Sep 12, 22]

Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't have.

The other car collided with mine without giving warning of its intention.

I thought my window was down, but I found it was up when I put my head through it.

I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way.

The guy was all over the road. I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him.

I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my mother-in-law and headed over the embankment.

I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way home. As I reached an intersection a hedge sprang up, obscuring my vision and I did not see the other car.

I was on the way to the doctor with rear end trouble when my universal joint gave way causing me to have an accident.

Preparing for a family vacation, my sister-in-law and her husband explained to their young children that they would be sitting in the car for a very long time. The kids were told they would not be arriving at their destination until after dark, and were warned not to keep saying, "Are we there yet?"

After a few minutes of peaceful driving, their five-year-old daughter asked, "Is it dark yet?"

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

I have read that, "On the campus of Baylor University in Waco, Texas is the library containing the works of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Elizabeth's parents so disapproved of her marriage to Robert that they disowned her.

"Weekly she wrote letters to her parents seeking reconciliation. They never replied and after ten years returned all the letters to her. None had been opened. Today these letters remain as some of her most beautiful in all English literature. Had her parents read only a few of them, reconciliation might have occurred."

And yet through Elizabeth's suffering and disappointment the world has been given her beautiful writings.
