~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

"Don't tell a man how to do a thing. Tell him what you want done, and he'll surprise you with his ingenuity." - General George S. Patton

When our children were small they knew how precious they were to Jesus, but I think I had a mind lapse on that, especially one day when I was rushing around trying to get a baby and two little ones to a doctor appointment.

My little girl couldn't find her shoe, and with our coats on, I scolded her in an exasperated and very un-Christlike way.

Quick as a wink her 4-year-old brother grabbed her around the shoulders in a big hug, looked at me in all earnestness, and said: "Mommy! You shouldn't yell at your blessings!"

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

- Author Unknown

It's time to ‘fess up,
We ain't gettin' younger,
‘Stead of gourmet,
It's hot broth that we hunger.

Our bones are a-creakin'
(Though we claim it's the chair)
And somehow the sheen's
Disappeared from our hair.

We droop and we sag,
Where we used to be tight;
A soak in the tub's ...
A wild Saturday night.

Kinda smarts when you realize
As we get to this stage,
When they say ... "What a figure!"
They're talkin' ‘bout our age!

"Don't you just hate it when you go to the doctor, you're sitting on the examination table telling him about your symptoms, and with each new one you describe, he backs a little further away?"
