We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope. - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A little girl had been to a revival and been happily converted. She came home laughing and singing, her little heart so light and full of joy. “O grandpa,” she cried, rushing into the room where the old man sat, “I have got religion! I have got religion!” He took her by the shoulders and set her down hard on a chair. “You don’t know what religion is. People don’t shout and skip when they have religion. Now, sit still.”
The child sat there a while, then crept away, all the joy and gladness gone from her little heart. She went and climbed on the lot fence, where she went each day to feed sugar to an old donkey. The old donkey put his head up, and as she stroked his face she said pityingly: “Poor old donkey! Poor old donkey! You have got religion— I know you have; your face is long, just like grandpa’s.”

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:
Choose your partners, one and all,
Aspirin, Advil or Tylenol!
Now fling those covers with all you've got.
One minute cold, the next minute hot.
Circle right to the side of the bed,
Grab the tissues and Sudafed.
Back to the middle and don't goof off,
Hold your stomach and cough, cough, cough.
Forget about slippers, dash down the hall.
Toss your cookies in the shower stall
Remember others on the brink
Wash your hands, wash the sink.
Wipe the doorknob, the light switch too,
Now you've got it, you're doing the flu.
Some like it cold, some like it hot,
If you like neither, then get the shot.

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
Driving with my two young boys to a funeral, I tried to prepare them by talking about burial and what we believe happens after death. The boys behaved well during the
service. But at the grave site I discovered my explanations weren't as thorough as I'd thought.
In a loud voice, my four-year-old asked, "Mom?"
"Yes," I whispered.
"What’s in the box?"

College Really A Better Investment Than Stock Market
TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Putting money into a four-year U.S. college education turns out to be a better financial investment than putting money into the stock market.
The rate of return on the money spent to earn a bachelor's degree is 12 percent per year, compared with the long run average annual return on stocks of 7 percent, according to an Arizona State University study, "The Value of Higher Education: Individual and Societal Benefits."
Over the course of a lifetime, those with a college education make $1 million more than people with a high school education.
