~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

Marriage is like a tango: It takes two, and occasionally one has to bend over backward to keep the dance going.

It was a sports stadium. Eight Children were standing on the track to participate in the running event.

Ready ! Steady !! Go !!!

With the sound of Toy pistol, all eight girls standing in the race track started running.

Hardly had they covered ten to fifteen steps, when one of the younger girls could not cope up with slippery track, tripped and fell down. She was hurt, had bruised her legs at few places. She started crying in pain.

When other seven girls heard this sound, they stopped running, stood there for a while and then ran back to the place where the girl had fallen down. They picked her up, put her on her feet. One among them bent & kissed the girl gently and counseled It all right, dear you will soon be all right! Is it very painful!

All seven girls supported the injured girl, pacified her, two of them held the girl firmly and they all seven joined hands and walked together and reached the winning post.

Needless to say, the sports Officials as well as the watching crowd were dumbfounded by the turn of events ! Then as the girls reached the final line, they burst into a thunderous applause ! Clapping by thousands of spectators filled the stadium like never before ! Many eyes were filled with tears!

Friends this happened in Hyderabad, India recently ! The sport event was conducted by National Institute of Mental Health. All these special girls had come to participate in this event and they were spastic children.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Abraham Lincoln
Below are seven of his quotes.

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?

No man is good enough to govern another man without that other's consent.

Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?

You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was.

Whatever you are, be a good one.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.

Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

My oldest daughter insisted that her true love speak with me, man to man, about his marriage intentions. She had met him overseas and, while I liked everything I'd heard about him, we'd never been introduced. I'm just old-fashioned enough to believe that parental blessing is still necessary for a truly happy union, so I eagerly anticipated our first face-to-face encounter.

The big meeting was scheduled to take place in my office. At the appointed hour, my daughter walked in with a good-looking but anxious fellow in tow. Before I could say a thing, he dropped to one knee, took my right hand in both of his, gazed earnestly up at me and said, "Will you be my father-in-law?" I couldn't bless them fast enough.

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Rocked in a Bay Area cradle of left-wing values, Craigslist has built a huge national community by word of mouth... it gets more than 3 billion page views per month (10 million actual users a month), ranking it seventh on the Net, not so far behind Google and eBay.
