I'm on the road again taking 30 puppies and 4 aduld dogs to Lindenwold and Pompton Lakes, NJ. I hope the snow has melted before I get there. I'll be back to you folks Saturday night.
Also, you don't live sixty-three years and not learn something about life. And I have learned plenty, but I can't remember what most of it is. So when a friend of mine emailed this to me, I thought you might fined something you agree with, or have learned and didn't know it, or you forgot and this refreshes your memory. Anyway, enjoy:
I’ve Learned A Lot
I’ve learned…… that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
that the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.
that having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world.
that you should never say no to a gift from a child.
that I can always pray for someone when I don’t have the strength to help him in some other way.
that no matter how serious your life requires you to be, everyone needs a friend to act goofy with.
that sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.
that we should be glad God doesn’t give us everything we ask for.
that it’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.
that under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.
that the Lord didn’t do it all in one day. What makes me think I can?
that you can make someone’s day by simply sending them a little note.
that you can tell a lot about a man by how he handles these things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.
that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’ve gone from your life.
that making a ‘living’ is not the same as making a ‘life.’
that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People need and love human touches – holding hands, a warm hug or just a friendly pat on the back.
that I still have a lot to learn.
that sometimes people just need a little something to make them smile and to let them know that you are thinking about them.
Also, I made the offer on the post before last to show you my cods (that’s balls to those of you who don't know what cods are.) So after no responses came pouring in, I decided to show you anyways.
