Makes you think!!
Makes you think!!
I thought I should share this with you... only take a minute of your time.
I received this from a good friend who had a choice to make.
The story goes that some time ago a man punished his 5-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became even more upset when the child pasted the gold paper so as to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy." The father was embarrassed by his earlier over reaction, but his anger flared again. When he found the box was empty. He spoke to her in a harsh manner, "Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?" The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty. I blew kisses into it until it was full." The father was crushed. He fell on his knees and put his arms around this little girl, and he begged her to forgive him for his unnecessary anger.
An accident took the life of the child only a short time later and it is told that the father kept that gold box by his bed for all the years of his life. And whenever he was discouraged or faced difficult problems he would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.
In a very real sense, each of us as human beings have been given a golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family friends. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.
You now have two choices. You can: * 1- Pass this on to your friends, or * 2- Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart.
As you can see, I took choice No. 1.
Friends are like angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly. Think positive and act. This is nice finding something positive out of every negative, which we don't always manage to do.
I am thankful....
For the partner who snores all night, because he/she is at home asleep with me and not with someone else. (well maybe that saying is not suited for AdultFriendFinder, but you know what I mean)
For the taxes that I pay, because it means that I am employed. (the bastards do take too much tho)
For the clothes that fit a little too snug, because it means I have enough to eat.
For my shadow that watches me work, because it means I am out in the sunshine.
For a floor that needs mopping, and windows that need cleaning, because it means I have a home.
For all the complaining I hear about the government, Because it means that we have freedom of speech. (depends where you live)
For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot, Because it means I am capable of walking and that have been blessed with transportation.
For the pile of laundry and ironing, because it means I have clothes to wear.
For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day, Because it means I have been capable of working hard. (try not to tho)
For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours, Because it means that I am alive.
AND FINALLY. For too much e-mail, because it means I have friends who are thinking of me. THINK POSITIVE!!
