#20 All Time Favorite Post- Change Your Thinking…


It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking.. 

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.

His bed was next to the room’s only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back..

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.


The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.

Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band – he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

====================== 

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall.

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, ‘Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.’

Epilogue:

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.

Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.

If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy.

‘Today is a gift, that is why it is calledThe Present .’ 

The origin of this letter is unknown, but it brings good luck to everyone who reads it and shares to everyone…

Have a beautiful Sunday to all!

#29 All Time Favorite Post- When Used Against Loved…

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked up a stone
and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the
child’s hand and hit it many times; not realizing he was using a wrench.

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.

When the child saw his father…..with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when
will my fingers grow back?’

The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it
a lot of times. Devastated by his own actions…….sitting in front of
that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.
The next day that man committed suicide. Anger and Love have no limits;
choose the latter to have a beautiful,lovely life….. Things are to be
used and people are to be loved, But the problem in today’s world is that,
People are used and things are loved…

-Anonymous-

During the day, be careful to keep this thought in mind:

“Things are to be used, but People are to be loved …”

Be yourself….

This is the only day we HAVE. Have a nice day.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Watch your words; they become actions. 

Watch your actions; they become habits.

Watch your habits they become character.

🙂 I know you love this one…

 Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Spread LOVE, and True Joy, Happiness  and Love will always be by your side 🙂

Enjoy, And Have Fun Blogging Everyone!

Remembering My Mom On Mother’s Day

My mom with my youngest sister and little brother and me in my favorite orange mini-dress 🙂

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL MOMS!!!

Every time I feel gloomy or hurt
I come to your side for comfort
You’re the mom I know since birth
The person who’d remain my mirth…

You’re the woman who knows me better
You’d understand my needs and want
That even though how knotty those were
You’d come to save me from any avalanche,
You wouldn’t mind this, nothing else matter
For you would want me safe from the errant

You’re always available for me
No matter how busy you may be
How you’d wish, all the answers you’d give
And all the things I seek in life, I’d receive

You’re not only a mom but a best friend
You’d honestly tell me all my mistakes
Because you wouldn’t stand me to rend
But you’d stay with me ’til my heart rakes

Yes there were times we would fight
Obviously with our generation gaps, it’s quite
But you’re cool you’d never doubt my insight
You’d let our conflict flow and bring them to a light

We wouldn’t always agree in any thing
And may have some misunderstanding
I would show you my tantrum, all of my whining,
My bad behavior and all of my misgiving
Yet you would never tolerate them by ignoring
Rather you’d choose to tame me with fair scolding
Sure, you’d get furious or peeve from my complaining
But still your heart would be quick in forgiving

You would always manage to calm down
You’d open your big heart and wide mind
And you’d accept the all of me to understand
To make me realize that my life had just begun
For you knew that everything you have done
Were for my wellness when time comes that you’re gone…

Everything that you have taught me
Ever since when I was little were all true
Today, that I am a Mom myself, I agree
For I have understood them all out through
Your love is unconditional and eternally…

My Mom Her Sweetness And Loveliness

And

When I feel happy and worry-free
As I always am
Still you are always around,
And here you would come…
We would share all the joys all year round
And no matter how far you are
Or near or just around,
You would make me feel your presence
You would reach out to me
You would make me feel the essence
Of your loving touch, so warm and profound
That I would hear my heart pound heavenly!

Oh, we would truly feel blessed and blissful
We would celebrate together and be fruitful…

And you would wish the whole world to know
That I’m your daughter, so proud to have me
And you are my mother, who’d support me grow
To be smart and strong…I really am so happy!
You never gave up on me, so I’d keep my glow,
Oh, my mother… My life I owe you… I thank thee…

I love you Mom…

Happy Mother’s Day To All!

A Mother’s Day Greeting From My Son

I am so happy to have received this from my son Deu 🙂
You know even just as simple as this when it would come from your child, you’d feel heaven and so blessed…

Here is a photo of him when he was just  a baby…

And here he is now!

He is also talented!
At 11 years old, check out his creation…

I asked him how did he do this when we do not have any sewing machine at home?
He told me that he just sewed them by his hands.
Well, of course since I am his mom, I am so proud and impressed! 🙂

Awesome! Isn’t it?

Thanks so much my son.
I love you and I’m so proud of you!

The Wedding… contrib by Laura N.

I received this via e-mail…thought it would be nice to share…. 🙂

 

Her name is Katie Kirkpatrick, 21 yrs old. Next to her is her fiancé, Nick, 23.
This picture was taken prior to their wedding January 11th, 2005.
Katie has terminal breast cancer and spends hours in chemotherapy.
Here Nick awaits while she finishes one of the sessions…

Even in pain and dealing with her organs shutting down, with the help of morphine,
Katie took care of every single part of the wedding planning..
Her dress had to be adjusted several times due to Katie ‘s constant weight loss.

An expected guest was her oxygen tank. Katie had to use it during the ceremony and reception.
The other couple in this picture is Nick’s parents, very emotional with the wedding and to see their
son marrying the girl he fell in love when he was an adolescent.

Katie , in a wheel chair listening to her husband and friends singing to her.

In the middle of the party, Katie had to rest for a bit and catch her breath.
The pain does not allow her to stand for long period of time.

Katie died 5 days after her wedding.

To see a fragile woman dress as bride with a beautiful smile
makes you think…. happiness is always there within reach, no matter how long it lasts……
lets enjoy life and don’t live a complicated life.

Work as if it was your first day.
Forgive as soon as possible.
Love without boundaries..
Laugh without control
and never stop smiling.
Please pray for those suffering from cancer.
We all have close to our heart.
Keep this going.
Prayers are always answered.

It’s Valentine’s Day

Color red is in and hot


Must everyone is ready

To have a sweetheart…


But in this VALENTINE

BLUE HEART is mine


Pulse rate is low

And no longer glow

Last drug failed to work on me

I fear it’s gonna be over

 

But then, you have stayed with me

Exposing little red left under

 

Truly you are a love giver

My Blue Heart now would soon recover


Happy Valentine’s Day,

My dear lover!


Happy Valentine's Sweetheart

 

To those with blue hearts this Valentine’s Day, cheer-up.  Things will soon patch-up… 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day To All!

“What do you do all day?”

===============================================================

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and 20 wrappers strewn all around the front yard.

The door of his wife’s car was open, and so the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.

In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife.. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door.

As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel.

She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went..

He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’

She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?’

‘Yes,’ was his incredulous reply?

She answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it..‘ 

Ooooops! Keep it cool honey 🙂

How about a little kitty massage?

Is there a message in this post?  I would like to hear a word or two from you guys…
